Whatcha Readin’ Now?
Since I just finished a book last night, I’m not sure where to go. I’m going back and forth between The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons and Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. On the one hand, I’ve already listened to about 3 hours of The Bronze Horseman and I know I love it. It’s romance and Russia and angst and tension and it’s just so freaking good! But on the other hand, I want to get a sampling of Paige’s writing since I’m interested in her upcoming book, Stealing Snow. We’ll see where it goes, I guess…
Whatcha Been Readin’?
Since last week, I finished both The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins and Blood Passage by Heather Demetrios! So I’d say getting out of my slump had been good going so far! Both of the books were more fluff reads than “serious fantasy,” but they did the trick! I can’t say which one I liked better, they were both pretty solid reads. The Great Hunt is the first in a series about a fantasy land ravaged by a terrible beast and Blood Passage is about genies. So they’re pretty incomparable, lol!
Whatcha Gonna Read Next?
As so often happens, I honestly can’t say. You know me–I like to be spontaneous when it comes to my TBR. You know, the whole “young, wild, and free” concept, but applied to reading.
Books On My Radar
Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent the majority of her life within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she’s not crazy and doesn’t belong there. When she meets a mysterious, handsome new orderly and dreams about a strange twisted tree she realizes she must escape and figure out who she really is.
Using her trusting friend Bale as a distraction, Snow breaks free and races into the nearby woods. Suddenly, everything isn’t what it seems, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and she finds herself in icy Algid–her true home–with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai, none of whom she’s sure she can trust. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change the fate of everything…including Snow’s return to the world she once knew.
This breathtaking first volume begins the story of how Snow becomes a villain, a queen, and ultimately a hero.
