As this is the first week of February I will look back on my January reads and select my favorites!
In my private life
What a week!!!
I am so, so ,so sorry that I didn’t reply to comments nor blog hopped in the week but I was non stop at the office even on my usual day off in the middle of the week!
I woke up at 5 am and was back home around 7 PM. That left me exhausted.
But the good news is next week is back to normal! Pfew!
The highlight of my week was painting new edges for one of my favorite books: Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries.
Talking about that book, I have been made aware this morning of an issue with the settings and some words and spelling used in the book. I am leaving a link to Micky’s Instagram post HERE if you are curious to read it.
Even after reading her post, I am still enamored with the book but find it sad that the publisher didn’t address the issue properly so far and understand Micky’s concern. Let’s hope that the sequel will take Micky’s advice into account.
As usual, I am leaving you with some reels that I published since last week.
The first is a wink to how Feyre must have felt after leaving Tamlin in A Court of Mist and Fury.
And the second is about me being unable to leave a book edge “bare” when I adored the story (and the cover is pretty).
January wrap-up (click on the graphic to read the post)
January has been an amazing month! I have read 12 books and plenty were 5 and some 6 stars or even all the stars!
Here are my favorites with the big winner at the bottom!
In romance, I loved Before I Let Go by Kennedy Ryan! This was a “realistic” romance with second chance for a couple of fourty something man and woman whose life has not been kind to them.
The I was on a thriller kick and read two amazing stories with lots of twists and turns, secrets and amazing writing! I already know that I’ll read more from these authors!
A big favorite was Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries. I just wished after having read Micky’s post (see above) that the author and certainly the editor and publishers eother cross checked some places and words, either told from the go that it was inspired by but that they took liberties as it was a fantasy world and story. Yet as I genuinely adored the book, I decided to keep it in my favorite of this month.
And my WINNER OF THE MONTH was in fact a reread! Years ago, I adored Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson and it became my favorite book with Making Faces by Amy Harmon. Well I am pleased to say that years after, it is still as amazing if not even more than the first time!
That’s it! Now I will go blog hop and reply to comments!
Thanks for reading!
