#OwnVoices, Indian-American, Teen, Muslim rep. It says our MC deals with Islamophobia, so I know this book is going to have a huge impact for me. I need more of this in my life and I have been anticipating this book for months. Read Fadwa’s awesome review of the book.

This is a Debut Novel. I am super excited for this to hit the shelves because this book has a Black & Biromantic Ace for the MC. This is an Ace book, this is huge for me okay. I just think it’s going to be cute and so much fun to read. I loved Kav’s review of this book and you will also.

Title – The Hazel Wood 

Authors –  Melissa Albert

Publication – January 30th, 2018.

Publisher – Flatiron Books

Genres – Fantasy & Young Adult.

A book about a book or is it stories, with characters that come alive or are alive and it’s all dark and grimy fairy-tale ish? Sign me up. I mean, this blurb is captivating enough, then Jasmine gives it 5 stars. That is definitely a must read! I was salivating at her review, and I just knew I had to read it, I’m glad the wait will soon be over!

Title – The Cruel Prince

Authors – Holly Black

Publication – January 2nd, 2018.

Publisher – Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Genres – Fantasy & Young Adult.

I read the title and it screams villainous tendencies from the prince and I am already excited. Faerie, oh my goodness, this is a really great story already. It has the typical storyline, but it already seems like a new favourite. Marle Lu & Victoria Aveyard, both love this book and can’t help but rave about it.
