Scattered Reading Sunday

I enjoyed doing this last weekend so I thought I’d do it again this weekend. This is great since there’s quite a few books that i have to read before I can really dive into my own stacks of books. (It’s also good if you don’t know what to read next.) Here are the books that I’ve read today, I’ve even finished a couple.

Finished:

Guilty Blood by Rick Acker

Made Progress With:

I am halfway through this, and I’m really looking forward to finishing this one and the rest of the trilogy.

Started:

This is book club pick for August. I read the first chapter and I think I’m going to like it. Either way, I’m glad to finally getting to it.

Well, that is what I was doing today. What about you?

Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

Farseer Trilogy #1

From Goodreads:

Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father’s gruff stableman. He is treated as an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him secretly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitz’s blood runs the magic Skill—and the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family. As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the throne, he may just be the key to the survival of the kingdom.

I was given a  copy of this title, free, in exchange for my honest opinion. 

4 Stars

The last time that Clare had seen her sister Alice was when she was in the car being driven away to America by their dad. Despite every effort to find Alice, going through multiple private investigators and internet searches, Clare has been unable to locate her sister. An unexpected letter arrives, announcing that Alice is indeed alive and looking for her sister and her mother. But meeting her sister does not go according to any of the fantasies that she had imagined.

Without giving too much away, somebody is crazy and it’s really not clear who it is until the end. That makes for an enjoyable reading experience. I really enjoyed this book, it kept me guessing. While there were a few twists that I was able to predict, I was never 100% sure that I was right until it came to pass in the story. I can’t say that there was any one character that I truly liked, it’s hard to say that when you see how they react. I think it was unreasonable, considering how involved that they were with each other.  And that would be my one complaint, there really wasn’t any allies for the person who needed it most.

If you are into psychological thrillers, or family dramas, I would definitely recommend this one!
