I love sharing what is new on my Netgalley TBR each month. I love talking about the books I’m excited for and it makes me even more excited to read them. There have been so many incredible books on my Netgalley shelf over the years and it is a place that I’ve found so many new authors. Here is what’s new on my Netgalley shelf / TBR!
Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer
In a kingdom where sickness stalks the streets and only the richest can afford a cure, King Harristan and his brother Prince Corrick are forced to rule with an iron fist.
Tessa Cade is a masked outlaw marked for death, but she likes it that way. Together with the mysterious, handsome Weston, she robs from the rich to help the poor, distributing food and medicine to those who need it most.
As it becomes clear that the only way to save her people is to assassinate the King, Tessa must face a deadly mission that will take her to the dark heart of the kingdom … and force her to work with the very people she intended to destroy.
I am so excited for a brand new Brigid Kemmerer novel to be in my life. I cannot lie to you and say I find fantasy novels easy to read but if there is one person out there to make me love fantasy novels, it is Brigid. Her writing is beautiful and captivates me no matter what genre it is. I will be reading this one very soon and sharing my thoughts with you all.

Take Me With You When You Go by Jennifer Niven and David Levithan
Subject: You. Missing.
Ezra Ahern wakes up one day to find his older sister, Bea, gone. No note, no sign, nothing but an email address hidden somewhere only he would find it. Ezra never expected to be left behind with their abusive stepfather and their neglectful mother – how is he supposed to navigate life without Bea?
Bea Ahern already knew she needed to get as far away from home as possible. But a message in her inbox changes everything, and she finds herself alone in a new city – without Ez, without a real plan – chasing someone who might not even want to be found.
As things unravel at home for Ezra, Bea confronts secrets about their past that will forever change the way they think about their family. Together and apart, broken by abuse but connected by love, this brother and sister must learn to trust themselves before they can find a way back to each other.
I love all of Jennifer Niven’s books and I’m a huge fan of David Levithan’s books. So, when I found out that they were releasing a book together I could not contain my excitement. I am so excited to read this one very shortly and I am sure it is one that I will fly through. I’m interested to see how their writing works together as well.

Green Rising by Lauren James
Gabrielle is a climate-change activist who shoots to fame when she becomes the first teenager to display a supernatural ability to grow plants from her skin. Hester is the millionaire daughter of an oil tycoon and the face of the family business. Theo comes from a long line of fishermen, but his parents are struggling to make ends meet.
On the face of it, the three have very little in common. Yet when Hester and Theo join Gabrielle and legions of other teenagers around the world in developing the strange new “Greenfingers” power, it becomes clear that to use their ability for good, they’ll need to learn to work together. But in a time of widespread corruption and greed, there are plenty of profit-hungry organizations who want to use the Greenfingers for their own ends. And not everyone would like to see the Earth saved…
As they navigate first love and family expectations, can the three teenagers pull off the ultimate heist and bring about a green rising?
I am unbelievably excited for a brand new Lauren James book to be in my life. Lauren is my favourite author and her books always grip me tight and then blow me away. The premise of this one sounds so unique and interesting and I cannot wait to see how Lauren’s signature writing style takes it.

The Hawthorne Legacy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
SYNOPSIS FOR THE FIRST BOOK TO AVOID SPOILERS
She came from nothing.
Avery has a plan: keep her head down, work hard for a better future. Then an eccentric billionaire dies, leaving her almost his entire fortune. And no one, least of all Avery, knows why.
They had everything.
Now she must move into the mansion she’s inherited. It’s filled with secrets and codes, and the old man’s surviving relatives – a family hell-bent on discovering why Avery got ‘their’ money.
Now there’s only one rule: winner takes all.
Soon she is caught in a deadly game that everyone in this strange family is playing. But just how far will they go to keep their fortune?
I read the first book in this series last year in a matter of hours. So, when I saw that the second book was on Netgalley, I’ve never requested a book quicker in my life. I am beyond excited to read this one very soon and I am saving it to power through one afternoon! I cannot wait!
