Serie27064385s: Ivory and Bone #1
Genre: YA, fantasy, romance, historical, retelling
Release date: June 7th 2016
Publisher: Harper Teen
Length: 384 pages

A prehistoric fantasy—with allusions to Pride and Prejudice.

Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family safe—that’s the life seventeen-year-old Kol knows. Then bold, enigmatic Mya arrives from the south with her family, and Kol is captivated. He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless—and nearly grave—mistake. However, there’s something more to Mya’s cool disdain…a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior motives.

As Kol gets to know Lo, tensions between Mya and Lo escalate until violence erupts. Faced with shattering losses, Kol is forced to question every person he’s trusted. One thing is for sure: this was a war that Mya or Lo—Kol doesn’t know which—had been planning all along.

Little note: Oh romanceeeeee 😀 I’m still not 100% sure if I’ll ever read it, but it looks good! 😀 I think I’m gonna wait until Yvonne has read the book haha 😀


My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows

22840421Series: standalone
Genre: YA, fantasy, retelling, historical
Release date: June 7th 2016
Publisher: HarperTeen
Length: 512 pages

The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.

At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren’t for Jane to worry about. Jane gets to be Queen of England.

Little note: The blurb of this book tells you nothing basically 😀 But I love the little mysterious aspect! WHAT WILL HAPPEN?? 😀 This book is huge though!
