Book Haul!

     I have collected quite a few books recently and have been dying to share!


In The Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken- This book is the third and final book in the Darkest Minds trilogy. It follows Ruby and the friends she makes along her journey. The children in the world have been affected by a disease giving them one of the powers below, which are categorized by colors. 

     1. Greens- Intellengence 
     2. Blues- telekinesis 
     3. Yellows- electricity 
     4. Oranges- mind control 
     5. Reds- fire 
     The unaffected adults have put the kids in basically what are concentration camps. Ruby escapes with the help of a friendly adult and meets people along the way of trying to find the cure and free the camps. She faces plenty of difficulties along the way. It has one of the best romances I've ever read, and is full of action. This trilogy is definitely one of my favorites of all time. 

Legend by Marie Lu- This is the first book in the Legend trilogy. I basically know nothing about this book other than it has dual perspective and it is dystopian. I've heard that it is action packed and has some romance. Sounds like a new favorite too me! I can't wait to read it. 

Magisterium: The Iron Trials by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare- this was a must-have for me considering Cassandra Clare had something to do with it! I love everything she has every written. I know Holly Black is an Incredible writer as well. I also know very little about this book other than it follows a boy named Callum and MAGIC.  I know, I know, it sounds like Harry Potter. Yet, I feel that it is insane to comparethe two series just because they have magic in them. I'm am SUPER. Excited to read this. 

Cinder & Scarlet by Marissa Meyer- These are the first two books in the Lunar Chrinicles Series. They are fairy tale retellings (which I love!) I know that the first one is a retellings of Cinderella and that the main character, Cinder, is a cyborg. That was enough to draw me in. 

Marched trilogy by Ally Condie- I have heard very mixed reviews on these books. My teacher read the trilogy and loved them. I'm dying to find out what these books are even about. (Hey Mallory, did you ever think about reading a synopsis?) I hate reading to much about the books before I read them for two reasons, 1. I want to be surprised and have a honest opinion on the book. 2. SPOILERS! 

The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks- I received this book as a gift from my friend. I refused to see the movie without reading the book, so she got it for me. Though I've yet to read it, it sounds good. Yes I did read the synopsis. A young couple falls in love and then something forces them apart. Then, they run into each other and fall back in love. I think. Okay, so it's been a while since I've read the back cover, but hey I tried!

Sylo by D. J. MacHale- I bought this book because of the cover. I know it has something to do with the army taking over an island (off of New York, maybe?) because of a serious disease outbreak. The back cover says "They came from the sky." All I know, is that it sounds freaking awesome. 

So these are all the books I've collected lately, I think. I hope you enjoyed this haul! Don't forget to follow me here, and on bloglovin'. Feel free to comment your thoughts on my terrible ability to describe a book or even know what it's about for that matter!
