As always, I would love to read 4 books this month! Coming off of my reading high of last month, I am more determined than ever to meet my goal! Here’s whats on my list:

38490718

I know, not the best cover. I was sent this by the publisher to review. I am actually CR this one and I surprisingly like it!

goodreads-badge-add-plus-71eae69ca0307d077df66a58ec068898

Synopsis:

“A brilliant Medical school graduate Aliya, a sporty and active girl, dies suddenly in a car crash… only to find herself reborn in a completely different body, in the middle of a dilapidated castle during Medieval times. While confused and dismayed, Aliya realizes she has been given another chance at life — so she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work on restoring her new castle and her new life.

Aliya has an unusual and difficult goal: reborn as Countess Lilian; she must learn to adjust to an unfamiliar world while trying to introduce the daily conveniences from her familiar modern world. She needs to take care of the collapsing estate of Irton and its inhabitants while living in the past as a disenfranchised woman. Regular robbers and slave-holders attacks won’t let her live in peace, killers and spies are just waiting for her to show a bit of weakness so that they can strike. On the horizon, there is a prospect of meeting with her perpetually absent husband, whom by the way, after her rebirth as Countess Lilian, Aliya has never even seen.

“First Lessons” is the opening book of the series “Medieval Tale” by Lina J. Potter. The heroine finds herself only at the beginning of a thorny path to progress and happiness. She makes her first steps, building a defense for herself, her new friends, and her rapidly developing business empire — and this is no piece of cake for sure. Despite everything, she has to still go up against the unprogressive and sexist society of the Medieval Ages, with only her knowledge, science, experience, and strong will on her side. Still, Lilian has to act carefully in order not to draw too much attention to her innovations — she knows she could be praised for her genius, or conversely, accused of witchcraft.

Aliya-turned-Countess Lilian gets acquainted and communicates easily with everyone from noble people, peasants, artisans, notorious pirates, proud traders of the East, and even with members of the royal family… but will she be able to bring peace to her own family?

Her plan is to make the best of her unusual circumstances to make the world better. She is not a girl in trouble, waiting for a prince in shining armor — she strives to achieve everything herself.

Will Lilian forge her own “happy-ever-after?” And if so, at what cost?”

I am on a blog tour for this one at the beginning of October! I am excited to read this space romance!

goodreads-badge-add-plus-71eae69ca0307d077df66a58ec068898

Synopsis:

“In a world where nutrition can be transferred via a pill, and society is split into Eaters and Non-Eaters, seventeen-year-old Princess Vela has a grave dilemma. Her father, the king, is dying, and only a transplant of organs from a healthy Non-Eater boy will save him.

Vela is tasked with choosing a boy fit to die for the king, which is impossible enough. But then Carr, the boy she’s loved all her life, emerges as the best candidate in the Bittersweet Trials. And he’s determined to win, because by doing so, he can save the life of his Non-Eater sister.

Refusing to accept losing the boy she loves, Vela bends the rules and cheats. But when someone begins to sabotage the Trials, Vela must reevaluate her own integrity — and learn the true sacrifice of becoming a ruler.”

I won this one in a giveaway on Instagram a few months back! I think it will be a perfect fall read. I mean, just the cover promises a dark story!

goodreads-badge-add-plus-71eae69ca0307d077df66a58ec068898

Synopsis:

“In the city of Eldra, people are ruled by ancient prophecies. For centuries, the high council has stayed in power by virtue of the prophecies of the elder seers. After the last infallible prophecy came to pass, growing unrest led to murders and an eventual rebellion that raged for more than a decade.

In the present day, Cassa, the orphaned daughter of rebels, is determined to fight back against the high council, which governs Eldra from behind the walls of the citadel. Her only allies are no-nonsense Alys, easygoing Evander, and perpetually underestimated Newt, and Cassa struggles to come to terms with the legacy of rebellion her dead parents have left her — and the fear that she may be inadequate to shoulder the burden. But by the time Cassa and her friends uncover the mystery of the final infallible prophecy, it may be too late to save the city — or themselves.”

This last one I got from a friend. She said it’s highly underrated and a beautiful story.

goodreads-badge-add-plus-71eae69ca0307d077df66a58ec068898

Synopsis:

“From her very first touch of the piano keys, Madilla feels a strange tingle of energy running through her fingers. In defiance of the customs of her people, she connects through the spirit of her music with a wild mountain sparrow that shows her the freedom of wings and an endless blue sky.

Her piano becomes Madilla’s only escape from the violent atrocities of an isolated and forgotten mountain village, poisoned by centuries of military occupation. But her family has no escape. Tormented by lust and hatred, her uncle succumbs to the ways of the soldiers, igniting an even greater evil lurking within his spirit.

Recognising the confusion of her Mama’s unshakable beliefs, Madilla searches for her own truth. What she learns is that the magic she feels through her piano is only the beginning.”

I can’t believe it is August already. I blinked and I missed July! Anyways, as per usual I am determined to read four books this month! I rarely do but it’s always my goal! And I’ve got more ARCs to review this month that I’m super excited about! I hope you are too! 

*Let me say that I finished a book in between writing my Wrap-Up post and my TBR post. The Demon Race by Alexandria Warwick. I will be reviewing that bad boy tomorrow (Fri, Aug. 3)!

First up…. The 48 by Donna Hosie. 33006920

 

I am super excited about this one! I got this ARC from Storygram Tours! (Check them out HERE )And while a review is not required, I would still like to provide one! So, thank you Storygram! This one is about time traveling assassins! It already pretty much only has 5 star reviews. Check it out on Goodreads HERE

 

 

Second…. Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan38469737

I am really loving mixing genres at the moment. Once I’m done with historical fiction, I will jump into Sci-fi! My friend, Mel gave this book a great review and she had an interview with the author on her blog! Milan seems like she’d be awesome to hang out with!

Third… Impostors by Scott Westerfeld     37825397

 

I read the Uglies series years ago. So I am super happy to have traded an ARC for this ARC! I really enjoyed that series and am excited to see where Westerfeld will take it again!

Check it out on Goodreads HERE

 

 

 

Fourth… The Storm Runner by J. C. Cervantes34966353

 

 

I haven’t read a middle grade book in some time and am excited to get into one! This one is a take on Maya mythology! It sounds so interesting!

Check it out on Goodreads HERE

 

 

This month is pretty slow, life wise, for me so I am hoping I can get through all of these! What are you reading this month?

As you can see from my last post, I picked up Mistborn at the end of June. I am hoping to finish this first week of July! It’s so good y’all! I personally think it lives up to the hype! This is my first Sanderson book (Unless you count him finishing The Wheel of Time series) and like any person with no self control, I have already looked up fan-art and started reading about the Cosmere… Whoops. I just jumped in there.

First of all, can we all gawk and drool over this cover? Okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way…. The Forest Queen! I cannot wait to sink my bookish teeth into this one! It is a retelling of Robin Hood with a female! Heck to the yes! Betsy Cornwell is also the same author as Mechanica!

And let us also take a moment to ogle this cover as well. Grim Lovelies is probably one of my most anticiapated reads this year. With a lot of really cool Fantasy elements, I am hoping this will wow me! An animal enchanted into a human, Anouk dreams of living free in Paris! Seriously, this sounds so freaking awesome.

I am really hoping to get to this debut author, Alexandria Warwick, first novel, The Demon Race. It sounds like an amazing horse back riding adventure that anyone would want to go on… if your horse is actually a shadow demon seeping darkness into your soul. I honestly don’t think I have ever read something like this and I cannot wait to see what it has in store!

May 2018 TBR

I am so hoping to read four books this month! Fingers crossed!

(Clicking on the photos leads to Amazon.)

The first book I will be reading is Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I have been dying to read this series for the longest time so I picked it for my bookclub!

Next, I will be reading Starlit by S.K. Levy. She is one of my bookstagram friends and I cannot wait to dive into book two of her series!

 

Then I hope to read Legendary by Stephanie Garber. I have met and gotten a book signed by her and it was amazing! I loved Caraval!

 

And lastly, of course I need to read A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas. I’m actually really nervous about this one because I’ve heard so many mixed reviews.

 

I’d love to know what you’re reading! Happy Adventuring!
