Happy April 1st bookworms, I know this is a difficult time for many of us, and I know I have really been struggling with the isolation, and not being able to go home. But I’m trying to look on the bright side, and spring is coming in full force here on the West cost, with cherry blossoms blooming and warmer days. I am also starting the Magical readathon today, which is so exciting! So I thought to kick things off I would do another WWW- Wednesday.
For those who don’t know WWW-Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam from Taking on a World of Words where anyone who wants to participate answers three questions about what books you are currently reading, just finished and want to read next. As always (I know I sound like a broken record here) I want to hear from all of you about what you are currently reading down in the comments! What books did you have as a must read during this quarantine to keep your spirits up?
What did you recently finish reading?
In an Arizona desert, a man wanders in a daze, speaking words that make no sense. Within twenty-four hours he is dead, his body swiftly cremated by his only known associates. Halfway around the world, archaeologists make a shocking discovery at a medieval site. Suddenly they are swept off to the headquarters of a secretive multinational corporation that has developed an astounding technology. Now this group is about to get a chance not to study the past but to enter it. And with history opened up to the present, the dead awakened to the living, these men and women will soon find themselves fighting for their very survival — six hundred years ago.

Sorcery of Thorns
*for my History of Magic OWL
All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power.
Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them.
As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she’s been taught—about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could never have imagined.
