Hello, lovelies! It's the last day of May, and I thought I'd share with you the new books I collected this month, as well as a quick wrap-up of how my reading went. I'll add links to reviews wherever applicable. Let's jump right in!
This week's Top 5 Wednesday challenge is to list 5 fandoms that you used to be in, but aren't anymore - whether that's due to outgrowing it, the fandom fizzling out, or a dramatic turn of events that made you run away, screaming. (Okay, hopefully that last one hasn't happened to too many of you, but I'm guilty.)
It's hard enough on the agents when the butterflies start falling apart, but suicides of girls who can't seem to fit back in outside of the Garden are only half of the heartache that Eddison has to face down now. While the girls await their day in court with the Gardener, another killer is at large: the Spring Killer, who kills one teen every spring, and has done so for 17 years without exposing himself. His only marker is the flowers that he leaves around each girl's lifeless body.
I'm always looking for a fun new tag to participate in, so when my friend Melanie over at Novel Descent referred me to Top Ten Tuesdays, I had to join in! This is a weekly tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week's challenge is Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For The Second Half of 2017. I'll list the titles I'm excited for, as well as their covers, release dates, and Goodreads synopsis.
Hey, guys! I just wanted to let you all know that I'm officially on Bloglovin', so you can follow me there, too. I'm honestly pretty new to the whole blog-o-sphere, so I'll have to do some exploring, but if you guys want to drop your Bloglovin' buttons in the comments, I'll follow all the bookish accounts back! ❤
This week's Top 5 Wednesday challenge is to choose your top 5 favorite minor characters! I feel like it's important to note here that I consider there to be a tremendous difference between a "side" character and a "minor" character; a side character is not the MC but does have a notable amount of screen time, generally (think: Neville Longbottom), whereas a minor character is usually not shown very often or given much back story (think: Professor Trelawney).
Ersel's tribe of merpeople has been exiled to the coldest habitable water remaining, far north, and every year, their population dwindles as mermaids' eggs are frozen in their wombs, doomed to infertility. In an act of desperation, the king has enforced a law that, in their nineteenth year, each mermaid must undergo a test of fertility - and the female with the highest likelihood of successful brooding becomes a prized possession, coveted by all of the mermen. To be fertile, and wanted, is the greatest pride any mermaid in their tribe can hold.
