Hey Nerdy Peeps! Let’s talk about books that have been on my Goodreads TBR I need to read. There’s a lot of them so this post will probably be in a couple of parts. So, let’s get on to part 1!
Goodreads TBR Part 1
I’ll start from the book that has been on there the longest to the most recent one added.
The Ghost and the Goth
I added this book in 2015 when I first started using Goodreads, and it’s a book that I still want to read today. I’m a sucker for cute paranormal books and this one seems perfect.
Alona Dare–Senior in high school, co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Homecoming Queen three years in a row, voted most likely to marry a movie star… and newly dead.
Will Killian–Senior in high school, outcast, dubbed “Will Kill” by the popular crowd for the unearthly aura around him, voted most likely to rob a bank…and a ghost-talker.
Another paranormal book, I need to get my hands on. This one, of course, is about werewolves!
For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can’t seem to live without.
Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human… until the cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It’s her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human—or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.
Spiderwork (Apocalypto #2)
Honestly, I chose this book for the cover, then I read the blurb and now I want to add it to my collection. I should also read the first book in the series before I get to this one.
Her fate was to hold the world together. His destiny was to tear it apart.
As a child, Durga was chosen by the goddess to save humanity from sterility and extinction. Soon she’ll be eighteen and have to serve as a chalice – to provide natural-born heirs to kings and more souls for the universe. Khai, the scion of Luxor, has different ideas about the new world order. When he falls hard for Durga, he isn’t afraid to show it. Khai offers Durga the love she thought she could never have – but accepting him will destroy everything she’s been commanded by the goddess to build.
Meanwhile, Jake Ardri now heads an emerging city-state and desperately wants Char Meadowlark to be his queen. But as king of his city, Jake is commanded by the goddess to provide natural-born heirs. Can Char share Jake with a beautiful chalice, trained to take Jake to the heights of sexual ecstasy?
Betrayal (The Descendants #1)
I thought this book was going to go along with the Disney movie The Descendants, but it doesn’t. In fact, it sounds a lot better!
After a life-altering event, Cordelia has an unexpected encounter with Evan, the mysterious boy from her dreams, who reveals who and what she is, a descendant of the Greek gods. At that moment everything she knows of her world is a lie, and she must leave the present and go into the past to assume the role she was put on this earth for, safeguarding her ancient empire amidst evil forces that toil hastily to destroy it.
In a race against time, Cordelia must decide if she is truly a part of this dangerous world, or risk defying the gods, and ultimately lose the boy who has put a claim on her heart.
