Searching Saturday is a weekly meme created by Nikki at The Night is Dark and Full of Books. The aim is to search a book (or multiple books) that is new-to-you and fits the weekly theme. This could be a book to add to your TBR, or just to address on your blog. It’s up to you! You can search as many as you want, wherever you want.
This week, the search is on for books that have under 2,000 Goodreads ratings but are published at least 2 months ago. Here is my list…I hope you enjoy.
If you’ve read any of these books, or want to ready any, let me know in the comments!

Now that Lilywhite Abernathy is the heir to the Hidden Lands, everything is about to change.
The Queen of Blood and Rage wants Lily to help broker peace with the human world, but Lily knows that harmony won’t come easily.
