Oh wow, what a fantastical read. I really enjoyed this story. Set in Egypt & the Middle East you follow Nahri through her journey to find out her origins in the world of Daeva/Djinn. There is magic, action, adventure and unrequited love. The next instalment needs to be read now!
Thank you @jenniferw88 for sending me this marvellous book.

Phew. That took me a while! Anyhow, I really liked this and I‘m excited to read the next book. I‘ve been really getting into fantasy novels recently because I love how it transports me to another world. I love Nahri and I love how ballsy and strong she is. It‘s lovely to have a novel where a woman is shown as a strong individual who doesn‘t need anybody‘s help. Loved it❤️ (also kind of fell in love with Dara)😶

This historical fantasy is full of in-depth world-building, (which I think I‘m still wrapping my head around) interesting characters, and some political and social elements that still ring true today. I‘m excited to talk about it on this month‘s @EclecticReaders podcast episode and definitely looking forward to reading the next book soon!

Getting through the second half of this book has been an uphill battle. Nothing wrong with the story. I'm just feeling lazy and only want to read articles about decluttering the house and fashion on a budget. 😆

That's more like it! This book is much more up my street, there is far off lands, folklore, magic and a strong female lead. The City Of Brass has got me hooked so I'm snuggled under a blanket hiding from the rain and an impending Monday morning with my nose stuck in a book 🤓📚📖😁

I'm a little bit late, but here are my #SeptemberReads! I also tagged The City of Brass because I read most of that in September even though I finished it yesterday. You'll notice this final version looks nothing like my September TBR. I received my Kopp Sisters ebook ARC and threw over everything else I wanted to read. It was a good decision!

Quirkybookworm I LOVE the Kopp Sisters! I‘m excited to read the next one and it‘s ARC!! 2mo

Megabooks @Cinfhen I did very much! I read it for the BOTM challenge. I have not read the sequel. I usually wait for all the books in a series to come out before I read it, so I‘m going to wait and then finish it. And I usually don‘t like fantasy, but this was awesome!! 2mo
Megabooks @ShelfRighteous I hope you enjoy it. It‘s really good!! 2mo
ShelfRighteous @Megabooks I'll read it when the next book comes out in 2020. Hate to be left hanging for months, better to read the complete series😬 2mo
Cinfhen I loaned my copy to my brother who never returned it 🙄I‘ll wait for the sequel before I start bugging him ( although I‘m pretty sure it‘s nearing on 18 months that he‘s had the book) 2mo
Megabooks @ShelfRighteous @Cinfhen I‘m not sure if it‘s going to be a trilogy or quartet. I haven‘t looked into it yet. The tagged sequel has already been published. And Cindy, 18 months, smh, it‘s not that long!! (edited) 2mo
ShelfRighteous @Megabooks Its called The Daevabad Trilogy. So the last book will come out in 2020 it says on Google. I'll wait till then😬 2mo
Megabooks @ShelfRighteous Awesome, thanks for looking that up!! 2mo
ulrichyumiodd I loved the sequel as much as the first book, so hopefully it will be worth waiting for, for you as well! Also, I agree, the covers are so pretty! I need to buy a hardcopy of the second one. 2mo
ruskigurl16 Is this the first book in the trilogy? And it really is an absolutely gorgeous cover! 😍 2mo

Megabooks @NeedsMoreBooks Ooo! Sorry I missed your reply! I really enjoyed it! I read it when it came out about 2 years ago and plan on rereading it as part of the trilogy when they‘re all out. 2mo

Love, love, love. It‘s taking everything in me not to run to Barnes & Noble to buy the next book (I want to support my local bookstore, which is closed.) Patience is a virtue. While I was slightly confused with all of the different names to start, I just couldn‘t put it down! Please note, there‘s a glossary in the back. I loved the magic, the characters& the intense, multiple story lines . #booked2019 #muslimauthor #newyearwhodis

Brandon_Lee_Hayes Check your local library to see if they have it! I love buying books and supporting authors but there's nothing wrong with checking out the library! 3mo
Sresendez12 @Brandon_Lee_Hayes yes I love the library! They actually have an e-book available but their server is down and you can‘t download anything. Hopefully this evening! 3mo

I finished the last 200 pages in less than 24 hrs - 2x my usual reading quota for the day and a ringing endorsement to boot.

If you enjoy the settings of The 1,001 Nights or Aladdin, but with lots of political intrigue, history, and modern sensibilities, give this one a shot. Bonus: if you have some basic knowledge of Arabic, you'll get some fun jokes, too.

I struggled a bit with this book, as it is fantasy rooted in Muslim history/lore (a fairly unfamiliar topic). At the same time, I loved this book for the exact same reasons. The beginning was pretty slow for me. It could have been me struggling to keep up with so many unfamiliar words/names/language, but I feel the plot was also lacking early on. Half way through, I was more invested. I did audio, which helped with pronunciations. 🌟🌟🌟

Wow! Reading along, I was all “this is a solid 4 star read” I get to the last couple hundred pages and here I am 2 hours past when I usually fall asleep, having just finished a great 5 star book. I have a ridiculous stack of books from the library and I‘m sorely tempted to jump straight into kingdom of copper right now. Alas, sleep and responsibilities.

I wanted to get a good start on this before I officially committed to reading it. Nearly 100 pages in and I‘m ready to say I am definitely planning on finishing this, barring some bizarre turn-around that ruins the story. Very interesting word building so far, especially since I‘m unfamiliar with the folklore/mythology/culture that is the inspiration behind this story.

Had to stop at Barnes and Noble (which is at the halfway point on a 3 1/2 hour drive home from visiting family) and treat myself. I am so looking forward to reading this. My TBR is seriously out of control though. I could not buy another book for like three or four years and not run out of reading material. Lol. Oh well, they all spark joy!
