Bride

So I found this from Jessica over by Reading with Jessica and I thought it would be interesting to do. This is currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words and it’s an awesome way to do an update on what you’re currently reading and what you’re planning to read next.

What are the Three R’s?

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finished reading?

Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s manoeuvrings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit – and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.

This book is so epic and so awesome that I can’t even form coherent explanations and descriptions to talk about it. I will have a review up for this and ACOMAF in the future so stay tuned for that! Like, I want more and more books about it, if Sarah J Maas can make as much books about this world as she can, I will be the happiest goose ever.

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

Have you guessed where this went? Haha, yes I’m marathoning and I’m almost done and it’s making me sad but there’s a lot more books that need my attention so I will be reading a new one before you could even blink. *whispers* my head hurts because I keep on losing sleep because I can’t stop reading.

Every juncture in Jon Kerstetter’s life has been marked by a crossing from one world into another: from civilian to doctor to soldier; between healing and waging war; and between compassion and hatred of the enemy. When an injury led to a stroke that ended his careers as a doctor and a soldier, he faced the most difficult crossing of all, a recovery that proved as shattering as war itself.

Crossings is a memoir of an improbable, powerfully drawn life, one that began in poverty on the Oneida Reservation in Wisconsin but grew by force of will to encompass a remarkable medical practice. Trained as an emergency physician, Kerstetter’s thirst for intensity led him to volunteer in war-torn Rwanda, Kosovo, and Bosnia, and to join the Army National Guard. His three tours in the Iraq War marked the height of the American struggle there. The story of his work in theater, which involved everything from saving soldiers’ lives to organizing the joint U.S.–Iraqi forensics team tasked with identifying the bodies of Saddam Hussein’s sons, is a bracing, unprecedented evocation of a doctor’s life at war.

But war was only the start of Kerstetter’s struggle. The stroke he suffered upon returning from Iraq led to serious cognitive and physical disabilities. His years-long recovery, impeded by near-unbearable pain and complicated by PTSD, meant overcoming the perceived limits of his body and mind and re‑‑ imagining his own capacity for renewal and change. It led him not only to writing as a vocation but to a deeper understanding of how healing means accepting a new identity, and how that acceptance must be fought for with as much tenacity as any battlefield victory.

This is technically a review book that I have to have finished already but still haven’t *struggles* so I am going to read this next. I also want this to be next because the Court of Thorns and Roses series had me go through so many emotional rollercoasters and I’m exhausted, and a non-fiction seemed like the best option. Killing two birds with one stone, oh yeaah.


 

So that’s it for this week! Have you participated in this too? Please put down links in the comments so I can read it! I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week 🙂

 

Lots of love,

    Oh my, I could talk about the ACOTAR trilogy for ages! It’s one of my favourite trilogies so far and I remember having to wait for ACOWAR- imagine that, after the freaking cliffhanger at the end of ACOMAF!!!! I couldn’t, really, I was done for. Important information: Rhysand has become my fave character ever, probably? Great post!
