There‘s not enough caffeine in the world today. This book kept me from fully freaking out during a crazy 1am thunderstorm last night, but sadly that doesn‘t bring back the lost hours of sleep 😴💤☕️

Howl's Moving Castle | Diana Jones

Have any of y‘all read Howl‘s Moving Castle? I picked it up entirely because I saw a lot of reviews of Sorcery of Thorns that compared the two. So far it‘s cute! 📖🦊🍻

Centique I read this as a kid and remembered loving it. Must do a reread! 4mo
Carlie892 @Centique I just finished it! It definitely had a younger vibe than I expected but it was very cute 😊 4mo

Sky in the Deep | Adrienne Young

Still thinking about Sorcery of Thorns, but I‘m also very excited to start Sky in the Deep. The blurb tells me this book is “part Wonder Woman, part Vikings” and I can‘t think of anything more badass than that.

MellieAntoinette Loooved this one so much! ♥️ 4mo
Carlie892 @MellieAntoinette oooh yay good to hear! I‘m just getting into it but so far so good! 4mo

Sorcery of Thorns | Margaret Rogerson

THIS BOOK. I don‘t have the words to describe how much I loved Sorcery of Thorns. I stayed up way too late to finish it (hello #baddecisionsbookclub) and all I want to do is start it again from the beginning. I‘ve been impatiently awaiting this book from the moment I finished An Enchantment of Ravens, and it surpassed all my expectations. Now I‘m suffering from a hell of a book hangover, and I wouldn‘t have it any other way.

An Enchantment of Ravens | Margaret Rogerson

Pickpick

So, I flat out LOVED this book. I made the mistake of starting it before bed on Sunday and I was up until 3am reading. An Enchantment of Ravens grabbed me from the very first page. Isobel‘s independence and firm sense of self were refreshing, and Rook‘s “declarations” were adorable. I loved everything about this book and I HIGHLY recommend it for fantasy and faerie story fans.

I loved the My Fair Assassin series - it‘s hard to choose a favorite out of the three books! Annith‘s story was the most unique of the three, and I loved her determination to go against the convent to seek her own destiny. All in all this was a great conclusion to the series, and I‘m looking forward to revisiting this world in Courting Darkness.

A fantastic book that kept me reading well into the night. One Day in December is a perfect winter read. The story spans almost a decade, but it‘s surprisingly easy to breeze through for such a wide-ranging book. It‘s not quite a light read - there are many intensely emotional moments, both happy and sad - but it‘s moving and poignant and overall uplifting. Highly recommended.

A Dangerous Collaboration | Deanna Raybourn

I really do enjoy the Veronica Speedwell mysteries. This is the fourth book in the series (and the third one I‘ve read) and they keep getting better. I love Veronica‘s wit and quirkiness, and she and Stoker as a team are just fantastic. The mystery at the center of A Dangerous Collaboration - Malcolm Romilly‘s missing bride - kept me guessing until the reveal. All in all another fantastic installment!

Fantastic conclusion to the Jackaby series. I‘ve loved each book, and The Dire King was no exception. William Ritter created a truly fascinating world in this paranormal take on Sherlock, and I highly recommend the series as a whole.

Bridge of Clay | Markus Zusak
post image
Pickpick

I love Markus Zusak‘s writing. Bridge of Clay is such a beautifully complex story. It‘s one of those books that I suspect will take a few rereads before I really “get” every nuance, but even if you don‘t quite understand it all at first, it will make you *feel*. That‘s something that‘s remained consistent for me in Zusak‘s writing - he has such a talent at evoking emotion through his words, and Bridge of Clay is no exception. Highly recommended.

It‘s been a while since I‘ve been *this* excited about a book. I‘ve been waiting SO, SO LONG for Markus Zusak to come out with a new book and I‘m so happy Bridge of Clay is here 💕 I don‘t know if I could possibly love this as much as The Book Thief but I can‘t wait to find out. #BridgeofClay #TheBookThief #MarkusZusak #LunchtimeReads

Mirror Gate | Jeff Wheeler
post image
Pickpick

I love Jeff Wheeler‘s books. They continually live up to my very high expectations. I‘ve read (I think) all of his fantasy series (Muirwood, Kingfountain) and I just adore the worlds he creates and how they are all interconnected in some way. Mirror Gate is the latest installment in his new Harbinger series, and I can‘t recommend it highly enough!

BookwormBoo I just finished this a few hours ago. I‘m new to him but loving the books so far... but did you think this ended abruptly? I was so upset when I went to download the next one and saw it gets released next month! 1y
Carlie892 @BookwormBoo I know, I felt the same way! Luckily he has several completed series you can read in the meantime :) (I highly recommend the Muirwood books if you‘re liking this series so far!) 1y

This is such a great epic fantasy series. Books 4-6 of the Kingfountain series follow the children of the protagonists in books 1-3. Usually I wouldn‘t been too keen on skipping so far forward in time, but here it works and I‘m loving getting to know the new characters set in the same world. It‘s also really fun to pick out all of the elements from the King Arthur legend entwined into this tale. All in all it‘s another wonderful installment.

This book was simply phenomenal. Jeff Wheeler is a master world builder. I loved how he combined the elements of Dickensian England with the magic of his previous series. The characters were all engaging and the multiple POVs were all equally interesting. And that twist at the end 😍 no spoilers but it made me so happy I could cry. I can‘t wait to continue this fantastic series!

Dark descent is right. Kiersten White has such a gift for writing atmospheric, gothic stories. I should‘ve been reading this on a dark & stormy night, rather than a hot summer day! Elizabeth Frankenstein was a strangely likeable character, though she wasn‘t 100% blameless and innocent in the face of Victor‘s crimes. All in all this was a really good story, from the dark beginning to the shocking end.

Diving into my pile of #BookCon ARCs this weekend. I love Kiersten White‘s “And I Darken” trilogy so I‘m super excited to read this one.

Epic, lyrically written & immersive. There are so many intricate interwoven pieces to this story, and it‘s told from so many different viewpoints that it can be a bit hard to follow at times. But it‘s so worth reading. The writing is beautiful and descriptive, and you can feel the biting winter wind even while reading this book in the middle of summer. If you like dark fairytale retellings, add this to your TBR list ❄️💕
