OK, so I got 19 posts in 7 days, it was a pretty decent week, I read a good number of great books, and got the cover and title of Cast in Oblivion by Michelle Sagara, which I'm really excited about, that I might just reread Cast in Deception! What about you guys? Happy reading!

So this week I want to read Death Doesn't Bargain, Puddin', Star-Touched Stories, Strange New World, and 206 Bones.

Death Doesn't Bargain is the second historical fantasy title in New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon's Deadmans Cross series. Where Deadmen tell their tales, and every soul is damned or redeemed by the final choices they make.

The Deadmen are back...

But so are the demons who have broken free of their eternal prison and are bent on mankind's destruction. The worst of the lot is Vine, determined to claim their lives for taking hers. She will see the world burn...and has the perfect lure to destroy them all. One of their own.

Kalder Dupree has never known a day of mercy. Born to the cruelest of mer-races, he sacrificed himself for his crew and is in Vine's hands. He expects no mercy or rescue.

Yet Cameron Jack is determined to set Kalder free. As a Hellchaser, it's her calling, and she cannot allow even a not-so-innocent to be tortured for an act of kindness that spared her damnation.

To defeat evil, it sometimes takes an even worse evil, and Cameron is willing to do whatever she must to make this right. If Vine thought she had her hands full before, she hasn't seen anything nearly as powerful as Cameron's resolve.
It is a companion novel to Dumplin', which follows supporting characters from the first book in the months after Willowdean's star turn in the Clover City pageant.

Millie Michalchuk has gone to fat camp every year since she was a girl. Not this year. This year she has new plans to chase her secret dream—and to kiss her crush. Callie Reyes is the pretty girl who is next in line for dance team captain and has the popular boyfriend. But when it comes to other girls, she’s more frenemy than friend. When circumstances bring the girls together over the course of a semester, they will surprise everyone (especially themselves) by realizing they might have more in common than they ever imagined.
Three lush and adventurous stories in the Star-Touched World.

Death and Night

He was Lord of Death, cursed never to love. She was Night incarnate, destined to stay alone. After a chance meeting, they wonder if, perhaps, they could be meant for more. But danger crouches in their paths, and the choices they make will set them on a journey that will span lifetimes.

Poison and Gold

Now that her wish for a choice has come true, Aasha struggles to control her powers. But when an opportunity to help Queen Gauri and King Vikram's new reign presents itself, she is thrown into the path of the fearsome yet enchanting Spy Mistress. To help her friends, Aasha will have to battle her insecurities and perhaps, along the way, find love.

Rose and Sword

There is a tale whispered in the dark of the Empire of Bharat-Jain. A tale of a bride who loses her bridegroom on the eve of her wedding. But is it a tale or a truth?
Dahlia 16's life is a lie. The city of Lakeview isn't a utopia that raises individuals for the greater good; it is a clone farm that mass-produces servants for the elite. And because Dahlia breaks the rules, her sisters--the 4,999 girls who share her face--are destroyed. She and Trigger 17, the soldier who risked his life for hers, go on the run, escaping into the wild outside the city walls. But it turns out Dahlia has one remaining identical, one who shouldn't even exist.

Waverly Whitmore is teenage royalty, a media sensation with millions of fans who broadcasts her every move--including every detail of her wedding planning, leading up to the day she marries Hennessy Chapman. Waverly lives a perfect life built on the labors of clones like Dahlia. She has no idea that she too is a clone . . . until she comes face to face with Dahlia.

One deadly secret. Two genetic sisters. And a world that isn't big enough for both of them.


  1. Strange New World sounds good. I thought I'd read the first book but don't see it in my LibraryThing. I have enjoyed many of the author's other books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. I know! And the first book was really fantastic, so hopefully you'll be able to read it :) Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  2. Louisa well done, 19 posts in 7 days...AMAZING! Have you future scheduled them or published them all this week?

    I really need to get to my copy of Dumplin, I'm yet to read it.

    And the new Rachel Vincent book sounds amazing. I enjoyed one of her series but then it got a bit tedious and long so I stopped, I will need to finish it. I hate living loose ends with series'.

    Paperback Princess

    1. Thanks! I future schedule them, I had all of 2018 posts done in 2018. And me, too! Opps! And it was a really great book, and it's only a 2 book duology. Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  3. I’ve heard so many good things about Puddin’. I might have to read that one. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!
