Guess what, guys? *Drum roll*IT IS ALMOST THE END OF THE YEAR!!!
So I will be sharing my most anticipated books that will most likely be released by the end of 2018. Obviously since the books are not out yet, I am getting the summary from Goodreads.
1. The Burning Maze (The Trials of Apollo, #3) by Rick Riordan
“The formerly glorious god Apollo, cast down to earth in punishment by Zeus, is now an awkward mortal teenager named Lester Papadopoulos. In order to regain his place on Mount Olympus, Lester must restore five Oracles that have gone dark. But he has to achieve this impossible task without having any godly powers and while being duty-bound to a confounding young daughter of Demeter named Meg. Thanks a lot, Dad.
With the help of some demigod friends, Lester managed to survive his first two trials, one at Camp Half-Blood, and one in Indianapolis, where Meg received the Dark Prophecy. The words she uttered while seated on the Throne of Memory revealed that an evil triumvirate of Roman emperors plans to attack Camp Jupiter. While Leo flies ahead on Festus to warn the Roman camp, Lester and Meg must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor—and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles—somewhere in the American Southwest. There is one glimmer of hope in the gloom-filled prophecy: The cloven guide alone the way does know. They will have a satyr companion, and Meg knows just who to call upon. . . .”–Goodreads
The reason why I want to read this book is that it is by Rick Riordan and also because I have already read the first two books and I love it. The whole universe that the author has created is just so appealing to read, it is so easy to get addicted to the books so for those who like Percy Jackson, you have to read this book.
<2. Obsidio (The Illuminae Files, #3) by Amie Kaufman
“Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion?
Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha’s past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.
With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.”–Goodreads
Like the previous book, The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan, I have read the first book and currently reading the second book so I would like to continue the series. Although after reading the second book, my desire to continue the series would diminish because I am not a fan of books that do not continue from where it left off. I do not mind books that continue after a few days, weeks, or months, but if it starts off somewhere else I do not like it as much. Though I still would like to continue because of how unique the book is.
3. Pretty Dead Girls by Monica Murphy
“Beautiful. Perfect. Dead.
In the peaceful seaside town of Cape Bonita, wicked secrets and lies are hidden just beneath the surface. But all it takes is one tragedy for them to be exposed.
The most popular girls in school are turning up dead, and Penelope Malone is terrified she’s next. All the victims so far have been linked to Penelope—and to a boy from her physics class. The one she’s never really noticed before, with the rumoured dark past and a brooding stare that cuts right through her.
There’s something he isn’t telling her. But there’s something she’s not telling him, either. Everyone has secrets, and theirs might get them killed.”–Goodreads
Currently, I am into mysteries with a killer so when I saw the summary it made me want to read it. The summary mentioned people turning up dead and the possibility of someone important dying too.
4. Together at Midnight by Jennifer Castle
“What does it really mean to be kind . . . and why does it sometimes feel like the hardest thing in the world to do? High school senior Kendall, who just returned from a life-changing semester in Europe, and Max, who is drifting his way through a gap year before college, struggle with these questions when they witness a tragic accident in New York City during the holiday season. Racked with guilt, the two accept a dare to perform random acts of kindness to strangers. The challenge pulls these two teens, who have a history together from back home, closer and closer as they explore a vibrant city filled with other people’s stories and secrets.
Kendall and Max can’t deny their growing bond, even though they both have other romantic entanglements and uncertain futures. As the clock counts down on New Year’s Eve, will they find themselves together at midnight?”–Goodreads
I feel like this would be a great winter read because when I read the summary I feel like this book would leave me with a bitter, sweet feeling after finishing it.
5. The Sacrifice Box by Martin Stewart
“Sep, Arkle, Mack, Lamb and Hadley: five friends thrown together one hot, sultry summer. When they discover an ancient stone box hidden in the forest, they decide to each make a sacrifice: something special to them, committed to the box forever. And they make a pact: they will never return to the box at night; they’ll never visit it alone; and they’ll never take back their offerings.
Four years later, the gang have drifted apart. Then a series of strange and terrifying events take place, and Sep and his friends understand that one of them has broken the pact.
As their sacrifices haunt them with increased violence and hunger, they realise that they are not the first children to have found the box in their town’s history. And ultimately, the box may want the greatest sacrifice of all: one of them.”–Goodreads
This book is about them trying to survive a certain danger which just drew me in because there is this death threat that is always dangling over the heads of the people in the gang. I love books that always have this possibility of having one of the important character dying because when I read I like to feel emotions and the ones that I like the most is sadness, happiness and fear. With happiness, I do not like ones that associate with romance but with friendships and families, I love them.
I cannot wait to read all of these books (even though I have plenty on my to-read list on Goodreads).
But a girl can wish, right?
Lol, okay, bye guys and have a wonderful day wherever you are. *wink wink* go add me on Goodreads (totally not self-promoting right now).
