‘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.
Last week has been bit disturbed both in reading and blog and life as well. My baby shower wound up nicely. But when all relatives are gathered at one place it’s bound cause turbulence in peaceful water. I really don’t like to be social. Some people are not doing anything to keep me happy, they are expecting from me to please them in name of social custom and so called tradition!! Anyway I hope I can have peaceful time till due date.
Last week I finished~
The Adventures of Isabelle Necessary by Martii Maclean. Review will be up next month during the blog tour for this book.
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Anne Frank’s extraordinary diary, written in the Amsterdam attic where she and her family hid from the Nazis for two years, has become a world classic and a timeless testament to the human spirit. Now, in a new edition enriched by many passages originally withheld by her father, we meet an Anne more real, more human, and more vital than ever. Here she is first and foremost a teenage girl—stubbornly honest, touchingly vulnerable, in love with life. She imparts her deeply secret world of soul-searching and hungering for affection, rebellious clashes with her mother, romance and newly discovered sexuality, and wry, candid observations of her companions. Facing hunger, fear of discovery and death, and the petty frustrations of such confined quarters, Anne writes with adult wisdom and views beyond her years. Her story is that of every teenager, lived out in conditions few teenagers have ever known.
I started this last week and will finish it by tomorrow.
Next I’ll read~
Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha #1) by Tomi Adeyemi
Now we rise.
Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.
This book was so popular ever since its release that I just grabbed it during Amazon sale. It’s been long time I read new release fantasy book so I’m really excited to start it ASAP.
