It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? 6/21/21

Good Morning!

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the warmer weather.

This week I’m going to try to get back into my normal reading habits. Since I don’t like the hot weather, I stay inside more.

This week I’m going to read a book by a classic author, an owl crate exclusive book, and an ebook from Netgalley.

What are you reading this week?

Mark of the Wicked- Georgia Bowers

54017816A young witch tries to unravel the mystery of who is framing her for dark magic in Georgia Bowers’ creepy YA debut fantasy, Mark of the Wicked.

Magic always leaves its mark.

All her life, Matilda has been told one thing about her magic: You use only when necessary. But Matilda isn’t interested in being a good witch. She wants revenge and popularity, and to live her life free of consequences, free of the scars that dark magic leaves on her face as a reminder of her misdeeds.

When a spell goes awry and the new boy at school catches her in the act, Matilda thinks her secret might be out. But far from being afraid, Oliver already knows about her magic – and he wants to learn more. As Oliver and Matilda grow closer, bizarre things begin to happen: Animals show up with their throats slashed and odd markings carved into their bodies, a young girl dies mysteriously, and everyone blames Matilda. But she isn’t responsible — at least, not that she can remember. As her magic begins to spin out of control, Matilda must decide for herself what makes a good witch, and discover the truth…before anyone else turns up dead.

  1. OOh nice! I still need to read Where Dreams Descend as well! I had an ARC of it last year, but I couldn’t get into it at the time, so I set it aside…but then I bought the Owl Crate version when I saw that gorgeous cover! Lol! Hope you enjoy your reads for the week!

    1. The cover is what sold me on that book as well. I knew that I had to have it. I’ve heard great things about it, so I hope it’s a good one.

      You know my love of JLA and I haven’t read FBTA yet. I hope you love it!
