May New Book Releases I'm Dying to Read!

Hmm.... Not that many at all. What are you waiting for, ladies and gents?

Time Travel YA Audiobook Review: Future Shock by ELizabeth Briggs

Future Shock by Elizabeth Briggs (Future Shock #1)


audio copy courtesy of Audible Studios

Synopsis from Goodreads
What do you do when the future is too late, and the present is counting down to an inevitable moment?

Elena Martinez has street smarts, the ability for perfect recall, and a deadline: if she doesn’t find a job before she turns eighteen, she’ll be homeless. But then she gets an unexpected offer from Aether Corporation, the powerful Los Angeles tech giant. Along with four other recruits—Adam, Chris, Trent, and Zoe—Elena is being sent on a secret mission to bring back data from the future. All they have to do is get Aether the information they need, and the five of them will be set for life. It’s an offer Elena can’t refuse.

But something goes wrong when the time travelers arrive in the future. And they are forced to break the only rule they were given—not to look into their own fates. Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future—and a murder—from happening. But changing the timeline has deadly consequences too. Who can Elena trust as she fights to save her life?

The first book in an unforgettable series about rewriting your destiny in the city of dreams.

 Really good read/listen, ladies and gentlemen.

Elena has an eidetic memory, no job prospects because no one wants to hire young inexperienced Mexicans even to a sh*tty restaurant, and only two months before she is forced to the streets from her foster home.  And all she wants is a decent future. A university degree, a job as a social worker, that sort of thing... Then comes an offer she can't refuse - a ridiculous amount of money for one day of work in a confidential, super secret project in a powerful corporation.

Historical Romance Review: Her Every Wish by Courtney Milan

Her Every Wish by Courtney Milan (The Worth Saga #1.5)


Egalley thanks to Victory Editing

Synopsis from Goodreads
Crash has never let the circumstances of his birth, or his lack of a last name, bother him. His associations may be unsavory, but money, friends, and infamy open far more interesting doors than respect ever could. His sole regret? Once lovely, sweet Daisy Whitlaw learned the truth about how he made his fortune, she cut him off.

Daisy’s father is dead, her mother is in ill health, and her available funds have dwindled to a memory. When the local parish announces a Christmas charity bequest to help young people start a trade, it’s her last chance. So what if the grants are intended for men? If she’s good enough, she might bluff her way into a future.

When Crash offers to show her how to swagger with confidence, she knows he is up to no good. But with her life in the balance, she’s desperate enough to risk the one thing she hasn’t yet lost: her heart.

 Impossibly cute and totally adorable! I love how very unconventional Milan historical romances are. Here the main heroes are both working class, they are young, very hard-working, both rising above desperate circumstances in a unique way. 

The Postman Knock #153

Another great week for getting books but not for reading them. I have been really slow! The goats are doing well, the weather is finally turning to glorious sunshine which means LOTS OF WORK. We are getting super busy...
My blogaversary is coming up in May, but I doubt I'll be able to whip up anything exciting. Sorry for that in advance. How was your week?

READ/LISTENED TO:


HER EVERY WISH was lovely. And I really enjoyed FUTURE SHOCK. 1984 was a DNF for many reasons, but I'm glad I finally had a chance to listen to it.

FOR REVIEW/NETGALLEY:

Thanks to the publishers! Really looking forward to these!

This is it for me, peeps. Have a fab week!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
