What are you currently reading
I am reading Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson and Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. Shatter Me is a reread because I felt like starting this series over again. Well, at least the first three books.
Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren’s capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.
By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.
Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

I recently finished Warcross by Marie Lu.
For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.
Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

I want to start A Curse of Crows by Belgian author Lauren Dedroog.
A female villain origin story, encompassed by rich new mythology and set in a fantasy world fans of Sarah J. Maas will devour…
Ever since she was a child, Diana prayed and offered to the gods—even Keres, the God of Malice, whom any sane mortal avoids like the plagues he might bring to their doorstep or the deals that the god is known for.
But when Diana finds herself in desperate need of help and prays to the god, she finds herself entangled in one of those very deals. Yet Keres isn’t the villain she’d been taught to avoid and the daemons she feared as a child aren’t the enemy. It’s not Hell she should be wary of, but the realm of the gods, where thorns hide beneath spoken words and vows.
While Diana learns her place in this game of thorns, she finds herself tested again and again. But everyone has their limit.
Dive into a new and original high fantasy series where Chaos thrives and the truth is buried beneath the rubbles of aeons of secrets and schemes. Yet truth is like a stubborn weed.
It always finds a way.
