Hi guys! I went to the library a couple of hours ago and checked out eight books! 😀
Well, technically, I renewed two books and checked out six new ones. But I’m really happy about all of them, and that’s what matters. 😉
- The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson – I’m 48% done with this book and it’s really good so far! I only have one issue, and I’ll get to that in my review. Hopefully that will be up tomorrow! 🙂
- Across The Universe by Beth Revis – I’m looking forward to getting into this! I may have actually read it a few years ago. The synopsis and names sound a little familiar, but I don’t remember any details. So I’ll read it anyway! 😀
I checked out:
- Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout – After finishing Opal I knew I’d need to get my hands on this asap. That was such a brutal ending! I’ve heard a handful of people say this book isn’t as good as its predecessors, and while I respect their opinions, I don’t know if JLA can write a book that’s only “good”. I can’t wait to see where this series goes!
- Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo – The ending of Shadow and Bone wasn’t as brutal as Opal, but it was still intense. I need to know what happens to Alina and Mal! I’m also curious to see if the Darkling redeems himself. I know people ship him and Alina, but I personally don’t like that at the moment.
- A Million Suns by Beth Revis – I went ahead and got the sequel to Across The Universe, even though I don’t know if I’ll like it. Someone told me that I’d want the next book immediately and the library had it, so I’m prepared. XD
I also looked for Isla and The Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins and The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson because they’re both books in series I want to continue (or finish, in the former case). But neither of them were there, so unfortunately I’ll have to wait until next time. I did pick up three other books though, and they’re all first books in series (in one case, a duology) I’ve been wanting to start! 😀
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – I’m so excited to finally be able to read this! I’ve seen it all over social media, and it’s one of my favorite BookTuber’s (Kat of Katytastic) favorite series! I have super high expectations for this book, and I hope it doesn’t disappoint! 😀
- If I Stay by Gayle Forman – I was kind of intrigued by when I saw the movie trailer, but I knew if I wanted to watch it, I had to read it first. That was a few years ago though, and I’m just now getting to it. Haha, oops. XD I’ve heard this is a tearjerker, but no book or movie has made me cry yet so I’m not worried about that.
- The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black – I believe this is an upper MG, but it sounds interesting so I’m going to give it a shot. I know some people think it’s a ripoff of Harry Potter, but I don’t think I’ll agree with them. Again, I respect their opinions, but I’m a huge fan of Cassie, and I don’t think I could dislike anything she writes. I’ve never read anything by Holly Black though, so this will also be an introduction to her writing. 🙂
And that’s it for today’s haul! It’s also my last haul of 2015, with the exception being books I get for Christmas. 🙂
I hope to finish The Kiss of Deception tomorrow, and post my review then as well. What should I read next? Feel free to suggest a book in the comments. 😀
Until next time- Olivia ❤
