1) The Hidden Oracle ( The Trials of Apollo #1 ) by Rick Riordan
Release Date : 3 May 2016
Published by : Disney Hyperion 
Synopsis : How do you punish an immortal? By making him human.
After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour .But Apollo has many enemies – gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.
The Hidden Oracle is the first book in Rick Riordan’s new series following the god Apollo and I’m so excited!! I can’t wait to be back in the world again and see some familiar characters ( AKA PERCY JACKSON AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH )!! 🙂
I’m hoping to be able to get my hands on a signed copy of this book so we shall see if that’ll happen but do pick this up when it’s out and we can all fangirl over it together HEHE.

2) Queen Of Hearts ( Queen Of Hearts Saga #1 ) by Colleen Qake 
Release Date : 3 May 2016
Published by : HarperTeen
Synopsis : As Princess of Wonderland Palace and the future Queen of Hearts, Dinah’s days are an endless monotony of tea, tarts, and a stream of vicious humiliations at the hands of her father, the King of Hearts. The only highlight of her days is visiting Wardley, her childhood best friend, the future Knave of Hearts — and the love of her life.
When an enchanting stranger arrives at the Palace, Dinah watches as everything she’s ever wanted threatens to crumble. As her coronation date approaches, a series of suspicious and bloody events suggests that something sinister stirs in the whimsical halls of Wonderland. It’s up to Dinah to unravel the mysteries that lurk both inside and under the Palace before she loses her own head to a clever and faceless foe. Part epic fantasy, part twisted fairy tale, this dazzling saga will have readers shivering as Dinahs furious nature sweeps Wonderland up in the maelstrom of her wrath. Familiar characters such as Cheshire, the White Rabbit, and the Mad Hatter make their appearance, enchanting readers with this new, dark take on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
Queen Of Hearts is an Alice In Wonderland retelling, following the story of Dinah who is not yet the Queen Of Hearts, but the Princess of Wonderland Palace. From the synopsis, the book sounds like it’s going to be a fun and adventure-filled read and it has a stunning cover!! Definitely support the author by picking this book up when it’s out 😀

3) The Crown’s Game ( The Crown’s Game #1 ) by Evelyn Sky 
Release Date : 17 May 2016
Published by : Balzer + Bray 
Synopsis : Vika Andreyeva can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters—the only two in Russia—and with the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threatening, the Tsar needs a powerful enchanter by his side. And so he initiates the Crown’s Game, an ancient duel of magical skill—the greatest test an enchanter will ever know. The victor becomes the Imperial Enchanter and the Tsar’s most respected adviser. The defeated is sentenced to death.
Raised on tiny Ovchinin Island her whole life, Vika is eager for the chance to show off her talent in the grand capital of Saint Petersburg. But can she kill another enchanter—even when his magic calls to her like nothing else ever has?For Nikolai, an orphan, the Crown’s Game is the chance of a lifetime. But his deadly opponent is a force to be reckoned with—beautiful, whip smart, imaginative—and he can’t stop thinking about her. And when Pasha, Nikolai’s best friend and heir to the throne, also starts to fall for the mysterious enchantress, Nikolai must defeat the girl they both love… or be killed himself. As long-buried secrets emerge, threatening the future of the empire, it becomes dangerously clear… the Crown’s Game is not one to lose.
The Crown’s Game is a YA Fantasy read and it seems that it will be mixed with some magic and politics elements which I absolutely love 😀 This book has been getting a lot of hype even before it is released and I’m so excited for it!! The plot sounds incredible and the romance seems like a forbidden love type of thing so I’m definitely looking forward to reading this.

4) Return To The Isle Of The Lost ( Descendants #2 ) by Melissa De La Cruz
Release Date : 24 May 2016
Published by : Disney Hyperion
Synopsis : There’s no place like home. Especially if home is the infamous Isle of the Lost. Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay haven’t exactly turned their villainous noses up at the comforts of Auradon after spending their childhoods banished on the Isle. After all, meeting princes and starring on the Tourney team aren’t nearly as terrible as Mal and her friends once thought they would be.But when they receive a mysterious invitation to return to the Isle, Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay can’t help feeling comfortable in their old hood—and their old ways. Not everything is how they left it, though, and when they discover a dark mystery at the Ise’s core, they’ll have to combine all of their talents in order to save the kingdom.
Lastly, we have Return To The Isle Of The Lost. The first book, The Isle Of The Lost, follows the story of the children of well-known Disney villains and their adventures! I absolutely loved the first book as it was a really quick and fun read and I’m happy that we are getting a sequel! 🙂 Also, the final cover is STUNNING. ( Not the one in the picture above, couldn’t find a clear picture of the final cover :/ )
That is all for today’s post, I hope you guys enjoyed it and I’ll see you in my next post. Have a great week! ❤
