New Releases Monday #31

In this category I will publish about new books, according to Meaning that I will choose a book each Monday, from the “New Releases” page @ GoodReads. I will choose random covers that speak to me, that are nice or cute, without looking at the author, genre or synopsis.

A Little Hatred

The chimneys of industry rise over Adua and the world seethes with new opportunities. But old scores run deep as ever.

On the blood-soaked borders of Angland, Leo dan Brock struggles to win fame on the battlefield, and defeat the marauding armies of Stour Nightfall. He hopes for help from the crown. But King Jezal’s son, the feckless Prince Orso, is a man who specializes in disappointments.

Savine dan Glokta – socialite, investor, and daughter of the most feared man in the Union – plans to claw her way to the top of the slag-heap of society by any means necessary. But the slums boil over with a rage that all the money in the world cannot control.

The age of the machine dawns, but the age of magic refuses to die. With the help of the mad hillwoman Isern-i-Phail, Rikke struggles to control the blessing, or the curse, of the Long Eye. Glimpsing the future is one thing, but with the guiding hand of the First of the Magi still pulling the strings, changing it will be quite another.

Red Queen

Red Queen

, Book # 1
February 10th 2015
July 27, 2019 August 1, 2019

MARE BARROW'S WORLD IS DIVIDED BY BLOOD—those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own—an ability she didn't know she had. Except... her blood is Red.

To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard—the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince—and Mare against her own heart.

From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.

About the book

Red Queen is the first book in the homonymous series written by Victoria Aveyard. In this first book the story is narrated in first person by Mare, a 17 year old girl who’s about to become 18 and this means the army. I fact in this fantasy world there is a division between people with silver blood, people with privileges, the nobles and with powers (fire, metal, water or mind manipulation) and people, like Mare, with red blood, the commoners without powers and privileges. The ones who don’t have a job by 18 years old, are sent to the front to fight for the Silvers in a war that is so dated that no one remembers what they’re fighting for. But Norda, the nation where the narration takes place, is fighting with the neighbouring nations and only the Reds can fight because their lives don’t count.

Showcase: Strands of Truth

Special “New Releases” this Monday in collaboration with Partners In Crime. This time I’m showcasing a book published on September 10.

Strands Of Truth by Colleen Coble
on Tour September 9 – October 4, 2019


Harper Taylor is used to being alone— after all, she grew up in one foster home after another. Oliver Jackson finally took her under his wing when she was a runaway teenager, and now Harper pours her marine biology knowledge into Oliver’s pen shell research. But she’s never stopped wishing for a family of her own.

So when a DNA test reveals a half-sister living just two hours away, Harper is both hopeful and nervous. Over warm cinnamon rolls, Harper and Annabelle find striking similarities in their stories. Is it just a coincidence that both their mothers died tragically, without revealing Harper and Annabelle’s father’s name?

Oliver’s son Ridge still sees Harper as a troubled teen even all these years later. But when Oliver is attacked, Ridge and Harper find themselves working together to uncover dangerous secrets that threaten to destroy them all. They must unravel her past before they can have any hope for the future.

This week question:

How long does it usually take you to finish a book? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

My answer:

It depends on multiple things. First of all, if I have time to read; second, if I like the book; and third how many pages the book has. I could read a book in less than two days or even three month (usually when I don’t like the book).
