Quarterly Wrap-up (January-March 2017)

Hi! I’ve been trying to blog for the whole week but to no success. I always end up sleeping in my bed whenever I got home. Thank goodness for weekend.

So here I am with a wrap-up for the books that I have read from January to March. I only read 4 books for 3 months. It’s quite shocking even in my part. And I’m behind my reading challenge in goodreads. On the other hand, I’m enjoying myself with reading and relaxing so I feel like it is not that bad that I’m not reading much lately.

And before I rumble other stuff in this wrap-up in an attempt to make it longer, I present to you the books that I finished in the past three months.

Rachel E. Carter’s The Black Mage Series New Covers

Hello, my fellow bookworms. Today I have some exciting news for you, especially if you are a fan of Rachel E. Carter.

 

If you are looking for a new fantasy series to read, I have a recommendation for you. It is The Black Mage Series by Rachel E. Carter which is a YA fantasy! There are four books in the series and the final book will come out this February! (February 7, 2017, to be exact.) 

The series has some magical elements, a rivalry (because you always have an enemy when we are talking about powers right?), and of course romance. This series is perfect for the fans of Throne of Glass, Falling Kingdoms, and Tamora Pierce. If you haven’t read or heard about this series, check out the synopsis of the first book:

Before the age of seventeen, the young men and women of Jerar are given a choice —pursue a trade or enroll in a trial year in one of the realm’s three war schools to study as a soldier, knight, or mage…

For fifteen-year-old Ryiah, the choice has always been easy. Become a mage and train in Combat, the most prestigious faction of magic.

Yet when she arrives, Ry finds herself competing against friend and foe for one of the exalted apprenticeships. Everyone is rooting for her to fail—first and foremost among them is Prince Darren, the school prodigy who has done nothing but make life miserable since she arrived.

Will she survive, or will her dream go down in flames?

Sounds great right?

But greater still is… Rachel is giving out the prequel novella (told in Prince Darren’s point-of-view) if you sign up for her newsletter for FREE! She also notifies readers of new releases, giveaways, and sales first! So make sure to sign up!

 


But other than recommending this series to you, I am also excited to show you the new covers for the series. According to the author, the rights for this series is given back to her and to celebrate that she is giving the whole series a makeover! Along with the release of the new covers for the series, I will also be revealing the cover for the last book, Last Stand.

“He’s a book full of footnotes brought to life. He’s a jacket made of elbow patches.”

SYNOPSIS: 

Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen.

That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.
