I may have gotten a little carried away this month with my book buying! I didn’t mean to buy this many when my TBR pile is already so big but they’re so pretty and look so interesting! Take a look!
1) Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
This cover is so pretty I love it so much. Still haven’t got around to reading Shatter Me yet but I’m sure I will love it!
Juliette has escaped from The Reestablishment. Now she’s free from their plan to use her as a weapon and free to love Adam. But there is one thing she will never be free from – her lethal touch. Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible. Haunted by her past and terrified of her future, Juliette knows that she will have to make some life-changing choices. Choices that may involve choosing between her heart – and Adam’s life.
2) Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray
This is the second book in the Firebird Trilogy. I bought this before I’d even read the first one because the covers are just so pretty.
After doing the impossible and traveling to other dimensions, Marguerite has now caught the attention of powerful enemies who are willing to do anything to use the Firebird for themselves. Marguerite also has another problem on her hands… Paul’s soul has been splintered into four pieces which are now trapped within Pauls in other dimensions. Marguerite will risk anything to save him and with the help of Theo, she forges a plan to save Paul and the Firebird.
Check out my review here.
3) Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children)
I bought all three books because my friend has been recommending them to me for a while and they sound awesome. I’ve started reading the first one and I love it! It’s a little creepy at times but that just makes me want to carry on reading it. It combines fiction and photography which makes it even more interesting!
Ever since Jacob was a baby, he was told stories by his grandfather of an orphanage on a remote island off the coast of Wales. He never fully believed the stories until a horrific family tragedy sets now sixteen year old Jacob journeying to the mysterious island where he finds the crumbling remains of an abandoned orphanage. Desperate to learn the truth of the orphanage, he explores the decaying building and discovers that Miss Peregrine’s children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous and were sent to the orphanage for a reason. And somehow – impossible though it seems – they may still be alive.
4) Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson
I have been looking at this book for months and finally decided to buy it! Ahh I’m so excited to read it, it sounds amazing. Take a look at the synopsis:
Dea Donahue has been able to travel through people’s dreams since she was six years old. Her mother taught her the three rules of walking: Never interfere. Never be seen. Never walk the same person’s dream more than once. Dea has never questioned her mother, not about the rules, not about the clocks or the mirrors, not about moving from place to place to be one step ahead of the unseen monsters that Dea’s mother is certain are right behind them.
Then a mysterious new boy, Connor, comes to town and Dea finally starts to feel normal. As Connor breaks down the walls that she’s had up for so long, he gets closer to learning her secret. For the first time she wonders if that’s so bad. But when Dea breaks the rules, the boundary between worlds begins to deteriorate. How can she know what’s real and what’s not?
5) Nightfall by Jake Halpern and Peter Kujawinski
Another book I have been looking at and just thought, why not? Lets buy it! It was recommended for fans of The Maze Runner and I absolutely loved that so I hope this is just as good! Here is the synopsis:
On Marin and Kana’s island, sunrise doesn’t come every twenty-four hours – it comes every twenty-eight years. The twins and the rest of their village are making preparations to leave, but Marin finds the eerie rituals frustrating. Locks must be taken off doors, tables must be set as if for dinner – but no one will tell her why.
And then, just as they are about to sail, Marin and Kana’s best friend Line goes missing. They know where he has gone, and that they’re the only ones who will risk saving him. But will the ships wait?
Night is falling. Their island is changing. And something is stirring in the dark.
6) Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Heard so many good things about this book and it sounds like one I would really love!
Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he’ll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist. He has to break into a military stronghold to retrieve a hostage and survive long enough to collect his reward. But Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable – if they don’t kill each other first.
7) A World Without You by Beth Revis
I’m dying to read this book because it sounds absolutely amazing! It is definitely different to what I normally read but the cover instantly drew me in it looks fascinating and the synopsis convinced me to buy it. Take a look:
What if finding her means losing himself?
Seventeen-year-old Bo has always had delusions that he can travel through time. When he was ten, Bo claimed to have witness the Titanic hit an iceberg, and at fifteen, he found himself on a Civil War battlefield, horrified by the bodies surrounding him. So when his worried parents send him to a school for troubled youth, Bo assumes he knows the truth: that he’s actually attending Berkshire Academy, a school for kids who, like Bo, have “superpowers”.
At the Academy, Bo falls in love with Sofia, a quiet girl with a tragic past and the superpower of invisibility. Sofia helps Bo open up in a way he never has before. In turn, Bo provides comfort to Sofia, who lost her mother and two sisters at a very young age.
But even the strength of their love isn’t enough to help Sofia escape her deep depression. After she commits suicide, Bo is convinced that she’s not actually dead. He believes that she’s stuck somewhere in the past, and that now it’s his job to save her. And as Bo becomes more and more determined to save Sofia, he must decide whether to face his demons head-on or succumb to a psychosis that will let him be with the girl he loves.
8) After You by JoJo Moyes
This is the sequel to Me Before You and at first I wasn’t going to buy it, but the paperback edition was only £2.99 so I thought for that price, why not? I don’t think it will be as good as Me Before You but I’ll still give it ago.
Lou Clark now spends her life working in an airport bar, spending every shift watching other people jet off to new places. The flat she’s owned for a year still doesn’t feel like home and she wonders whether her close-knit family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago. She knows that something has to change and then, one night, it does. But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for – or just more questions? Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe. Open it and she risks everything. But Lou once made a promise to live. And if she’s going to keep it, she has to invite them in . . .
9) The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
This caught my eye and when I read the blurb it really reminded me of The Girl on the Train. It had like a similar feel to it in terms of mystery and thriller. It sounds really good and I’m excited to read it!

You’ve never had to call the police before. But now they’re in your home, and who knows what they’ll find there.
What would you be capable of, when pushed past your limit?
