I haven’t been great at keeping with my TBR books this past month. (Blame that on all the stress! Ack.) Currently Reading will act as my check-in, letting you guys know what I’m forever reading at the moment, and what I’m enjoying about it. Today, I’m sharing with you three books I’m juggling/reading
Iron Cast by Destiny Soria
Why did I want to read Iron Cast? This book has things I love reading about: Prohibition era, magic, and cons! I’m excited to see what kind of things Corinne and Ada finds out about the world they’re in.
What do I like about it so far? The friendship! I am livinnnnnnng for Ada and Corinne’s friendship. This is what I love seeing in books—friends supporting and having each other’s back despite arguments and danger. When I started reading Iron Cast, I was surprised (and pleased) about these characters and the Cast Iron people; it was totally unexpected and I needed to learn more.
This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills
Sloane becomes closest to Vera, a social-media star who lights up any room, and Gabe, Vera’s twin brother and the most serious person Sloane’s ever met. When a beloved painting by the twins’ late mother goes missing, Sloane takes on the responsibility of tracking it down, a journey that takes her across state lines—and ever deeper into the twins’ lives.
Why did I want to read This Adventure Ends? Everybody I know raved about This Adventure Ends and Emma Mills’s writing so I wanted to see if I’d love it as well. Also, I really hoped that there’s a lot of friendship.
What do I like about it so far? I love Sloane’s “don’t give a shit” attitude. I like that Vera welcomes Sloane into her close-knit of friends. I want more friendships! Don’t let me be disappointed!
Rebel Genius by Michael Dante DiMartino
Luckily, he finds safety in a secret studio where young artists and their Geniuses train in sacred geometry to channel their creative energies as weapons. But when a murderous artist goes after the three Sacred Tools–objects that would allow him to destroy the world and everyone in his path–Giacomo and his friends must risk their lives to stop him.
Why did I want to read Rebel Genius? As soon as I read “from the co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender” and that art is a heavy focus, I knew I needed Rebel Genius in my life.
What do I like about it so far? I am not really far into this book, but from what I’m reading, I am intrigued by the I appreciate that there are illustrations mixed in with the text; not a lot, but enough that makes me super intrigued.
