An Ember in the Ashes

So, I requested a book from the library to read this week, but I completely forgot about it and never picked it up. I decided to just reread a book I read a couple of years ago.

Sabaa Tahir wrote An Ember in the Ashes in 2015. I read it in 2016 for the first time, sometime around the end of November. I read in about a couple of hours because I was completely hooked. I read it again in like late September-ish in 2017, because the third book was going to be published (This was later pushed to June 2018).

Although I don’t like it quite as much as I did the first time I read it, it’s an amazing debut. I recommend reading it, and it’s part of a quartet. The final book will be published in 2019.

An Ember in the Ashes is about Laia and her journey to save her brother. To do so, she has to conquer her fears and spy for a group of rebels known as The Resistance.

I don’t want to say much more, but the basic plot motive becomes clear a couple of pages in.

I started reading 11/01/18, and as of 11/08/18, I am on page 14. I’m trying to make more time to read, so I’m aiming to be on page 100. Because I haven’t read much, I can’t say much, so next week I will talk about the total pages I’ve read (hopefully, it’ll be 100).
