Hello, book lovers! 💕
I feel like I’m not that consistent with these types of posts; I tend to do them once a month (if that). But I enjoy doing them. With these types of posts, I’m able to determine if the book I discuss is one that I want to keep on my TBR.
Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it! I originally saw this post on A Little Haze Book Blog, who is amazing and you should definitely check their blog out.
In choosing a book from my Goodreads TBR, I’m going to use a random number generator to pick the book I’m going to talk about.
The book that I ended up choosing was All the Tides of Fate by Adalyn Grace, which is the sequel to All the Stars and Teeth that comes out in the beginning of 2021. I read the first book in April of this year, and I really enjoyed it. I actually have a book review up for the first book if you want to know more of my thoughts. But I almost forgot that this book will be coming out relatively soon, and I definitely plan on picking it up when it is published in February.
I don’t want to go into too much detail of All the Tides of Fate since it is a sequel, so I’ll discuss the first book in case you’re interested in reading it.
Here’s the summary of All the Stars and Teeth from Goodreads:
Set in a kingdom where danger lurks beneath the sea, mermaids seek vengeance with song, and magic is a choice.
She will reign.
As princess of the island kingdom Visidia, Amora Montara has spent her entire life training to be High Animancer — the master of souls. The rest of the realm can choose their magic, but for Amora, it’s never been a choice. To secure her place as heir to the throne, she must prove her mastery of the monarchy’s dangerous soul magic.
When her demonstration goes awry, Amora is forced to flee. She strikes a deal with Bastian, a mysterious pirate: he’ll help her prove she’s fit to rule, if she’ll help him reclaim his stolen magic.
But sailing the kingdom holds more wonder — and more peril — than Amora anticipated. A destructive new magic is on the rise, and if Amora is to conquer it, she’ll need to face legendary monsters, cross paths with vengeful mermaids, and deal with a stow-away she never expected… or risk the fate of Visidia and lose the crown forever.
I am the right choice. The only choice. And I will protect my kingdom.
What drew me in is the fact that the book has pirates and mermaids. That’s all I really needed to know before going into the book. And I was immersed pretty quickly when I started reading. Considering it’s a fantasy, that’s a good thing because it usually takes me awhile to get into a story that has a lot of world-building and setup. But the author did a really good job at painting a vivid image of what was going on.
I’m really excited to find out what happens in the next book, and honestly, February 2021 can’t come fast enough because I want to read it now. But I’ve got to be patient, even if I don’t want to.
So there you have it. I know this was a pretty short blog post, but I don’t want to spoil anything for the next book if you haven’t read the first one. And mermaids and pirates should be enough for anyone to want to go pick this book duology up.
Have you read this book? Do you plan on reading it soon before the sequel comes out? I’d love to discuss it in the comments below!
