Welcome to a new series on our blog, where we spill all of our recent book purchases. Claire is going to start us off with her latest purchases since Christy is in the midst of reading her Christmas presents and has been on a no-buy.
Let’s get started!
I should start off by saying that a new year brings a new Goodreads goal, and I am determined to get to 50 books. I had to start off 2021 with a bang (sorry bank account!). So, what books have I bought so far this year? Keep on reading to gather some *bookspo* (book + inspo…ha..get it?). Moving on…
1. Killing November by Adriana Mather
Christy read Killing November and has been trying to get me to pull the trigger for months. Well, friends, January was the month I finally succumbed to the peer pressure. Here’s our full review of the book. I freaking LOVED it— the romance, the plot, the characters. EVERYTHING! The hype was real and I cannot wait to read book 2, which leads me to my next purchase…
November Adley’s life changes instantly when she arrives at Academy Absconditi. 1) She has no idea where the school is located. 2) Instead of math and english, she’s enrolled in knife throwing, body language reading and accents. 3) The students are ruthless and competitive to the point where November fears her physical safety.
This is Halloween, everybody scream! October is such a fun month. The leaves are changing (at least up north), Halloween decorations start, and people get ready to read and watch something spooky. Last year we came up with a list of 31 YA Books to Read Before Halloween. This year, we created a Halloween book tag.
Get ready for some mysteries, thrillers and horrors. After all, what’s Halloween season without a spooky book. What’s your favorite October read? Let us know in the comments!
1. Favorite Scary Book
Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Samantha wakes up from a horrible accident with amnesia. She has no idea how she came to be involved in the terrible accident that led to the death of her best friend, Cassie. Before the accident, Samantha had the perfect life: the hottest boyfriend, endless wealth, and a posse of friends. After she wakes up, Samantha tries to reinvent herself and grows closer to her brother’s best friend while the two try to piece together the night of Cassie’s death. This book had a very shocking ending full of many twist and turns. It kept us up at night after finishing just thinking about it. The mystery was engaging and left you dying (pun intended) to piece together the night of Cassie’s death. Definitely snag this one if you are looking for an excellent thriller with an equally stellar romance!
