My #BotM #BookMail showed up this morning! I finished the last reading challenge and got my Shelf Slayer prize, picked Black Cake as my Book of the Year reward (it sounds so good!), and chose two books that I know I'll enjoy. Plus they sent cute holiday stickers! 🥰

I would listen to Moira Quirk read the phone book, she's such a phenomenal performer! This was an enjoyable story. Part fantasy magic, part heist story, part light political drama... with a corgi who might (or might not) be a spy for the fae. I really appreciated that the romance was very subtle and that it was a solid standalone novel (though I'd totally read a spin off novel following the reformation of the Thieves Guild).

I loved 'The Wolf and the Woodsman', so when I heard there was going to be a new book set much later in the same universe I was really excited.

I... really didn't care for this one. I didn't particularly like any of the characters and found a lot of it unnecessarily erotic. I don't mind sex scenes, but I swear every third page was the main character talking about her nipples. 😅😬

The Absolute Sandman | Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth
post image

It's going into show season, so we've been super busy, but I have managed to get some reading done. Right now I'm re-reading the Sandman books before I watch the show.

Our big news is that we accidentally got a new reading buddy. This is Crumpet, a year old tordico stray that had decided being a house cat is awesome. She's already joined #KAL and enjoys napping on my arm when I'm trying to read, and annoying her brothers.

I'm not sure what I expected, but it wasn't this. It's a story of two friends that spans 30 years, a business, relationships, and a hell of a lot of video games. It's dense and heavy at time, but also lovely and hopeful. The last quarter of the book hit with such an emotional punch that it actually left me breathless. I'm going to be thinking about this one for a long time.

Has anyone else been so stressed out the last few days that they're having trouble reading? I've sat down with this book a dozen times and have still only made it 20 pages in. 😕

Reading is supposed to be my escape from all of this...

Kayla.Adriena I feel like that all the time Gondor Girl! A lot of people read to relax but I can't read unless I AM relaxed. Otherwise I just read the same sentence over and over. When I feel like this I try to do another activity like a puzzle, going outside, watch a favorite movie that I've seen a million times. Anyway you are not alone! 5mo
GondorGirl @Kayla.Adriena I've been playing farm Sim video games. They're super low stress and repetitive, which makes them ideal for zoning out to. 5mo
LiteraryinLawrence I relate too! I feel like I want to read for comfort but sometimes can‘t focus even if I have time. It‘s frustrating! 5mo
themonaisa So relieved to hear I‘m not the only one!! It‘s been really hard to get through any books these past 2-3 weeks; I‘ve tried switching books, thinking it was just the content, but nope! It‘s the ✨endless stress✨ *sigh!* We‘ll get through this soon! Sending you all strength! (edited) 5mo

What snacks do you like to eat while reading?

I eat candy canes all year along and they make a great reading snack. They're sweet, minty, and I like how they can be treated like hard candy OR a chewy treat.

mdm139 Popcorn is my favorite snack, but I also keep candy canes year round and gingerbread cookies. 6mo

For our anniversary my partner and I went to the Toledo Friends of the Library sale (where I got most of these) and then we drove up to Dawntreader in Ann Arbor (where I got Carry Me Like Water). Then we had nice lunch and wandered around A2 playing Pokemon Go. We stopped at B&N on the way home and picked up the air frying cookbook, because we were gifted one a month ago and still have no idea what to do with it. 😅

This was, by far, one of the best romances I've read and I think Reality Show Romance might be a new favorite trope.

When Dahlia (a divorced aspiring writer) and London (a non-binary sound engineer) meet as contestants on a reality cooking show things get a little spicy.

It was adorable and funny, with believable characters, just enough spice, and a strong subplot about pronouns and proper gendering.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Kaikeyi is another book where a woman tries to have agency over her life and to help other women, but gets fucked over by both men and gods. It was beautiful and fascinating, and made me do some research into the actual story is based on.

If you have trouble with it I'd suggest the audiobook- it really helped me separate all the characters and unfamiliar words.

If you like your fairytales dark and your heroes unlikely Kingfisher is the author for you.

The 30-something third daughter (and almost nun) of a tiny nation goes on an impossible quest to save her sister from an abusive husband. Along the way she creates a bone dog, visits a goblin market, enlists the help of a dust-wife (and her demon chicken), and befriends her fairy godmother (who might actually be the most wicked of them all).

Pickpick

I listened to this entire book today and I feel sorry of wrecked over it. It takes place in a small town, over the course of one year. There is no central narrator and the chapters jump around between a dozen different people. It's beautifully written, painful at times, but ultimately hopeful and lovely. A five star read.

I'll add a spoiler comment with some trigger warnings.
