What are you currently reading?
- A Reaper at the Gates (An Ember in the Ashes, #3) by Sabaa Tahir – physical book
- The Diviners (The Diviners, #1) by Libba Bray – audiobook
I didn’t have time to read as much Reaper as I wanted to last night. However, even though I’m only 50 pages into it, I’m already hooked. I think the biggest problem for me right now is that I hardly remember a thing about what happened in the previous book. Bits and pieces are coming back to me but I probably should look up a complete synopsis before I pick it up again tonight. This is why I need authors to write their complete series first and then release them every 6 months, so I don’t have to continue to struggle with a terrible memory! Apparently Michael J. Sullivan does that and basically he’s my hero for it.
This is actually a reread of The Diviners. I first read it back when it was first released and so now that there are multiple sequels out, I thought it was a good time for a reread and than move forward with the series. I’m sooooooo glad I decided to do the audiobook this time around, because y’all, it’s AMAZING. The narrator is so darn good with giving a distinctive voice for each character and just creating the perfect atmosphere. I highly recommend the audiobook version if you’re interested in reading this series! Also, I remember being obsessed when I first read this and this reread has brought all of those feelings back. I love, love, love this story!
What did you recently finish reading?
- Ahsoka (A Star Wars Novel) by E.K. Johnston – physical book, 4/5 stars
- Ace of Shades (The Shadow Game, #1) by Amanda Foody – physical book, 5/5 stars, review to come
I’m so glad I decided to get back to reading my Star Wars novels regularly again and started with Ahsoka. She’s my favorite character and I thought that Johnston did a great job bringing her to life in this book. I really enjoyed finding out what happened to her after The Clone Wars.
I don’t think I’ll ever stop gushing over Ace of Shades. This book was just so damn good, y’all! It was dark, brutal, and deliciously sinful. It was like if you set Six of Crows in Las Vegas and made them lose all inhibitions. I loved how twisted the story was and cannot wait to find out what will happen next. I need the sequel immediately!!!
What do you think you’ll read next?
- Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World, #1) by Rebecca Roanhorse – physical book
- Defy the Worlds (Constellation, #2) by Claudia Gray – physical book
I’m really excited to dive into Trail of Lightning. The synopsis sounds like so much fun and I haven’t read any urban fantasy in a long time. Plus, it’s an own voices novel following a Native American girl who hunts monsters. I mean, that’s just awesome!
Also, I’ve been waiting for Defy the Worlds ever since I read the first book and I can’t put off picking it up any longer. Abel, my sweetheart, I’m coming for you!
