Vote for July Buddy Read!!

I finally made the poll for the buddy read I have been wanting to do! I got a few suggestions, so I picked books that were fairly different. There are four books to choose from and they have varying genres, and are pretty popular in the YA book community. This survey will close on either the 14th or 15th (I forgot what I set XD) so make sure you get your votes in. This poll was made to see how many people were interested and what book they would want to read. If there is any blogger that would like to particpate and make some sort of discussion post, let me know! For now, there is a link down below that should let you vote!

2015 Most Anticipated Books (Jan-June) PART 1

I finally made up my list of the most anticipated books of 2015. Of course there are many great books that people are looking forward to that are coming out in 2015, so I narrowed it down to the 1st half of the year (January-June). However I found 16 total books, and I am breaking it into 4 posts. I am doing this so

JANUARY

Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall  (Jan 13)

This story takes place in a future dystopia, where there is a very powerful secret society called the Circle. This society believes that Avery is the key to an old prophecy and that she can fix everything. Avery must unravel the mystery by traveling all over with two boys in the Circle by finding clues. However after time, it is evident that these clues could possibly start World War 3. Not only that, but the boys hold some secrets of their own as well. Avery has a huge decision; chose the boy that will help her save the world, or choose the boy she is falling in love with?

Fairest by Marissa Meyer  (Jan 27)

This is a bridge story between Cress and Winter by Marissa Meyer. So far, all we know about Queen Levana is how she uses her ‘glamour’ to gain power over people. That is, until now. Meyer has finally written the story of Queen Levana and it is definitely a must-read for fans of the series. Not only that, but there is a 3 chapter Winter excerpt in the back, so that makes it even better.

I Was Here by Gayle Forman   (Jan 27)

Cody thought she knew everything about her best friend Meg. However, after Meg commits suicide in a hotel room, Cody is left to find the answers. Everything she thought she knew about her is gone and she discovers many things her ‘best friend’ never told her about. Like her room mates, Ben McAllister, and the secret computer file. This is a great book for fans of other Gayle Forman books.

Then there are the red-blooded, which is the majority, who spend their life serving the Silvers.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

By now, you have probably seen this cover at least once…

Everywhere I have looked lately, Red Queen has popped up somehow. This is a new book from the debut author Victoria Aveyard, and it is on everyone’s TBR list. If you don’t know much about Red Queen, here is all the infromation I have gathered about the story.

– It is set in a place where there are two kinds of people; people with red blood and people with silver blood.

– The silver blooded people rule the kingdom. Since they have silver blood, they have these really cool and unique powers, and get to live a nice lifestyle.

– The red blood people essentially live to serve the silver blood people.

– The main character Mare has a really special power, but she is not a silver blood.

– The king obviously doesn’t want anyone to know about Mare, since she has the power to take down all the silver blooded people.

I am really excited to read this book, because I am very interested to see how the story pans out. This is the first book of the Red Queen Trilogy, and it will come out on February 10…..

 

However, if you really don’t want to wait, you could check out the first 7 chapters! EpicReads has posted the chapters and I know I definitely will be reading them soon. But beware, because you might not want to stop after the end of the 7th chapter and will have to wait another two weeks!
