It’s been quite a week here, so very hectic and with no signs of slowing down until maybe October. Which means that I didn’t get to read a whole lot, but I’m still happy with what I got done. I will start THIS WEEK a book giveaway, so keep an eye out for a post about it this week, and a Twitter announcement too!
I bought, as you see on the tweet above, the GORGEOUS editions of two books I’ve been really looking forward to reading!
My Readings This Week
I finished The Bird King! I actually enjoyed this SO MUCH, so if you want a fantasy book with a great main character, fast-paced and full of djinn and adventure, set in the times of Spanish Inquisition in the last reign that still has a sultan, this is it. I enjoyed this very much. The villain, who works with the Spanish Inquisition, is GREAT and I kind of loved/hated her. The scenes with her were the best.
I went on with Lock Every Door! I listened to this while going on a run at night alone and, let me say, maybe don’t do that. I was VERY tense. So, you know, great book.
I also started Girl of Fire! I’m not sure how I feel about it just yet, but I’m only 3% in, so lots of time to make up my mind. I love the premise, though – soft girl turned badass but still soft?? We need more of those.
I also started On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous and let me say… it’s maybe too early to tell, but it feels to me like a 5 star book. So beautifully written, sensitive and touching. I’m loving it so far.
