Review in a Nutshell: Fable is the start of an addictive new fantasy series that will have you dreaming of the high seas.
“Keep your knife where you can reach it.
Never, ever owe anyone anything.
Nothing is free.
Always construct a lie from a truth.
Never, under any circumstances, reveal what or who matters to you.”

Fable follows Fable, the daughter of a renown trader, who is abandoned by her father on the shores of an island of thieves with nothing. After four years, she’s eager to get off the island, find her father, and claim her rightful place in his crew. But to do so requires the help of a mysterious trader named West, who isn’t what he seems.
“You weren’t made for this world, Fable.”
This was hard.
There are so many amazing books coming out next month, and narrowing it down to only ten won’t be easy. But somehow, I did it. Keep on reading for the 10 books I’m dying to read next month!

Click here to see my review of the first book, From Blood and Ash!
The sequel to From Blood and Ash, A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire picks up where the first book left off. I can’t say too much here without spoiling book one, but if you haven’t already started this series, you need to.
I may have bitten off more than I can chew.
This month, I want to participate in two challenges:
- ARC August, where you try and trim down your TBR and read as many ARCs as you can (more info here)
- The Disney-readathon, where you pick a team and try to complete challenges to earn points (more info here)
I know that I won’t be able to reach all my goals, but I’m going to spend the next month trying.
