My living room bookshelf contains exactly 107 books. Some are books I’ve read, and others I have yet to read (my book buying is out of control at this point…).
Each Sunday, I use a random number generator, and feature the book that corresponds to that number. See last week’s post here.
If you want to join in the fun and start your own Sunday Shelfie Feature, please do! Of course, there are many ways you could choose to feature a book, but I thought this would be fun, and should keep me going for awhile…
This week’s feature is number 20 on my shelf:
Title: Carve the Mark
Author: Veronica Roth
Publication date: January 17, 2017
My Rating: Unread
Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power—something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.
Akos is the son of a farmer and an oracle from the frozen nation-planet of Thuvhe. Protected by his unusual currentgift, Akos is generous in spirit, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive—no matter what the cost.
Then Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, and the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. Will they help each other to survive, or will they destroy one another?
Carve the Mark is Veronica Roth’s stunning portrayal of the power of friendship—and love—in a galaxy filled with unexpected gifts.
This book has been part of my TBR for a few months now. I received a free book box from the lovely Chapters Indigo, which featured The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth. Since I hadn’t read the first book, I obviously had to buy it! Based on the description, I think this will be a quick read that I will like, but probably not loooove. Let’s hope it proves me wrong (when I ever get around to reading it…)
(from page 20 – the number I pulled)
“And then the screen fixed next to the door flickered and switched off. All the lights in the room switched off, too, and the ones that glowed under the door, in the hallway. Whatever Riha had been about to say froze on her lips.”
Hope you’ve enjoyed this book feature. Have you read Carve the Mark? Did you like it?
