I hope you’re having a good weekend. Mine has been great so far as England has just got through to the semi-final of the world cup and I’m all giddy because of that. But anyway, to the matter at hand – my overwhelming and overflowing TBR pile. I haven’t done a TBR post in a couple of months because I would write them and then not stick to them, but I have missed having the assistance in deciding what I was going to read this month so I’m bringing them back.
The first is A Bad Boy Stole My Bra by Lauren Price. This ARC was sent to me by Ink Road/Black and White Publishing in return for an honest review and I am very excited to get into this one. A review for this will be up on the 22nd so keep an eye out for that!
Imagine waking up in the dead of night to find your hot new neighbour dangling out of your window. What’s more, he’s clutching your tattiest bra in his hand.
What. The. Actual. Fudge.
When bad boy Alec Wilde moves in next door to Riley, sparks fly. After their ‘unconventional’ introduction, Riley is determined to get her own back. A nemesis is just the distraction she needs: inside, she’s barely holding it together. It’s game on. But behind the banter, there’s a side to Alec that Riley actually likes. How can she get through to the real him when she can’t even take herself seriously?
The second is P.s. I Like You by Kasie West. I have been waiting on this release for ages and then I got into my exams and all other hectic things at this time of year and forgot about it until I saw it in Waterstones the other day and picked it up, so this has jumped straight to the top of the pile again.
Signed, sealed, delivered…
While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favourite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue! Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelt out…
The third book on my TBR this month is Wings of Flesh and Bones by Cathrina Constantine which is another book sent to me in return for an honest review, this one from YA Bound Book Reviews.
An Angel. A Witch. A Demon. And A Choice.
Creatures from outer realms suck, as any gatekeeper worth their salt will tell you. Welcome to Rogan’s life, an orphaned seventeen-year-old who lives and trains with other misfits under her uncle’s roof, keeping Earth safe from non-human realm jumpers. Rogan’s biggest issue concerns her uncle’s short leash with her freedom—that is of course, until she’s taken by a notorious witch, and her life begins to unravel. Soon, the supernatural beauty discovers there’s a reason her uncle kept such a tight lock on her whereabouts, and that she has more than angel blood running through her veins.
Eighteen-year-old Max is an angel, and Rogan’s mentor and guardian. He’s well aware of her tenacious inability to obey orders, though he also knows she’s a fierce fighter. When he’s involved in a scheme that ultimately gets Rogan kidnapped, he must battle his way back to her in an attempt to save her from the darkness threatening to possess her.
The first is Struck (Struck #1) by Joss Stirling which I bought a while back and cannot wait to get into because it sounds so great! Like if Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls Series mixed with The Lynburn Legacy by Sarah Rees Brennan, so bring that on.
Previously published as ‘Storm and Stone’, this gripping novel by Joss Stirling is being reissued as ‘Struck’. Behind the ivy-clad walls of an exclusive boarding school, lurks a sinister web of corruption, scandal, and conspiracy. American student Raven Stone has noticed something is horribly wrong. First, there were the unexplained disappearances. Then there were the teachers’ lies. And now the death threats …Also entangled in the disturbing turn of events is the enigmatic Kieran Storm – a fellow student with a killer intellect and a body to die for. He’s heading for trouble and taking her with him. Raven can feel herself falling in love, but can she trust a boy she knows almost nothing about?
The final book on my TBR this month is one I have had on my TBR for what seems like forever! Lament (Book of Faeries #1) by Maggie Stiefvater. I have had this on many TBR’s before and hopefully, I will eventually 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.
I think that is all, but you know me…I’ve probably forgotten something. But anyway, I hope you have had a dandy weekend and that your week is just as great!
