‘It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?’ is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Hello Book Lovers! My week in reading was much better after long time. I’m getting back to schedules and normalcy. I hope you all had great week too. So,,,
Last week I read and reviewed-
Watch Me by Jody Gehrman (I finished reading this previous week but posted review this week)
I also finished ‘Louder Than a Whisper: Clearer Than a Bell‘ by Renée Paule. I’m writing review currently and will post it this week.
Joshua N’Gon:Last Prince of Alkebulahn by Anthony Hewitt
Joshua N’Gon is a Fourteen year old foster child from Africa. He has grown up in a loving home in north London and for all intents and purposes he was an ordinary teenager. The reality though could not be further from the truth. Joshua is a mystery wrapped up in an enigma and he is beginning to understand he has a destiny that is far beyond what he could ever have imagined.
On his tenth birthday he receives a mysterious package from his birth parents. He is given articles of technology that even his young mind realized were so far beyond what he knew and understood that they were almost magical. Joshua straps on a tribal hierloom of obvious alien origin – a miraculous multi-tool he calls his RCT– Real Cool Tool that bonds with his arm and is irremovable. And so begin his physical changes too, the headaches, the flashes of genius, the visions and the amnesia.
With his friends Brick and Mina they slowly help him to unravel the mystery of who he is. In the meantime dark corporate forces are gathering in the horizon as Joshua’s talents and his interest in finding his family has piqued the curiosity of powerful people. Soon as his life and the life of those he loves are threatened he must come to grips with his gifts and the miraculous alien technology that founded his people.
I’ve tour date this week for this book on Friday, so hopefully I will finish it in time.
Next This week-
Rani Padmavati: The Burning Queen by Anuja Chandramouli
Padmavati is the most beautiful queen Chittor has ever had. Everyone who sees her is enthralled by her grace and goodness. When the greedy gaze of the Sultan ofDelhi, Alauddin Khalji, falls upon Chittor and its queen, Padmavati’s flawless beauty turns against her, because it inspires both love and hate in equal measure.
Beset by the threat of an invasion and scheming political rivals who are envious of her immense popularity, Rani Padmavati must rise to the demands of war and fight for everything she believes in. This is the story of a remarkable woman who lived gently, loved passionately and embraced her destiny with unmatched courage.
Oh I’m so excited to read this book. Bollywood movie is also coming on this historical character this month (Movie is not based on this book, but based on history) and there is so much controversies going on regarding movie. I better read this before I go to watch movie.
