Good Morning World!
It’s the first 2021 hump day, and I hope you’re ready for some book recommendations! Let’s not waste any time and get right into things.
Every Wednesday I participate in a meme called WWW Wednesday.
This meme is a challenge where you simply share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
The Solon is ill. If he dies, Sofia will be forced not only to fight for her son’s right to rule, but will also face making good on a promise she made to the gods long ago. A promise she no longer wishes to fulfill.
As fate catapults her from joy to sorrow, from hope to despair, and from certainty to doubt, Sofia finds herself trapped between her two strongest desires.
In this final part of the Domna serial, the struggle for power grows to its deadliest proportions yet and the choices Sofia must make will tear her world apart.
Opinion so far:
This is the last book in the Domna series, and I’m having fun! I’m only a little over 20% of the way through since I am working on the last go-through of Reaper: Aftermath before creating my final manuscript, but so far it’s really captivating. Hoping to have this one done maybe by Friday or Saturday depending on how my Reaper edits go.
Keep your eyes peeled for the review!
When the Solon ignores an imminent threat, one woman will go to any extreme to save him, protect her son, and ensure the stability of their realm.
Sirius Verus believes his rule is secure, but when a plot is discovered to overthrow him, he refuses to accept that the person he trusts most is behind it. With an enemy army ready to march on the capital, Sirius’s days as Solon and his family’s lives are numbered.
Unwilling to let the threat fester, Sofia and Lucius take matters into their own hands, but this vicious retribution leaves Sirius fearful of making Lucius heir.
From the comfort of the Solonian Palace to the wilds of the Island of Naimo, Part Five of the Domna serial tests the limits of sibling rivalry, family loyalty, and the future of Osteria.
While my rating of this book was a smidgen lower than most of the others, this was my second favorite book to date in the series. I loved the strange foreign land they journey to, as well as the continued upheavals between Sofia and her enemies. Well worth a read!
Book Review: Domna, Part Five: The Forgotten Heir
Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
Not much has changed on my future TBR since last time.
After I finish the Domna series, Gigi and I will be doing a buddy read of Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. It’s my first Sanderson read, and I’ve been DYING to try his work out. Fingers crossed it’s as amazing as everyone says it is. We’ll be starting our read on Monday.
Following that is Past Legends by A.F. Stewart. I have nothing but high hopes for this book after reading Eternal Myths and loving every second of it.
Last but certainly not least is 7 Weeks in Hell by Iseult Murphy. The first book in the series was great, so I can’t wait to see what crazy new things are afoot.
If I manage to get through all of these books before end of January (which I kind of plan to), I’ll be picking up some more older purchases on my Kindle.
Wish me luck on my reading journey, and same to you, booksters!
That’s a Wrap!

I haven’t finished anything yet this year but I have started four different books. I’m currently reading Anne of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery, A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor, The Dead Zone by Stephen King and Legally Blind Luck by James J. Cudney. I’m really not all that far into any of them except for Anne I’m about halfway through it and I’ve been enjoying this series but it does have its faults.
Oh wow, quite the undertaking! Best of luck, and hopefully Anne doesnt disappoint.
I’m curious to hear what you think of Sanderson. I enjoy his work in general though I haven’t read Skyward. Have fun.
Great picks, happy reading! I’m in the middle of Wonderland by Stage, literary horror, slow burn and eerie!
Ooo I’m gonna check that out. Sounds really interesting. 🙂
