Hello lovelies! Here’s another Friday Finds! I’m really looking forward to some of the books here. Let me know what you think of any of the books I’ve listed. You can click the covers to be taken to their GoodReads pages.

Significance by Shelly Crane is a book that I thought that I wouldn’t ever be interested in, but somehow the synopsis has drawn me in.
11731861

Maggie is a seventeen year old girl who’s had a bad year. Her mom left, her dad is depressed, she’s graduating, barely, and her boyfriend of almost three years dumped her for a college football scholarship. Lately she thinks life is all about hanging on by a thread and is gripping tight with everything she has.

Then she meets Caleb.

She saves his life and instantly knows there’s something about him that’s intriguing but she is supposed to be on her way to a date with his cousin. But things change when they touch, sparks ignite. Literally. They imprint with each other and she sees their future life together flash before her eyes. She learns that not only is she his soul mate, and can feel his heartbeat in her chest, but there is a whole other world of people with gifts and abilities that she never knew existed. She herself is experiencing supernatural changes unlike anything she’s ever felt before and she needs the touch of his skin to survive. Now, not only has her dad come out of his depression to be a father again, and a pain as well, but Caleb’s enemies know he’s imprinted and are after Maggie to stop them both from gaining their abilities and take her from him. Can Caleb save her or will they be forced to live without each other after just finding one another?

With a synopsis like that, I have to have it!! Nonetheless, I’m intrigued about what happens between Maggie and Caleb. I’m looking forward to reading what type of supernatural being they are. I’ve actually literally just downloaded this book! I don’t know about any other countries, but in Canada, we have Kobo, and the first book is free!!

Never Let You Fall is the first book to the series called “The Prophecy of Tyalbrook,” and frankly, I am really looking forward to this book. I just checked my library to see if they have it, and they do not. Kobo does though! It’s only about $1.32 CAD, so I’m going to buy it soon.

25690378Their journey began with a promise… 

“I won’t let you fall. You will not die for me. I can’t live with that, Xander, and I would rather let them take me before I let them kill you.” He opened his mouth to argue, but I held up my hand. “Don’t argue it. There’s no point. I’ve made up my mind.” 
He shook his head, but didn’t argue. Instead, he promised as he always did, “If anything happens to you… if we get separated, if you martyr yourself… anything, Skye. As long as I am breathing, I will always find you. Always.” 
Those were precisely the words I’d counted on him saying. 

AN ORPHAN with no memory of her past and no hope for her future. 
A GUARDIAN determined to keep her safe. 
A DESTINY neither of them expected.

I’m most excited to read this book because the synopsis says that the main character is an orphan, and she has no memory. I have no idea why, but I’m being drawn to those books so much these days!!

Shadows by Paula Weston is a book that I would think that I would see at my local library, but alas, it’s not. Never mind that though, I am obsessed with all things Angels and War. So there’s no surprise that I’ve requested it at my secondary library.

Love. Nightmares. Angels. War. A fast-paced, compelling debut novel from a fresh new voice in YA.

It’s been almost a year since Gaby Winters was in the car crash that killed her twin brother, Jude. Her body has healed in the sunshine of Pandanus Beach, but her grief is raw and constant.

It doesn’t help that every night in her dreams she kills demons and other hell-spawn. And then Rafa comes to town. Not only does he look exactly like the guy who’s been appearing in Gaby’s dreams, he claims a history with her brother that makes no sense.

Gaby is forced to accept that what she thought she knew about herself and her life is only a shadow of the truth – and that the truth is more likely to be found in the shadows of her nightmares.

Who is Rafa? Who are the Rephaim? And most importantly – who can she trust?’

I can already see that there’s going to be a lot of speculation within Gaby. Like, I don’t know what will happen until I actually get my hands on this book. And when I do, I’m going to read the crap out of this book! What’s most important at the moment though, is that cover!! I’m drooling over it.

So I heard about Witch Song, literally years ago. I added Witch Song to my TBR in 2011. I heard about it, and honestly only think I added it to my TBR because of the cover, haha.

10400575Brusenna is the last. 

All the other witches have been captured, their songs stolen and twisted from harmony and growth into chaos and death. She alone must stand against an evil much older and darker than anything she could ever imagine—an evil every witch before her has failed to vanquish. 

Brusenna must be the first.

I’ve forgotten about this book all these years, so that’s why I checked on Kobo, and the first book is free! Free books are always great. Because Witch Song is now on my Kobo, I have no idea when I’ll get around to reading this book. — As usual though, I am excited to know why these witches have been captured and why their songs have been stolen from them.

So as you may know, or not know, I’m actually really drawn into books that have this smoky effect on their covers. Like Vesper for instance!

7664713Emily Webb is a geek. And she’s happy that way. Content hiding under hoodies and curling up to watch old horror flicks, she’s never been the kind of girl who sneaks out for midnight parties. And she’s definitely not the kind of girl who starts fights or flirts with other girls’ boyfriends. Until one night Emily finds herself doing exactly that . . . the same night one of her classmates—also named Emily—is found mysteriously murdered.

The thing is, Emily doesn’t know why she’s doing any of this. By day, she’s the same old boring Emily, but by night, she turns into a thrill seeker. With every nightfall, Emily gets wilder until it’s no longer just her personality that changes. Her body can do things it never could before: Emily is now strong, fast, and utterly fearless. And soon Emily realizes that she’s not just coming out of her shell . . . there’s something much bigger going on. Is she bewitched by the soul of the other, murdered Emily? Or is Emily Webb becoming something else entirely—something not human?

As Emily hunts for answers, she finds out that she’s not the only one this is happening to—some of her classmates are changing as well. Who is turning these teens into monsters—and how many people will they kill to get what they want?

Vesper; written by Jeff Sampson, is one of those times where both the books cover and the synopsis are this duo team. I am absolutely looking forward to reading about Emily and her not-so-dream dreams.

These are the 5 books that I’ve found for this weeks Friday Finds! Thanks so much for reading. Have you read any of these books? Have you added anything new to your To Be Read list lately?

Until next time,
Adele
