Happy Wednesday, friends!
Hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words, this is one of my favourite weekly blog hops! I love being part of the a great community of readers.
All you have to do is answer three questions!
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
It’s been a busy week, what with finally getting Eléonore up for pre-order and my nightly opportunities for quiet have slimmed, but I still managed to find some time to read 🙂
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (Harry Potter #6) by JK Rowling
It is the middle of the summer, but there is an unseasonal mist pressing against the windowpanes. Harry Potter is waiting nervously in his bedroom at the Dursleys’ house in Privet Drive for a visit from Professor Dumbledore himself. One of the last times he saw the Headmaster was in a fierce one-to-one duel with Lord Voldemort, and Harry can’t quite believe that Professor Dumbledore will actually appear at the Dursleys’ of all places. Why is the Professor coming to visit him now? What is it that cannot wait until Harry returns to Hogwarts in a few weeks’ time? Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts has already got off to an unusual start, as the worlds of Muggle and magic start to intertwine…
This is definitely one of my favourite books in the series and I am glad to be reading it now as I publish my own book because JK Rowling was a huge inspiration for me when I was younger. I’m hoping to be done this one tonight and then round off the series reread in December with Deathly Hallows. 🙂
Fay Storms (The Storms Trilogy #1) by A.A. Frascati
Thief by trade. Half-breed by blood. Fifer is part-Fay and all pluck.
When her partner goes missing and she is abducted by demanding clients, Fifer finds herself trapped in a plot she wants no part of. By fulfilling her contract with the Aestus, the brotherhood of powerful and secretive warriors, she will discover that she’s not what she thinks.
The Aestus need her—even though Arkadius, Master in training, can’t see it. In order to stop the Aestus clans from warring among themselves, Arkadius must rely on Fifer to steal a powerful magical artifact. But how can a woman save the mighty Aestus? When he discovers the answer, the fate of the Empire will rest on the edge of his sword.
A decent debut to be sure. Definitely a lot of potential for the series. There were some developments near the end that left me wanting, but for the most part, I enjoyed the story and the characters. A full review will be up soon. I’ve fallen terribly behind in those so expect a whirlwind in December 😜
The Girl from the Sea by Shalini Boland
For fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train
A chilling suspense story of wounded hearts and dark secrets.
Washed up on the beach, she can’t remember who she is. She can’t even remember her name. Turns out, she has a perfect life – friends and family eager to fill in the blanks.
But why are they lying to her? What don’t they want her to remember?
When you don’t even know who you are, how do you know who to trust?
One of my NetGalley reads. I’ve had it on my shelf for a while but I’ve fallen behind. Time for catching up!
Infernal Alliance (Infernal Hunt #4) by Holly Evans
Blurb: (heavily edited to avoid spoilers)
A rebellion is brewing, threatening to tear down all that the hunters have worked for.
I fell in love with this series by Holly. She’s an amazing writer and a huge inspiration behind my debut novella. I’m excited to read it, but also nervous. I don’t want this series to end.
But she has a new series in the work, so there’s that to look forward to 🙂
Also, isn’t this cover gorgeous 😍
