Telling Tales | The ‘I WILL get back into reading’ Haul

So, in a weak attempt at getting back into my reading, I took myself book shopping. Well, that’s the excuse I’m going with for buying so many books anyway…

Slated Trilogy: 3 Book Collection | Teri Terry

Goodreads Rating: 4.07
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Dystopia, Romance, Fantasy, Fiction
Summary: Kyla’s memory has been erased,
her personality wiped blank,
her memories lost for ever.
She’s been Slated.
The government claims she was a terrorist and that they are giving her a second chance – as long as she plays by their rules. But echoes of the past whisper in Kyla’s mind. Someone is lying to her, and nothing is as it seems. Who can she trust in her search for the truth?

Days of Blood & Starlight | Laini Taylor

Series: Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Goodreads Rating: 4.12
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Paranormal, Fiction
Summary: Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living – one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers’ arms to take their turn in the killing and dying.
Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon’s secret temple and dreamed of a world that was like a jewel-box without a jewel – a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness.

This was not that world.

Dreams of Gods & Monsters | Laini Taylor

Series: Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Goodreads Rating: 4.10
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Paranormal, Fiction
Summary: By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can even be a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz.

The Hawthorne Legacy | Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Series: The Inheritance Games
Goodreads Rating: 4.26
Genre: Mystery, Young Adult, Contemporary, Thriller
Summary: The Inheritance Games ended with a bombshell, and now heiress Avery Grambs has to pick up the pieces and find the man who might hold the answers to all of her questions – including why Tobias Hawthorne left his entire fortune to Avery, a virtual stranger, rather than to his own daughters or grandsons.
As the mystery grows and the plot thickens, Grayson and Jameson, the enigmatic and magnetic Hawthorne grandsons, continue to pull Avery in different directions. And there are threats lurking around every corner, as adversaries emerge who will stop at nothing to see Avery out of the picture – by any means necessary.

All These Bodies | Kendare Blake

Goodreads Rating: 3.47
Genre: Young Adult, Horror, Mystery, Thriller, Paranormal
Summary: Summer 1958. A gruesome killer plagues the Midwest, leaving behind a trail of bodies completely drained of blood.
Michael Jensen, an aspiring journalist whose father happens to be the town sheriff, never imagined that the Bloodless Murders would come to his backyard. Not until the night the Carlson family was found murdered in their home. Marie Catherine Hale, a diminutive fifteen-year-old, was discovered at the scene—covered in blood. She is the sole suspect in custody.
Michael didn’t think that he would be part of the investigation, but he is pulled in when Marie decides that he is the only one she will confess to. As Marie recounts her version of the story, it falls to Michael to find the truth: What really happened the night that the Carlsons were killed? And how did one girl wind up in the middle of all these bodies?

Hitorijime My Hero, vol.1 | Memeco Arii

Goodreads Rating: 3.85
Genre: Sequential Art, Manga, Romance, LGBT
Summary: Masahiro Setagawa doesn’t believe in heroes, but wishes he could: He’s found himself trapped in a gang of small-time street bullies, and with no prospects for a real future. But when high school teacher (and scourge of the streets) Kousuke Ohshiba comes to his rescue, he finds he may start believing after all…in heroes, and in his budding feelings, too.

  1. Great haul! I found the Laini Taylor series to be reaaaaally long and it nearly put me in a reading slump so be wary of that one! I thought Slated was really good though, and I sped through Hawthorne Legacy.
