The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): These Vengeful Souls (These Vicious Masks #3) by Tarun Shanker & Kelly Zekas + 50/50 Friday
On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and 50/50 Friday is a new weekly link up and it is hosted by Carrie @ The Butterfly Reader and Laura @ Blue Eye Books. For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. Then, for 50/50 Friday, every week there's a new topic featuring two sides of the same coin - you share a book that suits each category and link up on the hosts blogs.
This week I'm spotlighting one of my current reads, These Vengeful Souls (These Vicious Masks #3) by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas. I absolutely love the first two books in this series and I'm both excited and scared to see how everything will turn out in this series finale - check out my reviews for book one and book two if you like. This series hooked me at the Jane Austen meets the X-Men concept and luckily it really delivers. Plus, if you like the Lady Helen series by Allison Goodman you'll probably like this series too.
The worst moment of my life was not the one in which one hundred and twenty-two people died to my selfishness and a monster's rage.

50/50 Friday: Favorite/ Least Favorite Read In May
Least Favorite - That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston - I tried with this audiobook, but I ended up DNF'ing this story at about 15%. Unfortunately, the premise sounded better than the excution.
Favorite - The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth #1) by N.K. Jemisin - This choice was especially difficult this month because I read a few five star books this month (Children of Blood and Bone and Godsgrave were marvelous), but this series starter completely blew me away. I have no idea why I put if off for so long, but I do know that I need to get to the sequel stat.
Have you read any of these books? What are you reading this weekend? As always thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
