Danger: TBR Pile.

Another week, another gazillion books I've added to my list. I hit and ordered some awesome books over the weekend. I think it's time for another bookcase ;) 

Wither by Lauren DeStefano

From Goodreads:

What if you knew exactly when you would die? Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out. When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home. But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.

The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan

From Goodreads:

There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face before Annah left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the Horde as they swarmed the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters. Annah's world stopped that day, and she's been waiting for Elias to come home ever since. Somehow, without him, her life doesn't feel much different than the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Until she meets Catcher, and everything feels alive again. But Catcher has his own secrets. Dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah has longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it's up to Annah: can she continue to live in a world covered in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction?

Entwined by Heather Dixon


From Goodreads:

Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it. The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation. Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest. But there is a cost. The Keeper likes to keep things. Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.

What about you? Any new books on your radar this week?

Lovely choices! I'm reading Fated by SG Browne. Hubs gave it to me for Christmas and it actually counts as research since it's a similar genre to my WIP. Win-win!

My copy of The Dark and Hollow Places is in the mail! I can't wait!

I'm going to have to check out the other two books - I haven't read much about them, but they sound great!

I've just started reading Warped by Maurissa Guibord. It's fantastic so far!

Wither is definitely going to be picked up this wee and stuck on the stack! I still need to read The Dead Tossed Waves, though, before I get the 3rd.

Talli Roland said...

I've a pile of books I need to catch up on! Really want to read 'Getting Away with It' by Julie Cohen.

Amparo Ortiz said...

I WANT ALL OF THEM. Haven't read The Dead Tossed Waves yet, so I steered clear of reading the summary for Dark and Hollow Places :) But yeah, these are soon to be mine, too!

My TBR is OUT OF CONTROL I've got 60+ books to read. But school is getting in the way!!

Jessica Hill said...

I'm looking forward to Wither, too! It sounds amazing. My TBR is (and always will be) waaay too out of control. I buy books way faster than I can read them.

My TBR pile makes me feel guilty, so I try not to look at them for too long.

I've been wanting to read ENTWINED -- it sounds really good.
