Hellooooo!! I’ve missed you my friends. I haven’t been feeling all to well since I came down with a bad head cold last weekend, but I’m on the mend!!! That means I’m back with some bookish adventures to share with you. But first, I just wanted to let you all know that I did not turn into a werewolf last night, or any other supernatural being, with it being my birthday on Friday the 13th with a Full Harvest Moon. I am slightly disappointed with that outcome, but what can ya do! 😂
Books I’ve read since my last post :
- Dragon’s Oath : House of Quercus Novella by Eve Laird ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
- Binti (Binti #1) by Nnedi Okorafor ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
- Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children #2) by Seanan McGuire ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
- Blood Witch (Sweep #3) by Cate Tiernan ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
- Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
- Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
- The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
Keep an eye out for a few reviews from that list, some of them were undeniably review worthy!
My Current Reads!!!
I always have multiple books going at once, mostly because I’ve finally realized that I’m a huge mood reader. I never have any trouble with mixing up stories or characters, so I figure why not? Especially at the pace I devour books.
The first book I’m in process of reading is the infamous IT by Stephen King!
This is a long term TBR veteran of mine, and I’ve started but never finished twice. This time I loaned the audiobook from my Library on the Libby App and got about 64% of the way through it before my loan expired. Have no fear, or do if clowns aren’t your thing 🤡, but I do own a copy of IT in paperback and will be finishing the beast of a novel next weekend for a Readathon!!! So far I am really enjoying the story and the psychological suspense is to die for! 😜 *ta dum tiss*
Next is the 2nd book in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor, Days of Blood & Starlight. I am so happy to be back in the world of Chimera and see what happens with Karou and Akiva! 🥰
And Lastly, I was really needing a scary haunted house type book to ring in my 30th Birthday and fit with the rainy weather we are having, so I started a highly anticipated 2019 read for me… The Invited by Jennifer McMahon! The very first paragraph sucked me in and I’ve been grabbing minutes of reading when I can (I keep getting roped into decorating projects at the lake house 🙄😂).
So now that the bench for the front porch is put together and perfectly placed, I’m back in the chair with Baxter in my lap and ready to dive back in to this spooky story!!!
If you hear any howling at the moon this weekend you can ease your mind that it’s not me. But then again, maybe you should be concerned as to who the true culprit is of such eerie behavior. 😆
Happy Reading!! 🤓
