Bibliophile: A person who collects or has a great love of book.
I can honestly say that I am 100% a bibliophile. I've always had a great love for books and a decent size library, but in the last 4 years, my library has grown so much that we actually have to build an addition onto our house to make room for more books. That right there is real dedication! So naturally, you can picture my excitement opening subscription boxes that I know will have books in them.
This month's BookCase.Club box was a little bit more of a surprise than usual. I didn't expect a book that I have actually heard of before, as previously the books included were ones I had not yet heard of. I was stoked to see Dangerous Creatures in this box! I have yet to read this series of books, but they are on my ever growing to-read list.

Ridley Duchannes is nobody's heroine. She's a Dark Caster, a Siren. She can make you do things. Anything. You can't trust her, or yourself when she's around. And she'll be the first to tell you to stay away--especially if you're going to do something as stupid as fall in love with her.
Lucky for Ridley, her wannabe rocker boyfriend, Wesley "Link" Lincoln, never listens to anyone. Link doesn't care if Rid's no good for him, and he takes her along when he leaves small-town Gatlin to follow his rock-star dream. He teams up with a ragtag group of Dark Casters, and when the band scores a gig at a hot Underground club, it looks like all of Link's dreams are about to come true.
But New York City is a dangerous place for both Casters and Mortals, and soon Ridley realizes that Link's bandmates are keeping secrets. With bad-boy club owner Lennox Gates on her heels, Rid is determined to find out the truth. What she discovers is worse than she could have imagined: Link has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay. With their lives on the line, what's a Siren to do?
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthors of the Beautiful Creatures novels, are back to cast another magical spell. Their signature blend of mystery, suspense, and romance, with a healthy dose of wit and danger, will pull fans in and leave them begging for more.
After narrowly escaping death in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, seventeen-year-old Avaline Hall is sent to Blythewood Academy, the elite girls’ boarding school in New York’s Hudson Valley that her mother attended years before. Ava hopes to solve the mystery of her mother’s death and its connection to the students who keep disappearing from Blythewood. But the school is not all that it appears . . . and neither is the handsome young man who saved Ava from the fire. What’s the meaning of the extraordinary powers Ava possesses? Who’s good and who’s evil? And who has the right to make that distinction?
Blythwood very much reminds me of Harry Potter, and both books have a lot of mystery, suspense, romance. A number of things that are pretty present in most YA novels. I do prefer real world YA to fantasy, but I have to say that these both have captured my attention.
