It’s been awhile since I talked about some of my favorite books that came out. So today, I want to round up some amazing releases that you need to pick up, if you haven’t already!
Ruthless Gods (Something Dark and Holy #2) by Emily A. Duncan
[ Review ]
Wicked Saints was one of my favorite reads of 2019, so it’s no surprise that Ruthless Gods is on this list. If you haven’t already delved into this series, you definitely should. The series is a gothic fantasy with a true enemies-to-lovers couple at the center. The second book has even more angst and violence than the first!
Crave (Crave #1) by Tracy Wolff
[ Review ]
Think Twilight but 2020 edition. This book follows a Grace, who must transfer to a mysterious boarding school in Alaska after the tragic death of her parents. There, she meets Jaxon, a dark and mysterious boy who she finds herself drawn to.
Incendiary (Hollow Crown #1) by Zoraida Cordova
Renata Convida is a rebel spy working against the crown, but when her commander is taken captive, she will do anything to save him. As she goes undercover in the palace, she must convince those around her that she remains loyal.
It’s been awhile since I’ve done this type of post! I’m sorry for that, I’ve been making videos of this on TikTok and kept putting off actually writing it down. I would like to blame my not-so-great internet, but it’s really just my fault haha.
Before I start talking about all of the books I’m dying to read this month, I want to mention some of the most memorable reads of the past two months!
Read more to see my favorite April and May reads, as well as my June TBR List!Read More
March was… insane. To say the least.
Thank God for books.
I read 11 books in March, most of them read before quarantine. I was hoping I would read more since social distancing started but instead, I’m struggling to get through books. Before all this, I was reading more than I had in months, so hopefully I’m really hoping I’ll be able to get back to that soon.Read More

Ruthless Gods is the sequel to Wicked Saints, a book that has hurt me way too many times to count. And did Ruthless Gods hurt me? You betcha. I’m in pain. As for what it’s actually about besides causing my suffering- well, it takes place several months after the ending of Wicked Saints, as our main characters try to move forward with the decisions they made, and situations they were left in. I’m sorry that’s vague, but that’s literally all I can say without going into spoiler territory.
