Welcome to my new Wednesday post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.
Now: Rebel Belle ~ Rachel Hawkins
I’m really enjoying this, just struggling to find time to read atm.
Then: Aristotle and Date Discover the Secrets of the Universe ~ Ben Alire Sáenz
LOVED! My review will be up next week. I also finished The Martian by Andy Weir, which I’ll review on Saturday.
Probably What She Left by T.R Richmond. It’s a Netgalley approval and not released until April, but I fancy a dark adult book next.
New on the Shelf
(Linking up with Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews)
Netgalley: I was approved for The Silvered Heart by Catherine Clements, I love the cover so much! Released May 7th.
‘The distant thrum of galloping hooves conjures nothing but doubt and fear these days.’
1648: Civil war is devastating England. The privileged world Katherine Ferrars knows is crumbling under Cromwell’s army, and as an orphaned heiress, she has no choice but to do her duty and marry for the sake of family.
But as her marriage turns into a prison, and her fortune is decimated by the war, Kate becomes increasingly desperate. So when she meets the enigmatic Ralph Chaplin, she seizes the chance he offers. Their plan is daring and brutal, but it’s an escape from poverty and the shackles of convention. They both know if they’re caught, there’s only one way it can end…
Borrowed: I didn’t borrow any books this week.
I’m Waiting on…

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) ~ Marissa Meyer
I know, I know, it’s so far away, but the cover was recently revealed and argggggggghhh WANT! Also 800 pages!!!!???
Here is the stunning conclusion to the national bestselling Lunar Chronicles, inspired by Snow White.
When Princess Winter was thirteen, the rumor around the Lunar court was that her glamour would soon be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana. In a fit of jealousy, Levana disfigured Winter. Four years later, Winter has sworn off the use of her glamour altogether. Despite her scars, Winter’s natural beauty, her grace, and her gentleness are winning admiration from the Lunar people that no amount of mind-control could achieve.
Winter despises her stepmother, but has never dreamed of standing up to her. That is, until she realizes that she may be the only one with the power to confront the queen.
Can Cinder, Prince Kai, Scarlet, Wolf, Cress, Thorne, Princess Winter, and the palace guard Jacin find their happily ever afters? Fans will LOVE this amazing conclusion to the series.
Expected publication: November 10th 2015
