The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today! This meme is hosted by Midnight Book Girl.
I’m currently reading:
The City of Brass by S.A Chakraborty
Among the bustling markets of eighteenth century Cairo, the city’s outcasts eke out a living swindling rich Ottoman nobles and foreign invaders alike.
But alongside this new world the old stories linger. Tales of djinn and spirits. Of cities hidden among the swirling sands of the desert, full of enchantment, desire and riches. Where magic pours down every street, hanging in the air like dust.
Many wish their lives could be filled with such wonder, but not Nahri. She knows the trades she uses to get by are just tricks and sleights of hand: there’s nothing magical about them. She only wishes to one day leave Cairo, but as the saying goes…
Be careful what you wish for.
I’m rereading this as part of a readalong and I’m actually behind. I should have started the second book by now but as you can see, I have not. I am hoping to finish this by the end of tomorrow and start the second book next month and catch up. I’m loving the reread as I love the world and the characters.
Have you read this? Are you taking part in the readalong?
