One girl can make a difference…

Moscow has burned nearly to the ground, leaving its people searching for answers – and someone to hold accountable. Vasya finds herself on her own, amid a rabid mob that calls for her death, blaming her witchery for their misfortune.

Then a vengeful demon returns, renewed and stronger than ever, determined to spread chaos in his wake and never be chained again. Enlisting the hateful priest Konstantin as his servant, turmoil plagues the Muscovites and the magical creatures alike, and all find their fates resting on the shoulders of Vasya.

With an uncertain destiny ahead of her, Vasya learns surprising truths of her past as she desperately tries to save Russia, Morozko, and the magical world she treasures. But she may not be able to save them all…

TTT: Books That Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Books That Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

 

This is an awesome topic! I missed last weeks topic because DNF books are just not my thing, and I wouldn’t have much to talk about. Plus, I had another post I wanted to put on my blog that day so… Yeah, that happened. But this topic, and in general, topics like this, I’m a fan of and I definitely want to share my book experiences with you guys!

There’s many I would love to talk about and for sure many I must be forgetting, but I will focus on 10 books. I have a mix of historical fiction books, contemporary books, fantasy and even classics. They are mostly set in different countries and I would love to see if you guys have read any of these books or are interested in any of the countries I mentioned!

Which books awaken the travel bug in you? To which countries?

TTT: Books That Take Place In Another Country

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Books That Take Place In Another Country

So for me, this topic is probably the easiest thing ever since I’m not from the US and half of the books I read about are set there. Because of that, I will feature books from 10 different countries. Some countries have more than others, but each country will have a min of 1 book and max of 5.

The books I will feature are books that I either already read or are on my TBR. If I’ve read them you can check my review by clicking on the cover.

Have you read any books set in other countries? What was your favorite?

Captura de ecrã 2017-12-15, às 12.59.40

Hey guys!

I felt awful about having to choose only 5 to 10… I read and loved so many books this year! But… I guess I can’t put every single one in here. But what I can do is a top 10 favorites released in 2017 and a top 5 favorites of other books I read this year but that were released previously!

So here are my favorite books of the year! The only things I did not include here were re-reads and manga books.
You can see all the books I read during the year here on my blog or here on Goodreads, as well as their respective reviews – for the majority of the books.Read More »

For a young woman in medieval Russia, the choices are stark: marriage or a life in a convent. Vasya
will choose a third way: magic…

The court of the Grand Prince of Moscow is plagued by power struggles and rumours of unrest. Meanwhile bandits roam the countryside, burning the villages and kidnapping its daughters. Setting out to defeat the raiders, the Prince and his trusted companion come across a young man riding a magnificent horse.

Only Sasha, a priest with a warrior’s training, recognises this ‘boy’ as his younger sister, thought to be dead or a witch by her village. But when Vasya proves herself in battle, riding with remarkable skill and inexplicable power, Sasha realises he must keep her secret as she may be the only way to save the city from threats both human and fantastical…
