May Book Haul
I was naughty. I know.
1. Overbite by Meg Cabot.
This is the second novel in Meg Cabot's Insatiable Duology. Mean has the ability to predict how everyone she meets will die. Then she meets Lucien, the guy who death she can't see. For the first time she can see herself having a future with someone but it doesn't exactly go to plan.
2. This Savage Song by V.E Schwab.
OMG. OMG. OMG. More V.E Schwab-y goodness. Kate and August are about to inherit a divided city and all the problems that come with monsters and humans trying to live together. Chaos ensues.
3. Unbecoming by Jenny Downham.
This sounds like a cross between contemporary and a thriller. Secrets to be revealed, forbidden romance and all the wonderfulness.
4. Keys to the Repository by Melissa de la Cruz.
A novella from the wonderful Blue Bloods Series. A vampire/ incarnate angel type breed of people are among the highest class in society and they're being hunted.
5. Gates of Paradise by Melissa de la Cruz.
The seventh novel in the Blue Bloods series.
6. The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde.
Book characters that carry on living once you put the book down. IT'S TOY STORY IN BOOK FORMAT.
7. The Vegetarian by Han Kang.
The Man Booker Prize winner of 2016. I know very little except a lady may turn into a tree?
8. The Last Star by Rick Yancey.
The last novel in The 5th Wave series. The others have invaded earth and are systematically wiping out the humans in a series of wave. The fourth has been and gone, the 5th is on its way but no-one knows what it is.
9. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas.
This needs no introduction.
10. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
A book that follows the sidekicks not the 'chosen one.'
11. Uprooted by Naomi Novik
I pretty much know nothing about this novel except for it has a lot of Russian folklore in it and magic. Sold!
12. The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater.
The fourth book in the Raven Cycle.
13. The Girl who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente.
Basically, my colleague placed this in my hands and said you need it.
14. The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan.
Apollo has lost his powers and has been sent to live amongst the humans. With the help of the people in camp half blood he must try to regain his powers.
Those are all the books I bought in May!
