Tell Me Tuesdays # 36!!

Tell Me Tuesdays is a meme/feature created by the awesome La La In The Library, where we can share how we choose the book we are currently reading from our TBR pile!

I'm always curious about that, cause as much as I tend to make myself a rough schedule for books to read and the like, I'm quite a mood reader and sometimes I just HAVE to ignore my schedule and read something else!

Stolen Songbird by Danielle L Jensen

For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the mountain. When Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she realises that the trolls are relying on her to break the curse.

Cécile has only one thing on her mind: escape. But the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time…

But the more time she spends with the trolls, the more she understands their plight. There is a rebellion brewing. And she just might be the one the trolls were looking for...

 Golden Son by Pierce Brown

With shades of The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, and Game of Thrones, debut author Pierce Brown’s genre-defying epic Red Rising hit the ground running and wasted no time becoming a sensation. Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom from the overlords of a brutal elitist future built on lies. Now fully embedded among the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his work to bring down Society from within. A life-or-death tale of vengeance with an unforgettable hero at its heart, Golden Son guarantees Pierce Brown’s continuing status as one of fiction’s most exciting new voices.

 Thorn by Intisar Khanani

For Princess Alyrra, choice is a luxury she's never had ... until she's betrayed.

Princess Alyrra has never enjoyed the security or power of her rank. Between her family's cruelty and the court's contempt, she has spent her life in the shadows. Forced to marry a powerful foreign prince, Alyrra embarks on a journey to meet her betrothed with little hope for a better future.

But powerful men have powerful enemies--and now, so does Alyrra. Betrayed during a magical attack, her identity is switched with another woman's, giving Alyrra the first choice she's ever had: to start a new life for herself or fight for a prince she's never met. But Alyrra soon finds that Prince Kestrin is not at all what she expected. While walking away will cost Kestrin his life, returning to the court may cost Alyrra her own. As Alyrra is coming to realize, sometime the hardest choice means learning to trust herself.

Thorn has received a Badge of Approval from Awesome Indies.

Both Stolen Songbird and Golden Son are re-reads. I've joined the official readalong to prepare for Warrior Witch on Goodreads, so each week we read a few chapters and discuss them! And I'm really enjoying Stolen Songbird, almost even more than the first time around! And Golden Son I'm re-reading on my own in preparation for finally reading Morning Star that arrived in the mail last week!

And Thorn is a buddy read with my friend LaLa for the #RockMyTBR challenge. It's a retelling of The Goose Girl and I'm really enjoying it!
So what are you all guys reading and how and why did you decide to pick up that book? Shiny new ARC? Comfort read? Scheduled for review? Must have new release? Tell me!!


  1. LOVED STOLEN SONGBIRD SO MUCH PILI! I need to re-read it too because I still haven't read book two. Might have to do that asap so I can be ready for Warrior Witch.

    And I'm glad to hear your enjoying Thorn, it's still somewhat startling to see one of my covers on blogger friends' sites!

    1. Join the readalong Jenny! We're reading just 5 chapters per week and we'll be reading Hidden Huntress (that I haven't read either!) too, so it'll be perfect to prepare for Warrior Witch!!

  2. I've heard amazing things about Stolen Songbird, I need to read it!
    I was going to read Golden Son this week, but I'm so behind my schedule I still can't.
    I hope you love Thorn!

    1. Thank you Lis! I hope I'll love Thorn too!

  3. I had no idea that was what Stolen Songbird was about. I like the aspect of knowledge of something taking away fear and replacing it with understanding. I am kicking up my Thorn re-read tonight. I got stalled out at 42% trying to get my last two February ARCs read (and I failed anyway, ha ha).

    1. I'm gonna have Thorn on pause until tomorrow night, since I'll be at work and hope to have some time to read!

  4. Yay for re-reading books :D I love re-reading books. <3 The best thing. All of these seems awesome :) I hope you will love all of them sweetie. <3 Happy reading Pili :)

  5. I saw that you read Morning Star! I WAS excited about reading it but... I saw some things (spoilers) about Mustang that I hated. So I no longer want to read the book. :/ Maybe sometime waaaay in the future, when the spoiler shock wears off!

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy the books (read and rereads)!
