T.G.I.F. Weekly 17



T . G. I. F.  Weekly  

For those of you who don't know, TGIF Weekly is a Friday post where I share 3 books I have sitting next to me that I want to read soon.  My goal was to always work on at least 1 of these books before the next Friday. 
Now YOU decide what book I read first.  Leave a comment saying which book you think I should focus on and next TGIF post I will share a short blurb about what I think of the book. The blurb will only be for the book most voted for in comments.  Plus I will work on pushing the review out that much sooner.    *Please note that if a book is not read one week in may be on the list the following week*

Last weeks top vote:


Shadows of the Realm


An interesting start for this book.  I was hoping to have more time to get into this book a bit more but a library book came up due that I thought I would be able to renew so my week was off a bit.  Sorry.  The prologue gets you right into the thick of things but then it seems to taper down.  LOTS of characters so far which is a bit to take in right from the first few chapters.  The walking, talking, throne lounging, hugging dragons so far confuse me a bit from the one in the prologue and the cover.  the foundation seems like it is going to make for a good epic fantasy however.  I look forward to continuing it.

 
The Books for the coming week:

They become friends and Tsukune is ready for a happy school life with her, until he finds out that if a human is found on the school grounds, he or she should be killed.

Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X, #1)  
In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile after failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims. But Justin is given a second chance when Mae Koskinen comes to bring him back to the Republic of United North America (RUNA). Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military’s most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills.

When Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders, they soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger. As their investigation races forward, unknown enemies and powers greater than they can imagine are gathering in the shadows, ready to reclaim the world in which humans are merely game pieces on their board.

Gameboard of the Gods, the first installment of Richelle Mead’s Age of X series, will have all the elements that have made her YA Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series such megasuccesses: sexy, irresistible characters; romantic and mythological intrigue; and relentless action and suspense.

For this, he's been assigned escorts that include both a dangerous immortal as well as Michael's all-too-human friends. And with that mix of personalities, this is going to be a road trip from hell...

  1. I think Gameboard of the Gods. I've heard good things. I'm reading Fire With Fire by Jenny Han and Vivian Siobhan right now and am loving it. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I followed back via Bloglovin. :)
    Happy reading!

  2. Hi, I think this would be a great meme ! I vote that you should read Richelle Meads Gameboard of the Gods because it isn't a series like the morganville series is . I would also love to read it but I don't own a copy ...yet however.

    Also I might make a post with 3 of my own titles .

    Currently I'm reading
    1. The War of the Fae series book One : The Changelings by Elle Casey
    2. Kick Fat In The Nuts by T.C Hale
    3. Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep
