Last week I finished reading Beyond the Red by Ava Jae and The Vampire Games by Stephanie Archer. Both were fabulous reads. I thoroughly enjoyed each book and I'm so glad that I got the opportunity to read an ARC of each one.
*Side note: Serek is a precious cinnamon roll, pass it on.
The Vampire Games is Hunger Games meets vampires when graduating senior Bianka is captured by the secret league of vampires and must fight for her freedom. She thought her world was normal, she thought she had her future figured out, she thought she knew the people around her. Lies have been told and loyalties have been broken, Bianka must navigate her way through the web of the hidden world of the vampires. I do not read vampire books often but with The Vampire Games I found it refreshing and different. Read my full review here.
This week I plan on finishing Of Light and Darkness by Shayne Leighton and Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. Both have been interesting reads. Very unique from what I normally read.
Of Light and Darkness is categorized as New Adult.** It is different, but in a good way. The writing is more mature and a lot more descriptive. The first couple of pages took me in and did not let me go. It has been a long time since a book has captivated me in such a way. I am 100 pages within the book but I know this will be a wonderful and detailed read.
**New Adult is a new genre up where it falls between Young Adult and Adult Fiction. It is more mature, the characters are usually 18+ years old and deal with more mature situations.
Reflecting on my last Monday Update, Brennus still holds a special place in my heart, even his irish accent and his use of "moi chori". I actually used banjax when describing my recent baking episode. (It was awful I tried to make cookies and it failed epically) I said, "I banjaxed my cookies" Banjax means destroy. Yes Brennus still has an influence.
If you don't know who I am talking about check out my previous about the premonition series on my blog. :)

BUT there may be some spoilerly content in these reviews so I would just check out this post here or the first two book reviews.
Thank you so much for reading and I hope you guys have a lovely and happy week!
