The Trial (PULSE #1) by R.A. Crawford - Goodreads Ratings: 12

  1. Pulse- oh my. That's quite the cover! Down With The shine is on my list to read, and Future Shock looks like it could be a good dystopian/ time travel story?

  2. Interesting list!! I actually have a copy of The 13th Continuum that I haven't read yet, so it's nice to see it on your list today! I think I also got an eARC of Down With the Shine that I haven't read yet. Ugh, I need to get it in gear hahah. I've never heard of Frost before, but the cover is so cool, I looked up the description and it seems really interesting. Nice choices!

    My TTT!

  3. All these books have gorgeous covers! I sadly haven't heard of any of these. Ink & Ashes and 13 Continuum have peaked my interest!

  6. Ink and Ashes looks interesting and I love the cover! That's always the first thing that attracts me to a book and what causes me to take a closer look. I will definitely be looking Ink and Ashes up today! Happy reading!

  10. I love your list, I'll be adding some of them to my TBR. I went with books that I didn't really enjoy this past year, because I kind of already shared the underrated books/Books that I loved from the past year.

  14. Ooh these are definitely underrated -- I haven't heard of any of them! :D The cover for Revenge and the Wild looks pretty, and I would probably pick that up based on that alone, hah.

      I don't blame you there. :)

  15. I'm definitely intrigued by Future Shock, that's one I really want to pick up this year! My favourite hidden gem I read last year was Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. It's a really unique take on vampires set in Mexico City!

  16. Down with the Shine was popping up on a lot of WoW's last year and it always sounded interesting, maybe I should keep it in mind. And the cover to Frost intrigues me. Great list.

  19. Oh I've hardly heard of any of these! *gasps* Except I really want to read Frost and my library just bought it so I'm excited for that! And Revenge of the Wild has the best cover and font I've ever seen.😍
