Hello friends! It’s the third Monday of February. I hope you guys have been enjoying the month so far and haven’t been too bored. I haven’t got a lot of reading done because school sucks, and that is why this post is getting out so late. If you have been keeping up on goodreads, you know that I have been trying to finish “Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince” and I am currently on page 378 and have been enjoying it thus far. I should change my name to The Procrastinating Blogger because that’s all I’ve been up to these days. I’m currently having my manager/best friend/unpaid therapist write this post because I am doing a math assignment that was due last Friday. Thanks again to Ayah for putting up with me even though it is a holiday. I have received three packages in the mail since last Mondays post and the books are from the authors themselves and my reviews for them will be out in the coming months.

The books I have received are as follows:

The Dark In Between by Elizabeth Hrib

The Dark In-Between

A terrible accident brings sixteen-year-old Casey Everett’s life to a halt—literally. Pronounced dead on the beach during the year-end harbor party, Casey’s sudden return to the living is shadowed by the drowning of her best friend, Liddy.

Eager to avoid the rumors that follow her, Casey returns home for the summer, only to find that Liddy won’t let her go. A series of violent nightmares and soulless whispers threaten to drive her mad, but when she watches a boy fall from the sky, she suspects she’s actually crossed that line.

That is until Red—an angel fallen to earth to regain his wings—takes her to Limbo: a place that exists somewhere between the living and the dead. Now, in order to save her best friend, Casey must learn to walk these mysterious and dangerous paths or else risk losing Liddy to something worse than death.

Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit by Valerie Dunsmore

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit

Ten-year-old Lily Nelson lives with her mother, sister, and the wellspring of her hatred: her father, Henry. Since Henry returned to their lives after an unexplained eight-year absence, the family has been uprooted, both physically and emotionally, moving from the mystical forests of Nakusp to the soulless suburbs of Vancouver, BC. There, an old but familiar darkness creeps into the household, unraveling their bonds and manifesting as rage, addiction, and madness. The darkness brings a shadow that attaches itself to Lily’s mother—a shadow that only Lily seems to see.

Lily discovers she has magic in her being when she hears whispers coming from an old book. Maybe now she’ll be able to fix her broken life. Blaming Henry for her family’s misery, Lily plans to use her newfound power to uncover Henry’s dark past and banish him forever. When she visits her aunt’s cabin in Nakusp, her abilities intensify, and Lily begins to lose control.

With magic in Lily’s bones, and ancestral trauma in the long line of women before her, Lily teeters on the edge of chaos while running out of time. She must learn—with the forest as her loving but neutral guide—the cost of hatred, the nature of healing, and the delicate balance between saving her loved ones and saving herself.

A Touch Of Death by Rebecca Crunden

A Touch of Death (The Outlands Pentalogy #1)

A thousand years in the future, the last of humanity live inside the walls of the totalitarian Kingdom of Cutta. The rich live in Anais, the capital city of Cutta, sheltered from the famine and disease which ravage the rest of the Kingdom. Yet riches and power only go so far, and even Anaitians can be executed. It is only by the will of the King that Nate Anteros, son of the King’s favourite, is spared from the gallows after openly dissenting. But when he’s released from prison, Nate disappears.

A stark contrast, Catherine Taenia has spent her entire life comfortable and content. The daughter of the King’s Hangman and in love with Thom, Nate’s younger brother, her life has always been easy, ordered and comfortable. That is, where it doesn’t concern Nate. His actions sullied not only his future, but theirs. And unlike Thom, Catherine has never forgiven him.

Two years pass without a word, and then one night Nate returns. But things with Nate are never simple, and when one wrong move turns their lives upside down, the only thing left to do is run where the King’s guards cannot find them – the Outlands. Those wild, untamed lands which stretch around the great walls of the Kingdom, filled with mutants and rabids.

That’s all for today. Hopefully next Monday I will post on time. I hope you guys have been enjoying these Monday posts since I put a lot of effort into them and blogging is not an easy job especially since I am in high school and since online school has started the workload has increased exponentially, but luckily I have great friends to help me along the way and they are keeping me mentally stable. Wish me luck on my upcoming assignments and exams. I’ll see y’all next week! Stay safe and hydrated. Peace Out Homies! ✌️
