Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.



Why I'm Waiting: I'm a big fan of Holly Black's other books, and I'm really excited for her new release!

They call him father, liberator, warlord, Reaper. But he feels a boy as he falls toward the pale blue planet, his armor red, his army vast, his heart heavy. It is the tenth year of war and the thirty-second of his life.

A decade ago, Darrow was the hero of the revolution he believed would break the chains of the Society. But the Rising has shattered everything: Instead of peace and freedom, it has brought endless war. Now he must risk everything he has fought for on one last desperate mission. Darrow still believes he can save everyone, but can he save himself?


Why I'm Waiting: I love this series and I cannot wait to read the next installment to the Red Rising books. Even if I know I'm not emotionally prepared.

Top Ten Tuesday

 
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme started by the Broke and the Bookish.  Each week they chose a new meme and bloggers pick their Top Ten Books, TV Shows, Movies, etc that fit that theme. This week the theme is: Bookish Settings I'd Love to Visit!

Discworld 

Written by Terry Pratchett and one of my favorite series of all times. I'd love to travel here and discover the gender of the turtle myself!

Diagon Alley
I honestly don't know what my first stop would be. Probably the ice cream shop!
 
The Shire
Mostly so I could just lay in the fields and watch the clouds pass. Because it's quiet and nothing ever happens there.

Gotham City
Just to get a glimpse of the Batman himself

Endor
Okay, I'm well aware what happened to it okay, but that doesn't mean I can't imagine what it would be like to be there. I love the Ewoks!

Serenity 
Movie, what movie? It never happened! I would totally hitch a ride with these guys!

Heart of Gold
Say what you will about this movie, but I loved this book. I really need to finish the Hitchhiker Series by Douglas Adams

  • Elan is where Royce is. Therefor I need to go!
  • the Warren Hotel because it has legs! Who doesn't want to stay in a place that travels like!
  • Tortall so many places I want to see and people to meet, but only one cat I'm interested in hunting down.
HAPPY READING!!

Before Agatha Christie became the world’s Queen of Crime, she stood on the talented shoulders of the female crime authors who came before her. This splendid new anthology by Leslie S. Klinger brings these exceptional writers out of Christie’s shadow and back into the spotlight they deserve.









Why I'm Waiting:  Not only am I huge Agatha Christie fan, I'm a huge fan of mysteries. So, I'm excited to pick up In the Shadow of Agatha Christie to read the stories from the women her paved the way for her.
