But no matter how much they open up to each other, Griffin’s downward spiral continues.

Carve The Mark by Veronica Roth

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not — their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world? Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power — something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows. Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuve, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive — no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive — or to destroy one another.

Forbidden to reveal himself to anyone other than his victims, X casts aside the Lowlands’ rules for Zoe.

Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab

Kate Harker is a girl who isn’t afraid of the dark. She’s a girl who hunts monsters. And she’s good at it. August Flynn is a monster who can never be human, no matter how much he once yearned for it. He’s a monster with a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost. Nearly six months after Kate and August were first thrown together, the war between the monsters and the humans is terrifying reality. In Verity, August has become the leader he never wished to be, and in Prosperity, Kate has become the ruthless hunter she knew she could be. When a new monster emerges from the shadows—one who feeds on chaos and brings out its victim’s inner demons—it lures Kate home, where she finds more than she bargained for. She’ll face a monster she thought she killed, a boy she thought she knew, and a demon all her own.

  1. I’m really excited for ACOWAR and Our Dark Duet, but I don’t really know much about these other books. I’ve seen The Inexplicable Logic of my Life basically everywhere, so I guess I’m going to need to check that one out (but i still need to read Ari and Dante).

    1. Those are probably two of my most anticipated on this list! I highly recommend Ari and Dante! It’s super fast paced and an easy read but it’s also beautiful! I’ve been waiting to read something new bu Benjamin Alire Saenz ever since!

  2. Schwab is an auto buy author for me and I feel like I should already be preparing myself for the book coma A Conjuring of Light will induce. I still need to read The Serpent King but I’ll still be adding Goodbye Days to my list. 😀
