  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

Current Reads

  • Bloodlaced by Courtney Maguire: I’m reading this book for a blog tour currently running for all the finalists of last year’s Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Awards. I have to say, I can see why this was a finalist because it is intensely readable. It has some dark themes and hard topics, so definitely check trigger warnings before jumping in. The way the author has built this world and the characters that populate it has me captivated. I’m flying through this, which is always a good sign! My full review will be coming soon, so keep an eye out for that.
  • One Dark Window by Rachel Gilling: I just picked this up as it’s my 12 friends, 12 recommendations read for the month and, wow, I’m already hooked! It’s a problem because I want to reading this and Bloodlaced at the same time 😂 The world is so rich in this book, so far, and I can already tell I’m going to love our main character, Elspeth. I’m so glad this was my pick for the month cause I feel like I’m going to love it!

Recently Finished

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
  • The Moth Keeper by K. O’Neill: Ahhhhh, this middle grade graphic novel was so cute! The artwork was stunning, the story touched my heart, and I adored all the characters. This was a great story that touched on topics like burnout in a way that is very accessible for a younger audience. This graphic novel has made me eager to consume K. O’Neill’s backlist faster than I have been. I need more of this art and the heart behind their novels! You can read my full review here.
  • The Last Tale of the Flower Bride by Roshani Chokshi: I picked this book up for various reasons, but the main one was because I loved the only other book I’ve read by this author, The Gilded Wolves. Thankfully, I was not disappointed with her adult debut! The writing in this was absolutely gorgeous. It was evocative and rich in a way that puts you in mind of a dark fairytale, though it was set in the real world. It made our mundane world seem magical. I could guess how it ended from nearly the beginning, but I still enjoyed the ride.

What’s Next

  • The Spite House by Johnny Compton: This is the pick for the Literally Dead Book Club hosted by BooksandLala over on Youtube. This sounds like a perfectly creepy haunted house story and, bonus points, it’s short! I’m behind on my reading this month so a short read would be excellent right now, haha. I’m looking forward to diving into this one.
  • Alliana, Girl of Dragons by Julie Abe: I was sent an ARC of this middle grade fantasy awhile ago and I feel bad that I still haven’t read it 😅 So I’ve stuck it on my Trope-ical Readathon TBR to try and inspire me to pick it up! The fact that it’s a middle grade is a bonus because those are usually fast reads for me. This is a retelling of the Japanese Cinderella story and I’m stoked to give it a read!
