Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren, check out her blog over at Lauren’s Page Turners!
I love participating in this meme, I only recently started. It’s very simple 😉 if you wanna join in on the fun simply choose (at random) any book on your TBR. Then share it with us! You can post a picture and link to the book or author, you can add the blurb or your own little synopsis about the book. You can even add why you’re so excited to read it! It’s totally up to you. Don’t forget to link back to Lauren’s page so everyone can check out your post.
This week I chose……..
In an exhilarating new series, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time.…
Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.
Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.
When his friend inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn…
I’ve noticed there are a lot of books revolving around magical Libraries. It sounds incredible. A world where owning a book is illegal??? Well I would clearly be going to jail………who’s with me?
