Title: Lord of Shadows (Dark Artifices #2) by Cassandra Clare
Genre: YA Fantasy
Emma Carstairs has finally avenged her parents. She thought she’d be at peace. But she is anything but calm.

But Mark has spent the past five years trapped in Faerie; can he ever truly be a Shadowhunter again?
And the faerie courts are not silent. The Unseelie King is tired of the Cold Peace, and will no longer concede to the Shadowhunters’ demands.

Happy 1st April Guys!
Hope you weren’t tricked into April Fools Jokes this morning.
I think this is actually my first ever post dedicated to a book haul and I am so excited to share what books I got with you. First I ordered 2 of these books of the internet and I then paid a trip to my local bookstore and library in order to check out what books they have lately. It’s been so long since I’ve visited either so it was really nice to finally get round to going again, I do have a ton of university work to be doing but I thought I would go ahead and pick some books up anyway so I can read and relax after a day of working on essays. Here’s what I picked up this month:
Books I purchased:
- The Silkworm – Robert Galbraith
- Career of Evil – Robert Galbraith
- The Bane Chronicles – Cassandra Clare
- Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare
Lady Midnight finally arrived and the cover is absolutely gorgeous. Although I am super excited to give it a read, i’m not sure which book I will start first with having so much uni work to do. I am actually reading The Drivers Seat by Murial Sparks at the moment so I can use it on one of my essays so I may start with one of the smaller books I got so I can read Lady Midnight when I can cut time slots out of my day to read it all. I’m anxious once I start I might not be able to put it down!
- Half Bad – Sally Green
- The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater
- A Thousand Nights – E.K Johnstone
I’m very surprised by my local library, I live in a small town therefore they don’t have a massive selection of books however they did have a new great selection of YA books so I’m sure i’ll be spending more time in their over summer. I have been seeing Half Bad by Sally Green over instagram a lot lately therefore I thought I would finally pick it up for myself and I have also heard great things about The Raven Boys and A Thousand Nights.
Thank you for reading, did you buy any books this month?
Also I would like to apologise for the quality of the images I used in this post, I really wanted to use a picture which I have taken myself however I only have my phone camera and the glare from the laminated covers of the library books has proved rather tricky and they haven’t come out as good as I hoped and they are a little hard to read. However I hope this hasn’t taken too much from the post quality and you still liked it. Let me know your thoughts in the comments and if you have read any of these books or have any recommendations for books I should put on my TBR list to try to read over summer and this year 🙂
My TBR list has been piling up for a while now, here are my top ten choices which I can’t wait to start reading once summer rolls around and I can finally have a life again away from Uni deadlines and exams.
- Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard
- Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince – J.K Rowling
- Divergent – Veronica Roth
- Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare
- Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas
- A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J. Maas
- The 5th Wave – Rick Yancey
- All the Bright Places – Jennifer Niven
- Me before You – Jojo Moes
- The Cuckoos Calling – Robert Galbraith (J.K Rowling)
I guiltily hold my hands up and admit it… Yes I am still yet to finish the Harry Potter series and also start Divergent! I am so behind I need to kick myself.
I am however actually attempting to read The Cuckoo’s Calling on my commutes into University therefore its taking me longer too read as I save it for my journeys, it is also my first Crime Fiction Novel.
What books are on your TBR list that you can’t wait to read this summer? Let me know in the comments, i’m sure i’ll be expanding my list off your suggestions!
