Escaping into My Books

I never know to say in these things. I guess that says something about me. I read a lot, write stories, and like books. I like a good debate. Nothing else is to say. :-)

Currently reading

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue
Mackenzi Lee

On a Plane for 10+ Hours Reading

Angelfall: 1 (Penryn and the End of Days) by Ee, Susan (2013) Paperback - Susan Mallery The Orphan Queen - Jodi Meadows

I just recently came back from a trip to Italy, where I was for 2 weeks on vacation.

 

Words won't do my trip justice, but words can describe the horror of the 3+ Hour first leg of the flight and the 10+ hour second leg! Where my TV refused to work...and I could not sleep.

 

So what to do? Read of course.

 

I finished one book and read half the the other one going. On my way back, the finished the second book.

 

I am still struggling to stay awake as I type ..so no big review is coming. But...

 

Angelfall: GREAT. I loved that it was so dark and kinda bleak. If anyone read the Bible in any detail they would have known that a bunch of Angels showing up to your world...was bad news. And this was no different. Angels come to Earth..proceed to destroy it, and the people left are struggling to survive and their new reality. Our heroine comes across an injured Angel...and after her sister is taken by some, basically takes him and his chopped off wings prisoner until he can take her to her sister to rescue her. It doesn't end well for them. And after I finished I was more than ready for books 2 and 3. Slow build romance and lots of action.

 

Orphan Queen: Magic is banned in this Kingdom because it is thought to bring about the Wraith an evil mist like creature that is slowly taking over the land. Our heroine is a Princess of one of these lands, whose parents are not convinced magic is the problem and refuse to sign a treaty banning it....and are subsequently killed and their kingdom taken over. Our heroine is now part of a band of refugees from that Kingdom whose goal it is to take back what they lost and get revenge. A lot more going on...revenge...suspense...adventure...secret identities....some well paced romance....all done very well.  Also a book 2 came out  recently and I enjoyed installment enough to continue the series.

 

So yeah...these book were my saviors on the plane. Once I was off the plane and in Italy though....no reading was done. LOL
