Title: The Ship of The Dead (Magnus Chase and The Gods of Asgard #3)

Author: Rick Riordan

Publisher: Disney Hyperion

Release date: 03/10/2017

Synopsis: Magnus Chase, a once-homeless teen, is a resident of the Hotel Valhalla and one of Odin’s chosen warriors. As the son of Frey, the god of summer, fertility, and health, Magnus isn’t naturally inclined to fighting. But he has strong and steadfast friends, including Hearthstone the elf, Blitzen the dwarf, and Samirah the Valkyrie, and together they have achieved brave deeds, such as defeating Fenris Wolf and battling giants for Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Now Magnus and his crew must sail to the farthest borders of Jotunheim and Niflheim in pursuit of Asgard’s greatest threat. Will they succeed in their perilous journey, or is Ragnarok lurking on the horizon?

Thoughts: I am SO excited about finally reading this book. And yet, I really don’t want to say goodbye to Magnus. Out of all Riordan’s books, this series is my favourite and The Hammer of Thor was such a great book. I promise I’ll talk to you about this book real soon 😉.

Title: Without Merit

Author: Collen Hoover

Publisher: Atria Books

Release date: 03/10/2017

Synopsis: Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing it deserves is forgiveness.
The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.
Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her—until she discovers that he’s completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines, when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix.
Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.

Thoughts: After reading Maybe Someday a couple of weeks ago, I feel like reading every Colleen Hoover books EVER. I’ve been waiting for that new novel for so long and it seems so different from her other books, I’m so excited to read it.

Title: Origin (Robert Langdon #4)

Author: Dan Brown

Publisher: Doubleday Books

Release date: 03/10/2017

Synopsis: Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.

As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.

Thoughts: A new Dan Brown movie is always a big deal. And for the longest time I’ve been meaning to read his books. This series just sounds fascinating. Have you read it? I’d love to know your thoughts?

Title: Turtles All The Way Down

Author: John Green

Publisher: Dutton Books for Young Readers

Release date: 10/10/2017

Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

Thoughts: After a few years of absence, John Green is back with a new book. I have to admit the synopsis sounds really intriguing, I especially like the investigation element. I’m really curious to discover this book.


Title: The Silver Mask (Magisterium #4)

Author: Cassandra Clare et Holly Black

Publisher: Scholastic Press

Release date: 10/10/2017

Synopsis: A generation ago, Constantine Madden came close to achieving what no magician had ever achieved: the ability to bring back the dead. He didn’t succeed . . . but he did find a way to keep himself alive, inside a young child named Callum Hunt.
Now Call is one of the most feared and reviled students in the history of the Magisterium, thought to be responsible for a devastating death and an ever-present threat of war. As a result, Call has been imprisoned and interrogated. Everyone wants to know what Constantine was up to-and how he lives on.
But Call has no idea.
It is only when he’s broken out of prison that the full potential of Constantine’s plan is suddenly in his hands . . . and he must decide what to do with his power.
In this spellbinding fourth book of Magisterium, bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare take us beyond the realm of the living and into the dangers of the dead.

Thoughts: I love Cassandra Clare, I love middle-grade books and I love fantasy. So obviously, this series is perfect for me. And yet I haven’t read it yet 🙃. As they say, So many books, so little time. Hopefully, I’ll read this series real soon and we’ll talk about it.


Ok, so tell me everything… Which books will join your TBR pile in October?

Enjoy your reads,

Gaëlle
