Waiting on Wednesday (4/19/2018)

Title:  White Rabbit

Author: Caleb Roehrig (Goodreads Author

Expected Publication: April 24th 2018

Publisher: Feiwel Friends

Goodreads Summary:

Rufus Holt is having the worst night of his life. It begins with the reappearance of his ex-boyfriend, Sebastian—the guy who stomped his heart out like a spent cigarette. Just as Rufus is getting ready to move on, Sebastian turns up out of the blue, saying they need to “talk.” Things couldn’t get much worse, right?

But then Rufus gets a call from his sister April, begging for help. And then he and Sebastian find her, drenched in blood and holding a knife, beside the dead body of her boyfriend, Fox Whitney.

April swears she didn’t kill Fox—but Rufus knows her too well to believe she’s telling him the whole truth. April has something he needs, though, and her price is his help. Now, with no one to trust but the boy he wants to hate yet can’t stop loving, Rufus has one night to prove his sister’s innocence…or die trying.

I read Roehrig’s first book Last Seen Leaving and really loved his writing style. I really enjoyed all of the plot twists that he wove into his story, mainly because I didn’t see them coming and these days that’s a little rare to find. His second book sounds like it will be on par with plot twists and excellent writing so I will definitely be picking this book up next week!

What are you waiting for this week?

Goodreads Monday (4/9/2018)

Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Lauren @Page Turner,  and the idea is to post a book that’s on your TBR pile and show it off. This is a great way to show off books I have not yet managed to read!


This week I have chosen:

Title:  The Sun is Also a Star 

Author: Nicola Yoon (Goodreads Author)

Published: November 1st 2016 by Delacorte Press

Goodreads Summary:

Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

This book has been on my TBR shelf since November 2016!! I recently watched Everything Everything and it almost makes me want to not read the book, but I know that books are 10 times better than the movies 9 out of 10 times. I’m hoping that I will like The Sun is Also a Star more than Everything Everything, but I’ve only really heard mix reviews about this author in general. You either love her or dislike her. Which category are you?

Title:  The Fates Divide (Carve the Mark #2)

Author: Veronica Roth (Goodreads Author)

Expected Publication: April 10th 2018

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Goodreads Summary:

In the second book of the Carve the Mark duology, globally bestselling Divergent author Veronica Roth reveals how Cyra and Akos fulfill their fates. The Fates Divide is a richly imagined tale of hope and resilience told in four stunning perspectives.

Fate brought them together. Now it will divide them.

The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable.

Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra’s family. And when Cyra’s father, Lazmet Noavek—a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead—reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever.

As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost. For Cyra, that could mean taking the life of the man who may—or may not—be her father. For Akos, it could mean giving his own. In a stunning twist, the two will discover how fate defines their lives in ways most unexpected.

I just found out that this series is a duology (I don’t know how I went all year after the first book was released not knowing this!) So that means I can buy both books and just binge read them both and not have to suffer from book hangover!

Title:  Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity #2)

Author: Victoria Schwab (Goodreads Author)

Published: June 13th 2017 by Greenwillow Books

Goodreads Summary:

THE WORLD IS BREAKING. AND SO ARE THEY.

KATE HARKER isn’t afraid of monsters. She hunts them. And she’s good at it.

AUGUST FLYNN once yearned to be human. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost.

THE WAR HAS BEGUN.

THE MONSTERS ARE WINNING.

Kate will have to return to Verity. August will have to let her back in. And a new monster is waiting—one that feeds on chaos and brings out its victims’ inner demons.

Which will be harder to conquer: the monsters they face, or the monsters within?

Happy day after Easter! I hope yours was spent having fun with family whether you celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ or not! We went to church and saw so many cute babies (so I didn’t have to worry if mine started talking during the service, I could just blame another one lol). We then gave baby S her very first Easter basket full of goodies, and she enjoyed playing with the plastic eggs filled with nothing more than her new toys. Oh well, what can you do. Our night ended with the hubs grilling, so overall we had a pretty good day.

This week I chose Our Dark Duet because it has been sitting on my shelf since last summer! I need to finish this duology ASAP, even if that is so that I can only clear off some space on my ever growing TBR shelf.

What did you do yesterday? What is on your TBR shelf this week?

Here’s a pic of one of my pups celebrating Easter =)
