The Wind is one of the main characters in my current read. I love this perspective! A Breath of Mischief by MarcyKate Connolly is going to “take your breath away.” That’s all I’m saying for now, besides, “Will you LOOK at this book cover?” Wow! (Sourcebooks Young Readers, April 4, 2023)

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

IMWAYR: I Finished a Fantastic Book

Heartless Heirs is the second book of the duology, Twin Daggers by MarcyKate Connolly. The adventure, and the struggle, continues for the Magi and the Technocrats in the ancient-like city of Palinor. Magi leaders have been sacrified, and a dangerous traitor has emerged. Heartless Heirs picks up an hour after Twin Daggers, with heroines Aissa and Zandria, the Magi super-twins with special powers, running away with their childhood friend, Remy, and Aissa’s new love, the Technocrat prince, Aro. Ahead of them is adventure, romance…and more danger than they can possibly imagine.

A grateful thank you to Blink YA Books, HarperCollins, and Net Galley for the early read. Put this one on your pre-order list. Heartless Heirs publishes August 10, 2021.

IMWAYR: Blink YA Book — Coming Soon!

In between coughs and sneezes, I’m reading. This week I’ll finish…

We Had to Be Brave by Deborah Hopkinson.

I finished an upcoming fabulous mystery/modern tragedy called Twin Daggers by MarcyKate Connolly. I love Blink YA Books titles, and this one does not disappoint. It comes out in August, but add it to your reading list now so you don’t forget about it.

Next up…I haven’t decided yet.

 

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

This meme is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…you just might discover your next “must-read” book!

Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and Kathryn decided to give “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join us! We love this meme and think you will, too. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
