I saw this on The Introverted Bookworm and just had to join in. What Are You Reading Wednesday was created by Rhianna, Marissa, and Kendall. The idea of What Are You Reading Wednesday is to create an online space for bookworms to chat, discuss and recommend their current reads. All you have to do is answer a few questions and link up with one of the host’s sites. So easy!
Share the book/s you are reading with their author, maybe even the cover, and then answer these questions for at least one of them
- Why did you decide to pick up this book–cover or content?
- Who is your favourite character so far, and why?
- Will you finish this one?
- Finish the sentence: This book reminds me of…(other books, movies, tv shows…)
- What type of read is this one? (slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)
My Current Read
Kell is one of the last Antari—magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black.
Kell was raised in Arnes—Red London—and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador, travelling between the frequent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of George III in the dullest of Londons, the one without any magic left to see.
Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they’ll never see. It’s a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.
After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.
Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, they’ll first need to stay alive.
1. Why did you decide to pick up this book – cover or content?
I actually picked up this book after watching one of Peruse Project’s videos on YouTube, where she talked about some of her favourite fantasy books. After reading a little more about the book I just knew it would be one that I’d love.
2. Who is your favourite character so far, and why?
I would have to say Kell (the main character), although Lila is a close second. He’s very intriguing to me and the fact that he is one of the only Antari left makes him unique. I feel that he is only going to become more complex as the book goes on and he is a definite risk taker. Some of his decisions have already got him into trouble and I can only imagine what else will happen.
3. Will you finish this one?
One hundred percent yes and I will definitely have to go out and buy the rest of the trilogy.
4. Finish the sentence: This book reminds me of…(other books, movies, tv shows…)
I feel like this is such a difficult question because in all honesty I’ve never read anything like it. With the magic, it is elemental magic and there are lots of books where characters can wield the elements such as the House Of Night series. Apart from that, it doesn’t mind me of anything else I’ve read or seen.
5. What type of read is this one? (slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)
In one word, captivating. From starting this book I haven’t wanted to stop reading and I want to know more about the worlds. It is so intriguing and magical, yet dark. If I had all the time in the world I could read this in one sitting.
I have really enjoyed answering these questions and I think this will be something I take part in every Wednesday. What book are you currently reading?#whatareyoureadingwednesday
