1. My library growing up had meeting rooms behind doors that were built into the walls, which was so cool, and had a hill that we'd run up and down anytime we passed. But my favorite memory is @WildAlaskaBibliophile asking me out on our first date
2. A local bookstore or library. I rarely buy books from Amazon or B&N unless I have a gift card
3. I haven't read much this past week, but I'll start the tagged book soon.

This was a fun palate-cleansing read. There‘s a lot going on for ~300 pages: pirates, assassins, flying houses, cartoonishly evil villain, secret identities, and extensive literary references to the Brontës. Based on what I was expecting from the cover and blurb, it had a surprising level of spice (which was pulled off well). While I had a fun time with this, it only gets 3.5 stars due to cramming in a bit too much plot for such a short book.

Mehso-so

Several people have recommend Sanderson to me. I decided to give this one a go because (1) it's not over 500 pages & (2) it's a stand alone.

Honestly, I almost DNF'd it because I got bored & kept putting it down. I finally started skimming it just to see how it resolved. I realize I'm not the target demographic for this book, & maybe that's the issue. Overall, it was just okay, but it doesn't make me want to pick up any of his other books.

Ruthiella I think you could read the first Mistborn novel as a stand alone. It is 600+ pages, however. I read that trilogy and am happy to not read any further. But I understand the draw. He‘s so popular, it‘s hard to not have FOMO. 😃 2w
wanderinglynn @Ruthiella I‘ve picked up the first Mistborn book so many times when at a bookstore, mostly because people keep recommending it to me, but for some reason, I‘ve never gotten it. It just never called to me. And after reading this book, I doubt I‘ll ever pick it up or anything else he‘s written. I just didn‘t dig his writing + there are too many other books on my TBR. 2w
Laughterhp I‘ve tried to read Sanderson a few times too, but he‘s just not for me.. I bailed on this book. I read the first Mistborn but I think I only got through it because I read it on audio. 2w
wanderinglynn @Laughterhp glad I not the only one 🙌🏻 2w

If you like literary-themed soy candles, please check out Frostbeard Studio. They are a small handmade business & are having a slow year. I have quite a few of their candles & can attest that they smell delicious.

Plus, the blue hard cover is my new (used) copy of the tagged! It‘s an absolutely gorgeous edition!

TieDyeDude I used to have multiple copies of this before my last move. I kept the 25th Anniversary hardcover. I have the Pops, too! 2w

This was an absolute delight of a read! I would even go as far as to say it was right silly at times😆 Tress sets out on a dangerous voyage on the spore seas to find her love, Charlie. From pirate ships, to dangerous water activated spores to a wish granting dragon the book is not short on adventure!
