Once Upon a Curse: 17 Dark Faerie Tales

Death in The Floating City by Tasha Alexander

This Week's Reads

The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
The Kingkiller Chronicle #1 (Goodreads)
**I've been meaning to start this series for long time. Saw it on list recently fantasy series that everyone should try and am finally doing so.

The Starlit Wood edited by Dominik Parisien
**I love fairy tale retellings and this anthology showcases some authors I already love and some I've wanted to try out.

Doctor Who: A History of Humankind 
The Doctor's Official Guide (Goodreads)
**Another love. I've only been watching Doctor Who for a couple years but fell fully into everything the Doctor.

The Art of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Leah Gallo
**Me and hubby did not enjoy the movie as much as we were hoping for but our son loved it. He is also the only one of the three who hasn't read the books. Most of the movie reviews I've seen seem to follow that thought. If you've read the books the movie doesn't really work for you.
Still, I love art books and visually the movie was well made.

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

**Picked this up based on the cover and author. The concept also sounded interesting. Plus, reviews from my Goodreads friend list all seem positive, so giving a try.

Blood Red Kiss by Kresley Cole, Larissa Ione, Gena Showalter
The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole
Forsaken by Night by Larissa Ione
Dark Swan by Gena Showalter
**I was in the mood for short stories. I've read and liked all three authors but have not read any of the series that these shorts come from so will also be a good introduction to them.

This Week's Reads

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
Charlotte Holmes #1 (Goodreads)
**The cover grabbed my attention, something about the colors works for me even better than the actual picture.
I've been enjoying mysteries of late and this is set in the Holmes world without actually being a Sherlock book.

Breath of Earth by Beth Cato
Breath of Earth #1 (Goodreads)
**Alt History, magic, and steampunk sounds like something that I should like. Steampunk has always been a hit or miss genre for me but I'm hoping with everything else that is part of this book I will still enjoy it.
