I didn‘t love Royal Assassin quite as much as I enjoyed Assassin‘s Apprentice. I think it suffered from a little bit of second book syndrome. And Fitz got on my nerves. But I still enjoyed the atmosphere and setting. Fitz is still young here so there‘s room for development. I‘m still going to continue the series but I‘m going to take a break to start book three with a fresh perspective.

Cytonic | Brandon Sanderson
post image
Pickpick

Cytonic has been on my shelf for several years and I finally read it! I think this is the only Brandon Sanderson book that I didn‘t absolutely love. I liked it, don‘t get me wrong, but it just didn‘t hook me like the other books did. I think the departure from the characters I love took me out of the story. But they did make an appearance toward the end of the book, so it gives me hope for Defiant. I‘m interested to see how this series wraps up.

The Last Mrs. Parrish | Liv Constantine
post image
Pickpick

I finally finished a book! This month has been a very slow reading month thanks to a funky reading slump but I finished The Last Mrs. Parrish the other night and let me tell you it shook me to the core. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and it made me angry all at the same time. But trust me that‘s the point. These characters are some of the most dislikable characters that I‘ve come across and somehow that made me like the story even more.

The Duke And I | Julia Quinn
post image
Mehso-so

I finished The Duke and I back in February and I totally forgot to review it until today. I enjoyed this book but I don‘t think I enjoyed it enough to finish the series. I liked the fake dating trope. I thought that was executed well but when the relationship started for real there was sooo much miscommunication. I just didn‘t enjoy that. I did love the Bridgerton family though. They were a lot of fun.

One of my favorite genres that I studied in college was the Southern Lit genre. Obviously, I might be biased because I‘m from the American South. But in my personal experience I‘ve found it to be one of the most atmospheric genres around.

So today on the blog I wanted to take a second and share some of my favorite Southern Lit books. This post is just skimming the top of the genre so I‘ll probably have a part two up sometime in the near future.

Hi. Yes. It is time for my March 2024 tbr. Usually, when I make these, I have some idea of what I want to read for the month. Not this time. And usually, when I make my tbrs I have cute little pictures to go with. Also, not this time. It‘s raining like crazy here and frankly I have no clue what I want to read. So honestly, I‘m just going to wing it.

Black Sheep was the perfect answer to my book hangover that Rosemary‘s Baby caused. Honestly, it had some of the same vibes as Rosemary‘s Baby. and I enjoyed that immensely. I‘m not going too deep into this because I think you need to go in without expecting anything.This book was perfection. And I‘m afraid to admit it but I might have liked it even better than Cackle.

Bone White | Ronald Malfi

After reading Rosemary‘s Baby I have been in a horror mood. Bone White is a great winter read. I wish I had read it a couple of months earlier to enhance the atmosphere a little. I‘m not going to go into too much detail about this one because it‘s better if you go in not expecting anything. But overall I had a good time with it.

My first five star book of the year came from an unexpected contender. I picked up Rosemary‘s Baby on a whim and I was hooked immediately. It check all the boxes that I look for in a thriller. Plus, the ending was totally unexpected. But now I‘m in a total book hangover. 😅

I‘ve had my eye on the Creature Feature. So, it was one of the first things I grabbed when I got it. This collection was all over the place. I enjoyed a few of the stories but then there were several I really didn‘t like. They‘re short books so I‘m glad I gave it a try, but overall, I think this collection was a miss for me.

I did it guys! I finally read Tress of the Emerald Sea and I really enjoyed it. I loved the charm that Tress brought to the story and I love that Hoid was the narrator. The humor in this one was unmatched and the Cosmere Easter eggs made it even better. I hope all of the Secret Projects are this good!

Hi. It‘s February. I forgot that yesterday was the last day of January. If that‘s any indication of how this year is going to go, then I better get ready for a wild ride. Anyhow, let‘s get to my January 2024 wrap up.

I read a few good books and a few duds. So I‘m hoping February is a better reading month all around.

We went to The Smoky Mountains this weekend. One of my favorite stops to make in Pigeon Forge is the Book Warehouse. It‘s the first bookstore I ever remember visiting. It helped to fuel this obsession. So, it‘s kind of full circle to be writing a post about the place that helped spark this love of reading. I‘m so excited to get to do this Book Warehouse Book Haul.

Full haul here: https://wildwoodreads.com/2024/01/30/book-warehouse-book-haul/

SarahBookInterrupted I had a similar experience. On the way to my grandparents who lived in the middle of nowhere, in a forest. There was a bookstore warehouse on the way also with nothing around it. No town, the forest would open up and we‘d see the bookstore. We knew we were getting close to their house and my mom always stopped and each of us kids could get a book. We loved it!! Enjoy your haul and happy memories. You brought back mine. 6mo

I finally finished my first book of 2024. Emily Wilde‘s Encyclopedia of Faires was a light and airy read. I loved the characters and the lore in the story as well. Poe is the best character and you will not convince me otherwise.
The only thing I didn‘t completely love was the romance. It fell a little flat for me. But overall, I had a good time with this one.

The Puzzle Master took off from the very beginning and didn‘t slow down. It was a great atmospheric read that‘s perfect for this time of year.

My main problem with this one was that the author just tried to do a little too much in one story. But other than that it was a quick, fun read.

All Hallows: A Novel | Christopher Golden

And just like that I‘m posting the last review of spooky season. All Hallows was a fun book to read on Halloween night. It had all of the nostalgic Halloween vibes.

However, it did read a bit more like a domestic thriller than a horror I did enjoy it but by the time the monster came around I had lost a little bit of interest. Overall, I‘d probably give it about a three star rating. But it‘s definitely one to add to your list for next Halloween.

Frankenstein | Mary Shelly

It‘s no secret that Frankenstein is more of a study on the horrors of humanity than anything else, but I still wish it had focused more on the creation of the monster. The tension just wasn‘t there. Essentially, he said I built a monster. Then the next sentence was I lost the monster. I just didn‘t feel connected to the plot. It did like the monsters monologue but at that point I had already checked out and lost interest.

Dark Harvest | Norman Partridge
post image
Mehso-so

Dark Harvest had all the right vibes but you have to suspend your belief for this one. The author never really explains what‘s happening. And that‘s where I got lost. I want to know why this pumpkin walks around. If the Harvest Guild controls the town with dark magic say that. Spill that spooky gossip. That‘s what I crave. Don‘t just build something up and then just end it. That takes half of the fun away.I would have definitely liked more depth.

TEArificbooks In the movie it explains that if they don‘t hunt the pumpkin monster down a huge dust storm comes and destroys their fields for 9 years. But they have healthy abundant crops if they are successful. (edited) 9mo
AVChrista I just watched the movie and it was fine, worth watching once. It also doesn‘t get into the why, it just happens. Reminds me of Shirley Jackson‘s “The Lottery”. 9mo

Hell Bent was one of my most anticipated books of the year but unfortunately I didn‘t love it as much as I hoped I would. There was just too long of a gap from when Ninth House first released (Oct 2019) to now. My reading taste has changed a lot so I just didn‘t love this as much as I once would have. However, it‘s still very atmospheric so if you‘re looking for an occult dark academic book for the fall you might want to check this series out

It‘s been a minute since I‘ve done a recipe taste test on the blog and I don‘t know why. They‘re some of my favorite posts to do. And I knew when I got a copy of Baking Yesteryear I needed to do one.

So I spend the day making pecan dainties. They‘re a three ingredient cookie and are super easy to make. I‘ll definitely be making them again.

Fourth Wing | Rebecca Yarros
post image

I read a big chunk of Fourth Wing this weekend. I‘m really enjoying. And I‘ve enjoyed diving back into the romantasy genre. I think it‘s finally time for me to give House of Sky and Breath another chance. I think I‘ll pick it up after I finish up this one up.

Anyhow, how was your weekend? Did you read anything fun?
