Happy Friday, all! Yet again, we are in a time slip. I can't believe September is nearly over! This month's reading is still going pretty poorly, however I have made some progress. Check it out!
I confess that I’m not much of a graphic novel reader, however sometimes one comes along that captures my interest. I don’t often have a huge amount to say about graphic novels, so I’m doing two mini reviews of two very different books today!
Happy Friday, all! I am not entirely sure where the first half of September went -- it sort of swirled into a black hole and it's suddenly the middle of the month. How does that even happen?
I rarely have difficulty reviewing book, regardless of how much I love or dislike it. However, The Ten Thousand Doors of January has me stumped and speechless! I’m not sure that I’ll be able to capture how fantastic this debut novel is, but I’ll do my best.
City of Lies had been languishing on my TBR since its release last year. Despite hearing amazing things about this book, I just never seemed to have the time to read it. I finally decided to pick up the audiobook with a spare Audible credit and I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner! Part political fantasy, part closed-room mystery, City of Lies is a gorgeous tale of family, betrayal, and war.
I absolutely loved Purcell’s first Gothic novel, The Silent Companions, but was disappointed in the second, The Corset. Naturally, I was very curious about Bone China, her latest book, to see if it would recapture everything I loved about The Silent Companions. It absolutely did -- Bone China is a fantastic addition to her growing repertoire of Gothic fiction.
