Book of the Week – 18

Hello gentle reader,

Did you know Thursday 7th March 2013 is World Book Day? This is a celebration of reading. Vouchers and free books will be given out to young readers, libraries and schools will hold events, and most importantly, the love of reading will be passed on to children and teens everywhere.

So today I’d like to share with you a couple of books that are coming out this week or the next. They are definitely books I’ll be reading on World Book Day. What will you be reading on Thursday?

Legacy of the Clockwork Key

Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey (out today!)

A teen girl unravels the mysteries of a secret society and their most dangerous invention in this adventure-swept romance set in Victorian London.


Poison by Bridget Zinn (out 12th March 2013)

YA High Fantasy

Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it.

Clockwork Princess

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare (out 19th March 2013)

YA Historical Fantasy – Steampunk

If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it? The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose. Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment.

Book of the Week – 1

Yesterday I used my World Book Day voucher to get a book for free and I chose The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. It came out in 2011 and I thought the cover was beautiful. Also the pitch is intriguing: an American girl relocates to a boarding school in London on the day a series of horrifying murders, reminiscent of the Jack The Ripper crimes, break out across the city.

What are you reading this week?

Welcome gentle reader…

Today is World Book Day and I figured it was the prefect day to start this blog on books and writing.

This blog will be about my readings, my writing, the publishing process and sometimes movies and music.

For now I am just going to ask you: what are you reading on World Book Day? I am currently immersed in a Fantasy series called “The Seven Realms” by Cinda Williams Chima. The first book is “The Demon King” and I am nearly at the end of it, actually hoping to finish it tonight.

What about you?
