🌸 Hi babes! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you my TBR of the month of October, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. As you know, the previous month, although I enjoyed the ones I read, it wasn’t my best reading month, so I’m excited for this month, because I want to read it ALL. I’m definitely in the mood to read a lot, in fact, ALREADY FINISH MY FIRST BOOK OF THE MONTH!, yes, I know, who am I, right ?. But still, I do not want to exaggerate with this because, you know, I can fail again and that would be humiliating lol. What I’ll be doing this month is simply read what I can, I will not pushing myself that much, but since I feel very eager to read and have had this successful start, I’ve prepared a great list of which I’m very excited, and I can’t wait to show you.
I have 8 books in my TBR for this month: I have a couple of ARCs, some New Releases, I’ll be Finishing a series, a Re-reading and a Short Novel. I’m super excited to tell you what I’ll be reading, but first I wanted to mention that some of the books that will be in this TBR are the same ones that have been in the previous one but I could’t read them, so I wanted to add them here. Now, without further ado, let’s START!🌸
ARCs of the Month
Our Bloody Pearl (These Treacherous Tides #1) by D.N. Bry
The ocean is uncontrollable and dangerous. But to the sirens who swim the warm island waters, it’s a home more than worth protecting from the humans and their steam-propelled ships. Between their hypnotic voices and the strength of their powerful tails, sirens have little to fear.
That is, until the ruthless pirate captain, Kian, creates a device to cancel out their songs.
Perle was the first siren captured, and while all since have either been sold or killed, Kian still keeps them prisoner. Though their song is muted and their tail paralyzed, Perle’s hope for escape rekindles as another pirating vessel seizes Kian’s ship. This new captain seems different, with his brilliant smile and his promises that Kian will never again be Perle’s master. But he’s still a human, and a captor in his own way. The compassion he and his rag-tag human family show can’t be sincere… or can it?
Soon it becomes clear that Kian will hunt Perle relentlessly, taking down any siren in her path. As the tides turn, Perle must decide whether to run from Kian forever, or ride the forming wave into battle, hoping their newfound human companions will fight with them.
As I said in my previous TBR, I really want to read this book, first, because it sounds amazing and I love the promise of diversity within a pirate story and second, because the author has been so kind to send me a copy to review, and that means the world for me, so surely I’ll be reading and reviewing it this month, I’m excited!
The Darkest Star (Origin #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
When seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher is caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can mingle freely, she meets Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she initially assumes is a Luxen…but he is in fact something much more powerful. Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she’d only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head…
#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the universe of the Lux in this brand new series, featuring beloved characters both new and old.
It’s an honor for me to have this ARC, because I honestly adore Jennifer and as many of you, she has also marked a stage in my life with her books, so I’m excited to read it. Sadly I couldn’t read it before its publication date but, well, I’ll be doing it now. I know that this new story takes place within the same Lux universe, and I remember loving that saga, so I’m very excited to read it
The Rule of One (The Rule of One #1) by Ashley Saunders & Leslie Saunders
In their world, telling the truth has become the most dangerous crime of all.
In the near-future United States, a one-child policy is ruthlessly enforced. Everyone follows the Rule of One. But Ava Goodwin, daughter of the head of the Texas Family Planning Division, has a secret—one her mother died to keep and her father has helped to hide for her entire life.
She has an identical twin sister, Mira.
For eighteen years Ava and Mira have lived as one, trading places day after day, maintaining an interchangeable existence down to the most telling detail. But when their charade is exposed, their worst nightmare begins. Now they must leave behind the father they love and fight for their lives.
Branded as traitors, hunted as fugitives, and pushed to discover just how far they’ll go in order to stay alive, Ava and Mira rush headlong into a terrifying unknown.
This book sounds great, it promises a dystopic future where it is not allowed to have more than one child but Ava Goodwin has a secret and is that he has a twin sister called Mira and when their secret is discovered they must leave everything they know to fight for their lives. And here’s the cool thing about it: this is not only a science fiction book about twin sisters, but it’s also written by twin sisters, which I found so interesting and I loved it, I can’t wait to read it
In The Afterlight (The Darkest Minds #3) by Alexandra Bracken
Ruby can’t look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government’s attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers. Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds.
They are armed only with a volatile secret: proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IAAN, the disease that has killed most of America’s children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained. But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the “rehabilitation camps” housing thousands of other Psi kids.
Meanwhile, reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire.
Again another of the books I should have reading in the previous month but I didn’t, so this month will finally happen, I’m about to start reading it, I really want to because I LOVE this trilogy, now quartet, so I don’t have much to say, simply so happy with this re-reading that is making me feel a lot of things
