What I’m currently reading
Lucky me received an ARC of Holly Evans’ newest novella, Infernal Ties! I’ve been looking forward to reading it for a while, so when this arrived in my inbox it changed my reading plans a little. It’s a very fast read so I’m nearly done with it already despite only just having started it.
It’s an exciting prequel to the series which will begin later this year. My full review will follow next week Thursday 🙂
The Hawke twins are hunters. They keep the supernal community of Prague in line, and they’re good at it. The witches whisper their names when something goes bump in the night, and the lycans tell stories of them to make their cubs behave. When Quin doesn’t come home after what should have been a quick rogue-disposal, Evie begins to worry.
Evelyn Hawke is a force to be reckoned with. Nothing and no one will stop her from getting her twin back. She’ll do whatever it takes, even dive into the supernal world and work with those she despises to find Quin and dig him out of the very large hole he’s got himself into.
Little does she know the far-reaching consequences of her actions.
What I recently finished reading
Six of Crows was one of my first tbr-list additions on Goodreads nearly a year ago, so I figured it’s about time I read this! I was worried it got over-hyped for me because when I first came across it people were shouting it from the rooftops, but fortunately that wasn’t the case. It was a fantastic read with incredible world building and amazing characters (Why am I even telling you this? You already know this! If you’re as late to it as I was, read it NOW!), and has left me excited for Book 2. My review shall follow tomorrow 🙂
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Kaz’s crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
What I think I’ll read next
No change here! Since my ARC of Infernal Ties arrived I’ve had to push this back a little, but I’ll read it next time – I’m fairly sure that I’m not waiting for any other free books at the moment… And since I’m very nearly done with Infernal Ties now, I’ll likely start this
tomorrow if not today today 🙂
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother-or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
