Emi is the kamigakari. In a few short months, her life as a mortal will end and her new existence as the human host of a goddess will begin. Carefully hidden from those who would destroy her, she has prepared her mind, body, and soul to unite with the goddess-and not once has she doubted her chosen fate. Shiro is a yokai, a spirit of the earth, an enemy of the goddess Emi will soon host. Mystery shrouds his every move and his ruby eyes shine with cunning she can’t match and dares not trust. But she saved his life, and until his debt is paid, he is hers to command-whether she wants him or not. On the day they meet, everything Emi believes comes undone, swept away like snow upon the winter wind. For the first time, she wants to change her fate-but how can she erase a destiny already wrought in stone? Against the power of the gods, Shiro is her only hope… and hope is all she has left.

This is a weekly blog meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes and it runs on Goodreads. This week’s theme is forgettable books! As you can imagine, it was hard to come up with five books where you could remember why they were forgettable.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme. It used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but this week is the first week it is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Thank you very much to the Broke and the Bookish for hosting it for so many years!
This week’s theme is top ten bookish resolutions/goals. I have briefly talked about my goals here (2018 Goals) but I thought I would have a formalised list.
At first sight, Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He thinks himself surrounded by idiots – neighbours who can’t reverse a trailer properly, joggers, shop assistants who talk in code, and the perpetrators of the vicious coup d’etat that ousted him as Chairman of the Residents’ Association. He will persist in making his daily inspection rounds of the local streets.
But isn’t it rare, these days, to find such old-fashioned clarity of belief and deed? Such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a lifelong dedication to making it just so?
In the end, you will see, there is something about Ove that is quite irresistible…
A book blogger meme hosted by Bookshelves and Paperbacks blog where the three main categories are:
- A diverse book you have read and enjoyed
- A diverse book that has already been released but you have not read
- A diverse book that has not yet been released
This is a weekly blog meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes and it runs on Goodreads. I’m looking forward to doing this blog meme, because while I really like Top Ten Tuesday (and not just for the alliteration), this means I can discuss the books more.
This week’s theme is books I didn’t get to 2017!
