February 03: National Day the Music Died. Choose 5 books which feature either music or death.

I’ve not read all 5 of these books, but the ones I haven’t are on my TBR list. I choose books that feature death or the afterlife as an important plotpoint.

My five choices for this weeks theme.

A little more detail: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi.

Summary.

Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you’re only seventeen?

Maya is cursed. With a horoscope that promises a marriage of death and destruction, she has earned only the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar’s wife, she finds something else entirely: Compassion. Protection. Desire…

But Akaran has its own secrets—thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Soon, Maya suspects her life is in danger. Yet who, besides her husband, can she trust? With the fate of the human and Otherworldly realms hanging in the balance, Maya must unravel an ancient mystery that spans reincarnated lives to save those she loves the most…including herself.

    Hey! I haven’t read any of these books, but a few of them should interesting. I’ll have to check them up someday. I haven’t gotten my post completely finished yet, but I should have it up in the next hour or two! When you suggested this theme I was super ecstatic. Since last week I talked about the genre paranormal I decided to go for a more musical set of books! 🙂
