Bout of Books 10 – Sign Up & Goals Post!

Bout of Books
Hello everyone! I’m going to be taking part in Bout of Books again. However, since it’s during exam time I have a tiny goal of just 2 books. My normal pace is about 1 book a week, so I’m hoping to double that. Before I show you the books I’m hoping to read though, here’s where you can find everything about Bout of Books.

Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott
I’ve been wanting to read this one ever since it came out, and after hearing a friend rave about it, I think it’s about time I read it!
Summary: Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can’t determine what’s wrong, her parents decide to move to Montana for the fresh air. She’s lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she’s helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It’s an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother’s illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there’s no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can’t trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?

Victoria Scott’s breathtaking novel grabs readers by the throat and doesn’t let go.

Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop
I’ve had this as an ARC for quite a while, and after starting it a little bit I feel bad about taking so long to read it. Hopefully I can get it read!
Summary: The Darkness has had a Prince for a long, long time. Now the Queen is coming.

For years the realm of Terreille has been falling into corruption, as the powerful Queens who rule it have turned to cruelty.

But there is hope – a prophetic vision has revealed the coming of a Queen more powerful than any other. And once the foundations of her power – father, brother, lover – are in place, she will emerge from the darkness, bringing freedom.

For she is the living myth, dreams made flesh; not just any witch, but Witch.
