What is next to read

These books will be next to read after I finish “Not like the Movies” by Kerry Winfrey. I did purchase these books. I also did pre order one book but it won’t be out until March!

Ann Gimpel: I did read the first book of Cataclysm where I fell in love with it. It left me wanting to know more. So I decided to purchase the last three books. Vampires, shifters, witches and more for such adventures! Plus the covers are stunning.

Jennifer L. Armentrout – I have read quite a few of her books which are always amazing. I wanted to to see how these two books turn out! I have seen people read them and enjoy them very much. Plus aren’t the covers soooo pretty!!? I blame the covers for wanting to own a dagger.

Update Reading

Fall is coming….
The leaves are starting to change colors here.

My reading has been up and down lately due to life! I have been getting some E-Arc’s on Netgalley and trying to keep up with that along with the library books that I have checked out. Plus my brain is thinking of one gazillion things….anyone else have this problem?

At my work today I saw this:DeathlessDI read the summary of the book…yup it’s going into to my to read pile but I have to read the first book.

  • Justina Ireland
  • Series: Dread Nation
  • Hardcover: 560 pages
  • Publisher: Balzer + Bray
  • Date: February 4, 2020

The book is about:
The sequel to the New York Times bestselling epic Dread Nation is an unforgettable journey of revenge and salvation across a divided America.

After the fall of Summerland, Jane McKeene hoped her life would get simpler: Get out of town, stay alive, and head west to California to find her mother.

But nothing is easy when you’re a girl trained in putting down the restless dead, and a devastating loss on the road to a protected village called Nicodemus has Jane questioning everything she thought she knew about surviving in 1880s America.

What’s more, this safe haven is not what it appears—as Jane discovers when she sees familiar faces from Summerland amid this new society. Caught between mysteries and lies, the undead, and her own inner demons, Jane soon finds herself on a dark path of blood and violence that threatens to consume her.

But she won’t be in it alone.

Katherine Deveraux never expected to be allied with Jane McKeene. But after the hell she has endured, she knows friends are hard to come by—and that Jane needs her too, whether Jane wants to admit it or not.

Watching Jane’s back, however, is more than she bargained for, and when they both reach a breaking point, it’s up to Katherine to keep hope alive—even as she begins to fear that there is no happily-ever-after for girls like her.

 

The first book is Dread Nation.

DreadN

  • Justina Ireland
  • Hardcover: 464 pages
  • Publisher: Balzer + Bray
  • Date: (April 3, 2018)

What it is about:
Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania—derailing the War Between the States and changing the nation forever.

In this new America, safety for all depends on the work of a few, and laws like the Native and Negro Education Act require certain children attend combat schools to learn to put down the dead.

But there are also opportunities—and Jane is studying to become an Attendant, trained in both weaponry and etiquette to protect the well-to-do. It’s a chance for a better life for Negro girls like Jane. After all, not even being the daughter of a wealthy white Southern woman could save her from society’s expectations.

But that’s not a life Jane wants. Almost finished with her education at Miss Preston’s School of Combat in Baltimore, Jane is set on returning to her Kentucky home and doesn’t pay much mind to the politics of the eastern cities, with their talk of returning America to the glory of its days before the dead rose.

But when families around Baltimore County begin to go missing, Jane is caught in the middle of a conspiracy, one that finds her in a desperate fight for her life against some powerful enemies.

And the restless dead, it would seem, are the least of her problems.

On a dark, wintery night, alone in the library, she takes her first glance into one of the antique novels and finds herself transported to 1892 England staring into the eyes of handsome and dashing hero Jack Ridgewell. As each chapter passes she learns you can truly fall in love with a character in a book, that book boyfriends are real and Emme must choose between the real world, and his.

To Read Pile: The Painter’s Daughter

I want to read this book!!!

THE PAINTER’S DAUGHTER
Julie Klassen
464 Pages
Bethany House Publishers
Publication date: 12/01/2015

After his brother abandons Sophie Dupont, the daughter of a portrait painter, with child, Captain Stephen Overtree proposes to her to save her from scandal, but soon their marriage of convenience promises something more.

Sophie Dupont assists her father in his studio, keeping her own artwork out of sight. In private, she paints the picturesque north Devon coast, popular with artists–including handsome Wesley Overtree, who seems more interested in Sophie than the landscape.

Captain Stephen Overtree is accustomed to taking on his brother Wesley’s responsibilities. Near the end of his leave, he is sent to find his brother and bring him home. Upon reaching Devonshire, however, Stephen is stunned to learn Wesley has sailed for Italy and left his host’s daughter in serious trouble.

Stephen feels duty-bound to act, and strangely protective of the young lady, who somehow seems familiar. Wanting to make some recompense for his own past failings as well as his brother’s, Stephen proposes to Miss Dupont. He does not offer love, but marriage “in name only” to save her from scandal. If he dies in battle, as he fears, she will at least be a respectable widow.

Desperate for a way to escape her predicament, Sophie finds herself torn between her first love and this brooding man she barely knows. Dare she wait for Wesley to return? Or should she elope with the captain and pray she doesn’t come to regret it?
