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!
It’s been a busy weekend here! We have family visiting and we’ve been out enjoying the lovely weather. Of course, that hasn’t left much time for reading. So now, as we wind down this Sunday, I’m stealing a little me-time to curl up with one of my current reads.
Keep reading to find out more about my Sunday read!
My Sunday Read Is…
The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake
I’ve been loving this dark academia read the more and more I get into it. There are a lot of characters to follow and some I already deeply dislike, but I’m loving this high stakes story! I’ve found that, at the moment, I’m running into that issue I sometimes have with multiple POV books. I find a few of the POVs way more interesting than the others, so when I get to a chapter from a character I don’t really care about, my reading tends to slow down. Or I catch myself skimming cause I want to get to someone else’s POV, heh. Overall, though, I’m loving the vibe of this book and I’m excited to continue!
The Alexandrian Society is a secret society of magical academicians, the best in the world. Their members are caretakers of lost knowledge from the greatest civilizations of antiquity. And those who earn a place among their number will secure a life of wealth, power, and prestige beyond their wildest dreams. Each decade, the world’s six most uniquely talented magicians are selected for initiation – and here are the chosen few…
– Libby Rhodes and Nicolás Ferrer de Varona: inseparable enemies, cosmologists who can control matter with their minds.
– Reina Mori: a naturalist who can speak the language of life itself.
– Parisa Kamali: a mind reader whose powers of seduction are unmatched.
– Tristan Caine: the son of a crime kingpin who can see the secrets of the universe.
– Callum Nova: an insanely rich pretty boy who could bring about the end of the world. He need only ask.
When the candidates are recruited by the mysterious Atlas Blakely, they are told they must spend one year together to qualify for initiation. During this time, they will be permitted access to the Society’s archives and judged on their contributions to arcane areas of knowledge. Five, they are told, will be initiated. One will be eliminated. If they can prove themselves to be the best, they will survive. Most of them.
