What Are You Reading Wednesday? – Prince of Thorns


Happy Wednesday!

Well, I’m slacking. This is my first post in a week, but alas, I caught the dreaded cold and naturally my ambition level has been at a solid zero. Thankfully, I’ve recovered enough to reenter the outside world and actually get it together for today’s post! Hopefully this Sunday I’ll have a late November wrap up for you all, but for now we can talk about what I’m currently reading. Sadly I’m only about 93 pages into this book so far, darn social interactions, but I’ll share what I can with you. ONWARD!

What Are You Reading Wednesday – The Scoop

After months of building friendships with so many bibliophiles on Instagram, a few of my booksta-besties and I have decided to start a weekly meme where we can all gush over what we are reading for the week.

The idea is that each week all of us book bloggers can write a post where we talk about the book or books we are reading for the week – and yes if you are still reading the same book for a few weeks in a row that is totally fine.  Just be sure to include the answers to the five questions for What are you reading Wednesday in your post.  Then hop over to one of the host sites and share your link!

Of course, this will be even more fun if you leave the host a comment, and then jump around to another post or two, or five, and gush with them!

We cannot wait to see what you are reading.

    Prince of Thorns (The Broken Empire #1) by Mark Lawrence


    Before the thorns taught me their sharp lessons and bled weakness from me I had but one brother, and I loved him well. But those days are gone and what is left of them lies in my mother’s tomb. Now I have many brothers, quick with knife and sword, and as evil as you please. We ride this broken empire and loot its corpse. They say these are violent times, the end of days when the dead roam and monsters haunt the night. All that’s true enough, but there’s something worse out there, in the dark. Much worse.

    From being a privileged royal child, raised by a loving mother, Jorg Ancrath has become the Prince of Thorns, a charming, immoral boy leading a grim band of outlaws in a series of raids and atrocities. The world is in chaos: violence is rife, nightmares everywhere. Jorg has the ability to master the living and the dead, but there is still one thing that puts a chill in him. Returning to his father’s castle Jorg must confront horrors from his childhood and carve himself a future with all hands turned against him.

    Mark Lawrence’s debut novel tells a tale of blood and treachery, magic and brotherhood and paints a compelling and brutal, and sometimes beautiful, picture of an exceptional boy on his journey toward manhood and the throne.

  • Why did you pick up this book? – cover or content? Both! I’ve seen this book floating around the bookstagram community and the cover definitely caught my eye, it’s just so dark and mysterious. That lead me to looking it up on Goodreads and once I read the synopsis I knew it was a book I needed to get.
  • Who is your favorite character so far, and why? This is really hard since I haven’t had a chance to read much of this book yet, but I’m very intrigued by Jorg. He’s so full of darkness, but I already feel for him. Then there’s Makin, Jorg’s second, and I just feel myself falling in love with him, or at least liking him a lot.
  • Will you finish this one? Yes! I’ve already purchased the next two books in preparation for my latest obsession.
  • Finish this sentence: This book reminds me of…the Sword of Truth series, just a tiny bit. With the variety of characters and all of the chaos, I can’t help but think of that series.
  • What type of read is this one? This is a very intense read. Page one drops you right into the violence and murder, and it doesn’t slow down much from there. It’s a bit rough, but I think that’s because it’s the first book and there’s a lot of world building still to do, so we’ll see.

     So there you have it! I feel like I didn’t say much this week, but I suppose that’s a side effect of only having read 92 pages of your current read. Anyway, as usual, make sure to share your links to your own “What Are You Reading Wednesday” or share in the comments! I love seeing what you all are reading! Until next time!
