Spring Reads

There are a ton of new books releasing this spring that I am interested in reading. My dates might be slightly off because they are subject to change, but I hope you will enjoy looking into these awesome new books.

March 15
I know, the date for Out of Darkness Rising (and the next book) already passed, but I could not help but share it with you because it looks so great! It was written by Gillian Adams who writes one of my favorite blogs, Of Battles, Dragons, and Swords of Adamant.

March 20
Omega Dragon is the 4th and supposedly final book of the Children of the Bard Series and the 12th book in that story world that began with Raising Dragons. I loved those books from the start and am excited for this newest book. If you're interested, Bryan Davis writes a blog called The Author's Chair that teaches its followers how to write. I love it!

March 30
Crossed Roses is not on Amazon until the day of its release, so unfortunately, I have no links for it. However, you can look at Breeana Puttroff's Facebook page for news or Blog for extra scenes (only for newsletter subscribers, which you can become from the blog). I was enchanted with Seeds of Discovery, book one, told from Quinn's perspective, when I first read it. Crossed Roses is a retelling of Seeds of Discovery from William's perspective, which should be interesting.

April 21
Heir of Hope is the third book in the Followers of the Word series. Since the covers of the other books were remade and because I keep hearing awesome things about them, I am quite interested in reading them now, though I have heard they might be a little dark. We shall see. You can find Morgan L Busse on her Blog/Website.

May 5
I have been following the Selection Series for a while now and was excited when Kiera Cass announced the addition of The Heir to her former trilogy. It continues the story with the princess, the daughter of the main characters, and her selection as she reaches adulthood. I was surprised to find that Kiera Cass is a Christian, as she openly declares on her Website/Blog, along with news about her newest books.

May 12
The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest is the newest medieval fairy tale retelling from Melanie Dickerson. It appears to be a Robin Hood romance entwined with who knows what other fairy tales and romance. I always loved Robin Hood and am curious how Melanie Dickerson will tell this tale. You can find her on her Website which has a link to her blog.

May 25
I have been super curious about the newest Tale of Goldstone Wood, Draven's Light, since Anne Elisabeth Stengl teased us with the cover reveal during her Facebook party for the previous book!.Anne Elisabeth's books are very, very good, funny, and unique and I can hardly wait until its release! Currently, Anne Elisabeth Stengl is holding a fan art contest on her Blog. The deadline for the contest is March 31 and anyone can vote on the winners. There have been some amazing submissions in years past, so be sure to check it out!

So, here are seven awesome releases for the next three months! I haven't even mentioned the non-young adult books I am looking forward to, but seven will have to be enough.

What are some books you are anticipating this spring?


  1. Lovely list! I'd like to read "Draven's Light," because it's in the "Tales of Goldstone Wood" series, which is one of my favorites.
    I read an Advanced Readers Copy of "The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest." I think it tended to lean more on the "Swan Lake" side than "Robin Hood," but it was still a nice read. If you've read and liked Melanie Dickerson's other books, I think there's a good chance you'll like this one, too!

    1. Hello, Grace! The Tales of Goldstone Wood is one of my favorites too!
      I knew there was another fairytale in "The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest," but I was not sure what it was. The description certainly sounded like Robin Hood. I have an advance copy I will be reading soon, and I have read all of Melanie Dickerson's books except the last one, "The Princess Spy."

  2. What a great list! I know I'm looking forward to reading most of these reads! :D
