Desert a Thon

So I’m going to address the rest of my TBR’s this week. Starting with the most complex, Desert a Thon. In Desert a thon you have to roll for your reads. Here is my TBR I’m on Team Camel by the way, which is run by the wonderful Femke who is over at the Youtube Channel Bookish Buddies. Go and give her a visit along with Esmay her teammate on the channel who is also running one of the other teams on the readathon.

So here we have my Dessert a Thon TBR. I rolled with A D20, since I know some of these a chonks and I may struggle to read them in a month.

The process goes as such you go around the board rolling a die to get around this board.

If you land on your color you get two points if you choose to read the prompt of that color, you get one point if you choose any other prompt there are also wildcard spaces which you are allowed one.

There are twenty choice cards going by what you rolled from a d6 to a d20. I managed to match my color no times which was just lovely I did match the color with reading all the books of the color that I landed on.

Book 1-The Ice House

This book has to Involve a storm. For this book I chose the The Ice House, I found this one while I was on my trip. It’s about a global freeze. The focus is two friends trying to spend time with each other, definite pandemic feels.

Book 2-All for One

The prompt for this was a retelling. I could have gone with any of the common retellings but the one that I’m currently interested in is more unusual so I went with went with the new gender flipped chronic illness Three Musketeers retelling All For One.

Book 3- Cold The Night, Fast the Wolves

This was my wildcard pick so I chose one I needed read but haven’t had time. I got for a retelling that was doing Polar Fantasy. But I end up liking the idea from the book a lot, so it ended up on my TBR, so that’s why it’s my wildcard pick. Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves.

Book 4-Cece Rios and the Desert of Souls

This book had to be a fantasy and I wanted to get into magical realism and and my desert pick for the readathon. So I chose Cece Rios and the Desert of Souls plus it has been on has my TBR forever and I plan to get it finally read.

Book 5-Sorcery of Thorns

Sorcery of Thorns is a book of my friend The Blind Scribe has recommended to me time and again so I’ll put this in here as a friends recommendation.

Book 6-Had to have royals

For this book we needed to have royals in the plot, so I picked Night Render as I know it has a has a Princess, am pretty sure it has a prince and I know has lots of evil plots.

Book 7- I had to read a book with nature on the cover.

The first book I thought of was Sofi and the Bone Song. That shows a beautiful winter scene on the cover.

So these are my picks for Desert a Thon, a few a showing up in my other readathons because they are chonks and I’m cross listing, because my reading count is already looking like it’s going to crush me. But I need to get back on track for my yearly read goal so lots of books this month it is!

The High Priestess

The High Priestess is one of the strongest female energies in the whole entire deck. This card is about secrets, she knows about your inner mysteries and maybe the stuff you aren’t willing to face. When this card comes up in a reading think about reexamining those secrets before they come up at a time you don’t want them to. The high priestess knows your secrets but she cares about you too she wants you to be as open as possible.

  1. Aquicorn Cove

Summary

Aqicorn Cove was all about strong female energies and secrets, from the secrets about Lana’s mother, to her aunt as well as the underwater priestess. To the secret Aqicorn Lana helps raise this piece is all about female energy/nurturing and the connection to nature as well as the need to bring out secrets for the good of the family and town.

Amazon: Aquicorn Cove

2) The Goddess in the Machine

Summary

This is another one about female power and secrets. Though the implications for this are a bit darker maybe a reverse reading of the High Priestess. We have both female heroes and villains here both with a lot of secrets a supposedly a lot of power, then there is even a female Darkhorse of a character. I think this group could use the High Priestess in a card reading to explore all the secrets they are having to deal with.

Amazon: Goddess In the Machine

3) The Nightmare Thief

Summary

Another one with a female hero and villain and secrets. Maren Partridge works at her family’s dream shop, she makes a mistake and then is blackmailed by an evil villain who has her make nightmares.

With her family with power she is able to stop the villain and with her family by her side she is able to make things right, but not before a few secrets are kept, worries felt and power is shifted from different women in power.

Manifesting the Magician: Bookish Characters

Since the Magician card is about manifesting your power I thought I’d include cards were the character or character is learning to or is manifesting their own power skills or intelligence .

Eva Evergreen Semi Magical Witch

Eva is the essence of this card while she hasn’t found her footing with her power, she is still trying to help everyone with the heart of her powers and gaining confidence in herself. She starting to manifest herself as a witch an and example of the Magician card.

Summary

Sometimes all you need is a pinch of magic…

Eva Evergreen is determined to earn the rank of Novice Witch before her thirteenth birthday. If she doesn’t, she’ll lose her magic forever. For most young witches and wizards, it’s a simple enough test:

One: Help your town, do good all around.
Two: Live there for one moon, don’t leave too soon.
Three: Fly home by broomstick, the easiest of tricks.

The only problem? Eva only has a pinch of magic. She summons heads of cabbage instead of flowers and gets a sunburn instead of calling down rain. And to add insult to injury, whenever she overuses her magic, she falls asleep.

When she lands in the tranquil coastal town of Auteri, the residents expect a powerful witch, not a semi-magical girl. So Eva comes up with a plan: set up a magical repair shop to aid Auteri and prove she’s worthy. She may have more blood than magic, but her “semi-magical fixes” repair the lives of the townspeople in ways they never could have imagined. Only, Eva’s bit of magic may not be enough when the biggest magical storm in history threatens the town she’s grown to love. Eva must conjure up all of the magic, bravery, and cleverness she can muster or Auteri and her dreams of becoming a witch will wash away with the storm.

Amazon: Eva Evergreen Semi-Magical Witch

The Counter-Clockwise Heart

In this book Prince Alphonsus is really the one is really manifesting the Magician roll here. Using the lessons his mothers taught him to speak for himself his people and against the Margrave.

Summary

Time is running out in the empire of Rheinvelt.
 
The sudden appearance of a strange and frightening statue foretells darkness. The Hierophants—magic users of the highest order—have fled the land. And the shadowy beasts of the nearby Hinterlands are gathering near the borders, preparing for an attack.
 
Young Prince Alphonsus is sent by his mother, the Empress Sabine, to reassure the people while she works to quell the threat of war. But Alphonsus has other problems on his mind, including a great secret: He has a clock in his chest where his heart should be—and it’s begun to run backwards, counting down to his unknown fate.
 
Searching for answers about the clock, Alphonsus meets Esme, a Hierophant girl who has returned to the empire in search of a sorceress known as the Nachtfrau. When riddles from their shared past threaten the future of the empire, Alphonsus and Esme must learn to trust each other and work together to save it—or see the destruction of everything they both love.

Amazon: Counterclockwise Heart

The Best Worst Summer Ever

This pair is manifesting independence and a healing energy to the past that is able to do something I don’t to spoil.

This is going to be the worst summer ever for Peyton. Her family just moved, and she had to leave her best friend behind. She’s lonely. She’s bored. Until . . . she comes across a box buried in her backyard, with a message: I’m so sorry. Please forgive me. Things are about to get interesting.

Back in 1989, it’s going to be the best summer ever for Melissa and Jessica. They have two whole months to goof around and explore, and they’re even going to bury a time capsule! But when one girl’s family secret starts to unravel, it’s clear things may not go exactly as planned.

In alternating chapters, from Peyton in present day to Melissa three decades earlier (a time with no cell phones, no social media, and camera film that took days to develop, but also a whole lot of freedom), beloved author Elizabeth Eulberg tells the story of a mystery that two sets of memorable characters will never forget.

Operation Sisterhood

Bo and her mom always had their own rhythm. But ever since they moved to Harlem, Bo’s world has fallen out of sync. She and Mum are now living with Mum’s boyfriend Bill, his daughter Sunday, the twins, Lili and Lee, the twins’ parents…along with a dog, two cats, a bearded dragon, a turtle, and chickens. All in one brownstone! With so many people squished together, Bo isn’t so sure there is room for her. 
 
Set against the bursting energy of a New York City summer, award-winning author Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich delivers a joyful novel about a new family that hits all the right notes!

Amazon: Operation Sisterhood

Across a Field of Starlight

When they were kids, Fassen’s fighter spaceship crash-landed on a planet that Lu’s survey force was exploring. It was a forbidden meeting between a kid from a war-focused resistance movement and a kid whose community and planet are dedicated to peace and secrecy.
 
Lu and Fassen are from different worlds and separate solar systems. But their friendship keeps them in each other’s orbit as they grow up. They stay in contact in secret as their communities are increasingly threatened by the omnipresent, ever-expanding empire.
 
As the empire begins a new attack against Fassen’s people–and discovers Lu’s in the process–the two of them have the chance to reunite at last. They finally are able to be together…but at what cost?

Amazon: Across A Field of Starlight

Ophelia After All

Ophelia also likes to grow things but she has a rose garden instead of vegetable garden. Ophelia Rojas knows what she likes: her best friends, Cuban food, rose-gardening, and boys – way too many boys. Her friends and parents make fun of her endless stream of crushes, but Ophelia is a romantic at heart. She couldn’t change, even if she wanted to.

So when she finds herself thinking more about cute, quiet Talia Sanchez than the loss of a perfect prom with her ex-boyfriend, seeds of doubt take root in Ophelia’s firm image of herself. Add to that the impending end of high school and the fracturing of her once-solid friend group, and things are spiraling a little out of control.

But the course of love—and sexuality—never did run smooth. As her secrets begin to unravel, Ophelia must make a choice between clinging to the fantasy version of herself she’s always imagined or upending everyone’s expectations to rediscover who she really is, after all.

Amazon: Ophelia After All

Cookies as Books-Girl Scout Cookie Flavors

It’s that time of year again. I for one can’t resist the appeal of helping an organization that helps girls and trans youth grow and become fantastic young people but it doesn’t hurt that they have cookies. I have to get my Peanut Butter Patties and maybe a few Thin Mints, but not everyone loves these flavors and everyone has a flavor. So I’d thought I’d represent a few of the cookies as books.

Adventurefuls

New to the block yet full of life this sweet cookie deserves an equally sweet book.

The Forgotten Five Map of Flames

Amazon: The Forgotten Five: Map of Flames

Carmel Chocolate Chip

This is an old favorite a comfort read

The Fellowship of the Ring I chose this book because it’s a book I try to read every year hence the old favorite, and the caramel making it a bit of adventure.

Amazon: The Fellowship of the Ring

Carmel-De-Lites

A little tropical because of the coconut-a little sweet because of chocolate

The book I chose for this prompt was Ophelia After All because it was a sweet book about the protagonist learning about love relating to others and herself.

Girl Scout Smores

This cookie represents friendship and I wanted to pick a book where friendship was the central theme.

The Winterbourne Home for Vengeance and Valor

This is set in a creepy mansion where a bunch of friends must solve a mystery. At first the protagonist doesn’t want friends but slowly warms up to those around her as they help with the slowly unfolding mystery.

Thin Mints

One of our classics this is chocolate with a hint of a surprise

The Storyteller- I picked this book because the protagnist believes her great aunt to be Anastasia and however the book turns out she’ll get a surprise. I also picked it because it’s chocolate and her aunt would have possibly come from a rich background like and chocolate is rich.

Posted in Chopped Readathon

Yuzu-A sweet and tart protagonist

So Yuzu was one of my picks when it came to the readathon. It comes up often on Chopped as a citrus alternative, now I’ve only had it in candy, but from what I understand it’s sweet and tart, kind of like a lemon-lime flavor.

Fiona from Long Lost

Long Lost by [Jacqueline West]

Even the author of the book said Fiona fits Yuzu so I consider that good enough reason to put her on the list.

Eleven-year-old Fiona has just read a book that doesn’t exist.

When Fiona’s family moves to a new town to be closer to her older sister’s figure skating club—and far from Fiona’s close-knit group of friends—nobody seems to notice Fiona’s unhappiness. Alone and out of place, Fiona ventures to the town’s library, a rambling mansion donated by a long-dead heiress. And there she finds a gripping mystery novel about a small town, family secrets, and a tragic disappearance.

Soon Fiona begins to notice strange similarities that blur the lines between the novel and her new town. With a little help from a few odd Lost Lake locals, Fiona uncovers the book’s strange history. Lost Lake is a town of restless spirits, and Fiona will learn that both help and danger come from unexpected places—maybe even from the sister she thinks doesn’t care about her anymore.

A little bit sweet and little bit tart, Fiona is the perfect heroine for this mystery.

Amazon: Long Lost

Artemisia from Vespertine

Vespertine by [Margaret Rogerson]

Some may say that Artemisia is lemon and not yuzu but after seeing the way she treats people throughout the book and is willing to put herself at risk for others show that she’s not just tart. She cares about Revenant and the people in the cities she’s helping and the nuns.

Amazon: Vespertine

Jun Bei from This Mortal Coil Series

This Cruel Design (Mortal Coil) by [Emily Suvada]

Jun Bei is the real personality that was buried under another personality, she does try to control people with her hacking skills but at the same time she’s trying to fix a deadly virus. She’s a moral quandary, she cares about her friends but is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her goals. Very yuzu for this character.

A BOOK WHERE THERE IS NO LOVE INTEREST

Though there is no romance in this book it surely contains enough love and deals with the topic of childhood hoarding.

Family has always been important to twelve-year-old Maggie: a trapshooter, she is coached by her dad and cheered on by her mom. But her grandmother’s recent death leaves a giant hole in Maggie’s life, one which she begins to fill with an assortment of things: candy wrappers, pieces of tassel from Nana’s favorite scarf, milk cartons, sticks . . . all stuffed in cardboard boxes under her bed.

Then her parents decide to take in a foster infant. But anxiety over the new baby’s departure only worsens Maggie’s hoarding, and soon she finds herself taking and taking until she spirals out of control. Ultimately, with some help from family, friends, and experts, Maggie learns that sometimes love means letting go.

Amazon: Give and Take

A BOOK WHERE ROMANCE IS AN AFTERTHOUGHT

The Companion by [Katie Alender]

Yeah there is a romance between the lead, Margot and and the girl she takes care of Aggie’s brother however, Marot and Aggie and the brother spend most of the book trying not to get killed, drugged, or locked up by the mother figure in the book. So there is not much time for kissing while fighting for your life or trying to be drugged.

Amazon: The Companion

AN OVERLY CHEESY ROMANCE BOOK

You've Reached Sam: A Novel by [Dustin Thao]

Yeah, this book was a big cheese ball romance and very sweet. I don’t really like them normally but this one actually got me for a few reasons. I’d read it again but it is definitely again even though it’s a total cheese ball romance. This is a book to give for Valentines Day!

Amazon: You’ve Reached Sam

A BOOK WHERE A CHARACTER MARRIES FOR CONVENIENCE NOT LOVE

The Storm Crow by [Kalyn Josephson]

Though I have yet to read this book the blurb leads to believe this book is a marriage for convince. More about the very interesting world.

In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything.

That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. Her sister Caliza is busy running the kingdom after their mother’s death, but all Thia can do is think of all she has lost.

But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them.

I’ve also heard it’s a great example of depression, and it’s on my list for this year.

Amazon: The Storm Crow

A BOOK WITH ROSE/ROSES ON THE COVER

The Bone Spindle by [Leslie Vedder]

My favorite book so far this year there is romance but characters don’t just fall head over heels and it also has a lot to do with loyalty, magic and female friendship.

I tag whoever is interested, just please link back 🙂
