Because... I Love this Author

Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott
Release Date: May 2, 2017
Goodreads Summary: DOMINO: A girl with blue hair and a demon in her mind. CAIN: A stone giant on the brink of exploding. MADAM KARINA: A woman who demands obedience. WILSON: The one who will destroy them all. When Madam Karina discovers Domino in an alleyway, she offers her a position inside her home for entertainers in secluded West Texas. Left with few alternatives and an agenda of her own, Domino accepts. It isn’t long before she is fighting her way up the ranks to gain the madam’s approval. But after suffering weeks of bullying and unearthing the madam’s secrets, Domino decides to leave. It’ll be harder than she thinks, though, because the madam doesn’t like to lose inventory. But then, Madam Karina doesn’t know about the person living inside Domino’s mind. Madam Karina doesn’t know about Wilson.

Because... Different Realities

Traveler by L.E. DeLano
Release Date: February 7, 2017
Goodreads Summary: Jessa has spent her life dreaming of other worlds and writing down stories more interesting than her own, until the day her favorite character, Finn, suddenly shows up and invites her out for coffee. After the requisite nervous breakdown, Jessa learns that she and Finn are Travelers, born with the ability to slide through reflections and dreams into alternate realities. But it’s not all steampunk pirates and fantasy lifestyles…Jessa is dying over and over again, in every reality, and Finn is determined that this time, he’s going to stop it… this Jessa is going to live.

Because... Standalone Fantasy

Long May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas
Release Date: February 21, 2017
Goodreads Summary: Freya was never meant be queen. Twenty third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly and the king and those closest to him are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne. Freya may have escaped the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, Freya knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom – and her life. Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisors. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her, but also wanted more power for himself. As Freya’s enemies close in and her loyalties are tested, she must decide if she is ready to rule and, if so, how far she is willing to go to keep the crown.

    Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!
    Genni @ Ready, Set, Read!

  7. In the words of Sheldon Cooper "Yes to all!" Great picks this week I'm so excited about these as well. I hope you enjoy 'em when you get 'em. Thanks for stopping by my WoW post!

  8. Such great choices! I love Scott's books and I am really excited about this new one. Purple cover too? Count me in. I have Traveler! I hope to make time to read it. I hope you enjoy these books when you get a chance to read them!

    Have a fabulous week. :)

    1. Thanks Alyssa! I too love Scott's books and this new one sounds really interesting.

  9. Ooh! I have Long May She Reign on my list too. I like that basically it was fate she is queen.

    Traveler looks interesting. It isn't time travel so that's good. Time travel freaks me out. I'm assuming this is like Hawkgirl and Hawkguy or whatever their names are. Always reborn type thing?

    1. hahaha You are always making me smile Adriana! :)

      I think it is more of alternate realities than time travel so I think you would be safe.
