Caraval (#1) av Stephanie Garber

Welcome to Caraval, where nothing is quite what it seems.
  Scarlett has never left the tiny isle of Trisda, pining from afar for the wonder of Caraval, a once-a-year-week-long performance where the audience participates in the show.
  Caraval is Magic. Mystery. Adventure. And for Scarlett and her beloved sister Tella it represents freedom and an escape from their ruthless, abusive father.
  When the sisters' long-awaited invitations to Caraval finally arrive, it seems their dreams have come true. But no sooner have they arrived than Tella vanishes, kidnapped by the show's mastermind organiser. Legend.
  Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But nonetheless she quickly becomes enmeshed in a dangerous game of love, magic and heartbreak. And real or not, she must find Tella before the game is over, and her sister disappears forever.

Nya mål inför 2017:
Har bestämt mig för att inte har några nya mål inför 2017 utom endast ett och det är att läsa för nöjes skull! Recensionerna har jag fortfarande inte blivit bättre på och det beror på att jag har prioriterat annat före och dessutom inte haft så mycket tid för bloggen under större delen av 2016. Men recensionsexepmlaren har jag ändå tänkt att jag ska ta tag i under 2017 ifrån förra året. Skärpning får det bli på den punkten. Men det är tveksamt om någon annan recension kommer att läggas upp. Jag har tappat lite intresse för bloggandet i och med att jag känt att läsningen inte varit den bästa unde 2016. Men jag hoppas att intresset ska stiga igen i och med att jag inte kommer ha några *måsten* med varken bloggen eller läsningen. En stor eloge ska dock min syster ha som trots allt ändå fortsatt publicera inlägg här på bloggen!!

Dagens Bokutgivning #109

Freeks av Amanda Hocking

Welcome to Gideon Davorin's Traveling Sideshow, where necromancy, magical visions, and pyrokinesis are more than just part of the act...
  Mara has always longed for a normal life in a normal town where no one has the ability to levitate or predict the future. Instead, she roams from place to place, cleaning the tiger cage while her friends perform supernatural feats every night.
  When the struggling sideshow is miraculously offered the money they need if they set up camp in Caudry, Louisiana, Mara meets local-boy Gabe... and a normal life has never been more appealing.
  But before long, performers begin disappearing and bodes are found mauled by an invisible beast. Mara realizes that there's a sinister presence lurking in the town with its sights set on getting rid of the sideshow freeks. In order to unravel the truth before the attacker kills everyone Mara holds dear, she has seven days to take control of a power she didn't know she was capable of - one that could change her future forever.

Flower av Elizabeth Craft & Shea Olsen

These are the things that I've always wanted;
  To get the top grades in my class.
  To make my grandmother proud.
  And most of all, proof that I could succeed where the rest of my family had not: a Standford acceptance letter, early admission.
  My mother and my sister were obsessed with boys and love and sex. So obsessed that they lost sight of their futures, of what they wanted. And in the end, they lost everything.
  I'll never let a boy distract me. I promised my grandmother that.
  But that was before Tate.
  Before the biggest pop star on the planet took an interest in me.
  Before private planes and secret dates and lyrics meant for me alone.
  There's so much I don't know. Like why he left music. Where he goes when we're not together. What dark past he's hiding. But when we kiss, the future feels far away. And now... I'm not sure what I want.
