know is threatening to come to life. I find it almost impossible not to add books to the list. Someone mentions them in their TTT? On the list. Link in a tweet? Yup, I bought it. What can I say? I am weak. Also, completely okay with disposable income going towards books. #IAmAnAdultAndYouCanNotStopMe
Here are the books that I am going to adding to my pile as soon as I can buy them.
The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic
by Leigh Bardugo
"It was only then that she saw the black-clad boy crossing the room toward her. The shadows seemed to shift as he passed, pulled along by him like a tide."
Leigh Bardugo is an auto buy author for me. This is a collection of fairy tales from her Six of Crows world. I need it in my life.
by Nic Stone
"Yeah, there are no more ‘colored’ water fountains, and it’s supposed to be illegal to discriminate, but if I can be forced to sit on the concrete in too-tight cuffs when I’ve done nothing wrong, it’s clear there’s an issue. That things aren’t as equal as folks say they are."
I preordered this the first day that it was allowed and I am so desperate for it that I am a little embarrassed.
An Enchantment of Ravens
by Margaret Rogerson
"This wasn't like me. So many years of being cautious, and in a matter of minutes I'd started slipping up."
I am very attached to the word "Raven" in a title. No idea why. Fey fantasy isn't generally my thing but I am willing to make an exception.
by Anna-Marie McLemore
“Of course he would think the whole glittering universe existed to spin anything he wanted out of stardust. He was a man, and a rich one, and these together made him believe the planets and moons orbited around the single point of his desires.”
I loved The Weight of Feathers and When the Moon was Ours and am so excited about this one. I love her writing style.
by Marie Lu
“It is hard to describe loss to someone who has never experienced it, impossible to explain all the ways it changes you. But for those who have, not a single word is needed.”
This one is out already but I haven't gotten to it yet. Shocking I know. On the surface it doesn't seem as if it is something that I would be interested in but the hype has gotten to me. I am pretty excited.

“Prejudice begets prejudice, you see. Knowledge does not always evolve into wisdom.”
This book is already out but the sequel is coming out on October 3rd and I want to read it. That counts, right? #rulebreaker
