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!
This is the first Sunday in a minute that I didn’t have to work and it has been glorious! Mostly because I slept for a good portion of the day, haha. Apparently, my body needed to catch up on some rest. Now that I’m feeling more restful, I’m definitely in the reading mood. I’ve picked a book from my various monthly TBRs that I’ve been wanting to read for awhile now. It’s been so hyped and I’m eager to see if I jump on the train, as well.
That being said, let me tell you more about it!
My Sunday Read Is…
The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart
I’m reading this book for the Magical Readathon because it has an animal companion. Thankfully, it’s also a book I’ve been wanting to read for a long time! I’m only a few chapters in, but I’m already falling in love with the world that Andrea Stewart is creating. I’m already rooting for both Lin, the daughter of the Emperor, and Jovis, a smuggler on a quest. And I’m definitely curious about the Tithing Festival and what sounds like a horrible tradition. In just a few short chapters, this book has sucked me in and I’m excited to continue!
Magic. Revolution. Identity.
The Emperor’s reign has lasted for decades, his mastery of bone shard magic powering the animal-like constructs that maintain law and order. But now his rule is failing, and revolution is sweeping across the Empire’s many islands.
Lin is the Emperor’s daughter and she spends her days trapped in a palace of locked doors and dark secrets. When her father refuses to recognise her as heir to the throne, she vows to prove her worth by mastering the forbidden art of bone shard magic.
Yet such power carries a great cost, and when the revolution reaches the gates of the palace, Lin must decide how far she is willing to go to claim her birthright – and save her people.
The Bone Shard Daughter is an unmissable fantasy debut – a captivating tale of magic, revolution and mystery, where a young woman’s sense of identity will make or break an empire.
