The Vanishing Spark of Dust

The Vanishing Spark of Dusk by Sara Baysinger was an interesting sci-fi romance about freedom and finding one’s voice. I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts about this one with you. Come back on January 4th, 2018 to check out my review!

Waiting on but still Can’t Wait Wednesdays #1

Can't Wait Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa of  Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read.

I’ve decided to adopt these memes for Words That Fly, except that I’ll only be doing it every month on the last Wednesday of the month, and I’ll be using it to highlight those books that I absolutely can’t wait until they’re released and I can get my hands on them.

This month, it’s Tamora Pierce‘s new book Tempests and Slaughter, which is book one in the Numair Chronicles. I absolutely love all of Tamora’s Tortall series and absolutely can’t wait to see this new book, especially as it’s her first in the Tortall series to feature a male protagonist.

Tempests and Slaughter

Tempests and Slaughter (The Numair Chronicles #1)
Tamora Pierce
Fantasy
February 6th, 2018

Arram. Varice. Ozorne. In the first book in the Numair Chronicles, three student mages are bound by fate . . . fated for trouble.

Arram Draper is a boy on the path to becoming one of the realm’s most powerful mages. The youngest student in his class at the Imperial University of Carthak, he has a Gift with unlimited potential for greatness–and for attracting danger. At his side are his two best friends: Varice, a clever girl with an often-overlooked talent, and Ozorne, the “leftover prince” with secret ambitions. Together, these three friends forge a bond that will one day shape kingdoms. And as Ozorne gets closer to the throne and Varice gets closer to Arram’s heart, Arram begins to realize that one day soon he will have to decide where his loyalties truly lie.

In the Numair Chronicles, readers will be rewarded with the never-before-told story of how Numair Salmalín came to Tortall. Newcomers will discover an unforgettable fantasy adventure where a kingdom’s future rests on the shoulders of a talented young man with a knack for making vicious enemies.

City of Bones

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare made for an enjoyable, Christmas Eve reread. Jace is so delightfully full of himself and so unapologetic about who he is. I’ve always found him to be a very refreshing and complex character.

So I’m not actively reading anything currently. What a shock. For my break, I went back to old favourites and made sure I didn’t read anything new. But as you’re about to see I have a lot of goodies to choose from now.

Sense and Sensibility     The Heartbreak Cure     Whisper

Guys! I totally reached last week’s goal and passed it! Three books instead of two! Who’s a boss? That’s right: I am! So, first off: Sense and Sensibility was disappointing. Yup, disappointing. Let me issue this disclaimer real quick: I legit LOVE Jane Austen. L-O-V-E. Pride and Prejudice is my favourite book and my favourite movie (2007 version with Keira Knightley) of all time. That being said, Sense and Sensibility just paled in comparison. I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys, but if you’re interested in reading my spoiler filled, mini rant on Goodreads, you can check it out here. These other two books were recently received and kind of just jumped the line of my TBR pile. Reviews to come. Continue reading
