Brooklyn House Magician’s Manual | Kane Chronicles | Rick Riordan | Hardback

Greetings, initiate! Carter Kane, here. Congratulations on reaching Brooklyn House in one piece. This accomplishment signals that you’re descended from Ancient Egyptian royalty, and you have magic powers. But what good is power without knowing how to use it? That’s where this training manual comes in. Packed with quizzes, stories, and insights about Ancient Egyptian deities, creatures (the friendly and the deadly), the mysterious Duat, and more, this primer will prime those with the blood of the pharaohs to take their first steps down the path of the gods. You’ll hear from me, other magicians (including my sister, Sadie), and even a few of the gods themselves. But beware of tricks and surprises: anything can happen in the world of Egyptian magic.

Rachel Cotton is such an inspiration to me as a writer. She is only 16 and still in 6th form but she already has a published book. She is proof that dreams can come true. I have been struggling with confidence in my own writing this week, but she makes me think that maybe it is all worth it, and it is possible. So I needed to buy her book so I could read it and see what it’s like to have a writers dream come true.

We Are Young | Cat Clarke | 3rd May 2018

On the same night Evan’s mother marries local radio DJ ‘Breakfast Tim’, Evan’s brand-new step-brother Lewis is found unconscious and terribly injured, the only survivor of a horrific car crash.

A media furore erupts, with the finger of blame pointed firmly at stoner, loner Lewis. Everyone else seems to think the crash was drugs-related, but Evan isn’t buying it. With the help of her journalist father, Harry, she decides to find out what really happened that night.

As Evan delves deeper into the lives of the three teenagers who died in the crash, she uncovers some disturbing truths and a secret that threatens to tear her family – and the community – apart for ever…

I read a post about this book on ‘Queen of Contemporary‘ yesterday and it sounded like a good book so I thought I’d add it to my TBR.

Reign of the Fallen | Reign of the Fallen #1 | Sarah Glenn Marsh | Released January 23rd 2018

Odessa is one of Karthia’s master necromancers, catering to the kingdom’s ruling Dead. Whenever a noble dies, it’s Odessa’s job to raise them by retrieving their souls from a dreamy and dangerous shadow world called the Deadlands. But there is a cost to being raised–the Dead must remain shrouded, or risk transforming into zombie-like monsters known as Shades. If even a hint of flesh is exposed, the grotesque transformation will begin.

A dramatic uptick in Shade attacks raises suspicions and fears among Odessa’s necromancer community. Soon a crushing loss of one of their own reveals a disturbing conspiracy: someone is intentionally creating Shades by tearing shrouds from the Dead–and training them to attack. Odessa is faced with a terrifying question: What if her necromancer’s magic is the weapon that brings Karthia to its knees?

I spotted this book in the #UKYAChat discussion yesterday on Twitter. I missed the discussion itself but this book caught my eye and I added it to my TBR.

Winterspell | Winterspell #1 | Claire Legrand | September 30th 2014

The clock chimes midnight, a curse breaks, and a girl meets a prince…but what follows is not all sweetness and sugarplums.

New York City, 1899. Clara Stole, the mayor’s ever-proper daughter, leads a double life. Since her mother’s murder, she has secretly trained in self-defense with the mysterious Drosselmeyer.

Then, on Christmas Eve, disaster strikes.

Her home is destroyed, her father abducted—by beings distinctly not human. To find him, Clara journeys to the war-ravaged land of Cane. Her only companion is the dethroned prince Nicholas, bound by a wicked curse. If they’re to survive, Clara has no choice but to trust him, but his haunted eyes burn with secrets—and a need she can’t define. With the dangerous, seductive faery queen Anise hunting them, Clara soon realizes she won’t leave Cane unscathed—if she leaves at all.

Inspired by The Nutcracker, Winterspell is a dark, timeless fairy tale about love and war, longing and loneliness, and a girl who must learn to live without fear.

I just finished reading Claire Legrand’s book Furyborn which I received through Netgallery in exchange for an honest review. The review will be up soon, but I really loved this book so added a couple of her other books to my TBR.

Over twenty years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself.

Twenty years, two people, one day.

I keep hearing about this book, but I didn’t really take a good look at it until recently. But I really like the concept of it, it seems like a good read.

That’s all for this week. If you have read any of these books let me know what you think about them in the comments below. What’s on your TBR this week?

  1. The Kane Chronicles book sounds great, I love mythology but haven’t read a lot about Egyptian, for whatever reason. And I love how Riordan has popularized this stuff SO much! Also Reign of the Fallen and One Day both sound great.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. You should definitely read Kane Chronicles and Riordian’s other books. I love his books as much as I love Harry Potter and that’s saying something! So yeah, I definitely recommend them ☺️
