Waiting on Wednesday {4} | Iron Gold by Pierce Brown

It’s time for another Waiting on Wednesday! I haven’t done these in a long time but I really enjoyed them plus it’s a great way to talk about upcoming releases. So per usual I am tagging the amazing creator of this post/tag series breaking the spine.

This week’s spotlight is a book that I have been waiting for a long time. I am so excited that this book comes out soon. I loved the original Red Rising Trilogy so I cannot wait to finally read more from this incredible world.

synopsis

(From Goodreads)

They call him father, liberator, warlord, Reaper. But he feels a boy as he falls toward the pale blue planet, his armor red, his army vast, his heart heavy. It is the tenth year of war and the thirty-second of his life.

A decade ago, Darrow was the hero of the revolution he believed would break the chains of the Society. But the Rising has shattered everything: Instead of peace and freedom, it has brought endless war. Now he must risk everything he has fought for on one last desperate mission. Darrow still believes he can save everyone, but can he save himself?

And throughout the worlds, other destinies entwine with Darrow’s to change his fate forever:

A young Red girl flees tragedy in her refugee camp and achieves for herself a new life she could never have imagined.

An ex-soldier broken by grief is forced to steal the most valuable thing in the galaxy—or pay with his life.

And Lysander au Lune, the heir in exile to the sovereign, wanders the stars with his mentor, Cassius, haunted by the loss of the world that Darrow transformed, and dreaming of what will rise from its ashes.

Red Rising was the story of the end of one universe, and Iron Goldis the story of the creation of a new one. Witness the beginning of a stunning new saga of tragedy and triumph from masterly New York Times bestselling author Pierce Brown.

 

 

 

This is My Truth Now | Tag Tuesday

It’s Tuesday again and that means it’s time for another tag! I have been lucky enough to be tagged for a couple of tags recently so I’m slowly making my way through them. For this Tuesday I was tagged by @iamsurvivorblog, so thank you so much! What’s so cool about this week’s tag is that it is a book version of Truth or Dare which sounds insanely cool and a little scary. Was anyone else the person who always chose truth?

THE RULES: 

  • Create your own new post and call it “Tag: This-Is-My-Truth-Now” and be sure to include in your tags the words — without quotes — “ThisIsMyTruthNow Tag”
  • Be sure to mention the person who tagged you and maybe tell everyone something interesting about the person who tagged you.
  • Include a link to the original post (https://thisismytruthnow.com/2017/05/31/tag-this-is-my-truth-now/) mentioning the creator of this tag (James @ This is My Truth) so we can see how many people choose to play along.
  • Choose 12 bloggers to tag and include a link to their latest post, so others can check them out and meet new people.
  • Answer all 12 questions in The Challenge Questions section, but replace the 12th question with your own new one around telling the truth or revealing something interesting about yourself — you can leave the existing if you can’t think of something. (comment your answers to my question below before you change and post)
  • Make sure to add your own DARE to your tagged guests at the bottom of the post!
  • If you haven’t been tagged, but you want to play along, you can totally jump on in and post responses to the tag on your blog.
  • Include these rules when you copy/paste to your own post.

TRUTH: Answer the challenge questions as truthful as possible!

OR

DARE:  If you choose not to accept the tag, you have to follow through on whatever dare the person who tags you chooses.

The dare given to me was to reread a book that you hate twice this month. Obviously I’m choosing to do the tag because there is no way that I could read Fallen by Lauren Kate 2x this month. Okay now that we have the rules, let’s get started?
