Court Of Frost And Starlight(ACOTAR#3.1) By Sarah J. Maas: Everyone’s freaking excited about this book including me. It’s one of my highly anticipated books of this year. I haven’t gotten my copy yet but I’ll soon. I’ve seen some people couldn’t resist it and read it on their kindle. I’m gonna avoid twitter feed and or anything related to it until I’ve read this book. If you’ve read it, please don’t spoil it for others. 

Legendary(Caraval#2) By Stephanie Garber: Legendary is another book from my highly anticipated list. Last year, I fell in love with Caraval and I’ve been eagerly waiting for this book because we’re finally going to meet the mysterious Caraval master, So, I couldn’t wait to devour it. 

LIFELIK3(Lifelike #1) By JAY KRISTOFF: I actually didn’t know about this book until I’ve read about it at the end of Obsidio. I was so excited that Jay Kristoff is writing a new sci-fi series which sounds pretty awesome. It has a unique concept and I heard great things about the wonderful characters in it. I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

So, what are your most anticipating releases of this month? Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time and have a great day! 😀

    You are so right! I’ve just finished ACOFAS and wondering which one of my 100 to be read books I should read next……before I buy more 😂

    Some of these I haven’t heard of! I just pre-ordered The Surface Breaks!

    My highly anticipated are ACOFAS (which I buy ebooks usually first and if I LOVE it then I’ll buy a physical) which I already got but I have to finish ACOWAR first! I’ve been slacking cause it’s giving me so much anxiety lol!

    Also Legendary! I didn’t LOVE Caraval when I first read it but the more time I had to think about it the more I realized how much I enjoyed it. I just watched The Greatest Showman so I’m in a super circus/carnival mood!

    Song of Blood & Stone looks interesting!

      I love the cover art of the surface breaks! I hope you enjoy the book when you get to it. I’m so excited for you to read ACOWAR. It’s quite intense and emotional. I’m glad you enjoyed Caraval. It’s my favorite read and I really hope Legendary is even more better. Song of blood and stone has mixed reviews but it does sound interesting and I want to give it a shot.
      Thanks for the visit! 😊

        Oh gosh, I got a COFAS and I still am taking forever to pick ACOWAR back up. I’m so anxious just thinking about it haha! I hate when this happens!

      A lot of people are excited about warstorm. I loved the first book in the series but I haven’t read the rest of the series yet. Maybe I should get back to it soon.I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading! ❤️😊

    Soooooo excited for LIFELIK3. I’ve had it preordered for forever it seems like and it’s getting so close to the release date! I’m also really excited for War Storm because this is the finale and I can’t wait to find out how the story all wraps up. I’ve got an ARC of Furyborn that I really need to read before the release date. I’m sure I’ll end up loving it and getting a finished copy too, haha. I’m intrigued by Onyx & Ivory and I know that’s going to be the FairyLoot book for May so I can’t wait to get my box!

      Me too! I’ve heard great things about LIFELIK3 and the concept sounds so amazing. I loved Red Queen but haven’t read the rest of the series yet. I hope you enjoy the finale. Furyborn is one of highly anticipated books and I really hope it doesn’t disappoint me. Hope you great month and happy reading! 😊❤️

        I hope you enjoy the rest of the Red Queen series. The second book kind of took a dip for me personally but I think the third was really good!

    So many books on these I’m looking forward to! There are so many people ahead of me in line at the library for the ACOTAR book, though! 😦

      May is a month of ACOTAR series and it might take you a while to get a library copy. I hope you enjoy it when you finally get to it. 😁

    So I was looking forward to Legendary and then I heard it’s a trilogy and now I’m contemplating waiting until the final book releases so I can binge all of them. Oh man, I don’t know what to do lol. But any who, I was definitely looking forward to Lisa Brown Roberts’ book because her stories are ones I can always count on to be cute and adorable. BTW I need to read RS Grey, thanks for the reminder!

      WHAT? I didn’t know there is a third book in the Caraval series. Thanks for the info! I love binging series but the wait is such a pain. I’ve been waiting four years for the finale of TOG series so I could finally binge it. Lisa Brown’s books are fun to read. I hope you enjoy them.

        I only know cause Arielle on the blog read an ARC of Legendary and she was like there has to be another book in her review 😂. Then it was just released last week? that the final book is coming out in 2019 so I kinda wanna wait to binge them all…….idk….
        HA! Sometimes it’s so worth it to wait and binge, if we could hold off that long lol! I did that with Kagawa’s latest series though.

        I love binge reading the series! It’s very hard to wait when everyone around you raving about it. I’ve been waiting four years for the finale of TOG series. I’m glad that I don’t have to wait long. I can’t wait to get back into the series. I recently finished the talon saga and I loved it. I hope you enjoyed it too.
