Hello all! I hope this week has treated you well. If not, then maybe you’ll find a new book you’ll want to read in this post! Let’s get to it, shall we?

24890845In less than a second…
… two of the things Cal Ryan cares most about–a promising baseball career and Lizzie, one of his best friends–are gone forever.
In the hours that follow…
…Cal’s damaged heart is replaced. But his life will never be the same.
Everyone expects him to pick up the pieces and move on.
But Lizzie is gone, and all that remains for Cal is an overwhelming sense that her death was his fault. And a voice in his head that just…won’t…stop.
Cal thought he and his friends could overcome any obstacle. But grief might be the one exception.
And that might take a lifetime to accept…

What Remains by Helene Dunbar is a book that was recommended to me through GoodReads. I’m actually really interested in this book because the main thing about this story is that the point of view isn’t female. The point of view is male. Not only that though, but it sounds like Cal is schizophrenic as well.

The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige is a book that I didn’t 18602341think that I would be interested it, yet I am. This book is the second book to Dorothy Must Die. I’ve read Dorothy Must Die, and I’ve been thinking of re-reading it again for reviewing purposes. I can’t actually remember if I liked it or not, so to re-read Dorothy Must Die would have to be a must for me to read The Wicked Will Rise. Which by the way, I’m finding that the cover for this book; both books actually, are really pretty..

I’m not going to add the synopsis for The Wicked Will Rose just incase someone who might be reading this hasn’t read Dorothy Must Die yet.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart. […]”

Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout is a book that I’ve had my eye on for a while. I don’t like normally reading the synopsis for her books. I like the surprise that comes when I read her books. For Wicked though, I’m happy to know what is supposed to happen in this book. I’ve also realized that with Armentrout’s books the synopsis’s really only give a little of what actually happens in the book. And I know that synopsis’s are only supposed to give a little away, but somehow the synopsis’s for Armentrout’s books give away less than that.

Orphaned at the age of six, Jane Williams has grown up in a series of foster homes, learning to survive in the shadows of life. Through hard work and determination, she manages to win a scholarship to the exclusive Birch Grove Academy. There, for the first time, Jane finds herself accepted by a group of friends. She even starts tutoring the head mistress’s gorgeous son, Lucien. Things seem too good to be true.

They are. […]”

Dark Companion by Marta Acosta is a book that I’ve actually owned for a long time, but keep on forgetting about. I’m guessing that the story takes place in a school setting, so that should be exciting! Looking on the GoodReads page for this book, I read that there is a Paranormal side to the story. Even better than that though is that there’s supposedly vampires in the story! I’m really into Vampire stories again, so this should be good!!

“Every girl who had taken the test has died.
Now it’s Kate’s turn.
It’s always been just Kate and her mom – and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate’s going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear that her mother won’t live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. […]

The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter is a book based on mythology. I am a huge sucker for mythology. So when I got this book a long time ago, and totally forgot about it… I was really excited to read about this girl who has to take a test that usually kills everyone who has taken it. And that’s all I really know about The Goddess Test for now, haha.

Thank you for reading my post. Have you read any of these books? A few I’ve had on my TBR list for a while, I just forgot about them, haha. If you’ve read a few of these books, what did you think of them?

Until next time,

Adele
