Sundays in Bed With… is a meme that dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!
I’m bringing in a new bookish meme today! Why? Well, a couple of reasons. I’ve seen multiple bloggers do this meme, though I first noticed it over at Dini @ Dini Panda Reads‘s blog (check her out if you haven’t already!!). I’ve wanted to jump on the bandwagon for awhile and there’s no time like the present!
Also, I have a killer headache today and, because I spent last night playing D&D and didn’t get a chance to schedule a post, I need something low effort, haha 😅 That being said, this meme is pretty apt today because I have literally been curled up in bed all day, reading when the headache is a little less severe.
So what has captured my interest this Sunday? Keep reading to find out!
My Sunday Read Is…
The Carnival of Ash by Tom Beckerlegge
That’s right, I’ve finally dug into this thick tome. Let’s hope it truly captures my attention because I’m meant to have my blog tour post up on the 3rd, heh. Time management was not my friend in April, though I’m gonna give myself some grace as our family had a particularly rough couple of weeks there at the end of last month. Still, I’m incredibly intrigued by this book and am eager to get more into it! So far, I’m liking what I’m reading. It’s a bit different from what I was imagining, but I’m definitely finding it interesting. Also, I adore this cover 😍 Keep reading below for the full Goodreads synopsis!
An extravagant, lyrical fantasy about a city of poets and librarians. A city that never was.
Cadenza is the City of Words, a city run by poets, its skyline dominated by the steepled towers of its libraries, its heart beating to the stamp and thrum of the printing presses in the Printing Quarter.
Carlo Mazzoni, a young wordsmith arrives at the city gates intent on making his name as the bells ring out with the news of the death of the city’s poet-leader. Instead, he finds himself embroiled with the intrigues of a city in turmoil, the looming prospect of war with their rival Venice ever-present. A war that threatens not only to destroy Cadenza but remove it from history altogether…
