Weekly Reading Round-Up

There is so much newness surrounding this pandemic that so often I’ve reverted to familiarity when it comes to what I read. Seeking comfort in the known. Embracing our new normal I stepped out of the familiar this week and we tried a whole bunch of new to us authors, and we’re quite happy we did.

A Fall from Grace by Jennie Goutet 41STVAFy50L

I adored this book. With mulit-faceted characters and a unique plot. I honestly wouldn’t have picked up this book based on the book blurb alone, it sounds like an everyday regency romance. I however kept hearing praise about the book and author and taking advise of others I jumped right in. I was so pleasantly surprised. The details of each character and the turns in the story made for a wonderfully engaging story. I may have found a new favorite author.

The Lilac Plague by Kristin J. Dawson51TjyOAoFhL

This is the first book in a young adult, high adventure fantasy series. I felt like the language and world took a bit of getting used to, but the author builds her world well pulling you in to the fantasy and magic. The adventure and mystery were a little vague in parts, but the flashbacks given in journal form were a really good addition that keeps you guessing and engaged. If you liked Melanie Cellier’s Spoken Mage series (which we do 🙂 ), this would be right up your alley!

A Temporary Marriage by Summer Dowell51Qg1v+XoxL

If you need a light fun read, this is a Cute chick-flick with a sweet romance.
