1.Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5) by Richelle Mead.
We (Ferdy, Naomi and myself) are HUGE Bloodlines fans. Sure, we argue with Ferdy about Sydrian and yes Naomi still hasn’t picked up “The Fiery Heart” for some God awful reason, but we love it. It’s why we have the Bloodlines book club and why Naomi’s review of “The Indigo Spell” is the top rated helpful review on amazon. We love it and my God, who the hell doesn’t want to know what’s going to happen next?! I do. I can’t wait. Like, honestly can’t wait for this book as I can’t wait for all of Richelle Mead’s books.
2. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
I love Anna and I loved Lola and I cannot wait for Isla. Especially, because her love interest is Josh. Who was the younger boyfriend character of one of Anna’s friends. This is the story of a young man’s second love, which will be really interesting to read. It’s usually first and only love in YA and it will be interesting to see Josh fall in love again. Also, I love Stephanie Perkins heaps and I am excited that instead of rushing the book like so many authors are prone to doing these days, she has taken longer to make sure it’s just right. EXCITED!
3.Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) Marissa Meyer
Cress! Cress! Cress! This series mixes fairy tale with sci-fi and I love it. I can’t wait to get my hands on this book to see how the story unfolds and how Ms. Meyer links yet another classic story in the world of Lunar. :-)
4. Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong
I literally have no idea what this book is about, but in Kelley Armstrong I trust, so I will be picking it up!
5. After the End by Amy Plum
Besides the gorgeous cover…no honestly, look at the cover again. Click it and see it at full size. Listen, it’s probably a mistake, because I have had my heart broken by dystopia before, but the premise of After the End is just too good to pass up!
6. Killer Frost (Mythos Academy) by Jennifer Estep.
Ok, the last Mythos Academy book wasn’t that great. I admit it! It was filler, but I have hopes that Ms. Estep will get us back to fighting form and we’ll finally get some Chamption on Loki action…wait, that’s right this Loki is not played by Tom Hiddleston. Ok, I just really hope to see the story progress in this installment. I hope to be reaching a satisfying conclusion, very soon.
Some books I want even though I know very little:
Untitled, no synopsis, no cover art, John Green book. :-)
Mortal Heart by R.L. LaFevers The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa (Blood of Eden 3!!!) New cassandra clare series that I have been told about, but know nothing! :-)
Do you have any suggestions for books featuring a female assassin? The Throne of Glass series became a little dissapointing when she basically stopped operating as an assassin after the prequel and gave me a desperate need.
I LOVE LADY ASSASSINS. And even if Celaena isn’t an assassin in the books after Crown of Midnight, she’s still bad ass, so I love it xD
Graceling by Kristin Cashore (Katsa is an assassin, but I don’t think she actually does much assassinating in the book? She’s still a world class bad ass though, and the sequels are just a filled with amazing women!)
His Fair Assassin by Robin LaFevers (A trilogy about three different girl assassins raised in a convent to be assassins! NUN ASSASSINS. Okay, not really /nuns/, but they’re raised to be assassins and it’s AWESOME. Also, lots of romance but it’s still bad ass ladies, so still acceptable??)
When I first saw your request I was really excited, but I’m realizing that even the lady assassins in books I can list, the women often don’t do any killing/assassinating in the book… Weird. I’m sorry I couldn’t conjure up more, but a lot of what I found was male assassins :P Maybe there are gems in these lists that I missed?
