“No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now. When the unthinkable happens, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, former prisoner of Sikander. With nothing and no one else to turn to, Amrita and Thala are forced to rely on each other. But while Amrita feels responsible for her kingdom and sets out to warn her people, the newly free Thala has no such ties. She encourages Amrita to go on a quest to find the fabled Library of All Things, where it is possible for each of them to reverse their fates. To go back to before Sikander took everything from them.” —Goodreads

Hey there readers! Okay so like I said before I was going to showcase what I was reading for school and maybe, depending on the content, write reviews of what I have read. Also time is a big issue as well. I only have so many hours in a day. I will also be sorting this list by my classes. You might be wondering why the heck I am doing this. Well here’s there reason: because I can? I know, I’m a weirdo, that’s a fact, but I guess what I’m also trying to do is stay on top of my reading and if this is going to help me do that, well then here we go. I also want to make my school life more familiar with my readers – hey, that’s you guys! – and generate interest in what I am doing here at school as well as comments on my reading material.
Like I said, I’m a weird one. But I would like to make a note that professors are assigning sections of the material below. So if you see it again that means that we are either still reading it or that we are reading another section of it. Just wanted to make that clear.
