Mary: Unleashed by Hillary Monahan

I really enjoyed the first book and this one is super short so I’m really excited to have it. I love YA horror books especially when they are this creepy!


The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

I wasn’t too sure about this one but I love YA Fantasy and I did love “My Lady Jane” which Jodi Meadows co-wrote, so I want to give it a shot. Plus Book Outlet is super cheap!


House of Furies by Madeleine Roux

Another YA Horror book I got cheap from Book Outlet!


Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer

This one is a Sleeping Beauty retelling but it hasn’t gotten the best reviews, but I’m hoping I’ll still enjoy it.


The Freemason’s Daughter by Shelley Sackier

A historical fiction set in Scotland, I absolutely adore Scotland settings so I’m excited to read this one.


Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore

I’m not exactly sure what this book is actually about but it seems like it might be interesting…


I am Princess X by Cherie Priest

I get a very good “geek girl” vibe from this book and it’s got some of the fictional web comics throughout it as well. It seems fun!


The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

A book about rape culture and also a mystery/thriller, it sounds fantastic.


Warcross by Marie Lu

Super hyped book with a gorgeous cover, I used a giftcard from Christmas to buy a signed copy. I love video games so I’m excited to read this one and see what all the hype is about.


A Map For Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor

The cover is super vibrantly colored and it seems like an okay story, I got it for 60% off since my local bookstore is going out of business.


Golden Son by Pierce Brown

My boyfriend got this for me for Christmas so I am SUPER pumped to continue this series because it’s freaking amazing!


The Heart Forger by Rin Chupeco

I received this ARC for review and I loooooved “The Bone Witch” so definitely looking forward to reading the sequel!


Furyborn by Claire Legrand

Another ARC I received for review and it sounds fantastic with assassins and Sun Queens and Blood Queens. Hopefully it’s as amazing as it sounds.


Roar by Cora Carmack

A YA Fantasy with characters who can control storms, it sounds so badass and so I got a copy from Book Outlet.


Beautiful Broken Girls by Kim Savage

I was sent this copy from Kim Savage herself, she’s amazing and I’m super grateful and very excited to read it!


The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Maxwell’s other book “Unhooked” but everyone seemed to really love this one and I adore the cover so I wanted to give it a shot.


The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

The other book my boyfriend got my for Christmas, I was super excited since it’s the 10th anniversary edition and it is absolutely gorgeous!

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

A “geeky” retelling of Cinderella, I think it sounds like it’s worth reading because I love retellings and books with geek culture!


Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

I usually don’t go for YA contemporaries or romances but this one sounds adorable and everyone seems to love it, it’s also about a girl who writes web comics so it comes with a side of geeky which I always love.


The Seventh Bride by T. Kingfisher

A Bluebeard retelling and it’s also super short, I figured it’d be worth a read since I love retellings.


The Butterfly Garden by Don Hutchison

I’ve actually seen quite a few good reviews for this one and once again it’s pretty short so I wanted to give it a read.


Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Vikings! A YA Fantasy that’s Viking inspired, I am here for it and so excited to read it!


Fatal Throne by Various Authors

This is an anthology of stories all featuring the wives of Henry VIII, each other contributes a story for each wife. It sounded interesting so I requested it hopefully it doesn’t disappoint.


The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton

This is a READ NOW on Netgalley guys! So if you want it go get it! I am so excited to have a copy of this book, although I did hear it might just be a sampler but that wasn’t stated on Netgalley and it seems to be the full book I downloaded onto my Kindle. So.


Blood and Sand by C.V. Wyk

This is about gladiators and also I think Spartacus, so I am pumped to read this. Hopefully it’s as badass as I think it will be!

    So many good books, but OMG, The Butterfly Garden – I LOVE that series. It’s so freaking underrated! The third book comes out this summer, and if you end up loving the first book and reading the second one in time (they definitely have to be read in order), those books always go up on NetGalley so you could for sure get an eARC of the finale!

    I’m super excited to read Warcross and Jane, Unlimited! I’ve been meaning to start them for forever, but I haven’t found the time T^T & hmm, I’m very intrigued by the sound of Blood and Sand. The title sends chills down my spine!

    Great haul! Furyborn is incredible! I am so desperate for the next one! I am very tempted my Spindle Fire too… If you enjoy Furyborn as much as I did, please give me a message so I can fangirl with someone. πŸ™‚
