I haven’t quite disappeared from this blog but I have been a little absent and that’s just because I’ve been back at work and I’m so tired 😑 . So I decided to write up a quick post so you guys can remember that I exist!
1. The Midnight Lie by Marie Rutkoski
This book has suddenly gotten very popular over on f/f twitter and I’m so excited to read it. It was already on my TBR but then Silvia rated it 5 stars and now I know I’m going to rate it 5 stars too — we have very similar reading tastes.
2. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
I’ve been adding and then removing this book from my TBR for years now and that’s because I’m really interested in the premise, but then that page count (1006) turns me off. But this year I decided to stop being scared of long books and to embrace them instead, so I am officially adding this back on to my TBR. I also found a free copy of this book at a local little library too, and it’s in perfect condition! Not to mention, Erin Morgenstern rates this as one of her favourite books ever and I adore Erin’s books!
3.天官赐福 (Tiān Guān Cì Fú/Heaven’s Official Blessing) by Moxiang Tongxiu
I recently finished Moxiang Tongxiu’s previous novel Mo Dao Zu Shi (魔道祖师) and loved it! It’s a 1000+ page novel and I read it in eight days because it was so epic and romantic and just plain funny. So I just know I’m going to love this author’s most recent novel, which everyone says is actually her best work!
4. A Conspiracy of Truths by Alexandra Rowland
I’ve had this book on my TBR for a little while now and I can just tell I’m going to love it. It’s been referred to as a “quiet fantasy” novel and those are my favourite types.
5. Credence by Penelope Douglas
Don’t judge me, haha! But I love dark romances and I have a feeling this book is just going to be so weird and horrible, but I will love it.
6. Three Women by Lisa Taddeo
This is a non-fiction novel about three very different women who have three very different experiences with sex. I don’t know much more than that, but I’ve heard good things about this book that make me think I’ll love it too.
7. The Ragged Blade by Christopher Ruz
This book is about a man and his daughter on the run from his husband who is a powerful evil magician. Yes, yes, yes, I just know I’m going to love this!
8. The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith
I just know I’m going to rate this book 5 stars because it has a f/f romance and is about book characters that runaway from hell. I’m so excited for it!
9. Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
This book has intrigued me since it came out and I really want to just read it already! I have a feeling I’m going to love it based on what people I trust have said. Fingers crossed!
Have you read any of these books? What did you rate them? What books are on your 5 star predictions list? Let me know!
