My bookoutlet black friday order finally came in and I just completely forgot to mention it on here.

Read this Week:

It was a pretty slow reading week, mainly cause I was working almost 40 hours due to the holiday. It was a lot of fun rereading Six of Crows, I love these characters and this story so much, honestly the main 6 outcasts could come and get it 😉 I gave it 5/5 stars. The HP cookbook was a Christmas gift and I actually read through the whole thing that morning marking the recipes that I knew I wanted to try out, we just went grocery shopping yesterday so I will be making some things out of it very soon. I hope you all had a great holiday and if you don’t celebrate hopefully you had a nice Tuesday off.

Read this Week:

The Dragon's Price (Transference, #1) The Truth About Martians The Afterlife of Holly Chase Masque of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death, #1)

I loved The Dragon’s Price so much – it casts the dragons as the evil in this world. About a princess who chooses the dragon over marriage and ends up becoming quite a badass with the help of a prince. The Truth About Martians was a good audiobook. It was set during the Roswell incident and I enjoyed going back in time a bit. There were some heavy issues that made the book a bit intense at times. The Afterlife of Holly Chase kept me in the Christmas mood all week. I sort of saw that ending coming though… but I really loved it. Masque of the Red Death was more intense than I thought it would be… lol – not that death and plagues are ever light hearted but the whole book had a dark, heavy feel to it.

Avid reader and gamer. Favorite thing in the entire world is Harry Potter. I read to escape that pesky thing we call reality.

  1. I am determined to read Six of Crows in 2019. I’ve wanted to for a while and so your review is just further evidence that I need to bump this up on my list. I would also love to read the HP cookbook. We’ve found some favorite recipes shared online and so we make those every time we do our marathon. But a cookbook would be fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing and have a wonderful reading week!

  2. I too loved Six of Crows and added the sequel, Crooked Kingdom to my must read list as soon as I finished it. The problem is that I listened to the first one and my library didn’t bring the next one in as an audiobook. I’ve found that when I start out listening to a series, the narrator’s voice can become an integral part of the experience, so I’ve put off getting to it. However, this year I am committed to reading Crooked Kingdom no matter what!
