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.
