  3. Ohhh Forest of Souls sounds incredible! I love strong female protagonists and hooray for seeing diverse characters at the forefront of epic fantasy novels! I've been loving all the young adult fantasy being released lately, as much as I love Sarah J Maas, we need more representation within our characters and some of these debut authors are phenomenal!

    1. It really does! I've also noticed an increase in dark magic being an element to these new fantasy releases, which I think has expanded the genre even more! At least in the YA world, and 100% agree with you in loving the introduction of more representation within characters. Reading experiences now is so much more different than what it was like when I was younger!
