Pretty happy with my result from Book Riot's "Which Romance Duke is Your Perfect Match?" quiz. I loved this book! (Though I'd say Tavis is more than a bit grumpy! ?)

Beneath the Sugar Sky | Seanan McGuire

From the third volume in the Wayward Children series, which I just finished tonight. The book definitely isn't a standalone, since you need at least Every Heart a Doorway to make sense of it, but it makes a good addition to the ongoing series.

Got some reading done while I was waiting in my car the other day. It's been ages since I read the first Indexing collection, but it doesn't matter that I don't remember it. McGuire is such a stellar author that I got sucked back in right away.

A fun #romantsy read about an elementary school teacher who falls for her stripper neighbor after accidentally bringing home his bag from the laundry. I enjoyed the characters from the start and ended up reading the whole thing in a day. I own the next book in the series and will definitely pick it up sooner rather than later!

It's here!!!!! Alyssa Cole is one of my favorite romance authors and I've been eagerly awaiting the latest in her Reluctant Royals series, which just came out today. And, as luck would have it, my reading schedule is open! Can't wait to dive right in. #romantsy

Finished this memoir a few days ago. It was my first time reading Jesmyn Ward, but her writing was so evocative that I'm interested to try some of her fiction in the future.

There hasn't been a single entry in Alyssa Cole's Reluctant Royals series that I haven't loved, and this novella is no exception. Cole has this way of writing with authenticity that seems effortless, but there's no mistaking how much care she puts into her work.

This novella ties into the series in ways that will make more sense to someone who has read the books (particularly A Duke By Default), so I'd encourage new readers to start there first.

The Cold Is in Her Bones | Peternelle van Arsdale
post image
Pickpick

All her life, Milla has been raised under the constant threat of demons by parents who barely seem to love her. Things brighten when Iris comes to live on the neighboring farm, but Milla soon learns there's much more going on than she knows. A story about vengeance, fear, legacies, & love that's inspired by (but not a direct retelling of) the myth of Medusa. This book could've stood a little fleshing out in places, but I enjoyed it all the same!

Gunpowder Alchemy | Jeannie Lin
post image
Pickpick

If, like me, all steampunk is starting to feel a little same-y to you, I'd recommend giving Gunpowder Alchemy a shot. It's set in China, and centers on themes of family, loyalty, Imperialism, and tradition vs innovation. There's adventure, peril, and a hint of romance (but not Romance, if you catch my drift) that takes second place to the action in the story. I've already bought the sequel and I'm looking forward to having the chance to read it.

1. Still slogging through the same books I've been reading all month! But I'm SO CLOSE to being done with Stamped from the Beginning & I hope to reach the end this week.

2. Most of my reading (easily 75% or more) is done through ebooks, but I do love holding a physical book in my hands. Paperbacks are probably my fave.

3. Paradise Lost. I don't think I read a word of it, in fact! No idea how I passed that part of class.

This is a hell of a book. Everything about it is complex—from the world-building to the characters to the plot itself—and it's a little bit like unwrapping layer after layer of a package when you have no idea what lays at the core. I can't wait to find out, though!

1. Teleport! It would be so easy to pop to the store when I need a couple quick items. Or to the library for more books!

2. Bone Map is a short book of poetry filled with visual and evocative language.

3. Mostly reading related ones! And, generally, to work on being healthier.

4. Fake or Fortune? which is about trying to investigate/verify the history of artwork. There are only a few episodes, but they're fascinating!

A Kiss for Midwinter | Courtney Milan
post image

Jonas, the hero in this romance novella, isn't exactly a #grinch, but he is jaded, sarcastic, and not overly fond of Christmas. The heroine, Lydia, is his opposite. The story centers around a wager about whether her cheerful nature can withstand his doctor's rounds, with a kiss as the prize. As with many of her tales, Milan fills this romance with emotional depth and that makes this more than just a simple Christmas-themed story. #SeasonsReadings

Centique I love Courtney Milan and thought this one was lovely too! 7mo

This magical book is one of my favorites. Josey, one of the main characters, has a serious sweet tooth, but she has to hide it from her overbearing mother. Throughout the course of the novel she learns to stand up for herself, and finds a pretty sweet life waiting for her when she does. Filled with just a pinch of the fantastic (like books that appear just when you need them, which sounds lovely to me) and romance too. #candyland #SeasonsReadings

Clockwork Boys | T Kingfisher

With just 30 minutes left in November I squeezed one last read into the month!

I love T Kingfisher/Ursula Vernon's works & this book was no exception. She has a particularly deft hand when it comes to characters, making them all feel like real and interesting people. A lot of this novel's action takes place on the road. In a different author's hands that might've dragged, but I was so hooked that I sped through it in two days. Onto the next!

Keeper of the Bees | Meg Kassel
post image
Pickpick

Back when PageHabit was a thing, it featured Meg Kassel's Blackbird of the Gallows. I'm so glad it did, because otherwise I might've missed out on an author who is fast becoming a fave of mine.

This isn't a direct sequel to Blackbird, but it uses the worldbuilding in the 1st book as foundation. The story is a little bit Beauty & the Beast, and it's also about being soft even when the world hurts. It's about redemption, hope, courage, and love.

Squidapus Or maybe Beauty and the Beest. I'm not sorry. 8mo

I am one of those people who is terrible at keeping up with ongoing series. In fact, Rivers of London is the only one that I've managed to read every volume of. With that in mind:

Lies Sleeping builds nicely on what's come before, and is focused almost entirely on the overarching plot of the series. There's a lot of payoff in this book and, in my opinion, it been worth waiting for. I can't wait to see where the series goes next!
