THE WAY TO GAME THE WALK OF SHAME BY JENN P. NGUYEN
Genre: YA Contemporary/Romance
This book was so cute and adorable. I’m nearly finished with it and so far it was great.
Things were hard enough when her single-minded dedication to her studies earned her the reputation of being an Ice Queen, but after getting drunk at a party and waking up next to bad boy surfer Evan McKinley, the entire school seems intent on tearing Taylor down with mockery and gossip.
Desperate to salvage her reputation, Taylor persuades Evan to pretend they’re in a serious romantic relationship. After all, it’s better to be the girl who tames the wild surfer than just another notch on his surfboard.
I JUST RECENTLY FINISHED READING:
RISE(THE ORDER OF THE KRIGERS#1) BY JENNIFER ANN DAVIS
Genre: YA Fantasy
My Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
A nice start for a new fantasy series. Although it wasn’t great as expected but still it was a good read and I liked it.
BLURB: The people of Nelebek live in fear of persecution from the evil Morlet, who reigns with a dark and destructive magic. The kingdom’s only hope lies with the Order of the Krigers—twelve warriors with mysterious powers linked to magical weapons.
For over a century, Morlet has been annihilating the Order, picking them off one by one. Eleven Krigers have been hunted down, tortured, and imprisoned in his dungeon. Now, only one remains.
Sixteen-year-old Kaia survives by keeping her head down and minding her own business. But when she finds herself in the middle of a public execution where the mysterious Morlet is in attendance, an odd compulsion she can’t resist comes over her.
Kaia looks into Morlet’s eyes.
Soon, an ancient power awakens and Kaia can no more blend into the scenery. Will she heed the call of the Krigers or will Morlet’s dark magic destroy the last of the Order?
A COURT OF MIST AND FURY(A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES#2) BY SARAH J. MASS
Genre: NA Fantasy/Romance
My Rating: 4/5 Stars
This book was a roller coaster of emotions definitely one of my favorite reads of this year.
BLURB: Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.
A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES(A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES) BY SARAH J. MASS
Genre: NA Fantasy/Romance
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
I can’t say how much I love this series and I loved re-reading this where it all began.
She thinks nothing of slaughtering a wolf to capture its prey. But, like all mortals, she fears what lingers mercilessly beyond the forest. And she will learn that taking the life of a magical creature comes at a high price…
Imprisoned in an enchanted court in her enemy’s kingdom, Feyre is free to roam but forbidden to escape. Her captor’s body bears the scars of fighting, and his face is always masked – but his piercing stare draws her ever closer. As Feyre’s feeling for Tamlin begin to burn through every warning she’s been told about his kind, an ancient, wicked shadow grows.
Feyre must find a way to break a spell, or lose her heart forever.
NEXT I’M GOING TO READ THESE BOOKS:
LOTUS AND THORN BY SARA WILSON EITIENNE
Genre: Young-Adult/Sci-fi Fantasy
BLURB: Ravaged by a plague known as Red Death, the planet Gabriel, a former colony of Earth, is a barren wasteland. Since being abandoned by Earth 500 years ago, resources are scarce and life is cheap. To stay alive, the survivors, the Citizens, scavenge the remains of a now dead city, trading for food with the resource-rich Curadores, the only other survivors on Gabriel. Every old computer, every piece of wire, every scrap of metal counts. To steal is the ultimate sin. So when tough-as-nails seventeen-year-old Leica is caught doing just that, she’s exiled and left to the mercy of Gabriel’s unforgiving desert for the rest of her life.
While in exile, Leica discovers a mysterious shuttle, which may not only lead her home, but even more impossible—reestablish contact with Earth. Then Red Death rears its head again, killing her entire work crew, leaving Leica all alone until a handsome Curador offers her refuge in the Dome—the only place on Gabriel untouched by Red Death, where a decadent and sultry life awaits. But there’s a catch: Leica can only enter the Dome as his concubine—his Kisaeng. When a rogue group of Citizens see their chance for revolution in Leica’s good fortune, she finds herself unraveling a deadly mystery with chilling answers to the true origin of Red Death and the reason Earth really abandoned them so long ago.
IDOL(VIP#1) BY KRISTEN CALLIHAN
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.
He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?
As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.
Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse—and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.
The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.
THE BUREAU(THE CAGE FOR MAN AND WOLVES#1) BY MICHELLE KAY
Genre: Young Adult/Sci-Fi/Fantasy
BLURB: Only slaves and corpses come out of the Bureau.
Seventeen-year-old Clover Rhodes has been told this her whole life, but when her family is taken by the Bureau, she’s forced to make a decision: follow the rules and stay hidden with her pack of werewolves, or turn away from their safety in a wild bid to rescue her parents and two younger siblings.
Elliot Montgomery, nineteen-year-old son of the Bureau Director, is next in line to lead the agency in its campaign to bring the werewolf population under strict control—and he’s the only thing standing between that control and his cutthroat brother’s plans for a werewolf genocide.
That is, until Clover Rhodes happens.
Determined to get her family back, Clover attacks Elliot in his own home and holds him hostage while posing as his slave. Using her new cover, she sneaks her way into the Bureau in search of her captured family. What she finds instead is a front row seat to the twisted exhibition of mistreatment her people suffer at the hands of the Bureau. And what she faces inside herself is the possibility that Elliot–her prisoner–is not as corrupt as she wanted him to be.
