Synopsis:
June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector. It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.

But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?

Can’t-Wait Wednesday – December 6th

CWW

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings. The aim of the post is to select a book, usually upcoming, that you can’t wait to read and discuss it.

This week, I have chosen to feature Ice Kingdom by Tiana Warner.

Ice Kingdom is the third books in the Mermaids of Eriana Kwai series by Warner. In a book group I am apart of on Discord, there’s a group of us that have enjoyed the first two books. When the final book was finally announced, there was bit of a celebration. We were even happier when it was announced that we only had to wait a week since the book is being released this MONDAY! I have already planned my reading this week where as I should be able to start this book on Monday.

Arrow Recaps – November 2017

ARM

It’s the beginning of the month and that means it is time for another Monthly Recap! Here at KRF, our Monthly Recaps are simply titled Arrow Recaps.

Can you believe it? It’s already December, the end of the year. This year flew by rather quickly for me. However, we’re onto the Holidays, one of the best times of the year after all! May everyone enjoy their Holidays!

This month I have read a total of 5 books, although I may have finished a 6th book. This is another queued up post and that means I have wrote this up long before I left. The 6th book in question is Renegades. Before I left, I focused on reading and finishing the Legend series. While I was reading the series, Renegades came in the mail and I knew I would have to take it along with me on my trip. Along with the other books, I have read The Doomsday Code on my quest to finish the TimeRiders series, and Consider, a book about a parallel universe contacting our world to save us. However, I was not much of a fan for that book.

This months had was overall good and I enjoyed every single bit of reading while I read all of Lu’s book. Reading her books made reading very worth it this month. I hope she keeps writing because I want to keep reading her books.  Until then, let’s enjoy a merry December!

Can’t-Wait Wednesday – November 29th

CWW

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings. The aim of the post is to select a book, usually upcoming, that you can’t wait to read and discuss it.

This week, I have chosen to feature Dragon Bones by Lisa McMann.

Lisa McMann’s The Unwanteds was the first book in the original series and was one of the first books I read that made me the reader I am today. When it was announced there was going to be a sequel series, I was beyond ecstatic. Although I’m well over the middle grade age now, I will always be waiting for the next books in the series. After this book, there will be another 5 books for the series!  So clearly, I can’t even wait for the books that aren’t even written yet!
