The Vampire Wish
by Michelle Madow

TWILIGHT MEETS ALADDIN in this hot new fantasy series by USA Today bestselling author Michelle Madow!

He’s a vampire prince. She’s a human blood slave. They should be enemies… but uniting might be their only hope to prevent a supernatural war.
Annika never thought of herself as weak—until the day vampires murdered her parents and kidnapped her from our world to the hidden vampire kingdom of the Vale.

As a brand new blood slave, Annika must learn to survive her dangerous new circumstances… or face imminent death from the monstrous wolves prowling outside the Vale’s enchanted walls. But not all in the kingdom is as it appears, and when a handsome vampire disguised as a human steps into her life, Annika discovers that falling for the enemy is sometimes too tempting to resist.

Especially when becoming a vampire might be her only chance to gain the strength she needs to escape the Vale.

A Curse of Stone and Moonlight
by Ashley Maker

Sixteen-year-old Adele never asked for immortality.
Cursed to become a marble statue in a private art gallery, Adele is at the mercy of a wicked sorcerer’s quest for revenge and something even more sinister. With her freedom hanging in the balance, she must decide whether to succumb to Wilmont’s repulsive wishes or remain frozen as just another piece of art in a chilling collection.
The only thing keeping her from going mad is a promise to her mother and curiosity about the other statues in the gallery, especially the one taking the likeness of Wilmont’s tragically lost son. Adele cannot help but wonder if he is human like her, imprisoned beneath marble skin. She vows to find out the truth and escape before it’s too late and she’s trapped forever.

Monthly Recap {April 2017)

Hi, everyone! I'm so happy that Spring is finally here in full swing! It was another super month and I didn't get as much reading done as I had originally planned. I ended up reading three books last month. I've decided to not beat myself up about it and just go with the flow. After I get through a few ARCS I'm going to just pick up whatever I feel is right, it seems I get a LOT more read that way. 
What about you, are you a planner or feeler when it comes to reading? 
Well, here we go...
Books I read in April...
