Hi Guys! I know it’s been a minute. I’ve been super busy between raising a 9 year and working two jobs. I’ve still been reading, though! Just haven’t had a lot of time to sit down and type detailed reviews. So I’ve decided to update everyone on what I’m reading and briefly summarize my thoughts, starting with Nic Blake and The Remarkables.
I’ve recently received some great ARC’s, and Nic Black and The Remarkalbes by Angie Thomas is one. Here’s the synopsis via Harper Collins:
It’s not easy being a Remarkable in the Unremarkable world. Some things are cool—like getting a pet hellhound for your twelfth birthday. Others, not so much—like not being trusted to learn magic because you might use it to take revenge on an annoying neighbor.
All Nic Blake wants is to be a powerful Manifestor like her dad. But before she has a chance to convince him to teach her the gift, a series of shocking revelations and terrifying events launch Nic and two friends on a hunt for a powerful magic tool she’s never heard of…to save her father from imprisonment for a crime she refuses to believe he committed.

- Review: Wow! This book was excellent. I’ve been doing well this year with keeping up with my reading goals but have still felt that I was in a slump. I thought I was missing my usual enjoyment when reading, but this book brought it back. This book is well-paced, action-packed, has excellent world-building, and has bits and pieces of Black history throughout the novel. I recommend it if you’re into YA and Fantasy novels.
