“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly meme hosted by Book Date. The folks at Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers have given #IMWAYR a new lens by focusing on books for kids & teens. Check out their blogs to see what they’re reading!
***What I Read Last Week***
- Beta read Perception (A Bridge of Starlight) by Angie Grigaliuas
- Yesterday or Long Ago (eARC) by Jenni Sauer
I can’t share a blurb or cover for this one (as I doesn’t have either yet, or at least not publicly) I can say that I’ve read (and immensely enjoyed!) both the Alpha and Beta versions of this one, and am so glad I did. I loved seeing a story unfold, and it’s a special honor and treat to get to see a story you love develop and grow into it’s finished form!
This book follows a few of the characters we briefly meet in the first two installments of The Purification Era series, and I loved getting to see some of the characters and the setting before the TPE series begins as this one occurs 12 years before, and also loved seeing more of the characters that will take up larger roles in TPE later on as well.
I also read Yesterday or Long Ago by Jenni Sauer. In it we see Prince Tov and Royal Advisor Gibbs from Rook Di Goo, along with a whole new cast of characters from Liosi, their home planet. This is a quick read, and also works well as a stand alone. I loved meeting the new characters, and really enjoyed both Tov and Gibbs friendship, along with the close bond of Rinity and Amya. I will say, I was slightly surprised that Amya’s brother, Bender, became an instant favorite of mine despite his brief role in the story, and I’m excited to see more of him, and hopefully the others as well, in later stories!
