JULY BOOKHAUL

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas | Red Rising by Pierce Brown | Made You Up by Frncesca Zappia

Hello,

I've become very  busy once again. I hate it when this happens. Not only can I not blog regularly but I also can't read so much. School works get piled up easily and I get tired so quickly. It's either I sleep so early because of fatigue or not sleep at all because of too much things to do. But yeah, I'm still here and hoping that the next month will be better for me.

I didn't bought so much books this month. So proud of myself! :D I bought Made You Up and A Court of Thorns and Roses at the end of June but wasn't able to share it on my June Book Haul. So I decided to add them here. I also bought an extra copy of Red Rising...

Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Expected Publication: December 29, 2015
Purchase: Amazon | B&N | Powells


Welcome to Torte-a small-town family bakeshop where the treats are killer good.

It's the dead of winter in the sleepy town of Ashland, which means no tourists-and fewer customers-for Jules Capshaw and her bakery. But when she's asked to cater an off-season retreat for the directors of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, business starts heating up...until Jules finds a dead body in the freezer.

"An intriguing new series."-Reader to Reader

Someone at the retreat has apparently iced the bartender, a well-known flirt with a legendary temper-that is, before a killer beat him to the punch. Then, from out of nowhere, Jules's own ex-husband shows up at the shop-and soon becomes a suspect. With accusations piling up higher than the snow-and thicker than a chocolate mousse cake-Jules has to think outside the (recipe) box to find the real culprit...and make sure he gets his just desserts.

"A delectable tale of murder and intrigue."-Portland Book Review on Meet Your Baker

[REVIEW] Descendants of the Rose

Series: Selby Jensen Paranormal Mystery #1
Author:
Juliette Harper
Genre:
 mystery, paranormal
Published: May 6, 2015
Publisher: Skye House Publishing

Purchase: Amazon

Selby Jensen’s business card reads “Private Investigator,” but to say the least, that downplays her real occupation. Let’s hear it in her own words:  
“You want to know what I do for a living? I rip souls out. Cut heads off. Put silver bullets where silver bullets need putting. You think there aren't any monsters? . . . I have some disturbing news for you. You might want to sit down. Monsters walk among us. I'm looking for one in particular. In the meantime? I'm keeping the rest of them from eating people like you.”  
In this debut novel of her new paranormal mystery series, Juliette Harper, author of The Lockwood Legacy books and The Study Club Mysteries creates a cast of characters, most of whom have one thing in common; they don’t have a pulse. The dead are doing just fine by Selby, who is determined never to lose someone she loves again, but then a force of love more powerful than her grief changes that plan.  
Join Selby Jensen as she and her team track down a shadowy figure tied to a murder at a girls’ school. What none of them realize, however, is that in solving this case, they will enter a longer battle against a larger evil.

Can you imagine a future where everyone has given up sleeping? 
From the creator of the television series Red Band Society and author of the international bestseller The Yellow World comes this uniquely special novel.
What if I could reveal your secrets with just a glance? And what if I could feel with your heart just by looking at you? And what if --in a single moment-- I could know that we were made for each other? Marcos has just lost his mother, a famous dancer who taught him everything, and he decides that his world can never be the same without her. Just as he is about to make a radical change, a phone call turns his world upside down.

Albert Espinosa has a peculiar talent for generating immediate congeniality around him, for shifting people's moods toward the positive and for reconciling them with themselves and the world, when needed.

[TOP TEN TUESDAY] Last Books That Came Into My Possession

This Week's Topic: Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession

I have been avoiding buying books. I have been avoiding downloading review copies. Yup, somehow, I'm doing well. This past month, June, I only bought four books (only two of those were included in my recent book haul because I bought the first two I mentioned on the last day of June).

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. Review Here. This made me want to read more books by Agatha Christie!!
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. The many reviews I've read lately convinced me that I should totally place this above my reading list.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. Fantasy = not my usual read but everyone's been raving about this so I thought that I should try it.
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia. I've read great things about this. SO excited to get around to reading this!
