Sneak Peeks: Biblio 411s (July 2016)

I’ve done some reading while I focused on health issues and these are only some of the books I’ve read. I’m hoping to most, if not all, of what I read, but I don’t know if my brain can keep up!

So for now, watch out for these:

Just One Night (Just One Day #2.5) by Gayle FormanBlog_JustOneNight

Just One Day followed Allyson’s quest to reunite with Willem; Just One Year chronicled the pair’s year apart from Willem’s perspective. Now, back together at last, this delectable e-novella reveals the couple’s final chapter.

I just about flipped out when I saw that Gayle Forman made a novella following the day Willem and Allyson meet up. I just had to read it and I can’t wait to review it. And since I’ve reviewed Just One Day and Just One Year it’s only fitting I top off the series.

Glory Through Sin (Vampire Jay #1)  by Jakobi KidBlog_GloryThroughSin

Jay Blutschonden is fifteen years old, he’s white, middle class and hopeless. Well, middle class in the sense that his parents aren’t part of the fortune five hundred like the rest of his classmates, instead they have to work their proverbial butts off to keep him and his older sister in the very elitist private school known as November High. He struggles to keep his head above water in a fringe society where money talks and power walks. He is the leper in a room full of Gods, and as such, his sex life as you can imagine is just as futile. So, one day, Jay is tricked into competing in November High’s age old tradition,
The November Games.

Looking for something different to read, and since I’m not a book snob ;), a friend thought I should give this one a try. It fits the criteria of different and I’m looking forward to putting my thoughts to post. Stay tuned!

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1)

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk        past. Blue never sees them–until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.

The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2)

If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take?

Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself.

One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.

And sometimes he’s not the only one who wants those things.

Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle #3)

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4)

Nothing living is safe. Nothing dead is to be trusted.

For years, Gansey has been on a quest to find a lost king. One by one, he’s drawn others into this quest: Ronan, who steals from dreams; Adam, whose life is no longer his own; Noah, whose life is no longer a lie; and Blue, who loves Gansey… and is certain she is destined to kill him.

Gosh, I binge-read this whole series and wasn’t disappointed. The thing for me now is, do I review it one by one or as the finish product. They each deserve their own review so, crosses fingers, hopefully I can get them all done.
