What are you reading?

I’m currently 189 pages into Awaken by G. R. Thomas. And I’m really enjoying reading this. It’s highly descriptive and definitely unique. Without spoiling it for anyone its a spin on fallen angels and demons. This book has one of the most beautiful covers ive ever seen 😍. It’s an urban fantasy YA novel written by an Australian indie author and is set in Australia. Which, unfortunately I don’t seem to find enough of. It’s the first in a trilogy with the second being written as we speak.

Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things by Martina Mcatee. Omg! This book! Its been on my to buy list for months, ever since it popped up on my bookstagram news feed. The cover is gorgeous! The synopsis had me intrigued! THEN i noticed Martina was hosting a read along on instagram for the month of April and you could download a free e-copy to join in. Of course i jumped straight in! AND DEVOURED THEIMG_20160407_083831 BOOK! SOOOO GOOD! And now im hanging out like a junkie waiting for book two 😍😍 It has so many one liners that literally made me laugh out loud. Prime example: “Titanic?” the guy interrupted. “That movie was epic. Let’s talk about how the last movie you liked featured vampires who sparkled like bloodsucking pixie strippers. Sparkly vampires? When was the last time you saw a vampire glittering like a disco ball?”
It also has zombies, werewolves, magic, witches, reapers, amazing storyline, mystery, intrigue and SO MUCH MORE!! Highly recommend you read this….like yesterday.

Synopsis:
17 year old Ember Denning has made an art of isolating herself. She prefers the dead. She spends her days skimageipping school in old cemeteries and her nights hiding from her alcoholic father at the funeral home where she works. When her own father dies, Ember learns her whole life is a lie. Standing in the cemetery that’s been her sanctuary, she’s threatened by the most beautiful boy she’s ever seen and rescued by two people who claim to be her family. They say she’s special, that she has a supernatural gift like them…they just don’t know exactly what it is.

They take her to a small Florida town, where Ember’s life takes a turn for the weird. She’s living with her reaper cousins, an orphaned werewolf pack, a faery and a human genius. Ember’s powers are growing stronger, morphing into something bigger than anything anybody anticipated. Ember has questions but nobody has answers. Nobody knows what she is. They only know her mysterious magical gift is trying to kill them and that beautiful dangerous boy from the cemetery may be the only thing standing between her and death.

As Ember’s talents are revealed so are the secrets her father hid and those in power who would seek to destroy her. What’s worse, saving Ember has put her cousins in danger and turned her friend’s lives upside down. Ember must learn to embrace her magic or risk losing the family she’s pieced together.

What are you planning on reading next?

Ultraxenopia by M. A. Phipps. I was fortunate enough during Martina’s read along to win one her daily prizes. It was a free e-book of the dystopian novel Ultraxenopia by M. A. Phipps. During the read along Martina shared with us a book trailer and it looked AMAZING! So excited i won it and can’t wait to dig into this one once im finished with AwakenScreenshot_2016-04-20-21-12-09-1.png.

Synopsis:
Don’t stand out. Blend in. Remain invisible. Those are the rules I lived by—the rules I thought would keep me alive. 

I was wrong.

Wynter Reeves is a law-abiding citizen of the State, a willing conformist whose daily life is haunted by terrorism and oppression. With the constant threat of death hanging over her like a shadow, she forces herself to live by a strict set of rules, all in the hope of ensuring she is never noticed. However, on her twenty-first birthday, as she prepares to take the placement exam that will determine her future within society, she begins to show symptoms of a rare and debilitating illness—ultimately attracting the attention of the State. Taken into the custody of the feared research facility known as the DSD, her worst nightmare becomes reality.

Ripped away from the life she knew, Wynter is forced to become the test subject of the mysterious Dr. Richter. Through him, she learns the true and terrifying nature of her condition: a disease called Ultraxenopia.
