Hello and welcome to another Goodreads Monday!

This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners and it invites you to pick a book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it. Easy peasy!

I have a huge “want to read” list on goodreads at the moment so ill be using a random number generator to pick one from the list to talk about. So without further ado….

The magic number is 551! Which means that the featured book this week is Of Silver and Shadow by Jennifer Gruenke. Currently rated 4.09 based on 357 reviews and published in February 2021.

Ren Kolins is a silver wielder—a dangerous thing to be in the kingdom of Erdis, where magic has been outlawed for a century. Ren is just trying to survive, sticking to a life of petty thievery, card games, and pit fighting to get by. But when a wealthy rebel leader discovers her secret, he offers her a fortune to join his revolution. The caveat: she won’t see a single coin until they overthrow the King.

Behind the castle walls, a brutal group of warriors known as the King’s Children is engaged in a competition: the first to find the rebel leader will be made King’s Fang, the right hand of the King of Erdis. And Adley Farre is hunting down the rebels one by one, torturing her way to Ren and the rebel leader, and the coveted King’s Fang title.

But time is running out for all of them, including the youngest Prince of Erdis, who finds himself pulled into the rebellion. Political tensions have reached a boiling point, and Ren and the rebels must take the throne before war breaks out.

Why do I want to read it?

Amazing reviews, amazing cover design and most of all this just looks like exactly my sort of book. It has been recommended to me so many times based on my love for a great young adult fantasy book. The characters sound amazing and it looks to have quite a lot of humour mixed in as well and I love that in a story.

    1. Yes, definitely! Do you already have a copy? It’s £8 for the kindle edition right now which is a bit more than I like to pay for an ebook and £11 for the paperback which again is a bit pricey. It’s on my wishlist though so I can let you know if I manage to get it when the price drops a bit? x

        1. No no that’s ok I just wasn’t sure if you were wanting to prioritise it or anything because I am really having to curb my book buying because I am out of control 🤣🤣🤣
