YESSSS!! I’m finally reading A Conjuring Of Light by V.E. Schwab… I’ve been wanting to read this third and final book ever since I finished AGOS last year and it was my nr. 1 most anticipated release this year. My ARC mountain prevented me from picking it up straight away, but I decided to let myself give in as a birthday present. And what a wonderful present it was! I’m loving every single minute of this book so far, although I’m kind of fearing it will break my heart more than once and I don’t want it to be over… Shades Of Magic is probably one of my all time favorite series.

My teaser (16%):

“God be with you,” said Bard dryly.

“What?” he asked, confused.

“Nothing,” she muttered. “Just try to stay alive.”

I added Jeff Zentner to my list of new favorite authors as soon as I finished The Serpent King, and Goodbye Days has been one of my most anticipated releases this year. I couldn’t believe my Netgalley request for this title was actually approved! This version is due next month and I was going to read other ARCs first, but I just couldn’t resist temptation any longer. I’m literally flying through the pages and the writing style is just as good as his debut!

My teaser (6%):

“I squint against the dazzling light while I rummage for my keys and consider how blithely bright the day is. The spinning world and the burning sun don’t care much whether we stay or go. It’s nothing personal.”

Confession: I was going to read the first book of this trilogy by Lauren Bird Horowitz before reading the sequel, but I ran out of time and will have no other option but to jump right into book 2. I feel really bad about this and I hate not reading books in order, but I read some reviews of the first book and I’m keeping my fingers crossed it won’t make me enjoy Renegade Red less. I’ve peeked a little and the writing style is so beautiful! I can’t wait to properly start this story later today…

My teaser (20%):

“At first, there was only the crash: Noa existed completely within it, her whole existence the reverberation of bones against steel. Or not steel, but something just as cold and hard – something broken and uneven, knots and twists of … stones and roots?”

I’m basically drowning in a pool of ARCs right now, but I decided to give myself a little break and pick up my copy of The Song Of Achilles by Madeline Miller. I have been wanting to read this story for ages now, and so far it’s just as good as everyone kept promising me! I’m definitely going to try and finish it before the end of today.

My teaser (20%):

“There was something in Chiron’s face, firm and calm and imbued with authority, that made us children again, with no world beyond this moment’s play and this night’s dinner. With him near us, it was hard to remember what might have happened on the day by the beach.”

I’ve recently started another of my Netgalley ARCs: A Gentleman In Moscow by Amor Towles. This book has been on my radar for a while now and was actually a Goodreads Choice Awards nominee last year, so I was stoked to find this version being offered at Netgalley. I enjoy reading historical fiction and it’s been too long since I last read a book set in Russia… I’m not far at all, but the beginning is interesting although a bit unusual.

My teaser (1%):

“Though the Count had greeted them in this manner a hundred times before, both responded with a wide-eyed stare. It was the sort of reception one might have expected when arriving for a dinner party having forgotten to don one’s pants.”

I’m still kicking myself for not picking up Rebel Of The Sands sooner, but at least it does mean I can read the sequel straight away… I was honestly a bit shocked my request for Traitor To The Throne was approved, but I’m not complaining. 😉 Especially since I LOVED the first book. I’ve heard mixed things about it, but I’ve fallen in love with the worldbuilding, magic, main characters and Alwyn Hamilton‘s writing style. I’m not too far into the sequel yet, mostly because I still have to write a review of the first book and don’t want the two books to be mixed up. But I can’t wait to continue this one as soon as I’ve finished my review! 😀

My teaser (10%):

“He chose the second one. But I was faster than his stupid brain could work. I dropped to my knees a second before the gun went off, the bullet burying itself harmlessly in the wall behind me.”

I’ve been away for the last couple of days and somehow thought I had posts scheduled until today… But apparently I was wrong. Oops?! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend… I personally didn’t read much while I was away, but I have a great excuse: one of my best friends got married last Saturday! :D

I picked up my ARC of Little Girl Lost by Carol Wyer on the drive over, and while I didn’t have time to finish it yet, I’m really enjoying this psychological thriller so far. Lots and lots of messed up characters and twists, and I will be looking forward to find out exactly what is going on.

My teaser (38%):

“They are clearly talking about me. One of them is right. I don’t want to be pretty. I don’t want to look nice. I know what happens to pretty girls.”
