This Week's Reads

Blood Trade by Faith Hunter
Jane Yellowrock #6 (Goodreads)
**I've really been enjoying this series and cannot wait to find out how the tether between Leo and Beast messes everything up for everybody. Still ready for Rick to disappear for good but have a feeling he's still going to be around.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
Daughter of Smoke & Bone #1 (Goodreads)
**This one's been around for a bit and I've been wanting to read it since it came out, but never got around to it. Hoping for better results than the highly rated one that I'm forcing myself to finish now.

This Week's Reads

The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver
The Demon Trapper's #1 (Goodreads)
**This has been on my tbr since it came out. Found it on the shelf when I was looking for another author and decided it was time to read. Different than the normal assassin type books but sounds like it has the same feel to it.

Paper Princess by Erin Watt
The Royals #1 (Goodreads)
**This is a little more contemporary than I usually read. Something about the description made me bring it home and give it a try. I've seen a lot of good reviews and one really bad. The bad one worries me more than all the good ones but we'll see.

This Week's Reads

The Invasion of The Tearling by Erika Johansen
The Queen of The Tearling #2 (Goodreads)
**I loved the fantasy, dark magic, and the trials of Kelsea finding herself in book 1. Now to find out the consequences of all those things.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Caraval #1 (Goodreads)
**I grabbed this one with trepidation. There was so much hype surrounding this book and whenever there is that much hype I tend to not like the book as much as everyone else. It sounds like a really interesting premise though so hoping for the best.

This Week's Reads

Veiled by Benedict Jacka
Alex Verus #6 (Goodreads)
**There is a new book in this series coming out this week and it reminded me I needed to finish catching up. I've enjoyed reading about Alex trying to do the right thing even though he always seems to mess it up somehow.,

The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman
The Invisible Library #3 (Goodreads)
**I enjoyed both book 1 and 2 of this series. I'm mainly looking forward to this one being set in the library (at least from the blurb) rather than outside of it with quick trips that don't show us much.

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Reckoners #1 (Goodreads)

This Week's Reads

Raven Cursed by Faith Hunter
Jane Yellowrock #4 (Goodreads)
**I'm really enjoying this series. It has a nice mix of weres, witches, and vampires. I'm also probably the only person that doesn't like Rick but I'm able to overlook that character/romance since the rest of books are so good.

A Darkness Absolute by Kelley Armstrong
Casey Duncan #2 (Goodreads)
**City of The Lost was one of my favorite books last year. I'm hoping book 2 is just as good. I really liked getting to know Casey and the town (and people) of Rockton.

Another Castle: Grimoire by  Andrew Wheeler, Paulina Ganucheau (Illustrator) (Goodreads)
**Another new find at the library. Not familiar with this series but anything with a kickass princess is a good start.
