I had planned to write a rec post or a review today, but I gave up both those ideas. I wasn’t fully invested in them so I’ve paused them for now and thoughg of sharing my recent additions to my TBR. I’m either looking for more Dark Fantasy or fall books and can’t stop expanding my TBR. I’m really excited to write fall posts because I have some ideas in my mind. But I’ll be writing a few Halloween posts and continue the interviews once I’m done with my blog tour on Monday.
• Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles
I haven’t read many books on magical competitions. It was thrilling to see magicians showing off their powers and battling their rivals in A Gathering of Shadows and The Night Circus, so I’d like to read more novels like that. If the Conquering Circus has any tricks and illusions as The Night Circus did, then I think I might enjoy this book.
In a city covered in ice and ruin, a group of magicians face off in a daring game of magical feats to find the next headliner of the Conquering Circus, only to find themselves under the threat of an unseen danger striking behind the scenes.
As each act becomes more and more risky and the number of missing magicians piles up, three are forced to reckon with their secrets before the darkness comes for them next.
The Star: Kallia, a powerful showgirl out to prove she’s the best no matter the cost
The Master: Jack, the enigmatic keeper of the club, and more than one lie told
The Magician: Demarco, the brooding judge with a dark past he can no longer hide
Where Dreams Descend is the startling and romantic first book in Janella Angeles’ debut Kingdom of Cards fantasy duology where magic is both celebrated and feared, and no heart is left unscathed.

• A Lesson in Vengeance by Victoria Lee
I’ve been drawn towards Dark Academia books lately, thanks to bookstagram and Goodreads. I feel like this would be perfect for my Halloween TBR if I had one.
Felicity Morrow is back at Dalloway School.
Perched in the Catskill mountains, the centuries-old, ivy-covered campus was home until the tragic death of her girlfriend. Now, after a year away, she’s returned to graduate. She even has her old room in Godwin House, the exclusive dormitory rumored to be haunted by the spirits of five Dalloway students—girls some say were witches. The Dalloway Five all died mysteriously, one after another, right on Godwin grounds.
Witchcraft is woven into Dalloway’s history. The school doesn’t talk about it, but the students do. In secret rooms and shadowy corners, girls convene. And before her girlfriend died, Felicity was drawn to the dark. She’s determined to leave that behind her now; all Felicity wants is to focus on her senior thesis and graduate. But it’s hard when Dalloway’s occult history is everywhere. And when the new girl won’t let her forget.
It’s Ellis Haley’s first year at Dalloway, and she’s already amassed a loyal following. A prodigy novelist at seventeen, Ellis is a so-called “method writer.” She’s eccentric and brilliant, and Felicity can’t shake the pull she feels to her. So when Ellis asks Felicity for help researching the Dalloway Five for her second book, Felicity can’t say no. Given her history with the arcane, Felicity is the perfect resource.
And when history begins to repeat itself, Felicity will have to face the darkness in Dalloway–and in herself.

• That Dark Infinity by Kate Pentecost
I found this on TBR and Beyond Tours. I wished to be a part of the blog tour for this book, but I couldn’t make it. But I’m excited to read another story filled with a witch’s curse and facing immortality.
By night, the Ankou is a legendary, permanently young mercenary. By day, a witch’s curse leaves him no more than bones. Caught in an unending cycle of death and resurrection, the Ankou wants only to find the death that has been prophesied for him, especially once he begins to rot while he’s still alive….
After the kingdom of Kaer-Ise is sacked, Flora, loyal handmaiden to the princess, is assaulted and left for dead. As the sole survivor of the massacre, Flora wants desperately to find the princess she served. When the Ankou agrees to help her find the princess, and to train her in exchange for her help in breaking his curse, she accepts. But how can she kill an immortal? Especially one whom she is slowly growing to understand—and maybe even to love?
Together, they will solve mysteries, battle monsters, break curses, and race not only against time, but against fate itself.

P.S. I’ll be posting on random days this month. Since I’ve allotted Monday and Fridays for BBN, I might post on Tuesday or Thursdays.
It’s been a long week, but I’m looking forward to finishing The Keeper of Night. Let me know your plans for the weekend in the comments.
