Currently Reading: Daughter of the Burning City by @amandafoody! I just finished The Disappearances yesterday, and I really enjoyed it! It was beautifully written, dark and creepy, in a way that reminded me a lot of Stephen King in the early days. What a lovely, compelling debut! Plus, I loved the way that Shakespeare was tied into the plot. Major literary points for Shakespeare references. Now on down the library stack I go. I ordered this because it was a recommended book of July, and just look at that cover! Magic! Mysterious forces! A family of misfits! What could go wrong? I was so tired last night I could only manage to read the first chapter, so I’ll probably just have to hold off until next week. What are you guys currently reading this week?
Currently Reading: Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer! I just finished Our Dark Duet by @veschwab and I’m dead. Dead. That book was killer. As I’ve said, haven’t I had enough literary pain this week people?! Come on. All the ugly crying and screaming! Now on down the library stack for me! I’ve been so excited for Spindle Fire. I’m a total sucker for fairy tale retellings, and Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorites! I’m about a third of the way through this, and I love the lush, gorgeous prose, as well as the sisters, Isbe and Aurora! Have you guys read any of Lexa Hillyer’s work? If so, what did you think? What are you guys currently reading this week?
