Bookish Fun!

May TBR

Hey Guys! I am actually quite proud of myself because I finished reading 3 books last month which were: The Wheel Mages by Aimee Davis, The Ghost Of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick and Chewy Noh and The Fall Of The Mu-Dang by Tim Learn. I will be linking the reviews down below:

So, without further ado, let’s get into my May TBR!

1. King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

ed9afc6662270ec77c67fbdfa710611a

(BEAUTIFUL COVER!)

*Do not read King’s Cage synopsis if you have not read Red Queen!*

Synopsis:

In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.

When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.


I will be reading this book with my friend over at @thegeekybookgirl. Feel free to join us if you want to and you guys should totally check out her Instagram page! Her pictures are marvelous!


2. Select by Marit Wiesenberg

33830806

Synopsis:

Coming from a race of highly-evolved humans, Julia Jaynes has the perfect life. The perfect family. The perfect destiny. But there’s something rotten beneath the surface—dangerous secrets her father is keeping; abilities she was never meant to have; and an elite society of people determined to keep their talents hidden and who care nothing for the rest of humanity. So when Julia accidentally disrupts the Jaynes’ delicate anonymity, she’s banished to the one place meant to make her feel inferior: public high school.

Julia’s goal is to lay low and blend in. Then she meets him—John Ford, tennis prodigy, all-around good guy. When Julia discovers a knack for reading his mind, and also manipulating his life, school suddenly becomes a temporary escape from the cold grip of her manipulative father. But as Julia’s powers over John grow, so do her feelings. For the first time in her life, Julia begins to develop a sense of self, to question her restrictive upbringing and her family prejudices. She must decide: can a perfect love be worth more than a perfect life?


Actually, I am currently this book and I am very confused with the characters and the world. But anyways, I will finish up this book soon.  


3. Strange the dreamer by Laini Taylor

(GORGEOUS COVER!)

Synopsis:

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

Welcome to Weep.


I HAVE HIGH HOPES FOR THIS BOOK! I love the ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ trilogy by Laini Taylor and therefore, I have high hopes!

Hey People! I read only one book last month which was ‘Heartless’ by Marrisa Meyer. I will be linking my ‘Heartless’ review down below:

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

So, without further ado, let’s get into my Apirl TBR list!

1. Select by Marit Wiesenberg

But there’s something rotten beneath the surface—dangerous secrets her father is keeping; abilities she was never meant to have; and an elite society of people determined to keep their talents hidden and who care nothing for the rest of humanity.

I received this book on Netgalley and this is my most anticipated book of the month! I can’t wait to read it!

2. The Ghosts Of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick

15876393_277354262679101_6300987563221975040_n

A bold, genre-bending epic that chronicles madness, obsession, and creation, from the Paleolithic era through the Witch Hunts and into the space-bound future.

Four linked stories boldly chronicle madness, obsession, and creation through the ages. Beginning with the cave-drawings of a young girl on the brink of creating the earliest form of writing, Sedgwick traverses history, plunging into the seventeenth century witch hunts and a 1920s insane asylum where a mad poet’s obsession with spirals seems to be about to unhinge the world of the doctor trying to save him. Sedgwick moves beyond the boundaries of historical fiction and into the future in the book’s final section, set upon a spaceship voyaging to settle another world for the first time.

This book sounds super intriguing and four-linked stories? COUNT ME IN! (By the way, the cover is gorgeous)

3. Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children (MPPC #1) by Ransom Riggs

15258960_220941985000323_7171953926659375104_n

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.

A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

—————

I watched the film for ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’ and it was fantastic! I can’t wait to jump into the book and I was told that there’re creepy pictures in it, which makes me want to read it even more!

This is the end of my April TBR and I am determined to reach my goal this month! I hope you all enjoyed this and I will see you all next time when I post a new article! Bye!

2017 To-Be-Read Piles

March TBR (2017)

Hey Guys! Bad news: I failed my February TBR goal. I read only 2 books last month which were ‘Extracted’ and ‘Carve The Mark’. I will be linking both of the reviews down below: 

Extracted By R.R Haywood Carve The Mark By Veronica Roth

So, without further ado, let’s get into my March TBR list!

1. Ensnared by Rita Stradling 

Alainn’s father is not a bad man. He’s a genius and an inventor. When he’s hired to create the robot Rose, Alainn knows taking the money is a mistake.

Rose acts like a human. She looks exactly like Alainn. But, something in her comes out wrong.

To save her father from a five year prison sentence, Alainn takes Rose’s place. She says goodbye to the sun and goes to live in a tower no human is allowed to enter. She becomes the prisoner of a man no human is allowed to see.

Believing that a life of servitude lies ahead, Alainn finds a very different fate awaits her in the company of the strange, scarred recluse.

3. The Fire Sermon By Francesca Haig

Four hundred years in the future, the Earth has turned primitive following a nuclear fire that laid waste to civilization and nature. Though the radiation fallout has ended, for some unknowable reason every person is born with a twin. Of each pair one is an Alpha – physically perfect in every way – and the other an Omega burdened with deformity, small or large.

With the Council ruling an apartheid-like society, Omegas are branded and ostracized while the Alphas have gathered the world’s sparse resources for themselves. Though proclaiming their superiority, for all their effort Alphas cannot escape one harsh fact: Whenever one twin dies, so does the other. Cass is a rare Omega, one burdened with psychic foresight. While her twin, Zach, gains power on the Alpha Council, she dares to dream the most dangerous dream of all: equality. For daring to envision a world in which Alphas and Omegas live side by side as equals, both the Council and the Resistance have her in their sights.
