Enchantèe by Gita Trelease
Current Status: 10% (ebook ARC)
I’m happy that this one has caught my interest right off the bat. I heard good things about it being similar to Caraval and I really liked that book so I’m looking forward to something with the same feel. I really enjoy all of the French terms and phrases throughout the writing as well. Being a French minor in college it’s always fun to brush up on all of the little sayings and see them used naturally in the writing. I like the setting so far as well set in Paris, at the time of Marie Antoinette when hot air balloons were just being invented. I have a feeling this is going to be a really fun read.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
Current Status: pg. 387 of 387
So per suggestion, strong suggestion, from my bestest book buddy Scrill, I picked up one of her all time favorites The Hating Game and I fell instantly in love. I devoured this book in 24 hours and I am so in love with these characters and the writing. I was laughing and crying and my heart was about to burst out of my chest from how hard it was beating. I got so emotional over the relationship between these fantastic characters and I’m pretty sure I have now a new book boyfriend to clearly ruin me for any realistic expectations in my own real love life. I don’t think they make em quite like they do in books!
The Light Between Worlds by Laura E. Weymouth
Current Status: pg. 40 of 320
Still in the beginning stages of this book but so far I am liking it. I like the setting and it almost is reminding me of Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe with the siblings who have a secret of another world that they all hold while they try to go about their normal lives. I don’t know much on how it all works yet because I am still so far in the beginning but I have an inkling that this is going to be quite the adventure.
Have you read any of these books? What are your thoughts? Reading anything exceptionally awesome right now? I’d love to know!
