The Registry by Shannon Stoker



Welcome to a safe and secure new world, where beauty is bought and sold, and freedom is the ultimate crime

The Registry saved the country from collapse, but stability has come at a price. In this patriotic new America, girls are raised to be brides, sold at auction to the highest bidder. Boys are raised to be soldiers, trained to fight and never question orders.

Nearly eighteen, beautiful Mia Morrissey excitedly awaits the beginning of her auction year. But a warning from her married older sister raises dangerous questions. Now, instead of going up on the block, Mia is going to escape to Mexico—and the promise of freedom.

All Mia wants is to control her own destiny—a brave and daring choice that will transform her into an enemy of the state, pursued by powerful government agents, ruthless bounty hunters, and a cunning man determined to own her . . .

3 books you need to add to your reading list


1) Destined by Jessie Harrell

You cant scape what’s destined, When a painter becomes famous by painting Psyche’s face, she becomes the most beautiful girl in Greece. Men from everywhere would come to admire her beauty. You would think Psyche’s life would be full of greatness and satisfactions, but everything changes when her prophesy goes wrong and instead of marring a God she ends up trapped; trying to fight her feelings for a creature that even Gods fear.

Destined is a fresh and heart aching romantic retelling of cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist Jessie Harrell


2) Between the Line by Jody Picoult and Samantha Van leer

Delilah has always loved reading books more than talking to people. One day she finds a fairytale that captures her completely, but what will happen when Delilah realizes that the characters in this book are special?

They are alive, repeating and acting the story every time somebody opens the book, every character is happy with this  but the main character Prince Oliver wants out , will she help the boy of her dreams come out of a world with happy endings?



3) Rory by Cye Cho

Far beyond heaven, earth and hell is a city known as Palladino, a place ruled by ghosts and filled with demons, magic, and all sorts of darkly beautiful things. A city where no one can ever escape.
Eighteen-year-old Rory is a cake decorator who makes stunning confections. But no amount of frosting or miracles can save her when a demon kidnaps her—and carries her to Palladino. Here, Rory ends up in a deadly charm school where young women are forced to become companions for the Ghost Lords. And for her to survive, Rory must become everything that she isn’t: graceful, elegant... and perfect.
But nothing is what it seems in Palladino. Not the magic. Not the ghosts. And definitely not Martin Marius, the bizarre Ghost Lord-slash-inventor who is drawn to Rory. For amid a thousand machines and a hundred cats, Martin holds a secret that could change everything. A secret that could either free Rory... or destroy her.

The lost Continent by Charles John C.



A classic "lost race" story, with all of the required elements: a seductive empress, a straight-arrow hero, battles, escapes, sorcery, and earth-shattering cataclysms! Eminently readable and very entertaining, without any profundity to distract a fan of Haggard, Aubrey, or Janvier-style fantasy literature.
