Hi guys,

I know, I know it’s been about four months since I’ve posted.  I have a few reviews and I can post soon and a few other blog posts I’ve been planning on too.  I’m hoping I can and will just start putting the posts together on my computer and just do scheduled posts again.  I think scheduled post is what helped so much before.  I’ve been more into instagram lately.  I will make a updated what I have read recently, and a big book haul of book I’ve bought.  Which I will mostly just make a list and add in some of my photos from instagram into the post. I’m starting to pick up writing again, which I am really excited about.  I also might start making other posts too, I might make posts where I do makeup look inspired by book covers, style posts, or even posts about things I do or trips I go on.

Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that’s now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth’s robotic “mech” armies for decades with no end in sight.

After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel’s programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis–even though her plan to win the war will kill him.

Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel’s devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.

Given to the Sea on Goodreads

Khosa is Given to the Sea, a girl born to be fed to the water, her flesh preventing a wave like the one that destroyed the Kingdom of Stille in days of old. But before she’s allowed to dance – an uncontrollable twitching of the limbs that will carry her to the shore in a frenzy – she must produce an heir. Yet the thought of human touch sends shudders down her spine that not even the sound of the tide can match.

Vincent is third in line to inherit his throne, royalty in a kingdom where the old linger and the young inherit only boredom. When Khosa arrives without an heir he knows his father will ensure she fulfills her duty, at whatever cost. Torn between protecting the throne he will someday fill, and the girl whose fate is tied to its very existence, Vincent’s loyalty is at odds with his heart.

Dara and Donil are the last of the Indiri, a native race whose dwindling magic grows weaker as the island country fades. Animals cease to bear young, creatures of the sea take to the land, and the Pietra – fierce fighters who destroyed the Indiri a generation before – are now marching from their stony shores for the twin’s adopted homeland, Stille.

Witt leads the Pietra, their army the only family he has ever known. The stone shores harbor a secret, a growing threat that will envelop the entire land – and he will conquer every speck of soil to ensure the survival of his people.

The tides are turning in Stille, where royals scheme, Pietrans march, and the rising sea calls for its Given.

Spindle Fire on Goodreads

Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king’s headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.

And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora’s blood–and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.

As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen.

Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls; and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape . . . or the reason for her to stay.

Spindle Fire is the first book in a duology.

Alex & Eliza on Goodreads

1777. Albany, New York.

As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters—Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival that of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball.

Still, she can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can’t believe his luck—as an orphan, and a bastard one at that—to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.

The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

One Life to One Dawn.

In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad’s dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph’s reign of terror once and for all.

Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles Khalid, weaving stories that enchant, ensuring her survival, though she knows each dawn could be her last. But something she never expected begins to happen: Khalid is nothing like what she’d imagined him to be. This monster is a boy with a tormented heart. Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It’s an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid’s life as retribution for the many lives he’s stolen. Can their love survive this world of stories and secrets?

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh was either the first or second retelling that I read. The Wrath and the Dawn is a retelling of A Thousand and One Nights.  I just loved this book so much, I haven’t got around to getting the sequel The Rose and the Dagger yet but I still really want to get it.  I just found this book to be absolutely perfect and wonderful.  If you haven’t read it I totally recommend you go out and buy it and read it right away.

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.

But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

This is the other retelling I have read it was either before or after The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh.  The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine is a retelling of Snow White if you couldn’t tell by the cover. I really loved this as well it was so action packed and amazing.  If you like fairy tale retelling I would read this if I were you.  When I bought this I picked it up randomly, I hadn’t heard anything about it I liked the title and how the contrast of the black apple and white background.  It may have been a title and cover by but the book was perfect.

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters – never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family’s past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he’s willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City – whatever the cost?

I was in a reading slump before I read this because I wanted to read this book so bad.  I tried reading a different book between book two and book three but that wasn’t going to happen.  I remember just reading this book so much and I wanted to continue reading the series.  I didn’t own the rest of Cassie’s books when I finished this book, I still don’t own all of them yet but I’m working on getting the rest of them.  I remember just loving this book and not wanting to put it down it took me about 24-36 hours to read it with sleeping.

Illuminae by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it’s clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

I took me a little while to actually read this after I got it I heard people talk about it and it intimidated me because of the length, format, and because it’s a science fiction novel.  This was my first science fiction novel I have ever read.   Illuminae by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff is told by hacked documents like: IM’s, email, files and many more.  I found this so interesting, I cared for the characters Ezra and Kady and was hoping the best for them the whole time when I thought he died it completely broke me.  I had to pause reading at parts I was excited but scared at the same time to continue reading.  This book made me feel so many times the whole time I was reading, it took me a bit took get used to this book being told by files. I still haven’t read the sequel Gemina even though I was excited for it.  I read Illuminae twice in 2016.  You can check out my review, here.

The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden

Seven girls tied by time.
Five powers that bind.
One curse to lock the horror away.
One attic to keep the monsters at bay.

After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne wants nothing more than her now silent city to return to normal. But with home resembling a war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal needs a new definition.

As the city murder rate soars, Adele finds herself tangled in a web of magic that weaves back to her own ancestors. Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, who can she trust when everyone has a secret and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless . . . you’re immortal.

I got this book for my birthday my mom let me pick out some books I wanted and bought them.  I heard about The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden from Casey on Instagram.  We have both witches and vampires in this book.  Which I was excited about, my first book that had witches but I read the Twilight saga but those are the only vampire books I’ve read.  I plan to read more witch and vampire books. This book made me nervous and excited to read about what was going to happen next.  I am so glad I did, this was my number one favorite book I read this year.  It was just so interesting and perfect.  I can’t wait for the sequel The Romeo Catchers which is out on 23rd of May 2017.  You can read my review, here.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

I bought A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas over the summer from Target.  I didn’t read it till the middle/end of October. If you don’t already know ACOTAR is a retelling of Beauty in the Beast.  I loved this books it was amazing, this is runner up for my favorite read for 2016.  I loved that there were Fae’s in this book made it really interesting.  I haven’t got the sequel A Court of Mist and Fury yet but I really want to it’s on my list to get soon but I probably won’t till close to when the third book A Court of Wings and Ruin is out.  I knew before I read this that I was going to love this book, after I finished this book it put me in about a week long reading slump.  You can read my review, here.

I really enjoyed this A Court of Thorns and roses,  I wish I would have read it sooner then I did. I can’t wait to get A Court of Mist and Fury here soon and preorder A Court of Wings and Ruin which the title was released earlier this week. I loved every moment of it, I was excited, nervous, happy, and scared while reading.  I love Tamlin and Feyre, I’ve heard that when people read A Court of Mist and Fury everyone loved Rhysand.  Which I wonder if the same thing will happen to me when I finally get around to reading it.  Acotar left me on the edge of my seat a lot while reading.  I absolutely love it hen a book does that for me.  I actually prefer it, it makes me unable to put the book down.  I was surprised when Freyra died but they saved her by bringing her back has as a fairy, I didn’t see that coming at all.

As thousands of desperate refugees flock to the coast in the midst of a Soviet advance, four paths converge, vying for passage aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety and freedom.

Yet not all promises can be kept.

Inspired by the single greatest tragedy in maritime history, bestselling and award-winning author Ruta Sepetys (Between Shades of Gray) lifts the veil on a shockingly little-known casualty of World War II. An illuminating and life-affirming tale of heart and hope.
