I figured I’d talk about the book that I’m in the middle of reading right now in today’s post. Because it’s one that I wasn’t actually planning on reading this month. Honestly, I’m not sure what possessed me to pick it up considering it’s not something that I typically gravitate towards, but I did.
After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-year-old Bree Matthews wants nothing to do with her family memories or childhood home. A residential program for bright high schoolers at UNC–Chapel Hill seems like the perfect escape—until Bree witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus.
A flying demon feeding on human energies.
A secret society of so called “Legendborn” students that hunt the creatures down.
And a mysterious teenage mage who calls himself a “Merlin” and who attempts—and fails—to wipe Bree’s memory of everything she saw.
The mage’s failure unlocks Bree’s own unique magic and a buried memory with a hidden connection: the night her mother died, another Merlin was at the hospital. Now that Bree knows there’s more to her mother’s death than what’s on the police report, she’ll do whatever it takes to find out the truth, even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn as one of their initiates.
She recruits Nick, a self-exiled Legendborn with his own grudge against the group, and their reluctant partnership pulls them deeper into the society’s secrets—and closer to each other. But when the Legendborn reveal themselves as the descendants of King Arthur’s knights and explain that a magical war is coming, Bree has to decide how far she’ll go for the truth and whether she should use her magic to take the society down—or join the fight.
It’s been a while since I’ve done an Author Appreciation where I dedicate a post to gushing about a certain author who makes me happy. Not only that, but so far the some of the ones that I’ve featured deal with some tough topics in their books (Becky Albertalli and Elizabeth Acevedo).
And also considering Angie Thomas’s new book, Concrete Rose, just came out last week, I felt like it was a good time to gush about her as an author. And my love for her books.
I didn’t know what I wanted to talk about in today’s post. I actually struggled with it for quite a while before I decided to discuss ebooks considering I received a new Kindle for Christmas and have been pretty much obsessed with reading on it.
So that’s what I’m going to talk about. Rekindling (no pun intended) my love of ebooks.
I don’t know what happened to this post, but I’m writing it again because for some reason, everything got deleted. I’ve been having technical difficulties, so if I’m sorry if this is a scrambled mess of a post. I just want to have this as a reference for the end of the year.
It’s already the end of January, and I feel like this year is going to be similar to last year where the months fly by. I would have had this up earlier in the month, but it’s been a stressful few weeks. And it doesn’t seem to want to get any easier.
But I figured I’d talk about my 2021 reading goals briefly (since I’ve already done this, and I’m just summarizing what I had written previously).
So without anymore further ado, let’s get onto my reading goals for this year!
It’s been a while since I did one of these posts, but I figured it’d be fun to do.
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.
I use a random number generator to pick the book from my Goodreads TBR. This way, I have no idea what book I’m going to end up talking about.
So without further ado, let’s get onto the book I’m going to talk about today!
When Graham Barnett named his diner The Tourist Trap, he meant it as a joke. Now he’s stuck slinging reindeer dogs to an endless parade of resort visitors who couldn’t interest him less. Not even the sweet, enthusiastic tourist in the corner who blushes every time he looks her way…
Two weeks in Alaska isn’t just the top item on Zoey Caldwell’s bucket list. It’s the whole bucket. One look at the mountain town of Moose Springs and she’s smitten. But when an act of kindness brings Zoey into Graham’s world, she may just find there’s more to the grumpy local than meets the eye…and more to love in Moose Springs than just the Alaskan wilderness.
So I wanted to make a list of the books that I really want to get to this year. These aren’t necessarily books that are released this year (I have a post on those books that I wrote a few weeks ago) but just books that I really need to get to. Whether they’re the next books in a series or ones that I’ve seen around but haven’t gotten to.
Basically this is a master list of books that I want to read throughout this year. They’re my top priority books. Though I can’t say that I’ll end up sticking to this list considering how bad I am with sticking to TBRs.
Also, I want to note that these aren’t the only books that I plan on reading this year. Not only that, but this list is subject to change if (and when) I decide to pick one of these books up. As I’ve mentioned many times, I’m a mood reader, so if I’m not in the mood to read something at a certain time, I’m not going to read it.
But without any further ado, let’s get onto the list of books I want to read in 2021!
Being that it’s already a few days into January already, I figured it would be a good time to discuss the books that I plan on reading this month. I don’t have that many books on this list, mainly because I don’t see myself getting a lot of reading done.
It’s been a stressful few days in my life, and I haven’t really been in the mood to pick anything up. But here’s to hoping that the rest of the month turns out better. And that I’m able to get at least a few of these books read.
So without further ado, let’s get onto the books that I want to try to read this month!
