Reading Slump

  Hello and welcome back or welcome if you are new. Today I bring you a ramble if you will. I've been very slumpy reading lately. Heck the desire to much of anything has been hard to find. It started when my step mom was moved into palliative care in March, then was made worse 41 days later by the passing of my grandmother on May 7th.  I've been reading bits here and there or mindlessly played audiobooks in the background but I just haven't had desire, the drive to pick up a book. I wanted to so badly but nothing was calling me and what I did read I know I didn't give my all to because I just didn't have it in me to give.  Sunday evening after work, whilst walking through my favourite graveyard the urge to sit down hit me hard. I wanted read there and then but you see the book in my bag was not what I wanted to be reading. ( I have been reading The Dragon Republic for at least 2 months, nothing against the book its all me + obligation reads)  I have realized I need

 Hello and welcome back or welcome if you are new to the blog. Today I have a cover reveal. Kindred of the Sea by Raina Nightingale  Back Cover Blurb: When Corostomir and his partner march into battle and find themselves dreaming the dreams of trees, they know that all is not what it seems. . . The Valor Alliance has declared war on Elethri, naming it haunt of demons and forest of the nightmare. But when the Valor Soldiers are driven back with enchantments of sleep and not with arrows, his partner, Aderan, and their friend soon convince Corostomir that a nation that will not shed the blood of its enemies, let alone that of its own people, cannot be in the thrall of the nightmare. Corostomir and Aderan must now make a difficult decision, one that is forced when the Valor Alliance sends the Army back to attack Elethri, this time by sea instead of land.

It is coming a little later then planned but late is better than never. Book Info Genre: Historical Fiction/Alternative History Adult Literary Fiction  Length: 528 Pages Publishing: 15th March 2022 Amazon Goodreads   Blurb Cadenza is the City of Words, a city run by poets, its skyline dominated by the steepled towers of its libraries, its heart beating to the stamp and thrum of the printing presses in the Printing Quarter. Carlo Mazzoni, a young wordsmith arrives at the city gates intent on making his name as the bells ring out with the news of the death of the city’s poet-leader. Instead, he finds himself embroiled with the intrigues of a city in turmoil, the looming prospect of war with their rival Venice ever-present. A war that threatens not only to destroy Cadenza but remove it from history altogether… My thoughts ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 The Carnival o
