This is Sparrow and Smokey, the two kitties I let my niece and sister talk me into adopting. They spent most of their lives living in the animal clinic where my niece was working so they‘re still adjusting to living in a house. Smokey is shy and likes to hide out in the back room. Sparrow seems to be having no problem making herself at home.

September wasn‘t a great reading month. I‘ve been in and out of depression since having to put Hermione to sleep and it started getting hard to concentrate on my books. I finished the rest of A Dance with Dragons and made it through the two shorter novels and then started watching a lot of TV. I just started getting out of my reading funk so I‘m hoping to get more reading done for October.

flying_monkeys It's so hard to say good-bye. It takes me months to get over one of my kitty's passing. Take the time you need and read when it feels good. Trying to force ourselves to read just cancels out the healing power of books/stories. 🤗 2w

A Girl. A Prince. A Monster.

I wasn‘t sure how I felt about this at first but after a few chapters I got pulled into the story and found myself really enjoying it. It was a very dark story with a lot of fighting, a lot of blood, and a dangerous love. I would recommend to lovers of dark/gothic fantasy. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

‘The days of my childhood kept turning over; dissolving like sea foam on the crest of the waves. I have been counting them; the days and the nights, the weeks, the months, the years. I have been waiting for this day.‘

I wasn‘t too crazy about the ending but I did like this story. It was dark, well written, and I absolutely loved the sea witch. Also, gorgeous cover art. Great for readers who love mermaids and fairytale retellings. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I read this one over a couple months last year. It is a very detailed, well written small town horror story that has some slight Salem‘s Lot vibes to it. This is a long read so I would only recommend it to those who like a lot of detail in their stories. Overall I enjoyed it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
