I have been having the worst hay-fever all week – constant sneezing, watery eyes and wheezing. It’s horrible. Anyone else suffering for nature?
This month I was pretty good when it came to book buying…I was relatively restrained considering I’m sat at home doing not very much but online shopping. My point is today’s post is quite short. And I hope you enjoy! As always, if you’ve read any of these I want to know your thoughts below please 🙂
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing’s will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger—and a possible murderer—to inherit his vast fortune, one thing’s for sure: Sam Westing may be dead … but that won’t stop him from playing one last game!
I actually already read a couple chapters of this because omg doesn’t it sound amazing! So far it’s a little hard to follow as it really dumps you right into the action with about 80 characters you have to remember but the plot is very intriguing so far.
Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1) by Gail Carriger
Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations.
First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.
Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire–and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.
With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London’s high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?
I found this in my most recent Friday Finds post and just had to buy it!
Misty Falls (Benedicts #4) by Joss Stirling
Misty is a one-girl disaster zone. Born with a Savant ‘gift’ that means she can never tell a lie, her compulsive truth-telling gets her into trouble wherever she goes.
So when she meets Alex: gorgeous, confident, and impossibly charming, Misty instantly resolves to keep her distance . . . Someone so perfect could never be hers, surely?
But a dark shadow has fallen across the Savant community. A serial killer is stalking young people who have these special mental powers. Soon one of them will be taken to the edge of death . . . and beyond.
The Nightmare Affair (The Arkwell Acadmey #1) by Mindee Arnett
Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare.
Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker’s house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He’s hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn’t get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder.
Then Eli’s dream comes true.
Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli’s dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she’s up to and marks her as the next target.
I think this is the book I am most excited for, it gives me such Lynburn Legacy vibes (even down to the cover art!) and I pray it’s like that because it’s one of my all-time favourite series!
Here by Christine Zolendz
The world, as we know it, is gone.
And right now there are only two things I’m sure of:
One, those things that invaded us have my sister.
Two, I’m getting her back…or I’ll die trying.
New York City is destroyed. Less than a month ago, Earth was attacked, invaded by strange beings focused on demolishing our world. When my sister and I venture out to find help, it happens right in front of my eyes. My twin sister is plucked up off the street by one of the flying creatures. And I am hellbent on getting her back.
Zolendz is one of my all-time favoruite authors so I just had to pick this up!
Roadside by Angie Dokos
Zayne finds Serena’s lifeless body off the side of the road one morning. She has been beaten and left for dead. As she recovers, they become the best of friends. It doesn’t take long for Zayne’s feelings to grow stronger. Will the fear of ruining their friendship keep them from taking a chance on love?
I saw this on R&R Book Tour’s blog and loved the sound of it so I grabbed it – when its only £1 on kindle I couldn’t really say no!
That’s it for today’s post. Have you guys read any of these? If so which should I read first? Any I should have avoided? Tell me below cause I always want to know 🙂

A few years back, I’ve heard a lot of buzz about Soulless and I’ve been meaning to read it since but I find it quite hard to look for it in my local book shop. I guess, I should finally try purchasing it online. I think it also has a TV series? Anyway, I’m excited to know your thoughts on it. 🙂
