……..I really need to quit getting more books because I’m still in this terrible reading slump. I know, feels like I’ve been complaining for months (I kind of have). However, retail therapy actually works for me ESPECIALLY when books are involved so I don’t blame myself too terribly much. This isn’t a super big haul either but still counts!
Each title is linked to their Goodreads page in case you want more info or to add it to your TBR too!
This book is super hyped but it was sort of one of those under the radar books until everyone started reading it and discovering how awesome it was. Therefore I added it and finally snagged a copy and I’m SUPER excited to read it because dark, shocking fantasies are my thing. Also it was 50% off at Barnes & Noble so I grabbed it like it was the last copy (it wasn’t but I panicked)!
This is a YA mystery/thriller and kind of “sounds” like your typical one but I just know it will be a fun ride. I really enjoyed the twists in Elston’s “This Is Our Story” and I’ve seen some pretty glowing reviews for this!
Joe Hill + Glowing Reviews + Horror Fiction = One Purchased Book by Heather. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this one and I’m not going to pass up the chance to read it! I purchased this with a Christmas gift card and my grandma asked what books I chose and I told her what they were about and she asks “Don’t you ever read anything nice?”. No, grandma. I don’t.
I finally got it! I’m not quite sure I’m ready to be so hurt again but at the same time, bring it on!
This was essentially an auto-buy because it’s Victoria/V.E. Schwab but also Scotland and ghost hunting. I pretty much had no choice but to buy it!
I’ve heard nothing but good things about Darcy Coates from my fave horror reading buddy Destiny @ Howling Libraries so of course I need to give her books a try! They actually go on sale for SUPER cheap on Kindle quite often so I picked this one up for $0.99, for that price you can’t really go wrong!
I mean there’s Phoenix Riders so I’m here for it. That’s pretty much it. Well and there’s some other cool fantasy elements involving throne politics, sisters, and disguising oneself as a man to join an order. I think it’ll be awesome, can’t go wrong with phoenixes in my opinion!
This is a YA Contemporary about two girls in abusive families who decide to get out of their lives together and start anew. It sounds like a really interesting story and it has to be if I’m reading contemporary because it usually isn’t my cup of tea.
I really enjoyed Berquist’s debut “Devils Unto Dust” and her latest book here sounds even better! This is about Lexi, who can sense how and when someone will die with a touch and when she foresees the violent death of a young woman she is too late to save her. However, she isn’t too late to help her ghost take revenge on her murderer. Sounds really good, right? Plus there’s some LGTBQ+ vibes too!
