What Are You Reading Thursdays is a new feature I’m starting to discuss what we are reading that week. Each week we will feature the book we are reading and talk about it, tell what we like about it, what we don’t like about it and discuss what it’s about. Feel free to follow along with us and share in the comments what you are reading this week or post on your blog as well.
This week my book is:
Embrace by Jessica Shirvington
What I Like:
To be honest, I just started reading this book. I'm only on chapter 3, so I haven't really got too far into it, but so far the story has pulled me in and I can't wait to see what happens.
What I Don't Like:
As I stated above, I haven't read that far into it, so I don't have any objections to it as of now.
I think this cover is absolutely GORGEOUS! I'm a fan of purple so the background color is beautiful. The model crouching in a sitting position as if she is praying about something, with the touch of feathers around her is also great. But what I love most about this cover is the smoky wings!
