Some things are worth waiting for… Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself. Some things are worth experiencing… Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed. Some things should never be kept quiet… But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her? And some things are worth fighting for…

As long as the sun’s shining, shit can’t be that bad.

May Wrap Up

May wrap up
GUUUUUYYYS, MAY WAS A GOOD ONE. Not only did I finally get some reading done, I also had a REALLY great time. The books I read were... *insert a million hearts* I fell in love big time. With old characters, with new ones - with books and authors. With worlds and with words. Yeah, sure, ACOMAF was my favourite bet you didn't see that one coming but I read The Raven King and it was BRILLIANT as well. It was such a worthy conclusion of a series I adore. I will miss my Raven boys. Ronan most of all, but Gansey, Adam and Noah (& Blue of course) almost just as much. I'm so sad it is over and relieved at the same time because now at least I know how everything worked out.  Mixed feelings, anyone? (My review will come! someday) But ACOMAF - GODDDDDD, ACOMAF.  Speechless, that's what I am. RHYSSSS Another favourite this month was definitely Wait For You by Jennifer L. Armentrout (J. Lynn). I had never read a book by her before and now I can't wait to read another one. It was great! The characters she drew touched me to the core and hell, who am I kidding - I fell in love with Cam Hamilton and there was nothing I could do about it. The Forbidden Wish was better than expected and I also read Kindled Spirits by Rainbow Rowell. That last one is a short story she wrote and it was Rainbow at her best. <3 The Crown on the other hand was a HUGE disappointment so I'm not going to dwell on that too long. You can read my review if you want to know why I hated it.

May wrap up book haul
My haul was pretty exciting (if I can say so myself). I can't stop looking at my copy of Summer Days & Summer Nights (edited by Stephanie Perkins) DID YOU KNOW THE PAGES ARE YELLOW?? :O and I finally treated myself with The Wrath And The Dawn and The Rose And The Dagger. I've started the first one and it is honestly as amazing as everyone told me it would be. Can't wait to finish! Of course I also bought ACOMAF. I feel like i am repeating myself over and over but i just can't stop when it comes to this book. I bought it twice because my puppy dog decided to rip my first one to shreds. It doesn't really show in the picture, but trust me, it's not pretty. :(

What did you read in May? Which ones were your favorites?

But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone. Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.


Upcoming Releases: June 2016

Upcoming Releases June 2016
June already. The months are flying by. Can you believe it has been nine months since the release of books like Queen Of Shadows and Six Of Crows? I basically could have gotten a baby in that time. There are no 'greatly' anticipated books this month. Not for me at least. There is The King Slayer but I still need to read the first book. But some of these seem a lot of fun and my ever-growing TBR has once again gotten a little longer. Which books are you excited about?
