Six Words: ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER!!!!!!!! We loved ANNA and adored LOLA, and now we get to catch the Stephanie Perkins bug all over again with ISLA. We've held back from reading the free sample pages so we can buy this one to complete the trilogy.

Other new releases we're intrigued by include:

GATES OF THREAD AND STONE by Lori M. Lee. With GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS and SHADOW AND BONE trilogies finished, we need some adventure in a vibrant setting and with cool magic. Looking forward to this one.

OF METAL AND WISHES by Sarah Fine certainly seems unique, and we were pretty much had at the description: "there are whispers of a ghost...that grants wishes to those who need them most." Um, we're in.

This month's Diversity Book Club pick I LOVE I HATE I MISS MY SISTER by Amelie Sarn, translated by Y. Maudet looks seriously good. Check back here in a couple of weeks to learn more about it and what the club has been discussing.

GHOSTING by Edith Pattou has been getting some good publicity and is probably more on the literary side considering this description: "Told through multiple points of view in naturalistic free verse and stream of consciousness." Basically it's about a prank gone bad and how the group of teens deal with the aftermath. Sounds smart and an excellent study in character. Will definitely check this one out!

So what have we missed? Which new releases are you anticipating this month?

Omg I can't wait to read ISLA! So glad it's finally here.

The rest of these all look really good too! If only I read this quickly... (Although these roundups ARE helping me prioritize every month!)

Isla and Gates of Thread and Stone are really high up in the wishlist right now. I need a great Fantasy novels and I hope that Gates of Thread and Stone will be the one! Thanks for sharing :)
