Happy Book Birthday To… (#19)

Happy Book Birthday To...

“Happy Book Birthday To…” is a feature I created in April 2015 to showcase books that have just been released. The purpose of the posts is to celebrate book releases and share my excitement for them. These posts won’t be made on a regular schedule (like once a week, once a month, etc). Instead, they will be made whenever a lot of books on my TBR are being released on one day and/or when a highly anticipated book from my TBR is released. To find the links to my previous Book Birthday posts, go here.

Furthermore

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Publisher: Dutton Books for Young Readers

Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy

Pages: 416

Synopsis: There are only three things that matter to twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it’s been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she’s about to embark on one to find the other.

But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she’ll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit–and with a liar by her side in a land where nothing is as it seems, it will take all of Alice’s wits (and every limb she’s got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father, Alice must first find herself–and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.

The Bronze Key

The Bronze Key

Authors: Holly Black & Cassandra Clare

Series: Magisterium #3

Publisher: Scholastic

Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy

Pages: 256

Synopsis: Magic can save you. Magic can kill you.

Students at the Magisterium are supposed to be safe. Under the watchful eyes of the mages, they are taught to use magic to bring order to a chaotic world.

But now the chaos is fighting back. Call, Tamara, and Aaron should be worrying about things like pop quizzes and magic contests. Instead, after the shocking death of one of their classmates, they must track down a sinister killer… and risk their own lives in the process.

As Call, Tamara, and Aaron discover, magic can only be as good as the person who wields it. In evil hands, it has the capacity to do immeasurable harm, unless it is stopped in time.

In this striking third book of Magisterium, bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare present us with a school where anything, good or evil, can happen, and the only way to unlock the truth is to risk everything to find it.

Book Traveling Thursdays #7

book-traveling-thursdays

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly meme hosted by Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. Each week there is a different theme and you must pick a book that goes along with that theme. Once you have a book in mind, your post will be centered around the different covers of that particular book. Firstly, you should explain why you think the book you picked goes with the theme. Then you will show the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover. For more information, check out the Goodreads group.

This week’s theme is a book that makes you think of traveling. At first, I didn’t know which book to pick for this theme. After going through my ‘read’ shelf on Goodreads, however, I decided to go with Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. In this book, the main character Yael is competing in a motorcycle race from Germania to Japan to win an audience with Hitler in order to assassinate him. Most of the book is spent on the road so I thought it fit well with the traveling theme!


Original Cover / My Country’s Cover

Wolf by Wolf

Favorite Cover

Wolf by Wolf

My favorite cover is definitely the original one! I feel like it really represents the story and it’s also super cool looking too!

Least Favorite Cover

Least favorite Wolf by Wolf cover

My least favorite cover is definitely this Portuguese one. I don’t like the colors or the style whatsoever! I appreciate that there are wolves on the cover but they just look really strange!
