Kayla:

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare

I’ve been meaning to read this for a while.  I don’t own it yet so it won’t be a TBR for this month for now but still want to read in the future. KEEP!

 

Marked (House of Night, #1)

 

Marked (House of Night #1) by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast

I’ve heard some great things about this, I’ve been eyeing it for a while and want to at least give the first book a shot.  Keep.

 

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)

 

Red Queen (Book #1) by Victoria Aveyard

This is a great week for me.  This book sounds really interesting, if I wasn’t on a book buying ban I think I’d get this now.  Keep.

 

Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled Us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars

 

Rise of the Rocket Girls by Nathalia Holt

Has anyone else seen the movie that just came our earlier this year?  I think it takes place a little after this book but I’m not sure.  I’m really curious to read this book and the other (I’m blanking at the name at the moment) and see how they compare or if they even cover the same timeframe or just close.  Keep.

First Women: The Grace and Power of America's Modern First Ladies

First Women: The Grace and Power of America’s Modern First Ladies by Kate Andersen Brower

Doesn’t anyone else have the urge to read this book?  We always hear about the Presidents but I want to know more about the first ladies and women in history in general.  This sounds like it has great potential to be a wonderful book.  Keep.

 

Total Kept 5; Total Dropped 0.  I’m totally okay with this.

 

Neko:

The Key to Rebecca

 

The Key to Rebecca by Ken Follett

Since moving to Alexandria I have learned tons about the different wars the world has faced through the ages and this book is right up that alley. Sounds fascinating and who doesn’t love a good Natzi bad guy? Keep

 

 

The Assassins of Tamurin

 

The Assassins of Tamurin by S.D. Tower

The word assassin is what caught my attention, yes I have issues. The synopsis however is far less eye catching… Shank it

 

 

 

 

Boy Nobody (The Unknown Assassin, #1)

 

Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff

This sounds awesome! The Pretender meets… Something, but man is it cool sounding! And anti-hero instead of a hero? Keep

 

 

 

Star of the Morning (Nine Kingdoms, #1)

Star of the Morning by Lynn Kurland

This one I am kind of on the fence about, it sounds interesting but… Almost like it is lacking something I’m just not sure what. I want to give it a try though so… Keep

 

 

Across the Nightingale Floor (Tales of the Otori, #1)

 

Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn

Again, it sounds awesome! But… Still gonna give it a try because I love Ninja and Japan. Still… Keep

 

 

 

Keep 4 Drop 1 I’m always shocked when I drop one… Still a good week overall!

What do you guys think? What books did you drop and which did you keep?
