The first of the three is a book called The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski.
One day she goes into the markets and finds herself bidding for a Herran slave, and winning. And just so you know, he's the love interest. But he's not quite who he says he is. He's pretty deceptive too.
It's a story set in a world of court policies and military plans. It's a story of power.
The second book I read is called The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel
Ivy is being forced to marry the son of the president, Bishop. All her life her sister and her have been home-schooled by their father, turned against the system of their current society. All her life Ivy has felt second best to her sister. And for two years she's been dreading and preparing for this moment. Her mission is to kill Bishop.
But maybe things aren't as they seem. Either he's a really good actor or Bishop's not as bad as she thought he'd be. Maybe her father isn't completely right. And maybe the president isn't completely bad. Maybe there is no wrong or right. But then, what's right?
This one's a story of ethics and morals. What's the right thing to do?
The third book I read is called A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray.
Marguerite's parents have just made a breakthrough. They've created a device that can jump between dimensions (but all the stuff explained about that is too complicated to tell you here). But before they're even able to test it out, Marguerite's dad is murdered and the prototype is stolen, the murderer and thief being Paul.
Soon Marguerite and Theo are on a quest after Paul, hopping from dimension to dimension. But what happens when Marguerite meets a different version of Paul? What happens when what happens is not quite what it seems?
It's just one confusing jumbled up story, containing everything, that you will greatly enjoy.
And you know what? I could've made it four in a row if only I'd remembered to bring this book.
Oh well. But guess what else these three books have in common? They all have a sequel that hasn't come out yet. Ugh. I hate waiting for anticipated books.
