The Heart Forger (The Bone Witch #2) by Rin Chupeco

I’m 75% into this buddy read with Melanie from Meltotheany and enjoying every minute of it! This 2nd installment in the Bone Witch Trilogy takes off right from the very 1st page. All of our well loved characters are back & this being a book about necromancy, you can expect some of those to be from the land of the dead. There’s also a ton more action & battle in this book than its predecessor. Tea is still traveling with Bard the Chronicler & she is done with being in exile. Fully out to seek vengeance, Tea isn’t holding back no matter who comes at her! I can’t stop flipping pages, I NEED to know if Tea has fully gone dark cause that is the road she was on at the end of the 1st book & she’s still blazing a trail down into questionable paths. Also, Prince Kalen totally has the keys to my ❤ smh…*reddened cheeks* haha!

The Final Six by Alexandra Monir

I’m reading The Final Six in eGalley, trying to get back in the habit of reading more than one book at a time cause Le struggle is real haha! I was approved for a egalley from Harper & I’m about 30% into this story. It’s sort of post apocalyptic by way of most of Earth having been inundated with water. It’s legit Humanity vs. the Environment. Similar to Scott Reingten’s Nyxia, there’s a space exploration program & 24 young adults are chosen from every corner of the planet. Out of these 24, only 6 will be chosen to form the final team that will probably be sent to their deaths…just kidding…or am I? lol that’s typically how Sci-fi books go amiright? They’re going on a mission to colonize Jupiter’s Moon. It’s still too early to tell on this one but it’s definitely turning out to be more character driven & well ya know how I feel about these types of books, give me someone to love & my heart will bleed for them haha!

Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orisha #1) by Tomi Adeyemi

If it weren’t for the the fact that I’ve been anticipating The Heart Forger for over a year now, I’d probably be struggling with a book hangover. Children of Blood and Bone (my review here) is holding the crown for #1 book of 2018 & I honestly don’t see anything taking its place. There’s a reason why this book is making waves & I fully believe it’s well worth all the hype! Today I updated my review & added Tomi Adeyemi’s Quiz link where you can find out which Maji Clan you descend from *excited face* I took the test & included my results in my review (linked above).

Furyborn (Empirium #1) by Claire LeGrand

Last week I also finished a Furyborn buddy read & it was quite the EPIC journey with this book! Told from the perspective’s of two Queens 1,000 years apart. This is one of those that has very polarizing reading experiences but it was a hit in my corner. Yes there were some minor flaws but my rating/review is mostly based off of my personal enjoyment. Legrand took a complex plot/story line & served it up in a way that was easy to digest. I have a review going up this Friday 😉

Girls Burn Brighter by Shobhao Rao

I really stared at my spreadsheet long and hard trying to decide what I’d read next which is probably why this post is going up so late in the day *hides* I need a tiny bit of a Fantasy break before I plunge into some heavy ones next week. I decided it was time to start this one, Flatiron approved me for this galley & after reading some reviews, I started getting worried I wasn’t ready for this read. I know I’m going to love this book but I also know it’s quite heavy in the subject matter but I’m way overdue so *pulls out box of tissues*

Obsidio (The Illuminae Files #3) by Jay Kristoff

I’m trying to not throw shade at Barnes & Noble buuuuut…they crossed the line with my Obsidio Pre-order smh LOL! all of my pre-orders this month have been really delayed making for one sad Lilly. I’m really hoping to receive my copy no later than the end of this week cause I have every intention of binge reading in 1 maybe 2 sittings to keep with tradition haha! *fingers crossed*

What are you wonderful bookworms currently reading? planning to read next? any good ones? & if you’re reading any of the ones I mentioned, sound off in the comments down below! ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. I’m really interested in what you end up thinking of The Final Six. We have the same taste in books so I’ll wait for your review before deciding whether or not I want to pick it up! 😉 Also, why haven’t I already bought Children of Blood and Bone?! And I’ve been itching to pick up my ARC of Furyborn ever since I got it in the FairyLoot box but I’m trying to hold off until closer to its release date. We’ll see how much longer I can hold out though, haha! And Obsidio finally shipped from B&N today so I hopefully have it soon. I NEED IT IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!

    1. Now that I’m nearing the end of The Heart Forger, I’m picking up The Final Six more often lol. It’s my way of not wanting a good book to end 🤦🏻‍♀️ but ummm what are you waiting for with Children of Blood and Bone?!?! Gahhhh! It’s not one to be missed please read😩💓 Furyborn was good, it wasn’t flawless but THAT storyline was hard to put down. My copy of Obsidio is slated to arrive tomorrow but we’ll see cause UPS transferred it to the post office 😒😂 I’m off tomorrow so Ideally it would’ve been a great day to binge it. I hope we see our copies soon 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

      1. I’m having such terrible luck with my pre-orders, I really want to support the authors but I’m just not getting them til 1-2 weeks after 🤦🏻‍♀️ my copy of Children of Blood and Bone that I ordered last mth finally arrived. My Obsidio arrived at my moms today so I should see it by tonight. This was after a lengthy convo with customer service 😂 anyways! I can’t wait to see which books you haul this month, happy reading! 💜💜💜


  3. Ahhh soooo many great books in your post this week. I’m really eager to read Children of Blood and Bone (going to read your review right after this!) and The Final Six. I was on the fence about whether or not I wanted to read The Heart Forger so I am really happy to hear that you think it has more action – the slow pace of the first book was what had me questioning whether or not to continue with it.

    1. Thank you Kourtni! COBAB is a MUST! gahhh! I don’t know how I’m going to handle the wait til the next one, it’s going down as my top fave fantasy of all time (next to HP of course lol). The Heart Forger is def faster paced and much clearer on the POV’s. I’m really enjoying this one a ton & feel bad so many other bookworms that were meh on The Bone Witch, probably won’t give this one a shot. I’m currently buddy reading it and we are both OBSESSED! haha! hope you decide to give it a go 😉


      1. You’ve convinced me – definitely going to give The Heart Forger a try at some point!


    1. Thank you Raven! ❤ eeeeK Pacifica!!!! I caught onto this book so late & now it's at the top of my list of books to haul this month lol, I'm SOOOOO looking forward to your review! Happy reading 🙂


    1. I’m really looking forward to Girls Burn Brighter 💜 def up for a chat with you anytime ☺️ The Heart Forger scales back drastically on the detailed writing in terms of clothing and customs. It’s more focused on the after story…what happened to lead Tea to where she’s at now and omg Danielle! It’s so hard to put down! 😂😂😂


  4. Yay Children of Blood and Bone! I need to read it ASAP, but I’m also kind of waiting a little bit for the hype to calm a little. Hype and I don’t always mix well and I tend to not love really hyped books as much as everyone else. Like Illuminae….everyone loves that series, but I honestly couldn’t stand book one. I barely made it to the end, haha. Out of like I think 600 pages (I think that’s around how many pages it was), I only liked the last 50-100 pages of the book. I was so bored!! So yeahh…I need to wait a little bit for Children of Blood and Bone.


    1. I can understand that, I’ve done it with a. couple of other titles lol. COBAB is that 1 book that is totally worthy of the hype, hope you end up loving it as much as I did 🤞🏼💜& that’s too bad for Illuminae but it happens. I feel this way towards The Hazel Wood 😳😂

    1. I’ve been wondering where you’ve been! haha! I’m glad to see you back, I’m currently battling a bit of a blog slump myself but slowly winning the battle? 😂 COBAB was AMAZING & I hope you enjoy Furyborn as much as I did 💜


  5. You had such a lovely reading week, Lilly! So glad you loved COBAB, it sounds amazing and I only heard praise about it from everyone around the blogosphere 🙂 And Obsidio, I can’t wait to read it either, even if I am a bit scared hahaha 🙂 x


    1. Thanks Marie!💜💜💜 I’m actually going to start Obsidio tonight & have been trying to do all the things lol just so that I can have some ME time with his book smh. COBAB Was simply AMAZING & I cannot wait to see the characters come to life on the big screen 😆

      1. Ahahah, I get it, it’s the kind of book you need to… be alone and have time to read, too. It’s SO captivating haha, I couldn’t stop reading Illuminae. I hope you’ll love it 😀

  6. Oooooo you really have me itching to read The Heart Forger now! I KNEW it was going to be more action pack than the first book since The Bone Witch was all about building the world and introducing the characters. I may have to continue on sooner than I was anticipating 🙂

    AND I just received my copy of Children of Blood and Bone last week (a little birthday gift to myself) and I honestly cannot wait read it. I put off buying a copy until now because I’ve been so intimidated by all the hype…. BUT I just don’t think I can wait any longer!!!


    1. I think you’re going to LOVE The Heart Forger, it took ons much faster pace w/out sacrificing much of the beautiful writing. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts! I have a review coming soon, blogging duties fell off by the wayside these past 2 months. Children of Blood and Bone was EPIC! I hope you love it as much as I did 💜 Happy Birthday!!! 💜💜💜
