  1. I agree – what a great month again for new releases! My personal must-haves/must-reads:
    – The Darkest Surrender
    – The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
    – Enthralled
    – Daughter of Smoke and Bone

    But I may even pick up the third book in the Fallen Angels series (even though I wasn’t too fond of the first one – I’m curious to see what happens)

    I can’t wait for: Archangel’s Blade, The Darkest Surrender, Hellbent, & Goliath (for my son).
    Also have Envy, Shadow Kin, Sins of the Angels, Tempted & The Rift Walker on my tbr whenever I get around to them.
