I had trouble deciding what to write about for this week’s freebie, and as I have added so many awesome looking books to my TBR (to be read) list on Goodreads lately, I decided to do a top 5 of my most recent additions. I do have a bad habit of happily clicking away at books I think look great, so have a rather large ‘Want to Read’ list on Goodreads that I probably need to sort out so it actually has books on it I have some chance of reading.
T5W is a group hosted on Goodreads, if you’d like to participate check it out here.
Furyborn by Claire Legrand – I rather spontaneously picked this one up at YALC having not really heard of it before. The cover caught my eye and the blurb sounded interesting so I’m looking forward to reading this one.
Romanov by Nadine Brandes – Another book I picked up at YALC. I know a lot of people out there love Anastasia and the story of the Romanovs. I never actually watched the film Anastasia as a kid (though I have since seen it). I do like historical fantasy novels where fantasy is blended with real history.
The Beautiful by Reneé Ahdieh – I enjoyed the Wrath and the Dawn duology, though it isn’t one of my favourites. The description for The Beautiful just really got my attention. Vampires in New Orleans in the 1800s? You have my attention.
The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White – I’ve not read any of Kiersten White’s other books, but I am an absolute sucker for anything related to Arthurian legends, and this retelling sounds really awesome.
Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim – I recently got Illumicrate’s debut box of this book. The cover is so beautiful and the story itself sounds so imaginative, I just couldn’t help myself.

‘Romanov’ and ‘The Beautiful’ look like very good reads. Like you say, who doesn’t love the thought of 19th century Vampires in New Orleans, very Anne Rice! And I used to really enjoy the ‘Anastasia’ film as a child so I might look at these to read soon. Let me know what they are like when you get around to reading them!
I will do!
