November was probably one of my better reading months comparatively as far as quantity goes. Quality started off strong then kind of tanked after Earthsea though. I was a little overly ambitious with my expectations though so I didn't meet any of my goals lol. All 7 were physical books but two were library loans. I also managed to cross three titles off my bookspin backlog. Overall I'm pleased and disappointed at the same time.

My goal is to hit my 140 pages a day which may or may not mean finishing something.

I really enjoyed this. The world felt unique and interesting without being overly complicated and I liked watching Hart and Mercy find each other despite having known each other for four years.

I think the tagged book was my favorite read of October. I read a lot in October, but not a lot of books that I loved.

Let‘s see what November & December bring!

HeyT Oooh this is my first book for November and I'm loving it so far! 1mo

Managed to finish A Wizard of Earthsea this week and make a good dent in the tagged.

#WeeklyForecast
My goal this week is to finish Hart and Mercy and then move on to Tombs of Atuan. I'd like to finish Tombs this week as well but I'm trying to be more realistic with my goals.

That was an emotional rollercoaster I was not anticipating! I really loved this one. Set in a western border town edged by zombies, a love story unfolds. An enemies to lovers read, but filled with fantasy elements. I loved the juxtaposition of not having cell phones but having toaster pastries. The world Bannen has built is similar to our own but also completely foreign.
The characters were lively and I was apparently attached b/c I am 😭😍

“Another death-themed #standalone #fantasy #romance, yay!”, I thought when I started, but it turned out death is just the background here, a fancy worldbuilding gimmick. Instead, this is about putting yourself out there, for other people to see—and potentially judge—and about communicating with those close to you. Plus, it‘s a fun #enemiestolovers romance. Overall, recommended.

Thank you @Laughterhp, for putting this on my radar.

4.0/5

One of my final picks for the #spookyseason 👻!

TLuvs Brilliant mix between fantasy and romance, perfect balance of push and pull for the enemies to lovers troupe, and the characters (main and supporting) are so wonderfully developed! I'm only about half way through and this is already a book I wish I could do a first time reread on. 1mo
TLuvs I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK! Definitely one of my top 5 for the year and I will always have a copy in order to reread it in the future. Overall there is nothing about this book that I didn't like! Even through the tears 😢! (Why is there not an option for a happy tear emoji 🤔) 4w

Finished this one on Tuesday last week. I loved this book and I hadn‘t even heard of it until I got it as a birthday book! This was set in a different world where there are old and new gods and demigods. Mercy‘s family runs a funeral home. Hart is a Marshall who has to fight zombie like creatures (but they aren‘t zombies). And they unknowingly start writing letters to each other and slowly fall in love.

5/5

Mercy is undertaker and Hart, a warden tasked with killing the undead, is a frequent and reluctant customer, who loathed Mercy from the moment he met her. He finds solace from his difficult life writing letters to an anonymous friend, never realizing that Mercy is the person responding and is just as unaware of who her secret pen pal is.

It's a beautiful book that isn't afraid to acknowledge death. I loved the world building.

Kind of ‘You‘ve Got Mail‘ but with zombies and demi-gods.

An utter delight

Bk4 of September is done! Well. This only came yesterday & I finished it last night. It was brilliant🙌 It‘s a very hard book to describe, it spans a few genres but fantasy romance works I guess. I‘m not a romance reader(at. All.)but totally fell in love with the story, world & characters. And the snark was amazing! Such a unique world, I don‘t think I‘ve read anything like it before(and that‘s saying something).Recommend 5⭐️ #BookspinBingo

📚Adult FairyLoot .. July 2022. It was lost & I just got it. I was meh … but I‘m glad I didn‘t skip. I love the skull flower stenciling on the edge. I‘m intrigued by the summary. Not my usual genre but I look forward to reading

Monthly update for my #2022ReadingBracket. The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy was my favorite August book. It beats my July favorite, The Bodyguard. But it lost up against my May favorite, The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes.

I loved this book a lot. It had an enemies to lovers romance between a super tall grumpy, demigod warden and an undertaker who loves her family, great side characters, an interesting fantasy world, and humor. The fantasy worldbuilding is woven into the story. Just overall a lot of fun.

Happy (belated) Pub day! I absolutely adore this book!
It‘s very cozy fantasy vibes and showcases an heartwarming and lovely story that pulls at all the heartstrings. The characters, world building, and plot are all just the right balance of angsty and heartfelt with a hearty dose of hopeful.
There was even letters included for a You‘ve Got Mail vibe (my favorite).

You‘ve Got Mail meets Pushing Daisies with spice—I think this will work for a lot of readers but it was just okay for me. Instant physical attraction never works for me, especially in enemies to lovers. I feel like I should have known because I didn‘t like the cover but I heard such great things from other booksellers I decided to give it a try! But all my cons will be pros for other readers so if this sounds good to you, go for it!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘ve been looking forward to this read for a long time, and I was so excited when it finally came! I enjoyed the banter, humor, romance, and characters that this story had and I will definitely have to read it again. My only complaint is that I wish this story never ended.

I received my July Adult Fantasy FairyLoot. It's absolutely gorgeous. I like the cover a lot, but LOVE the foil embossed hardcover. Now I have to decide if I leave the cover on or off?

tpixie #PrettyCover one reason I don‘t like hard covers is because half the time the cover comes off and then it‘s just a boring ugly book underneath whereas paperback covers stay on. What a special treat! (edited) 4mo
