It's tough to write a book about a villain that makes the reader understand her perspective yet still want to see her go DOWN, but I think Meyer hit it. I loved reading about Levana's background and the more details about how she became queen, and I also loved how Meyer gave her multiple opportunities to change her path - but Levana justified her actions to herself each time and kept going. Even though it was a little hard to take a break in the ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) action between Scarlet and Winter, I still really ended up enjoying this one and feel like I'm going into Winter with plenty of backstory. I do feel bad for Levana, but Meyer did a great job showing how Levana took the bad things in her life and embraced them and used them for a justification for doing more bad things, instead of realizing that those things didn't have to define her. So excited to see how this series wraps up!! 8h

Really cute workplace romance that addresses some heavier issues - depression and single parenthood are front and center. This was my first by this author and I‘ll probably check out some of her other books!

Ok, so I started this thinking it would be a murder mystery. Husband died in a mysterious way, did the wife do it?

While their was murder and almost murder as well as some mystery, they weren‘t all wrapped together. So I‘m still counting this towards the Murder Mystery prompt for #Booked2022 since it had all the elements.

I loved this book. Beatriz marries Rodolfo Solorzano for security but when she arrives at his house The Hacienda, she quickly realizes that Rodolfo's first wife's ghost never left & she's in a lot of trouble.

Vansa The horse and his boy has always been my favourite Narnia book. I love the weaving in of Arabian nights themed fantasy into this. And I like the subverting of tropes, that flighty, chirpy Lasaraleen, when it comes down to it, shows immense bravery to help her friend. 3d
imyril I've always had a soft spot for these two although I suspect I'd have a lot of eyeroll these days for the way Lewis depicts the Calormenes. Nephew is the one that has stayed with me - I have always found Jadis unusual as a children's fantasy villain and appreciated her all the more for it; and Uncle Andrew is just nastier and better observed the older I get. Such small-minded and very human sins all round (however big Jadis's ambitions!) 2d
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! The Narnia series is a favorite of mine. 2d
LibrarianRyan What a great series. 2d

Wowowowow. Can‘t really say much about this without spoiling it but it‘s really tragic and really creepy. Reminds me of one of my fave movies but I can‘t say which or it gives away a major spoiler. My only complaint is how much it dragged after the climax.

Jane of Lantern Hill | L M Montgomery

I drew a random title from the windowsill pile to break up my Lunar Chronicles reading and was quite happy with this month's #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead was picked. This is a childhood favorite that I hadn't read in decades and I was glad to have the nudge to pick it up for a reread!!

Jane actually holds up pretty well over time. This and The Blue Castle are two of my favorite Montgomery's, and they have some similar themes of a dreary home life ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) at the beginning of the book and the eventual escape to a more independent and fulfilling life. Jane gains confidence as she learns to embrace what she loves. She does seem a bit young to do all the things she does, but her sturdy can-do attitude, strong sense of justice, and delightful sense of humor once again won me over. There are so many fun side characters sketched in just a few perfect sentences as well. As an adult, I wish that ⬇ 3d
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) the ending was a little less abrupt, but you can't have everything!
