Paper and Fire & Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine

I read The Great Library series throughout 2019 and it has become one of my all-time favorite series. I figured that since I had only owned books one and five beforehand, I would get two books closer to owning the whole series. Does anyone else read a book from the library and buy it after because you loved it so much?

The Waking Forest by Alyssa Wees

This book has been on my list of books to buy since its release in March. I was drawn to this book by the amazing cover. Just look at it! Did anyone else notice the small details of the red stones?

A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

I bought this book due to the book community on Twitter. I have only heard amazing reviews and the ARC reviews so far of the sequel A Curse so Fierce and Broken have been positive too.

Now I Rise and Bright We Burn by Kiersten White

I’ve owned And I Darken for so long. When I saw the rest of the trilogy available, I made sense to complete the series. I really enjoy when I read a series that is already finished.

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

I recently received The Girl the Sea Gave Back in one of my recent Book of the Month boxes. I have had some confusion that maybe one of my viewers could clarify for me. Are these two books a series or is The Girl the Sea Gave Back a companion novel set in the same world?

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

My favorite genre is fantasy. This book is an East Asian influenced fantasy that sounds very interesting. I can’t wait to read this in 2020.

The Glass Spare and The Cursed Sea by Lauren Destefano

Owlcrate featured The Glass Spare in their November 2017 box. Even though I do not subscribe to Owlcrate because I never use 99% of the bookish goodies included. It is not worth the price for how little use I get from them.

10 books for about $39. Quite a good Black Friday haul if I say so. Are any of these books a favorite of yours?

Book of the Month Book Haul

Hey guys! I am excited to announce that I am now a Book of the Month affiliate. I will start doing a monthly haul to share my book selections. I will continue to attempt to read at least one BOTM selection, whether the current one or one from a past month.

November is a very busy month for new releases, as everyone can attest. Especially November 5th. Due to that, I chose to have two books in my BOTM box.

1. The Great Pretender: The Undercover Mission That Changed Our Understanding of Madness by Susannah Cahalan

IMG_7104Surprisingly, I have already read this book. This is a narrative nonfiction surrounding the famous study of David Rosenhan’s titled “On Being Sane in Insane Places.” Published in 1973, it had an essential impact on the changes we made to treat mental illness. While it moved the psychiatric system away from the problem of asylums, it led to the current problem we have of the lack of psychiatric beds to treat individuals.

2. The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White

IMG_6468This book, written by Kiersten White, is a new young adult fantasy series surrounding the legend of King Arthur. For more information, including a synopsis, check out it’s Goodreads page here.
