FR·A Gathering of Shadows

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

36205455. sx318 Yes, I’m reading in Spanish and it feels weird.

Funfact! The title in Spanish actually translates to Council of Shadows wich does sound slightly more badass

All translations are my own

Book Beginnings

Delilah Bard had a gift for finding trouble.

She does and I love her. I’m so excited to get back into this world!

The Friday 56

Life on Grey London had taught her how to rest without ever really sleeping.

Than sounds… healthy… Nobody said pirates were the models for mental health but I do hope that Lila can get better while living on the ship; maybe learn to relax a little bit.

In Spanish! Because I borrowed it but I think I’m gonna buy the English version… the translation is SO bad, you all…

What did you recently finish reading?

On Audiobook and it was amazing. Here’s my full review but the short of it is: 5/5 Stars would read again and can’t wait for the sequel!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Finally coming out this month after a lot of grief because of shitty people trying to scam the author::

42379806. sy475 **I’m reading this on audiobook so the quotes are as accurate as I can make them

This bbook is SO GOOD though. I can’t stop reading it, it’s super cute and hard hitting at the same time. Rosa has to deal with a feeling of disconect with her cuban roots while planning a festival to save her town, falling in love witth a cute guy with a boat and deciding where to go to college.

I’m actually listening to the audiobook, which you can also listen to if you have a Spotify account!

1. Why did you decide to pick up this book–cover or content?

Cover and Author. As you may or may not know, this month I’m taking part in the Latinxathon in honor of Latinx Heritage Month and I’ve been seeing this book on my twitter feed for so long that this was the first to pop into my mind when crafting a TBR. I actually didn’t know what it was about until I started reading/listening

2. Who is your favorite character so far, and why?

Is it too cliché to say Rosa? She is just so sunny and ultra-organized and kind that I love her

3. Will you finish this one?

A thousand times YES and there’s a high probability that I’ll reread it soon as well, it’s just that good

4. This book reminds me of…

My own experience growing up latina in another country, trying to find a sense of identity and being a teenager

5. What type of read is this one? (Slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)

Cannot put it down. I’ll most likely finish it by the end of this week so you’ll get a review either next monday or the following

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

I’m picking this back up and not putting it down until I’m done! It took me a couple of chapters to get into it (because I kept getting distracted with other new releases) but this time I’ll finish it!

Book Beginnings

Book Beginnings

Ask me to spin the finest yarn or thread, and I can do it faster than any man– even with my eyes closed. Yet ask me to tell a lie, and I will stumble and falter to think of one.

I immediately trust her and want her to be happy. Natural honesty is just so precious to me, I hope nothing bad happens ever but I’m not holding my breath….

The Friday 56

“I saw how protective [he] is of you. Yet he respects you.”

Hmmmmmmm who could this be about???


This book is so amazing that I’m reading it in just two days. The main character is brave and believable, the love interest is tall-dark-and-handsome done right, and the world building is compelling.

The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?

  • What did you recently finish reading?

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

My answers for today are quite varied, I don’t think I ever did one of these with three books from three different genres!
