Most girls buy clothes or shoes, but I stress buy books. Oops! When I found out that I couldn’t go to Texas like I had wanted this year I kinda went a little crazy on my book buying. Yay for more books, but my already stretched budget is hating me with a passion right now.
1) Reign of the Fallen by: Sarah Glenn Marsh
Necromancers and zombie like creatures called Shades. This book sounds like it is going to be very interesting to say the least! Not to mention that the cover is also incredibly beautiful!
2) Shadow and Bone by: Leigh Bardugo
Yes I already own this book, but they came out with new gorgeous covers! I couldn’t not get at least one. Eventually I’ll get the other two, but for now this beauty will grace my Leigh Bardugo shelf.
3) Gunslinger Girl by: Lyndsay Ely
I had the opportunity to meet Lyndsay last year at Bookcon and get an ARC of this book signed by her. While I have yet to actually read this book, I cannot wait to dive into it soon.
4) Everless by: Sarah Holland
I read an ARC of this book back in early January and absolutely loved it. When I had a little extra cash I just had to get a hard cover copy of this book.
5) Wires and Nerve: Gone Rogue by: Marissa Meyer
I absolutely loved the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa so I just had to have the companion series as well. I do own the first book, and again I still have to read it. But at least I have the second book as well. 🙂
6+7) The Hazel Wood by: Melissa Albert
This is another book that I read an ARC of back in January, but I totally did not plan on getting two copies of this book. The green copy came in my February Owlcrate and the blue and black one came in my February Fairyloot box. Both are incredibly unique and look beautiful sitting on my shelf.
8) The Queen’s Rising by: Rebecca Ross
I don’t know much about this book as I received it in my February Bookish Box. I don’t think I want to look up the synopsis and just go into this book blind.
9) Piper by: Jay Asher, Jessica Freeburg
I’ve seen a few people talk about this book recently and I’ve really been in the mood for a quick comic-type read so I picked it up. I’ve heard many different versions of the Pied Piper and I cannot wait to read this one!
10) Shatter by: Aprilynne Pike
I bought the first book in this series about a year ago just because it takes place in a futuristic version of Versailles where they still wear 18th century style attire. But there is a drug called Glitter that is lurking in the halls of the palace and Danica’s only way out. For that last year or so I have been intrigued with historical fiction novels or ones that have historical elements. This is a series that I need to sink my teeth into soon!!
11) Batman: Nightwalker by: Marie Lu
While I do have an ARC of this book, I found a signed copy at my local Barnes & Noble and I just had to snatch it up. I’m really loving all of these DC Heroes books. I can’t wait for the next few to come out as well!
12) The Empress by: S.J. Kincaid
I recently heard someone talk about this book and I rushed out to buy this book. This is yet again the second book in a series that I have not read the first book. Hopefully I can get to this series this year. It sounds like and incredible action packed sci-fi.
13) The Edge of Everything by: Jeff Giles
I don’t know much about this book other than it has to do with bounty hunters. I found this book at my local Barnes & Noble for about $5. I couldn’t pass up a deal like that on a brand new hardcover.
14) Lair of Dreams by: Libba Bray
This is another book that I got for about $5 at Barnes & Noble. I have the first book in this series, and now I just need to get the last book and I’ll have the whole series. I am a little bummed that all of the books have different covers as the first one was gorgeous.
15) Contagion by: Erin Bowman
AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!! This is my most anticipated book of the year and it is in my hands!!! Ever since I read Vengeance Road and Retribution Rails by Erin I have been craving her next book. When I saw that ARCs of this book were out in the wild I just knew I had to get my hands on a copy. Through some amazing people and trades on Twitter I finally have a copy!! I need to read this book soon! I’m very interested to see how her writing style shifts from Westerns to sci-fi.
16) The Way the Light Bends by: Cordelia Jensen
Earlier on in the year I took a blogger survey and saw this book and added it to my Goodreads. I didn’t think of it much after that day until I got an email from Penguin Teen asking if I wanted to review this book. I totally jumped on the chance. I cannot wait to review it for y’all!
17) Taken by: Erin Bowman
So stupid me didn’t realize that Erin had written some other books until about a month or so ago. Now knowing this I just had to get them! Yay for more Erin Bowman books!
18) Frozen by: Erin Bowman
This is the second book in the Taken series. I still have yet to get the third one, but at least I have the first two to hold me over for a while.
Wow that was a lot of books! And there are so many that I really can’t wait to get into! Okay, I’m going back to reading now!!
