It’s a new month, which means that it’s Calendar Girls Books time! I’m a bit late with my post this month, but life happens, you know? This month’s theme is Pumpkin Lanterns (Book That Lit Your Way Out of a Reading Slump) and I’m very excited to see which books got all of the other participants out of reading slumps! Continue reading to see what my top pick is and what other participants have chosen too!
⤖ About Calendar Girls ⬻
Hosted by Katie @ Never Not Reading and Darque Reader Reads. From Katie’s blog: Calendar Girls is a monthly blog event created by Melanie at MNBernard Books, and Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile, and will now be hosted by me, Katie. It is designed to ignite bookish discussions among readers, and was inspired by the 1961 Neil Sedaka song, Calendar Girl. Just like the song, each month has a different theme. Each blogger picks their favorite book from the theme, and on the first Monday of the month reveals their pick in a Calendar Girls post. Make sure to post back to the hostess’s post, and I will make a master list for the month. The master lists allow everyone to see the other Calendar Girls’ picks and to pop on over to their blogs. Thus, we all get to chat about books and even make some new friends!
⤖ My Choice ⬻
Title: Wicked Saints
Author: Emily A. Duncan
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publisher: Wednesday Books (Macmillan)
Published: April 2, 2019
A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.
A prince in danger must decide who to trust.
A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings.
Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war.
In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy.
