Weekend Blog Hops - 15 May 2020

Hi all! It's time for those weekend blog hops once again!  
As a book blogger yourself, what was the last book you read as a result of a fellow blogger's post?
I have added books to my wishlist in the past, after seeing them on a blog hop post like this on another's blog. However, it's hard to recall what the last one of those I read was. It might have been Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik.

Opening sentence:
Never come to Hellfire House without wearing a mask. It was one of the rare rules in a joint without any.

From page 56:
As the soft violin notes floated back into her ears, Kallia spun the dagger in the air, but it never fell.
My Current Read
Where Dreams Descend
Janella Angeles

In a city covered in ice and ruin, a group of magicians face off in a daring game of magical feats to find the next headliner of the Conquering Circus, only to find themselves under the threat of an unseen danger striking behind the scenes.

As each act becomes more and more risky and the number of missing magicians piles up, three are forced to reckon with their secrets before the darkness comes for them next.

The Star: Kallia, a powerful showgirl out to prove she’s the best no matter the cost

The Master: Jack, the enigmatic keeper of the club, and more than one lie told

The Magician: Demarco, the brooding judge with a dark past he can no longer hide

Where Dreams Descend is the startling and romantic first book in Janella Angeles’ debut Kingdom of Cards fantasy duology where magic is both celebrated and feared, and no heart is left unscathed.


  1. Sounds like a page turner. I love the cover too! I added you to the linky but hope you still pop by! Happy weekend, stay safe!

  2. I have heard about Where Dreams Descend. I haven't read it, but I like the quotes.

  3. Funny to have a quote about wearing masks during this time, though I'm sure they aren't the same type. My highlighted book's quotes

    1. Yes, it is. But you are right: these are the fancier masked-ball kind. :)

  4. I'm really looking forward to trying this one myself. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Now I am intrigued. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  6. I loved the snippet from page 56! Very exciting :)

  7. I see circus and I'm automatically intrigued. This sounds like a great read and I love that cover. Thanks for sharing. Happy reading! :)

  8. Oh I read Spinning Silver as well, but I turned out not to like it, unfortunately. I had high expectations, but this probably wasn't for me.

    Here's mine:
