A recently went to an author talk by this author, and the book kinda caught my attention. There is a lot of Handmaid’s Tale vibes to this story, in which girls are told that they have power “to lure grown men from their beds”, and when they are 16, the girls are banished to the woods to release their magic and return “purified”. I am really enjoying it so far.

This is a unique take on the Buffyverse, sort of from the perspective of the Watchers Academy. I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a great first book, and I really enjoyed Nina as a new character in the Buffyverse.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I am a fan of the Witcher video games, and also very excited about the series on Netflix, so I finally decided to start reading books, that the game is based on. I have played so many hours of the Witcher 3 and I haven’t finished yet, mainly because I get lost in side quests.

In my quest to read the Grisha books, other than the Six of Crows duology, I have decided to finally read the Shadow and Bone trilogy. I recently re-read Shadow and Bone, and have decided to finish the Netflix series, thanks to the upcoming Netflix series.

A Les-Mis retelling set in space, of course I will want to read it, and I am enjoying it so far. It was some great world building and the characters are amazing.

Saga Vol. 6

Earlier this year I started reading graphic novels, and I started reading Saga again and I am loving it. The story just keeps taking a lot of twists and turns, and I am just along for the ride.

What did you recently finish?

Image result for princess and the fangirl

Ashley Poston has done it again. She made a fairy tale retelling set in a Sci Fi convention and made it awesome. I love who she expanded the world of Geekerella.

Another great Asian inspired fantasy. While the beginning of the book, starts off slow, it really picks up and I couldn’t put it down. So much suspense I just had to keep reading.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I loved Want, and Cindy Pon, is starting to become one of my favorite authors. I felt the wait was very long in-between books and I want to know how this ends.

Late last year I finally decided to enter the Shadowhunter world and started reading The Mortal Instruments, the first three books anyway, and I really enjoyed them so far and finally seeing what the hype is about.

I am currently loving it so far, and I see why people love Jem so much, and it also gives us another glimpse in the Shadowhunter world.

What did you recently finish reading?

Image result for the girls of paper and fire

I really loved this book. The world is amazing, and I love the romance between the characters.  A very well written Asian inspired fantasy dealing with concubines to the Demon King.

Image result for paper girls vol 1

After reading the first volume of Papergirls, I can honestly say that I am a fan of Brian K. Vaughn. I would sort of describe it as a sort of girl version of Stranger Things, while also maybe dealing with time travel. I really want to keep reading this series.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Image result for grim lovelies

I bought this book during my Amazon gift card haul because I was very intrigued by the premise, especially since I am a fan of twisted fairy tales.

I heard so many good things about this book, and it has been on my TBR for a while. I am really enjoying it so far. This book is very hard science fiction, in a good way. It is about the first contact with aliens and everything else that follows.

I finally broke down (again) and starting to read Cassandra Clare. I read the first book before many years ago, and I decided to give her another shot. I really enjoyed reading, and it had some good world building so far. I will now plan on the reading the rest of the Shadowhunter books to prepare for Queen of Air and Darkness coming out in December

Image result for give the dark my love

This was a book, that I saw at the library and picked it up right away, and I really enjoyed. I read Beth Revis other work Across the Universe a couple years back. This deals with necromancy and a plague that is happening in Nedra’s town. Very enjoyable, will have the review up by Friday.

Image result for spinning silver

I heard so many great things about this book, and the author herself. The premise already intrigued me, a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin.

Image result for shadow of the fox

This is a Japanese inspired fantasy novel, that Melanie@Meltotheany won’t stop shutting up about. (If you are reading this Melanie, than I am sorry, lol). I was also glad I saw this also at the library, and grabbed it immediately. I never read anything by Julie Kagawa, even though The Iron King, was on my TBR for a long time now.

Image result for access restricted

Last year I read, All Rights Reserved and I really enjoyed reading it. It was about a world in which every word is copyrighted, so speaking will cost you. A young girl named Speth, decided not to speak and sparked a revolution. So far the sequel expands heavily on its world and its premise and I am enjoying it.

Image result for y the last man

This is a graphic novel that I always wanted to read. I am a fan of Brian K. Vaughan’s writing mainly Saga, and this is a post apocalyptic world in which all men are dead and there is only one.

After years of putting it off, I finally tasted the Mark Lawrence Kool-Aid, and loved it. I really enjoyed reading this book. It had everything I need in a dark high fantasy, with murder and stabby, stab. Sort of like if nuns were also killer assassins. I can’t to see where this story ends up. Thank you Meltotheany

This is the second book I read by Holly Black. While I did enjoy the book, I did feel that the characters didn’t stick with me like they did in The Cruel Prince.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Image result for what if it's us

The YA crossover event of the century. Ever since this book was announced, it was on my TBR. I recently saw them at Boston Book Festival, and they are awesome people. Now I just want to know if it’s a Silvera ending or an Albertali ending.

Image result for anger is a gift

This is another YA contemporary dealing with police brutality, but also issues involving mental health. I also meet the author at Boston Book Festival, and hearing him talk about the book, made me want to go and pick it up.

Strange the Dreamer. Now I am hyped for Muse of Nightmares. It was so good. I loved the writing, this was the first book of Laini Taylor and I want to read more.

Furyborn, I really enjoyed. I liked the style in which its a book told through two time periods and each being such a lustful worlds in them.

I bought this back in April when I decided to use my Amazon gift card my girlfriend gave me. I am really enjoying the book so far, especially the under the sea kingdom with its setting.

I really enjoyed this book. It talked about a huge issue such as sexual assault and the rape culture surrounding it especially with the setting of a prestigious prep school.

I was reading this for my book club and all I could say is wow. It was an extremely powerful book detailing a special power that only women has and how they use their new found powers.

Yeah, you know this was coming. I loved the previous two books very much and the fact that I had to wait almost two years for this one was intense. I can’t wait to see what is in stores for the characters.
