 🌿 What I Read Last Week  🌿

Skyward (Skyward #1) by Brandon Sanderson

39348113Spensa’s world has been under attack for decades. Now pilots are the heroes of what’s left of the human race, and becoming one has always been Spensa’s dream. Since she was a little girl, she has imagined soaring skyward and proving her bravery. But her fate is intertwined with that of her father’s—a pilot himself who was killed years ago when he abruptly deserted his team, leaving Spensa the daughter of a coward, her chances of attending Flight School slim to none.

No one will let Spensa forget what her father did, yet fate works in mysterious ways. Flight school might be a long shot, but she is determined to fly. And an accidental discovery in a long-forgotten cavern might just provide her with a way to claim the stars.

|| Goodreads || My Review ||

Maybe you already know all my thoughts on, cause I’ve uploaded a very extensive review about it, but anyway, OMG, was a very pleasant surprise for me. I don’t usually read sci-fi and less when the story takes place in space, I don’t know why but it’s not my thing, so I go into this one with few expectations, even though I knew that everyone was loving it, I knew that maybe wasn’t for me but surprisingly IT WAS!!!. I think it’s a very complex book, that not only has a lot of space terminology and scenes of the characters piloting ships, but also discusses a lot the human side of people and what really being a hero means and how it affects our growth the way we’re seen and treated by others people. The main character is very difficult to understand at first, but you get to do it, in some way, when you explore her past and how her life has been, and I think it’s very fascinating. How much she growth and the fact that she learns to trust people again makes me want the second book SO MUCH, there are so many revelations that I need to explore further.
As I said in my review, I can’t believe that took me so long to read something by the author, now I know I’ll grab anything written by him in the future!! I highly recommend this book, it’s huge, so maybe it takes a little time to read, it but it’s really worth it

Heart of Mist (The Oremere Chronicles #1) by Helen Scheuerer

36128982In a realm where toxic mist sweeps the lands and magic is forbidden, all Bleak wants is a cure for her power.

Still grieving the death of her guardian and dangerously self-medicating with alcohol, Bleak is snatched from her home by the Commander of the King’s Army, and summoned to the capital. But the king isn’t the only one interested in Bleak’s powers. 

The leader of an infamous society of warriors, the Valia Kindred, lays claim to her as well, and Bleak finds herself in the middle of a much bigger battle than she anticipated. 

Heart of Mist is the gripping first book in The Oremere Chronicles, a fantasy series of epic proportions.

This book wasn’t in my plans for this month, at all, but the author has been kind enough to contact me to review the entire trilogy because the third book will be out in July, so after reading the blurb I accepted immediately, I think It sounds really interesting and it ends up being really good, I read it very fast since the way it’s told makes it very easy to read. The story follows a main character with alcoholism problems which is very interesting to find on fantasy, I appreciate the author touches a real-life thing and I think it’s one of the strongest points of the book, I also liked the construction of the Realms and I think there’s a lot to explore in terms of the magic system.
It’s a solid book to be an introduction to a great trilogy, there are many things that still need more development, and although I don’t really connect that much with the character, there are several revelations that make me feel very excited to pick the next book out
I have already written my full review, and will be on the blog on Wednesday, in case you want to know more about it!

 🌿 What I’m Reading At Present  🌿

The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta

35053372The spellbinding tale of six queer witches forging their own paths, shrouded in the mist, magic, and secrets of the ancient California redwoods.

Danny didn’t know what she was looking for when she and her mother spread out a map of the United States and Danny put her finger down on Tempest, California. What she finds are the Grays: a group of friends who throw around terms like queer and witch like they’re ordinary and everyday, though they feel like an earthquake to Danny. But Danny didn’t just find the Grays. They cast a spell that calls her halfway across the country, because she has something they need: she can bring back Imogen, the most powerful of the Grays, missing since the summer night she wandered into the woods alone. But before Danny can find Imogen, she finds a dead boy with a redwood branch through his heart. Something is very wrong amid the trees and fog of the Lost Coast, and whatever it is, it can kill. Lush, eerie, and imaginative, Amy Rose Capetta’s tale overflows with the perils and power of discovery — and what it means to find your home, yourself, and your way forward.

I haven’t started with it yet, but I’m about to do it, I think it sounds very good so I hope to enjoy it. I’ll not be able to read the whole book in a day so I don’t think I’ll get to do it before its release date that’s tomorrow, but I’ll still read it and give you my opinion once I finish it. I hope it’s as amazing as it sounds

 🌿 Up Next  🌿


If I tell you exactly what I’ll be reading, I would probably lie, because I have no idea, but maybe it’s between these two: The Summer of Ellen by Agnete Friis or Shadow Me (Shatter Me # 4.5) by Tahereh Mafi. The first one is an ARC, so I’ll probably be jumping into it as soon as possible, but Shadow Me is mostly for pure pleasure because I miss the world and Kenji a lot

  1. I am the same with sci-fi (especially the space ones), but I still want to try out all the sci-fi books hoping that I find that one that I actually end up loving so much, lol. So weird, because I actually love to watch TV shows about space haha. I’m happy to hear that Skyward was for you though! Maybe I need to check it out as well and maybe it’ll be for me too.

    • Oh, I’m feeling you!!, the same thing happens to me, I’m glad we don’t give up, though! 😅 The funny thing is that one of my favorite TV shows is Doctor Who and it’s super extra sci-fi lol
      I think we have similar problems with the genre so I would recommend that you try Skyward, I think it has a lot of content that you can enjoy and I must admit that I even enjoyed some battles scenes, which isn’t my thing but are VERY well written 😊

  2. I hope you enjoy The Lost Coast💕. Though it wasn’t my favorite read, it definitely was super whimsical and atmospheric!

    I’ve just finished Wicked Saints, and I’m about to start The Wise and The Wicked, and I cannot wait!

    • I just finished with The Lost Coast and it’s a shame but I feel that it wasn’t for me, I just didn’t enjoy it as I expected, but hey, I guess sometimes it happens and it’s just not for me, I guess 😊
      Have you enjoyed The Wicked Saints? OMG, I need to know everything! 😄

      • Oh, that’s so sad, but I totally understand because that same thing happened to me, too! Hopefully your next read will be better😊.

        I actually really enjoyed it! It was a bit slow and I wasn’t sold on the ending, but I really loved the characters and the tension and chemistry between Nadya and Malachiasz💕.

  3. I am reading 2 VERY different books right now lol. I’m reading Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo and I’ll be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara (a true crime about the Golden State Killer). 😂

  4. I’ve been seeing The Lost Coast everywhere! I hope you enjoy it, I can’t wait to read your thoughts!!
    I can’t remember what I was reading before this (it’s still too early in the morning haha) but I’m now reading The Handmaid’s Tale for my English oral evaluation that’s going to be later this month. I’m not halfway, but quite close, and I’m really enjoying it. I’m also reading Winter, but I don’t count that anymore xD It’s a buddy read and we’ve been reading it for over a year …. (but I’m loving it nevertheless)
    I have no idea what I’ll read next. I’ll have textbooks to focus on, so I might distract myself with some poetry … On my TBR I also have The Winner’s Curse and The Cruel Prince, maybe one of those?

    • Sadly, The Lost Coast wasn’t for me, today I’ll be writing my review to upload on the blog it soon, I’m so disappointed, I really thought that I would love it. Everyone is loving it, though, so maybe it’s an unpopular opinion, but hey, sometimes it happens, right? 😊
      I’ve heard incredible things about The Handmaid’s Tale, the book and the TV series are super loved, so maybe I should read it someday!
      Well, I LOVE The Cruel Prince a lot so I can recommend that to you,😍 and as for The Winner’s Curse, I read it and although I enjoyed some aspects I will not be continuing with that trilogy, another unpopular opinion here lol
      I hope whatever your next reading you enjoy a lot, and have a great month! 💕

      • well, i think i’ll go with the winner’s curse because i know (or i hope haha) i’ll love the cruel prince and i wanna be able to get the sequel asap ahah i’m watching the handmaid’s tale and the tv show is really good and accurate! and the book adds a lot more depth into it. i’m not finished but i love it so far!
        i’m sorry the lost coast wasn’t for you, and i hope your next reading is much better! ❤
