This Week in Books 20.05.2015


Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.


Now: Charlie, Presumed Dead ~ Anne Heltzel // The Testimony of a Hanged Man ~ Ann Granger

Early Days with Charlie, Presumed Dead but I have high hopes for it. I’m still going on my lunch-time read The Testimony of a Hanged Man too. I barely get to read a page a day but I’m plodding along anyway.

Then: Fairest ~ Marissa Meyer

I wasn’t sure about Fairest at first but ended up loving it! My review will be up soon.

Next: ???

I’ve put my TBR books to one side for now as I have lots of June ARCs to get through. Up next will be The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton, or The Almost King by Lucy Saxon

New on the Wishlist

Linking up with Friday Finds hosted by A Daily Rhythm

I added The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett to my wishlist after seeing it on someone’s blog, but I forgot who it was…soz!

The Nightmare Affair is the first in the gripping Arkwell Academy trilogy by Mindee Arnett.

Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare. Literally.

Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker’s house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He’s hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn’t get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder.

New on the Shelf

(Linking up with Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews) and Friday Finds hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

Purchased: All I bought this week was a second-hand copy of one of Scarlett Thomas’ early books that I’ve been looking for for years!


Netgalley: I need to catch up so I didn’t request any this week!

I’m Waiting on…

Reawakened ~ Colleen Houck

I stumbled upon this the other day and thought it sounded like an episode of Buffy or something. As in, awesome! I’ve never read anything by this author before, either.

When seventeen-year-old Lilliana Young enters the Metropolitan Museum of Art one morning during spring break, the last thing she expects to find is a live Egyptian prince with godlike powers, who has been reawakened after a thousand years of mummification.

And she really can’t imagine being chosen to aid him in an epic quest that will lead them across the globe to find his brothers and complete a grand ceremony that will save mankind.

But fate has taken hold of Lily, and she, along with her sun prince, Amon, must travel to the Valley of the Kings, raise his brothers, and stop an evil, shape-shifting god named Seth from taking over the world.

From New York Times bestselling author Colleen Houck comes an epic adventure about two star-crossed teens who must battle mythical forces and ancient curses on a journey with more twists and turns than the Nile itself.
Expected publication: August 25th 2015 by Delacorte Press
