I feel like I’m being pretty optimistic trying to read four books this month given that last month I was pretty busy with work stuff and barely read, in fact I didn’t even manage to finish We Are Blood and Thunder. But it’s a new month and a fresh start so here goes.
A thrilling adventure, and a heart-breaking love story, The Burning Chambers is a historical novel of excitement, conspiracy and danger like no other
This is one of the library books I picked up the other month that I mentioned in my June To Read post, we also sell this at work which is where it first caught my eye. I’ve been quite into historical novels lately so I think this is why I’ve picked it up. I haven’t started this book yet and it’s quite a hefty one at 608 pages so I better start on this bad boy soon.
Coming to terms with your identity is always difficult. But for Ari, the 42nd reincarnation of King Arthur, it just got a whole lot more complicated. Gender-bending royalty, caustic wit and a galaxy-wide fight for peace and equality all collide in this epic adventure.
With an awkward adolescent Merlin and a rusty spaceship, this is the Arthurian legend as you have never before seen it.
I think I picked this up for a couple of quid on kindle, but this is a ya retelling of King Arthur, only this time Arthur is a teenage girl named Ari and it’s set in the future! Now I gotta admit I don’t really read sci fi novels so this is a first for me but I watched two King Arthur films before I bought this book so I guess I was on a King Arthur kick haha.
Over the last couple of months I completely binge read the Shadow of Bone trilogy and LOVED IT. I have completely and utterly fallen in love with the Grishaverse so can’t wait to discover more in the Six of Crows duology. I stupidly bought King of Scars which I thought I’d be ok to read without having read Six of Crows but nope, when the book arrived and I checked the blurb out and hello new character I’ve never met before, how ya doing? So maybe next month I’ll get round to reading King of Scars.
