What’s that you say? I missed a day? What? No, you MUST be mistaken. *nervous laughter* I definitely wasn’t distracted by the loveliness that is Sebastian Stan and re-watching Captain America: Civil War multiple times.
As much as I love to pick up a physical book and flip through the pages, smell the paper and ink and trace the title and the illustrations … okay, I really do love physical books. But sometimes, it’s nice (and cheaper) to buy an e-book from Amazon or borrow a digital novel from my local library.
Today’s prompt is e-books, which lets me go back through the digital novels I’ve been collecting over the last two years. And believe me: THERE’S A LOT. LIKE 20 OF THEM. So I’ve narrowed it down to three random books on my KIndle.
Day 3: E-Books
1. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
I purchased this book quite sometime ago when it was on sale, because I’m always in need for contemporaries and I’ve heard nothing but incredible things about Matthew Quick. Being that it’s been so long, I’ve forgotten what it’s about, but now I’ve just taken a quick (pun intended) look at the synopsis and OH MY GOD.
Forgive Me, Leaonard Peacock is a novel about (you guessed it), Leonard Peacock. Leonardo who decides to stash a pistol into his back pack, along with four gifts for the people who matter to him most. These gifts are his final goodbye, because on Leonard’s birthday, he plans to kill his former best friend and himself.
I know. MADNESS. I really want to read this book now. *side-eyes TBR jar*
2. The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Potzsch
I’m not going to lie; one of the first things that gripped me about this book was the cover. I love the Tim Burton-esque style and the old-fashioned font. Once I read the synopsis, I went ahead and purchased it. Besides, I could always use more historical fiction.
The Hangman’s Daughter takes place Germany, 1660, where a dying boy with some form of tattoo on his shoulder is pulled from a river. Murmurs of witchcraft spread through the area and stir up a thrilling tale.
I hope it’s as good as the cover.
3. Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley
I’ve had this beauty on my want-to-read list around the time I first started reading, which was about two years ago, and finally bought it around the beginning of this year (I think). Even back then, I was immediately drawn to fantasy books, and between the title, cover, and synopsis of Wildest Dreams, I had to have it.
Wildest Dreams begins with a girl, named Seoafin, or Finnie, in the modern-day world. Shortly after her parents perish in a plane crash, our protagonist finds a parralel universe where everyone has a twin. A witch sends her to this parralel universe, and there begins her crazy adventure where fantastical creatures roam and magic is as real as the air we breathe.
