Well, it is that time of the year again! The end of 2017, wow, time really flies! Despite school, I did manage to hit my reading goal (90)! And I also discovered many great books that I want to share with you guys!
Ren Crown series by Anne Zoelle: Young Adult Fantasy
At the magic world’s most elite school, time and glittering evil stalk Ren Crown’s steps. In a world where layers of magic create worlds on top of our own–worlds where almost anything is possible–some rules still can’t be broken, and Ren is desperate to overturn society’s most sacred law.
On campus, animated creations, enchanted gadgets, and marvelous machines vie with the students themselves: mischievous engineers, diabolical tacticians, battle-hardened warriors, and terrifying roommates. But even amidst an eclectic and powerful student body, there is something off about Ren’s magic…and the wrong people have started to notice.
Where art comes alive and the bonds of destiny are forged, Ren will find the answer to who and what she is.

A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas: Fantasy
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin–one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin–and his world–forever.
October Daye series by Seanan McGuire: Urban Fantasy
October “Toby” Daye, a changeling who is half human and half fae, has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the Faerie world, retreating to a “normal” life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world has other ideas…
The murder of Countess Evening Winterrose pulls Toby back into the fae world. Unable to resist Evening’s dying curse, which binds her to investigate, Toby must resume her former position as knight errant and renew old alliances. As she steps back into fae society, dealing with a cast of characters not entirely good or evil, she realizes that more than her own life will be forfeited if she cannot find Evening’s killer.
