For years, Gansey has been on a quest to find a lost king. One by one, he’s drawn others into this quest: Ronan, who steals from dreams; Adam, whose life is no longer his own; Noah, whose life is no longer a lie; and Blue, who loves Gansey… and is certain she is destined to kill him.

Now the endgame has begun. Dreams and nightmares are converging. Love and loss are inseparable. And the quest refuses to be pinned to a path.

September Wrap-Up

Wd125_15

Well, another month gone. I can’t believe that it’s October already, although it doesn’t feel like it because the high here is still about 90 degrees (not exaggerating).

 

This was definitely a slow reading/blogging month for me, as I was adjusting to school, getting my license (16, whoop!), and planning parties. Overall, I read a measly six books. I’m definitely going to have to make up for this in October. On the bright side, now that I have a car and can drive wherever my heart desires, book-buying is no longer limited to Amazon (smirk intensifies.)

Fifteen-year-old Ashira just received the worst coming-of-age prophecy imaginable.

After years dreaming of oceans, princes, and fairies, she expected to hear the words that would finally whisk her away from her ordinary desert village. Instead she hears, “you will live a life of no renown.”

Ready to choose her own fate, she discovers a djinni’s bottle and starts making wishes. When the djinni proves uncooperative and annoying, Ashira sets out to the great city of magicians to learn magic and free herself from an uneventful life as a potter’s daughter.

But there is another prophecy being whispered in the shadows. It is said that among the great magicians, there is a demon on the rise with the power to destroy the world. The djinni might be Ashira’s only chance to become someone important, or he just might be the very demon that triggered the dark prophecy.

With the world on the brink of destruction, can Ashira fight her fate and stop the forces that threaten to upset the balance of the universe?

The Ballroom by Anna Hope

Overview

My Rating: 3.75/5 Stars

This book was a little different for me, in terms of it being an adult historical fiction rather than a young adult. That being said, I didn’t find the change of pace boring. While the plot was a little slow, I found it was still a very compelling read. If you are one for characterization and imagery, this is the book for you.
