GoodReads Monday

This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.

When I was looking around on Goodreads today for a book to use for this post, I noticed that a lot of the fall 2024 books have finally had covers added. New covers always gives me goosebumps, as it means we are one step closer to getting those books in our hands so we can admire those lovely covers for real. But first I wanted to finish up some of the spring/summer books I have on my list.

This week’s pick is the second book in a series that is a time travel book of sorts. I enjoyed the first book in the series, Only a Monster, last year and I am really looking forward to reading the next book in this trilogy.

Never a Hero by Vanessa Len

Publication Date: June 8, 2023

Summary from Goodreads:

Despite all of the odds, Joan achieved the impossible. She reset the timeline, saved her family – and destroyed the hero, Nick.

But her success has come at a terrible cost.

She alone remembers what happened. Now, Aaron, her hard-won friend – and maybe more – is an enemy, trying to kill her. And Nick, the boy she loved, is a stranger who doesn’t even know her name. Only Joan remembers that there is a ruthless and dangerous enemy still out there.

When a deadly attack forces Joan back into the monster world as a fugitive, she finds herself on the run with Nick – as Aaron closes in.

As the danger rises – and Nick gets perilously closer to discovering the truth of what Joan did to him – Joan discovers a secret of her own. One that threatens everyone she loves.

Torn between love and family and monstrous choices, Joan must find a way to re-gather her old allies to face down the deadliest of enemies, and to save the timeline itself.

Vanessa Len’s stunning Only a Monster trilogy continues with this second instalment, a thrilling journey where a secret past threatens to unravel everyone’s future.

I really like that cover. It is a nice reflection of the first book’s cover, I like it when that works out. I have a few more summer books planned for the next couple of weeks and then I will start in on the fall books that I am looking forward to. Until next time…

Happy Reading!
