Friday Finds #4 – August 21 2015

21 Aug

There’s actually more on my list this week than last week! I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing, because I definitely added more books to my to-read list than books I added to my read list. But anyways.

Friday Finds is a weekly meme created by A Daily Rhythm where you show all of the books you’ve recently discovered. Last week my list was primarily the Amulet graphic novel series. This week I have actual books, so yayay. And we’re off:

The Archived (The Archived, #1)The Unbound (The Archived, #2)House of Rain: Tracking a Vanished Civilization Across the American SouthwestPoison Study (Study, #1)Darkfever (Fever, #1)The House of Shattered WingsThe Mirror Empire (Worldbreaker Saga, #1)Gates of Thread and Stone (Gates of Thread and Stone #1)Clipped Wings (Clipped Wings, #1)The Darkest Part of the ForestIce Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes, #2)

11 books this week! They are:

The Archived and The Unbound by Victoria Schwab. These two are not the first books I’ve seen by her, but I have yet to actually read any of them. From what I’ve heard, these are supposed to be pretty decent.

House of Rain: Tracking a Vanished Civilization Across the American Southwest by Craig Childs. I rarely add nonfiction to my list, but when I do it’s always about something weird. This is a book that tries to work out what happened to the Anasazi people. For those of you unfamiliar, these were a group of people who lived in what is present day Las Vegas-y area. Their civilization and technology rivaled that of the Mayans. And then they disappeared. Wiped off the map with no indication written or otherwise what happened to them. It’s unsettling, and I want to know more.

Poison Study by Maria V Snyder. As of yet, I have heard nothing but positive things about this one. Looking forward to it. (and the cover is so pretty!)

Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning. I’ve decided to try urban fantasy :”D

The House of Shattered Wings by Aliette De Bodard. This one takes place in a post-biblical-apocalyptic Paris. I’ve read a fair few post-apoc books, but very few if any set after the biblical apocalypse. People tend to shy away from it for some reason. I think it’s terrifying and fascinating. But mostly terrifying.

The Mirror Empire by Kameron Hurley. All I know about this one is that it’s a fantasy that does a bit of gender-role reversal. The women in this novel supposedly are more aggressive than the men, the ones that lead tactical war, etc. I’m hoping it’ll be really good :”D

Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M Lee. Honestly, this was a cover book for me. No idea what it’s about other than it’s fantasy. The cover made me want to read it.

Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting. I actually think this is a new adult. Not sure. This was another blind-add.

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black. I’m late on the bandwagon for this one. Looking forward to it regardless though!

Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch. This is the sequel to Snow Like Ashes, which I rated and reviewed earlier this summer. I’m sooo excited for this next book!

And that’s it for me for this week! Also, completely unrelated, but an Ulta just opened up in my town. I’m so excited. My favorites post for August should have some fun things in it.

      You’re welcome! It was your Nintendo book tag post that pulled me in honestly, haha. And will do – I hope you don’t mind me tagging you in tags, because I’m notorious for that. :”D
