In anticipation of the arrival of my new Kindle in roughly a week or two (oh the agony of waiting!), I am making a list of books to load and read in it as soon as it gets here. Okay, I have been reading on my phone’s Kindle app but it’s not the same. Anyway, I want to make it special so here are some of the books I’m saving for reading on the Kindle:


Into The Still BlueThe concluding book to the Under The Never Sky trilogy. I liked the first two books and I am looking forward to see how things would play out between the characters.

Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it’s time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.

The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together.

Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won’t even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.

Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because Cinder isn’t just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, he’s also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.

In this final book in her stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.”


Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Now, ain’t this cover just Fierce with a capital F? Also a part of a trilogy, this concludes the fantastical Daughter of Smoke & Bone series. I can’t wait to read about Karou and Akiva and all the rest. Too bad, it won’t be released until April.

“By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can even be a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz.

Common enemy, common cause.

When Jael’s brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people.

And, perhaps, for themselves. Toward a new way of living, and maybe even love.

But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva, and, in the skies of Eretz … something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world.

What power can bruise the sky?

From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?”


Ignite MeYet another concluding book in a trilogy, this is the final book in the Shatter Me series. It would be released in February. There was a major turning point in the second book, and I can’t wait to see how that would affect the story in this book.

“Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she’ll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew-about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam-was wrong.

In Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi created a captivating and original story that combined the best of dystopian and paranormal and was praised by Publishers Weekly as “a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.” The sequel, Unravel Me, blew readers away with heart-racing twists and turns, and New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia said it was “dangerous, sexy, romantic, and intense.” Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and climactic end.”




BloodlinesFor a change, here’s one that begins a series. 😛 Bloodlines is the spin-off of the popular Vampire Academy series by the same author. The series is already into the fourth book, but so far I have not read even one since the original series left such a good impression on me and I don’t wanna tarnish that as of yet. Not that this is not good since there are a lot of rave reviews too, but I am just weird that way. Never mind.

Blood doesn’t lie…

Sydney is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of human and vampires. They protect vampire secrets – and human lives. When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she’s still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir – the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir – is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill’s guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the last place anyone would think to look for vampire royalty – a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. But instead of finding safety at Amberwood Prep, Sydney discovers the drama is only just beginning…”


The Maze Runner

I have had a copy of this book for quite some time now but have never been quite motivated enough to read it. But now that there’s a movie adaptation coming, I’m finally bumping this up the list just to see if it would be worth watching the movie.

“When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade-a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up-the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. 

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.”


And that’s it for now. Did you notice that they are all from the YA genre? Lately I haven’t encountered a non-YA book that’s piqued my interest. Oh, there are those Gillian Flynn novels Dark Places and Sharp Objects but I have already finished the former and in the middle of the latter. After that, nada. YA galore. 😛

So, you got any recommendations for good non-YA books? 🙂

    1. I’ve read Fight Club, watched the movie too. And another book, Rant. I think I have a couple other Palahniuk books here, will look for them too. Thanks for the suggestion! 😀

            1. I have actually started with Maze Runner before too, but stopped for some reason a few pages into it. I think it made way for another book too, just can’t remember which. 😛 I’ve read so many books, it’s hard to keep track.

  1. wow! You’ll be having a new kindle Ate? 😀 I’m happy for you! 😀

    I still don’t have an android phone, but I’m planning to buy an ipad mini, maybe after 3 months or so. We’re facing financial issues at home because of my groom to be brother :/ hayst.

    1. Yep, I ordered one directly from Amazon. I blogged about it last month, I think. I really cannoy function normally for long periods of time without reading.

      The new iPad mini is great, in fact it was on my -BER wishlist. 😉 So, abay ka sa kuya mo?

      1. Hindi po ba mahal ang shipping fee from Amazon? :O Sana I have time to read books din. 🙁

        Anyways po, my bro wants me to be one of the abay’s po, since 3 lang po kaming magkakapatid, me and my sister ih abay, pero I dont want po :/ Hindi pa din po magsink in sa utak ko na magpapakasal na siya 😛

        1. Kung papa-ship directly from Amazon mahal nga talaga. 😐 Pero a friend ordered too, then sea freight yung gamit for shipping (parang balik-bayan box ang peg) so mas mura. Mas matagal nga lang, but I save a bit naman on shipping. 😉

          How old is your bro? Abay ka na, once in a lifetime lang naman yun at iisa bro nyo. 😉

  2. I love your list! and yay to your new Kindle 😀 The Maze Runner is quick-paced, and action packed. I like that one. and hello, Perry and Akiva! <3

  3. wow sa tagal ng ignite me, hindi ko na maalala yung nangyari sa last book. haha

    i started maze runner before my kindle broke. now your post reminded me to upload it on my kobo.

    i usually read YA when im really stressed. and i usually look at your selections on twitter and goodreads. 🙂 YAs are like filipino telenovelas, nothing’s new -same plot, same characters, same drama- but addicting

    1. It hasn’t been that long.. or at least it seems that way for me. Thankfully, the last book was memorable enough for me to recollect at least some major details so I won’t be lost in the story when I read Ignite Me. 😛

      And now that you mention it, I do see the similarity of YA to telenovelas–at least in the addictive aspect. 😉

  4. Wow sis. May nakapila ka nang babasahin for 2014. I don’t even know what I’m going to devour this year. Of course, I’m waiting for the next book from Ransom Riggs and another installment from Rick Riordan. Other than that, I don’t know which book to pick up or download to my Kindle app on my iPad.

    1. Yeah, because I am THAT excited for my Kindle. 😉 Still looking for other books to load and read though, preferably not of the YA genre for a change. Btw, are you referring to the book next in the Roman demigods series? 🙂
