I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be-read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the ones, I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.
Invictus by Ryan Graudin, September 26, 2017. Published by Little Brown Books for Young Readers.
Time flies when you're plundering history.
Farway Gaius McCarthy was born outside of time. The son of a time-traveling Recorder from 2354 AD and a gladiator living in Rome in 95 AD, Far's birth defies the laws of nature. Exploring history himself is all he's ever wanted, and after failing his final time-traveling exam, Far takes a position commanding a ship with a crew of his friends as part of a black market operation to steal valuables from the past.
But during a heist on the sinking Titanic, Far meets a mysterious girl who always seems to be one step ahead of him. Armed with knowledge that will bring Far's very existence into question, she will lead Far and his team on a race through time to discover a frightening truth: History is not as steady as it seems.
I'll just say it now, I have not read any of Ryan Graudin's books...ever! I don't even know why...probably due to too much hype surrounding them in the booksphere of the internet.
That being said, I'm actually kind of interested in reading Invictus as sometimes I enjoy time travel books. Though I haven't read a "new to me" one in ages now. This one sounds both fascinating and thrilling, which is probably why it caught my attention.
What say you, should I give this one a shot? *if my library should get a copy, that is*
