Weekend Blog Hops - 7 December 2018

It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book-blogger hopping.

Do you tend to visit the same blogs each week but also try to look for new blogs?
I do tend to visit the same people each week when we do these hops. I know who usually visits me, and I try to comment on their posts in return.
I don't search out new blogs on a regular basis, unless I am looking for something particular. However, I have been searching a bit for new podcasts lately, both as a way to keep up with news on things I love and as a means of practicing some of my foreign languages.

The tip of the blade skims over my ribs, burning from the cold of the ice, but not drawing fresh blood.


 



From page 56:
He laughs when I run a finger over his ribs, but it trails off when I wander to his chest and trace the deep scars hachured into his skin.


My Current Read
Prince of Air & Darkness
M.A. Grant


Phineas Smith has been cursed with a power no one could control.

Roark Lyne is his worst enemy and his only hope.


The only human student at Mather’s School of Magick, Phineas Smith has a target on his back. Born with the rare ability to tap into unlimited magick, he finds both Faerie Courts want his allegiance—and will do anything to get it.

They don’t realize he can’t levitate a feather, much less defend the Faerie Realm as it slips into civil war.

Unseelie Prince Roark Lyne, Phineas’s roommate—and self-proclaimed arch nemesis—is beautiful and brave and a pain in the ass. Phineas can’t begin to sort through their six years of sexual tension masquerading as mutual dislike. But Roark is also the only one able to help Finn tame his magick.

Trusting Roark’s mysterious motives may be foolish; not accepting his temporary protection would be deadly.

Caught in the middle of the impending war, Phineas and Roark forge a dangerous alliance. And as the walls between them crumble, Phineas realizes that Roark isn’t the monster he’d imagined. But their growing intimacy threatens to expose a secret that could either turn the tide of the war…or destroy them both.

  7. Funny that both quotes mention ribs.

    I tend to stick to the blog hop blogs, too. Many blogs I used to follow have stopped posting, so this is one way to know who is still active.
