Library Reads #29

Library Reads: I’m a Library Lover, so these posts are where I document the books I’ve borrowed from either one library, of a few libraries. I’ll tell you a little bit about what I expect from the book, or the author’s writings. Whether what I say is a sentence long, or a few sentence’s. From doing these posts, I hope to spread a little of my love for libraries, while also informing you of books that you may or may not have known of!

The books mentioned are the ones I’ve borrowed from the beginning of  July to mid July.

Seven Black Diamonds, by Melissa Marr | Book Review #148

IMG_4416

Lilywhite Abernathy is a criminal. Her father’s “unconventional” business has meant a life of tightly held secrets, concealed weaponry, and a strict code. But Lily’s crime isn’t being the daughter of a powerful mob boss. Her guilt lies in the other half of her DNA—the part that can coax ancient rumors from stones and summon fire with a thought. Lily is part fae, which is a crime in her world. 

From the time before she was born, a war has been raging between humanity and fae. The Queen of Blood and Rage, ruler of both the Seelie and Unseelie courts, wants to avenge the tragic death of her heir—a death that was the fault of reckless humans.

Lily’s father has shielded her from the repercussions of her ancestry…until she is sent to the prestigious St. Columba’s school, straight into the arms of the Black Diamonds.

Mysterious, glamorous, and bound together in their mission but constantly at odds, Zephyr, Creed, Will, Roan, Violet, and Alkamy are a Sleeper cell of fae, planted in the human world to help destroy it from within. With covers as rock stars and celebrity children, the Black Diamonds carry out the queen’s war against humanity. And unbeknownst to Lilywhite, she’s been chosen to join them.

Now more than ever, Lily’s heritage puts her in peril, and even the romantic attention of the fae singer Creed Morrison isn’t enough to keep Lily from wanting to run back to the safer world of organized crime.

Seven Black Diamonds is the first book in its duology? Trilogy? Series? Goodreads only has Seven Black Diamonds, and the next book, One Blood Ruby, on their site. And as you can see, Seven Black Diamonds is by Melissa Marr. Who a few years back was one of my favourite authors. To see her returning to Faery is awesome! – It’s been years since I’ve read one of her books. Seriously. Years. I think it’s safe to say that as far as Melissa Marr’s Fae/rie books go, I found Seven Black Diamonds to be pretty good. Continue reading

Library Reads | #15

Hello lovelies! I have said, somewhere in previous posts, that I need to stop reading library books, and start focusing my attention on the many books I own. However, I always seem to be finding myself at the library picking up more and more books. Today’s post is no exception.

If you didn’t know, these Library Reads posts are for me to catalogue the books that I get out of the library. I put down a few thoughts of the books that I’ve borrowed prior to reading them.  Continue reading

TBR Tuesday | #10

Hello reader/s! I hope you’re well today! I’ve decided to have a weekly post about books that are on my TBR. TBR, if you don’t know is the abbreviation for To Be Read. My goal here is to shed some light on books that I’ve otherwise forgotten about. These books could be books I’ve been meaning to read from the library, or books that have been collecting dust on my shelves at home. My goal though is to say a little about the book and also give a little reasoning of why I want to read them.

I’ve been having fun these past ten weeks, with writing these posts, and taking pictures of my books. There was one time where I felt a little burdened by blogging, but that’s just because I hadn’t worked out my time wisely enough. However, I’m excited to be doing today’s post because I’ve been looking forward to this tenth post for so long! I told myself, that when the tenth post came around, I’d feature two books that I’ve read. Continue reading
