The Masked Truth


Title: The Masked Truth
Author: Kelly Armstrong
Publication Date: October 13th, 2015

Riley Vasquez is haunted by the brutal murder of the couple she was babysitting for.

Max Cross is suffering under the shadow of a life-altering diagnosis he doesn’t dare reveal.

The last thing either of them wants is to spend a weekend away at a therapy camp alongside five other teens with “issues.” But that’s exactly where they are when three masked men burst in to take the group hostage.

The building has no windows. The exits are sealed shut. Their phones are gone. And their captors are on a killing spree.

Riley and Max know that if they can’t get out, they’ll be next—but they’re about to discover that even escape doesn’t equal freedom.

Why I Am Waiting...



I love Kelley Armstrong! This book is so different than anything I have read by her, though, so I really want to see how she does with something like this.

Top Ten Books On My Fall To-Be-Read list

Meme hosted by: The Broke and Bookish

 

Not going to lie, A LOT of these books are books from last years list that I never got around to!

 

 

1.The Fall



This was number one on my TBR LAST time I did this TTT and it is still here. I actually picked it up and had to put it down. I picked it up again during the summer, but it is NOT a summer read. So I want to get to it this fall, because if I remember right, what I did read was really good!


Enshadowed (Nevermore, #2)

2. Enshadowed


I loved the first book so much. It has to be, hands down, my top five favorite ever. And I had this book and was planning to dive in right after, but never did. I picked up another book and this got pushed to the side. And here I am, a year later, and still haven't read it. Hopefully I will get to this one and Oblivion in October.

Title: The Rose Society
Author: Marie Lu
Publication Date: October 13th, 2015
Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.

Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers that murdered her love, the Crown Prince Enzo Valenciano.

But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness?


Why I Am Waiting...



I listened to the first one when I was on light duty at work earlier this year and LOVED it. I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Marie Lu is just amazing and the story isn't like any other YA novel I have ever read. It is a lot darker than I thought, but I love it!

Series Update

Last year I made a blog post about my unfinished series. I had wanted to finish the series by this time this year. Well, that didn't happen. Not even close, either. I am here to give an updated list and hopefully have better luck this time around.

The name of the series is in bold and listed are the books I still have left it them. I have crossed off ones that I had read from my last update. Not very many, sadly.
