My Weekly Book Haul #8



STSmall
Friday Finds is something that was started over on ShouldBeReading and Stacking the Shelves over at TyngaReviews, I am in love with all of these as I love finding other blogs to follow and books to read through these! So check them all out and see what you find, Stacking the Shelves has a lot of participants as well which is great. This is basically a way for me to show what books I have received, borrowed or bought each week.

Hello!

This week I finally got my head around Edelweiss, which was not good! Especially since a lot of great titles; including all Harper Teen, were downloadable without having to request them. This means that I had to download them all, I can't help myself! So my haul this week is rather large. I went on relief to another library, which is never good, They're stock will be different and I'll end up borrowing way too many; which is exactly what happened this time. So apologies, if this seems ridiculously large this week.

For all the books I got this week, whether physical or digital, I shall include a cover photo and plot description. Plot description will either come from the back of book for physical, or Goodreads if not.

The Physical!
10 Borrowed, 1 Bought! 

This Week I Borrowed:

SurviveSurvive
Survive
by
Alex Morel

'Are you okay?' he says again, wanting to move on.
'I should be dead.'
'I understand.'
'No you don't. I tried to kill myself last night, in the bathroom, before the plane crashed. That's why I survived.'

When Jane steps on the plane her plan is clear - Go to the bathroom. Take the pills. End it all.
The plane crash changes all that.
Jane wakes in the mountains, surrounded by wreckage, with just one other survivor. Together, they must fight their way through the blizzards, and back to civilisation.
Now more than anything, she wants to live.


Parallel
Parallel
by
Lauren Miller

Abby always had a plan for her life. And she always thought it was up to her to make that plan.
But that was before she woke up in someone else's version of her life, with memories that didn't belong to her.
What would you do if your past wasn't your own anymore?
...If your future belonged to someone else?
How would you live if you only had today?


How to Love
How To Love
by
Katie Cotugno

This is a love story. But it's not what you think.
This is not a first kiss, or a first date. This is not love at first sight. This is a boy and a girl falling in messy, unpredictable, thrilling love. This is the complicated route to happiness that follows. This is real. This is life.
This is how to love.


Young, Gifted and Dead
Young, Gifted & Dead
by
Lucy Carver

Welcome to St Jude's Academy, the elite boarding school where the students are beautiful, talented and dangerously out of control.
New girl Alyssa is on a scholarship and feels like an outsider - she's not even that smart, apart from her freaky photographic memory. Then one day her room-mate Lucy is found dead. It looks like suicide, but, torn apart by guilt and grief, Alyssa is convinced that things aren't as they seem. Soon a jolted memory puts her on the trail of a sinister secret that might hold the clues to Lily's suspicious death.
But Alyssa is in too deep, and she's about to find out that some things are better forgotten.

Against all odds, 17-year-old Gene has survived in a world where the general population has eaten humans to near extinction. The only remaining humans, or hepers as they are known, are house in domes on the savannah and studied at the nearby Heper Institute. Every decade there is a government sponsored hunt. When Gene is selected to be one of the combatants he must learn the art of the hunt - but also elude his fellow competitors as suspicions about his true nature grow...


Boy Nobody
Boy Nobody
by
Allen Zadof

Who is Boy Nobody?
The perennial new kid at school: New town, new name... new mission.

But this time is different. The stakes are deadlier. The memories are surfacing. And Boy Nobody is about to find out who he really it.


Shooting Stars
Shooting Stars
by
Allison Rushby

Meet Josephine Foster, or Zo Jo as she's known in the biz. The best pint-sized paparazzi out there. Jo loves shooting the stars, and she certainly doesn't mind doing whatever it takes to get that one perfect picture.
But then Jo is sent on a major undercover assignment to shoot Ned Hartnett - teen superstar/heartthrob and the only celebrity who's ever been kind to her - at an exclusive retreat facility in Boston. Among the cheesy group therapy sessions and embarrassing "team building" exercises, Jo finds there's more to the reclusive Ned than meets the eye - and maybe more to herself too.

Rock On
by
Denise Vega

Introducing Ori Taylor and The Band To Be Named Later!
You say you've never heard of them? Just wait. TBTBNL is sure to hit it big at this years Battle of the Bands, and you'll want to say you know them then... Front man Ori Taylor is looking forward to stepping out of his older brother's shadow, learning to perform in public, and rocking the Battle. Oh, and maybe finally working up the nerve to talk to a girl in person instead of just over email. After all, who doesn't love a lead singer?
But when older brother Del suddenly returns from college, he expects Ori to step back into his role of little brother, just when Ori is starting to come into his own. With his confidence wavering, will Ori be able to overcome his stage fright and lead the band to rock glory? Will The Band To Be Named Later ever get a real name? Will their best performances remain in the garage?


Splintered (Splintered, #1)
Splintered
by
A. G. Howard

Alyssa Gardner hears the thoughts of plants and animals. She hides her delusions for now, but she knows her fate: she will end up like her mother, in an institution. Madness has run in her family ever since her great-great-great-grandmother Alice Liddell told Lewis Carroll her strange dreams, inspiring his classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
But perhaps she's not mad. And perhaps Caroll's stories aren't as whimsical as they first seem.
To break the curse of insanity, Alyssa must go down the rabbit hole and right the wrongs of Wonderland, a place full of strange beings with dark agendas. Alyssa brings her real-world crush - the protective Jeb- with her, but once her journey begins, she's torn between his solidity and the chanting, dangerous magic of Morpheus, her guide to Wonderland.
But no one in Wonderland is what they seem to be- not ever Alyssa herself...


This Week I Bought
(well, the boyfriend bought me)

The Tragedy Paper
The Tragedy Paper
by
Elizabeth Laban

"What you are about to hear, the words, the music, my downfall, will serve you better than you ever could have imagined. I am giving you the best gift you could ask for - your Tragedy Paper."
Every year at an exclusive private boarding school in New York State, the graduating students uphold a historic tradition - they must swear an oath or secrecy and leave behind a "treasure" for each incoming senior.
When Duncan Meade inherits the room and the secrets of Tim Macbeth, he uncovers evidence of a clandestine romance, and unravels the truth behind one of the biggest mysteries in the school's history.


Bought on Kindle:

Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)
Half-Blood
by
Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-- well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options, become trained sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting then waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.


The Goddess Test (Goddess Test, #1)Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test, #2)The Goddess Inheritance (Goddess Test, #3)
The Goddess Test, Goddess Interrupted and The Goddess Inheritance
by
Aimee Carter

Every girl who has taken the test has died. Now it's Kate's turn.
It's always been just Kate and her mum - and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear that her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerising. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld - and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy - until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride and goddess.
If she fails...


Incarceron (Incarceron, #1)
Incarceron
by
Catherine Fisher

Incarceron -- a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology -- a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and typical medieval torture chamber -- chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe her was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison -- a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era and an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device -- a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn's escape is born.

Unfortunately, Friendship's police are more adept at looking for lost pets than catching killers. So Ruth's best friend, Kippy Bushman, armed with only her tenacious Midwestern spirit and Ruth's secret diary (which Ruth's mother had asked her to read in order to redact any, you know, sex parts), sets out to find the murderer. But in a quiet town like Friendship- where no one is a suspect- anyone could be the killer.

Panic
Panic
by
Lauren Oliver

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.
Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where he stakes are high and the pay-off is even higher. She's never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.
Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he's sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he's not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.
For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them - and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

Avalon
by
Mindee Arnett

Of the various star systems that make up the Confederation, most lie thousands of light-years from First Earth - and out here, no one is free. The agencies that govern the Confederation are as corrupt as the crime bosses who patrol it, and power is held by anyone with enough greed and ruthlessness to claim it. That power is derived from one thing: metatech, the devices that allow people to travel great distances faster than the speed of light.
Jeth Seagrave and his crew of teenage mercenaries have survived in this world by stealing unsecured metatech, and they're damn good at it. Jeth doesn't care about the politics or the law; all he cares about is earning enough money to buy back his parents' ship, Avalon, from his crime-boss employer and getting himself and his sister, Lizzie, the heck out of Dodge. But when Jeth finds himself in possession of information that bot the crime bosses and the government are willing to kill for, he is going to have to ask himself how far he'll go to get the freedom he's wanted for so long.

Exile
Exile
by
Kevin Emerson

Catherine Summer Carlson knows how to manage bands like a professional- she's a student at the PopArts Academy at Mount Hope Hight, where rock legends Allegiance to North got their start. Summer knows that falling for the lead singer of her latest bands is the least professional thing a manager can do. But Caleb Daniels isn't an ordinary band boy- he's hot, dreamy, sweet-singing, exiled-from-his-old-band, possibly-with-a-deep-dark-side band boy. And he can do that thing. That thing when someone sings a song and it inhabits you, possesses you, and moves you like a marionette to its will.
Summer also finds herself at the centre of a mystery she never saw coming. When Caleb reveals a secret about his long-lost father, one band's past becomes another's present, and Summer finds it harder and harder to be both band manager and girlfriend. She knows what the well-mannered Catherine side of her would do, but she also knows what her heart is telling her. Maybe it's time to accept who she really is, even if it means becoming an exile herself.

Cruel Beauty
Cruel Beauty
by
Rosamund Hodge

Based on the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, Cruel Beauty is a dazzling love story about our deepest desires and their power to change our destiny.
Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom-all because of a foolish bargain struck by her father. And since birth, she has been in training to kill him.
With no choice but to fulfil her duty, Nyx resents her family for never trying to save her and hates herself for wanting to escape her fate. Still, on her seventeenth birthday, Nyx abandons everything she's ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, destroy his enchanted castle, and break the nine-hundred-year-old curse he put on her people.
But Ignifex is not at all what Nyx expected. The strangely charming lord beguiles her, and his castle- a shifting maze of magical rooms-enthrals her. 
As Nyx searches for a way to free her homeland by uncovering Ignifex's secrets, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to him. Even if she could bring herself to love her sworn enemy, how can she refuse her duty to kill him? With time running out, Nyx must decide what is more important: the future of her kingdom, or the man she was never supposed to love.

I'd been wanting to start on my Harper titles but kinda scared that I'd be left with cliffhangers. The wait for the sequel would then be so very painful!

  24. A lot of good books here. Survive is a really good book, but it's different. I cried so hard reading it just because it deals with very raw emotions. And you're going to read The Hunt! Great haul!

    Thanks for visiting my haul.

    1. Thanks! I know it looks like it's very different from anything I have read before. Excited for The Hunt, but not sure what I'll think.

  25. Parallel!!!! I loved that book, it was hands down one of the best alternate universe themed books ever! I really hope you enjoy it! I got Cruel Beauty and Uninvited too! There are both very different but I'm most looking forward to Cruel Beauty. Great haul. Thanks for stopping by :)

  31. Wow! I went crazy with the Edelweiss titles myself back when I got autoapproved, so I definitely feel you. I can't wait to read all of those! Enjoy them!!

    1. I know, it's hard to say no when they are free. So many seem to let me download without requesting, but I thought they would let you know if you had auto-approval! I hope so! =D

  32. Wow, that was a lot of books!! :) Happy reading!

  33. Holy wow that's a lot of books! I see you recently got auto-approved for Harper on Edelweiss? I downloaded all those books when that happened to me, too :D
    So excited for all of them!
    Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. I think so, I don't know how you're supposed to tell. I can download all the titles on there, but it's the first time I've really used it so who knows! I love it =D

  34. AWESOME! You got lots of books! Even Panic!!! Woot! I wish I could too! So jealous! >.< The Hunt is great, you should read it! :) Oh yes, I asked you if you would like to join our ARC Challenge to reduce the number of your ARCs given by Netgalley/Edelweiss/ARCs from author or publishers. ;) It would help if you could stop by. Thank you! And I'm a new follower. :D

  35. Wow, what an amazing haul! I know Edelweiss is dangerous. I guess anyone can download all their titles now? What's up with that? Oh well, it's good for us, I guess! Enjoy your books, and thanks for visiting Books, Bones & Buffy!

    1. Yeah by the looks of things you can just download them all! You're welcome =D

  36. Isn't Edelweiss the best and the worst? It's so fun to request and get books, but then you realized you have altogether too many. :) It looks like you had a good week, though! I didn't realize HarperTeen's titles were all for download... That's kind of odd. But awesome! Happy reading!
