Soooo I may have bought a few books in January. My book buying ban from December ended and I splurged a little. Might have to consider a book buying ban for February, hahah. Keep reading if you want to find out what I bought.
Synopsis: A vandal who leaves a red feather at the scene of his crimes has been striking at Camp Nightwing, and when a counselor is found dead, junior counselor Holly Flynn is determined to solve the mystery.
I bought this to complete my Modern Mrs. Darcy Challenge for this month. It made me very nostalgic. Check out my review and learn more about the challenge here.
Synopsis: In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.
Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.
Now, a sixteen year old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic — the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with the Church’s halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the only thing she desires.
This was an impulse buy. Brittany the Bibliophile talks about it all the time on her YouTube channel. I just had to have it.
Synopsis: Katherine Arden’s enchanting first novel introduced readers to an irresistible heroine. Vasilisa has grown up at the edge of a Russian wilderness, where snowdrifts reach the eaves of her family’s wooden house and there is truth in the fairy tales told around the fire. Vasilisa’s gift for seeing what others do not won her the attention of Morozko—Frost, the winter demon from the stories—and together they saved her people from destruction. But Frost’s aid comes at a cost, and her people have condemned her as a witch.
Now Vasilisa faces an impossible choice. Driven from her home by frightened villagers, the only options left for her are marriage or the convent. She cannot bring herself to accept either fate and instead chooses adventure, dressing herself as a boy and setting off astride her magnificent stallion Solovey.
But after Vasilisa prevails in a skirmish with bandits, everything changes. The Grand Prince of Moscow anoints her a hero for her exploits, and she is reunited with her beloved sister and brother, who are now part of the Grand Prince’s inner circle. She dares not reveal to the court that she is a girl, for if her deception were discovered it would have terrible consequences for herself and her family. Before she can untangle herself from Moscow’s intrigues—and as Frost provides counsel that may or may not be trustworthy—she will also confront an even graver threat lying in wait for all of Moscow itself.
This is the sequel to The Bear and the Nightingale. I am reading it right now and I love it.
Synopsis: Vasilisa Petrovna is an unforgettable heroine determined to forge her own path. Her gifts and her courage have drawn the attention of Morozko, the winter-king, but it is too soon to know if this connection will prove a blessing or a curse.
Now Moscow has been struck by disaster. Its people are searching for answers—and for someone to blame. Vasya finds herself alone, beset on all sides. The Grand Prince is in a rage, choosing allies that will lead him on a path to war and ruin. A wicked demon returns, determined to spread chaos. Caught at the center of the conflict is Vasya, who finds the fate of two worlds resting on her shoulders. Her destiny uncertain, Vasya will uncover surprising truths about herself as she desperately tries to save Russia, Morozko, and the magical world she treasures. But she may not be able to save them all.
To be honest I have not read this synopsis. I don’t want to be spoiled. This is the final book in The Winternight Trilogy.
All the books after this one are from my Chattanooga book haul. I won’t bore you with the synopsis again. If you haven’t seen the post and want to know more about the books check it out here.
This is the sequel to Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I’m sad because I realized it doesn’t match my copy of Shadow and Bone. Anyway it was a good deal so I’m still excited.
Let me publicly admit that this series intimidates me. I don’t know why. I plan to jump into it soon. Wish me luck.
I’m so excited for this. It is the next novel in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series. I hope I love it as much as I love the other ones.
Potatoes. They really didn’t even have to put anything else in the title to convince me to buy it.
I have started this graphic novel. I am trying to get into it. The art is really nice.
I look forward to starting this one. I kind of want to keep it for Halloween but lets be honest I’ll probably read it for Valentine’s Day, lol.
So that was all the books I bought in January. Thanks for reading.
