The Perfect Assassin by K.A. Doore

The Perfect Assassin by K.A. Doore

In the beginning, Amastan is learning to be an assassin only to find the leaders have outlawed assassinations. He is somewhat relieved at this as he didn’t know if he would be able to take a life if it actually came down to it. But then he finds a body, which turns out to be one of the family.

The Reach Between Worlds by Cameron M. Hayden

The Reach Between Worlds by Cameron M. Hayden

The story was somewhat interesting. There are a few times Taro almost gets caught, and he gets lucky just squeaking by. There is also a test the students must pass. This test could mean their lives though. They all must work as a team, or they all fail. On this test, things get dicey, as they fight for their lives with something making them go mad.

A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

fter finishing A Gathering of Shadows, book 2 of the Shades of Magic series, I couldn’t wait to start A Conjuring of Light. The cliffhanger the book ends on is one leaving you going “nooo!” I was very happy I was able to work this into my Book Junkie Trials TBR.

Kin of Kings by B.T. Narro

Kin of Kings by B.T. Narro

Things in the book seem to work out, and things just really start going right for Basem and his father. They make a key friend with one of the people who was watching the trials, and turns out to be a key person and family relation to the king. If you can manage to get past these miraculous strokes of good luck in the beginning, the book gets much better.

Air Awakens by Elise Kova

Air Awakens by Elise Kova

I will admit I was a bit worried when I chose this book for my Book Junkie Trials TBR, but this book too that uncertainty and crushed it. It was a great first book for a month long readathon.

My Life Among the Underdogs by Tia Torres

My Life Among the Underdogs by Tia Torres

In one particular chapter she talks of a hurricane Katrina dog who makes an impression on one of her friends who has gone to help care for the displaced dogs and reunite them with their families. In this chapter she also talks of how cruel people can be in using the dogs to make a quick buck with no concern for the dogs what so ever. This chapter in particular really got to me and I had to put this book down and go to a different book to unwind my mingled feelings.

Sabriel by Garth Nix

Sabriel by Garth Nix

The story is sad in a way. Because of the goings on and what has happened in the past, Sabriel doesn’t get to see much of her father. And then he is killed before he can teach her more of what she is, and what she can do. Sabriel then must become the Abhorsen, a person who helps spirits to the other side.

Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Hunted by Meagan Spooner

This is a fantastic retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I picked this up remembering seeing it somewhere and hearing good things, but didn’t remember anything that was said about it. It wasn’t until I was probably half-way in, I remembered it was a Beauty and the Beast retelling.
