Hello internet!! (#DanHowellvibesmuch??) A few days ago it was my birthday and I got a few new books! Well actually I got a gift card and chose half of them myself although CLOSE ENOUGH! I almost did a video instead but the camera memory is full (or something) but I hope you like the pictures! I gave them all relatively summery themes.

// This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp //

I found out about this book through my lit teacher, who actually said she disliked it; contrarily it is a number one New York Times bestseller which is insane. With this in mind, I googled it and I think it seems like a book I would REALLY be interested in. The cover is pretty cool, but the book itself must be pretty heartbreaking given it’s narrated from several different students during a school shooting.

I quite frankly have no idea what this is about, but it has a really unique cover. I MIGHT bring up the state of the cover for every picture…) All I know is that there’s another depressed teen as the main character. WELL THE BOOKS I BUY ARE ALL JUST SO…ENLIGHTENING. It’s not too hard to decipher that, with one look at the title, *google searches synopsis* and YEP it’s seems to be nothing more than that. Crossing my fingers that the writing is amazing. I think that the potential for that quality is definitely there.

Thank GOODNESS I didn’t go see the movie! This book wasn’t too high on my tbr but since I own it now, reading it will be inevitable of course! It’s definitely a very futuristic kind of book, and I always enjoy those really. I am super glad that the movie is starring Emma Watson though; it’ll make seeing the book come to life very enjoyable!!

// A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Mass //

ACOMAF is totally great so far; in fact so GREAT that I decided that I need to have the next book for right when I finish!! ACOMAF is going like this so far: Hey I’m Feyre who’s now a High Lord and I have no idea what I’m doing with my powers. Or my life. OH MY GOD I CAN’T STAY WITH THIS JERK FOR ETERNITY. *flees to Rhysand* Muchhhh better. This guy has wings, which means open rooms, which means I feel FREE! Much much better. For convenience we might as well fall in love. IN ALL SERIOUSNESS THOUGH IT ACTUALLY IS AMAZING XD.

// Bombshell by Rowan Maness //

My best friend got me this, and she warned me that I’d think it would sound cheesy but I think it actually sounds GREAT. I’ve never heard of it before but I seriously LOVEEEE THE COVER SO MUCH. I CAN’T EVEN. Anyways, I was looking at it on the Barnes and Noble website when I NOTICED something. It says “MTV’s Catfish meets We Were Liars...” I had a huge fangirling moment when I read that. So it’s pretty much like a 50% version ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOK; or I’m HOPING so, at least.

// City of Saints & Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson //

Is it bad that I JUST noticed that there’s a face on the cover?? WHAT IT’S HARDER TO TELL IN REAL LIFE. Kind of. Okay not really I guess. I honestly have NO IDEA what this book is about, but it seems like it’s not YA, so TECHNICALLY that means I’m off the hook for not recognizing it lol. The writing seems good, and I’m crossing my fingers that I won’t get lost reading this. Yeah um I get lost in plots very easily. In other words YA is my forever true love!! (NO THERE IS STILL HOPE)

Have YOU read any of these books/are they on your tbr?

    • THANKS!! Yeah I’m really excited to read all of these XD. I was JUST about to post a comment on your latest post hours ago when I must have gotten sidetracked and didn’t press the reply button haha. (I AM SO RANDOM) I’ll have to watch the movie for the Circle after reading the book!!
