My Winter to Spring Reading List
A big happy new year to all! I am very excited for the arrival of 2016 and am going to kick off the year with another list of books to read! A big thanks to both Dale Eadeh and Taylor Hansen for reccomending two new authors they swear by. With these two new authors, my winter to spring reading list is complete! I am always excited to read new authors and learn new craft so I just can not wait to get started! As before many sequels are on my list so be warned of possible spoilers!
1) "Rebel Springs" by Morgan Rhodes
When King Gaius announces tha a road is to be built into the forbidden mountains, physically linking all of Mytica, he sparks a long-smoking fire in the hearts of the people that will forever change the face of this land, forcing dethroned princess Cleo, reluctant heir Magnus, haunted sorceress Lucia, and desperate rebel Jonas to take steps they never could have imagined.
Book #2 of the Fallen Kingdoms series
2) "The One" by Kiera Cass
The time has come for one winner to be crowned. When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown-or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose-and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.
Book #3 of The Selection series
3) "Trouble on Triton" by Samuel R. Delany
In a story as exciting as any science fiction adventure written, Samuel R. Delany's 1976 SF novel, originally published as "Triton," takes us on a tour of a Utopian society at war with our own Earth. High wit in this future comedy of manners allwos Delany to question gender roles and sexual expectations at a level that, 20 years after it was written, still make it a coruscating portrait of "the happily reasonable man," Bron Helstrom-an immigrant to the embattled world of Triton, whose troubles become more and more complex, till there is nothing left for him to do but become a woman. Against a background of high adventure, this minuet of a novel dances from the farthest limits of the solar system to Earth's own Outer Mongolia. Alternately funny and moving, it is a wide-range tale in which character after character turns out not to be what he-or she-seems.
4) "Dark Places" by Gillian Flynn
Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas." She survived-and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club-a secret society obsessed with notorious crimes-locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She'll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club-for a fee. As Libby's search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started-on the run from a killer.
5) "The False Prince" by Jennifer A. Nielson
Four boys. One treacherous plan. An entire kingdom to fool. In a faraway land, civil war is brewing. To Unify his kingdom's divided people, a nobleman named Conner devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king's long-lost son and install him on the throne. Four orphans are forced to compete for the role, including a defiant and clever boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner's motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword's point-he must chose to play prince or he will certainly be killed. His rivals will be devising their own plots as well, so sage must trust no one and keep his thoughts hidden.
As sage moves from a rundown orphanage to Conner's sumptuous palace, layer upon layer of deceit unfolds, until finally, a truth is revealed that may very well prove more dangerous than all of the lies taken together.
6) "Unforgiven" by Lauren Kate

And his freshest Hell is high school, where Lilith, the girl he can't stop loving, is serving out a punishment for his crimes.

If he succeeds, Lilith will be allowed back into the world, and they can live their lives together. But if he fails...there's a special place in Hell just for him. Tick-tock. Spread your wings and cry as bad boy dark angel Cam finally reveals his anguished heart in the epic new FALLEN novel, Unforgiven.
