What’s on Your 2020 Reading List?

Standard

The Children of Virture and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi is the top book on my 2020 reading list. It’s been a while since I read Children of Blood and Bone so I decided to reread book one first.

Children of Blood and Bone is a fantasy book set in Africa, during a time when magic has vanished and the people who use to wield it, were either killed or became oppressed. Zélie, the book’s protagonist is a rebel. You learn this about her nature as soon as you open the book. She’s a fighter and when the opportunity arises to fight back against her oppressors and return magic back to her people Zélie decides to fight.

I’m not sure what else is on my list. I definitely want to check out other series that I started. I would love to read the second book in the book had zombies and is set during Civil War times. In this series young slave girls are zombie killers.

What I’m Reading

Standard

I am back to the I am Number Four series. The Fate of Ten has finally been released.  I can’t believe I missed the release date. So many books of my book list are series and I just end up reading more and more series so it’s difficult to keep up. Undivided by Neal Shusterman is also out. That book is part of the Unwind series. I think I left off at book three. Looks like I will be catching up on a lot of books.

Sometimes it’s difficult to remember what happened in the last book. I think you should all think about this especially if you are writing a series. Find a way to bring your reader back to the story. Maybe have your character reflect on what has happened to them. Anyway keep up with your writing and reading. I’ll post a review as soon as I finish the book. Happy Writing!
