5 Books I Want to Buy Before the End of the Year

5 Books I Want to Buy (before the end of the year)

In case you haven’t figured it out by all the reviews I post on this blog: I love reading.

Shocker, I know.

If I were to let myself go and buy every book I wanted, I’d be broke in a week, probably even sooner. However, there are some books I desire more than others and since I think they’d be amazing reads, I decided to share them with you. This list is in no particular order and I tried to go for a bit of diversity so you’ll see three Fiction novels, a manga and a writing guide here, all of them by different authors.

Let’s start with the Fiction novels Continue reading

What Boys Are Made Of Book I of the Saint Flaherty series

Genres: LGBT, Action, Dystopian

WARNING: Mature Content

Blurb:

Nobody wants to be a murderer, but some don’t get the choice.

A second civil war has torn America apart, leaving Appalachia an isolated minefield ruled by cartels. In the town of Buchell, Simon “Saint” Flaherty cage fights for money—until the day a fight gone wrong leaves him a murderer.

His coach uses the publicity to set Simon up in the fight of his life in scarcely a month’s time, but physically ready doesn’t mean mentally ready. Still reeling from what he’s done, Simon will do anything not to kill again.

But Simon’s coach isn’t the only man in Buchell with an eye for talent. The cartels that keep a stranglehold over the mountains are scouting for new recruits, and the local kingpin has his eye on the teenager with the one-punch knockout.

With big money on the line and no way to escape, it’s time for Simon to learn to live with blood on his hands–before he ends up dead too.

What I think of the book: Continue reading

Since it’s October, you are probably expecting some spooky books on my To Be Read list. Well… Not only. There’s a book that kind of ties to Halloween, what with the main character being dead and all, but I have several ARCs to review this month and reading those will take some time.

Yep. You get not one, but Continue reading
