The Lady of the Mirrored Lake | Jennifer Ivy Walker

What a fantastic follow up to the first book! I loved the first one and was not disappointed by its sequel.

This book picks up where the first one left off and is full of nonstop action and adventure. It is just as faced paced as the previous book.

Hermes: Heavenly Days | Alice Charbin, Rachael Canepari

What a luxurious book! But that is no surprise considering this is a book from the iconic brand, Hermès. I should expect nothing less from the fashion house.

The book is beautifully made. It has a gorgeous linen cover in the brand‘s iconic orange. The pages inside are so thick. I don‘t think I‘ve ever seen a book with pages this thick.

The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven | Jennifer Ivy Walker

This book took me by surprise (in a good way)!

I loved how fast paced the book was. There was never a dull moment. Sometimes fantasy books can take a while to get into the story, but this book dove right in. I was flipping through the pages just wanting to know what would happen next.

🧵 Collection of 11 shorts stories, focuses on alcoholism, discrimination, gender inequality etc. Writing style of Sudha Murty is something which can make ordinary stories EXTRAORDINARY. 🧵

Prince of Song & Sea | Linsey Miller

I was really impressed with this retelling! I know a lot of people take issue with the Twisted Tales Disney series because it follows the movie too closely, so I was worried that this new Disney Prince series would be similar. Fortunately, this book does add a lot more to the movie. Eric gets an entire backstory which gives him much more depth.

I was very excited to read this book because I love the premise. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations.

My main critique is that the book is too long. The book is roughly 370 pages, but could have been whittled down to around 300. The book is very light on events that drive the plot forward.

Wonderful Women of the World | Laurie Halse Anderson, Kami Garcia, Cecil Castellucci, Lilliam Rivera

Since this is an anthology, there is something for everyone. There is a lot of diversity from the types of women to their accomplishments. The art styles also vary! I enjoyed seeing all the different types of art. All the contributors are either female or nonbinary which adds to the inspiring narrative of the collection.

Bloomsbury Girls: A Novel | Natalie Jenner

I loved the premise of the book, but it ultimately fell a little short of my expectations.

My main issue with the book is the pacing. It is very slow. Getting through the first half of the book was a struggle. Once I was about halfway through, the pace (luckily) picked up.
