I know that I am doing this post a bit late but anyway here are the books that I am planning to read this pending months of summer. The books are a mixed of YA, Mystery, Romance and Thriller. Some of them have been sent to me and others I want to read as I have heard so many good things about them!
An Unkind devotion by Elle Eaves.
“If your love was the trigger for a trap that would destroy everything you care about, could you cut out your heart before it was too late?
Seventeen-year-old Sophia Harden has spent her life being uprooted. She knows better than to believe her mother when she says this move to small town Grimmell, NY is their last—and at first that’s fine with her. Grimmell doesn’t exactly roll out the welcome mat, and her mother’s calculated attempts to push Sophia on Ethan Warwick, handsome young scion of Grimmell’s first and richest family, leave both Sophia and Ethan doing everything in their power to avoid each other.
But forces neither of them is aware of are working toward a sinister goal—one that could spell ruin for both of them.
For unbeknown to Sophia, she carries within her a dark power: a curse capable of a devastation no one can recover from. And her connection to Ethan is at the core of a wicked plot for revenge that began long before her birth.”
