Hey, sweet peas!
I’m not quite sure what to say about anything today. I’m just kinda groggy and tired. But at least the cold I’ve been dragging around (or has been dragging around me?) is pretty much gone now, so that’s a start.
I think I should just start with this week’s WWW Wednesday, which is hosted by Sam.
The three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
What did I reacently finish reading?
I just finished “Del Toro Moon” by Darby Karchut yesterday. I started on Monday and binged the rest on Tuesday. (I only had to put it down once because I got kinda emotional.) I will still write a review about this but let me say, despite some small faults, I really liked it.
What am I currently reading?
I’m still reading “Death in the Clouds” by Agatha Christie. I know I’ve been at it for a while but I tend not to rush too much with those books.
I’m also reading “Rumblestar” by Abi Elphinstone at the moment. I just finished the kinda-prequel “Everdark” last week and I’m curious how that full-blown book will come along.
What will I be reading next?
I’m not quite sure about that. But it might be either:
Seventeen-year-old Aderyn (“Ryn”) only cares about two things: her family, and her family’s graveyard. And right now, both are in dire straits. Since the death of their parents, Ryn and her siblings have been scraping together a meager existence as gravediggers in the remote village of Colbren, which sits at the foot of a harsh and deadly mountain range that was once home to the fae. The problem with being a gravedigger in Colbren, though, is that the dead don’t always stay dead. The risen corpses are known as “bone houses,” and legend says that they’re the result of a decades-old curse. When Ellis, an apprentice mapmaker with a mysterious past, arrives in town, the bone houses attack with new ferocity. What is it that draws them near? And more importantly, how can they be stopped for good? Together, Ellis and Ryn embark on a journey that will take them deep into the heart of the mountains, where they will have to face both the curse and the long-hidden truths about themselves.
Zane has always enjoyed exploring the dormant volcano near his home in New Mexico, even though hiking it is challenging. He’d much rather hang out there with his dog, Rosie, than go to middle school, where kids call him Sir Limps a Lot, McGimpster, or Uno — for his one good leg. What Zane doesn’t know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world and he is at the center of a powerful prophecy. A new girl at school, Brooks, informs him that he’s destined to release an evil god from the ancient Maya relic he is imprisoned in — unless she can find and remove it first. Together they return to the volcano, where all kinds of crazy happens. Brooks turns into a hawk, a demon attacks them in a cave, and Rosie gives her all while trying to protect Zane. When Zane decides to save his dog no matter the cost, he is thrust into an adventure full of surprising discoveries, dangerous secrets, and an all-out war between the gods, one of whom happens to be his father. To survive, Zane will have to become the Storm Runner. But how can he run when he can’t even walk well without a cane?
