January 2017

Hello Fellow Bookworms!
       As you can see, having an "Announcements" post is something I haven't done before on the Royal Review but I wanted to give it a try. As a lot of you know, I have announced in December of 2016 that there was going to be changes in the new year, well... here is the first one! I have decided to make a monthly "Announcements" post in which I can keep my viewer up to date on:

1. New books that I (and the book community) am excited for
2. Giveaways, Quizzes and Question of the Month
3. Spotlight Book of the Month
4. ARC's received from publishers/authors
5. others

I will probably revise and edit my plan as time goes on but this is the basic idea. I am really excited for this new update and I hope you are too!
This is where I list the book releases that I am looking forward to in the next month.
Coming Soon In February:
Release date Febuary 7th:
     YA 1. King's Cage (Red Queen #3) by Victoria Aveyard
     YA 2. Trapped in Silver (Eldryn Chronicles #1) by Emily Sowden
Release date February 28th:
     YA 1. Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King #1) by Tricia Levenseller
     YA 2. Lifeblood (Everlife #2) by Gena Showalter

Q: Would you rather: 
A) live in the world of your favorite book OR 
B) have your favorite character(s) live in your world?
