This time of year is crazy. It’s the end of the semester, everything is due, my students are antsy because they’re ready for the break. So to keep a sense of normalcy and routine for myself, here are the books I’ve recently added to my TBR.
Aerie (Magonia #2) by Maria Dahvana Headley
What it’s about (from Goodreads)
Aza Ray is back on earth. Her boyfriend Jason is overjoyed. Her family is healed. She’s living a normal life, or as normal as it can be if you’ve spent the past year dying, waking up on a sky ship, and discovering that your song can change the world.
As in, not normal. Part of Aza still yearns for the clouds, no matter how much she loves the people on the ground.
When Jason’s paranoia over Aza’s safety causes him to make a terrible mistake, Aza finds herself a fugitive in Magonia, tasked with opposing her radical, bloodthirsty, recently-escaped mother, Zal Quel, and her singing partner, Dai. She must travel to the edge of the world in search of a legendary weapon, the Flock, in a journey through fire and identity that will transform her forever.
Why I added it
I enjoyed the world of Magonia, and said I’d go back. I was not aware that the sequel had come out, but be sure I’m checking in with my library to see if they have it.
