FRIDAY READS w/ Current Reads


Am so a lets start everything and not finish anything. I don’t know why this is a habit and find it annoying. So yeah here are all my Friday read along with the other books am reading.

The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker 30%

Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a disgraced rabbi who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master, the husband who commissioned her, dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York in 1899.
Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop. Though he is no longer imprisoned, Ahmad is not entirely free – an unbreakable band of iron binds him to the physical world.

I have this as an Overdrive audio and e-book because there is a lot of characters along with their stories. This story is interesting in the fact that their all pretty much migrants who come to America for one reason or another. However with all the characters the two main characters Chava and Ahmad don’t get seen much.

Firelight by Kazu Kibuishi (Amulet-7)

Emily, Trellis, and Vigo visit Algos Island, where they can access and enter lost memories. They’re hoping to uncover the events of Trellis’s mysterious childhood — knowledge they can use against the Elf King. What they discover is a dark secret that changes everything. Meanwhile, the Voice of Emily’s Amulet is getting stronger, and threatens to overtake her completely.

Don’t know why I haven’t finished this yet since its a graphic novel. Also this is a Overdrive book so I need to get to it before it expires.

Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova (Brooklynbrujas-1) 8%

Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in a generation…and she hates magic. At her Deathday celebration, Alex performs a spell to rid herself of her power. But it backfires. Her whole family vanishes into thin air, leaving her alone with Nova, a brujo boy she can’t trust. A boy whose intentions are as dark as the strange markings on his skin.

The only way to get her family back is to travel with Nova to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland…

Am not that far in it and not much is happening as of yet.

George by Alex Gino 70%

This a less than 200 page story of George who is a girl trapped in a boy body. George wants to be seen as a girl so her and her best friend plan to show herself during a school play.

This is such a good book and can’t help but root for George. Plus George is 10 years old. That is really impressive that she knows who she is at a young age. Can’t wait to see how this ends and George to get her shine.

Fire in the Darkness by Stacy Marie Brown (darkness-2) 61%

This is four weeks after Light in the Darkness and it is Ember struggling with who to trust and how to get control of her powers. Ember goes through a lot and is angry a lot. She is learning some sercets and meeting more people who help her learn about herself.

 

So here you go and hope that I can get these done sooner than later. Anyone else have a multiply book at one time. Until next time and read on.

Audible Review: WONDER


author: R.J. Palacio

Format: audible (8h 6m)

Narrated: Diana Steele, Nick Podehl, and Kate Rudd

Rating: 5/5

Summary: August Pullman was born with a facial deformity that has prevent his from school. Until 5th grade and his parents sign him up to Beecher Prep. Now August has to convince his classmate that he is just an ordinary kid with an extraordinary face.

My Thoughts

This book was such realistic books that people should read to learn how to be nice to others. Also August (Auggie) though he has plenty going against him he has such a positive view point. He may not look like everyone else, but he’s nice, smart, and pretty much a little dork.

This is told not only in August POV but others around him. At first I didn’t know how to feel about that, but understand why it was important. It was to see the point of views of those around August.
It was also told by different voices (thanks to audible) which was a fun time to hear them with the other characters.
  LOVED:
Like I said the realistic elements in these book. Like how August reacted to another school. Or the way people react to him, along with the bullying. Sure August had his ups and downs which is expected however he grew up to the challenge which was wonderful.

                                          The friendships

(mostly Jack and Summer) are the best. Yes they started off as his not so sure of him to being his best friends. August grew a friend base slowly with the other students with his humor and charm. That ending shows how much August touched the other kids at Beecher Prep School. Well except one but that’s not to bad in the whole picture.

                                             The grownups

where written very well in how they treat August. His parents are like the most supportive and fun parents. The Pullmans have there inside jokes and such a close bound. Then we have the grownups that August school who didn’t treat August differently which was nice. Also they didn’t let bullying happen. There was also those who weren’t so nice however it was good to see the other side of it.
                            The Audible Version

I liked the different voices and thought they did really good for making the characters have different voices. I will say though August voice wasn’t my favorite. Other than that this was a really good book to listen to. Now though I want to own and read it in physical format.

The only thing that I didn’t like is that these is the only book. There are also novellas of some of the side characters. I still would love to continue with all these characters. Other than that am glad I’ve read this and excited to read the novellas to this story, but also what ever else the author writes.

Let me know if other has read this book and tell me your favorite part.

WEEKEND READ: Fire in the Darkness


 

*NOTE this was supposed to my Friday read however I wrote it up but not post it. So this is my weekend read because late than later.

Author: Stacey Marie Brown

Series: Darkness-2

Progess: 56%

This continues  4 weeks from the end of the first book. Now Ember has to move on and learn about herself and her powers. While dealing with the regret she feels, and trying to figure out who to trust.

I am still in love with the characters and the author writes her story. Ember is very angry in this book which is understandable if you’ve read the first book. I would love to finish this book so that when the DiversAThon, because I have a TBR planned that am happy for.

Anyone else doing DiversAThon this coming week? It’s a Monday to Monday and there is no challenges. Just reading as many Diverse books as you can and discuss with others on Twitter is you want. My TBR will be up Monday or Sunday haven’t decided yet.

So let me know in the comments if you are and if you have read this series yet or her other series the Collectors. Because that one is just as good.

🙂

Audible Review: Apprentice in Death 


Author: J.D.Robb

Narrator: Susan Ericksen

Series: in death-43

Rating: 5/5

Format: audible 13h 6m

Summary:

Nature versus nurture…

The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice-skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.

Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD but never one like this. A review of the security videos reveals that the victims were killed with a tactical laser rifle fired by a sniper, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the list of locations where the shooter could have set up seems endless, the number of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.

MY FANGIRL THOUUGHTS:

This book was like Innocent in Death for it being a minor. Differences it was a father/daughter team and sniper people who did them wrong. Though we find out who they are pretty quickly the hunt was fun. Behind the duo killings have been twisted so that Will could kill as she wants. You would think after over 40 books in these series that it would get boring but it’s not. I love how J.D Robb comes up with the plot, the police work behind it, and the relationships. I love all the characters that Eve has made along the way and how they pretty much became family. There is also so life changing things happening where Eve’s accepting change.

Also I love how in the end it went from all about death to life and happiness. Quick note about the audible it was done by the same lady whose done the rest of the series. Which I loved. A thing I didn’t like about the audible is the fact that I didn’t get the book until three hours after it released. Waiting to listen to this book was annoying.

I still love these books and since I finished this in one day. Now have to wait until 2017 for the next book.

REVIEW: City in Ember


Author: Stacey Marie Brown

Series: Collectors-1

Format: Audible/11hrs 3mins

this book is just what I needed. It had my hate/starting to like/to starting to feel something for the other kind a book. I loved Ryker and Zoe’s relationship. They had a strong dislike for each other but as the traveled together they grew to respect each other. Oh and the chemistry is so hot that I just wanted them to at least kiss once. However with the fact they are in love with other people while a monkey sprite interrupted them 99 percent of the time. They meet by accident which left to so disasterous results. Now Ryker is without his fae powers which have somehow gotten into Zoe. Plus all Seattle has no, and the gang groups have increased. The old secret government agency that Zoe worked for is after her, while Ryder is being tracked by a powerful fae that he went back on a deal with. and to top it all off they both hate each others species. Sounds like a good beginning of great adventure with loads of sarcasm.

Other than my love for Ryker and Zoe as characters I have to say Sprig the monkey sprite is my favorite little fae ever. He made me laugh out loud by the things he says because apparently sprites tell how they feel. He also loves Pan his stuff goat and anything honey flavored. He is a funny relief to a stressful situation.

The story itself was a story of a man hunt with different parties looking for Ryker and Zoe. While they try to keep ahead of everyone who is chasing them. there also  trying to figure out a mystery left by Zoe’s old partner.

The audible book was narrated by Amy Landon and she just helped me make this a quick listen which I highly liked. She tells the story well and bring the characters to life then I couldn’t stop.

I loved everything about this book and can’t wait to get into the rest of the series. Stacey Marie Brown has a great way of bring slow burn love, sarcastic characters with strong personality. Also taking the a journey where they have to watch there backs.

5/5- with a Highly recommend please check out her books
