What's New On My Bookshelf #4


Welcome to another edition of...

What's New On My Bookshelf

Although I'm only featuring two books today, as I unfortunately haven't had an opportunity to buy heaps of books and do a big 'haul', I am still very excited to share these novels with you and then hopefully review them as soon as possible!

Here are my recent buys:

1. A Shadow's Breath by Nicole Hayes

Then, things were looking up for Tessa. Her mum was finally getting her life back on track. Tessa had started seeing Nick. She was making new friends. She'd even begun to paint again.

Now, Tessa and Nick are trapped in the car after a corner taken too fast. Injured, stranded in the wilderness, at the mercy of the elements, the question becomes one of survival.

But Tessa isn't sure she wants to be found. Not after what she saw. Not after what she remembered.

I must admit - I've actually already read this book!!! I needed to finish it quickly because I wanted to read it before going to Nicole Haye's launch of A Shadow's Breath, which was a very awesome night! It's incredible and I can't wait to share my thoughts with you all very soon!

2. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Passage, n.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them—whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home... forever.

I'm so excited to read this book, it sounds very interesting and I have heard heaps of positive things about it! ALSO CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS COVER!? IT LOOKS AMAZING ON MY BOOKSHELF!
