january anticipated releases

On January 7, three books will be coming out: Come Tumbling Down, We Used to Be Friends, and Woven in Moonlight.

Come Tumbling Down is the fifth book in Seanan McGuire’s Wayward Children Series, a series that I have grown to love, but have fallen behind on. This book follows one of my favorite characters, Jack, who is queer. That’s all that I really need to know, and I definitely plan on catching up on the series soon.

Amy Spalding’s We Used to Be Friends explores a theme that I have rarely seen in books – the growing apart / breaking up of childhood friends. I wish that a book like this had existed when I was a teen, because I never thought that stuff like this happened (and it happened to me).

Magic, royalty, revenge, and THAT COVER was all it took for Woven in Moonlight by Isabel Ibanez to capture me. Not gonna lie though, it was mostly the cover.

Say Her Name by Zetta Elliott will be published on January 14. As a feminist, it is important to me to be aware of issues that exist outside of my identity. It calls attention to the Black Lives Matter movement and police brutality, as well as celebrating black women.

Say Her Name

 

“Say her name and solemnly vow

Never to forget, or allow

Our sisters’ lives to be erased;

Their presence cannot be replaced.

This senseless slaughter must stop now.”
