Hello my pack!
It seems we have made it to Friday once again. Sorry this post is going up so late, I was super busy being a slave to my job, (not really because I love my job), and I finally finished reading Three Dark Crowns. I think I may be able to swing a book review for it on Sunday because it was oh so good! It was everything I was expecting and more.
Anywho, tonight’s post will be five book series I love and adore. As most of you know all books hold a special place in my heart, but these books have made an impact on me in more ways the one. I am rather tired from this week’s trial and errors, so I will be listing the series and adding their book summaries from the Barnes & Noble site. Yes, I know I am being a lazy mofo when it comes to this but I promise I will make it up to you all on Sunday!
All of these series are amazing in their own right. I don’t not favor one over the other simply because they are all unique in their story lines, plots, and characters. I hate when people lump books (and other things like movies, anime, and music) together into specific generalized categorizes. A book can be paranormal but still have elements of fantasy or romance. So on and so forth, so lets try to give author’s a little more credit here people! Enough of the witty banter. Let’s get to these books already.
1. Halo, Hades, & Heaven (The Halo Trilogy) by Alexandra Adornetto
“Three angels are sent down to bring good to the world: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. But she is the most human, and when she is romantically drawn to a mortal boy, the angels fear she will not be strong enough to save anyone—especially herself—from the Dark Forces.
Is love a great enough power against evil?”
2. Hush Hush, Crescendo, Silence & Finale (The Hush Hush Saga) by Becca Fitzpatrick
“For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.”
3. Shiver, Linger, Forever & Sinner (Wolves of Mercy Falls/Shiver Series) by Maggie Stiefvater
“For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf–her wolf–is a chilling presence she can’t seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It’s her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human–or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.”
4. Wings, Spells, Illusions, Destined & Arabesque (The Laurel Series) by Aprilynne Pike
“Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.
Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.
Laurel’s life is the very definition of normal . . . until the morning when she wakes up to discover a flower blooming from her back. As it turns out, nothing in Laurel’s life is what it seems. Now, with the help of an alluring faerie sentry who holds the key to her true past, Laurel must race to save her human family from the centuries-old faerie enemies who walk among them.”
5. Wither, Fever, & Sever (The Chemical Garden Trilogy) by Lauren DeStefano
“By age sixteen, Rhine Ellery has four years left to live. A botched effort to create a perfect race has left all males born with a lifespan of 25 years, and females a lifespan of 20 years—leaving the world in a state of panic. Geneticists seek a miracle antidote to restore the human race, desperate orphans crowd the population, crime and poverty have skyrocketed, and young girls are being kidnapped and sold as polygamous brides to bear more children.
When Rhine is sold as a bride, she vows to do all she can to escape. Yet her husband, Linden, is hopelessly in love with her, and Rhine can’t bring herself to hate him as much as she’d like to. He opens her to a magical world of wealth and illusion she never thought existed, and it almost makes it possible to ignore the clock ticking away her short life. But Rhine quickly learns that not everything in her new husband’s strange world is what it seems. Her father-in-law, an eccentric doctor bent on finding the antidote, is hoarding corpses in the basement; her fellow sister wives are to be trusted one day and feared the next; and Rhine has no way to communicate to her twin brother that she is safe and alive.
Together with one of Linden’s servants, Gabriel, Rhine attempts to escape just before her seventeenth birthday. But in a world that continues to spiral into anarchy, is there any hope for freedom?”
