Where has Amber been?

Looks like my last post was in late May...erm, a lot has happened since then. I was looking at my bullet journal and I read 12 books in May which is pretty average for me. Then came June and I read a whopping two books.

I guess that's what happens when you have a tiny human growing inside of you. Baby Du Livre is due January 17, 2020 and they have consumed my every waking moment.

Waiting on Wednesday [#161]

Title: Sorcery of Thorns
Author: Margaret Rogerson
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Publication Date: June 4, 2019
All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power.
Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them.
As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she’s been taught—about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could never have imagined (goodreads).

Aladdin Book Tag

As a follow up to my Beauty and the Beast Book Tag, I've created a book tag for the upcoming Aladdin! The live-action remake comes out this Friday in the United States, and I have to admit, I'm a bit nervous; Aladdin was my favorite Disney movie from the renaissance years. 

Everyone is welcome to participate in the tag, I just ask that you link back to this original post.

Waiting on Wednesday [#160]

Title: Passion on Park Avenue (Central Park Pact #1)
Author: Lauren Layne
Publisher: Gallery Books
Publication Date: May 28. 2019

For as long as she can remember, Bronx-born Naomi Powell has had one goal: to prove her worth among the Upper East Side elite—the same people for which her mom worked as a housekeeper. Now, as the strongminded, sassy CEO of one of the biggest jewelry empires in the country, Naomi finally has exactly what she wants—but it’s going to take more than just the right address to make Manhattan’s upper class stop treating her like an outsider.
The worst offender is her new neighbor, Oliver Cunningham—the grown son of the very family Naomi’s mother used to work for. Oliver used to torment Naomi when they were children, and as a ridiculously attractive adult, he’s tormenting her in entirely different ways. Now they find themselves engaged in a battle-of-wills that will either consume or destroy them…(goodreads)
