On My Shelf: Replica by: Jenna Black

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.

This was a Book Outlet purchase. It sounds so good and I really do love that cover. This one has a really cool sci fi concept and I am definitely still intrigued by this one.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman . . . one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.

Waiting On Wednesday #260: The Beast's Heart by: Leife Shallcross

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine
It spotlilghts upcoming releases that we are dying to read.

Add To Goodreads
"A sumptuously magical, brand new take on a tale as old as time—read the Beast's side of the story at long last.

I am neither monster nor man—yet I am both.

I am the Beast.

The day I was cursed to this wretched existence was the day I was saved—although it did not feel so at the time.

My redemption sprung from contemptible roots; I am not proud of what I did the day her father happened upon my crumbling, isolated chateau. But if loneliness breeds desperation then I was desperate indeed, and I did what I felt I must. My shameful behaviour was unjustly rewarded.

My Isabeau. She opened my eyes, my mind and my heart; she taught me how to be human again.

And now I might lose her forever.

Lose yourself in this gorgeously rich and magical retelling of The Beauty and the Beast that finally lays bare the beast's heart." 

I love all things Beauty and the Beast, so of course I am looking forward to this one.

The Beast's Heart will be released on May 3, 2018.
What are you waiting on?

Book Review: Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3) by: Robin LaFevers

Release Date: November 4, 2014
from HMH Books for Young Readers
Goodreads | Amazon

"Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.

She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn't mean she has..."

My Thoughts:

What a way to round out this trilogy! This was such a good book and I am so happy Annith finally got her time to shine. She is so strong, but also so compassionate and is so much more than she seems and she is a fantastic heroine.

Annith grows so much over the course of this book and I love how she came into her own. She wants answers and she will stop at nothing to get them. I loved that she started making decisions for herself and for her happiness. Also I loved that she was a badass.

The new hero we meet, Balthazaar, may be my favorite hero of the three books. And it hurts me a little to say because I loved Beast, but there was something about Balthazaar. He was dark and broody and charming and I’m just a sucker for that. And of course I loved the romance and their dynamic together.

The plot in this book was wonderful. There were new elements introduced that I really enjoyed and I also loved getting answers to some of the plot points that have been woven throughout the trilogy. Finally, I figured out what was up with the Abbess and gosh that question had been plaguing me so much, so I was happy to get my answers. And we also got our resolution concerning the Duchess and I was very happy to see how her story played out.

There was a lot I loved about this book. I loved the romance and I loved the story line and I loved the characters, but my absolute favorite thing about this book was the strong bond between Annith, Ismae, and Sybella. They have such a strong connection and I adored how they always supported and loved one another. There was no cattiness or backstabbing or judging; there was just love and support and helping one another when they needed it most. I am always here for strong and positive female friendships.

Mortal Heart was such a good read and I’m really glad I finally got around to finishing this series. I couldn’t be happier with the way this series all came together.
