Hello! I’m here with my Weekly Reading TBR for you all! I have quite the ambitious TBR since I am going to be off of school for spring break. I have a homework or two to do during the week and that’s about it plus work. But I don’t have class so I am planning on binge reading as much as I can during this week break from classes!
So here is the list of physical books I have on my TBR to read:
Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves. I have the first book checked out from my library, and I am almost done with it so I plan on getting this done today and tomorrow and jump right into the sequel as well.
Summary: In a world where social prestige derives from a trifecta of blood, money, and magic, one girl has the ability to break the spell that holds the social order in place.
Sixteen-year-old Anna Arden is barred from society by a defect of blood. Though her family is part of the Luminate, powerful users of magic, she is Barren, unable to perform the simplest spells. Anna would do anything to belong. But her fate takes another course when, after inadvertently breaking her sister’s debutante spell—an important chance for a highborn young woman to show her prowess with magic—Anna finds herself exiled to her family’s once powerful but now crumbling native Hungary.
Her life might well be over.
In Hungary, Anna discovers that nothing is quite as it seems. Not the people around her, from her aloof cousin Noémi to the fierce and handsome Romani Gábor. Not the society she’s known all her life, for discontent with the Luminate is sweeping the land. And not her lack of magic. Isolated from the only world she cares about, Anna still can’t seem to stop herself from breaking spells.
As rebellion spreads across the region, Anna’s unique ability becomes the catalyst everyone is seeking. In the company of nobles, revolutionaries, and Romanies, Anna must choose: deny her unique power and cling to the life she’s always wanted, or embrace her ability and change that world forever.
I also have the sequel I plan on reading this week, which I have an ARC of so once I finish Blood Rose Rebellion I’ll be jumping right into this book! I won’t leave the summary for this book so save you from spoilers!
I also have a copy of Alex and Eliza that I plan on reading this week as well, because I have the ARC of the sequel that I received from Penguin for review for a future blog tour post!
I’m excited to read this one because it’s based on Alexander Hamilton and I love the musical Hamilton so I can’t wait to check it out!
Summary: 1777. Albany, New York.
As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters—Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival that of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball.
Still, she can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can’t believe his luck—as an orphan, and a bastard one at that—to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.
Also no idea why I have a picture of the audiobook but whatever….
And here is the sequel for Alex and Eliza! Love and War by Melissa de la Cruz! I’m excited for this one as well because of course Alexander Hamilton! Stay tuned for my blog tour post I’ll be posting in the future!
Summary: 1780. Albany, New York.
As the war for American Independence carries on, two newlyweds are settling into their new adventure: marriage. But the honeymoon’s over, and Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler are learning firsthand just how tricky wedded life can be. Alex is still General George Washington’s right-hand man and his attention these days is nothing if not divided–much like the colonies’ interests as the end of the Revolution draws near. Alex & Eliza’s relationship is tested further by lingering jealousies and family drama.
Here is my list of audiobooks I hope to get to this week:
The first is Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare! I am currently binging the series and I am having so much fun! It’s so good and I’m getting obsessed! I forgot how addicting this series could be! I plan on listening to the audiobook and I plan to keep doing that all week and maybe catching up on the series!
Won’t post the summary to save from spoilers!
I also plan on starting the Young Elites audiobook by Marie Lu. I have never read Legend though so I’m wondering if I have to read that first before reading this…let me know! I have no idea!
Summary: I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.
Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.
Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.
Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.
Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.
It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.
I also want to read Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare but I am not planning on finishing this book this week. I am planning on starting this book and finishing it next week. Since it’s such a massive book I will be taking a bit to read it. But this is what I plan on ending my week with! I’m obsessed!
No summary again because spoilers!
And that is my massive TBR for this week! I am so excited! I am so excited to be reading these and I can’t wait to see what I think of them all! Stay tuned for my upcoming reviews! I can’t wait for you to read them!
Let me know your thoughts in the comments and if you’ve read them, and what your planned TBR is this week!
