My hope is by posting these “Library Reads” is that: 1 – I remember what I’ve borrowed, when I borrowed it, and 2 – is that maybe you’ll borrow them too! And lastly, these are my thoughts on the books I borrow. Whether I’m looking forward to the story, or am iffy about everything a book promises. All is here!
This month I’ve borrowed,
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows; I’ve read this with a friend and the story has managed to take my by surprise. I didn’t think I would like the story as much as I do. The main character has drew me in. And the rest of the story has so much promise!!!
The Siren by Kiera Cass was a book that I had been waiting to read. The library that I borrowed it from was able to have it available on shelves, but other than that, you couldn’t request it. So when my small brain managed to figure that out, it was a month after the actual publication (I think..) and the branch that I go to had it! So I went there, returned some books, and voila! I borrowed it. [my review is here]
I kept the plot of the book a secret to myself. I didn’t even read the synopsis before borrowing the book, and I’m honestly so glad that I did that.
Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick, which is the second book in the Hush Hush saga. I’m really looking forward to reading this book because hoestly, I really liked the last book. I look forward to the troubles that Patch and Nora will go through.
The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima; which honestly, I’ve been eyeing this book for a long time now. I couldn’t get it at my local library for some reason. And I couldn’t get it from the other library I go to. So I put it off of my mind for a while. Then a few months back I requested it…For an unknown reason, they had it back? Now I have The Demon King in my hands, and Im honestly looking forward to reading it. I’m going to keep my mind open, and hopefully not get my hopes up.
The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman has such apretty cover! I didn’t know much about this book other than I wanted to read it all because of the covers artwork. And a friend of mine recommended the book to me anyway, so I thought, “Why not?” and requested it through my local library! All I know about the book is that it’s a historical fiction book. What’s up with all the historical fiction books lately???
Half Bad by Sally Green is a book that I borrowed a looong time ago but never got around to reading. I didn’t know what the book was about then, and I still don’t know now. I’m planning on keeping it that way. Although, if the books plot or characters anger me, I have no shame in no wanting to finish reading the story anymore.
Lailah by Nikki Kelly – ‘The girl knows she’s different. She doesn’t age. She has no family. She has visions of a past life, but no clear clues as to what she is, or where she comes from. But there is a face in her dreams – a light that breaks through the darkness. She knows his name is Gabriel.’ I put in the synopsis because that’s the simplest way for me to tell you what’s up with this book. Just that little bit of the synopsis makes me want to read this book. More than that though, there are vampires in this story! I feel like I haven’t read a vampire book in a long time. It’s probably only been a few weeks though haha.
Antigoddess by Kendare Blake which is a book about gods and goddesses who never die. Until they start falling ill and dying. And that’s how far I got into reading the synopsis! Those two sentences. Well, actually, I don’t know if they actually die. I’m probably making that part up. But who knows; I won’t know until I read the book! – I’ve borrowed this book before but never got around to reading it. Maybe this time will be the time that I finally do!
Born of Illusion by Teri Brown is a book that I’ve had my eye on for a while, but have never found in stores. So I decided a while ago that I’d borrow the book from the library. I’ve only just now borrowed the book. I honestly have no idea what to expect when I get around to reading the book. — I looked on GoodReads, and saw what people shelved these books as. Historical Fiction (which is a bummer for me) and fantasy and paranormal; with a side of steampunk which isn’t a bummer at all! I’m now really looking forward to reading for the fantasy and magic!
Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough is a book about two girls who are sent to their aunts house to live there, for some reason. But things quickly get freaky when one of the girls is convinced that there’s something otherworldly happening at the house.
Sleep No More by Aprilynne Pike is a book that I have borrowed before. I just never got around to reading it unfortunately. Now though I’ve borrowed Sleep No More, once again and am absolutely looking forward to reading this story. So the history behind this novel is that there is such a thing as psychics. They’re widely known. They’ve accepted that they have visions and what not. The thing is though, is that psychics are forbidden to act on what they’ve seen. But with the vision of a class mates death, the main character has to act on it. She just can’t let it happen. She tries her hardest to prevent this other characters death. – And that’s all I know.
Lindsey Lost by Suzanne Marie Phillips – ‘Even though Micah’s a star pitcher, his older sister Lindsey is the real deal—a runner so good, she has a shot at the Olympics. The two of them urge each other on, and are each other’s best support. Then the unthinkable happens: Lindsey is murdered, and Micah may have been the last person to see her. But he can’t remember what happened, no matter what their parents tell him, no matter what the police say. Did he witness his sister’s murder—or commit it? Can he recall the truth before his life is sentenced to end, too?‘
I couldn’t recap what the synopsis is. I just had to put the whole thing in this post! So Micha’s sister, Lindsey, is murdered. This synopsis is really giving off a ‘Unforgettable‘ vibe. Am I the only one who thinks so?
Those are all the library books I have for this post! Thank you so, so much for reading! I absolutely appreciate it.
