Hey guys! Hope you’re all well. I have become obsessed with K Dramas – which means I have done absolutely NO reading! I should really get back on it… XD

Anyway.this weeks pick for me is a sequel. I really enjoyed the first book and I have been meaning to pick up a copy of the sequel for a while now… and I just haven’t #bookishproblems

Siege of Shadows by Sarah Raughley 

Published: November 21st 2017 by Simon Pulse 

There’s nowhere to hide.

Not when you’re an Effigy. No matter where they go, Maia and the other Effigies can’t escape the eyes of the press—especially not after failing to capture Saul, whose power to control the monstrous Phantoms has left the world in a state of panic. It’s been two months since Saul’s disappearance, and there’s still no sign of him, leaving the public to wonder whether the Sect—and the Effigies—are capable of protecting anyone.

When Saul suddenly surfaces in the middle of the Sahara desert, the Sect sends Maia and her friends out after him. But instead of Saul, they discover a dying soldier engineered with Effigy-like abilities. Even worse, there may be more soldiers like him out there, and it looks like the Effigies are their prime targets.

Yet the looming danger of Saul and this mysterious new army doesn’t overshadow Maia’s fear of the Sect, who ordered the death of the previous Fire Effigy, Natalya. With enemies on all sides and the world turning against them, the Effigies have to put their trust in each other—easier said than done when secrets threaten to tear them apart.

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend. I was down with the flu most of last week, so I am so glad that I am finally feeling a little better! I started watching K Dramas in that time and it’s a new guilty pleasure 🙂

Anyway, this weeks pick for me is a book that was released a few years ago, but I recently added it to my TBR after discovering a different book of hers!

Truly, Madly, Deadly by Hannah Jayne

Published: July 2nd 2013 by Sourcebooks Fire

They said it was an accident…

Sawyer Dodd is a star athlete, a straight-A student, and the envy of every other girl who wants to date Kevin Anderson. When Kevin dies in a tragic car crash, Sawyer is stunned. Then she opens her locker to find a note:

You’re welcome.

Someone saw what he did to her. Someone knows that Sawyer and Kevin weren’t the perfect couple they seemed to be. And that someone—a killer—is now shadowing Sawyer’s every move…

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

Published: March 6th 2018 by Simon Pulse

Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…

Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.

Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.

Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.

Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.

But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.

What books do you have on your TBR?

Anyway, I come to you with a cover reveal this week of a book that I am looking forward to picking up! The cover is absolutely beautiful as well! I will note, there was a short synopsis available for people who signed up to do the cover reveal, but I’m not sure if it’s the final synopsis or not, so I won’t be sharing it!

Anyway, this weeks pick for me is a book I discovered recently and one I am excited to pick up.

Violent Ends by Shaun David Hutchinson

Published: September 1st 2015 by Simon Pulse

In a one-of-a-kind collaboration, seventeen of the most recognizable YA writers—including Shaun David Hutchinson, Neal and Brendan Shusterman, and Beth Revis—come together to share the viewpoints of a group of students affected by a school shooting.

It took only twenty-two minutes for Kirby Matheson to exit his car, march onto the school grounds, enter the gymnasium, and open fire, killing six and injuring five others.

But this isn’t a story about the shooting itself. This isn’t about recounting that one unforgettable day.

This is about one boy—who had friends, enjoyed reading, playing saxophone in the band, and had never been in trouble before—became a monster capable of entering his school with a loaded gun and firing bullets at his classmates.

Each chapter is told from a different victim’s viewpoint, giving insight into who Kirby was and who he’d become. Some are sweet, some are dark; some are seemingly unrelated, about fights or first kisses or late-night parties. This is a book told from multiple perspectives—with one character and one event drawing them all together—by some of YA’s most recognizable names.

Expected Publication: August 7th 2018 by Entangled Teen

They wake on a deserted island. Fiona and Miles, high school enemies now stranded together. No memory of how they got there. No plan to follow, no hope to hold on to.

Each step forward reveals the mystery behind the forces that brought them here. And soon, the most startling discovery: something else is on the island with them.

Something that won’t let them leave alive.

Echoes is a thrilling adventure about confronting the impossible, discovering love in the most unexpected places, and, above all, finding hope in the face of the unknown.

Spies Lies and Allies_500.jpg

Spies, Lies and Allies by Lisa Brown Roberts

Expected Publication: May 1st 2018 by Entangled Teen

Summers are supposed to be fun, right? Not mine. I’ve got a job at my dad’s company, which is sponsoring a college scholarship competition. I just found out that, in addition to my job assisting the competing interns, I’m supposed to vote for the winner. Totally not what I signed up for.
There’s a crazy guy running the competition like it’s an episode of Survivor. Then there’s Carlos, who is, well, very distracting –– in a good way. But I can’t even think about him that way because Crazy Guy says any fraternizing on the job means instant disqualification for the intern involved.
As if that’s not enough, an anonymous weirdo with insider intel is trying to sabotage my dad’s company on social media…and I’m afraid it’s working.
Much as I’d love to quit, I can’t. Kristoffs Never Quit is our family motto. I just hope there’s more than one survivor by the end of this summer.

Cover Reveal: Circle of Ashes by Elise Kova and Lynn Larsh

Hey everyone! I hope you are all having a good week so far. It is mid week, so not too long to go before the weekend is here; and I have something that will help that along the way! I come bearing gifts – The cover reveal and synopsis of Circle of Ashes by Elise Kova and Lynn Larsh (Book 2 of the Wish Quartet).

COA.jpg

Circle of Ashes by Elise Kova and Lynn Larsh

Expected Publication: April 9th 2018 by Silver Wing Press

EVERY WISH HAS A COST BUT WILL THE SOCIETY BE WILLING TO PAY IT?

Once a hacker-for-hire living in the shadows, Josephina “Jo” Espinosa is the newest member of a magical Society. Their mandate? To grant the wishes of mortals. A simple enough task until Jo is faced with an impossible wish – and her inability to grant it might spell disaster for her entire team, if not the Society itself.

Jo is used to high-pressure situations, but after a string of disasters, the last thing she needs is stakes of this magnitude. Especially given that neither she nor the Society know quite what the consequences of failing to grant a wish might be.

The only person with answers is the Society’s aloof and cryptic leader, Snow. Yet while Jo is enigmatically drawn to the man, all their clandestine encounters leave her with only more questions about the true nature of the Society, her magic, and her own history.

Time is running out for the Society, and an executioner will rise from among them to exact the price of failure.

Doesn’t this sound amazing? I absolutely LOVED book 1 (find my review here), and I am extremely excited for this! Circle of Ashes will be available for KU users (as is Society of Wishers) , so if you subscribe – get on that! If you do’t subscribe, can find pre order links for Circle of Ashes here: AMAZON

You can also grab a copy of Society of Wishes here: AMAZON

Elise and Lynn will also be hosting a Society of Wishes read along via facebook! This will have giveaways (Worth mentioning here that the only way to get swag for these books is through giveaways!), exclusive content, discussions with the authors etc. You can join in the fun by clicking on the photo below (it will redirect you to the FB event).

Fairytales Fairyloot Unboxing

Hey guys! I hope you are all doing well. I received my February Fairyloot earlier on in the week – so obviously I need to do an unboxing! I am absolutely in love with the items in this box and the book itself is a highly anticipated read of mine! There will be spoilers because this is an unboxing, so if you haven’t received your box yet, or you don’t want to know what is in the Feb Fairyloot box just yet, do not continue!

_DSC4199.jpg

As mentioned above, this months theme was Fairytales. I absolutely love fairytales – both the originals and retellings, so I jumped on the chance to get this box! I love the artwork on the spoiler cards, and I really need to find a creative way to display them! I will also leave links to all the shops etc. so that you can check them out for yourself!

The first item in the box is an exclusive Grimm Tales mug designed by Aunjuli Art. The mug is designed in a way that it shows off various different fairytales all the way around and I am in love with the detail! I’m not even sure I’ll be using this to drink from, but rather as decoration for my shelf!

The next item in the box is an exclusive Hinterland candle designed by Wick and Fable, which was inspired by the book of the month. The scent is Oakmoss and Tealeaves and, even without lighting it, the scent throw is amazing. In the time it took me to take the couple of photo’s for this unboxing, my entire living room had the earthy, foresty scent of this candle.

_DSC4205.jpg

The next item in the box was exclusive poisonous apple bath salts (disclaimer: not actually poisonous :-P) from Little Heart, inspired by Snow White. I’m a little bummed because I don’t actually have. bath in my home, just a shower, so I can’t try these out… having said that, I am not really a bath person anyway! I do love the vibrant colour of these and I will probably keep them anyway! It’s also worth mentioning that these are Vegan! The artwork was designed by Till and Dill.

_DSC4210.jpg

Another item in the box was these exclusive The Witch and the Gingerbread House socks from Fairyloot themselves. They are obviously inspired by Hansel and Gretel and have witch hats and gingerbread houses on them! Again, I am not a huge sock person, and really only wear socks for when I wear shoes (I go pretty much barefoot all the time otherwise), but I am definitely looking forward to using these for photos etc.

_DSC4212.jpg

The Final item in the box before the book was this exclusive Little Red Riding Hood woodmark, created by Ink and Wonder. I love the detail included and I cannot wait to use it for my next book!

The book for this month is The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert. It is an exclusive edition and was signed, as opposed to coming with a signed book plate! As mentioned above, this book is a highly anticipated release for me and I am so looking forward to cracking this one open! I love the exclusive cover and it also came with a letter from the author.

_DSC4219.jpg

That is is for this months box! I am in love with all of the items, despite the fact that I can’t use the bath salts (thinking a trip to my brothers house would not go amiss here), and I cannot wait to dive into the book! I am so glad that I jumped on the chance to get this box and I loved the representation of various different fairytales!
