Sorry I didn’t upload last night as promised, I was stressed and tired and I napped straight through from 4 till 10 and then woke up for two hours before sleeping straight through till 9 this morning. Guessing NaNoWriMo is taking it’s toll. Anyway, November’s here! Yay! This will probably be shorter than my usual TBR as I am doing NaNo and I have a UCAS application to do and just other school work allowing little time for reading sadly.
I did very badly last month and despite reading an average amount of books only one of them was actually on my TBR, so, this is basically all of last months TBR plus the few I list here.
First is the first three novels in the Incandescent Series by Sylvie Parizeau. These were sent to me for a review (as were all of the books on this months TBR) which will be up soon. I can’t wait to read them. They have the most beautiful covers too.
All I knew was pain – a childhood filled with cruelty and villains who used and abused.
I first heard her sweet, angelical voice in the dark of night, when I lay bathed in my own impending death. Seventeen years later, it’s not the nightmare she pulled me out of that haunts me, but the glimpse of Happily Ever After she revealed just before disappearing.
They said she was a figment of my boundless imagination. A wish. A dream. Until I had no choice but to believe them, cherishing my imaginary saviour the only way I knew how – in fiction and lore.
But fantasy has a way of transforming reality. When I finally tire of being a citizen of the world, I take an impromptu sabbatical as a professor at a small college on the coast of Maine. And there I see her, the girl with the sea-green eyes and angelic voice.
My world turns upside down. Turns out my girl is for real, and the pull between us is anything but imaginary.
Happily Ever After has a story … and this one is mine.
The next book is The Funeral Flower by Michelle Jester. I did a book blitz on this last month and when I saw they wanted reviewers I just had to sign up, I haven’t read anything of any of the authors of this month (I think there was too many of’s in that sentence)
Devastated by the death of her grandfather, six-year-old Kelly Rodgers barely manages to cope with the profound loss. Already facing issues at school, she finds herself spiralling deeper into despair, when a fateful interaction through the fence in her backyard gives her hope. In the years following, Kelly realises that life’s tragedies can be dealt with through acceptance; until another series of agonising events leaves her heart in pieces.
Finding herself thrown into new surroundings, Kelly embraces her life and resolves to never fall in love. That decision is easy to keep until her junior year when she is drawn by an unavoidable attraction to the new guy, tormented James Delaney. The moment he looks up at her and smiles, her body betrays her. And he notices. She is determined to avoid him, but soon Kelly is forced to face the inevitable truth: She doesn’t want to avoid James… and he won’t let her.
Even though tragedy always follows love.
The final books that I need to read are books 1 and 2 in the Girl on Fire Series by Sue Wyshynski. I am not as excited for this as the others but hey, maybe it will surprise me, it has an interesting premise so who knows. I know there is a third in the series coming soon so, if I do enjoy these i have another to look forward to.
My name is Aeris Thorne. I am a genetically modified human.
All it took was a chance meeting–one tingling glance across a darkened street to change my life.
I’d been searching for my two best friends in the crowded Zenith Club, which was a really bad idea because I’m totally claustrophobic.
I burst outside, and that’s when I came face-to-face with the incredibly gorgeous Hunter Cayman. Dark-haired, tall, and leaning against an insane sports car, my pulse went haywire. Maybe things weren’t so bad after all. The young doctor had his long muscular arms crossed over his leather jacket clad chest, and all his six-foot something would make any girl’s knees turn weak. But then, if what Ella said was true, Hunter was the kind of guy who left behind a trail of broken hearts. And heartache was the last thing I needed right now.
Yet there’s something strange, something almost superhuman about Hunter. It’s more than that infuriatingly knowing grin. I’m trying to stop thinking about him, and I get the feeling he’s avoiding me, too. Yet Deep Cove is a tiny town and every time we run into each other the tension literally crackles, sparking around us. It just figures that when suddenly I’m in danger, he’s there to save me.
In truth, I should be dead. By all the logic in this world, I should be shattered to pieces. How fast was I going on that ATV when I smashed into those iron gates? Ninety? A hundred? And the men who were chasing me, where did they go?
Somehow I’m whole.
Maybe better than whole.
There’s no one I can talk to, not even my best friend, Gage. Gage hates Hunter. He wants Hunter’s laboratory to be shut down. He thinks Hunter’s a monster. And yet, if that’s true, if Hunter’s a monster…than what am I? I’m not sure what terrifies me more, the metamorphosis taking place inside me, or the intensely powerful connection with a guy whose heart and soul has become linked with mine.
So, that’s all for today folks. Have a fabulous weekend, until next time.
Thanks and Happy Reading,
