This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
For this week’s pick I decided to see if I had any favorite authors whose books, either backlist or newer, I haven’t read yet. I am glad to say I only have a few on my list. I think I held off on reading this one until we were closer to the sequel coming out, which doesn’t happen until March. I am kind of excited about the new series coming out on Netflix of her books, but I am a bit worried they will ruin it.
Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, the young king must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.
Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.
I will probably wait till we are a bit closer to March before reading it, that way it will be fresh in my mind. I do so enjoy this author’s work. And Nikolai is one of my favorite characters from this world, so I was super excited when he got his own book. I am sure it will be awesome, just like him.
What about you? Are there books by your favorite author that you haven’t read yet?
