Currently Reading: HERE AND NOW AND THEN by Mike Chen
Cruising on through my SEVENTH book for July! Truly, I did well on my vacation at the beginning of the month! HERE AND NOW AND THEN is my first Mike Chen book. At a little over halfway through, my early feelings is that this is a charming and inventive book, though it is falling short of a home run emotionally. That said, I’m fully prepared to eat my words if the ending sneaks up on me, which has happened before!
Recently Finished: THE JASMINE THRONE by Tasha Suri
Wooow, this one was a WINNER. THE JASMINE THRONE has it all: empire politics, magic, sapphic love story, and women tearing down the patriarchy. It promised to check a lot of boxes for me, and I’m happy to say the love for the book wasn’t all hype! This is definitely going to be a favorite for 2021. You can read my review here – the TLDR is that if you like women wielding power both inside and outside the system, and romantic tension you can cut with a knife, pick THE JASMINE THRONE up!
Probable Next Read: THE EXILED FLEET by J.S. Dewes
It’s back to the ARC pile for me and I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED. I absolutely loved THE LAST WATCH by J.S. Dewes, and getting to read the sequel will (hopefully) be one of the highlights of my summer! This releases in mid-August, which is amazing turn around as the first book dropped April this year! I can’t wait to see what disasters away the Sentinels in the next outing, stay tuned for more updates!
