Archagel’s Viper (Guild Hunter #10) by Nalini Singh

This is one of my favorite series and I had it preordered the moment it was available on Amazon. Can’t wait to finish reading it and let you all know about it. If you haven’t picked up this series yet, try to and you might also fall in love with the main characters, a kick-butt no BS female heroine  and the same for the male protagonist.  You can find out more about the series on Nalinisingh.com .

Waiting on Wednesday (23) – An Inheritance of Ashes by Leah Bobet

Standard

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine spotlighting upcoming releases.

—————————————–

Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz

For Noa and Callum, being together is dangerous, even deadly. From the start, sixteen-year-old Noa senses that the mysterious transfer student to her Monterey boarding school is different. Callum unnerves and intrigues her, and even as she struggles through family tragedy, she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own.

But in Noa’s world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch—or a kiss. And Callum’s not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: Will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought? – Goodreads

Musing Mondays (1)

Standard

MusingMondays-ADailyRhythmMusing Mondays is a weekly meme that is hosted by a A Daily Rhythm,that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

  • I’m currently reading…
  • Up next I think I’ll read…
  • I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
  • I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: I bought the following book in the past week Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman. I actually got this the first day it came out, however, I decided to wait to read it on my vacation to the Dominican Republic. The reason I chose to write about this is that many of the reviews that I have read so far are saying some interesting things about the main characters and how different they seem. This has peeked my interest even more, because it creates a more complex world than the one that we were introduced to in To Kill A Mockingbird. I am very excited to see the new details that get exposed.

I am hoping to read Go Set a Watchman on the plane ride, hopefully I’ll finish it and like it.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your answer in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

Waiting on Wednesday (24) – Illuminae (The Illuminae Files 1) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files 1) by Amie Kaufman 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.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

An Inheritance of Ashes by Leah Bobet

The strange war down south—with its rumors of gods and monsters—is over. And while sixteen-year-old Hallie and her sister wait to see who will return from the distant battlefield, they struggle to maintain their family farm. When Hallie hires a veteran to help them, the war comes home in ways no one could have imagined, and soon Hallie is taking dangerous risks—and keeping desperate secrets. But even as she slowly learns more about the war and the men who fought it, ugly truths about Hallie’s own family are emerging. And while monsters and armies are converging on the small farm, the greatest threat to her home may be Hallie herself. – NetGalley
