August TBR

August TBR (To Be Read):

I plan to read more in August as I will be in my own house and comfortable environment and I can go to the library more often. Also, I have been recommended a lot of books and I am determined to read many of them.  These are just some of the books that I shall be reading this month.

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
Kingdom Keepers Disney After Dark
Kingdom Keepers Disney At Dawn
City of Bones by Cassandra Claire
A Grimm Warning by Chris Colfer
A Court of Thorns and Roses
The Kiss of Deception
Obsidian Mirror
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner

Stitching Snow I’ve already finished as we are already part way through the month of August and I have to say it was one of the best books I’ve ever read.  Not only is it very well written, it is also a fairytale retelling set in the future.  Yes this is a sort of Fantasy/Sci-Fi book.  It is a retelling of Snow White so yes there are most of the elements.  The summary from the book is: Princess Snow is missing.

Her home planet, once known for lush landscapes, is now filled with violence, fear, and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his new wife as they attempt to punish the princess’s captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back-but that’s assuming she wants to return at all.

Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.

When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Bane’s arrival was far from accidental, and she’s pulled into the heart of a war she’s risked everything to avoid.
In her enthralling debut, R.C. Lewis weaves the tale of a princess on the run from painful secrets (and a poisonous queen). With the galaxy’s future-and her own-in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival!

You have to read this book! Essie is a very strong-willed, stubborn, and surprisingly lovable heroine. You’ll love this book if you enjoy fairytale retellings or sci-fi romance.

The Kingdom Keepers books I have read before but I am re-reading them so I can finish the last 4 books in the series which I haven’t read before.  

The last four books I have not read but they have been recommended to me so I have decided to try reading them.  I’ll let you know how they go!
