This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then some thing interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
For this week’s pick, I decided to look at books that maybe fit the whole spooky, it’s October and almost Halloween vibe that maybe I could even read right now. But a funny thing happened while I was ordering the list to look for books coming out in October. I found a book that I have to wait almost a whole year for! And it fit the whole spooky October theme. Perfect.
I am pretty sure this is just a working title and definitely not the final cover, but there is a summary for it.

Summary from Publisher:
From holy cup comes holy light
The faithful hands sets world aright.
And in the Seven Martyrs’ sight,
Mere man shall end this endless night.
It has been twenty-seven long years since the last sunrise. For nearly three decades, vampires have waged war against humanity; building their eternal empire even as they tear down our own. Now, only a few tiny sparks of light endure in a sea of darkness.
Gabriel de León is a silversaint: a member of a holy brotherhood dedicated to defending realm and church from the creatures of the night. But even the Silver Order couldn’t stem the tide once daylight failed us, and now, only Gabriel remains.
Imprisoned by the very monsters he vowed to destroy, the last silversaint is forced to tell his story. A story of legendary battles and forbidden love, of faith lost and friendships won, of the Wars of the Blood and the Forever King and the quest for humanity’s last remaining hope:
The Holy Grail.
Are you as excited as I am? It will be a long wait, but one that I am sure will be worth it!
