Book Challenge of the Month! Mar. 2019

Happy March, everyone! Spring is almost here! This month’s challenge is…

A book you chose because of the cover.

My book is The Children of Blood and Bone.

I mean is that cover not gorgeous?! I saw it in Target and I just had to have it. I didn’t have the money but I was getting paid the next day so I told myself I would come back and if it was still there I would get it. And it was, so I did. It just drew me in. Here’s a little Goodreads description for you:

They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.

Now we rise.

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.

Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.

My sequel book for the month is The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris. The first book in the series, Red Dragon, is one of the few books that actually gave me nightmares. I’ve seen the movie but I’m very excited to read the book.

My classic book for the month is The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells. Another classic that I hope is not boring.

And my for fun book of the month is Looking For Alaska by John Green. The Fault in Our Stars is one of my all time favorite books, it made me cry and cry and cry so I’m hoping this book is just as good. I don’t know if it’s the tear jerking kind but I do hope I love it.

What will your challenge book be?

    Woah! That’s a gripping front cover. Love the blurb as well.
    Four covers that I’ve almost bought just because of the mysterious covers are Sarah Perry’s ‘Melmoth’, Bridget Collins’ ‘The Binding’, Brian Carter’s ‘Black Fox Running’ and Caroline Lea’s ‘The Glass Woman’. Something about the silhouettes have really vivid colours 🙂

        I’m just a simple boy who likes pretty colours, so the stories themselves might actually be boring 😛

    Looking For Alaska is definitely the tearjerker type. Man, I love that one but it made me start smoking cigarettes when I was teenager. 😛
