Writing these little "immediate TBR's" helps me to stay on track with my reading, especially with my ARC's. So here we go.
Currently reading (and not liking at all)
The Hundredth Queen by Emily R King
I bought this on Amazon on a while, mostly because of the gorgeous cover )I never learn!).
I am at 50 percent mark and so far this turned out to be a nauseatingly predictable YA with every single cliche possible. I am thinking about def-ing it, it's just that bad.
Also I am not very keen on the "Indian religion and culture being changed ever so slightly to comprise a new religion for this book". In my opinion you should either create a completely different and new one for the book, or just follow the existent one to the tee.
Net Galley ARC's TBR
Life on the leash by Victoria Schade
Cora Bellamy is a woman who thrives on organization. She’s successfully run her own dog training business for years, perfectly content with her beloved rescue pitbull as the main man in her life. She’s given everything to her business, and her lack of social life (or slobber-free clothes) has been completely worth it.
I'm going to be honest - the main reason I want to read this book is this "perfectly content with her beloved rescue pitbull as the main man in her life". I am so sick and tired of pitbull breed prejudices so I'm hoping this book does this extremely loving, albeit a bit too energetic breed justice.
Although the cover does not have a pitbull on it, so that's already a reg flag. Will see, will see.
Fawkes by Nadine Brandes
Thomas Fawkes is turning to stone, and the only cure to the Stone Plague is to join his father’s plot to assassinate the king of England.
Silent wars leave the most carnage. The wars that are never declared, but are carried out in dark alleys with masks and hidden knives. Wars where color power alters the natural rhythm of 17th century London. And when the king calls for peace, no one listens until he finally calls for death.
I am in the mood for 17 century novels for some reason. when life was dim and every sneeze turned out to be a deadly disease. Also, the cover is beautiful.
