ARC Review – Eyes of the Void

Book review
Eyes of the Void cover; Author: Adrian Tchaikovsky; Publication Date: May 3, 2022; Print Length: 608 pages; Reads Dates: May 18, 2022 - May 22, 2022

Hello, everyone! I’m excited to finally be reviewing Eyes of the Void by Adrian Tchaikovsky. I enjoyed the first book in The Final Architecture series. So, I was really looking forward to reading this sequel. I’ve been a bit behind on my ARC reviews, and I was hoping to get to this one earlier. I kept putting it off because I knew it was going to be chonky and super dense (but in a good way). It took almost a whole week of reading, which is a long time to spend on one book for me, but I’ve finally finished it!

First Lines Fridays (49) – May 20, 2022

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Hello, everyone! I’m excited to be trying something new today that will hopefully become a weekly occurrence here on the blog: participation in WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words. I’ve really enjoyed reading other bloggers posts each week for this meme. So, I decided to give it a shot myself! I’ll be answering the following questions:

  1. What did you read last?
  2. What are you currently reading?
  3. What will you read next?

Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Drinks for Reading

Hello everyone! Welcome back for another Top 5 Tuesday! The prompt for today is my top 5 drinks for reading. In general, I’m pretty basic when it comes to what I drink. So, this is going to be a pretty boring list. lol. I detest tea with a passion. I don’t particularly like coffee that much either, but I’ll occasionally drink it if it has lots of sugary stuff in it. I also don’t really drink alcohol anymore. I’ve never really cared for the taste unless it is drowned out in some sort of delicious cocktail, and I only drink cocktails when I go out, which hasn’t happened in a couple of years at this point. After the cancer surgeries and treatments, I honestly just sort of lost interest in alcohol. So, it is not making this list either. What does that leave? Read on to find out! Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, and is now being hosted at Meeghan Reads!
