The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #1) - Erika Johansen

I won this book in a competition. It is so pretty - hardcover with red-edged pages. I can’t wait to read it!

Kelsea Glynn is the sole heir to the throne of Tearling but has been raised in secret by foster parents after her mother - Queen Elyssa, as vain as she was stupid - was murdered for ruining her kingdom. For 18 years, the Tearling has been ruled by Kelsea’s uncle in the role of Regent however he is but the debauched puppet of the Red Queen, the sorceress-tyrant of neighbouring realm of Mortmesme. On Kelsea’s 19th birthday, the tattered remnants of her mother’s guard - each pledged to defend the queen to the death - arrive to bring this most un-regal young woman out of hiding…

And so begins her journey back to her kingdom’s heart, to claim the throne, earn the loyalty of her people, overturn her mother’s legacy and redeem the Tearling from the forces of corruption and dark magic that are threatening to destroy it. But Kelsea’s story is not just about her learning the true nature of her inheritance - it’s about a heroine who must learn to acknowledge and live with the realities of coming of age in all its insecurities and attractions, alongside the ethical dilemmas of ruling justly and fairly while simply trying to stay alive.


Trial by Fire (The Worldwalker Trilogy #1) - Josephine Angelini

Thank you to Pan Macmillan for sending me a copy of this book!

The exhilaratingly seductive new series from the author of the bestselling Starcrossed series

Love burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns.

This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted…which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily’s life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear.

Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily’s identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences.

Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn’t understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can’t hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected.

But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?


Dangerous Girls - Abigail Haas

I got this book as a free copy from iTunes (quick, it may still be available). I have heard so much about it recently, I couldn’t let it slip away :)

Elise is dead.
And someone must pay.

Anna, her boyfriend Tate, best friend Elise and a group of close friends set off on a debaucherous Spring Break trip to Aruba. But paradise soon turns into a living nightmare when Elise is brutally murdered.

Soon Anna finds herself trapped in a foreign country and fighting for her freedom. As she awaits the judge’s decree, it becomes clear that everyone is questioning her innocence. To the rest of the world, Anna isn’t just guilty, but dangerous. As the court case unfolds the truth is about to come out, and it’s more shocking than you could ever imagine.

      I grabbed Dangerous Girls because of you Cait! But it is an ebook, and sometimes they get pushed aside, as I prefer to read physical books - but I hope to get to it soon.
      I have heard good things about Trial by Fire.. I hope you enjoy it!
      Thanks for linking to your STS. Happy reading (no comment re DOSAB)

  • Ohh, I’ve got Dangerous Girls, but I haven’t read it yet, need to very soon though especially after all the hype. I hope Trial By Fire is good! Haven’t read any of her books before, but I look forward to what you think. Happy Reading!

      I have high hopes for both of these after everything I have heard about them - and I haven’t read either of these authors before either. I hope you enjoy them when you read them too!
