It may be cold, windy, rainy, and unpleasant outside, but it's Friday! Thank goodness. Life has been so hectic lately, but I've still managed to sit down and read, as well as get some things scheduled in here. That hasn't left much room for free time though, oh well.
I have started a very casual project of reading some classic YA books that have helped build the genre into what it is today. Throne of Glass was the first book I read for this little project, and I have to admit that I assumed I’d hate it. I’m (now) very vocal about my grumpy feelings toward A Court of Thorns and Roses, the first book in Sarah J. Maas’s other series, and figured some of those themes I strongly disagreed with would carry over into Throne of Glass. So you can imagine my surprise when I actually found myself enjoying Throne of Glass! Is it brilliant? No, I don’t think so. But damn, is it a compulsive readable. I buddy read this with brilliant author, blogger, and YouTuber Josie Jaffrey and I think that was the best way for me to tackle this book. I’d highly recommend the audiobook because of the story’s pace and plot -- your house will never be cleaner.

Today, I'm sharing an extract from his new contemporary YA novel. He gives such an incredible voice to modern teens, and I couldn't recommend his books more highly.
Welcome to my stop on the Winter of the Witch blog tour! You may know by now how much I absolutely love the Winternight trilogy, and while I was so sad that the series is coming to and end, I knew I had to read The Winter of the Witch as soon as possible -- I had to know how it ended! Katherine Arden has knocked it out of the park once again with the conclusion to Vasya’s adventures.
Happy New Year everyone! I love this time of year when I can sit back and reflect on everything that has happened over the past 12 months, as well as make plans for the upcoming year. Last year I wrote a post about my 2018 reading resolutions, some of which I stuck to and others … Continue reading Reading Resolutions for 2019
