Hmmm I would have to say that I’m going to surprise myself here and whip out Dead Man’s Blues. It’s rare we get an author who fixes all the little problems from the first book in the second but Celestin does it, and I’m so glad he does.Untitled design (7).png

That would have to be this guy right here. The Crying Machine by Greg Chivers, it hit me so much harder than I thought I would, I’m like in puppy love with it. I mean there’s a lot of others too but not getting as much notice so we’ll give TCM the love this time.Untitled design (6).png

I want to say Descendant of the Crane (like Michelle who tagged me!) because I mean who wants that book to end? But to give us some diversity in answers, I’m going with, Crown of Feathers because OMG that book!!!!Untitled design (8).png

I’ve been reading some dark books lately haha, I mean, like, I could use a nice fluffy break, but, I would say this was my sweetest read as of late! Untitled design (10).png

Uhhh….hmmm…I think I’ll have to have a repeat answer on this! If you’ve read this book then you KNOW, but if not, go read and find out if you like!Untitled design (12).png

Who am I tagging?

At this point I don’t know who hasn’t been tag, so please, take this tag as a gift and hoard it and use it, or if you need an easy fun tag to do before Monday and the holiday’s over, have at it, my friends!

Toodles, dears!

February Wrap-Up

Ugh, February is only a few days shorter than the other months but it feels like it just sped by in two weeks, amiright?

So I’ll put what books I read, include the links to their Goodreads if you’re interested, that way that saves this post from being HUGE. Anything with () Means I don’t have a blog review/it isn’t up yet, but the rest do and you’re welcome to click on my reviews page to go scope them out!

I’ll also talk about my February book haul and my March aspirations, I’m finishing a book tonight so I’ll reserve the review for that until March 1!

Seraphin


(Very whimsical children’s story/Children’s Picture Book, apparently someone else thought this had some Pedophile message…I didn’t really get that, but like they were just friends?? And also they never say that anyone is a kid?? Idk, maybe I’m misreading! It was just a man and his friend who built his house and a musical instrument and had tea together by the fire…..so…maybe I’m missing subtext, idk again. )
