Hello, My Darlings! It’s the Blogtober Day 8, hope you are enjoying Blogtober as much as I am. Today I want to talk about my TBR for October (if someone doesn’t know TBR stands for To Be Read ). I’m on a reading slump this October, but still, I hope to read those books. That’s my goal, so let’s dive into it!
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except for a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
The first book in the Chasodiya series by Natalia Shcherba (The Time Key) tells about an ordinary girl, Vasilyna, who lives with her grandmother, who is her guardian. And now, she becomes aware that her father is the influential magician in Efflari, a world created by special temporary magic. Getting into the land of daisies, time benders, and fairies, Vasilinka is in the middle of a very dangerous game. Even her friends can’t understand who she really is. A naive girl who doesn’t even have an idea of her origin? The spy that her father sent to get the throne? And, perhaps, a time bender that can control time and to what extent can she go and save Eflar and Earth from the inevitable collision?
Italy, 1453. Seventeen-year-old Luca Vero is brilliant, gorgeous—and accused of heresy. Cast out of his religious order for using the new science to question old superstitious beliefs, Luca is recruited into a secret sect: The Order of the Dragon, commissioned by Pope Nicholas V to investigate evil and danger in its many forms, and strange occurrences across Europe, in this year—the end of days.
Isolde is a seventeen-year-old girl shut up in a nunnery so she can’t inherit any of her father’s estate. As the nuns walk in their sleep and see strange visions, Isolde is accused of witchcraft—and Luca is sent to investigate her, but finds himself plotting her escape.
Despite their vows, despite themselves, love grows between Luca and Isolde as they travel across Europe with their faithful companions, Freize, and Ishraq. The four young people encounter werewolves, alchemists, witches, and death-dancers as they head toward a real-life historical figure who holds the boundaries of Christendom and the secrets of the Order of the Dragon.
Why I’m excited to read it:
I found this book for cheap in my local outlet book store. The synopsis sounded interesting, the book cover looked amazing and after fliping some pages I saw those beautiful illustrations (maps, medieval paintings) on every second page. Hope the book is good!
Tell me in the comments, What is on your TBR list?
That’s it from me
