The extraordinary companion novel to Middlegame. The king of winter and the queen of summer are dead. The fight for their crowns begins! Melanie has a destiny, though it isnt the one everyone assumes it to be. Shes delicate; shes fragile; shes dying. Now, truly, is the winter of her soul. Harry doesnt want to believe in destiny, because that means accepting the loss of the one person who gives his life meaning, who brings summer to his world. So, when a new road is laid out in front of thema road that will lead through untold dangers toward a possible lifetime togetherwalking down it seems to be the only option. But others are following behind, with violence in their hearts. It looks like Destiny has a plan for them, after all.... One must maintain a little bit of summer even in the middle of winter.

Welp I know I‘m a taaaad behind on sharing my Summer Reads, but better late than never! This summer felt extra long and hot 🥵 so I turned to engrossing fiction titles that took me far away to other worlds and experiences. Here are the novels and stories that helped me escape the heat (at least for a while!)🔸 #2022reads #summer2022reads

alysonimagines I‘ve added this to my shortlist of favorite surrealist fiction about the absurdities of corporate culture written by Japanese women authors—yes, it‘s a very nichey niche! (edited) 1mo
alysonimagines Thank you @ThePageantHam for this excellent rec! It‘s a fascinating experiment on the reader, just as Toni Morrison intended. I want to read it again and see if I have a different reaction the second time. (edited) 1mo
alysonimagines I‘ve also added this strangely tender and touching book to my shortlist of favorite surrealist corporate culture fiction by Japanese women authors. 🖤🎌 1mo

Yay! The #BigJuneReadathon was a huge success for me. I finished 87 books/graphic novels, and started 2 others. There were so many great reads but also a handful of DNFs, but that‘s normal for me. I also managed to clear my #BookSpinBingo board and read a book to match each of the Big June Readathon prompts!

I hope everyone had fun this past month! Thank you for joining me! ❤️

A huge thank you to @Andrew65 for hosting the #JoysofJune readathon! I wasn‘t sure how much I‘d be able to read and post due to the multiple back to back shifts that I had this past week, but I did better than expected. Multiple #5star reads including Seasonal Fears, A Boy Made of Blocks, A Spot of Trouble, and All the Feels 💙 Least favourites include Finn, and Love in the Time of Cholera.

5feet.of.fury Nice! 5mo
kspenmoll Congratulations! Wonderful reading!! 5mo

Along the same truly confusing &intoxicating alchemical lines as Middle Game, but instead of Math & Language, the seasons are seeking to crown their North American avatars. I fell into this story fast, Harald March & Melanie Cosgrove are so charming. The cheerleader who has been dying since she was born &her sweetheart.

Ascendants &other Incarnates help &hinder them as the coronation approaches. Fascinating world building.

Clwojick Great review! This is my double spin, so I have to read it soon! 5mo
5feet.of.fury @Clwojick nice! I hope you find it as captivating as I did! 5mo
monalyisha Interesting that we were both like, “Hmm…too long” — & then promptly marked the next book as “to-read.” 😂 5mo

tokorowilliamwallace Have you read her old 2012 October Daye series volume, Ashes of Honor? I picked it up from the library; it would be my first by the author if I get to it. Sounds like urban fantasy. 5mo
5feet.of.fury @tokorowilliamwallace I haven‘t! I only read her “as Mira Grant” stuff before these. 5mo

For some reason I thought this was a short story collection. It took me way too long to understand that it was a novel in the same universe as another of McGuire‘s books. So I was kind like that guy who wanders in halfway through an MCU movie. “….wait do I know you, am I supposed to know you? Do you have your own movie? I don‘t get this joke?!??” Its a humbling experience.

🎧 This is a companion book to Middlegame not a sequel, Dodger doesn‘t even show up until the halfway mark.

This is a story of winter & summer not math & language.

Melanie & Harry have been in love since they were 6. Melanie was born with a heart defect. The night of their high school prom they are on the run and then on the hunt.

Multiple duos are also chosen for the hunt. If Melanie isn‘t chosen as the Winter Queen she‘s dead.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👇🏻

Twainy Mel has family members out to sabotage her quest.

What will Harry do? Will he believe this Summer King, Winter Queen story or assume it‘s an expertly crafted LARPing …

It was a solid follow-up to Middlegame & even more enjoyable. The story is more linear, so it's easier to understand and the dynamics between the characters are (on some level) more relatable. Some chapters were longer than I'd have liked for a quick bedtime read, but even the long ones moved quickly so I never felt like I was reading long passages.

I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.
