On Monday I posted my ⭐⭐⭐★★ review of Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire.

Wednesday I shared a few books that have recently made it onto my wishlist.

Finished Reading


Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire

Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire ⭐⭐⭐★★ - I was a little bit disappointed, and you can check out my review here.

Currently Reading


The Tenant by Katrine Engberg Bitter Falls by Rachel Caine

I'm currently in the middle of both The Tenant by Katrine Engberg and Bitter Falls by Rachel Caine, and I'm loving them both. I hope to get some quality reading time with one of them today.

Recent Acquisitions


The Beauty by Aliya Whiteley Long Bright River by Liz Moore Watership Down (Watership Down #1) by Richard Adams

The Beauty by Aliya Whiteley - Toni from The Misadventures of a Reader persuaded me to change my mind (again) about wanting to read The Beauty. I decided to order a copy, and I'm excited about it.

Long Bright River by Liz Moore - This is one of my most anticipated books of January. It's solely off of the description and the marketing buzz, but I just have a feeling about it and I really want to read it. Unfortunately, I probably won't get to it until after Women in Horror Month next month.

Watership Down (Watership Down #1) by Richard Adams - I bought Watership Down as part of Audibles member sale they are having right now. I can't believe I've never read it.

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading this week or leave me some links!

  5. I’ve thought about reading The Beauty, but I haven’t because it sounds so bizarre. I read Watership Down a really long time ago. I liked it back then. I hope you have a great week!

  9. I'm hoping to snag The Tenant from my library sooner rather than later. I've never read Watership Down either. Maybe I should remedy that this year.
