I am just starting Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth – This is an ARC book I received from work (Books A Million) given by Katherine Tegen Books.
Fans of Star Wars and Divergent will revel in internationally bestselling author Veronica Roth’s stunning new science-fiction fantasy series.
On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not—their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?
Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power—something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.
Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuvhe, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive—no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive—or to destroy one another.

About 2 days ago I finished Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Loved, loved, LOVED it! The Goodreads synopsis link here – readers giving it a 4.1
I am giving it a 5 out of 5! My review is underway but wrote this:
“Well done Marissa Meyer! How you can make a ‘villain’ into a cherished character – I am in so much awe with this book, I cannot complete full sentences!”
What do you think you’ll read next?
I have 2 choices for this and it all depends on which I receive first!
First choice is Midnight Hour
(Shadow Falls: After Dark #4) by C.C. Hunter.
Gretchen gives it a great review here that has me excited to read it and compare notes! If you are not following chicnerdreads – start! 🙂
As she said in her WWW Wednesday ” I would definitely suggest checking out the book that started it all, Born At Midnight (Shadow Falls #1).”
My second option is the fantastic finale to the Firebird series – A Million Worlds with You by Claudia Gray. First in this series is A Thousand Pieces of You. I reviewed this with a 6 out of 10 (the 5 scale was too limited for me). Feel free to scan over my review post! I am also in the midst of the second book’s review which is Ten Thousand Skies Above You
Give me a few comments if you have read any of these – Love to know what you think!
