Goodreads Monday

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted here! To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off! Don’t forget to link back here and link up to the inlinkz below so that others can see what you picked.

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! We had a relatively long weekend here – and the weather was crazy hot!! If this is a sign of weather to come this summer, I am going to be melting! Anyway, this weeks pick for me is a book that I received from a monthly book date! I am part of a bookish group on facebook called Blind Date With a Book, in which there is a monthly theme and you can choose whether or not to participate in the month or not. We then get given a date and you have to send them a book! My date this month picked out a book for me that I have had on my TBR for ages now – and I am also in love with this cover and underneath the dust jacket!

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Published: August 20th 2013 by Bloomsbury USA

The year is 2059. Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London, based at Seven Dials, employed by a man named Jaxon Hall. Her job: to scout for information by breaking into people’s minds. For Paige is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant and, in the world of Scion, she commits treason simply by breathing.

It is raining the day her life changes for ever. Attacked, drugged and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. Paige is assigned to Warden, a Rephaite with mysterious motives. He is her master. Her trainer. Her natural enemy. But if Paige wants to regain her freedom she must allow herself to be nurtured in this prison where she is meant to die.

      I have heard some amazing things, so I am really looking forward to getting to it!! I have a couple of ARCs to get through, but hopefully after those πŸ™‚

    Oh my god Lauren this book is the start of one of my all-time favourite series so I really really hope you love it! If you’re anything like me the second you finish The Bone Season you will have to run out and buy the second book so you can start it straight away! πŸ˜€
    Great pick for this week. I can’t wait to see your review for The Bone Season. πŸ™‚

      I already have The Mime Order ordered through amazon … apparently it’s expected to be here tomorrow, but they haven’t actually sent it yet πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€ so, I’m interested to see whether it actually will turn up tomorrow!! I also ordered a copy of The Song Rising and managed to get my hands on the collectible edition!! πŸ˜€ but that will take a little longer to get here because I had to get someone in England to order it for me and then they’re going to send it to me! πŸ™‚

      • Beth (Reading Every Night) says:

        Trust me you’ll need the second book by the time you finish the first, and then you’ll need the third book by the time you finish the second as well. This is an addictive series!
        Hopefully The Mime Order will arrive tomorrow, and ohh the Collectors Edition of The Song Rising will be worth the wait. It’s great you managed to find a copy of that still! πŸ˜€

      • lry93 says:

        Well, Amazon has dispatched it, so I am more hopeful of it arriving tomorrow now! And it was not easy to find – let me tell you! I had to get someone in England to order it for me and they are going to send it to me when it arrives – I was told earlier that it was dispatched, so, hopefully I should be getting it soon πŸ˜€

      • Beth (Reading Every Night) says:

        Oh that’s good news at least! πŸ™‚ And yeah I can imagine that. I didn’t think they had any more of the Collectors Editions left available so you did well just managing to find that! πŸ˜€

      • lry93 says:

        I am so glad I managed to find one because the other one wouldn’tve matched the set that I have!! And books have to be matching πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
