Library Reads | #13 – Part Two

libraryrreads

This Library Reads is the second part to the first, which I posted on Friday last week. I’m just going to just into the books, because there are a lot. There are 13 books in this post, when I’m trying to keep these posts at a limit of 10.

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley

I’ve read this book before, but I just wanted to read it again. I liked this book the first time, and there are some scenes that I would love to re-read.

All Fall Down by Ally Carter

I don’t know what to expect from this book, or this author. I don’t think I’ve read anything of Carter’s before. I’m looking forward to finding out why Grace (the main character) would think that she’s crazy. And why her mother was murdered. And I really want to be there when she finds out who the killer is and how exactly Grace is going to make him pay. I think it’s pretty presumptuous though, to think that the killer is a man. The killer could literally be anyone..

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

A book that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time is The Shadow Queen. The Shadow Queen is a Young Adult Fantasy Fairy Tale. I’m believing though that The Shadow Queen is a retelling of Snow White. Which is great! I’ve really been enjoying retellings, even though literally every author has been taking a nab at it.

Ashes to Ashes by Melissa C. Walker

I borrowed Ashes to Ashes on a whim, and since it’s from the library it’s free so why not, right? Anyway, Ashes to Ashes is about a girl whose life is cut short by a tragic accident. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the book’s synopsis, but every time I try to read the synopsis, it’s like my head wants to go to different places. I would suggest reading the synopsis though. It’s too complicated for me to explain what exactly happens. But there are ghosts, and I think (traditionally at least) the story involves the MC and a ghost-ie falling in love.

Reckoning by Kerry Wilkinson

I mentioned this book a while ago, and decided that hey, why not? and I snatched this book off the shelves at the library. This book is about a girl who has one chance, one destiny. For what? I don’t know. But in a villiage called Martindale, Silver (the main character — AWESOME NAME BY THE WAY) takes the Reckoning. A coming of ages test that not only decides her place in soceity, but also determines taht Silver is to become an Offering for King Victor. There’s more to the synopsis, and the synopsis is very interesting! So I would 100% check out the book on GoodReads!!

The Boy Next Door by Katie Van Ark

The Boy Next Door is a book about a girl who is in-love with her figure skating partner, Gabe. I figured that it was time again for me to read a contemporary novel, so I grabbed this one off the shelf. I figure that the main characters are in-love with each other, and have been for a long time.

As Red as Blood by Salla Simukka

I actually have this book as an ARC, but I can’t concentrate when I read it on my tablet, so I figured that borrowing this book from the library is the next best thing! What happens is that the main character, Lumikki Anderson walks into her school’s dark room. A dark room, if you didn’t know is a room where you process photographs the old fashion way. When Lumikki walks in, she finds a stash of wet, crimson-coloured money. Thousands of Euros left to dry–splattered with someone’s blood.

Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd

I honestly have no idea what Her Dark Curisoity is about. All I know is what the front cover is telling me: To defeat the darkness, she must first embrace it. And if that isn’t pinging your curiosity, then I don’t know what will.

Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block

I have no idea what this book is about either, and I plan on keeping it that way. I know I saw this book a few years? Weeks? Months ago? Either way, I saw this book a few probably years ago on tumblr and the cover drew my eye, so when I saw this I was -again- like, why not?

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Let me be clear and honest about something: I probably won’t get around to reading this book. I will however, try my hardest to read it. I figure that the plot should be interesting no matter what. I actually saw the movie and my mind was blown quite a few times, but the gist of the story is what I get the most. And I’m excited to see what actually happens in the book!

Fate/Zero Volume 1 by Gen Urobuchi

I’m not usually into Graphic Novels. However, I watched the anime on Netflix a little while ago and completely loved it. When I went online to my library, and saw that they had this book, I had to have it! I really want to compare the two together. Anime versus Manga.

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Vol. 1 by Naoko Takeuchi, William Flanagan (Translator)

I got this on a whim because hello, it’s Sailor Moon. I loved the TV show as a kid, and would like to re-visit the story as an adult.

Under Threat by Robin Stevenson

So there isn’t much to the synopsis of this book. Seriously. All the synopsis is, is : “Franny’s life would be perfect if it weren’t for the death threats.” And that people have listed this book as a GBLT book. Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to reading Under Threat! And, the book is like, the size of a pocket book. It’s so small.

That’s all for this post! That’s so many library books! I’m once again drowning in all that is library books, but that’s okay cause they’re free to borrow!!!

Thank you for reading!
