The main character Asha was well characterized. I found her to be a really strong, yet flawed character and watching her growth through the story was really lovely. I also enjoyed the world building and mythology surrounding the story. The interspersed fables were woven into the narrative really well and didn't take me out of the story like in some books. There were a few plot developments that I thought were done well and that surprised me.

Even the Darkest Stars | Heather Fawcett
post image

My favorite genre to read in the fall/winter months is fantasy. I finished One Dark Throne earlier this week and hope to get to these other new releases soon once I have finished my spooky books for October readathons. Thoughts on any of these?

#eventhedarkeststars #onedarkthrone #beforesheignites #invictus #fantasy #tbr

DuskAngelReads I just started Before She Ignites tonight. I‘m only about 15% in and pretty good son far. I really need to get a copy of One Dark Throne! I read book 1 a while a go and loved it! But keep forgetting to buy ODT! 2y

Here's part of my library haul this month! My library finally got in a bunch of YA new releases and I pounced on them. I am going to read either The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding or One of Us is Lying when I finish my current read. Thoughts of either of those?

An Enchantment of Ravens | Margaret Rogerson
post image
Pickpick

An Enchantment of Ravens is the Fae book I have always wanted. The Fae mythology is interesting and unique. The writing style of this book is the perfect amount of lyrical and flowery, without being obnoxious and the descriptions are so lush that I found myself easily able to picture everything. The characters are whimsical and well-fleshed out. My only complaint is it was too short, though only because I didn't want it to end. Five stars!

How to Hang a Witch | Adriana Mather

I am currently reading How to Hang A Witch by Adriana Mather for Boo!kish BINGO in the Life & Lit group on Facebook. It will help me cross off two squares: a book with witches and a book with ghosts. It is starting to really pick up and I like it! Anyone recommend a witch book that actually takes place during the Salem Witch trials? I am loving reading about witches! #readathon #howtohangawitch #spookybooks #lifeandlit

Jessrumely Oh, yes! I remember reading that in 10th grade! 2y
