Happy Friday! I hope you have plans for a bookish weekend!
I'm just glad that tomorrow I have the day off work, I'm exhausted! 😴😴😴
Thanks for coming back for this week's Friday 56. I have so much fun doing these!!
The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. There are only 4 rules:
The book that I've chosen for today is The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton which came in my May Book Box Club! The cover is stunning, the stars and gold foiling are just too pretty, and the story sounds fantastic! This book is huge and I can't wait to dig in!
Here's the synopsis from Goodreads:
The erratic decisions of a prophecy-obsessed king have drained Innis Lear of its wild magic, leaving behind a trail of barren crops and despondent subjects. Enemy nations circle the once-bountiful isle, sensing its growing vulnerability, hungry to control the ideal port for all trade routes.
The king's three daughters—battle-hungry Gaela, master manipulator Reagan, and restrained, starblessed Elia—know the realm's only chance of resurrection is to crown a new sovereign, proving a strong hand can resurrect magic and defend itself. But their father will not choose an heir until the longest night of the year, when prophecies align and a poison ritual can be enacted.
Refusing to leave their future in the hands of blind faith, the daughters of Innis Lear prepare for war—but regardless of who wins the crown, the shores of Innis will weep the blood of a house divided.
This is the quote I've chosen from page 56:
She died at dawn on her first daughter's sixteenth birthday, twelve years ago this winter.
I literally chose the first line from the page, trying to divert my eyes from anything else as I'm really looking forward to reading this and don't want to spoil anything.
I feel like it's quite a good quote though. Sad with a tinge of mystery. I have so many questions now...
Are you intrigued? Would you keep reading?
