Every Thursday I’ll present a book in my queue that I haven’t gotten around to reading. It’s a good way to remind myself of what I have waiting for me. (Hosted by Books for Company.)
The Sweet Far Thing; Libba Bray
Remember that whole business about me not being sure whether I’d finish this series? I changed my mind. I already have the final book, after all, and you should never judge a series by its second book (it often suffers from middle child syndrome).
The Order – the mysterious group Gemma’s mother was once part of – is grappling for control of the realms, as is the Rakshana. Spence’s burned East Wing is being rebuilt, but why now? Gemma and her friends see Pippa, but she is not the same. And their friendship faces its gravest trial as Gemma must decide once and for all what role she is meant for.
Also! This will be the last of these I’ll do for a while, since I’m actually running out of books to discuss. Perhaps I’ll start a new meme next week. Wordless Wednesday is looking pretty good. That’ll get me working on my photography skills, too. Stay tuned!
