It’s hard to believe that we’re already almost a third of the way through 2017 when it still feels like it was only January 1st last week. So, here we go again, here is April’s Cabeswater Reading Challenge prompt:
It only feels like yesterday we were counting down to 2017 and suddenly we’re already at the end of January. Which means, of course, it’s time to announce the February prompt for the Cabeswater Reading Challenge!
What a way to start the year
Title: Six of Crows
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Synopsis: Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager
A runaway with a privileged past
A spy known as the Wraith
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes
Kaz’s crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
In a matter of days, we will be saying adios to 2016 and hellooooo to 2017. Now we know most people abandon their new year’s resolutions by the time February comes along, but we’re gonna try to hold out (until March, at least– kidding!).
We have come across a number of wonderful reads in 2016 and we can’t wait to find out what other books we’ll discover in 2017. However, we notice that we tend to get caught up in the YA madness that we might have missed out on gems in other genres. That is why, as a resolution in the new year of 2017, we are breaking out of our comfort zones with the Cabeswater Reading Challenge!
Is the spirit of the holiday season getting to you yet? Are you already thinking that this December could not possibly get any better after seeing the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer? Well, we are proving you wrong.
