I would say that I had a decent reading week. The Shadowglass was fantastic, I didn’t really expect to cry but I did. I gave it 5/5. Good Omens was unfortunately not as good as I was expecting it to be. Don’t get me wrong it is good and hilarious but for whatever reason I just expected more from it. I gave 3.5/5. Finally The Red Scrolls of Magic was without a doubt my favorite thing I read and my only gripe is that it is way shorter than I would like it to be. 5/5.

Read this Week:

Mera: Tidebreaker In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children, #4) Lety Out Loud The Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight Trilogy, #1)

When I Arrived at the Castle My Jasper June Fairest, Volume 3: The Return of the Maharaja This Song Will Save Your Life

Mera: Tidebreaker was a fun graphic novel – not sure I loved the instalove plot line but… Mera is definitely a badass and I enjoyed learning more about her and her world. In an Absent Dream was another cool edition to the Wayward Children stories and I really enjoyed it on audio. Lety Out Loud was such a touching story about overcoming problems and helping out at a shelter, it was so sweet it made me cry. The Bear and the Nightingale was so-so I’ll admit not being interested for about half the book while nothing happened but back story. Not sure I’ll continue on in the series. When I Arrived at the Castle was perfect and short and just a thrilling horror story in graphic form. My Jasper June was a sweet story as well, about confronting grief and friendship. I’m not sure I loved the ending but overall a great MG novel. Fairest: The Return of the Maharaja was quite an interesting story – not sure if I was supposed to be cheering for or against Charming as he’s a bit of character… I really enjoyed the story though and how it tied into the Fables world. This Song Will Save Your Life is a stunning novel about finding something to live for and I really loved the audiobook.
