Weekend Book Buzz – 18/19 November 2017

Weekend Book Buzz

Greetings, book lovers! Boy has it been a busy week for me this week—hence this later-than-usual post. But I’ve ended the week on quite the bookish high, because . . . Nightshade is back! If you’re not familiar with Ronie Kendig’s Discarded Heroes series then I suggest you fix that right now, then prepare yourself for the upcoming release of Azzan’s story. If you were hoping for a shot of adrenaline in your Christmas stocking, this novella will have you covered! I even have a cover reveal for you later in this post!

But first . . .

~ Cover Reveals ~

LygosNovella (2)If you have hung around this blog much, you will know that I am a HUGE fan of Ronie Kendig’s books. Her Discarded Heroes series (which is currently undergoing updating and re-releasing) was my introduction to her books, and I was absolutely hooked. Well, Ronie has a Christmas present for all her Discarded Heroes fans, because a brand new novella will be releasing. If you want a synopsis, you can read that on Ronie’s Facebook page, but let me assure you, it is NOT to be missed! You can be sure I’ll be letting you know when it’s available!



Shame on me for forgetting to include this cover reveal from earlier this month. Amanda G. Stevens has a new book releasing on 1 May 2018 called No Less Days. I’ve made no secret of how much I loved her Haven Seekers series, so I am absolutely itching to read this one! Find out more by clicking here.





FawkesCheck out this cover for Nadine Brandes’ 2018 release! How stunning is that? What’s more, the story itself has me totally intrigued: a historical-fantasy retelling of the Gunpowder Plot. You can learn more on Nadine’s blog (not to mention you can sign up for her newsletter and become a ninja! 😁)





If Not For TheeAmber Lynn Perry has revealed the cover for a Christmas novella in her Daughters of His Kingdom series. It’s not up for pre-order yet, but if you’d like to be the first to know when it is, you can like Amber Lynn’s Facebook page.





Here’s another intriguing story to look forward to in 2018: Thief of Corinth by Tessa Afshar. You’ll have to wait until August to get your hands on a copy of this one, but you can read the synopsis and pre-order on Amazon.





Rel over at Relz Reviewz has yer another one of her fabulous Cover Reveal posts this week with some fabulous covers from Thomas Nelson & Zondervan. Click on the graphic below to go to her post.
