The Black Irix Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least make it out of her neighborhood one day. With bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it—she has to make it. Why the Fence? I read THUG in after being on the fence for ages. Not only to the maji but nobles with magic ancestry, too.
In the end, I gave the book a 3. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead, she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic. That is, until the day she becomes the newest Chosen One. However, when bodies start turning up, Nina will have to use her new powers to put a stop to it or potentially risk losing someone she loves.
I am a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan. So the idea that someone decided to write a YA book set in the Buffy-verse makes my nerdy heart go wild. But the leader of the Bolshevik army is after them. She likes him. She thinks he might even like her. I love Anastasia — both the animated movie and the fascinating history surrounding the Russian Revolution so this caught my interest easily.
Do I risk it and perhaps end up finding something really good or skip it? Even worse, his parents are annoyingly, smugly confident they could find him a better match.
Smethport Area Jr.-Sr. High School Library
So, in a moment of weakness, Ash challenges them to set him up. Sweetie Nair is many things: a formidable track athlete who can outrun most people in California, a loyal friend, a shower-singing champion. Ashish and Sweetie both have something to prove. Can they find their true selves without losing each other.
This book sounds super cute and I love the fact that it features a female lead with a bigger body type wanting to enjoy being her best self. Left with no one to turn to, she finds an unexpected ally in the mysterious sorcerer, Nathaniel Thorn.

The blurb for this book sounds awesome — magic, powerful books and libraries, conspiracies. This could be right up my alley. Plus the cover looks so good! I wonder if Sorcery of Thorns will be different? A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.
A prince in danger must decide who to trust. A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings.
Black Raven Publishing EBOOK The Darkling War
Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war. In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. I am so torn on this one. Worse, this romantic storyline renders the female lead a bit stupid and naive. Ugh, I can already feel the frustration brewing.
Rielle Dardenne has been anointed Sun Queen, but her trials are far from over. The Gate keeping the angels at bay is falling. To repair it, Rielle must collect the seven hidden castings of the saints. Meanwhile, to help her prince and love Audric protect Celdaria, Rielle must spy on the angel Corien — but his promises of freedom and power may prove too tempting to resist.
In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything. That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them.
So, this is like Eragon but with crows. Part of me is like YES and the other is like, magical crows? The world building has been said to be a little iffy. Could go either way for me, really. Lemon Fresh has seen better days. After the climactic battle in Babel, she finds herself separated from Ezekiel and Cricket in the wastelands. Meanwhile, Cricket finds himself in possession of the puritanical Brotherhood, a religious cult set for a head-on collision with the Major and his band. Searching for Lemon, Ezekiel finds a strange ally in an old enemy, and uncovers a plot that may see him reunited with his beloved Ana.
I love Jay Kristoff. Yet, after where book one finished, part of me is still keen to see where it leads. As you may or may not have been aware of from either Goodreads or a sneaky glance at my blog home page, I recently finally got my butt into gear and read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. She has thousands of readers and has even won awards for her stories. Basically, Cath lives and breathes fanfic.
Her fandom of choice is a Rowell created series about a teen named Simon Snow which has some big similarities to something that rhymes with Gary Trotter. These days I feel like fanfiction gets a bit of a bad rap from the reading and broader community. Pick any book, television show or movie in the world and I guarantee you that somewhere out there is a devoted group of fans who absolutely worship it beyond imagination. Fanfiction is a fantastic way for people to not only constructively express their love of a particular fandom okay, sometimes constructively , but also help them to connect with like-minded people.
For the commonly found introvert much like Cath in Fangirl , this is a good opportunity for socialisation and the ability to bond over a common interest. Writing is hard. Like, seriously hard. I panic, okay! Fanfiction can be a great way for newbie writers to develop their skills. By already having a deep understanding of the characters, setting and rules, fanfic writers are able to focus on plot and the actual writing itself.

If you want to play on the wrong side of the law, you can participate in a variety of heists.
You can rob banks, jewelry stores, armored cash vehicles, etc. If you prefer to play as a cop, however, your task is to stop robbers. Striker plays as a heister. When he and his teammates have been returning from a successful robbery, another team of heisters has attacked them and taken their money away. Some of the victims want to get even with them. Still, nobody has achieved any success in tracking them down yet.
No one knows who they are, why they rob other heisters, or where to find them. A few days later, when Striker escapes with stolen money after another successful robbery, he happens to run into the mysterious gang again. They try to rob him, but he manages to repel the attack and ward the players off. Later on, Striker finds out that the members of the mysterious gang have trashed his home out of revenge.
After that, he gets determined to hunt them down. He has a score to settle. I had been waiting for this virtual reality video game to be released for six years. So it was no wonder I bought the game the moment it became available for purchase. While the game was downloading, I prepared my gaming pod for use. I had watched all the gameplay videos and trailers for Heist Online, so I knew what the game was about. It was set in a fictional American state called Ahyoka.
Also, the game took place in a historical setting, namely in There had not even been virtual reality video games yet. Well, there had already been some VR games, but they had been way less sophisticated than the contemporary ones. Heist Online was about heisters and cops, hence the name of the game. I was very fond of the setting and the main concept of the game, so I was very excited for this game.
Finally, the game finished downloading and installing. I wasted no time getting into my gaming pod and immersing myself in virtual reality. As my physical body went to sleep, my consciousness entered the game.
