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.

Friday/Weekend Reads



The Answer and the Answer by Patrick Ness because I really want to finish this on or before Sunday. This is a 519 page book and am reading it in three different formats so I should be able to finish. She says with really high hopes. I really loved this book and I have 152 pages left and plenty of interest to continue. However life itself where I sleep during the day and work at night. Which doesn’t help with my reading, but I will get through it come Sunday. Its time for war and my favorite two people Viola and Todd are right in the middle of it on each side.

Ugh these two have been separated pretty much the whole book, and I need them to be able to talk and not just think what they do.

 

Weekend Reads


This weekend am going to be super lazy so why not get some reading done. So without further ado…

  
First up is Passenger by Alexandra Bracken am currently 81% done and should be finished with it (hopefully) later today. I have been slowly reading this since it came out and can’t wait to see how Bracken wraps it up.

 So on Saturday through Sunday I want to finish up Winter by Marissa Meyer which am currently 22% pages in.  I got to part two of the book when Winter first came out and put it down. Now its time to continue it before Stars Above comes out.

I’ll be doing a duel reading and listening act with the both of these so I can do other lazy things while enjoying the stories. Any one else binge reading these weekend?

FRIDAY READ: Crash Trilogy by Nicole Williams


Am currently in a contemporary kick apparently and Crash, Clash, and Crush is a trilogy that’s been on my shelf forever. So I decided its time to see what these books are about and if they will be staying on my shelf.  So that’s what I’ll be doing this weekend when am not working.

  
If you don’t know about this trilogy its about a good girl named Lucy Larson meets bad boy Jude Ryder. Two teenagers named after Beetle song trying to get through high school, family, and Jude’s mood swings.

  Series: The Madman’s Daughter #2

Genre: Historical fiction

Publisher: Balzer + Bray

I need to finish this today or early tomorrow for its due back to the library Saturday. Am currently on page 160 (37%), and waiting for Montogery to show himself. I know from the ending of the last book there will be tension, and I honestly can’t wait.

Friday Read


Am totally loving the In Death series right now and have made my way to the third book Immortal in Death. This one is a little more personal to Eve for the fact it involves her best friend. So trying to stay nutrella and trying to clear her friends innocent. While planning her wedding. 😊

Am half way done and I’ll most likely finish tonight if I get a lot of it done before work. Happy Friday everyone. 


Friday reads: Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers


Summary:
When Sybella arrived at the doorstep of St Mortain half mad with grief and despair the convent were only too happy to offer her refuge – but at a price. The sisters of this convent serve Death, and with Sybella naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, she could become one of their most dangerous weapons.

But her assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to the life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. But when Sybella discovers an unexpected ally she discovers that a daughter of Death may find something other than vengeance to live for…

My thoughts so far:
I’ve only gotten 80 pages so far and enjoying it so far. Sybella is so different from Ismae in pretty much every way. Enjoying and wait to see what happens next especially since someone I thought who died in the last books is actual alive. Yay.

Hope everyone has a fun weekend and happy reading to all. 🙂
