Reading Challenge Update #6

Another checked from the list and I am loving all of my choices so far. I just finished #8 – “a book published in 2017”

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah Maas (May 2, 2017)Untitled

I can say that I haven’t been disappointed in this series yet. This is the 3rd installment. In a world where the magical are separated from the humans by a wall, Feyre is a human that is thrusted into this incredibly dangerous world. The magical world is split into courts. It is so spellbounding. Since I have traveled through 3 books, Feyre journey is filled to the brim with danger, love, and drama with twist and turns mixed in. If you like otherworldly books, this series is for you.

I also just finished another book that wasn’t on my list but I am so happy a picked this one up.636067083719787945-1766573268_All-the-Light-We-Cannot-See-by-Anthony-Doerr

This was one of the most riveting books I have read. The separate yet intertwined journey of Marie (a blind French girl) and Werner (an orphan who ends up in the German military) was spectacular. I felt such a range of emotions its hard to know where to being describing. I will admit that I do gravitate to historical fictions from time to time. Even though World War II stuff is sometimes hard to swallow, this book was truly amazing. What a whirlwind you get swept up in. Just read it for yourself.
