Weekly Featured Book: The First Confessor

The First Confessor: The Legend of Magda Searus by [Terry Goodkind]

I really enjoyed reading this book very much. I just finished the book yesterday. The story was referenced numerous times and I was wanting to see how things actually went down. It answered so many things for me that I was confused on. It also shined light on how long some things had actually been going on.

Featured Book: The High Mountain Court

I got this book to support an author I discovered on TikTok. I am really enjoying this book so far. I’ll have to admit that am not far into it, but still. It as captured my attention from the very start. If you have a TikTok, I strongly suggest that you follow her. Her name there is akmulfordauthor. If anybody else is reading this currently or has read this, comment or message me. I’d love to talk about it!

Weekly Featured Book: Winter’s Rise

I read this during the weekend when I was hosting my readathon. It was so good! I can’t wait to read more books by this author. I really adored all of the characters in this book. Especially Nina and Ryker. Nina quickly became one of my book girlfriends. I fully recommend everybody checking this book out. The link is attached to the cover.

Weekly Featured Book: Balanced

This one might be slightly controversial, and I get it. I really do. I’d like to be heard on why I chose this before anybody makes massive judgments. Please.

First of all, I want to strongly state that I am very uncomfortable with the romance in this story. It’s not really something I agree with. However, I have a lot of respect with the realism of the story itself. The author may not be happy to hear my take on this, but it’s my opinion.

Personally, I got really strong vibes of manipulation and grooming in this story. That’s why I say I have a great respect for the realism of the book. Not once is the romance glamorized or made to look appealing. It’s raw and it’s ugly. The guy comes off as a total predator in my eyes.

Another real aspect I’d like to talk about is how some of these girls push themselves just to achieve and obtain their goals. It’s really frightening to see. It’s even more scary to see them being pushed past their breaking point. Our main character, Arianna, basically starved herself and obsessed with everything she put in her body. She was working out and training ten hours or more a day for six days a week. Not only did she not need to cut back on her diet, but really she should have added to it!

All in all, this could be turned into a Lifetime movie or television show. I’d probably watch it. I get that people are upset about the content of this book. I agree. I just ask that they maybe see it from a different point of view.

Weekly Featured Book: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

I read this book a long time ago and really enjoyed it. I never really read the rest of the series. I wish I had now. I’m hoping that soon I will have another chance to actually read them all. I will go back and reread this book when I do. I think they made a movie based on this book. I haven’t personally seen it. I would like to though.

Weekly Featured Book: Confessor

This is the conclusion to a part of this series. I have a very love hate relationship with this series. It’s still special to me and holds a very special place in my heart. I’ve been reading the series with my mom since the end of last year. I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for the characters in this series from here on.

Weekly Featured Book: Long Bright River

I read this book for my library’s book club. I really enjoyed it. It has some twists and turns that I really enjoyed. I fully plan on reading it again in the future. It’s a book I stumbled upon awhile back and have wanted to read since. I’m very glad that I had an excuse to read it recently. I am also very impressed with how real and raw it is.

Weekly Featured Book: Black Buck

This is one of those rare books that has had my attention from the very first sentence. I will admit that I’m not very far into the book, but I know I’ll love it. Usually it takes me several rereads of a book to fully get into it. Some less than others. Not that there’s anything wrong with the book itself. It’s just that I get easily distracted (ADHD) and I have to figure out where I was again. I think it’s why I like series better than standalones. Either way, I’m excited about this book!

Weekly Featured Book: What White People Can Do Next

This book has opened my eyes on so many things that I didn’t fully understand. It has also answered so many questions that I’ve been afraid to ask. The things I’d be afraid of being attacked for being curious about. It’s a very easy and quick read. I purposely took my time with it by reading a chapter a day just so I could let every bit of it absorb. It made reflecting on each chapter very easy for me. I fully recommend this book. It’s really helped me so much.

Weekly Featured Book: 1st To Die

I really love this series. I used to read every book the moment they came out as I could. I read the first twelve. I got involved with a lot of other reading and didn’t pay much attention to the series. I was shocked to discover how far behind on the series I’ve gotten. To date, there are now 21 books in the series. The 21st just released about two months ago. I pre-ordered it and it came to my house the day it was released. I will be catching up. It may take me awhile, but I’ll get there. This is one of my favorite series of all time!
