The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

This is the first book in the, now series, The Darkest Minds. I love this series so much and I can’t wait to get to the new 4th book, The Darkest Legacy. There is so much to love about this book including the characters, Ruby, Chubs, Zu & Liam! Chubs is probably my favourite of the main group. The world is also very detailed and vivid. The plot is also hectic & full of twists and turns.

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

This is one of my favourite books of last year! Not only is it super rare to find a good standalone fantasy but this book is also full of diversity. The world of Gomorrah is extremely unique and interesting. The abilities in this book are also really interesting and I would have loved to learn more about them, but I’m not complaining as like it said, standalones are rare!

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

This is the first book in a fantasy duology (also fairly rare). I listened to these books on audiobook & I highly recommend them! The audiobooks are very well done and the narration is really good. As for the book itself, this has a pirate ship full of badass females and this book has pirates & sirens! What more do you want?

Draekora by Lynette Noni

Definitely my favourite book out of this list! Draekora is the 3rd book in The Medora Chronicles series. The Medoran Chronicles is my 2nd favourite series of all time! Only second to Harry Potter. This series is filled with amazing friendships, hectic adventures and a super interesting world! Also, did I mention that it has dragons?!

Dragon on Trial by Tui T. Sutherland

More dragons! This is the 2nd book in a fun middle-grade series, Menagerie. Like I said, this book is really fun and entertaining. The first book starts off when a young boy wakes up to a Griffin cub hiding under his bed. This book is full of amazing and interesting magical creatures! If you’re looking for a fun, easy and entertaining read, then I highly recommend this series!

Argh, I’m hopeless at remembering to post these! This is the one that should have gone up on Saturday!

So this week I will be doing the letter C. I will not be including the word ‘The’ as the first word.

I don’t have as many books for C that I love as I have for A & B.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

This is the first book in The Lunar Chronicles. While there are a couple things in this series that I don’t love, for the most part, I did really enjoy them. They are fun and action-packed. Also, the world is very well developed and vivid.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

This is the amazing sequel to Six of Crows! These books are intense, action-packed and very enjoyable to read. The characters are very well developed and so is the world. Though I do recommend reading at least the first book in the Grisha Trilogy before starting Six of Crows as the magic system isn’t explained in Six of Crows at all, so that could be found confusing. I personally read in this order Shadow & Bone, Six of Crows, Siege and Storm, Ruin and Rising & Crooked Kingdom.

Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire

This is the 3rd book in the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire. I can’t talk about this one too much as it’s the 3rd book but this series is just so interesting and book 3 is my favourite. The Wayward Children Series is about children that return to the real world after travelling into a portal fantasy world (e.g. Alice In Wonderland & Narnia). These are companion books, so I will briefly talk about how they are related. Firstly, book 1, Every Heart A Doorway is set in the real world at a ‘school’ for the children that return to the real world after going to their portal world. This book is more of a murder mystery than anything else. Book 2, Down Among the Sticks and Bones follows two characters from Book 1 and it takes place before Book 1 while these characters were in their world. Book 3 follows the daughter of a character from Book 1. I loved Book 3 the most because it was more adventurous and we get to experience more than just the one world or the real world.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I love World War II Historical Fiction books and this is no exception. I love how unique this book is. Firstly it is narrated by death, which makes for a really unique reading experience. Also that we follow a young girl makes for an interesting experience too as most World War II books I’ve read are from people in there late teens or adults. This book is upsetting and powerful and I loved it. I really need to reread this one!

Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Young Adult Fantasy with Dragons? Yes, please! This book does not have a tonne of plot so it feels more character driven. The world is really interesting and this book really builds up for book 2 and I can’t wait for book 2 which I have already pre-ordered!

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

This is book 3 in The Raven Cycle series but I don’t think I really need to explain this series. I love this whole series! I don’t really know which book is my favourite out of this series as I love them all but Blue Lily, Lily Blue would be one of the top ones I think.

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

This is an interesting dystopian book. The only thing I don’t like in this book was the romance, I enjoyed the main character and the plot and world are really interesting! It’s been a while since I read this and I want to reread it as I know I really enjoyed it but I can’t remember enough of it. So I am hoping to reread this book and book 2, The Mime Order and then I can finally continue onto The Song Rising. However, I don’t want to just yet as there are still 4 books to come out in this series, the next one is set to release next year and the last book, book 7 in 2021.

Beyond the Night by Alexandra Bracken

This is a novella in The Darkest Minds series. This one comes between In the Afterlight & The Darkest Legacy. I really enjoyed this little extra info and this one builds on what we find out in the novella Sparks Rise which comes between Never Fade & In the Afterlight. I really enjoyed this series so I love this extra little bit we get!

A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers
This is the second book in the Wayfarer’s series! Which is one of my new favourite series! This is an Adult Sci-Fi series and the books are all companion novels. The books are very character driven and have a very interesting and diverse cast of characters. There are tonnes of unique ‘alien’ species to meet in this book and the world is extremely vivid! I absolutely love this series and A Closed and Common Orbit is my second fave in the series.

Armada by Ernest Cline
Armada is another Sci-Fi book but this one is YA. Armada is a heavily video game based book and it was just so interesting, I loved the characters, the world and the action of this book! Highly recommend if you like Ernest Cline’s other series, Ready Player One.

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
This one is a new favourite having only read it last month. I read Daughter of the Burning City, Amanda Foody’s debut and LOVED it. So as soon as this was announced I was extremely excited! I was not disappointed! This book has an interesting world with amazing characters and tonnes of twists and turns! Can’t wait for book 2.

A Tale of Two Murders by Heather Redmond
Another new favourite, this one I read this month. This is a historical murder mystery loosely based on A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. In this book, we also have a young Charles Dickens as the main character. He is working as a journalist at a local paper when a weird death occurs and he doesn’t believe it to be natural causes and sets out to solve the crime. This is a really good Murder Mystery, I literally had no idea who the murderer was until Dickens unveiled them.

Akarnae by Lynette Noni
This book!! This was the book that started my love for my number 2 favourite series of all time! The Medoran Chronicles is only second to Harry Potter on my top 4 favourites series ever! This world, these characters, the friendship, the plot, everything about this book is amazing and I love it.

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
This book started my love for reading Murder Mysteries. I have watched many TV Shows and movies that are adapted from Agatha Christies book but this was the first one I read and I loved it! So I just kept reading Agatha Christie books!

May 2018 Haul

Header Image (8)

I got quite a few books this month. Which is ridiculous really considering I’m broke as hell. But oh well it happened. As always I also have a heap of audiobooks in the haul but I don’t pay for them individually. On Scribd, I just pay a small amount a month and have unlimited access to their library. I seriously should be paid for this crap, I am always recommending Scribd haha. Let’s get into it!
