Relaxing on my balcony with some fruit (cherries and plums! 🍒) and books. I just paid my last ever school bill for my upcoming final semester of grad school. I graduate in December with my Masters in Library and Information Science. Feeling super anxious because I am broke AF but also feeling thankful thinking about how far I've come. 💕

Got about 100 pages in and couldn‘t take it anymore. When I have to be told—through pages of info-dump—why the thing that needs to be saved is of paramount importance, my mind checks out. Maybe I‘m missing out on an amazing series, but I couldn‘t stand it any longer.

Fun folkloric fantasy. Celtic magic and whatnot. Not supremely artistic, but definitely entertaining enough. I'll be moving on to the second of the trilogy next.

P.S. my brother has loved this copy well.

Perfect storm of things is causing me to be overwhelmed and on the edge. Taking lunch to read a little and go to the used book store down the street for some retail therapy. I forgot how much I enjoy Lawheafd- maybe I'll see if the store has some.

LauraBrook Is this part of a series? I've only read the first two of the Robin Hood trilogy, and I really like them! What else would you recommend? 2y
Cinfhen Marshmallow musketeers?!? Yum😋 2y
BethM Right @Cinfhen - my coworker had them! @LauraBrook this is the first book in a trilogy- its excellent so far. I've also read his Pendragon trilogy which is excellent and apparently will be stacking the Robin Hood one lol. I'm into fantasy, even better if it's Arthurian or Celtic, and he has at least one other Celtic trilogy I'm going to look at, but the store only had book 2 and 3. 2y

LauraBrook @BethM Good to know, thank you! I've just started reading SF/F more on the last couple of years, so even though I might know authors or titles, I don't have a reference point at all. Will be checking out more of his stuff for sure! 2y
BethM @LauraBrook that's my preferred genre so hit me up with questions! 2y
BethM Also I stand corrected Pendragon had 5 books. 2y
LauraBrook @BethM I will - hope you don't regret offering! 😉😉😉 2y
