Exciting Upcoming Releases – May 2017


There are so many exciting upcoming releases in May of this year, and I just wanted to talk about a few of them! I want to start doing more non-review related posts because I don’t want my blog to be as structured as it has been for awhile.

Dreamfall (Dreamfall #1) – Amy PlumDreamfall (Dreamfall #1)

Cata Cordova suffers from such debilitating insomnia that she agreed to take part in an experimental new procedure. She thought things couldn’t get any worse…but she was terribly wrong.

Soon after the experiment begins, there’s a malfunction with the lab equipment, and Cata and six other teen patients are plunged into a shared dreamworld with no memory of how they got there. Even worse, they come to the chilling realization that they are trapped in a place where their worst nightmares have come to life. Hunted by creatures from their darkest imaginations and tormented by secrets they’d rather keep buried, Cata and the others will be forced to band together to face their biggest fears. And if they can’t find a way to defeat their dreams, they will never wake up.

Release Date: May 2, 2017

This book sounds like such an interesting paranormal book! I love books that slip into the dream world, and think this would be an interesting option because it’s about a group of people getting tested on, but still is in a paranormal feeling world. I think this would be fun to read, especially because it is the first in a new series. I would love to start some brand new series because I only ever read older series, and get stuck behind on everything…. Anyway, I hope to give this book a try when it comes out.


You Were Here – Gian SardarYou Were Here

What if the past is never buried?
Death, accidental and early, has always been Abby Walters’s preoccupation. Now thirty-three and eager to settle down with her commitment-shy boyfriend, a recurring dream from her past returns: a paralyzing nightmare of being buried alive, the taste of dirt in her mouth cloying and real. But this time the dream reveals a name from her family’s past. Looking for answers, Abby returns home to small-town Minnesota for the first time in fourteen years, where she reconnects with her high school crush, now a police detective on the trail of a violent criminal. When Abby tries on her grandmother’s mesmerizing diamond ring, a ring she always dreamed would be hers, she discovers a cryptic note long hidden beneath the box’s velvet lining. What secret was her grandmother hiding? And could this be the key to what’s haunting Abby? As she begins to uncover the traces of a love triangle gone shockingly wrong nearly seventy years before, we, too, see that the layers of our lives may echo a past we’ve never known. With mesmerizing twists and a long-buried secret that may finally rise to light, You Were Here weaves together two worlds separated by decades, asking if the mistakes made in past lives can ever be corrected in the future, and if some souls are meant to find one another time and time again.

Release Date: May 16, 2017

I have been getting more interested in mysteries lately, and I hope to read more this year. I am currently reading The Woman in Cabin 10, and am really enjoying it thus far. I think mysteries are a great way to add some suspense to your life. It’s always good to get a little freaked out sometimes. I think this book sounds interesting because it’s about a woman going back to her hometown and finding a high school crush, but then something goes wrong. There will obviously be some romance, but I feel like it will mainly focus on the mystery/thriller aspect of the story.


Juan Pablo and the ButterfliesJuan Pablo and the Butterflies – J. J. Flowers

After facing problems with a local drug cartel in Mexico, a man and his best friend must flee to California for their freedom and a chance for survival.

In the small town of El Rosario, Mexico’s butterfly sanctuary, drug traffickers begin to take over and disrupt the life of the community. As Juan Pablo’s grandmother, the medicine woman of the town, lies on her deathbed, she tells her grandson that he must follow the migration of butterflies to Pacific Grove, California—to another butterfly sanctuary—where someone will be waiting for him. When Juan Pablo uses one of his grandmother’s poisons on members of the cartel, he and his best friend Rocio must leave for California as soon as they can and follow the butterflies. But is he following the wings of freedom? Or death?

Release Date: May 9, 2017

I haven’t read very many books about people from Mexico, and I believe that this would be an interesting read because it would be so different for me. I think the premise of this book sounds quite interesting because it’s about leaving something scary and bad, and coming to try and make a new life. I think that this book will actually be twisted and creepy in a way. Just in the synopsis it talks about the main character killing some people then moving away to try and make a better life for himself. I don’t know, it sounds interesting because it’s unlike what I normally read.


I hope these were some decent recommendations from a reader who hasn’t read them yet… I think these books will be interesting, and I hope I get to them this year, or at least buy one or two of them. I think the one I’m most excited for is Juan Pablo and the Butterflies. I think reading diversely is important, and for me this would be a diverse read.

Best of luck in your endeavors for finding new releases in May!

4 out of 5 stars


Huge thank you to Iain Reading for sending me a copy of this book and for the sweet message on the Amazon gift note!

Kitty Hawk, pilot of a seaplane, embarks on her journey around the world by first stopping in the Florida Keys. She flies down from Canada for her first leg of the trip, and finds herself on an island called Dry Tortugas in the Keys. She takes her plane there and sees a large building made of brick, a campsite, and the beautiful coral reef under the water.

Kitty camps at the campsite and makes some friends with fellow campers who happen to know a lot about shipwrecks from the Civil War era. Kitty falls asleep on a beach, and when she wakes up there are some curious things happening. She sees signaling with flashlights. And a boat out on the water in the pitch black. Hmm. Interesting. Kitty Hawk, being the detective she is, looks into these occurrences and find out some information that surprises her…

This book involves adventuring, sleuthing, snorkeling, and scary barracudas. I enjoyed this book because, like the first, there is adventure. This book had some Nancy Drew vibes which made my heart very happy as I will always love Miss Drew and her detective work. I flew through this book, and enjoyed it so much more than the first one. I loved that Kitty was on her own because it just showed the women can be independent. I think this set a good example for younger readers.

One of my favorite parts of this book was right at the beginning when she went to the Ernest Hemingway museum and was talking to James, the tour guide. It was nice seeing Kitty as a normal teenage girl. She was flirting with him, but she’s kind of awkward, but it was great. I love that she bought quite a few of Hemingway’s books. As a book lover myself, I love reading stories about people who also love books. Although I haven’t picked up any of the famous Hemingway works, I hope to now!

Overall I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read the rest of the series!

Huge thank you to Iain, again!

Simon Lewis has been a human and a vampire, and now he is becoming a Shadowhunter. But the events of City of Heavenly Fire left him stripped of his memories, and Simon isn’t sure who he is anymore. He knows he was friends with Clary, and that he convinced the total goddess Isabelle Lightwood to go out with him…but he doesn’t know how. And when Clary and Isabelle look at him, expecting him to be a man he doesn’t remember…Simon can’t take it.

So when the Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon throws himself into this new world of demon-hunting, determined to find himself again. His new self. Whomever this new Simon might be.

But the Academy is a Shadowhunter institution, which means it has some problems. Like the fact that non-Shadowhunter students have to live in the basement. And that differences—like being a former vampire—are greatly looked down upon. At least Simon is trained in weaponry—even if it’s only from hours of playing D&D.

Join Simon on his journey to become a Shadowhunter, and learn about the Academy’s illustrious history along the way, through guest lecturers such as Jace Herondale, Tessa Gray, and Magnus Bane. These ten short stories give an epilogue to the Mortal Instruments series and provide glimpses of what’s in store in the Dark Artifices.


Pale Kings and Princes

5 out of 5 stars

Ahh! Sizzy Sizzy Sizzy. They’re back. My favorite couple is back together. I KNEW IT. I mean I’ve read Lady Midnight so I knew some stuff, but it’s so cute omg. This has been one of my favorites so far because I finally got what I wanted, and the way it happened was so cute. If you hadn’t guessed it, Simon and Isabelle are now dating again. Everything is great, and I’m loving life. I really liked what happened in this novella because I learned a little more about the characters from Lady Midnight, and the reason they did some of the things they did. I’m really glad that I read this after I read Lady Midnight because I would have been a little confused had I not. I love the little connections Cassandra Clare makes while still adding new content to the world. It’s great. I love it.

 

Bitter of Tongue

4 out of 5 stars

I have to say, I really don’t like Sarah Rees Brennan’s writing style. It’s strange to me that I could recognize that it wasn’t Cassandra Clare the whole time, but I could tell from the beginning of this novella. The conversations weren’t what they usually are. They were choppy and very awkwardly written. I think that it was Brennan who wrote the conversations, but that’s just an educated guess. Overall I think this was a great addition to the Shadowhunter world as a whole. Again, I’m VERY glad that I read Lady Midnight before reading these novellas. I would have been so confused because the characters are from The Dark Artifices series, and I wouldn’t have gotten how important this story was if I hadn’t read the first installment of The Dark Artifices series. I’ve always been curious about the land of faerie throughout Clare’s novels. It confuses me, but in a good way. It’s always deceptive, but it’s always magical. This sounds strange, but when I’m reading about the land of the faeries, it feels fuzzy. Not confused fuzzy, but the way that the world is written feels softer than the harsh Shadowhunters world. It’s strange to explain it, but I love learning more about it. I am so excited to finish this book and then re-read Lady Midnight before Lord of Shadows comes out in March!

 

The Fiery Trial

4 out of 5 stars

I was kind of confused throughout this one if I’m being honest. I knew that it had something to do with parabatai because I remembered that they called it the fiery trial, but I got confuzzled when Clary and Simon just randomly started hallucinating. It made sense after it was explained, and the story of it ties up loose ends in the stories, but I was not following for approximately 5 pages. The end of this just made me sad because Emma and Julian just went through the parabatai ritual, but they should love each other romantically, not in a parabatai way. Ugh. It makes me so sad seeing a love so pure not being able to work out. Again, I cannot wait to re-read Lady Midnight because I will catch onto so many things I had missed in the first frantically quick reading. Reading these novellas does remind me why Cassandra Clare is my favorite author, so that’s making me quite happy.

 

Born to Endless Night

5 out of 5 stars

This was the story about how Alec and Magnus got their son that is mentioned in Lady Midnight. THIS WAS SO CUTE. My favorite scenes included: Simon walking in on Alec and Magnus, Simon declaring his love for Isabelle, and Jace being his sassy arrogant self. I really loved this novella. It was so cute because it was about the baby warlock that Alec and Magnus are now the parents to. Malec and Sizzy are my favorite OTPs from The Mortal Instruments, and I’ve always loved the dynamic between Magnus and Alec. They love each other so much, and you saw Alec first learn to love because of Magnus, and Magnus finally feeling real love because of Alec. It’s just so cute. I really enjoyed this one, and again, it makes me want to reread Lady Midnight (shocker) because I will know so much more now. I am really sad that I will be starting the last one next, but alas, it had to happen eventually.

 

Angels Twice Descending

5 out of 5 stars

That was not what I had expected from the ending, but it was a nice conclusion in a way. I’m very sad. I won’t spoil, but I’m very sad. I really enjoyed this one, and I do have to say that the way it ended made sense for the storyline, but I just didn’t want it to happen like that. Ugh ugh ugh. I really enjoyed everything about this one, even the ending. Sometimes being sad is the only satisfactory way to feel. I loved what Simon said to George about being brothers. That part made my heart happy. Overall, I really enjoyed the second have of this book, and loved being thrown back into this amazing world. I can’t wait for more of it.

Welcome to the world of the fabulously wealthy in London, 1909, where dresses and houses are overwhelmingly opulent, social class means everything, and women are taught to be nothing more than wives and mothers. Into this world comes seventeen-year-old Victoria Darling, who wants only to be an artist—a nearly impossible dream for a girl.
           
After Vicky poses nude for her illicit art class, she is expelled from her French finishing school. Shamed and scandalized, her parents try to marry her off to the wealthy Edmund Carrick-Humphrey. But Vicky has other things on her mind: her clandestine application to the Royal College of Art; her participation in the suffragette movement; and her growing attraction to a working-class boy who may be her muse—or may be the love of her life. As the world of debutante balls, corsets, and high society obligations closes in around her, Vicky is torn. Just how much is she willing to sacrifice to pursue her dreams?

4 out of 5 stars


I picked this book up on a whim while I was at the library, and I’m so glad I did! I’m not going to lie, the reason I first picked this book up was because of the cover. It’s beautiful, and simple, and classic looking. I love the yellow dress on the front, as well. Then I read the synopsis, as one does, and was immediately pulled in.

It was set in London in the 1900s. It’s about an artist. A seventeen year old girl poses nude for her art class, gets sent home, finds her muse, is betrothed to a man…

Oh gosh it was so fun to read.

After picking this up from the library I went to Goodreads to see some general reviews, just to get a feel as to what I was about to read, and was a little nervous.

One of the first reviews I skimmed was a girl freaking out because of the first few sentences of the book:

“I never set out to pose nude. I didn’t, honestly.”

And people were so angsty about this. I don’t understand what the issue is. It is supposed to be sarcastic sounding. I feel like sometimes people look into things like this too much. It was that she never thought she would, but she ended up posing. She didn’t regret it at all, and I think that that showed a strong character.

Near the beginning when I found out she was betrothed to this guy, I was really against the other love interest, Will. I was being somewhat judgey of Victoria because she knew she shouldn’t be drawing this other guy, but I couldn’t dislike him. Wow. William Fletcher was my favorite character in this story because he was so happy and so encouraging to Victoria. If it weren’t for him she probably would have given up on her dreams of being an artist. Her family didn’t believe in her, and made it impossible for her to create, so she turned to Will and I’m so glad she did.

Their relationship was so cute. There were so many parts of this story that my heart just felt so happy and full. All of you know the feeling I’m talking about. The one where you almost have to make a high pitched noise because your heart is so happy. Cause yeah, same. I think the reason I liked their relationship so much was because it reminded me of my relationship. My boyfriend is supportive of me just as Will was to Victoria, and it was just so cute.

This book took a turn that I didn’t think it would take, but I really enjoyed it. I was not expecting to get a heavy suffragist theme, but I really enjoyed it. The women were fighting for equal rights, and I really respected that. I couldn’t have been put in Victoria’s place where she had to be prim and proper her whole life just so then she could be respectable in her class. I would be a suffragist because, I too, believe in equal opportunities for men and women.

I really love historical fiction, and this book just reminded me of that. I really enjoyed reading this, and loved that Sharon Biggs Waller had some of the history in the back of the book. I love when authors actually research their writing to make sure it’s historically accurate.

Overall, I really liked this book. It was a relatively fast read, and it put me in a historical fiction mood again! Pick up this book if you want a cute romance and a strong female lead.

All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds are against them. Kronos is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, his power only grows.

In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling series, the prophecy surrounding Percy‘s sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.

5 out of 5 stars


I can’t even explain how glad I am I ended up reading this series. I wish I would have read the books while I was in middle school, but seriously, they are so good. I have loved every single one of the Percy Jackson books, and this is no exception!

Most of this book consists of the final battle that takes place in New York City with the monsters and Kronos vs. the heroes and Demigods. The battle scenes were so epic, and there were so many twists and turns throughout this book. It starts off with Percy and Rachel Dare spending time together *not okay with this since she showed up, but whatever* and then Percy going back to Camp Half-Blood. Everything is different now, though. Grover is off running around with other satyrs, so his best friend is gone. Annabeth is kind of mad at him because he’s spending time with Rachel. And, Kronos has taken over Luke’s body and is trying to kill all the Gods of Olympus. But other than that, everything is great. ;)

Again, most of this book takes place during the battle in NYC, so it had a lot of action and battle. I don’t want to give too much away because this is the last book in the Percy Jackson series, but I would seriously recommend reading all of the books. Even if you don’t love the PJO stories, this last book is worth it.

I loved the Percy and Annabeth scenes; they were soooooooo cute. I think the Percabeth is one of my biggest ships because they are seriously just so perfect for each other. She calls him Seaweed Brain and oh my gosh it’s so cute. I wish there were more scenes with them, but I can’t complain because the ones I had were great.

Two of my favorite scenes from the book:

Percy bathing in the River Styx and being tied to the mortal world because of his love for Annabeth. He loves her friendship, and that’s the only thing that keeps him from drowning and it’s just so flipping cute.

“And it was pretty much the best underwater kiss of all time.” *heart eyes*

Very thankful that I’ve read these books, and can’t wait to find out what happens to the characters in the next series!

PS. Please read these books. I promise they’re worth the hype.

It is not a peaceful time in the Dells. In King City, the young King Nash is clinging to the throne, while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to unseat him. War is coming. And the mountains and forest are filled with spies and thieves. This is where Fire lives, a girl whose beauty is impossibly irresistible and who can control the minds of everyone around her. Exquisitely romantic, this companion to the highly praised Graceling has an entirely new cast of characters, save for one person who plays a pivotal role in both books. You don’t need to have read Graceling to love Fire. But if you haven’t, you’ll be dying to read it next.

1 out of 5 stars


I marked this book as “currently reading” on Goodreads in April. As in 6 months ago. I try not to do that, but I couldn’t help myself. I really hated this book. I found it to be so unbelievably boring I could hardly stand it.

I loved Graceling. It was such a cool plot and was written very well and kept my interest the whole time, but the I think I just had too high of expectations for this one, because I was thoroughly disappointed.  There was no plot to this one. Fire was pretty, she was considered a monster, she had a friend with benefits, she moved away, shit went down, and then something somehow worked out in the end for her.

She had a hard life, but then she gets what she wants in the end? Hmm. Idk how I feel about that one.

I didn’t like Fire as a character. She wasn’t as strong as everyone thought she was. I just. I really did not like her. I feel like if I talk more I will just spoil this book entirely.

Just remember, just because I didn’t like a book doesn’t mean it was awful. Just because I didn’t enjoy it doesn’t mean you won’t. I believe in it being the right or wrong time to read a book, and this was probably just not the time for me to read this one. If you enjoyed Graceling, give this one a try; I know a lot of my friends have LOVED this book.

That’s all.

A high-stakes online game of dares turns deadly

When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game knows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it’s exhilarating–Vee and Ian’s fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they’re directed to a secret location with five other players for the Grand Prize round. Suddenly they’re playing all or nothing, with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?


3 out of 5 stars

I read this book when I was in Italy! Just that random tidbit of information. I only started this book because I needed a cheap book on my Nook for the long plane rides to and from Italy. I got this book because I knew that it was a movie, and I love the main actors that will be in the movie. I’m very excited to see the movie, because I think it will be read better as a movie.

I didn’t love this book, but I also didn’t hate it. I thought that it was okay, but definitely could have been better. One thing I didn’t like about this book was that you got no background information whatsoever on any of the characters. And the beginning had nothing to do with the end; it starts with a little epilogue thing before the story starts as kind of a hook, but there was no purpose. It literally didn’t connect at all. So ugh to that.

This book is basically the drama version of The Hunger Games, but less dangerous. These teenagers can sign up to be part of the game NERVE where they’re offered great prizes in turn for doing embarrassing dares and posting them on the website. The main character just randomly is like, ‘oh yeah. even though i’m never ever rebellious, lets just play around with the game.’ Firstly, she did not have the personality during the beginning of the book to even go through with the dares, but whatever. Her first dare is to dump water over her head in a coffee shop and sing a song at the same time. She ends up getting a ton of likes and a lot of views on her video, so she continues on. She is set with a partner named Ian, whom she, of course, falls in love with.

Ian. Hmm. I don’t get it. I get that he’s like extremely hot and that’s why she’s attracted to him, but you get no back story on him at all. He talks about how he needs to escape and be free, but you never find out why he feels like that. I didn’t see his drive throughout the story.

The actual game NERVE was a really cool concept, but it could have been better executed in my opinion. There wasn’t a reason except for selfishness. I don’t know if there’s an underlying message, but honestly it was a wannabe Hunger Games.
