Sunday Book Recommendations #8 [Mar 20, 2016]

Welcome back to another SUNDAY BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS!!

Sunday Book Recommendations

Sunday Book Recommendations is the weekly meme hosted by Raven @ Dreamy Addictions. This meme focus on recommending you guys some interesting books in which I think are wonderful. It includes recommending a book from three different genres.

Untitled designNumbers (2){SUPERNATURAL} Riders by Veronica Rossi

23430471Synopsis: Nothing but death can keep eighteen-year-old Gideon Blake from achieving his goal of becoming a U.S. Army Ranger. As it turns out, it does.

While recovering from the accident that most definitely killed him, Gideon finds himself with strange new powers and a bizarre cuff he can’t remove. His death has brought to life his real destiny. He has become War, one of the legendary four horsemen of the apocalypse.

Over the coming weeks, he and the other horsemen—Conquest, Famine, and Death—are brought together by a beautiful but frustratingly secretive girl to help save humanity from an ancient evil on the emergence.

They fail.

Now—bound, bloodied, and drugged—Gideon is interrogated by the authorities about his role in a battle that has become an international incident. If he stands any chance of saving his friends and the girl he’s fallen for—not to mention all of humankind—he needs to convince the skeptical government officials the world is in imminent danger.

But will anyone believe him?

  • You might be familiar with the 4 horsemen from the Book of Revelation (my fav in the Bible). Needless to say. I. Love. It!! Riders has a very unique POV and the ending was fabulously EPIC! Not only that, our protagonist here has a superb humor and just dang sassy, which makes everything much more amazing!

{HISTORICAL ROMANCE} Four Nights With the Duke by Eloisa James

21331590Synopsis: As a young girl, Emilia Gwendolyn Carrington told the annoying future Duke of Pindar that she would marry any man in the world before him—so years later she is horrified to realize that she has nowhere else to turn.

Evander Septimus Brody has his own reasons for agreeing to Mia’s audacious proposal, but there’s one thing he won’t give his inconvenient wife: himself.

Instead, he offers Mia a devil’s bargain… he will spend four nights a year with her. Four nights, and nothing more. And those only when she begs for them.

Which Mia will never do.

Now Vander faces the most crucial challenge of his life: he must seduce his own wife in order to win her heart—and no matter what it takes, this is the one battle he can’t afford to lose.

  • Talk about books that make you blush… I don’t know what happened, but I really got into Historical Romance this past week, like, a lot. And I just love them (especially those dresses in the cover). Nonetheless, Eloisa James’s works are exquisite!

Untitled designNumbers (4){YA CRIME} Hold Me Like A Breath by Tiffany Schmidt

18584521Synopsis: Penelope Landlow has grown up with the knowledge that almost anything can be bought or sold—including body parts. She’s the daughter of one of the three crime families that control the black market for organ transplants.

Penelope’s surrounded by all the suffocating privilege and protection her family can provide, but they can’t protect her from the autoimmune disorder that causes her to bruise so easily.

And in her family’s line of work no one can be safe forever.

All Penelope has ever wanted is freedom and independence. But when she’s caught in the crossfire as rival families scramble for prominence, she learns that her wishes come with casualties, that betrayal hurts worse than bruises, that love is a risk worth taking . . . and maybe she’s not as fragile as everyone thinks.

  • WHO IS IN FOR SOME ORGAN TRAFFICKING?! Hahaha, just kidding. But that’s what Hold Me Like A Breath about (not that intense though, since it’s a YA book). Not only that, this book is also a retelling. A RETELLING! Of Princess and the Bean, which is absolutely fascinating, right? 😉

  1. OMG, I’ve wanted to read Hold Me Like A Breath for so long and yet I still haven’t gotten to it! I had no idea it was a retelling of the Princess and the Bean but I knew it kind of had to do with the mafia which still sold it to me. What did you like about it?

    1. I enjoy it a lot! 🙂 The protagonist has some kind of disease that make her super fragile and easy to bruise (sth close to hemophilia. And don’t worry, it’s not really a spoiler 😛 ), which was inspired by the Princess & the Bean. The criminal organization is pretty awesome too! 😀
