TBR Thursdays

tbrthursday

Hi everyone! It’s time for another TBR Thursdays which is a weekly segment that highlights books, ebooks, and ARCs that I own and have been in my TBR forever. At the end of the year, I’ll do a recap to see how many of these books I actually read.

If you want to help me tackle my neverending TBR, share your thoughts and recommendations with me.

Today’s pick is…

After a thousand years of peace, the battle between Light and Dark has resumed.

On her eighteenth birthday, Princess Evelayn of Éadrolan, the Light Kingdom, can finally access the full range of her magical powers. The light looks brighter, the air is sharper, and the energy she can draw when fighting feels almost limitless.

But while her mother, the queen, remains busy at the war front, in the Dark Kingdom of Dorjhalon, the corrupt king is plotting. King Bain wants control of both kingdoms, and his plan will fling Evelayn into the throne much sooner than she expected.

In order to defeat Bain and his sons, Evelayn will quickly have to come into her ability to shape-shift, and rely on the alluring, but mysterious Lord Tanvir. Not everyone is what they seem, and the balance between the Light and Dark comes at a steep price.

Here’s another ARC I got from Yallwest last year. Like all my other physical ARCs, which I had planned to read, I have yet to get to this one. It’s just I requested so many eARCs on Netgalley not thinking I would get approved, but I did, so now I’m trying to get through them all. Only thing is…. I cannot stop myself from requesting… One day, I will have an 80% or above feedback ratio on Netgalley and I will read all the ARCs (ebooks and physical) I’ve received… hopefully.

Have any of you read this book? What did you think?

What are some ARCS you’ve had on your TBR forever that they’ve been released and you still haven’t read them?

synopsispic

Sally’s search for Earth isn’t off to a good start: chased out of her hotel room and into the broom closet of a spaceship, she’s accidentally become a stowaway on the Alliance Flagship, Traveler.

But when sabotage and murder show the crew’s true colors, Zander and Blayde are forced to stay and help them out of their mess. Lies, drama, and deceit lead them light years away to a mysterious planet on the edge of the galaxy, where the crew must band together just to stay alive. Which would be much easier if they didn’t have to deal with a diva first-mate, a droid with a religious obsession, and Blayde’s Ex whose brain is a spaceship.

Finding Earth has to be put on the back burner, as Sally’s stuck tending alien boo-boos – and she still has no idea what she’s doing. And she might live long enough to get off the planet in one piece.

I absolutely love the Starstruck series by S.E. Anderson. It’s unique, outrageously silly, positively entertaining, and an incredibly fun sci-fi adventure! It’s definitely one of my favorite series, so I’m super excited to for this book to come out already. I recently received my advance reader copy so I cannot wait go jump back into this amazingly and delightfully awesome series!
