Is the spirit of the holiday season getting to you yet? Are you already thinking that this December could not possibly get any better after seeing the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer? Well, we are proving you wrong.
As the ardent bookworms we all are, there is no news more exciting than to know when we have at our disposal a new set of reads. Riveted, an online community, has ever so kindly bear you the gift of a free book for each of the twelve days of December in this festive season of giving.
Thus far, they have released nine tantalising titles (and with three more around the corner, so keep a lookout). If you don’t know where to start, allow us to give you a couple of recommendations:
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
by Michelle Hodkin
Now this one is a particular favourite of, say, everyone. If you have yet to read Hodkin‘s bestselling novel, then you are one of the lucky few who can still feel that magic reserved for readers who are experiencing everything for the first time. The mystery and secrets that blanket this story makes “Mara Dyer” not your usual YA novel. Hodkin’s talented writing will have you looking over your shoulder to make sure that no one is there and, at other times (a great part of the time), have you become a human Jell-O for the incomparable Noah Shaw.
by Hilary Duff
Elixir is certainly a tricky book to explain in just a short paragraph. You’ll find reviews on Goodreads that sing praises for Hillary Duff’s (yes, the Hillary Duff from the Lizzie McGuire) first novel and others that wished she would’ve just stuck to acting. So, the simplest solution would be to take a leap of faith and give it a read yourself!
P.S. If you’re a sucker for soulmate stories and love triangles, this has your name written all over it.
We haven’t read all the books that Riveted have on their list, so we’re just as excited as you are at this chance to discover unread fictions! Go on, head over to their page to meet your next best love:
