Starting this one for Thursday‘s book club. While I normally might not finish it this late, I am flying home tomorrow so I‘ll have a good long time in the airport and in the air to get through it.

Thanks Lisa & Brittany for the tags 😊 #Two4Tuesday

1️⃣ Gallowglass. He just makes the last two books in the trilogy so good. He‘s intelligent, emotional, tender, and loyal. I really hope Deb Harkness gets to write his book 🙏🏻

2️⃣ Strong supporting character always adds so much color & depth to a story.

I spent most of today reading this book. A fairy tale set in an England at the beginning of the 20th century in a village still following the old ways. The nearby swamp is full of dangerous beings who steal hands and try to lure people to their deaths. The story begins with Briony‘s confession at her trial as a witch. I couldn‘t put it down because I had to know the ending. But it‘s a bit too much Brothers Grimm and not enough Disney

“Listen, happy endings is fine if they turn out happy,” said Granny, glaring at the sky. “But you can‘t make ‘em for other people. Like the only way you could make a happy marriage is by cuttin‘ their heads off as soon as they say ‘I do‘, yes? You can‘t make happiness…”

This one is definitely my fave book of Rohald Dahl, next to the chocolate factory. Read it for the first time though i had watched the movies prior and liked them also.

I ship Meiner and Dayna, but this book leaves a loooooot unanswered. Hoping for a sequel, because there were several interesting plotlines that were just…dropped. Also, I would consider this book urban fantasy (throwing spells with one hand and texting with the other) but the cover gives me historical fiction vibes lol.

Not my favorite book or character, but Eve grew on me (though surprisingly, Kristoff is my favorite here). The story felt too long, with at least one too many steps. It‘s a solid installment but not a great one. This is my May #doublespin and one for #seriesread2022

I think the story hit it's stride better here. There is a quick appearance of some of the knitting club and we are introduced to Biddy O'Donnell. I can't wait to see what the author does with her character. I also love the friendships developing. If I have a minor complaint then it would be that so far it doesn't really involve that much of the Vampire Book Club part of the title. I do love Quinn's character though and the mysteries.
