Hey there avid readers! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. It’s been a little hectic this week for me. Goodness this working FT is really starting to get to me, not only because it is morning and nights but it’s also not a set schedule, at least right now it’s not, which is probably why I’m so tired half the time, and then add to that the fact that I’m pregnant so whenever I work mornings, when I get home, I cook and then relax and while I always intend to read a little before bed, that doesn’t always happen. But we’ll see, my job is still restructuring. In the meantime, I’m probably going to take a week off from blogging sometime soon to give myself a chance to read and relax without feeling rushed to get the reviews out there. Don’t want the quality of my work to go down now do we.
So on that note, check out this weeks latest reading list. Happy reading!
The rite has existed for as long as anyone can remember: when the prince-who-will-be-king comes of age, he must venture out into the gray lands, slay a fierce dragon, and rescue a damsel to be his bride. This is the way things have always been.
When Ama wakes in the arms of Prince Emory, however, she knows none of this. She has no memory of what came before she was captured by the dragon, or what horrors she has faced in its lair. She knows only this handsome prince, the story he tells of her rescue, and her destiny to sit on the throne beside him. Ama comes with Emory back to the kingdom of Harding, hailed as the new princess, welcomed to the court.
However, as soon as her first night falls, she begins to realize that not all is as it seems, that there is more to the legends of the dragons and the damsels than anyone knows–and that the greatest threats to her life may not be behind her, but here, in front of her.
In this fifth instalment in Soman Chainani’s New York Times bestselling fantasy series, The School for Good and Evil, Sophie, Agatha, and their friends must find a way to overthrow the sinister evil that twists lies into the truth and seeks to rewrite their story.

Now Agatha and the students at the School for Good and Evil must find a way to restore Tedros to his throne and save Camelot . . . before all of their fairy tales come to a lethal end.

Two centuries after the Salem witch trials, there’s still one witch left in Massachusetts. But she doesn’t even know it.
Take this as a warning: if you are not able or willing to control yourself, it will not only be you who suffers the consequences but those around you, as well.
New Oldbury, 1821
