Saturday Morning Wrap Up: 4/18

Since I took a break all last weekend and didn’t post a wrap up last week, I’ll be covering the past two weeks in this post!

What am I reading?

The Burning Sea (The Furyck Saga #2) by A.E. Rayne

I’m really excited to continue with the Furyck Saga! I enjoyed the first book so much and I’m really glad it looks like the whole series is on Kindle Unlimited so I can keep reading it. I’m not very far into the book, but already some new antagonists have been introduced and I’m excited to finally learn what happened in the last book’s cliffhanger!

Burying the Honeysuckle Girls by Emily Carpenter

This book hit me hard the first time I picked it up. I have a lot of sympathy and outrage on behalf of the main character, Althea, and the book is emotional for me thus far. It’s about Althea, a struggling rehabilitated drug addict, trying to unravel what happened to her mother who died on her thirtieth birthday. According to her father, struck down with Alzheimer’s, every woman in her family has suffered a break down at thirty years old. She’s to fully convinced that it’s a simple disorder that happens to act at the exact same age in every woman, and I’ll be honest I’m right there with her in not believing it.

A Captive of Wing and Feather (Beyond the Four Kingdoms #5) by Melanie Cellier

Since this series is available on Kindle Unlimited, I’ve been working my way through it. This one is, as the title likely betrays, a retelling of Swan Lake.

Angels of the Universe by Einar Már Guðmundsson

I uh….still have no idea what this book is all about. But my husband is hunting down the movie adaptation (with English subtitles) so we’ll see if after I finish both of them I have a better idea!

The Mermaid and the Bear by Ailish Sinclair

This is an adorable little story set in Scotland. the characters are sweet, the reading easy enough, and so far it’s like reading a fairy tale (which is exactly as advertised). I’m not very far in, but it’s on my reading agenda for today so we’ll try and rectify that!

These Rebel Waves (Stream Raiders #1) by Sara Raasch

This book and I got off to a rocky start, I’ll admit. I had some critiques on the way the worldbuilding was sort of all at once. However, I have since been sucked in by the story and I’m nearly finished with this one!

The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold

I was so excited when this book showed up in the Kindle Unlimited library. So far, I’m loving the book and I’m only one woman in. Rubenhold really does look into everything possible to unravel the lives of the five women best known for being victims of the infamous Jack the Ripper.

What’s next?

I’m chugging away at quite a few books right now, and I’m still trying to kick myself back into Bookstagram habits. It’s hard when you only have three books to photograph, though… Anyways, have a wonderful week book bees! Stay healthy and stay safe!
