Last 5 Books I’ve Read #2
For the last month, I’ve either been in a reading slump or a contemporary mood. It’s been a very few busy couple of weeks for me. I’ve started back at uni, and have been trying to maintain a balance between that, my bookshop job and my internship. It’s been a little crazy and I’ve only been able to read a couple of books.
But, I am feeling a little bit better at the moment and I think it’s slowly starting to simmer down – until the end of August and Melbourne Writers Festival that is. However, other than that – I am good.
So today, I thought I would share the last five books that I have read. That have all been contemporary, and two are re-reads.
Point of Origin by Rebecca Yarros: It’s been ten years since the wildfire that turned their small town to ashes, taking the lives of fathers and their elite hotshot crew.
It’s been six years since Sebastian Vargas since left the town and Emerson Kendrick behind. Breaking her heart and leaving without an explanation. And now he is back.
Bash is trying to bring back the old Hot Shot crew, with the 10-year anniversary coming up, time is ticking. But him being back doesn’t just bring memories of all those who died.
Emerson and Bash and like fire together and fire burns. Can they come together or will their past year them apart.
Ignite by Rebecca Yarros: Colorado is calling him home, needing every Legacy-born firefighter to successfully rebuild their fathers’ team. In Legacy, Colorado, River Maldonado buried his father alongside his elite Hotshot team.
In Legacy, Colorado, River Maldonado buried his father alongside his elite Hotshot team. Ten years later, he has followed in his footsteps—fighting fires in the mountains of Alaska with his brother.

Tied Up To You by Erin Fletcher: After an ‘accidental’ kiss, both Luke Jackson and Malina Hall know they’re in trouble.
Luke and Malina have been best friends for some time now, but that’s all it has been. Expect Luke has always known how amazing Malina is. After, their kiss, everything is a little … awkward. But, she likes him too right? Yet, even if they get together will it work? He is the next big star in hockey, and now one of his team mates has shown some interest in Malina.
As her best friend, Jackson should get out of the way. But if there’s one thing he’s learned from hockey, it’s that you have to go for what you want, even if it means falling flat on your face.
Rebel by Rebecca Yarros: She’ll defy his every expectation.
She’s Penna Carstairs. The Renegade they call Rebel. There’s no rule in extreme sports she hasn’t broken, no gender barrier she hasn’t demolished.
When Penelope and Cruz met in a bar in Vegas, the last thing he thought they would so is illegally BASE jump. And spent quite a night together and now Cruz can’t get Penna out of his head.

No Limits by Ellie Marney: A companion novel to her ‘Every’ trilogy, No Limits follows Harris Derwent who isn’t exactly the good guy.
After his unsuccessful attempt to help Rachel Watts, Harris has landed himself in hospital and unemployed. He is still stuck in the country and at his father’s peril. He needs to make money fast and being a runner for a drug cartel is where Harris lands himself.
Amita Blunt is the police sergeant’s daughter. Getting involved in Harris’s case was never part of the plan. But working at the hospital, she’s invisible – which makes her the ideal contact for a boy feeding information back to the police…

I am also currently reading – or listening to Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel. I am absolutely loving it. There is about 2 hours to go and just wow things are intense alright. I never thought I would get into audio books, but they are amazing for train rides – which I do about 4 times a week or so.
