Book Review | The Special Ones by Em Bailey

Esther is one of the four Special Ones, chosen to live under his protection in a remote farmhouse. They are not allowed to leave, and they must always be ready to broadcast their lives to eager followers on the outside.

But on renewal day when he┬ádecides that a new Esther, Harry, Lucille or Felicity must take their place, the old ones disappear – forever. The new ones don’t always want to come, but soon they… realise. Until one day Esther has a realisation of her own, and it changes everything.

Friday Reads | Under Rose-Tainted Skies + The Special Ones + Wayfarer

Hello lovely readers,

It’s already the second week of the New Year. Can you believe how fast the days are coming and going? Since it is Friday, I have a new post to share with everyone. I’d say that this will be a weekly thing, from now on. Instead of doing a ‘Currently Ready’ blog post every time I start reading a new book; I have come to the decision that a weekly update will be much better (?)

Anyway…

How has your week been?

Mine consisted of a lot of tears…

Moving on to the books I have been reading this week!
HonestlyJ, I haven’t had the time to read this week at all! It’s the worst when you just want to sit down and relax for a couple of hours, just reading a book. But life gets in the way. From 5.30 in the morning to 4.30 in the evening, I get ready for work and will be at work the whole day. There’s simply no room for reading. When I get home, I have to cook dinner – take a short nap and then its time to sleep.

How do you guys do it?!!!

Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall

I have been wanting to finish this book for the past two weeks, and I have had no such luck. It is such a great book, in my opinion, and it has its funny moments (which I love). So, if you have not heard of this wonderful novel, yet! Then I am recommending it to you now! It’s about this girl who has agoraphobia, and she wants to become part of the world again. But her irrational fear of the world outside, simply does not allow her to do what she wants.

The Special Ones

I bought this book at YALC, as a recommendation from the publisher’s stall. I haven’t really read past the first paragraph. However, I am sure that I am going to like it. I have only read one other work by Em Bailey – which is Shift, and I really enjoyed reading that.

Wayfarer

I am so happy that my request to receive an eARC for this book was approved in NetGalley!

So far, it┬áhas been great. It follows on the events that happened in the first book – immediately after the ending! So, I suggest re-reading the first book again before diving into this one.

I really should give you more information about these books, and I promise I will – this blog post will be reposted in a couple of days (most likely, this Sunday) to give you a better synopsis of what I have been reading!
