Picked these up yesterday evening from Barnes and Noble while walking around an outside marketplace! Very very excited to read them soon. I was so close to getting zodiac academy: the awakening but there are just too many in that series and I don't need that stress right now haha!

Voya received her calling, meaning first bleeding. The ritual is that one of the ancestors will appear to assign her a task that must be completed in order to become a witch. YA fantasy with a “pinch” of sci-if which I didn‘t expect, mystery. I liked the story it was ok, entertaining but unnecessarily too long. It appeals to the importance to take decisions. I think is overrated in GR. the bleeding ritual parts were disgusting, nasty🤢3.3⭐️

Gissy Love that cover😍

TheAromaofBooks Sometimes it feels like authors just want to be kind of “edgy“ to seem more creative. 😕 7mo
Gissy @TheAromaofBooks Maybe 😳but the story was entertaining. I need to read different genres and for different audiences because I need variation in my monotone life🤣and I really love that cover with those colors, silly because that‘s maybe irrelevant to the story but I can‘t help it🤷🏽‍♀️ 7mo

It felt appropriate to do some #audiocooking while I sank into a book about a talented teenage cook. BLOOD LIKE MAGIC starts off with some major infodumping, but after last night‘s arancini-making session and a couple other tasks today, I‘ve made it far enough in that I‘m invested in the characters and their world. I loveloveLOVE how trans-inclusive Sambury‘s near-future Canada is, too.

when Voya fails her challenge to inherit her family magic, she gets a second chance if she destroys her first love. one small problem. she‘s never been in love. until she finds someone who just might fit the bill.
sooooo upset to finish this and realize it‘s a duology that won‘t be finished until later this year, definitely very YA, but Voya‘s growth was *chefs kiss*

In 2049 Toronto, Voya has just had her first bleeding, which means she will have to complete a task to determine whether or not she will have magic like the rest of her family. While this is the plot, much of this book is dedicated to developing the characters of Voya‘s family, which lends it a wonderful richness not always found in YA. I really enjoyed this and apparently it‘s the start of a series, so I‘m excited for more!
