July 2019 Book Releases

Hey, everyone! I am soooo late with this, but things have been crazy for me since the July 4th holiday, but I’m still going to post this July book release list because it’s still relevant! Yay!

For this list, you can find books about crows, terrible wizards, and Mayan gods of death, but what book reigns supreme as my most anticipated choice  for July?

thrawn treason
Release Date: July 23 | Goodreads

“If I were to serve the Empire, you would command my allegiance.”

Such was the promise Grand Admiral Thrawn made to Emperor Palpatine at their first meeting. Since then, Thrawn has been one of the Empire’s most effective instruments, pursuing its enemies to the very edges of the known galaxy. But as keen a weapon as Thrawn has become, the Emperor dreams of something far more destructive.

Now, as Thrawn’s TIE defender program is halted in favor of Director Krennic’s secret Death Star project, he realizes that the balance of power in the Empire is measured by more than just military acumen or tactical efficiency. Even the greatest intellect can hardly compete with the power to annihilate entire planets.

As Thrawn works to secure his place in the Imperial hierarchy, his former protégé Eli Vanto returns with a dire warning about Thrawn’s homeworld. Thrawn’s mastery of strategy must guide him through an impossible choice: duty to the Chiss Ascendancy, or fealty to the Empire he has sworn to serve. Even if the right choice means committing treason.

Why I Want to Read This: It’s a Thrawn book! By Timothy Zahn! Thrawn’s allegiance with the Empire pitted against the allegiance with his people! I know I say this about every Thrawn book, but this might be my most horny adventure with my favorite alien strategist to date! I am beyond losing it for whatever Zahn is going to do to me!

Reading Challenge Update – March 2019

Hey, everyone! Before I get into this reading challenge update, I wanted to thank everyone who has followed my blog recently. It’s so heartening to see, and I just want to express how happy I am about it every time. You guys are awesome!

This one’s going to be a little smaller because I was in a reading slump? Or something? It happens. I was also playing a lot of Yakuza Kiwami 2 and watching Queer Eye, so I honestly can’t be too mad about that. It was a good time.

wildcard
Finished: 3/1/19 | Rating: ★★★★☆

Challenges met:

Wildcard still features the fictional AR game Warcross, though in a lesser capacity than in the first book, and the setting is still in Japan. And I know that the term “ugly” is subjective, but I’ve loathed this cover ever since it dropped, especially when compared to the first book’s. Sorry!

The ABC Book Challenge – H

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to another ABC Book Challenge post. I decided to do this to add more variety to the blog and also because it looked incredibly fun (and so far, it is!). Once again, thank you to Sofii @A Book. A Thought. for introducing this tag to me, and for her support. You should definitely check out her blog if you haven’t already!

Here’s the challenge: Every week (though I have not strictly been following this, haaaa), I’ll have a post sharing my most favorite titles as well as those on my current TBR list that start with the corresponding letter. (For weird letters like Q, X, and Z, I might have to bend the rules a little and just have those letters somewhere in the title, but we’ll see.)

This week is the letter H!
