THE BOOK I COMMITTED TO READ:
I finished Ordained just in time for the Ordained Blog Tour that runs from June 18 to July 3. You could read my post here. I haven't started reading Sputnik Sweetheart yet - probably because my brain is classifying it as a school-related book and the usual reaction to that is to put it off until the very last minute. It has been this way since... ever and the "grades-conscious" panic will kick-start around three days before the deadline. But don't you worry, given that I have some free... make that A LOT of free time this weekend, then I would - and should - read it and start on my review/reflection and presentation.
But to comply with some rules of the challenge, I would throw in Wildwing, by Emily Whitman, which has been in my TBR pile since July of last year. Actually, the reason I chose Wildwing for this week's TBRIC is because of a blog post at Small Review that I read last Thursday night which lists some historical fantasy books. I am curious what the blog author's talking about - the "fish out of water" setting is quite interesting to read about.
THE BOOK I COMMIT TO READ THIS WEEK:
When Addy is swept back in time, she couldn't be happier to leave her miserable life behind. Now she's mistaken for Lady Matilda, the pampered ward of the king. If Addy can play her part, she'll have glorious gowns, jewels, and something she's always longed for the respect and admiration of others. But then she meets Will, the falconer's son with sky blue eyes, who unsettles all her plans.
From shipwrecks to castle dungeons, from betrothals to hidden conspiracies, Addy finds herself in a world where she's not the only one with a dangerous secret. When she discovers the truth, Addy must take matters into her own hands. The stakes? Her chance at true love . . . and the life she's meant to live.
