It’s time for another WWW Wednesday! This is a bookish meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words where bloggers answer the 3 Ws:

If you’d like to learn more about any of these books, click on the cover to be taken to the Goodreads page.
The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne: I’m going to be honest with you, readers. I bought this book because it was the Book of the Month Club’s Book of the Year in… 2017? And I had absolutely no clue what it was about. I’ve just started it today because it fit a prompt for the Magical Readathon (not too late to join!) and I’m already pretty intrigued!
(That’s right… two five star books in a row!)
Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko: UUUUGGGGHHH, this was SO GOOD! This is the story of a young girl raised in a magical land for a very dark purpose. It’s how she fights to overcome what people think of her and to try and cut the strings they are using to manipulate her. It’s a gorgeous coming-of-age tale built around West African folklore and mythology. Just… I gotta stop before I gush for this entire post about this one book! But, no worries, a full review is coming!
Bonds of Brass by Emily Skrutskie: I finished this book last night while laying in bed and, when I read the last page, I physically had to get up and move around because I was that hyped! I literally pumped my fist at one point. If a book can elicit a physical response from me, it just has to get five stars. This is a story of Ettian, an orphan of a brutal war who builds himself back up under the new empire that has been established by the Umbers. The Umbers decimated his people, but Ettian is now one of their top cadets. Until his roommate (and crush), Gal, almost gets murdered and he discovers a secret no one was supposed to know: Gal is the heir to the Umber empire. And things just get worse from there. Again… I need to stop myself before I gush for pages, but my review is coming soon!
The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly by Jamie Pacton: I’ve been dying to read this book since signing up to be a part of the Street Team! It has knights and kickass girls and Ren Faires… it sounds like it’s going to be amazing. The author was sweet enough to send me an e-ARC and I’m going to dive right in!
The Whisper Man by Alex North: This is another book I’m reading for the Magical Readathon. It’ll cover my Charms class, which is to read a book with a white cover. I’ve also been wanting to read this thriller for quite some time. I’ve heard it’s quite spooky and I am ready for it!
