Hiiii everyone! How is everyone’s week going? Mine is going okay. Two of my most anticipated books came out yesterday and I am so bummed I can’t get them yet. MUST AVOID SPOILERS AT ALL COST! I am so scared lolz. Anyway! Time to update my reading progress!

What do you think you’ll read next?
I honestly loved everything I read this week!
A Game of Thrones was fantastic!
I received an eARC of The Lovely Reckless and omg it was beautiful! I love this book so much! It doens’t come out until October so my review won’t be up until then,but I definitely will be reading it again closer to its release. If you loved Pushing the Limits series by Katie McGarry (specifically Crash into You) then you’ll like this book.
Pippa of Lauramore was such a random buy. BookBub had emailed me the daily deals and I saw this book was free and had princes so I got it. I am such a sucker for a prince. So I read it after I finished GoT and it was so adorable! It wasn’t the most complex or original, but it was exactly what I needed to read. It had a BUNCH of princes but only one prince and an archer fought over my heart (the archer won). I really enjoyed myself loz 😉
As for The Mirror and the Maze…MY POOR BABY KHALID! HIS PAIN! This just got me super anxious to read The Rose and the Dagger!
Time is out of joint. The summer of peace and plenty, ten years long, is drawing to a close, and the harsh, chill winter approaches like an angry beast. Two great leaders—Lord Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon—who held sway over and age of enforced peace are dead…victims of royal treachery. Now, from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns, as pretenders to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms prepare to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.
As a prophecy of doom cuts across the sky—a comet the color of blood and flame—six factions struggle for control of a divided land. Eddard’s son Robb has declared himself King in the North. In the south, Joffrey, the heir apparent, rules in name only, victim of the scheming courtiers who teem over King’s Landing. Robert’s two brothers each seek their own dominion, while a disfavored house turns once more to conquest. And a continent away, an exiled queen, the Mother of Dragons, risks everything to lead her precious brood across a hard hot desert to win back the crown that is rightfully hers.
A Clash of Kings transports us into a magnificent, forgotten land of revelry and revenge, wizardry and wartime. It is a tale in which maidens cavort with madmen, brother plots against brother, and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside.
Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory may be measured in blood. And the spoils of victory may just go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel…and the coldest hearts. For when rulers clash, all of the land feels the tremors.
I didn’t want to pick this up because I wanted a break, but hey why not? I got the audiobook from Overdrive so…
It’s about time I finally pick this up. I am avoiding the trailer for the movie because I don’t want to be spoiled.
Have you read this book? Did you like it?
Until next time,
