Stuff I Got This Week


When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, her world begins to unravel. She doesn’t know that paranormal forces in a much darker world are the ones pulling the strings. Not until identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into Kennedy’s room and destroy a dangerous spirit sent to kill her. The brothers reveal that her mother was part of an ancient secret society responsible for protecting the world from a vengeful demon — a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night. 

Now Kennedy has to take her mother’s place in the Legion if she wants to uncover the truth and stay alive. Along with new Legion members Priest and Alara, the teens race to find the only weapon that might be able to destroy the demon — battling the deadly spirits he controls every step of the way.

It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone. 

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Gerald Faust knows exactly when he started feeling angry: the day his mother invited a reality television crew into his five-year-old life. Twelve years later, he’s still haunted by his rage-filled youth—which the entire world got to watch from every imaginable angle—and his anger issues have resulted in violent outbursts, zero friends, and clueless adults dumping him in the special education room at school. 

Nothing is ever going to change. No one cares that he’s tried to learn to control himself, and the girl he likes has no idea who he really is. Everyone’s just waiting for him to snap…and he’s starting to feel dangerously close to doing just that.

If Unbreakable is even half as good as Icons it will be great. I haven't read anything by the authors of These Broken Stars, but is sounds good. Somehow I have still not read anything by A.S. King. Clearly there is something wrong with me that I need to resolve. 
That's what I got this week, what did you all get?


  1. Wow! More of These Broken Stars! Hope you enjoy it as well! Haven't requested this one, but starting to think I should since nearly everyone has it!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. These Broken Stars has been on my wish list ever since I first heard about it, and I'm just loving the cover of it. I can't believe you haven't read anything by A.S. King. You have to add The Dust of 100 Dogs, her first book, to to your to-read list ASAP. It's so good! Anyhow, happy reading! :)

  3. Nice! I have These Broken Stars but Reality Boy sounds really good and I like the cover!
