Paperback Friday

Book Of The Month

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless Lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . . Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg.

She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

Music

Here are some of my favorite songs this month!

Ocean Eyes by Billie Eilish: I’ve been watching you for some time/Can’t stop staring at those ocean eyes/Burning cities and napalm skies/Fifteen flares inside those ocean eyes/Your ocean eyes….

I don’t listen to a lot of Billie Eilish’s music but her voice is stunning and I really like the lyrics.

Pompeii by Bastille: And the walls kept tumbling down/In the city that we love/Gray clouds roll over the hills/Bringing darkness from above

I don’t know if it’s a stretch, but the song Pompeii really reminds me of that scene The Blood Of Olympus when everyone is fighting Gaea and all the monsters. Is it just me?

Look, I’m probably not obsessed, mind your own business.
