First Impressions Friday: The Kingdom of Back

First Impressions Friday is a weekly book meme created by J. W. Martin, in which you talk about a book which you have just started. Maybe you’re only a chapter or two in, maybe a little further. Based on this sampling, give a few first impressions and a prediction of what you’ll think by the end of the book!

I have followed this meme a while now and when I saw it over at Reading at Tea Time I just had to try it out!

Born with a gift for music, Nannerl Mozart has just one wish: to be remembered forever. But even as she delights audiences with her masterful playing, she has little hope she’ll ever become the acclaimed composer she longs to be. She is a young woman in eighteenth-century Europe, and that means composing is forbidden to her. She will perform only until she reaches a marriageable age—her tyrannical father has made that much clear.

As Nannerl’s hope grows dimmer with each passing year, the talents of her beloved younger brother, Wolfgang, only seem to shine brighter. His brilliance begins to eclipse her own, until one day a mysterious stranger from a magical land appears with an irresistible offer. He has the power to make her wish come true—but his help may cost her everything.


My First Impression of The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu:
This is my very first Marie Lu book and right now I´m 50 pages in which means I´m about to start chapter 5. I really enjoy the book so far, the vivid language of the story makes everything feels a little more magical that a normal story. I have heard people saying they find the language a bit annoying but for me so far it`s only a great thing. I can´t wait to continue on with this story. Music and Magic in the same story? How can you not like that? I hope this book will keep on going strong and that I at the end of it will have another 5-star read.

What are you currently reading and how do you find the read so far?
