Book Haul! Today I got not only Favorite Folktales from Around the World, but also the just published first novel of a friend from my MFA program. Floxx is a YA fantasy about an Alaskan teenager who crash lands in another world. Can't wait to read!

Centique That‘s so exciting to have a friend‘s book in your hands 😍 3mo

This one has been on my TBR for a while- have read some but not all! It being #FolkloreansFairytalesWeek I think it‘s as good as any time to finish, and also count towards my own #AtoZFairytalesandFolkloreChallenge !

Tex2Flo Love hearing tales from other cultures and finding similarities and the macabre. 2y

I love reading this when I need a quick break from my current read, which is very depressing.

#funFridayphoto My parents were immigrants to the US and my early childhood was filled with fairy tales and folk tales from Cuba and Spain. 💕 I remember stories about brujas (witches) and adas (fairies) and intrepid young girls who didn't listen to their to their parents ... 😊 Such great memories! (Couldn't find the book tag for the book in the pic but close enough!)
