4 Books Releasing Soon That You’ll Want to Put on Your Reading List

1. “Witches Steeped in Gold” by Ciannon Smart

Ciannon Smart’s Young Adult fantasy debut sounds like quite a ride! Witches Steeped in Gold is a Jamaican-inspired fantasy novel about two witches, Iraya and Jazmyne. Even though they’re sworn enemies, with Iraya being imprisoned and Jazmyne the Queen’s daughter, they decide to strike up an alliance. The Goodreads description for the book says that it’s “deadly, fierce, [and] magnetically addictive!” Could there be a more compelling description?
