#Friday Reads is a weekly feature in which I will talk about the book I’m reading or am planning to read this weekend
What I’m reading this weekend
The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.
In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.
Lately, I have been feeling slightly overwhelmed with all the books that I have to read and review. Granted, ignoring my ever growing TBR pile isn’t doing me any favors but, sometimes I just want to read a book for fun. Taking a break and not stressing about the type of review that I am going to have to write will really allow me to enjoy reading the book. I will be in New York today and on Sunday, so I hope to be able to read it while I’m on the train. If not I still have the rest of the weekend to finish reading.
