FR·The Silvered Serpents ARC

Friday Reads

Friday reads was invented by The Candid cover, It’s a book meme that mixes two already existing:

  • Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
  • The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.

My Current read

45044785. sy475 Expected publication: February 4th 2020

IS this legal? Can I share quotes?? Idek

Book Beginnings

The matriarch of House Kore adjusted the Christmas present in her arms.

Quick look into the past, before things went to shit. I love when authors consider we haven’t suffered enough and so they give us more tragic backstory

The Friday 56

“We need to–” started (NAME), but a crashing sound drowned out her words as a stone hand the size of an armchair pummeled through the ceiling.

WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING I need to keep reading

Book Blogger Hop-The same but different

About the Book Blogger Hop by Coffee Adicted Writer

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, I relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question:.

Have you ever enjoyed the same book in two or more formats?

For example, print and ebook, print and audiobook, ebook and audiobook, or all three?

Resultado de imagen para same but not gif

YES! I’m a big fan of doing this! I have two very good examples:

  1. A Darker Shade of Magic, I bought this one in Spanish paperback and started reading it like that, then one day I forgot it home but wanted to keep reading so I bought it on Kindle (in English) I liked the writing much better like that so I finished the book on my kindle although I had the physical copy at hand
  2. One of my favorite books is The Name of the Wind but I don’t actually own the book. One of my uncles lent it to me a while ago and that’s how I read it. I wanted to re-read it a few times and instead of buying my own physical copy I decided to get the audiobook and I enjoyed re-visiting the story in that new format instead!

This week I hopped to:

Fadwa hosted an amazing discussion post by Rvkayah about how it was like to grow up without diverse books. We all love to talk about how important diversity is and how happy we are that there is so much more color now but this is a look back, at how things used to be.

Taasia @Librae Paints Pages did a vert interesting post about why bookstagram may not be for everybody and I agree with all of the points, so you may want to give it a look as well.,

ARC August

We’re almost done with August and my objective of rereading my way through it is halfway done, however I’ve also dedicated a lot of time to ARCs and today I’ll tell you about the ones I’ve read so far,,

ARCs or Advanced Reader Copies are copies provided by the publishers 
to reviewers so that we can hype the book before the release date

If you want to get your own ARCs then head over to NetGalley and make an account, it’s the easiest way to get started and most titles are published there. As long as you remember to review most of the books you get approved for, you’ll do great

The Rules

  • Spell your blog name with other blog names!

Do you read historical fiction?

Sometimes. It has to be a really interesting book and/or come highly recommended for me to try it but I do pick them up from time to time


This week I hopped to:

As you saw the other day, I did a Hadestown book tag and that one came from a blog called Readers, Rambles & Reviews, they have a fantastic blog with really diverse content, not only books, so I recommend giving it a look!

Another blog I hopped to is a usual of mine that came up with an unusual post: Book song parodies. Perfectly Tolerable is an amazing blog and Brittany has made a compilation of all kinds of musical parodies found on youtube for you enjoyment

Finally, The Bibliophagist just posted their Anything But Books tag and it’s great so everyone should go see it

Witchmark by CL Polk

Title: Witchmark

Series: The Kingston Cycle #1

Author: C.L. Polk

Publisher: Tor.com

Format: E-Book

Length: 318 pages

Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆

Summary:

36187110. sy475 C. L. Polk arrives on the scene with Witchmark, a stunning, addictive fantasy that combines intrigue, magic, betrayal, and romance.

In an original world reminiscent of Edwardian England in the shadow of a World War, cabals of noble families use their unique magical gifts to control the fates of nations, while one young man seeks only to live a life of his own.

Magic marked Miles Singer for suffering the day he was born, doomed either to be enslaved to his family’s interest or to be committed to a witches’ asylum. He went to war to escape his destiny and came home a different man, but he couldn’t leave his past behind. The war between Aeland and Laneer leaves men changed, strangers to their friends and family, but even after faking his own death and reinventing himself as a doctor at a cash-strapped veterans’ hospital, Miles can’t hide what he truly is.

When a fatally poisoned patient exposes Miles’ healing gift and his witchmark, he must put his anonymity and freedom at risk to investigate his patient’s murder. To find the truth he’ll need to rely on the family he despises, and on the kindness of the most gorgeous man he’s ever seen.
