Friday Reads: January 4

Hey y’all! Today I wanted to talk about the books that I managed to finish this week and what I am currently reading for this first week of January.

What I finished:

The Gray Wolf Throne by Cinda Williams Chima (Book 3 in the Seven Realms Series) – I am absolutely in love with this series. I only have one book left and I don’t want it to be over. The political intrigue is just so good and the romance is just breaking my heart. I will be doing a full review of this book series once I read the final book The Crimson Crown.

What I’m currently reading:

Where the Crawdads Sing

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens – I have been listening to this on audio since the beginning of last week and I’m slowly making my way through this book. It’s a dual timeline narrative one being when the main character Kya is a little girl and another when she is an adult. The writing and imagery in this book is amazing and the story has me hooked. I can’t wait to finish this story and see what happens.

Mere Christianity

Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis – This is a collection of radio talks that C.S. Lewis gave during WWII about human nature and the basics of being a Christian. I’m completely enthralled by this book and hope to finish it this weekend. I have this out on ebook from the library but I’m gonna be picking up a physical copy soon.

Our Voices, Our Stories Edited by Amy Reed – This is a collection of 21 essays by popular YA authors discussing feminism, the immigrant experience and other political issues. I am enjoying this but I am only reading an essay or two here and there. I hope to read at least 5 more essays over the weekend.

What I Plan to Read:

If you have seen my previous post with my January TBR and Bout of Books TBR pile or my Late-a-thon TBR I plan to pick up a few books off of there. The ones that are currently sticking out to me are: Kiss Me in Paris by Catherine Rider, Jade City by Fonda Lee, and Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao (which I have out from the library). I plan to mood read really for Bout of Books so we shall see in next week’s Friday Reads.
