How is it already Thursday? How is August already half over?
Unfortunately, I don’t have answers to these questions – but I DO have a short “books in progress” TBR Thursday post to share with you today.
This week, I am listening to one book, and reading another, and so far they are both shaping up to be enjoyable selections!
I started listening to Crown of Secrets by Melanie Cellier, which would totally fit for the “Judge a Book By It’s Cover” prompt from our 2021 Book Challenge, because that cover is gor-geous. (I’ve already fulfilled that one, though LOL). This one is set in a world of magic, where Verene is the first Royal ever born without the gift of magic, even though her mother is apparently the most powerful mage ever born. So, Verene agrees to go to Academy in a neighboring kingdom – her peoples’ sworn enemy – she’s hoping it will be a change to prove herself. This one has so much potential – magical school, someone without magic, probably a little bit of enemies to lovers… I’m hoping it’s as good as it sounds like it will be!
For a physical read, I started The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow. This is about a girl who finds an enchanted book and learns about doors to other worlds. I’ve read a few positive reviews, and Goodreads has suggested it to me numerous times as “based on things you’ve read we think you’ll like this one” sidebar suggestion, so when Overdrive had it available to “borrow immediately” I snagged the ebook. I’m only about 30 pages in, but so far I’m really enjoying it and finding it a very “readable” book.
In the event I get through both of these quickly, I’m planning to finally start listening to The Princess Will Save You, which was on my list for my last TBR but I got completely distracted by the Olympics, so… *cough* It’ll get its turn soon, I promise.
Have you read any of the books on my list this week? If so, did you enjoy them? Feel free to let me know what you thought in the comments, below!
