My Current Read

First_cover_of_the_paperback

I decided to give Glass Sword a break, and I finally picked this up. I bought this a few years ago and wanted something that wasn’t overly big to get me back into reading and at just over 300 pages it was a perfect choice!

1. Why did you decide to pick up this book – cover or content? 

For me this is definitely the content and the hype that was surrounding it that when the book was released. It was originally published as an e-book and then picked up by Hodder. At the time I loved books about angels and this offered an alternative spin on the creatures we love.

2. Who is your favourite character so far, and why? 

I’m just over a third of the way through and we haven’t been introduced to many of the main characters yet. Penryn, our POV, is great and she is strong, often having to fend for herself and her family. She definitely acts like an adult even though she is still a teenager. I am also beginning to like the angel she meets, too. He has some funny and sarcastic lines that annoy Penryn.

3. Will you finish this one?

Most definitely! I want to find out what will happen to her sister and as I know there are two more books in the series, I will most likely carry on reading them, too.

4. Finish the sentence: This book reminds me of…(other books, movies, tv shows…)

As it is set in a post-apocalyptic world, it reminds me of dystopian novels I have read in the past, but with a supernatural twists. Of course, we have the angels who are god-like in appearance, something most angels are in books (thinking back to Patch from Hush Hush). I feel that this book is definitely aimed more towards younger teenagers as the language and writing style seems more simple, with less description.

5. What type of read is this one? (slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)

This book moves quite quickly and I am finding it easy to make my way through it. It’s a fun read and I’m really enjoying it, a change of pace from Glass Sword.

Once I finish Angelfall, I have promised myself that I will finish reading Glass Sword so I can move onto the third book, King’s Cage. What book are you currently reading?

My Current Read

A Darker Shade Of Magic

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
