Hello there avid readers! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful week. It has been frigid here in good old Boston, MA. But I can deal with it. It will warm up eventually.
But other than that it has been nice outside, especially when the wind is not blowing. But enough of that. Here is my weekly reading list to help you decide what to read next. All always, all synopsis’s are courtesy of Goodreads. Happy reading! Oh, and Happy Valentines Day!

“Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.
Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she flees Kenettra with her sister to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers who nearly killed her.
But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good when her very existence depends on darkness?
Bestselling author Marie Lu delivers another heart-pounding adventure in this exhilarating sequel to The Young Elites.”

“The enemy has risen from the grave. Together we slayers must stand, or one by one we will fall.
Ali Bell’s crew of zombie slayers thought they’d won the war against Anima Industries, the evil company responsible for capturing and experimenting on zombies in an effort to discover the secret to immortality. In the last epic clash, the slayers lost many of their crew and closest friends. But Frosty, the ice man himself, has not recovered from one casualty in particular — the love of his life, Kat Parker.
On the path to self-annihilation, Frosty receives a message from beyond — Kat’s spirit returns, insisting he partner with rogue slayer Camilla Marks. Frosty will do anything for Kat. Except that. Camilla’s betrayal caused Kat’s death.
But when Anima rises from the grave stronger than ever, Frosty, Camilla and all the slayers will have to work together to survive. And one broken slayer will learn that sometimes the line between hate and attraction is blurred… and the road to redemption may mean letting go of the past and grabbing hold of the future.”
