I got quite a few books this week. The first book I got, Memoria is an adult dystopia. You don’t see many of those so I was immediately intrigued. The society in the book Memoria is run by corporations.

Prison Nation is a young adult book. It’s about a young girl who is born in a prison. She believes in the rules of her prison nation but she begins to question her beliefs as she grows up.

The next book isn’t my usual cup of tea. The Bloodletter’s Daughter is a historical romance. I was interested in this book because of the time period and because of the location. It takes place during the 17th-century reign of the Hapsburg Empire in Old Bohemia. I know very little of that place or time so I look forward to learning more about it.

Stained sounds like it’s about angels. I’m pretty sure it’s about angels. It’s about Nephilim. That’s angels right?

The Weird Girls is by an author I met on Twitter. It’s a prequel novella to her book Sealed with a Curse which is due out on December 31st. I plan on reviewing it next week.

Parallel is an alternate reality story. I’ve always been intrigued by such stories. The “what if’s” have always crossed my mind. It should be an interesting read.

The next two books are books one and two of the Patrick Shea Mystery Series. This is also not in my usual range of reading materials. I was interested in this series because it said in the blurb that if you like Law and Order UK you’ll like this book. I love that series and I do love British mysteries. Three’s a Crowd is  a novella while A Killing in Kensington is a full length novel. I can’t wait to dive into these! It’s been too long since I read a good British mystery.

That’s it from me this week. See you next week and have a fantastic weekend!
