Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes, Michelle RowenRebel Spring (Falling Kingdoms #2) by Morgan Rhodes, Michelle Rowen

Continuing this book and series with the (really awesome) Falling Kingdoms Fantasy League group. This week we covered chapters 6 – 10. So far I am enjoying this book a lot more than book one. Looking forward to more fun predictions and discussions over the course of the next few weeks!


 

The Great Hunt by Robert JordanThe Great Hunt (The Wheel of Time #2) by Robert Jordan

Continuing this series with book two. This week I was able to finally read past the 70% mark! Unfortunately I have to return it to the library today, and I will not be able to get it back in my hands for several more weeks to finish


Long May She Reign by Rhiannon thomasLong May She Reign by Rhiannon Thomas

This week I started Long May She Reign and was immediately captivated. The writing is decent and the story is good. I am around the 50% mark on this book right now and, while still enjoying it, I have reached a slight lull. I’m hoping to finish this one up in the next day or two!


The Black Witch by Laurie ForestThe Black Witch (The Black Witch #1) by Laurie Forest

This week I started The Black Witch with a few fellow reviewers and bloggers ( Bentley @ Book Bastion and Solomon @ The Bookish King, check them out!). I have not been able to delve very far into this book yet, but so far I am really enjoying it! There has been a lot of recent controversy over this book, and so far from my own experience and research, this controversy has been completely misrepresented and unwarranted.


The Copper Promise by Jen WilliamsThe Copper Promise (The Copper Cat #1) by Jen Williams

I started reading The Copper Promise with a fellow GR friend and reviewer (Follow her Instagram @haileesbooksandstuff). Again, I have not gotten very far into this book, but so far there is a lot of snark, a lot of brutal stuff, and I’m getting major Indiana Jones vibes … so basically ALL GREAT THINGS! I am very much looking forward to reading more of this story over the following week.


Finished Reading

This week has been a busy week for STARTING books … not so much for finishing them.

Then and Always by Dani AtkinsThen and Always by Dani Atkins

I was able to audiobook this book in a little less than 4 hours time. It is a really touching and emotional love story that I was very happy to experience. A quick easy read and the perfect contemporary to break up the massive amount of fantasy reads I currently have running. This book got a 3.5/5 stars rating from me. Read the full review here.

 

 


NetGalley Approval

The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly RingleThe Goblins of Bellwater

This week I received my first NetGalley ARC approval and for a book I have been extremely excited about reading because 1) Goblins and 2) THAT COVER IS GORGEOUS!

(Excerpt from Goodreads Synopsis): A contemporary romance inspired by Christina Rossetti’s eerie, sensual poem, “Goblin Market.”

Four neighbors encounter sinister enchantments and a magical path to love in a small, modern-day Puget Sound town, where a fae realm hides in the woods and waters…


Weekly Outlook

This next week I will be continuing with my Currently Reading list and hopefully starting Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones and The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle. Also looking forward to catching up a little on TOO many of my reviews left unwritten.

My daughter will be finishing up her last few days of school this week, so I am hoping to get the family out on some outdoor adventures. We are ready for summer!

As always, I wish everyone a happy and enjoyable week!
