The Undead Pool / Kim Harrison / February 25, 2014
I really enjoy urban fantasy and this series has been on my radar for a while. I just haven’t taken the plunge and gotten into it. Hopefully this will be the push I need to start it, I rea the first book in the Madison Avery series and thought it was a very interesting take on reapers, so hopefully The Hollows will live up to my expectations.
Under a Silent Moon / Elizabeth Haynes / April 15, 2014
This is the first in a new detective series, which tells the story of two mysterious deaths that happen on the same night on the outskirts of the same town. Told over a period of six days the story is fast moving and full of shocking details. It is told from multiple points of view, so it will be interesting to see how all the voices mesh.
We Are the Goldens / Dana Reinhardt / May 27, 2014
A story about a girl who idolizes her older sister. Upon learning a secret about her sister the girl must decide how she is going to handle it. Will she continue to be the confidante she has always been, or will she falter under pressure and ruin their close relationship? This is a super short book, fewer than 200 pages that I think will be a fast, interesting read.
Welcome to the Dark House / Laurie Faria Stolarz / July 22, 2014
I really loved Stolarz’s Blue if for Nightmare series and I can’t wait to start this story. The concept is very interesting, seven teens have won a contest to meet a famous horror director and things go a bit dark. To survive they have to face their darkest demons and nightmares.
The Wind is Not a River / Brian Payton / January 7, 2014
A historical fiction novel that tells the story of a husband and wife separated during World War II. John travels to Alaska to investigate the Japanese invasion of some Alaskan islands and is lost in the wilderness, fending for his life against the elements and trying to avoid detection from the enemy. Helen his wife is also trying to find her husband and bring him back home. I really like this time period and this seems like a really well written and interesting story.
This starts the January 27th haul.
The 5th Wave / Rick Yancey / May 7, 2013
I really like invasion stories and this one seems to be getting a lot of great reviews. I have been lusting after this book for so long and I am so excited to own it, in a very nice hardcover edition no less. I skimmed the first few pages and it is going to be amazing.
All the Truth That’s in Me / Julie Berry / September 26, 2013
This is another historical fiction about a young girl, Judith, who disappears with her best friend for two years. Only Judith returns, disfigured and unable to speak. When her town is attacked she must make the choice to recover her voice or keep her secrets and risk changing her world forever.
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea / April Genevieve Tucholke / August 15, 2013
First of all, I love this cover. I don’t usually gush over covers but for some reason this one just really appeals to me. Second, the Devil in stories really intrigues me. If this boy really turns out to be the devil I don’t even know how I will handle it.
Champion / Marie Lu / November 5, 2013
I have no idea what this book is about because I don’t want to spoil the series for myself. I also got Prodigy which will be in a later STS, bus still need to get Legend so I can marathon read these!
Children of the Revolution / Peter Robinson / August 15, 2013
This is the latest book in the long Inspector Banks series. I don’t know much about it, just that it is a mystery book and it seems like a very good series.
