My TBR list is a meme hosted by Michelle at Because Reading which aims to help knock a few books off our TBR piles by letting everyone else vote on what we should read!
One of my goals for 2019 is to focus on series, so this month I’ve picked three books from my endless list of series to catch up on. For all three of these series, I only need to read one book to either catch up or finish, and I have the book needed on my shelves already, so it’s just a case of deciding which to start with!
** POTENTIAL SPOILER WARNING: This month I’m featuring sequels, so the synopses for these potentially contain spoilers for earlier books. **
Sarai has lived and breathed nightmares since she was six years old.
She believed she knew every horror, and was beyond surprise.
She was wrong.
In the wake of tragedy, neither Lazlo nor Sarai are who they were before. One a god, the other a ghost, they struggle to grasp the new boundaries of their selves as dark-minded Minya holds them hostage, intent on vengeance against Weep.Lazlo faces an unthinkable choice – save the woman he loves, or everyone else? – while Sarai feels more helpless than ever. But is she? Sometimes, only the direst need can teach us our own depths, and Sarai, the muse of nightmares, has not yet discovered what she’s capable of.
As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel’s near fall, a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, and the mysteries of the Mesarthim are resurrected: Where did the gods come from, and why? What was done with the thousands of children born in the citadel nursery? And most important of all, as forgotten doors are opened and new worlds revealed: must heroes always slay monsters, or is it possible to save them instead?
‘Do you need my help?’
They called him Orphan X. Evan Smoak used to be a government secret weapon. Then he ran and became the man you call on when you’ve nowhere else to turn.
This time it’s a teenage runaway called Joey. Like Evan she’s no innocent: she was brought up inside the same programme that raised him.
Now Evan must find Joey before those hunting her do. Which is where the trouble begins. Because this might not be about Joey at all. And if it’s not, then it must be about Evan.
But finding out why could kill them both …
The world is on the brink of apocalypse. Zero Day has come.
The only thing more terrifying than millions of spiders is the realization that those spiders work as one. But among the government, there is dissent: do we try to kill all of the spiders, or do we gamble on Professor Guyer’s theory that we need to kill only the queens?
For President Stephanie Pilgrim, it’s an easy answer. She’s gone as far as she can-more than two dozen American cities hit with tactical nukes, the country torn asunder – and the only answer is to believe in Professor Guyer. Unfortunately, Ben Broussard and the military men who follow him don’t agree, and Pilgrim, Guyer, and the loyal members of the government have to flee, leaving the question: what can be more dangerous, the spiders or ourselves?
