Friday Reads: April 17

Today I’m in the process of reading two books! One of them is a middle grade fantasy, and the other is a Romantic Suspense tale.

Silent Shadows by Natalie Walters

This is the third book in the Harbored Secrets series, set in Georgia. I received this book through the Revell Reads Blogger Program. So far I read the first 50 pages, and it’s holding my attention!

Story Magic by Laurel Gale

I received this book through NetGalley and North Star Press. It’s a middle grade fantasy, with a young girl out on a journey to find her brother.

What books are you reading this weekend? Let me know in the comments!

Friday Reads: April 10

I’m about halfway through Lobizona by Romina Garber. I’m just swept away by the reality of the Miami, Florida setting and the Argentinian folklore woven into the story. I’m sure it’s going to be quite a ride once things pick up!

I did discover one thing that I’m not too thrilled about…nothing story related, but the face that the publication date is pushed back to August. I should have expected it, considering the pandemic we’re all experiencing has caused delays and postponements all around. I was surprised about the news, but I can wait. It will just build up the excitement!

Reading Blog: April 9

Today I began reading ‘Lobizona’ by Romina Garber. It’s a YA novel handling the relevant issues of immigration and family separation intensely. Thank you to NetGalley and Wednesday Books for providing me a digital copy!

I’m about 30% through, and it’s revealed quite a lot about Manu and her existence. She’s lost so much and gained so much knowledge within a 24 hour span. I’m curious to see what happens next as the book progresses!

WWW Wednesday: February 12

WWW Wednesday was originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm, and now maintained by Taking on a World of Words.

There are three prompts for WWW Wednesday:
–What are you currently reading?
–What did you finish recently reading?
–What do you think you’ll read next?

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
This is my local library’s book club selection for February. I’m finding the relationship between Pearl and Lexie pretty intriguing!

The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo
I purchased the audiobook for The Light We Lost a few months back. I was drawn to the NYC backdrop, and the fact that major life events seem to shape Lucy and Gabe’s relationship.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
This book was simply stunning, from the animated descriptions of the circus to the way the characters’ emotions jumped off the page. I truly enjoyed it!

Honeybees and Frenemies by Kristi Wientge
I can’t wait to read this story about a friendship facing challenges among a competition!

Reading Blog: ‘We Hunt the Flame’ by Hafsah Faizal

I’m at Chapter 52 at ‘We Hunt the Flame’. I don’t know why this book is taking me so long to read through, because I really enjoy it! It involves a young woman names Zafira, masquerading as a man in order to restore peace. She goes on a quest to obtain an artifact which will restore magic to the world of Arwiya. The story is told in two perspectives: Zafira and Nasir, known as the Prince of Death, yet he wants no part of this title.

Both Nasir and Zafira are handling the task with avenging the deaths of someone dear to their lives. Their approach to relationships are cold and aloof, yet their hearts long for a deeper connection to life. Nasir wishes to be free from the moniker of an assassin, while Zafira longs to be free from hiding her femininity in order to be taken seriously. As I get more involved in the story, I’m hoping to see a breakthrough in their journeys.
