Spring 2018 Reading List!


Back at the beginning of the year I made a promise to myself to read 52 books in one year, meaning I could read a book a week and be set. I thought this was going to be easy for me since, not only am I a huge book lover, but I am a very fast reader (I finished all five of the Mortal Instruments in one week!). I didn’t, however, realize just how busy this semester would be. And I have only finished about 3 or 4 books… so, I thought it was time to make a list and pick up reading again.

The Final Six by Alexandra Monir.
The earth is becoming an unlivable place due to erratic climate change. The fate of humanity lies in 24 teenagers who have been chosen to scout a new planet. Upon those 24 teens, there is Leo and Naomi. Leo has been preparing for something like this his entire life. Naomi is prepared, but becomes suspicious after finding out a similar mission failed. I got complete ‘The 100’ vibes from this book description, except instead of exploring earth, their exploring a new planet.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.
An almost impossible heist needs to be pulled off in order for Kaz Brekker to receive everything he has ever dreamed of. And he has recruited six of the most dangerous and deadliest outcast to help him achieve this. If he can pull this off, the outcome will be incredible, but there is only a slight chance of making it out alive. This book sounds like such an adventure, and I cannot wait to read it!

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.
Girl meets mysterious boys that capture her attention, and she captures theirs as well. And through their journey, Blue is about to uncover secrets she never knew she had, and she will realize that things aren’t always what they seem to be. This book series has been on the top of my reading list for so long. I feel like it’s going to have some dark twists, but I am excited to find out what all the hype about this book is about.

Fragments of the Lost by Megan Miranda.
Right after Jessa broke up with her boyfriend, Caleb, Caleb was involved in a terrible accident. Despite Caleb’s mom blaming Jessa for the accident, she has allowed her to come pack up Caleb’s room. Jessa agreed to do so in hope of decreasing the guilt she has, but she ends up finding out a bunch of secrets about their relationship. And their relationship might not have been as great as Jessa once thought. If you want a mystery book, this sounds like the perfect one!

Hunted by Meagan Spooner.
Beauty and the Beast was always my favorite Disney Princess story. Hunted is supposed to be a retelling of the classic fairy tale with a huge twist on it. Yeva and her family must move out into the forest after losing their fortune. Not to soon after, Yeva’s father goes missing, and Yeva decides she will hunt the beast her father has been tracking right before he became missing. And she intends to not only find the beast, but her father as well.

A Quiet Kind ofThunder by Sara Barnard.
Steffi hasn’t talked for years. Rhys has been death since birth. Once Rhys comes to a new school, Steffi is assigned to show his around due to her somewhat knowledge of sign language. Through their friendship, Steffi might learn a bit more about herself.

Alex Approximately by Jenn Bennett.
Bailey met the guy of her dreams online. But she hasn’t met him yet because of her fears of him turning out to not be who he claims to be. That’s why when she moves to his town, she doesn’t tell him. Meanwhile, she meets Porter who easily becomes her enemy. Little does she know that Porter is actually Alex. I haven’t read a cute little book that would leave a smile on my face afterwards in a long time, and I hope this is going to be one of those books.

Cress by Marissa Meyer.
If you have not begun the Lunar Chronicles, what are you doing with your book life? I finished Cinder, I finished Scarlet, and I am literally about to begin Cress (hopefully tonight). The Lunar Chronicles is a dystopian take on the classic fairy tales and let me just say, Marissa Meyer is a genius.
