Throne of Glass | Sarah J. Maas
post image

Been in a bit of a reading rut and little one has been sick so haven‘t picked up a book in a few weeks. But I finally decided to start Throne of Glass. I‘m only on chapter 9 but it‘s definitely pulled me out of my rut and I‘m enjoying it very much. Can‘t wait to see where the story goes !

First time reading a true crime novel and safe to say it is not my style. I tried really hard to get into this book even thought listening to the audiobook would help me but I got to chapter 11 and I had to bail. The story itself is quite interesting I love a good angel of death story but I just found myself zoning out instead and thought it best to not force myself into a book I couldn‘t finish
@TheAromaofBooks #bookspin

EvieBee I think is a good start for true crime. But it will knock your socks off. The Kindle book is on sale for Women‘s Month. 🤗 4mo
Ciara_Rosey @EvieBee ooh thank you, I‘ll definitely check that out 4mo
TheAromaofBooks Sometimes a book just isn't a good match. Hopefully the next one is better!! 4mo
Lizpixie I have I‘ll Be Gone In The Dark on my shelves sweetie! Pretty sure I‘ve talked to you about it, when we were talking about you struggling with this one I think? 3mo

A little late uploading as my little one has been a bit sick this week but this is my list for #bookspin March. Can‘t wait to see if I can finish a couple more books this month 🤞🏻
@TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! Hope your little one is on the mend!! 4mo
Ciara_Rosey @TheAromaofBooks it‘s actually been a bit of a blessing because he has been sleeping more to get better I‘ve been able to lay with him on my chest and read but he is feeling so much better compared to last week ! 4mo
TheAromaofBooks Awwww it's so wonderful that you are able to give him the special cuddle time he needs!!! 4mo

I couldn‘t pick the second book up quick enough, after the ending of book 1 I needed to know what was gonna happen next. I managed to read this one in 2 days and I‘m quite proud of myself for that accomplishment.

With things now heating up between the two main characters, it seems to be a game of give and take till they get what they truely desire

Kingdom of the Wicked | Kerri Maniscalco

This book was a bit slow to begin with but once the story picked up it was hard to put down. The only downside I had was some moments it felt like she over explained simple things and at times it felt like it was more a cookbook the way she explained every step and ingredient in some of the cooking moments but overall a pick and would definitely read again

Finally finished The Magpie Society. I really enjoyed this read, I didn‘t find it as eventful as some of the books I normally read but was definitely a pick in my opinion. I‘m hoping the next book will be more exciting

So now onto my next book Kingdom of the Wicked already on chapter 12 and I‘m loving it so far

Finally finished just in time for the January prompt of Fairytale reading by @Charityann
I chose Mirror Mirror. A twisted retelling of Snow White in a world where Snow escapes her Evil stepmother only to find out she has poisoned her Prince Charming and she would do anything to save him.
I enjoyed reading this, I find it interesting to find different ways to retell such classic stories

I finished the first book in 4 days and I wish I had finished the second one sooner because it was just as good. Such an unexpected ending and now I can‘t wait to read the 3rd and final book in this trilogy! Highly recommend!

1. Yes as it‘s definitely easier to read on my phone while breastfeeding the little one 😅

2. Favourite is definitely my phone, small enough to hold in one hand and I can change the size of the font if I want it bigger
