Summer & Fall 2019 Releases – 3 Review Teasers

I usually try to write full reviews on Tuesdays, but this past month, I haven’t read anything that I can review. I’ve been focusing a lot on getting ahead and making my way through my BookCon/BEA ARC pile, but because these books won’t be released until later this year, I don’t want to write full reviews just yet.

That said, I still want to talk about them. So while we wait for their release dates to grow closer, here are some quick teasers for a few of the ARCs I’ve been reading.

Read more to hear about some Late Summer/Fall 2019 releases!

Rage (Stormheart #2) by Cora Carmack

Release Date: August 27th, 2019
Publisher: Tor Teen
Page Count: 384 Pages
Genre: YA Fantasy

35677535

Synopsis: “If Aurora knows anything, it’s that choices have consequences. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan. 
In disguise as the rebel Roar, she puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion. But the Rage season is at its peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. Yet these storms are different—they churn with darkness, and attack with a will that’s desperate and violent. This feels like more than rage. It feels like war. ” (Goodreads)

My Thoughts: It’s been a couple of years since Roar came out, so I was really excited to see how this series held up. This book was good, and exactly what I was in the mood for, but it definitely suffers from the second book slump. The writing is kinda meh, and not enough happens in the book to make up for it. That said, I still enjoyed it and look forward to reading book 3!

My Rating: 3.5 Stars

The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett

Release Date: September 3rd, 2019
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Page Count: 384 Pages
Genre: YA Historical Fantasy

43822758

Synopsis: Theodora has always dreamed of traveling with her father on his treasure hunts, but despite her knowledge of ancient relics, he refuses to let her go. Instead, he takes Huck Gallagher, the boy Theo used to think was the love of her life. But when Huck returns from an expedition for the cursed ring of Vlad the Impaler without her father, they must team up to rescue him. With only her father’s journal for clues, the two end up on a dangerous journey into Romania, where a dangerous society is also searching for the ring. And they’ll do anything to get it.

My Thoughts: Jenn Bennett is one of my favorite contemporary authors, so naturally when my friend offered to let me borrow her copy of Jenn’s next book, I jumped on the opportunity. My one warning to anyone going into this book: don’t expect a dark and mysterious historical fantasy. The tone of this book is definitely closer to that of Jenn Bennett’s contemporaries. It’s focused a lot on the romance and family dynamics, while the mystery and fantasy aspects fall a little to the side. I didn’t mind this at all, but I could see someone being disappointed if that wasn’t what they were looking for.

I really did like this book, it went by fast and I loved the characters. This book is the perfect historical fantasy for people intimidated by the genre. It’s light, fast, and reads like her contemporaries.

My Rating: 4 Stars

Well Met by Jen DeLuca

Release Date: September 3rd, 2019
Publisher: Berkley
Page Count: 336 Pages
Genre: Adult Romance

43189874. sy475

Synopsis: When Emily’s sister got in an accident, she dropped everything to help her and her niece. So when said niece needs an adult to volunteer with her at the Renaissance Faire, she agrees. However, what she didn’t expect was to make an enemy of the man running it, Simon, so quick. He has no patience for Emily and is quick with a critique, but once they get on Faire grounds, he changes completely. He turns into a suave pirate and flirts constantly with Emily’s character, but is it real, or is it just the characters they have to play?

My Thoughts: Oh my god this book. I love it so much. I’ve always been interested in Renaissance Faires but this book actually made me make plans to finally go to one. If you’re even remotely interested in Ren Faires, definitely pick this up. But also, if you’re looking for a cute romance with great characters, a perfect small-town setting, family dynamics, and a strong protagonist with painfully relatable flaws, please get this book. I can’t recommend it enough!

My Rating: 5 Stars
