BoB 14: What to Read Next
Today's Bout of Books challenge is "What to Read Next," hosted by Sarah Reads Too Much! For this, we must recommend three books that we have read this year; books that we feel other readers will enjoy.
1. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab: This has been my favorite book of the year so far! With multiple Londons set in separate dimensions, magic, great characters and an interesting plot, this book provided a really fun (and intense) reading experience.
2. The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons: If you're looking for a new, Dystopian read, then this book is for you! In this society, women are treated as "stock;" being captured, groomed and sold to the male population. All of this—coupled with a fierce/stubborn main character—help to make the book extremely interesting and difficult to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed it, from beginning to end.
3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: TWO fantasy recommendations from me? Unheard of! Once again, I found myself impressed by a book from the fantasy genre. This one has a female assassin, a kingdom ruled by a crazy tyrant, magic, mystery and a deadly competition. Definitely a must read if you're into action and choices that could be the difference between life and death.
