To Finn Voy, magic is two things: a knife to hold under the chin of anyone who crosses her…and a disguise she shrugs on as easily as others pull on cloaks. As a talented faceshifter, it’s been years since Finn has seen her own face, and that’s exactly how she likes it. But when Finn gets caught by a powerful mobster, she’s forced into an impossible mission: steal a legendary treasure from Castallan’s royal palace or be stripped of her magic forever. After the murder of his older brother, Prince Alfehr is first in line for the Castallan throne. But Alfie can’t help but feel that he will never live up to his brother’s legacy. Riddled with grief, Alfie is obsessed with finding a way to bring his brother back, even if it means dabbling in forbidden magic. But when Finn and Alfie’s fates collide, they accidentally unlock a terrible, ancient power—which, if not contained, will devour the world. And with Castallan’s fate in their hands, Alfie and Finn must race to vanquish what they have unleashed, even if it means facing the deepest darkness in their pasts.
I wanted to read this because there were faceshifters, a girl who wielded magic like a knife, and a boy and girl who have different views of the world who are thrust together. I had seen people talking about it and how much they loved it, so I wanted to give it a try. Trigger warnings: abusive parent, alcoholism, gore, violence
Well, I’m not sure how it’s the new year already. Though, there are a lot of books I want to get to this year! A lot of amazing ones are coming out and there are some already released ones that I would like to get to! I’m a little bit of a big shrug when it comes to what I want to read this month. Though I do have a little bit of an idea!
Besides reading books, I really enjoying taking pictures of them. I would consider myself an amateur photographer, buts its definitely more of a hobby than anything else. It’s a way to express my love of books that allows me to be behind the camera (if I choose) and create something that I consider beautiful. So, for a little bit of a change of pace, I decided to show my process of taking pictures and show off a few of them!
I loved Ace Of Shades. It was definitely one of my favorite books of this year so far and I’m sure that standing will stay. So, I was absolutely thrilled when I learned that her launch party was going to be near me! There was even a few other people I going that I really wanted to meet/say hi to.
I love A Wrinkle In Time even though I could never, no matter how many times I tried, get through the book. Nevertheless, I loved the old movie, so I was super duper excited when I heard that a remake was coming!
