Currently Reading: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by @juliecdao! I just finished The Glass Spare in the tub last night, and I started this book before going to bed. Honestly, I’m absolutely entranced. The prose is gorgeous, the premise is exciting, (I am such a die-hard for Evil Queen retellings!) plus blood, gore, dark magic, and mysterious prophecies! I am loving this and I’m so happy that I finally am able to get to it. Shout out to my local library for hooking me up! What are you guys currently reading this week?

Currently Reading: The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano! Sorry, I’ve been so inactive recently, my friends; I had a death in the family last month and with the holidays right after that, I’ve been insanely busy. But never fear, I’m back! I’m all caught up in my reviews and I’m really ready to get back into the swing of things. I’ve had this in my library stack for a while now, and my husband was looking for something to read, so he asked me to read this before him to make sure it was good. I’m a little more than a hundred pages away from finishing it, and I’m really enjoying it! First: the cover–so pretty! And second of all: runaway royals! Dark, forbidden magic! Mysterious curses! A prince in disguise with motives of his own! I’m really liking this book and I hope it ends well; the only issue is that the worldbuilding and science are kind of vague and need some work. What are you guys currently reading this week?

Currently Reading: Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust! (Not my photo, only using for cover purposes.)  I finished Shimmer and Burn by Mary Taranta last week, and I’ve been working on this ever since. I’ve got about hundred pages left, and I’m enjoying it. A feminist retelling of Snow White, complete with magic, secrets, and betrayal? I am so on board. Shout out to my local library for getting it to me. What are you guys currently reading this weekend?

Currently Reading: Shimmer and Burn by Mary Taranta! (Not my photo, just using for cover purposes.) I just finished The Rattled Bones by S.M. Parker last night, and to say that I have mixed feelings is a major understatement. Now on down the library stack, I go! I’m really excited for this book. First of all, the cover is absolutely gorgeous, and I loved the premise. A magical kingdom drained of its resources, with a down on her luck heroine having to smuggle the stolen magic inside? Sold, sold, and sold again! I’m really hoping that this book is as wonderful as it seems. I just started it, so I’m not really sure how I feel about it yet. What are you guys currently reading this week?
