My wanna-read book of the week (that I haven’t had time for yet) is an interesting one: The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johnasen.
The book is the first of what is scheduled to be three books and Emma Watson has reportedly signed on to be the lead in the movie adaptation.
This book hasn’t gotten the media acclaim or rave reviews that some series usually get (and boost my desire to read them), however, I’m intrigued. I love Emma Watson and I think her choice of roles post-Harry Potter has shown her to be a good judge of writing. She also likes powerful female characters, something I also enjoy in a good book.
The reviews on GoodReads have been pretty mixed, so I don’t know what to expect when I finally get down to reading this one. Hopefully, it’s a decent start to a trilogy that could build into something special.
The premise of the book is that a 19-year-old is brought to her kingdom to rule after being in exile for her entire childhood. Magic, danger and suspense all appear to have a role in this debut novel.
