After an unintentional hiatus, I’m finally back! As you may know I took a trip to the UK and Ireland last month and between preparing for it and actually traveling I couldn’t make content for the blog (for which I’m sooo sorry). But I’m back to Argentina now, with brand new plans for my next trip and all the excitement and energy to pick the blog back up!

Without further ado, here’s my Friday reads for a book I juuust finished yesterday but I wanted to mention anyways:

Friday read 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. Continue reading “Friday Reads·The Red Scrolls of Magic”

Book Beginnings

This book actually has three first sentences and since I didn’t know which one to choose you get all three:

From the prologue

The Matriarch of House Kore was running late for a dinner.

From “the archival records”

The art of Forging is as old as civilization itself.

From the first proper chapter

Séverin glanced at the clock: two minutes left.

The Friday 56

The day he said that was the day he realized some memories have a taste. That day, his mouth was full of blood, and so his promise tasted like salt and iron.

WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words.

It’s basically to check in, see what I’m reading at real-time.

This month, in honor of Black History Month, I’m trying to read as many books by black authors as I can. Although all the books I’m reading I was planning on reading before the challenge, the only difference is that now I have an excuse to read them all one after the other.

You can check out the Diversity challenge I’m doing in an effort of reading more diversely

As usual, click on the covers to go to the books’ GR page

The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?

  • What do you think you’ll read next?
