Weekly Reading Update (WRU #1)

The Week of Slow Beginnings 


This week I haven't accomplished much in reading, as I am slowly crawling out of a MASSIVE 2 month reading slump where I have read in 2 months. My last year of high school has already been filled to the brim with deadlines and due dates, tests, homework, projects and much more so reading has had to take the backseat for a while. Now that I am beginning to have a little more time to read I find that I am not motivated to read, but I still crave the act of reading something....hence my 2 month slump.

Now that my explanation is said....... This is what I've manage to start and will hopefully finish by the end of this weekend.

Goodreads Blurb:
Liyana has trained her entire life to be the vessel of a goddess. She will dance and summon her tribe's deity, who will inhabit Liyana's body and use magic to bring rain to the desert. But when the dance ends, Liyana is still there. Her tribe is furious--and sure that it is Liyana's fault. Abandoned by her tribe, Liyana expects to die in the desert. Until a boy walks out of the dust in search of her.

Korbyn is a god inside his vessel, and a trickster god at that. He tells Liyana that five other gods are missing, and they set off across the desert in search of the other vessels. The desert tribes cannot survive without the magic of their gods. But the journey is dangerous, even with a god’s help. And not everyone is willing to believe the trickster god’s tale.

The closer she grows to Korbyn, the less Liyana wants to disappear to make way for her goddess. But she has no choice--she must die for her tribe to live. Unless a trickster god can help her to trick fate--or a human girl can muster some magic of her own.
