Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
For those of you who are not familiar, Illuminae is quite the unique book. Told through a compilation of military reports, instant messages, emails, surveillance footage reports and pictures, Illuminae tells the story of Kadie and Ezra after their planet has been invaded. After escaping on spaceships, we read these documents to piece together an exciting story filled with space travel, government corruption and betrayals. It took me a while to understand what was happening, but I am thoroughly enjoying it now!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I loved this story! Karou is an intriguing heroine and Taylor builds a unique and beautiful world in Prague. The plot and mystery is wonderful, although it did slow down towards the middle of the book. Nevertheless, I absolutely recommend this book if you are interested! My full review will be up tomorrow.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne
I adored this story and it gave me some major Harry Potter nostalgia. While I can’t compare it to the magic of the first seven books, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. In my opinion, it should really be considered a standalone story rather than the “eighth” Harry Potter book. It is its own unique story, however it does reference many scenes from the original series. It was a beautiful tribute to all of our beloved characters. I hope I get to see it live one day! My full review for this will be up towards the end of the month.
A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess (ARC)
I know I didn’t include this book on my last WWW but I recently got this ARC approved on NetGalley, and with the release date coming up I decided to read it. This book was fantastic! Cluess certainly knows how to tell a magical story. Henrietta is an intelligent, likable heroine who discovers that she is a sorcerer. Set in Victorian London, this book is a great mix of well-developed characters, magical world-building and unexpected plot twists. I definitely recommend this one! My review will be up in about one month, closer to the release date.
What I’ll Read Next:
Legend by Marie Lu
I’ve heard good things about Marie Lu’s Legend trilogy, so I am excited to dive into this soon. I don’t know much about the plot yet, but I am sure I will enjoy!
The Delphi Effect by Rysa Walker (ARC)
I am a fan of Walker’s CHRONOS series so when I saw this on NetGalley I requested it right away. I love stories about ghosts and mediators so I am excited to start this one.
GRE Prep Book
This is kind of a joke…but I actually do have to start studying for the GRE soon *cry* so I can apply to grad school. I hope my reading doesn’t slow down too much but I do have to dedicate a good chunk of time to studying. Sad!
