(Soul Eaters #3)
by Eliza Crewe
Published: August 17, 2015

War is here.

Full-scale war has erupted between the Crusaders and demons and even Chi has to admit isn’t going well. Like any sensible rat, Meda’s eager to abandon the sinking ship but, unfortunately, her friends aren't nearly as pragmatic. Instead, Meda’s forced to try to keep them all alive until the dust settles.

As the Crusaders take more and more drastic measures, the tables turn and Meda suddenly finds herself in the role of voice of sanity. No one is more horrified than she is. When old enemies reappear as new allies and old friends become new enemies Meda has to decide—again—whose side she’s really on.

And then the Crusaders decide that Meda should go to Hell. Literally.

Can’t a monster ever catch a break?

COVER TREND: Purple, Pink, Orange

Purple, pink, orange -- that is my most favorite color combination of all, if the pinks and purples of this blog isn't a dead giveaway. I noticed that some of my most awaited books and favorite covers this year are pink-purple-orange so why not give them a pitch because of that ;)

Daughter of Dusk
(Midnight Thief #2)
by Livia Blackburne
Published: August 4, 2015
The Book Depository


After learning the truth about her bloodlines, Kyra can’t help but feel like a monster.

Though she’s formed a tentative alliance with the Palace, Kyra must keep her identity a secret or risk being hunted like the rest of her Demon Rider kin. Tristam and the imprisoned assassin James are among the few who know about her heritage, but when Tristam reveals a heartbreaking secret of his own, Kyra’s not sure she can trust him. And with James’s fate in the hands of the palace, Kyra fears that he will give her away to save himself.

As tensions rise within Forge's Council, and vicious Demon Rider attacks continue in surrounding villages, Kyra knows she must do something to save her city. But she walks a dangerous line between opposing armies: will she be able to use her link to the Demon Riders for good, or will her Makvani blood prove to be deadly?

In this spellbinding sequel to Midnight Thief, Kyra and Tristam face their biggest battle yet as they grapple with changing allegiances, shocking deceit, and vengeful opponents.

Book Cover Battle: US vs UK - Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Hello! Well, it's almost 4PM where I am and... I just woke up. I ALMOST had a heart attack. I was expecting it to be 11 or 12! Man. Don't get me wrong. I had a REALLY early start. So I slept around 8PM, woke up at 12 midnight, work (on my computer in my room), slept again around 9 in the morning and bam! Here we are. I live a weird life.

Anyway, today I am going to feature another US vs UK Book Cover Battle and it is going to be.... Uprooted by Naomi Novik.

I've heard so many AMAZING things about this book and I am dying to read it but why haven't I? Well, take a second to look at these covers:

Me and My Bookshelf (33): A Slightly Bigger July Book Haul

This is where I feature the books I received, bought, gifted or won that are recently added to my physical shelf, which means no e-books and the like, and recount epic book hauling stories. It is usually posted on Saturdays.

I got so many books this month I kind of forgot what they were or even where they all are. Since I don’t have any shelf to put them I just put them back in their packaging and stash them anywhere I have space, which meant I had to go hunt for them before I made this post. Fun times.

OKAY. So I have way more books than last month’s haul. Yes, I spent WAY more than my limit but 20 books for less than $45? Oh yeah. I am a bargain shopper. The only book in this haul I bought in its original price is Ruin and Rising. I love buying and collecting books and if I don’t take the chance of buying them when they’re cheap, you’re going to find me begging on the street for more books. I mean... food.

July 2015 Reads + Monthly Recap

July was a blur. I can't even remember all the stuff I spent my time doing. All I know is that I finally got out of my reading slump (yay!) but it wasn't my best blogging month. I haven't even stopped by people's blogs lately but I am going to remedy that in a while. I've been blogging a lot this week though and have 5 posts scheduled for next week! How awesome is that? It's actually a good thing since I need my focus somewhere else in the coming weeks. August is going to be another busy month.

But for now, here are the books I read this July:
