Music Friday {1} |1-5-18

I’ve decided to try and bring back my Music Fridays since I really enjoyed the brief time where I did them. This time instead of the post being dedicated to a single book I’m going to put my music on shuffle and the first 5 songs that come on I will assign a book to. Hopefully this works out well.

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.

 

 

 

December Wrap Up and January 2018 TBR

2017 is over! It feels like 2017 flew by and I managed to do so much and definitely read a lot. In December, my finals ended pretty early in the month so I had lots of time for reading and I think this was my best reading month for the year. I did decide to read a couple mangas because I realized I was really close to hitting 200 for the year and really wanted to reach that goal. I read an insane 36 books this month and I do not even know how that was possible.  Anyways let’s get into what I read in December.
