Howdy my dear muffins! It’s been almost 1 year since my last SBR post… (Lazy? Me?? Pfft what are you talking about?! *nervous laugh*) And I desperately miss all of you, of course! So TADA. Behold my late Sunday Book Recommendations post, and you can find more info right below this.
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.
Half Bad by Sally Green
Wanted by no one.
Hunted by everyone.
Sixteen-year-old Nathan lives in a cage: beaten, shackled, trained to kill. In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live amongst humans, Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world’s most terrifying and violent witch, Marcus. Nathan’s only hope for survival is to escape his captors, track down Marcus, and receive the three gifts that will bring him into his own magical powers—before it’s too late. But how can Nathan find his father when there is no one safe to trust, not even family, not even the girl he loves?
Half Bad is an international sensation and the start of a brilliant trilogy: a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive.
I found this amazing read through the no-less-amazing Cait over Paper Fury! It was such a magical and fast-paced read, and the book itself is just so unique. There is no way you can put in down once you have started.
-YA Thriller Romance-
Every Breath by Ellie Marney
When James Mycroft drags Rachel Watts off on a night mission to the Melbourne Zoo, the last thing she expects to find is the mutilated body of Homeless Dave, one of Mycroft’s numerous eccentric friends. But Mycroft’s passion for forensics leads him to realize that something about the scene isn’t right–and he wants Watts to help him investigate the murder.
While Watts battles her attraction to bad-boy Mycroft, he’s busy getting himself expelled and clashing with the police, becoming murder suspect number one. When Watts and Mycroft unknowingly reveal too much to the cold-blooded killer, they find themselves in the lion’s den–literally. A trip to the zoo will never have quite the same meaning to Rachel Watts again…
YA Thriller Romance? What is that Mariana?! Well, I’m glad you ask. Basically this book is the perfect combination for thriller lovers, Sherlockians, romance lovers, YA readers, etc. YOU NAME IT PEEPS! Basically this book is just magical and fantastic and probably one of THE best Sherlock Holmes I’ve ever read. Now what are you doing here?! Go and grab yourself a copy quick quick (ahhh… I mean it would be nice if you stay for the last reccommendation *wink*)
Shutter by Courtney Alameda
Micheline Helsing is a tetrachromat—a girl who sees the auras of the undead in a prismatic spectrum. As one of the last descendants of the Van Helsing lineage, she has trained since childhood to destroy monsters both corporeal and spiritual: the corporeal undead go down by the bullet, the spiritual undead by the lens. With an analog SLR camera as her best weapon, Micheline exorcises ghosts by capturing their spiritual energy on film. She’s aided by her crew: Oliver, a techno-whiz and the boy who developed her camera’s technology; Jude, who can predict death; and Ryder, the boy Micheline has known and loved forever.
When a routine ghost hunt goes awry, Micheline and the boys are infected with a curse known as a soulchain. As the ghostly chains spread through their bodies, Micheline learns that if she doesn’t exorcise her entity in seven days or less, she and her friends will die. Now pursued as a renegade agent by her monster-hunting father, Leonard Helsing, she must track and destroy an entity more powerful than anything she’s faced before . . . or die trying.
Lock, stock, and lens, she’s in for one hell of a week.
So… YA Horror means it’s not really that scary, but it definitely can give you the chills. AND I LOVE IT! Seriously this book is perfect for a stormy night, with fast-paced action and mesmerizing writing. Shutter is just a perfect read for anyone who is looking for something to get lost in.
