So, this week I’m finishing up on audio Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff. This is the second installment in The Nevernight Chronicle, the story of a young girl trained to be an assassin who is out to avenge her murdered family. I’m about 60% of my way through and enjoying it so far. The narration continues to be a joy. I’m a little worried about Mia’s actions in this book though and who she is choosing to trust. We’ll see how all that works out for her in the end.
I just started The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty. This is a tale of magic set in 18th century Cairo. I have to say I’ve really been looking forward to this one as the setting feels utterly refreshing. Since I’m only about 3% into the book so far I don’t have many opinions yet except that I’m really enjoying the writing. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish this ebook before it expires from my library, as I started it a little late into the checkout and only have a few days left on it. Clock’s ticking!
Next up I have a copy of Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente. I’m so excited for this book! It’s basically Eurovision in space and honestly it sounds wackadoodle and fun as hell. I read a few excerpts and really dig the tone of the book and the way it’s written so should be a fun read.
If I finish up my audiobook this week I’ll be checking out Circe by Madeline Miller. I’ve seen this one being mentioned here and there but a friend recommended the audiobook as the narration is great. This is a story based around the Greek pantheon and since that’s pretty much my jam this should connect well with me as a reader.
What is everyone else reading this week? Drop me a line in the comments and let me know! Have a great week!
