Title: An American Story by Christopher Priest

This sounded so heartbreaking and so interesting, I knew I had to read it!

Synopsis: Ben Matson lost someone he loved in the 9/11 attacks. Or thinks he did – no body has been recovered, and she shouldn’t have been on that particular plane at that time. But he knows she was. The world has moved on from that terrible day. Nearly 20 years later, it has faded into a dull memory for most people. But a chance encounter rekindles Ben’s interest in the event, and the inconsistencies that always bothered him. Then the announcement of the recovery of an unidentified plane crash sets off a chain of events that will lead Ben to question everything he thought he knew . .   Continue reading “September 2018 Book Haul!”

Hi everyone!

I’M SO SORRY IT’S LATE! I am aware it is nearly the end of August but I have a very good reason why my July wrap ups are so late! In July me and Ben did something we’ve been wanting to do forever….WE MOVED IN TOGETHER! We’ve been in our new house a month now and I’m still so in love with it!

It was a long process as you can imagine as I’ve never moved before, so I kept getting behind on blog posts but I’m back now and very happy with our new house and being able to live with him!

So anyway let’s talk about what you’re here for – BOOKS!

Title: The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

I’m so excited to read this! It’s been on my radar for a while, and Orion were kind enough to send me a copy – thank you!

Synopsis: In the opulent world of Orléans, the people are born grey and damned, and only a Belle’s powers can make them beautiful. Camellia Beauregard wants to be the favourite Belle – the one chosen by the queen to tend to the royal family. But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes clear that being the favourite is not everything she always dreamed it would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia soon learns that her powers may be far greater – and far darker – than she ever imagined. When the queen asks Camellia to break the rules she lives by to save the ailing princess, she faces an impossible decision: protect herself and the way of the Belles, or risk her own life, and change the world forever.

Title: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

I WON A COMPETITION RAN BY VICTORIA AND MANAGED TO GET AN ARC OF THIS. IS THIS REAL LIFE???? I am still not okay after this, it is BEAUTIFUL.

Synopsis: Ever since Cass almost drowned (okay, she did drown, but she doesn’t like to think about it), she can pull back the Veil that separates the living from the dead . . . and enter the world of spirits. Her best friend is even a ghost. So things are already pretty strange. But they’re about to get much stranger. When Cass’s parents start hosting a TV show about the world’s most haunted places, the family heads off to Edinburgh, Scotland. Here, graveyards, castles, and secret passageways teem with restless phantoms. And when Cass meets a girl who shares her “gift,” she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil — and herself. And she’ll have to learn fast. The city of ghosts is more dangerous than she ever imagined. Continue reading “June 2018 Book Haul!”

Title: Warlock Holmes: My Grave Ritual by G. S. Denning

This isn’t technically an ARC as the author sent me a signed finished copy of it and it means the world to me! I absolutely love this series, and I couldn’t be happier to have this book in my hands – I will be reading it so soon!

Synopsis: As they blunder towards doom, Warlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson find themselves inconvenienced by a variety of eldritch beings. Christmas brings a goose that doesn’t let being cooked slow it down; they meet an electricity demon, discover why being a redhead is even tricker than one might imagine, and Holmes attempts an Irish accent. And, naturally, Moriarty is hanging around… in some form or other.

His best mates Brick and Meena thought he was special and so did his foster parents.

But there were others who would disagree.Evil corporations who were plotting with creatures from civilisations light years away and who wanted the secrets only the Last Prince could provide.

Title: Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody

I’ve actually already read this and I absolutely ADORED IT. Amanda Foody is amazing!

Synopsis: Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school―and her reputation―behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives unchanged. Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected―he’s a street lord and con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems. Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless society. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her family, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city… And she’ll need to play the game.

Title: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

I got the most amazing email from Pan Macmillan asking if I wanted to be on the blog tour for this book, and they said they’d send me an ARC and I basically screamed! This one of my most anticipated reads of the entire year so finally having it in my hands I could cry! I am so excited!!!

Synopsis: Zélie remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. When different clans ruled – Burners igniting flames, Tiders beckoning waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoning forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, anyone with powers was targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. Only a few people remain with the power to use magic, and they must remain hidden. Zélie is one such person. Now she has a chance to bring back magic to her people and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must learn to harness her powers and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. Danger lurks in Orïsha, where strange creatures prowl, and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to come to terms with the strength of her magic – and her growing feelings for an enemy.
