Hello friends! Long time, no see.
I’m finally a graduate! I hope this will mean more time to blog and read, but we’ll see.
At least now I’ve got a sort of schedule I’m trying to uphold blog-wise.
Anyway, there are a load of new releases this month I’m very excited about, so I thought I’d talk a bit about them.
|Replica, Lauren Oliver|
This is a very peculiar book. Apparently it can be read many different ways. I wonder wether or not the way you choose to read it will affect your experience with the story. I have yet to read any book by Lauren Oliver, but this one has me intrigued, so it might be my first.
|The midnight star, Marie Lu|
Marie Lu is another author I’ve never read anything about, and this book happens to be the conclusion of a trilogy. However, this one has me very excited since the premise is not exactly a usual one. From what I gather, the protagonist of the trilogy is on her way to become a villain. This seems like the perfect kind of series to binge-read.
|What light, Jay Asher|
I’ve been meaning to read Asher’s Thirteen reasons why for a while now, and I was actually thinking about reading it this month. If I like it, I think I might give this one a try. Plus, the cover is gorgeous.
|Gemina, Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff|
No, I haven’t read Illuminae (I might have been living under a rock for a while.). Yes, I want to. Yes, I’m kind of scared that I won’t like it, since the hype around it is ridiculous. Everyone and their mother loves this book, and I have to admit, the idea of telling a story through a lot of different mediums intrigues me.
|The twelve days of Dash & Lily, Rachel Cohn & David Levithan|
I read Dash & Lily’s book of dares two years ago, and I enjoyed it. I think this might be a cute story to read around Christmas time.
|Glitter, Aprilynne Pike|
This story sounds so insane that I’m actually really curious to check it out. It’s being pitched as Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette. How crazy is that?
|Blood red snow white, Marcus Sedgwick|
This is actually not a new book, but one that is being revamped. Originally published in 2007, Blood red snow white is not a fairy tale retelling despite what the title may suggest. This is a historical fiction novel set in Russia, sprinkled with a dash of fairy tale. It sounds amazing, and since it has been a while since I’ve read a historical fiction novel, I think I might check this one out.
Are you excited about any of these books? Let me know! :)
