Sundays in Bed With… #MyWeeklyWrapUp

We’re back with another Sundays in Bed With… meme! This meme dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve been you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!

I’ve spent very little time lounging in bed this Sunday but I’m planning to spend the rest of my Sunday in bed with The Storm Crow. I’m about 30% of the way through and I’m really enjoying it so far — gutted that I’ve waited so long to finally pick it up 🙄 I’m part of the blog tour for the second book which is coming up in two weeks, so this is perfect timing! I know this book was very hyped before it came out but I’m not actually sure that I remember what people thought of it once it came out… I hope that I continue to enjoy it as I make my way through!

First Lines Friday – 08 November

Yayaya, HAPPY FRIYAY, book lovers and friends 😍We’re back with another First Lines Friday! This is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines? Here are THE RULES:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

First lines:

“It was a storm.
Adrenaline ripped through my veins like lightning as I leaned close to the body of my crow, preparing to execute a dive. Iyla’s warm, steady heat kept me grounded, even hundreds of feet in the air.”

Do you recognize the book these first lines come from?

Okay, okay, calm yourself Loki, mate...

*drumroll please!*
