Happy Sunday bookworms!
I’m super excited to share my first post since doing a redesign on my blog…
*Bookish Weekly Wrap-Up is a weekly post where I feature what books I’ve been reading, which books are on my upcoming TBR, what posts were published on the blog for the past week, and any bookish news I’ve came across.
I was able to finish up my 4 week intro class early, so I found myself with an entire week off before my other 2 classes begin this upcoming week.
What did I do with all my extra free time? I redesigned my blog!
I had been wanting to do a redesign for a while now. My old blog design just didn’t feel like ME anymore. After a few hours of playing around, I think I am finally happy with the overall design and my new graphics! You know, just in time to start my classes and not have any time to blog LOL
Recently Finished Reading:
» Home Before Dark by Riley Sager
This book. If you are looking for a book to freak you the f*** out, here it is! I liked this one even more than Lock Every Door.
» Escape from Lucien (Amulet #6) by Kazu Kibuishi
I’ve been really enjoying this graphic novel series. The illustrations are absolutely breathtaking!
» A Sky Beyond the Storm (An Ember in the Ashes #4) by Sabaa Tahir
» Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
What Am I Reading Next?:
» Legendborn (Lengendborn #1) by Tracy Deonn
After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-year-old Bree Matthews wants nothing to do with her family memories or childhood home. A residential program for bright high schoolers at UNC–Chapel Hill seems like the perfect escape—until Bree witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus.
A flying demon feeding on human energies.
A secret society of so called “Legendborn” students that hunt the creatures down.
And a mysterious teenage mage who calls himself a “Merlin” and who attempts—and fails—to wipe Bree’s memory of everything she saw.
The mage’s failure unlocks Bree’s own unique magic and a buried memory with a hidden connection: the night her mother died, another Merlin was at the hospital. Now that Bree knows there’s more to her mother’s death than what’s on the police report, she’ll do whatever it takes to find out the truth, even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn as one of their initiates.
She recruits Nick, a self-exiled Legendborn with his own grudge against the group, and their reluctant partnership pulls them deeper into the society’s secrets—and closer to each other. But when the Legendborn reveal themselves as the descendants of King Arthur’s knights and explain that a magical war is coming, Bree has to decide how far she’ll go for the truth and whether she should use her magic to take the society down—or join the fight.
