Hiatus

Hi everyone!! Hope all is well with you in the land of books! Jaime and I have decided that we are going on a little break from reading and blogging because of school and exams as such. We will be back in December! xoxo

Waiting on Wednesday 154: The Bane Chronicles

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine


Name: The Bane Chronicles
Author: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, and Maureen Johnson
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Release Date: November 11th, 2014

A Collection of Ten Short Stories centred around Magnus Bane. Each short story is going to be published as an ebook followed by a Full Single Print Coming 2014

Ever wondered about the enigmatic, mysterious warlock Magnus Bane? The only character to appear in every Shadowhunter book, Magnus has a past even more shrouded in mystery than his present. I’ve teamed up with acclaimed YA writers Maureen Johnson and Sarah Rees Brennan to create the Bane Chronicles, the back (and front) story of Magnus told in ten linked tales.

Look for short stories like Vampires, Scones and Edmund Herondale; The Rise and Fall of the Hotel Dumort; Saving Raphael Santiago and What To Buy The Shadowhunter Who Has Everything (And Who You’re Not Officially Dating Anyway). Each story will be available as an ebook on a monthly basis starting April 16 with the tale of What Happened In Peru. 

Each story will be released monthly online for the next ten months — and then for those who don’t read e-books, the full print collection will be available in bookstores and wherever else books are sold after the Chronicles have been finished.

My Thoughts:
While this book has been released chapter by chapter over the past year, I have been waiting until the full book comes out to read it. I love Cassandra Clare's shadowhunter series, and Magnus Bane is one of my favorite characters. I can't wait to read all about his long life.

Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers. Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds. 

They are armed only with a volatile secret: proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IANN, the disease that has killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained. But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the "rehabilitation camps" housing thousands of other Psi kids.

Meanwhile, reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire.

My Thoughts:
Alexandra Bracken blew me away with The Darkest Minds. I will forever read every book she writes, no matter what it's about. But, for the time being, I look forward to reading the third book in this series, and I highly recommend it to anyone who has not read it!

Can you hear Atlantia breathing?

For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.


Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.

My Thoughts:
Ally Condie caught my attention with her Matched series, and while it wasn't my favorite series in the world, I still keep her on my list of authors to check out. When I saw she was coming out with a new book, I knew that I had to give it a try. I will definitely be picking up a copy of this when it comes out!

Seventeen-year-old Skylar has been haunted for as long as she can remember by fleeting yet powerful sensations that something is horribly wrong. But despite the panic attacks tormenting her, nothing ever happens, and Sky’s beginning to think she’s crazy. Then she meets a mysterious, otherworldly boy named Win and discovers the shocking truth her premonitions have tapped into: our world no longer belongs to us. For thousands of years, Earth has been at the mercy of alien scientists who care nothing for its inhabitants and are using us as the unwitting subjects of their time-manipulating experiments. Win belongs to a rebel faction seeking to put a stop to it, and he needs Skylar’s help--but with each shift in the past, the very fabric of reality is unraveling, and soon there may be no Earth left to save.

Book Trailers: Round Eleven


Hi everyone! Here are some of the book trailers that we at Catching Books loved watching from the past few months. We hope you like them, too!







I'm so excited to read The Iron Trial! I've been reading Cassandra Clare for as long as I can remember, and I love most of the things she writes. I'm also looking forward to Trial by Fire, particularly because I loved Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed series.

What are your thoughts? Do you like book trailers? Which one do you like the most?
