  1. Ah I forgot about The Terraformers. Emily Wildeโ€™s Encyclopaedia of Faeries is super charming while also having dark faeries. I’m completely read to read Hell Bent as soon as it drops through the door!

  2. I had Untethered Sky and Fake Dates and Mooncakes on my list too! ๐Ÿ˜ But you’re right, there are SO MANY books coming out that I just can’t wait to get my hands on. I’m excited for Thorn Manor, Fake Dating a Demon, and Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia as well. I hope you enjoy all these books, Annemieke!

  3. I’m reading Mysteries of Thorn Manor right now, and it’s soooo good. Not much of a plot and more slice of life, but that’s exactly what I wanted with these characters. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve got a couple of these books on my list, too . . . and a couple of these have only just now made it to my list. *cough* So many great-sounding books, though!
