1. The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black – 01/02/2018
Amazon * Goodreads
Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.
To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

2. The Shadow Weave (Spell Weaver #2) by Annette Marie – 01/12/2018
Amazon * Goodreads
Clio might be a nymph living in exile among humans. And she might possess the rare ability to mimic any magic she sees. And she might have just seriously ticked off the most powerful family of spell weavers in the Underworld.
But she is not in love with an incubus.
Lyre is the rebellious black sheep of said weaver family, and he’s the only reason she survived her recent Underworld “vacation.” He’s also the sexiest thing she’s ever seen. Together, they have to track down a catastrophically dangerous magic—a magic he created, she sort of stole, and they both lost—before his family gets their hands on it. And that means fighting alongside him in a desperate attempt to avert complete disaster.
But she is definitely not in love with him. At least, she’s pretty sure she’s not.
Mostly sure.
Maybe sure?

Lucia knows there’s something special about her daughter and she’ll do anything to protect her, even if that means facing Kyan alone.
Amara is called back home to Kraeshia. Grandma Cortas has her own plans for Mytica’s future. She promises Amara  power, revenge, and dominance if she agrees to be part of her scheme.
Magnus and Cleo‘s love will be put to the ultimate test. Dark magic is causing widespread destruction throughout the kingdom. Enemies across the sea are advancing. And unrest is stirring throughout the land. Is their love strong enough to withstand the outside forces tearing them apart?

4. Assassin of Truths (Library Jumpers #3) by Brenda Drake02/06/2018
Amazon * Goodreads
The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers.
And it’s not your normal bump-in-the-night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. Not to mention there’s an evil wizard trying to use his magical abilities to take her down. Because she has the keys to end his devious plan. That is, once she figures out what to do with them.
With the handsome, cocky, and maybe-perfect-for-her Bastien by her side, Gia travels through the beautiful wizard havens and Mystik covens to gather the answers she seeks. The journey is harrowing, and it pits Gia against someone she loves. But there’s only one way to destroy her enemies―if she can uncover it before they catch up to her.
Because sometimes facing our demons is the only way out.

The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable.
Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra’s family. And when Cyra’s father, Lazmet Noavek—a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead—reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever.
As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost. For Cyra, that could mean taking the life of the man who may—or may not—be her father.

If they can survive the encounter.
Meanwhile, Ember’s brother, Dante, will travel to China with a message for the last Eastern dragons: join Talon or die. With the stakes rising and the Elder Wyrm declaring war, time is running out for the rogues and any dragon not allied with Talon.
The final battle approaches. And if Talon is victorious, the world will burn.

There isn’t a synopsis yet, but I love books by this author, so I can’t wait to pick this book up!

10. A Reaper at the Gates (Ember Quartet #3) by Sabaa Tahir06/12/2018
Amazon * Goodreads

Beyond the Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger.
The Blood Shrike, Helene Aquilla, is assailed on all sides. Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable, while the Commandant capitalizes on his madness to bolster her own power. As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister’s life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.
Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer. But while hunting for a way to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would aid her, and is drawn into a battle she never thought she’d have to fight.
And in the land between the living and the dead, Elias Veturius has given up his freedom to serve as Soul Catcher. But in doing so, he has vowed himself to an ancient power that will stop at nothing to ensure Elias’s devotion–even at the cost of his humanity.

      Me too! I’ve been dying to read Rev’s story! I’m so nervous, yet so excited, to read More Than We Can Tell! And YES, Kagawa’s books are always beyond amazing! Here’s hoping we both love the end to that series. 🙂

  2. Susan (Bloggin' 'bout Books)

    The Library Jumpers books sound good. Anything with “library” in the title does … 🙂

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

    • Jen

      It’s SO much fun! And I always end up googling the library’s they jump to, I had no clue how many gorgeous libraries there were in the world. Now I just need to visit them all! 🙂

      I haven’t read anything by Holly Black either, but Chelsea LOVES her books. I was going to binge read The White Cat this year by her but The Cruel Prince sounds soooo good I may just jump to that lol!

  4. Amber Elise @ Du Livre

    The Cruel Prince is fan-frickin-tastic!

    • Jen

      I’m so happy to hear you loved it so much!

  5. Katrina @ Chased By My Imagination

    Good choices, ‘The Cruel Prince’ is on my list too! I’m a huge fan of Holly Black’s imagination!

    Here’s my TTT 🙂

    • Jen

      I still need to discover Holly Black! Chelsea is dying for release day tomorrow….being able to come home and start devouring that book. I thought I would start with The White Cat but now I don’t know where to start with her books lol.

      • Katrina @ Chased By My Imagination

        I started with her Modern Faerie Tale series and if you like the idea of the Fae, then it’s a great series! I didn’t enjoy White Cat so much, though still good – it’s very different to her other stuff!

  6. Raven

    Great List! I’m so looking forward to the Cruel Prince, More Than We can Tell, and Inferno. I haven’t read the Library Jumpers but I really want to.

    • Jen

      Fingers crossed we both love More Than We Can Tell and Inferno! The funny thing about The Library Jumpers is the first time I read the book I liked it but I didn’t really connect to the characters. Then the 2nd book came out a year later, I thought I’d go back and skim the first for a refresh, but I ended up connecting and loving the characters soooo much. Go figure lol, and then that second book I absolutely loved. 🙂

  7. AngelErin

    Great list! I still need to try a bunch of these series and read the second book in the Sabaa Tahir series. Also, The Cruel Prince and More Than We Can Tell sound so good. Oh, and Spies, Lies, and Allies has such a cute cover I’d be interested just from that lol.
