November Book Haul

I went to the bookstore yesterday (first time since I finished Allegiant) and bought three books that I'm really looking forward to reading. It seems like I haven't been able to get into a book after allegiant so hopefully these books will cure me of my book hangover.

1.) Teardrop by Lauren Kate

Never, ever cry...

Seventeen-year-old Eureka won't let anyone close enough to feel her pain. After her mother was killed in a freak accident, the things she used to love hold no meaning. She wants to escape, but one thing holds her back: Ander, the boy who is everywhere she goes, whose turquoise eyes are like the ocean.
And then Eureka uncovers an ancient tale of romance and heartbreak, about a girl who cried an entire continent into the sea. Suddenly her mother's death and Ander's appearance seem connected, and her life takes on dark undercurrents that don't make sense.
Can everything you love be washed away?

I've read Lauren Kate's other series, Fallen and I liked the series. Not one of my favorites, but still pretty good. The cover immediately drew me in and then when I read the summary I was sold. This book looks amazing  and I'm really looking forward to starting it.



2.) Champion by Marie Lu (Legend #3)



The explosive finale to Marie Lu’s New York Times bestselling LEGEND trilogy—perfect for fans of THE HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT!
He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion? 
June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.

The Legend series has been one of my favorites for a long time. I love the characters, the dual point of view, and the non-stop action plot. Im really excited to start reading this but it will definitely be sad   to see the series come to a close.

3.) All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
"You have to kill him." Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.
Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside. 
Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was. 
All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.

This book looks AMAZING! The plot is so unique and interesting! I've read many books in my time and I haven't quite read something with the premise All Our Yesterdays has so I'm really looking forward to this one.

  1. I got Champion 2 days ago and IT IS SO INTENSE and oh my gosh, I hope it doesn't murder my soul like Allegiant did, but who am I kidding? It's the last book in a trilogy and those always end in pain
