Happy Monday Readers!

Here is what I’m reading this week-

I meant to write and post this much earlier in the day, but…. I couldn’t put my book down!

I finished reading Wintersong, by S Jae-Jones this evening… and oh boy did I have a great time reading this book. I can tell you right now…. I will most likely be starting this over again before week’s end. I read a library copy and I WILL be buying my own copy along with the sequel. I have never annotated a book before, but OMIGOSH was I dying to take a pencil to this book every time it reminded me of Labyrinth…or Jane Eyre… or Beauty and the Beast. There was even straight up Princess Bride “as you wish” thrown into the dialogue. I think I spent more time fangirl squealing than actually reading because… well… the Goblin King is my first love. What’s that Jareth? “Forget about the baby?” What baby?

I know, I know, I mashed up two different scenes there. I would post the entire movie in GIF if I could.

So yeah, I don’t know how much else I’ll be wanting to read because I am still on a high from this book that I am not ready to come down from. Just like An Enchantment of Ravens, I am so glad I didn’t let mediocre reviews keep me from reading for myself. I guess this is just my kind of romance. And honestly, watching Labyrinth from a very young age is most likely the reason why!

If I do read something else, It will probably be Fire Song by Adam Garnet Jones. I had read the first chapter of The Life and Death Parade, but this morning I got an email from NetGalley that my e-ARC request for Fire Song was approved by the publisher, and it comes out in a week or two… so…. I guess I’ll try to get to that one first.

Oh boy, already straying from my March TBR. Oh well… I’m not crying over it. I am just gonna enjoy reading what I want to read when I want to read it. I see the TBR more as a suggestion to myself than a strict MUST GET THESE DONE kind of thing.

What are you reading this week?

      1. Honestly, it wasn’t as good as Wintersong. It’s also pretty different in what themes it deals with and the settings. But it’s still a dark, atmospheric, compelling read. Just don’t go into it expecting it to be as amazing and you (probably) won’t be disappointed. I look forward to hearing what you think of it!
