Welcome to another #RockyRecommends. Every Friday, my big fluffy cat recommends a book that he loves and would love for you to read as well! This week, he is recommending #Murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil! I apologize for the subpar photo, Rocky was hiding under the bed and wouldn’t come out.
I was lucky enough to be nominated for The Unique Blogger Award by Brianna (briannathebookworm.com) who is one of the sweetest people ever! I love her blog, her posts are always so thoughtful and fun! Thank you again for nominating me!
I’m a slower reader, which means I can’t inhale books that way I want to. This leads to some books sitting on my shelf longer than I’d care to admit. These books include some popular series that everybody seems to love! I’ve decided to highlight some popular series I haven’t got to yet, but have an itch to start!
I’ve been feeling very blagh lately (and I couldn’t come up with a post idea). I put those two things together. These are some books that hugging them would make me feel better because of how much I love them, how pretty they are, or simply how huggable they are.
The rite has existed for as long as anyone can remember: When the king dies, his son the prince must venture out into the gray lands, slay a fierce dragon, and rescue a damsel to be his bride. This is the way things have always been. When Ama wakes in the arms of Prince Emory, she knows none of this. She has no memory of what came before she was captured by the dragon or what horrors she faced in its lair. She knows only this handsome young man, the story he tells of her rescue, and her destiny of sitting on a throne beside him. It’s all like a dream, like something from a fairy tale. As Ama follows Emory to the kingdom of Harding, however, she discovers that not all is as it seems. There is more to the legends of the dragons and the damsels than anyone knows, and the greatest threats may not be behind her, but around her, now, and closing in.
Damsel sounds like something amazing. The story sounds like it would be great twist on ‘damsels in distress’. And it is, but it’s a lot more than that too. Damsel was nothing like I expected.
