Roses of May (The Collector #2) by Dot Hutchison
Four months after the explosion at the Garden, a place where young women known as the Butterflies were kept captive, FBI agents Brandon Eddison, Victor Hanoverian, and Mercedes Ramirez are still entrenched in the aftermath, helping survivors in the process of adjusting to life on the outside. With winter coming to an end, the Butterflies have longer, warmer days of healing ahead. But for the agents, the impending thaw means one gruesome thing: a chilling guarantee that somewhere in the country, another young woman will turn up dead in a church with her throat slit and her body surrounded by flowers.
Priya Sravasti’s sister fell victim to the killer years ago. Now she and her mother move every few months, hoping for a new beginning. But when she ends up in the madman’s crosshairs, the hunt takes on new urgency. Only with Priya’s help can the killer be found—but will her desperate hope for closure compel her to put her very life on the line?
This is the second book in what I think is a duology, so it would be the last one, but I heard that there will be a third one so I’m not sure how to call it, anyway, as I said it’s the second book in The Collector duology/trilogy, I read the first one some time ago now, is called The Butterfly Garden and has been on my list of favorites since then, is an incredible book of murder and mystery, is a trhiller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, is raw and real and for me it’s just amazing, so I’m super excited to see what kind of plot twist will take the story in this book, I don’t know if it’s about other characters, I think so, so I just have to go for it and I’ll see
Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes #2) by Sara Raasch
(The synopsis may contain spoiler from the previous book)
It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell.
Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves?
Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats?
As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world.
Love the first book , I really have been surprised by how much I committed to this story, so obviously I want to continue with the trilogy, I really want to get into this beautiful world again and see how it will continue, from now on, the life of each character , I read the synopsis and I’m more than excited, I can’t wait!

Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index by Julie Israel
It’s been sixty-five days since the accident that killed Juniper’s sister, and ripped Juniper’s world apart.
Then she finds the love letter: written by Camilla on the day of the accident, addressed mysteriously to “You,” but never sent. Desperate to learn You’s identity and deliver the message, Juniper starts to investigate.
Until she loses something. A card from her Happiness Index: a ritual started by sunny Camie for logging positives each day. It’s what’s been holding Juniper together since her death – but a lost card only widens the hole she left behind. And this particular card contains Juniper’s own dark secret: a memory she can’t let anyone else find out.
The search for You and her card take Juniper to even less expected places, and as she connects with those whose secrets she upturns in the effort, she may just find the means to make peace with her own.
This is a smart, funny, poignant book guaranteed to make you laugh and cry – and maybe even take notes.
OMG SO EXCITED! I’m always so grateful with Netgalley for providing me with this copy to review, I’m very excited, and I say that with each book so it’s getting repetitive, but it’s real. I feel that this book will be so fun and original, I don’t know much about it, but I’ve heard great things so I can’t wait to go for it, plus: that cover is beautiful!
The Book of Whispers by Kimberley Starr
Tuscany, 1096 AD. Luca, young heir to the title of Conte de Falconi, sees demons. Since no one else can see them, Luca must keep quiet about what he sees.
Luca also has dreams—dreams that sometimes predict the future. Luca sees his father murdered in one such dream and vows to stop it coming true. Even if he has to go against his father’s wishes and follow him on the great pilgrimage to capture the Holy Lands.
When Luca is given an ancient book that holds some inscrutable power, he knows he’s been thrown into an adventure that will lead to places beyond his understanding. But with the help of Suzan, the beautiful girl he rescues from the desert, he will realise his true quest: to defeat the forces of man and demon that wish to destroy the world.
This is another approved via Netgalley, which sounds incredible, I have to confess that the cover ended by convincing me, it’s beautiful, I hope to be able to fulfill with all my readings because I have realized that there are many of them, yet I’m equally excited about all, so I’ll do my best to do it. So if there isn’t much to say I just hope to enjoy it because it looks so good
and a couple more…
I Have No Secrets by Penny Joelson

She has a sharp brain and inquisitive nature, and knows all sorts of things about everyone. But when she is confronted with this terrible secret, she is utterly powerless to do anything. Though that might be about to change…
A page-turning thriller seen through the eyes of a unique narrator, this is a truly original, heart-rending and compulsive book for young adult readers. Perfect for fans of Wonder, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time and Looking for JJ.
