Alexis: About a month ago, I requested three books from the library, and of course they all came around the same time!
- Nocturna by Maya Motayne
- The Editor by Steven Rowley
- The Scent Keeper by Erica Bauermeister
I already started Nocturna, and I can’t wait to read the other two!
On a different note, what’s your favorite Starbucks drink? I usually go for a matcha latte with almond milk, but the espresso machine was down, so I settled for a green tea frappuccino.
Check out the books below!
Alexis: Happy Friday, everyone!
Yesterday, I got an email that two of my requested library book were ready to be picked up: Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis, and Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi.
These are two of my most highly-anticipated reads, and I waited over a month for them.
I sat down and binged all of Five Feet Apart yesterday, so look out for a review tomorrow.
I can’t wait to dig into Gingerbread, because I have a feeling I’m going to love it!
Alexis: The little snow that we got turned into mush and then rain, so I was able to get my library books! Here’s a library haul part 2.
- Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
- The Afterlife by Thomas Pierce
- Caraval by Stephanie Garber
- The River of Doubt by Candice Millard
For a change of pace, I’m intersecting my fantasy reads with some different genres! Even though I love fantasy and YA fantasy, I’m tired of the same tropes being recycled (I’m looking at you, love triangle). Sometimes I need to take a break and read something different.
Library haul time! These are some of my most anticipated reads on my #tbr list.
- Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
- Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
- The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge
- In the Midst of Winter by Isabel Allende
Anna and I went to a coffee shop and got some work and writing done today. And then we went to Ulta, my second favorite store after Barnes and Noble.
I’m starting with In the Midst of Winter since it’s currently 28 degrees outside and dropping! I’ve always loved Isabel Allende’s writing style and I’m enjoying the beginning of the book.
