COVER REVEAL + GIVEAWAY – Brave (A Wicked Saga #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I absolutely LOVE this series!  So of course I’ve been dying to see how it all ends with the final book!  It’s coming out December 11th, yay!  And if you haven’t heard me gush about this series before, well it’s seductive, insanely addicting and I laugh so hard that I have tears pouring down my face.  So check out the cover for the final book below, there’s also a link and information if you want to order a signed book and don’t forget to enter a fabulous giveaway!

Now here’s the beautiful cover…..

 

Synopsis:

Ivy Morgan hasn’t been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It’s more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine… and it’s coming between her and the man she’s fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart.

If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels, and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies. Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves–and, ultimately, to save herself.

Because behind ever evil fae Prince, there’s a Queen…

Josh from The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
* Review  * Amazon * Goodreads *

“I’ve never had someone try to do this before.”
“What, break your skull open? I’ll use a hammer if I have to.”
“Get to know me. And I never thought it would be you.”
“Do you want me to stop?”
I almost can’t hear his reply, it’s so quiet. “No.” 

Josh, even though his dialogue with Lucy is mostly hilarious, is so heartbreakingly sad on the inside that it kills me. I just love him so much-he adores Lucy, but has so much fun convincing her otherwise. This is naturally one of my favorite books ever.


Somebody Nobody’ (Can’t say name, even though it’s obvious) from Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum
* Amazon * Goodreads *

SN: you know what I think about sometimes?
Me: What?
SN: you know that piece of hair that always falls into your eyes—the not-quite-a-bang piece? I want to be able to tuck it behind your ear. I want to be able to do that. I want to meet you when I feel comfortable enough with you to do that.

I LOVED THIS BOOK. I loved this book beyond words. SN just…he just…ugh. He was so adorable, trying to help the main character out. I promise-you can’t be disappointed by this guy.

Declan from Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
* Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Sometimes I think fate conspires against us.  Or maybe fate conspires with us.

Declan was dark, his own worst enemy, and he was so tortured from his past. Especially since he placed the blame of an event on his own shoulders. Not only was his home life troubling, but he was an outcast at school. Yet he had this ability to radiate power, and he was sexy as hell. So Declan easily broke my heart, while also making me fall for him. And when he was completely honest in his letters to Juliet, he took my breath away with his words. It was so different than how he acted around so many others.


Sean from Shag Lake by Susan McEachern
* Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

But when she walked into the backyard this evening, I actually went weak in the knees. I had that moment when the world suddenly stopped turning and everyone at the party faded away into a blurry background, leaving just the two of us. I could barely breathe.
Get her out of your head , Eastman. She’s still off-limits.
I can’t offer her a future, and she deserves nothing less.

Sean was *starts wiping tears from eyes because he was so beautifully perfect* someone I fell completely in love with.  He was loyal, seductive, protective, playful and ever so sexy.  Yet because of something that I can’t say, he keeps the happiness he wants not within reach.  Which completely broke my heart for him.


Rob from In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad #1) by Tana French
* Review  * Amazon * Goodreads *

So I’ll only say this : rarely did I feel that the character’s personality – whether they’re likeable or not – was so besides the point as when reading this book. Is Rob a jerk? Maybe, but I don’t care, he’s real, all of them are real to me. I care so much, oh my god, do I care for him still.

 


Luca from Vendetta (Blood for Blood #1) by Catherine Doyle
* Review  * Amazon * Goodreads *

The books aren’t that great, admittedly, but I’d follow him anywhere, so there’s that.

 

Misha from Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms #1) by Morgan Rhodes
* Amazon * Goodreads *

I’m actually not a huge fan of tortured boys, but I ADORED Magnus from Falling Kingdoms! He’s the perfect balance between sassy, devious, and tortured! I like to think of him as an antihero.

 

Giveaway:

*There will be 6 winners, and prizes will be sent via Amazon Kindle. The first winner drawn will get to chose which book they want first, and so on. Prizes are ebooks of Adorkable, Illuminae, Six of Crows, The Fill-In Boyfriend, Adorkable, Good Girl & Broken Skies.*

Misha from Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas
* Review  * Amazon * Goodreads *

I part my lips, running them over the lip ring and savoring the feel as he groans and digs his fingers into my thighs. I tighten my legs around him, needing to feel him.
“Bitch,” he whispers.
“Loser.”

Misha is brutal to Ryen.  He’s hurtful, mean and viscous to her with his words.  The scenes and situations between the two of them would leave my mouth open.  But Ryen has this sexuality that is subtle and insanely addicting.  He came off not only confident but intoxicating too.  Whether it was the looks he would give, or the words he would choose to use, he always left me wanting more.  And Ryen couldn’t help but be pulled in again and again, no matter how bad Misha hurt her.  The scenes between the two of them were beyond sexy, and so, so, so good!

Talis from The Scorpion Rules (Prisoners of Peace #1) by Erin Bow
* Review  * Amazon * Goodreads *

Yes, he’s a villain, so what.

Darkling from Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy #1) by Leigh Bardugo
* Amazon * Goodeads *

Um. Darkling. I don’t even need to explain it.. but incase anyone needs a reminder, go read the table scene in Ruin and Rising…

Misha/Masen from Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas
* Review  * Amazon * Goodreads *

Ryen. The beautiful, perfect girl who’s so different from all the others. I run my hand over my forehead and through my hair, my throat tightening into a knot and my eyes burning. Fuck. I put the pen to the paper and scrawl what my goddamn heart can only whisper. I miss you every day, I write. You’re my favorite place.

Oh Masen Masen Masen…or Misha? Lol. Doesn’t matter. This. Boy. Is a TOTAL. Prick. Oh Gahd I love him so.

 


 

Declan from Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
* Amazon * Goodreads *

I need her. More than anything right now. I need her. And because of everything between us, I can’t have her.

Declan was just…wonderful. Scarred, emotional, and-Err. This sounds a bit messed up of me to be excited about his problems. But if loving Declan is wrong, I don’t WANT to be right! 😛asdf

BOOK REVIEW + GIVEAWAY – Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

BOOK REVIEW + GIVEAWAY – Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

Black Bird of the Gallows is definitely one favorite books from this year! So check out my 5 Star Review below and enter a fabulous giveaway, enjoy!

BOOK REVIEW + GIVEAWAY – Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg KasselBlack Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel
Purchase on: AmazoniBooks
Book Depository
Add to: Goodreads

Synopsis:

A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.

Angie Dovage can tell there’s more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can’t imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece―and he’s not human.

What's more, she knows something most don't. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that’s only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.

Review:

Black Bird of the Gallows was hauntingly addicting, and I found myself completely mesmerized as the story unfolded.  The creatures and curses were not only unique, but an eerie combination that at times terrified me.  There were so many moments of subtle humor that had me laughing out loud and kept a smile on my face.  And when you add to that characters that won my heart, well Black Bird of the Gallows easily became one of my favorite books from this year!

What are you?” The question slips out— suddenly, vitally relevant.
For a moment , we just stare at each other, our mingling breath making white puffs in the cold air. He drops his gaze. I know, then, the answer is horrible. He’s kept his secrets for a reason, and that reason may be as scarring as the scene before us.

The book started out with Angie learning she has new neighbors.  And her first interaction with Reece, a boy about her age, had so many unexplainable moments.  He was speaking to a man whose face constantly changed, crows seemed to follow yet be playful with him, and he reminded her of something she couldn’t quite pinpoint.  Despite all that, they started towards a tentative friendship.  While there was a few bumps in the road, the way it developed felt so sweet and innocent.  But there was also moments between the two of them that made my heart race.  And I’m not one to usually talk about butterflies, but I SO did have them!  Watching Angie and Reece together made me feel like I was falling in love for the first time all over again.

I hold my breath and watch the crow glide away. It melts into the blackness, silent as a ghost. Lonely as the night.
Dark as a boy’s eyes.

Yet their relationship was forbidden.  It shouldn’t have grown the way it did.  It seemed like they were destined for broken hearts.  And because of them growing closer, creatures took interest in Angie.  That could only lead to horrific things.  You see, Reece’s arrival in her town was a horrible sign, since he’s a harbinger of death.  Once he was in her town, there was a shift in the demeanor of the town’s people.  Violence and chaotic events started to become more commonplace.  Then it all started to take an even darker turn.  I was terrified yet intrigued with how it would all play out.  Especially in regards to the bees.  When I fully understood the bees *shudders*, I realized that I will forever be haunted by them.  I can’t ever look at a honeybee normally again. *sobs*

He leans his terrible face close. Way too close . “He watches you. Why?”
My heart smashes against my ribs. His nightmare face is inches from mine, but no breath comes from that changing mouth. No puff of white in the cold darkness. Only the disorienting scent of honey and a skin-crawling drone that sounds an awful lot like bees. A lot of bees.

And while I LOVED the storyline, I was even more obsessed with Reece and Angie.  Oh my gosh you guys, Reece may be one of the most tortured souls I’ve ever read about.  He gutted me.  He broke my heart and then shattered it into the tiniest of pieces.  But he also had the ability to completely captivate my attention and melt my heart.  And did I mention he was full of secrets?  He was such a complex soul and was deliciously addicting!  I loved, loved, loved Reece!

Reece goes perfectly still. “You are important to me,” he says finally. “More important than anything any cursed creature thinks he could do to me.”

And then there was Angie.  From the moment Angie stated that she preferred footwear that wasn’t practical, I just knew her and I were going to be bffs!  But seriously, she had such a huge heart and a good head on her shoulders, I easily liked Angie right away.  While she had a troubled past, she tried her hardest to not let that define her.  And I was so grateful to see she had a wonderful support system with her two best friends and father.  The relationship she had with her father was realistic, and I loved that he played an active role in her life.  It was so refreshing to see that in a YA book!

His lips brush against mine in the whisper of a kiss. It’s different from any other. It tastes of certainty and sadness and promises that can never be made.

With curses, love, friendship, trust, and sacrifice, Black Bird of the Gallows truly had it all!  It was a page turner, it was impossible to put down, it made me sob out of happiness and sorrow.  And did I mention it reads as a standalone?!  So now I will patiently wait until I can read every single future release from this author.  She has made me a fan for life, and I’m so grateful I got to pick up this book and discover what was inside!

Ryen from Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas
* Review  * Amazon * Goodreads *

Fat tears spill over, and I feel a weight on my shoulders. It’s not Trey. It’s not Lyla. It’s me. I don’t know who I’m supposed to be.

Ryen wasn’t perfect-but maybe that’s why I loved her so much. She made mistakes and wasn’t exactly who she portrayed herself to be…but she isn’t half as oblivious as they all think she is-Total underdog. I love her. 

 


Catherine from Heartless by Marissa Meyer
  * Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

“I do not want his generosity, or his kindness, or any other favors!” 
Her mother sneered. “Then you are a fool.” 
“Good. I’ve become rather fond of fools.”

Ever wonder what a woman scorned looks like? Look no further. This book will break your heart….but Cath and Jest are worth reading about. Cath was a sweet girl who wanted nothing more than to bake…it just wasn’t in the cards. *Tee hee* I really loved her personality throughout the whole book-I just wish it had a better ending! PS. Jest was a book boyfriend-I just didn’t have enough room!

Aerity from The Great Hunt (Eurona Duology #1) by Wendy Higgins
  * Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Determination rang out inside her, clearing away all doubts and fears before they had a chance to surface. She had no time for any of that.

Princess Aerity was brave, strong, honorable, and underneath it all she was compassionate and humbling. She was everything that would make a fair Queen one day!  The challenges and hardships she faced seemed all consuming at times. And I easily found my heart breaking and struggling right along with hers.   Aerity will always be one of my favorites!


Aria from Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky #1) by Veronica Rossi
  * Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Her life was in danger. Her mission was in danger. She drew a breath and stood. She wouldn’t let herself fail.

Aria made me so proud with not only how far she had grown throughout this trilogy, but also with her strategizing.  I was actually clapping out loud at certain moments lol!  And I loved that she was a fighter through and through and never gave in easily!  I had so much respect for her!
