January Book Haul!!

It's that time of the month again bookworms, where I show you yet another long list of books that have been added to my TBR that I swear will never get lowered! This month, I definitely have a lot of books that I'm super excited to be reading soon, and I cannot wait to share the new releases with you all!!

The Woman In Cabin 10 By: Ruth Ware
I received a copy of this new release from +Indigo | Chapters (Thank you!!). This cover looks really interesting and definitely dark!

This is the story of a journalist who writes for a travel magazine. As Lo Blacklock goes on a week cruise with a handful of cabins, it's nothing but pleasant. Everything is plush, parties are sparkling and the guests are elegant. But as the week goes on, a woman is thrown overboard, and problems begin to arise.
Talking As Fast As I Can By: Lauren Graham
I've been having my eye on this book for a while. I will admit that I haven't fully finished seeing Gilmore Girls for the very first time (I'm on Season 6, so I'm almost there!) but I totally LOVE IT! So being able to read the woman who played one of my favourite characters is super exciting!

This is a collection of essays from Lauren Graham in her life, love and working in Hollywood. A lot of behind the scenes with Gilmore Girls and Parenthood.
The Protector By: Jodi Ellen Malpas
I have been told many things about this novel, and I finally got my own copy to read it now!

Camille Logan is a daddy's girl and spoiled, yet she is determined to make her own life away from his money. While she lives on her own, she makes mistakes and is brought back into the media...not in a good way. But she was not prepared to crash into her ex-SAS sniper, that will change her life forever.
Those Girls By: Lauren Saft
This is another book that I happened to picked up based on the cover. Honestly, sometimes when I'm shopping and they have sales going on, I totally go blank and forget the books that I've been wanting to purchase. So I end up browsing the covers and pick a few random books that sound great!

This is the story of three girls in Philly. They are the best of friends and the party girls of the school, but does everyone really know them well? They each have their own secret, and you will dive into each of them throughout this novel. 
Before I Die By: Jenny Downham
So I had posted a while back a photo of one of Jenny's other novels on Instagram. I had a few people message me telling me their thoughts on the book, and one person had said I should check out this novel! Of course this person is like the Guru of novels, so I immediately bought it! (even though it was the last copy, and sort of damaged...)

This is about Tessa who has months left to live. Fighting against hospital visits, tests and drugs to help the pain, she makes a list of things to do before she dies. When she is released to lead a "Normal life" she sets out to cross off everything on her list...including sex.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts; A Cinematic Yearbook By: Scholastic Inc.
So, thank you so much to Scholastic Canada for sending me this yearbook! Honestly, when I opened it up, it looked so amazing inside! There was plenty of room to write down your own things and make it your own yearbook, with the aid of some sweet Harry Potter characters!

Imagine your first year at Hogwarts school. Packed with fun activities, pictures, and an 8 page fold out diary, you've got a packed yearbook to fill!
Bang By: Barry Lyga
I received an ARC copy of this to review by the lovely people over at Hachette Books Canada! Thank you!! This looked like a new and enticing novel, especially after reading the synopsis!

Sebastian Cody did something horrible. At four years old, he killed his infant sister accidentally with his father's gun. Now ten years later, he still holds the grief. With a new friend in the picture, he tries to distract himself from his darkest thoughts...could she be the thing to help him heal?
Wicked Cowboy Charm (Lucky Penny Ranch #4) By: Carolyn Brown
Thank you to the amazing Monisha from Forever Romance books for sending me this to review!! Honestly, you have such amazing recs and I cannot wait to read more of these!

Josie Dawson is new in town, but it doesn't take long to know Deke Sullivan is trouble...and hot. She won't be the next girl to land in his bed, so she keeps her distance, even if he's totally amazing with children and just cannot stay away. 
The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors Of Arizona #1) By: Rachel Van Dyken
Another novel sent to me from Forever Romance, and this sounds like an awesome twist on Cinderella!!

Jane isn't sure she that Cinderella got such a raw deal. But while Jane is busy waiting on tables, and a cleaning business with entitled sisters, she's not thinking about her own prince charming to arrive. Until a party with a broken shoe leave her wondering if maybe they do exist...
The Hating Game By: Sally Thorne
Well thanks to an awesome Blogger Friend @Mostlyyalit (Tiff) who I had met up with a while back for one of our Teen events! She had told my friend @floralsndragons and I about this book, and when I had turned around, there she had two copies from the shelves in her hands ready for us. Of course I trust my blogger friends, so I couldn't deny getting this novel!

Lucy and Josh hate each other. Not dislike, but Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of maneuvers as they sit across from each other, as executive assistants to co-CEO's of a publishing company...of course fire will build, and the heat may lead to the bedroom?

Ruthless and  Satisfaction (Lawless #1-2) By: Lexi Blake
So I've seen the first book all through Instagram seriously forever! I really wanted to pick it up right away, but then I found out it was part of a series, so I waited. Clearly I didn't have to wait too long for book two to come out, however I hear that book three is not coming out until the fall of 2017...

This is a contemporary romance series based on the Lawless siblings. Book one is about Riley Lawless who has been hired from Ellie Stratton to handle her delicate business matter. Clearly she's shocked by the attraction, but is there a way for Riley to keep it professional towards Ellie or will she break through his walls.

Book two is about Brandon Lawless whose on a mission. To obtain the information that will clear their father's name. He's willing to do whatever it takes, even seducing his enemy's assistant. But with her smile, looks and intelligence, he soon realizes it's much harder than he thinks.

I seriously can't wait to binge read all of these books because it's looking like a hot new series! 
Did I Mention I Miss You? (The DIMILY Trilogy #3) By: Estelle Maskame
So I've been waiting SO LONG for the third book in this trilogy to come out! I've been attracted to the look of this series for a long time, and slowly had to wait for each and every book to come on the shelves so I could finally collect them all!

For spoiler reasons, I won't discuss what book three is about, but I will have a review on this series as soon as I can! 
The Replacement Crush By: Lisa Brown Roberts
This was another novel that I had seen on the shelves and was immediately drawn to the cover art! After reading the synopsis, I really hope to add this to my immediate TBR soon!!

After book blogger (Coincidental?? I think not!) Vivian Galdi's longtime crush pretends their secret summer kissing sessions never happened, Vivian creates a list of safe crushes, determined to protect her heart. But nerd-hot Dallas, the sweet guy in town, sends the mission and Vivian's zing meter into chaos.
Summer at Willow Lake (Lakeshore Chronicles #1) By: Susan Wiggs
Honestly, this wouldn't be the type of book I would have found on my own. One of my best, and closest friends I know actually spent their time looking for a new book I would love for a gift. And boy did he do well!! I read the first few pages and was immediately hooked on this book! I then took to Goodreads and saw that there were like eleven books in this series! 11 BOOKS

Olivia Bellamy reluctantly trades a trendy Manhattan summer for her family's old resort camp to renovate the bungalow colony for her grandparents who want one last summer together filled with fun, friends and family...of course though, Connor Davis (an old flame) happens to still be in town and looking as hot as ever! 

I Want Superpowers By: Steven Bereznai
I received this book from the author himself for an honest review! Thank you!! Seriously can't wait to read this!

The Genetic Wars that turned most of the planet into a wasteland are over. The so-called "dregs" and superpowered "Supergenetics" now live separately from each other. But Supergenetic children are still born to dreg parents, and under repressive laws. 
Strange The Dreamer (Strange The Dreamer #1) By: Laini Taylor
So I received this ARC from Hachette Books Canada as well, and although I haven't actually read anything from Laini Taylor, I'm still excited to read a new series from her!

Lazlo Strange is a war orphan and a junior librarian whose always dreams. Since he was five, he's been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it...until the opportunity comes up and he is now on the adventure of a lifetime.
Defy The Stars (#1) By: Claudia Gray
This is the first book in a series, and I'm super excited to read it! The ARC cover I received is super gorgeous (Thank you +Hachette Book Group  )

Noemi is a young and fearless soldier of Genesis, a colony planet of a dying earth. But the citizens of Genesis are rising up and know that Earth's settlers will only destroy this planet the way they destroyed their own...and so a terrible war has begun.
Seven Days Of You By: Cecilia Vinesse
OH MY GOODNESS!! I've been wanting a copy of this ARC ever since I saw the cover reveal!! Huge thanks to Hachette Books Canada again for sending me a copy to review!

Sophia has seven days left in Tokyo before she moves back to the States. Seven days to say goodboy and leave her best friend...until Jamie Foster-Collins moves back to Japan and ruins everything... 
The Forever Summer By: Jamie Brenner
Another ARC sent to me by Hachette Books (Thank you!!) and I cannot wait to review this either!

Marin Bishop has always played by the rules, and it's paid off. Almost thirty, a handsome fiance and a prestigious career, she's received finally approval from her father...until one little mistake leads her unemployed and alone. Before she can call up her parents, a young woman appears, claiming to be her half-sister.
Fantastic Beasts: Cinematic Guide By: Scholastic Inc
Thanks to +Scholastic Canada for sending me a copy of this awesome book too!! I am seriously loving all of these new books and work being published and although I haven't read Harry Potter, I totally feel the fan base with this one.

This is basically a guide for the movie where it featured your favourite beasts, scenes and quotes from the movie.
