Ugh I miss real summers. I miss long days of field hockey training and pre-studying for fall classes. I miss late nights with friends and days spent by the pool. I miss unlimited reading time. If you can, put off being a read adult for as long as possible. These days, my summers are filled with meetings and workshops and entirely too much work! I feel like I end up reading LESS during the summer, because somehow work is always so crazy during the summer! I’ve been reading the Smoke Thieves (which is great, by the way) for over a week now, and I’m still less than half way through it because of work and working out and commitments. I need a vacation where all I’m doing is reading!
Ace of Shades 4/5 Stars
Earlier this month, I finished Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody and it was so good! I think the whole rival gangs and ousted monarchy things are great and I love the whole Vegas feel that the city of New Reynes was giving off. This was one of those books that I hadn’t read or seen too many actual reviews of, but I had seen the cover almost everywhere, so I pretty much just picked it up because of that. I think the premise of you last names being your dominant and non-dominant abilities is super cool. I also really loved the interplay between Levi and Enne. And the plot twist in the middle? Man, even though I was expecting it, I still really, really liked it! I cannot wait to read the next one!
Have you read Ace of Shades yet? What did you think about it?
