Fictional Distractions of the Week #36

Welcome to Fictional Distractions of the Week. It is inspired by Book Journey's It's Monday! What are you reading? and Fiktshun's My Reading Pile and it will show you what I'm planning to read during the next week.


The books I plan to read this week:

Since I didn't get that much reading done last week, I have yet to finish Wings of Arian by Devri Walls, which I'm liking so far, but would definitely recommend for a younger audience. Looking forward to see how the story will develop though!
Goodreads Summary:
Kiora thought she had never heard a lie until she was sixteen. But she was wrong. Her entire existence was based on nothing but. She thought that evil did not exist. Lie. That magic was not real. Lie. And that the land of Meros was all there was. One more lie.

With Aleric telling her that evil is knocking on the door and that she is the only one who can stop them she has a choice to make. Refuse, or start the wildest most painful ride of her life.
She reluctantly dips her toe into her new existence of magic and threads, dragons and shapeshifters, and the person who wants to take control of it all: the evil Dralazar.

However, this journey was never meant to be hers alone. She will be accompanied by a Protector. To her disbelief, and utter irritation they name the hotheaded, stubborn, non -magical, (albeit gorgeous) Prince Emane. They will have to trust each other with their lives, but right now Kiora would settle for a non hostile conversation.

And now it comes down to this, If you had never heard a lie, would you know when you heard one? Is knowing good from evil innate? Kiora finds herself having to decide who lives and who dies on those very questions.

Just like I had already planned last week, I will then read Lonely Souls by Karice Bolton to review it for its blog tour (check back on July 10th), which sounds like such an amazing read.
Goodreads Summary:
It's two weeks before Triss turns 18, and her world is about to change into the most magical one imaginable as she readies herself to enter The Witch Avenue Order... that is until her mother's disappearance. Determined to find out what happened to her mother, Triss uncovers cryptic messages that lead her to the dark side of magic that she never wanted to believe existed. Forced on a journey that may not give her the answers she was hoping for, it's up to Triss not to fall victim to the realm of Lonely Souls.

The third (and probably last) read for this week will be A Witch in Love by Ruth Warburton, which is the second installment in the Winter trilogy. I've been so excited for this one ever since I read the first book and can't wait to see how Anna and Seth's story will continue.
Goodreads Summary:
Anna still finds it hard to believe that Seth loves her and has vowed to suppress her powers, no matter what.

But magic – like love – is uncontrollable. It spills out with terrible consequences, and soon, Anna is being hunted.

  1. Hm! I'm not so sure about this week, but.. I am reading The Assasin's Curse right now and don't actually know what comes next. Maybe The Alibi series?

  3. It's interesting that you said Wings of Arian is for a younger audience, because the cover reminds me of an adult romance novel. How curious! i hope you enjoy all your books this week.
