My current reading list and what I think of the books so far. Some I would definitely recommend, some of them I DNF myself.
When I dive into the library, I usually pick out a small stack of books to take home. This helps I bring home a book that I can't really get into. I just put it on the shelf and start the next one in the stack. Here are the ones I brought home this week.
Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas
The story follows Caleana as she has just come from being the King's Champion (assassin) and is now in the land of the fae. She has to train to become one of them (because she is fae but has not practiced in a while) to gain a new clue in her quest to dethrone the evil king.
I read the previous two books and liked them, so I wanted to give this one a shot as well. So far, the multiple points of view are kind of throwing me off, but it is off to a good start.
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Two ships travel to a New Earth and one ship is not going to make it because the women on board are all infertile. This is about a 16 year-old girl who gets kidnapped to the infertile spaceship and her journey to protect her body, her friends, and return to her boyfriend on the remains of her home ship.
I have actually finished this book. In the beginning, I was not buying the romance and I don't know that I really did at any point in the story. However, I was enthralled as I read about what happened to the kidnapped girls. I quite enjoyed this story overall.
Tempest by Julie Cross
This is about a guy in college who can travel through time. His girlfriend gets taken and he has to save her.
To be perfectly honest, I tried to keep reading this book because the premise sounded so interesting. I eventually put it down and moved on to the next book in the stack. Sorry.
The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine
The story is about the next successor to the throne and the magic that protects the land. The old queen dies, and the magic is supposed to flow into the new queen. It doesn't. The successor flees and is taken on a journey to learn more about her kingdom and her unique situation.
There were definitely huge chunks of this story that I just skipped because it was taking too long to get through them and they did not seem important. Besides that, I actually really liked the book. The idea was cool, I eventually got used to the words like "valtia" and "saadella", and the ending was not quite what I expected. All in all, good read.
So, that's my reading list for the month of May. Most of the books I liked. One I chose to put down. The other I have yet to finish.
Thanks for reading!
