FANTASY / SCI-FI

That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston

Published by Dutton Books for Young Readers

October 3rd 2017

That Inevitable Victorian ThingSet in a near-future world where the British Empire never fell and the United States never rose, That Inevitable Victorian Thing is a surprising, delightful, and thought-provoking novel of love, duty, and the small moments that can change people and the world.

Victoria-Margaret is the crown princess of the empire, a direct descendent of Victoria I, the queen who changed the course of history two centuries earlier. The imperial practice of genetically arranged matchmaking will soon guide Margaret into a politically advantageous marriage like her mother before her, but before she does her duty, she’ll have one summer incognito in a far corner of empire. In Toronto, she meets Helena Marcus, daughter of one of the empire’s greatest placement geneticists, and August Callaghan, the heir apparent to a powerful shipping firm currently besieged by American pirates. In a summer of high-society debutante balls, politically charged tea parties, and romantic country dances, Margaret, Helena, and August discover they share an unusual bond and maybe a one in a million chance to have what they want and to change the world in the process —just like the first Queen Victoria.

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff (The Nevernight Chronicles #2)

Published by Thomas Dunne Books

September 5th 2017

GodsgraveAssassin Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church ministry think she’s far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, she’s no closer to ending Consul Scaeva and Cardinal Duomo, or avenging her familia. And after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia begins to suspect the motives of the Red Church itself.

When it’s announced that Scaeva and Duomo will be making a rare public appearance at the conclusion of the grand games in Godsgrave, Mia defies the Church and sells herself to a gladiatorial collegium for a chance to finally end them. Upon the sands of the arena, Mia finds new allies, bitter rivals, and more questions about her strange affinity for the shadows. But as conspiracies unfold within the collegium walls, and the body count rises, Mia will be forced to choose between loyalty and revenge, and uncover a secret that could change the very face of her world.

The Castaways by Jessika Fleck

Published by Entangled TEEN

April 3rd 2017

The CastawaysThe Castaway Carnival: fun, mysterious, dangerous.

Renowned for its infamous corn maze…and the kids who go missing in it.

When Olive runs into the maze, she wakes up on an isolated and undetectable island where a decades-long war between two factions of rival teens is in full swing.

Trapped, Olive must slowly attempt to win each of her new comrades’ hearts as Will—their mysterious, stoically quiet, and handsome leader—steals hers.

Olive is only sure about one thing: her troop consists of the good guys, and she’ll do whatever it takes to help them win the war and get back home.

CONTEMPORARY

The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed

Published by Simon Pulse

October 10th 2017

The Nowhere GirlsWho are the Nowhere Girls?

They’re everygirl. But they start with just three:

Grace Salter is the new girl in town, whose family was run out of their former community after her southern Baptist preacher mom turned into a radical liberal after falling off a horse and bumping her head.

Rosina Suarez is the queer punk girl in a conservative Mexican immigrant family, who dreams of a life playing music instead of babysitting her gaggle of cousins and waitressing at her uncle’s restaurant.

Erin Delillo is obsessed with two things: marine biology and Star Trek: The Next Generation, but they aren’t enough to distract her from her suspicion that she may in fact be an android.

When Grace learns that Lucy Moynihan, the former occupant of her new home, was run out of town for having accused the popular guys at school of gang rape, she’s incensed that Lucy never had justice. For their own personal reasons, Rosina and Erin feel equally deeply about Lucy’s tragedy, so they form an anonymous group of girls at Prescott High to resist the sexist culture at their school, which includes boycotting sex of any kind with the male students.

Us Kids Know by J.J. Strong

Published by Razorbill

October 24th 2017

Us Kids KnowWe all knew about Cullen Hickson.

Siblings Brielle and Ray O’Dell are lost. Anxious. Restless. Bullied at his Catholic school for being small and timid, Ray wants to be someone people respect or, even better, someone people fear. Meanwhile, Brielle—whose “popular” status feels tenuous at best—knows that something is off about her friendship with the shiny, happy, sophisticated blond girls on her field hockey team. They don’t really understand Bri, and if Bri is being totally honest, she doesn’t really understand them either.

When storied delinquent Cullen Hickson enters the orbit of the O’Dell siblings, though, everything changes. Brielle and Ray find an alluring, addictive outlet in Cullen, who opens their eyes to a world they didn’t know existed. For Ray, that means experiencing the singular thrill of small-time crime—from breaking and entering to grand theft auto—while Brielle quickly dives into an all-consuming romance with the enigmatic upperclassman.

But as Brielle and Ray find themselves more and more entwined with Cullen’s antics, the once-thrilling experiences begin to feel increasingly dangerous, culminating in a life-changing event that shakes the teens to their core.

Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

Published by Swoon Reads

January 23rd 2018

Let's Talk About LoveAlice is secretly asexual, and that’s the least important thing about her.

She’s a college student, has a great job, amazing friends, and is fine being single—nope, that’s a lie. Alice wants rom com-grade romance: feels, cuddling, kissing, and swoons galore—as long as it doesn’t lead to having sex.

After her last relationship ends with soul-crushing parting words from her ex, Alice swears off relationships for good. Stick a fork in her, she’s done. Everyone Alice tries to date is so sure love and sex have to go together, and there doesn’t seem to be any way to convince them otherwise.

But when Alice experiences instant attraction for the first time with her coworker Takumi, she doesn’t know what to do. If Alice tells him the truth, it can only end in heartache. But there’s something about Takumi that makes him worth the risk…

All the Forever Things by Jolene Perry

Published by Albert Whitman & Company

April 1st 2017

30201517Nothing is forever. Gabe knows that more than most girls. After all, she lives in a funeral home (it’s the family business), and she gets that everything in the world dies eventually – people, rumors, fashion trends, the nickname “Graveyard Gabe.” But her best friend, Bree, has been a constant in her life; it’s always been the two of them together. Until Bree starts seeing a guy who stands for everything Gabe thought they were against. How could Bree change her mind and go for someone like Bryce Johnson?

Now Gabe doesn’t know who her friend is anymore. And the only person who seems to have time for her is Hartman, the new guy, who is somehow not weirded out by the funeral home stuff (well, a little). Still, Gabe doesn’t want to lose her mind over a guy the way Bree has, so she holds back.

But a very strange prom night (driving the family hearse instead of a limo) will change what Gabe knows about friendship, love, life, and everything that comes after – forever and otherwise.

The Rules:

Pick a book that is on your shelf or one that you have read in the past and fill out each letter of the Alphabet. The idea is to use books that you have either read or that are on your TBR list.

The books that are underlined are books that I have read and the rest are books that are on my TBR. I tried to pick books that I love and enjoyed that I haven’t talked about much on my blog or TBR books that I am dying to pick up soon.

The Hype is Too Much (Freebie) | Top 10 Tuesday [24]

Top 10 Tuesday

Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday weekly fun on my blog! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This week’s topic is Top 10 Books Where the Hype is Too Much (Freebie).

This week’s topic is a freebie where we get to choose our own topic. I have decided to talk about the books I feel are receiving too much hype. Now hype can either be a good thing or a negative thing. For me when a book is too hyped it turns me off from reading it right away. Some examples of this would be Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and Winter by Marissa Meyer. I didn’t read Red Queen until 6 months after its release when the hyped died down, and I still have yet to read Winter the conclusion to The Lunar Chronicles.

What is your take on the subject? And here are the 10 books that are receiving too much hype for 2016!


10. The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

The Shadow Queen


9. A Gathering Darkness by V.E. Schwab

A Gathering of Shadows


8. The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

The Crown's Game


7. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Passenger


6. The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven King


5. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Glass Sword


4. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Mist and Fury


3. Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Heartless


2. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Lady Midnight


1. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Well there you have it! Top 10 Books Where the Hype is Too Much (Freebie). Do you agree with my choices? What books coming out in 2016 do you think are receiving too much hype?

It also means a new set of books I want to read. So without further ado, here are the five books that are on my September TBR!


Shadow and BoneShadow and Bone (The Grisha #1)

Hyped Books I’ve Never Read | Top 10 Tuesdays

Top10TuesdayHey guys!

I’ve decided to join the Top 10 Tuesday Weekly fun on my blog because why the hell not? Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This weeks topic is the Top 10 Hyped Books I’ve Never Read. I had a teeny bit of trouble gathering ten books for this list because I am always reading the hyped up books when they come out. I just can’t help it. I mean what’s the point of all the hype if the book isn’t any good? So the books I put on this list are the hyped books I have yet to read, because lets face it, I’m going to read them sooner or later!

10) The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze RunnerI’ve seen the movie and I’ve been slacking on picking up this book. Maybe 2015 will be the year I do it!

9) I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

I'll Give You the SunThis has been recommended to me from several different people. It has won awards. The plot sounds like a book I would love. All this awesomeness and I have yet to read it.

8) Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork AngelI am slowly but surely getting through The Mortal Instruments series so I can finally start the prequel to it all. I’m only several years behind the hype.

7) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

FangirlNaturally after reading Eleanor and Park I wanted to immediately start Fangirl… but…but…yeah. I still haven’t read it.

6) The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

The Final EmpireBooktube exploded with this book and has literally hyped this book up so much that I want to go as far as to purchase the UK covers. Come on, just look at the beauty of them!

5) A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

A Game of ThronesYes this book is huge and wordy. And yes I will eventually read it. I just have to grow some balls first.

4) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven BoysI am finally going to cave and read this book. I purchased it and it’s close up on the TBR list. Look out for it soon!

3) Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and BoneSame goes for this glory! After seeing the hype for Six of Crows, a story held in the same world as this one, I will naturally have to read this one first!

2) Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Red RisingThis freaking book has been taunting me on my TBR list for so goddamn long. I’ve already started it but have since put it down. Not because its not interesting or good, I’m just weird like that.

1) An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

An Ember in the AshesOk, this book. Do I even have to say anything? It was so good that it went from being a standalone book to a freaking series. It’s so hyped I don’t even know what to do with it! Duh, I will read it.

Well there you have it. The Top Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read. Let me know what you guys think of my list and share with me what are some of your hyped books you have yet to read.

See ya next time,
