It’s the first Friday Reads of the year people! Today, I picked up a book I’ve been wanting to read for so long.
I’m currently reading The False Prince (Ascendance Trilogy #1) by Jennifer A. Nielsen. I’ve been wanting to read this book for so long and I finally felt like picking it up. I’ve heard really good things about it and even though I’ve only read like 2 chapters, I’m liking it already.
Synopsis: In a discontent kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king’s long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Four orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner’s motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword’s point — he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. But Sage’s rivals have their own agendas as well. As Sage moves from a rundown orphanage to Conner’s sumptuous palace, layer upon layer of treachery and deceit unfold, until finally, a truth is revealed that, in the end, may very well prove more dangerous than all of the lies taken together.
What are you reading this weekend? I’d love to hear about it -and maybe even pick up some recommendations. Have a great weekend!
