"A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.

It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend."

From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie... and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

My name is Bently Young. I wouldn’t say I’m an angry person. In fact my life had been like a bubble gum infused sundae topped with happiness sprinkles up until the age of when I could date. And I started to date a lot. Guys were fun at first, a nice dinner, someone to tell me I was pretty and laugh at my sarcastic jokes. But then the little creeps started showing their true colors. And they were not my favorite colors. They were like barf green and overripe fungus tangerine. And it made me angry. 

Swearing off dating all together was too drastic, but I sure wanted to not do it for a while. I had my family and friends to keep me occupied. I didn’t need a man to take me to cheesy restaurants. One could only eat so much free bread and butter. Life could keep zooming along without the necessity of someone with chest hair being around. 

Oh but then I met Josh. If I could have just never known he existed, all would have been fine. Of course, I don’t mean that because if I never knew he was in the world, my own world would have been an awful place. He makes me want to dance under a happiness sprinkle hail storm. Pretty much he is gorgeous and has the insane ability to use his words to make my heart float out of my chest. That made things a lot better when everything else I knew in my life decided to implode. But we weren’t immune to the black hole of horribleness either. 

Ours is an epic love story and I just happened to write it down for you…

In 1868 England, the competition to control agriculture is fierce… 
…and nobody says no to Derby’s industrial magnate. 

Except Annmar Masterson. The nineteen-year-old rejects his improper advances and instead takes an advertising position on a farm. She discovers the isolated valley is home to gifted species—including animal and plant shifters—who hide their lives from the rest of England. The blue threads only she sees on their clockwork machinery prove her heritage is rooted with theirs, but their world is so different that Annmar doesn't know if she'll ever belong. 

Shapeshifter Daeryn Darkcoat blames himself for the death of his mate and swears he won't be responsible for another pack. But when the farm he loves falls victim to an endless run of strange pests eating the crops, he joins the hunt, taking charge of an unruly team of predator shifters. In the midst of the battle, Annmar stirs feelings he can’t resist. 

As Annmar becomes entangled in the fight against the pests, and with Daeryn, she discovers her magic might help…if she can learn to use it properly. If not, she’ll be forced to leave the people she has come to care for and become what she fears most: nothing more than another cog in the magnate’s gears. 

Like Fantasy? LOVE these... Top pick's of 2015!

Hey everyone!

As you may have guessed, one of my favourite genres is fantasy. Who's isn't?

What I love about this genre is that you can become completely immersed in a unique new world, usually full of magical creatures and rarely are two books the same.

My favourite magical creature would have to be the Fae but I do love witches, dragons, demons and all the rest of it. Although there doesn't have to be creatures like dragons in fantasy books for me to love them, just some semblance of magic and I'm hooked.

So I've spend the majority of my summer reading this genre and I've put together some of my top reads which I think you guys should check out and hopefully come to love as much as me.

Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own.

But in Noa’s world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch—or a kiss. And Callum’s not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: Will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought?

Book Haul

Hey Guys!

So I thought I'd share with you my latest book haul, one because they're so pretty and it would be rude of me not to ;), but mainly because I got these idea's from some of your reviews and Goodreads. I'm really excited about reading these and hopefully discovering some new favourite's along the way, between these, re-reading the Throne of Glass series and some Arc's and eArc's I'm going to have a busy August!

Scorched by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I adore JLA, her writing is amazing and she's always coming up with great new concepts for YA but the main reason I read her novels is because of her romances.. they're sensational! It also doesn't hurt that every male character is drop dead gorgeous hahaha. This is her latest NA Contemporary Romance and it's received some great reviews so I can't wait to get lost in another JLA romance.

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire

Speaking of Contemporary Romance, this was got to be my all time favourite and the best of McGuire's books. I discovered this book last year on my Kindle and haven't forgotten it since, every romance I read is automatically compared to this. I just had to get my own paperback version because it's just not the same reading it electronically, this book with no doubt be showing some serious signs of wear by next year. Travis Maddox is The Number 1 Book Boyfriend <3

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

I have a confession.. I've never read a book by this woman (don't shout). To be honest I've never really heard of her until a few months ago but since then she's all I hear about. The majority of the blogs I visit frequently are always commenting on her writing and books and the majority of the reviews on Goodreads say she's the Best YA Contemporary Romance writer out there. This definitely does not go unnoticed as I am a sucker for a good heartthrob and a shamelessly hopeless romantic. Safe to say I needed to read this book, I know I'm going to be checking out her Never Never series too but before I go down the Paranormal route I need to check out her romance writing asap. 

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

I figured I'd probably shopped a little too much in the Romance section (if there's such a thing) and decided to get back to some High Fantasy. I've been meaning to read this book for a while now as it's supposed to be fast paced with plenty of characters and amazing world building. Plus it's about princes/princesses, rebels, sorcerers and magic? What's not to love.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

This YA dystopian series has received so much praise lately and I've recently found out it's going to be a movie! Although these seldom work out great like The Mortal Instruments Series, the books are always so much better, I thought it's best to read them first. Although hands down the Harry Potter movies are the greatest. I've also seen these books marked as some of my fellow blogger's favourites so I know I'm sure to love it!

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

If you've visited my blog before then you will have no doubt seen my ridiculously long list of reasons as to why you should read this book in my review. This book kept me up all night as I was unable to put this down, I'm so excited that this book is going to be a series as it was originally supposed to be a standalone and I was left with soo many questions. The journey continues hooray!

Queen of Someday by Sherry D. Ficklin

This is a Historical Fiction Romance and it's about time a good one came along, my shelves are lacking in this department, so the sound of royals, empresses, court politics and a good romance is exactly what I am looking for. Although it's supposedly somewhat contains a love square it's still getting great reviews? So it really must be good but on some reviews it says the heroine has a love triangle but also takes a lover?... WHAT? This isn't a bad thing at all, it's about time we had a promiscuous MC and a royal no less doing exactly what she wants because let's not forget this is a Historical Romance and a multitude of love interests in somewhat expected no? Either way I can't wait to actually find out what this book is about.

The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima

I rounded my latest book haul with another high fantasy, I seriously can't get enough of this genre, I always find my captivated and wanting more. I just knew I had to have this series when many people on Goodreads said this is perfect for lovers of The Lumatere Chronicles. The Lumatere Chronicles was a 5 star read for every book, so if anyone likes High Fantasy I urge you to check out this series first, Melinda Marchetta is an absolute wonder and her writing is simply superlative. The Demon King includes princesses, thieves  wizards and lots of magic so again this was a no brainer; I simply must read it!

If any of you have read these books let me know what you think,
please be good!

Review: 5/5 *Full Review Below.

Set in a terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An Ember in the Ashes is an epic fantasy debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his freedom. It’s a story that’s literally burning to be told.

What if you were the spark that could ignite a revolution?

For years Laia has lived in fear. Fear of the Empire, fear of the Martials, fear of truly living at all. Born as a Scholar, she’s never had much of a choice.

For Elias it’s the opposite. He has seen too much on his path to becoming a Mask, one of the Empire’s elite soldiers. With the Masks’ help the Empire has conquered a continent and enslaved thousands, all in the name of power.

When Laia’s brother is taken she must force herself to help the Resistance, the only people who have a chance of saving him. She must spy on the Commandant, ruthless overseer of Blackcliff Academy. Blackcliff is the training ground for Masks and the very place that Elias is planning to escape. If he succeeds, he will be named deserter. If found, the punishment will be death.

But once Laia and Elias meet, they will find that their destinies are intertwined and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.
In the ashes of a broken world one person can make a difference. One voice in the dark can be heard. The price of freedom is always high and this time that price might demand everything, even life itself.

Allie Carmichael has always believed life is simple.
You’re born.
You live.
You die.
She has no cause to believe that equation works differently for her, but there has to be a reason the world treats her like a pariah.
When an unexpected move to Kelleys Island brings Aidan McBrien crashing into her life, Allie is thrown by his reaction. He doesn’t shrink from her touch. He doesn’t stutter or make a quick exit. He smiles and welcomes her into his circle of friends, who aren’t exactly comfortable with Allie, but they seem to get her in a way most people don’t.
Finally, Allie has a real shot at normal and rides that high right up to her sixteenth birthday when she wakes in agony—an experience Aidan insists they have all faced. She struggles in ignorance, uncertain of what is real and what isn’t. When she emerges, Allie is different. She has always been different, but even among her extraordinary friends, she and Aidan are special.
As Allie struggles to maintain her tenuous grasp on the power that threatens to overwhelm her, she worries she will lose herself in this strange new world. A dangerous world where she will have to fight tooth and nail to defend the power and freedom that is her birthright. 
…only Allie hates to fight.

This is my absolute favourite series ever by my fave-fave-fave author Sarah J. Maas!

This also isn't a read along, I'm just taking the month to familiarise myself with the books whilst reading others (The Ember in the Ashes and my first Colleen Hoover book yay!) and getting excited for the new release! 

But if anyone has already begun reading these do let me know what you think or feel free to unload a feelings dump on whether you love/hate the series or any predictions for QoS!

Intrigue abounds in this hotly anticipated sequel to The Kiss of Deception!

Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape. Desperate to save her life, Lia's erstwhile assassin, Kaden, has told the Vendan Komizar that she has the gift, and the Komizar's interest in Lia is greater than anyone could have foreseen.

Meanwhile, nothing is straightforward: there's Rafe, who lied to Lia, but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom Lia always believed to be barbarians. Now that she lives amongst them, however, she realizes that may be far from the truth. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her sense of self, Lia must make powerful choices that will affect her country... and her own destiny.
