About So Many Books, So Little Time

Hey! I'm Ana, I've been reading since I read my first Harry Potter Book about 9 years ago, which was Book 6, The Half-Blood Prince, I had seen all the movies up til that point but I just really wanted to read it before the movie came out. And reading The Half-Blood Prince really got me into Books, Thank you, J.K Rowlings for inspiring me and writing an amazing series like Harry Potter. Honestly, If it wasn't for reading that HP book, I probably wouldn't love reading as much as I do today. I got into blogging about 6 years ago, and I love it! I love sharing my thoughts on books, just as much as I love reading them, and I love learning things from the books I read. Hey, if you have any books that you think I might like please recommend them! All recommendations are happily welcome and appreciated!

Dragon Equinox by Ophelia Bell

(Immortal Dragons, #6)

Publication date: May 15th 2018

Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

With an all-out war waging in the Haven over control of the Source, immortal dragon Numa only cares about one thing: securing a powerful enough partner for a taxing ritual that will turn the tide of the war.

But Fate hasn’t made her task easy. Rather than show her who her fated mates are to be, the infuriating eternal entity she calls a father has made Numa the prize in a contest of the gods. Whoever wins the favor of Fate’s last unmated daughter shall have her as a mate. Numa sees this as an opportunity to secure a partner strong enough to complete the ritual, but isn’t prepared when all the contestants unexpectedly capture her heart.

Love should not be a factor when her entire world is at risk, so Numa knows she must choose between them. What does an immortal dragon do when given an impossible choice? She takes them all.

Letting Go of Gravity by Meg Leder

Hardcover, 432 pages

Genre: YA, Contemporary

Expected publication: July 17th 2018 by Simon Pulse

~Synopsis~

Twins Parker and Charlie are polar opposites.

Where Charlie is fearless, Parker is careful.

Charlie is confident while Parker aims to please.

Charlie is outgoing and outspoken; Parker is introverted and reserved.

And of course, there’s the one other major difference: Charlie got leukemia. Parker didn’t.

But now that Charlie is officially in remission, life couldn’t be going better for Parker. She’s landed a prestigious summer internship at the hospital and is headed to Harvard in the fall to study pediatric oncology—which is why the anxiety she’s felt since her Harvard acceptance is so unsettling. And it doesn’t help that her relationship with Charlie has been on the rocks since his diagnosis.

Enter Finn, a boy who’s been leaving strange graffiti messages all over town. Parker can’t stop thinking about those messages, or about Finn, who makes her feel free for the first time: free to doubt, free to make mistakes, and free to confront the truth that Parker has been hiding from for a long time.

That she keeps trying to save Charlie, when the person who really needs saving is herself.

She will scour the four kingdoms, find her mother’s murderer, and enact the Hunters’ Creed: heart for a heart, life for a life.

But when Mia is thrust into the last role she ever wanted—promised wife to the future king—she plots a daring escape. On her wedding night, Mia discovers something she never imagined: She may be a Huntress, but she’s also a Gwyrach. As the truth comes to light, Mia must untangle the secrets of her own past. Now if she wants to survive, Mia must learn to trust her heart . . . even if it kills her.

{Review} The Outcasts – The Blood Dagger: Vol 1 by Misty Hayes


37540129The Outcasts – The Blood Dagger: Vol 1 by Misty Hayes

Kindle Edition, 283 pages

Published December 15th 2017 (first published December 5th 2017)

Goodreads

~Rating: 4/5 stars~

Mystical relics.
Powerful vampires.
Strange allies.

It’s hell being a teenager.

Larna Collins has never understood why her dad skipped out on her and her mother when she was twelve years old. Until then, he was a devoted and loving father.

But six years later, during a renovation of her childhood home, she unearths her father’s journal from under a dusty floorboard. According to his final entry before he left, he had recently visited a small parish in England.

The entries draw her to this seemingly quaint village, which Larna discovers isn’t as charming as its blood-craving inhabitants want her to believe, and she learns that she isn’t the only one trying to track her father down.

Could this explain her father’s disappearance? Or was placing her in the center of danger her dad’s master plan all along?

~Review~

*a copy was provided by the author*

Not what I expected! I’m actually really surprised with this one! This is the first Misty Hayes book that I have read.  I loved it. I am looking forward to the next book.

Larna Collins is on a search for her father, who went disappeared when she was just twelve years old.  Her search brings her to Bromham, London.  Larna quickly learns that there is more to her father’s disappearance than she thought.

The book is action packed to the brim leaving you on edge the whole time. It’s one of those books that you can never get bored of because there’s always something happening that’s relevant to the story, and with all the secrets you’ll find throughout the chapters it keeps you hooked until the very last one.

The Outcasts holds a huge twist that I don’t want to spoil, but it’s full of secrets, betrayal, action, and love. I really like Larna’s character and feel terrible for the bullying she’s suffered from. I highly recommend it!

Merciless by Willow Winters

Expected publication: May 15th 2018

~Synopsis~

From Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters, comes a sexy new standalone!

There are a lot of things a man like me shouldn’t do.

A ruthless man with a past to hide doesn’t let a soul close to him.
A cold hearted man at war doesn’t risk anything for anyone.
A depraved man with the perfect woman at his mercy … he doesn’t fall for her.

She was only a bargaining chip. Now my property.I own her.
Nothing has thrilled me more than the thought of taking her how I’ve always wanted to.
To break her and make that soft voice of hers whimper with a strangled moan as I ravage her.

I know better than to give in to temptation and let her distract me from everything that’s at stake.

No matter how badly I crave more of her.
No matter how much the depraved thoughts plague me.
No matter if it’s the one thing that I’ve always wanted more than anything else…

Genres: Mystery, New Adult, Romance ~

~Rating: 4/5 Stars~

Abandoned at birth, Sophie Shields grew up in abusive foster homes, escaping into books and computers for solace. When the constant danger became too much to bear, she ran away, thinking she could survive on her hacking skills alone.

That was until she met Cole Hunter. He became the only person she could trust: her family, her friend, her partner-in-crime. Her everything. After struggling through college and starting their lives together, she believed that nothing could ever tear them apart.

Until it did.

And she’ll do everything in her power to fix what is broken. If it isn’t too late…

When Cole was nine years old, he watched his whole family burn to death in a house fire. Fueled by years of obsession, he started one of the world’s leading architectural firms, with a mission to design homes resistant to fire, earthquakes, floods, and every threat known to man.

Sophie was his secret weapon. She was his purpose. Since they were teenagers, he was determined to build a better life for her, so she could finally be safe, and they could be together.

But disaster has always followed Cole around, ripping away everything he loves. This time, if he isn’t careful…

His enemies might just take him down.

~Review~

The Fireproof Girl is the story of Sophie Shield and Cole Hunter. Sophie, is a CIA agent and an excellent code breaker, who lives in Washington DC with her boyfriend Zachary. One day she reads in the newspaper that, Cole, another homeless child, adopted by same foster parents as hers, who she has not met in years, is dead. She decides go back to California where, Cole lived to find out who his murderer is. Through Sophie’s perspective we get to see her on a journey of searching for clues surrounding Cole’s death and who shot him. I really liked the dual perspectives between Sophie and Cole. Sophie’s side of the story was told in present day (2016) while Cole’s side dealt with their past (2003) and how it’s has contributed to their present. Both were broken children who grew up to be broken adults. In the beginning you know that Sophie has a problem with commitment and you slowly find out why. I felt the author did a pretty good job of weaving the backstory for both Sophie/Scarlett and Cole. 

The story was compelling, interesting, disturbing, intense and I loved it. The plot was interesting it was full of twists. You don’t really know what is going on. The story will keep you guessing. It’s really fun to follow Sophie through the past and present with unexpected events unfolding.

If you like mystery, suspense and a bit of romance. This is the book for you. I don’t usually read mystery type books, but I’m can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the series.  I highly recommend it.
