Today I’ll share with you the books that I will read this month. However, I’m changing my “TBR” a bit! Let’s be honest, I never managed to stick to the list! So I will only tell you at the beginning of each month, what I’m currently reading, what’s the status and what my rating of the book could be! But I will also tell you what I plan to read in case I’m participating in a Read-a-Thon.
And without further ado, let’s start!
#1 – Assassin’s Apprentice – Farseer Trilogy #1 – Robin Hobb – Paperback – 435 pages – Currently on page 45 (10%) – Owls Read-a-Thon 2018 – Possible rating: between 📖📖📖📖 & 📖📖📖📖📖
Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father’s gruff stableman. He is treated as an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him secretly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitz’s blood runs the magic Skill–and the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family.
As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the throne, he may just be the key to the survival of the kingdom.
So this is a book that I’m reading for the Owls Read-a-Thon 2018 created by Magical Readathon.
This will be my Charms O.W.L and I hope to complete it at the end of the month.
#2 – In her Skin – Kim Savage – ebook (review copy)* – 304 pages – Currently at 50% – EasterReadathon – Possible rating: 📖📖📖📖
Sixteen-year-old con artist Jo Chastain is about to take on the biggest heist of her life: impersonating a missing girl. Life on the streets of Boston these past few years hasn’t been easy, and Jo is hoping to cash in on a little safety, a little security. She finds her opportunity in the Lovecrafts, a wealthy family with ties to the unsolved disappearance of Vivienne Weir, who vanished when she was nine.
When Jo takes on Vivi’s identity and stages the girl’s miraculous return, the Lovecrafts welcome her back with open arms. They give her everything she could want: love, money, and proximity to their intoxicating and unpredictable daughter, Temple. But nothing is as it seems in the Lovecraft household—and some secrets refuse to stay buried. As hidden crimes come to the surface, and lines of deception begin to blur, Jo must choose to either hold onto an illusion of safety, or escape the danger around her before it’s too late.
