*First Line Friday- 1/3/20* Nameless Queen- Rebecca McLaughlin

28173303One girl must make a name for herself–or die trying –in this royal fantasy where an unknown peasant becomes the ultimate ruler. But how long can she keep the crown if everyone wants her dead? Perfect for fans of Furyborn, Red Queen, and Everless.

Everyone expected the king’s daughter would inherit the throne. No one expected me.

It shouldn’t even be possible. I’m Nameless, a class of citizens so disrespected, we don’t even get names. Heck, dozens of us have been going missing for months and no one seems to care.

But there’s no denying the tattoo emblazoned on my arm. I am queen. In a palace where the corridors are more dangerous the streets, though, how could I possibly rule? And what will become of the Nameless if I don’t?

Wednesday Readings – WWW

Hi, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I enjoyed spending the time with my family and reading in front of the fire place…when I had time to myself. I have family still in town so I won’t be posting much this week, or reading for that matter. But I did have enough time to squeeze in the three WWW’s: What I am currently reading, what I recently finished, and what I plan on reading next. I changed the name so our awesome readers do not get confused with the other Waiting on Wednesday posts created by Jill at Breaking the Spine.


What am I currently reading?

Cruel Prince

This book is so. Freaking. Good. I’m a little over half way through (I’d hoped to be done reading The Cruel Prince by now but not everything goes as planned), and I am just loving the characters and faerie aspect. Holly Black sure knows how to weave a wonderful tale!

Charm

I recently started By a Charm and a Curse. I’m not too far into the story but I know I will be by the end of today. This book pulls you into a unique carnival setting, and I can’t wait to see what happens to the characters.


What book did I recently finish?

Everless

Everless comes out next month, and this is a must-read. If this book is not on your TBR list, it needs to be! Everless was such an excellent read, with a unique build-up and setting. Sara Holland did a fantastic job with building suspense, and I am eagerly awaiting the sequel!


What book do I plan on reading next?

Hazel

The Hazel Wood has been on my TBR list since June, so I am excited to enter this fantastical world and see what Melissa Albert has in store for her readers. Plus, the cover is just GORGEOUS! I am all about fairy tales and myths, so this book is definitely right up my alley.


What book(s) are you currently reading?

I hope you all have a great week and Happy New Year!

Waiting on Wednesday – 11-15-2017

Hello everyone!

Today is Wednesday, which means it is time for the 3 WWW’s: What I am currently reading, What I recently finished, and What I plan on reading next.


What book(s) am I currently reading?

Wintersong

I read Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones earlier this year, so I am currently re-reading this beautiful book to prepare for Shadowsong, which I was lucky enough to grab an ARC of at YallFest. If you have not read Wintersong yet, I highly advise to place this book on you TBR list!

NeverSea

I am also reading NeverSea by Jenetta Penner and David R. Bernstein. This book comes out at the end of November, and is a retelling of The Little Mermaid & Peter Pan, but with a sci-fi twist. This book is so much fun; so if you are a fan of The Lunar Chronicles, I’d recommend to check out this book!


What book(s) did I recently finish reading?

Darkest Stars

Oh, I very much enjoyed this book. That ending was spectacular; the last few chapters were the best chapters of the book and I cannot wait to read the second book! My review is coming soon, so check that out when it’s released!


What book(s) do I plan on reading next?

I plan on reading these two books next, since I usually do not like to read one book at a time.

Everless

Haven

What book(s) are you currently reading? Happy reading!
