book haul

Book Haul #15

So it’s been a hot while since I’ve done a book haul and honestly I haven’t bought that many books in the three months since my last haul.  However I do have a few and I’ve finally gotten around to taking photos of them (and attempting to find room to put them on my shelves) and writing up this haul.  Before I begin I’d like to announce that I’m now an affiliate for the Book Depository so in full disclosure, the links to purchase the books in this post will give me a small commission.

You can read my review of the first book in this series, Prophet, HERE.  While it is classified as Christian I strongly believe that this story, plot and characters will appeal to fans who aren’t religious.  It read just like a ‘normal’ fantasy and the first book was marketed as ‘Fantasy meets Old Testament’.


(THIS BLURB IS FROM PROPHET SO THERE WON’T BE ANY SPOILERS)

Ela Roeh of Parne doesn’t understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She’s undignified and bad-tempered, and at age seventeen she’s much too young. In addition, no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as Parne’s elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite’s prophet, Ela knows she will die young.

Yet she can’t imagine living without Him. Determined to hear the Infinite’s voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite’s word to a nation torn apart by war. There she meets a young ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela battles how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite.

This is one of the Christian books I read earlier this year and loved.  I’ve read it twice this year so far and really enjoyed it.  It’s a Robin Hood-esque retelling.  My Goodreads review was; “I know I haven’t read a lot of Christian lit – mostly because half of it is preachy and the other half is plain old boring – but this was subtle, yet clear, and I loved it. In my experience and belief it was believable and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel.”


Though once a baron’s daughter, Lady Merry Ellison is willing to go to any lengths to protect the orphaned children of her former village. Dubbed “The Ghosts of Farthingale Forest,” her band of followers soon become enemies of the throne when they hijack ill-gotten gold meant for the king.

Timothy Grey, ninth child of the Baron of Greyham, longs to perform some feat so legendary that he will rise from obscurity and earn a title of his own. When the Ghosts of Farthingale Forest are spotted in Wyndeshire, where he serves as assistant to the local earl, he might have found his chance. But when he comes face-to-face with the leader of the thieves, will he choose fame or love?

The Improbable Theory of Ana & Zak

by Brian Katcher

Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance

DSC_0030

The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak is Stonewall Book Award-winning author Brian Katcher’s hilarious he said/she said romance about two teens recovering from heartbreak and discovering themselves on an out-of-this-world accidental first date.

It all begins when Ana Watson’s little brother, Clayton, secretly ditches the quiz bowl semifinals to go to the Washingcon sci-fi convention on what should have been a normal, résumé-building school trip.

If slacker Zak Duquette hadn’t talked up the geek fan fest so much, maybe Clayton wouldn’t have broken nearly every school rule or jeopardized Ana’s last shot at freedom from her uptight parents.

Now, teaming up with Duquette is the only way for Ana to chase down Clayton in the sea of orcs, zombies, bikini-clad princesses, Trekkies, and Smurfs. After all, one does not simply walk into Washingcon.

But in spite of Zak’s devil-may-care attitude, he has his own reasons for being as lost as Ana-and Ana may have more in common with him than she thinks. Ana and Zak certainly don’t expect the long crazy night, which begins as a nerdfighter manhunt, to transform into so much more…
