I am currently planning my wedding, which means I’m trying not to spend excessive amounts of money on books...You can probably guess how well that’s working out. I have been relying heavily on a free e-book email list to get me through this. Unfortunately, those free e-books are usually part of a series with the potential for me to get hooked and then have to spend money to discover what happens next. Thankfully, the entire Twilight Court series, which Fairy Struck initiates, is available through my Kindle Unlimited subscription!
It’s October and I am SO EXCITED because it means that spooky season is in full swing! I’ve had my house decorated for Halloween since Labor Day and I am determined to enjoy all of the awesomeness that this fall has to offer. So, of course, my book choices are going to reflect the time of year. I’m not much of a horror person - I leave the gruesome and macabre to Jeriann - but I loooooooove me some fantasy. Especially urban fantasy. Since the sequel to Hypnos hasn’t been released yet (dangit) and the next Patricia Briggs book isn’t out until March 2021, I went with something new.
Is anyone else really really really sad that superhero movies have delayed their release dates until after this pandemic situation calms down more? Because I’m over here going absolutely crazy waiting for a new superhero movie to obsess over. So, when I received an email from Amazon Kindle Unlimited about Andrea Vernon and the Corporation for Ultra Human Protection, I jumped on it.
I came across this Cinderella retelling as an ad on BookBub, one of the lists I get emailed to me periodically. I clicked on it because I wanted a closer look at the cover art. I bought it because of the description. I read the whole series, because I had to find out what happens next. To explain The Memory Thief, I have to set the stage a bit...
If you read my review of Hypnos, you know that I can be picky about adult urban fantasy books. There are concepts that I have no interest in exploring and there are a lot of plotlines that I consider overdone and don’t really want to read over and over. As a result, I rarely go looking for urban fantasy novels. Instead, I wait to find them in the wild.
As I mentioned before, I’m using October as an excuse to read all of the fantasy books that are cluttering up my to-read list. I was really excited to include The Vine Witch in the list of books I set aside to review for October because it’s written by a new author! Any chance I get to read new authors (and find new books/series to obsess over), I’m taking it.
Since we started this blog in October and our inaugural post was the first book in the Mercy Thompson series, we thought it would be fun to review another Patricia Briggs book for our anniversary.
It’s October and in honor of the spookiest month of the year, I’ve decided to read a bunch of fantasy novels. Because my last review was an Adult Urban Fantasy (LINK to Hypnos), I decided to switch things up and read a Young Adult Fantasy next. Bound by Duty is the first book in a short series (yes, I read all three) about the main character, Amelia.
Today is International Podcast Day! I don’t listen to a ton of podcasts, but I did know that there are several podcasts that are based on books, have books based on them, or talk about book-related topics.
