I tweeted last weekend about how I.. lost control again on NetGalley because “Eh, won’t get approved for all of them!” and then.. got.. approved.. for.. all.. of.. them.. Right. Life! Here’s part one!
As always, covers link back to the Goodreads-page, so feel free to check them out!
TITLE: No Ordinary Boy
AUTHOR: Tracey Mayhew
RELEASED: September 17, 2020
PUBLISHER: Sweet Cherry Publishing
GENRE: MG Fantasy
All Merlin knows is the village where he mixes potions for wary customers, and dreams strange dreams that sometimes come true. Then a mysterious hooded man appears, seeking a boy with no mortal father, and Merlin is taken far away, to a crumbling tower and a ruthless king. To a place where his is not the only magic.
REASON: Ever since reading the queer Arthur retelling – the Once & Future-duology – I’ve been wanting to read more about Merlin and.. this seemed like a great place to start! Plus it’s.. like.. barely 100 pages so it should be off the earc tbr soon, right?
TITLE: shades of lovers
AUTHOR: Catarine Hancock
RELEASED: August 18, 2020
PUBLISHER: Central Avenue Publishing
love comes in many colors.
this is a story
of breaking and healing,
of forgiving but not forgetting,
of understanding and balance.
it is not only something to enjoy,
but something to learn from.
here are the things i did right,
and the many things i did wrong.
i give them to you,
so that when love comes knocking,
you will have a sense of what to do
when you open the door.
Explore the experience of six different relationships in this moving collection that dives into the highs and lows of love.
REASON: Once in a while I try diving into something I don’t read all that often, poetry being one of those things. The cover of this book spoke to me and.. I went for it?
That’s it! Would you read any of these two?
