Hi everyone! It's Saturday so that means I'm going to be writing about the books I got this week. Only I have to cover two weeks, which means I'd better get started.
I got a bunch of good books in the past two weeks, four of which I'm in love with. My break has started, which means more time to read and more posts. Plus, there's the Christmas cookies I mentioned two weeks ago. And the numerous glasses of white hot chocolate to drink, which I'm obsessed with.
These are the books I saw at the library and nearly screamed in excitement:
The Diviners by Libba Bray: I've heard fantastic things about this book. It's a supernatural read about ghosts and includes a mystery. I'm really excited about the setting because it takes place in the 1920s in New York.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: I read the Scorpio Races by Stiefvater a few months ago and was astounded by both the writing and the plot. The Raven Boys, albeit different from the Scorpio Races, was just as good. It was a paranormal with witches and a mystery. Read my review here.
Carnival of Souls by Marrisa Marr: I'm a big fan of Melissa Marr, so when I saw this book I grabbed it. It's a unique fantasy with several povs. Find my review here.
These are books I found that intrigued me:
Die For Me by Amy Plum: I already read and reviewed this book. I found it to be alright. It's a supernatural read that takes place in Paris. Read my review here.
Until I Die by Amy Plum: This is the second book in the Die For Me series. I just started reading it and I like it so far.
Halo by Alexandra Adornetto: This is a paranormal book about angels (see the cover). What captivated me the most about it was that the girl was the angel, for once. I hope it's good.
Spirit's Princess by Esther M. Friesner: This is a book with a setting that takes place in the 2nd/3rd century. It's about a pampered daughter of a chieftain who decides she's just as good as any boy. This leads to her going on various adventures. I can't wait to read it!
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor: I heard so many good things about this book that I couldn't resist. It's a fantasy novel about an otherworldly war. I'm so glad I got it! Read my review here to see why.
The Education of Hailey Kendrick by Eileen Cook: I couldn't forget to get a contemporary read. This book has an interesting premise. It appears to be about secrets and mysteries and friendships. I like the sound of it.
I can't wait to read all of these books and share my reviews with you. Remember to comment with the books you got or link up you Stacking the Shelves, so I can check it out.
