I’m still flabbergasted that it is March already! I have a feeling I might not be reading as much in March because I have all my dissertations and assignments due in March and that’s going to take up majority of my time – so if this is VERY short then you know why.
A New Standalone:
Darin C. Brown approached me back in January about reviewing his debut novel The Sight of Demons (The Master of Perceptions #1). I was more than happy to accept and give it a shot. I feel a little guilty about keeping him waiting on my review for so long and I need a new standalone to read (It is part of a series but currently it is a lone novel) so this was an easy pick for me.
Hunter Miller sees demons. The terrifying shadows engulf him and everyone he knows—yet nobody else notices their presence.
Hunter can’t escape them, so he sets out to understand them. Why do they follow him? What are they trying to tell him?
In this first installment of the Master of Perceptions series, pre-teen Hunter discovers that every sensation the demons produce—whether it be sight, sound, texture, flavor, or smell—has a different meaning, and that by breaking this code, he just might be able to harness their power.
A Book I am Re-reading:
I lent one of my favourite series of all time (Lux Series) to my friend Cara who is now completely gushing over how incredible it is and it has relighted my obsession so I decided to read Oblivion (Lux #1.5, 2.5, 3.5) by Jenifer L. Armentrout. This might take me a while as my version is the first three books in the series from Daemons POV so it will take me the same time as reading three books.
I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.
And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.
But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can’t stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.
Falling for Katy—a human—won’t just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen…
A New Series:
I have owned the first two in the Book of Faeries Series by Maggie Stiefvater for ages and I am only now getting around to reading it! I love the concept and can’t wait to try it: hopefully I have enough time to get to it.
Sixteen-year-old Dee is a cloverhand – someone who can see faeries. When she finds herself irresistibly drawn to beautiful, mysterious Luke, Dee senses that he wants something more dangerous than a summer romance.
But Dee doesn’t realize that Luke is an assassin from the faerie world.
And she is his next target.
Another TBR done and a whole month of reading ahead – also a months worth of schoolwork and stress but lets just gloss over that fact and focus on the reading, it will get me through. Any books your interested in reading this month?
Thanks and Happy Reading,
