Another book event! Raincoast Books hosted us earlier this month to share some fun adult, YA, and MG titles releasing this year.
Normally I try to limit these wrap-ups to five books that really caught my attention but there are so many great titles coming out from Raincoast! So I’ve included a couple extra titles as “honourable mentions”.
Let me know which ones peak your interest!
Marikit and the Ocean of Stars by Caris Avendaño Cruz
Genre: MG Fantasy
Publication date: October 18, 2022
“Inspired by Filipino folklore, this middle grade debut follows Marikit who sets off into the magical land of the gods to escape the clutches of a sinister shadow god.” – publisher’s promo
I love the increase in Filipino stories I’ve seen recently and especially love getting to read more from folklore I’m not as familiar with. This sounds like a wonderful heartwarming story and the little snippet from the blurb promises some beautiful world-building too.
