This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads 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 something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
Usually when I use a random number generator I cheat a little bit. I confess that sometimes I don’t feel like the book that comes with the number is the right one, for whatever reason. But this time I was super excited when I saw which book went with the number 86, and I can’t wait to tell you all about!
Aurora’s End by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publication Date: November 9, 2021
The squad you love is out of time. Prepare for the thrilling finale in the epic, best-selling Aurora Cycle series about a band of unlikely heroes who just might be the galaxy’s last hope for survival.
Is this the end?
What happens when you ask a bunch of losers, discipline cases, and misfits to save the galaxy from an ancient evil? The ancient evil wins, of course.
Wait. . . . Not. So. Fast.
When we last saw Squad 312, they were working together seamlessly (aka, freaking out) as an intergalactic battle raged and an ancient super weapon threatened to obliterate Earth. Everything went horribly wrong, naturally.
But as it turns out, not all endings are endings, and the team has one last chance to rewrite theirs. Maybe two. It’s complicated.
Cue Zila, Fin, and Scarlett (and MAGELLAN!): making friends, making enemies, and making history? Sure, no problem
Cue Tyler, Kal, and Auri: uniting with two of the galaxy’s most hated villains? Um, okay. That, too.
Actually saving the galaxy, though?
Now that will take a miracle.
I have to say that there are a lot of really good books coming out this fall, but this one will probably be my most anticipated read of the season. Of course I will have to reread the other two books, mostly because I can’t quite remember book 2 super well and want to make sure that everything is fresh in my mind before this one. I love that cover as well! Super creepy, but fits so well with the other two!
Are you as excited as I am about this book coming out in November? Do you wish it would be sooner? Me Too!
