Hey all! So sorry I haven’t been keeping this blog as active as I would like to: I’ve been busy typing away with my Camp Nanowrimo challenge!
But as I have been busy, off-computer, I have also been busy reading! And right now, I am engrossed in my now favorite book series, ever since I got it for my birthday.
As you can see from the title, the name of this series is called the Keeper of the Lost Cities Series (or KotLC) by Shannon Messenger. Today I want to tell you about the series! If you haven’t read it, hopefully you can, and if you have already, we can have a KotLC discussion in the comments! 😀
So, let’s jump right in. What’s it about?
The blurb of the first book reads,
Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret—at least, that’s what she thinks…
But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.
But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out.
Sophie, the main character has never been an ordinary human for her whole life. She has an ability that, though it might seem useful, is such a burden to her. She can never fit in because of it.
But then everything changes. Drastically. She is forced to give up things, enter a whole new world, and meet interesting people — that may not be human. That’s where the adventure begins. Suddenly, Sophie is in grave danger every day. Betrayals, battles, and danger is everywhere.
These books are so hooking. Once you start, you can’t get out of the swirl of action and danger. Prepare for late nights reading, thoughts filled with the book, and severe addiction to the series and the characters.
Seriously though, it is the best. I hope you decide to read it.
Chat time! What do you think of my introduction of the books? Did it hook you? And if you’ve already started/read the series, what do you think of it? We can chat about it bellow, as long as we can keep it spoiler free.
Thanks for reading! When August comes, I can promise many more blog posts to make up for my long breaks.
Bye now! God bless!
