BOOKS I WAS READING AT 3AM

Hello fellow book lovers,

So I was reading on my kindle at 3am in the morning and then I got the idea for this blog post. These are the books I couldn’t put down, books that kept me up all night. These are not all, only some of the books otherwise it would’ve been a very long list.

 

1. Cinder

This was a light read, so quick paced, I was completely sucked in and I couldn’t put it down until I finished. Synopsis below:

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.


 

2. Half Bad

Half Bad: cover of first novel by Sally Green, predicted to be next Harry Potter or Twilight Saga

I enjoyed this read immensely, it was a quick read and I loved the characters.

Beware: May cause heart ache and crying. A lot of crying

Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Nathan lives in a cage: beaten, shackled, trained to kill. In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live amongst humans, Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world’s most terrifying and violent witch, Marcus. Nathan’s only hope for survival is to escape his captors, track down Marcus, and receive the three gifts that will bring him into his own magical powers—before it’s too late. But how can Nathan find his father when there is no one safe to trust, not even family, not even the girl he loves?


3. Legend

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death.
