The Adventures of Amina Al-Sirafi | Shannon Chakraborty

In the first half of this book Chakrabory lays the foundation for her new series. As a result it is a slow and, frankly not very interesting beginning to what becomes, in the second half a thrill ride through a well-built world. Amina Al-Siafi is a mother, was a ship‘s captain/pirate and returns to the sea to rescue a young, magical girl . Her past shipmates join her on what becomes a life threatening adventure. Looking forward to the next entry.

This book will be in my top 10 of the year. (Things I read in week 1 usually are!) I was really interested in this story but unprepared for how much I would ADORE the voice 😍 written in first person as if the main character is telling her story in her words to a journalist, it‘s SO GOOD. The adventures of a middle aged mother retired pirate with a bad knee… I‘m so happy there‘s more coming. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

julesG I'm really looking forward to the sequel(s) 2w

Stronger than the first book in the series, this is basically nonstop action. It‘s a fun, quick read, and if you like teen adventure stories, this is definitely one to check out!

CrowCAH Are you going to continue and read the third book which recently came out?! I own the third, but haven‘t read it yet. 🏴‍☠️ 2w
behudd @CrowCAH yes! That‘s why I‘m doing this reread because I didn‘t remember it at all 😅 starting book 3 tonight! 2w

This makes the books seem much darker than it is 😅

I first read this book 5 years ago and agree with the 3-star rating I gave it then. This was Levenseller‘s first work, and that‘s how it reads - like she‘s finding her footing. That being said, she‘s one of my favorite teen authors because her characters & worlds are always adventurous and fun. It was good to be back with Alosa & Riden, & even though this isn‘t a favorite book, it was a fun reread.

A delayed #bookreport #weeklyforecast

Felt a bit scattered last week, one short finish and hopping between several on the go. We'll see how this week goes, but I definitely want to finish Treasure Island on audio because my hold for Ace came in and I'm really looking forward to that one.

This is my current audiobook. Adventures stories are not my typical genre, but a bunch of kittens recommended it a couple years ago so I bought it. I am so caught up with it. I love the characters and all the mythology. It truly is a swashbuckler. It‘s fun to get used to the names from a region of the world I rarely read about and even more fun when I recognize cross religious stories. Halfway through and still being surprised and carried along.
