This Week's Reads

Fairy Wonders
by Emeraldus (DeviantArt)

Smoke and Iron by Rachel Caine
The Great Library #4 (Goodreads)
**I'm glad this book picks up pretty much where the last finished. Which is good since I was having trouble remembering what was going on. Some of the group is back in Alexandria while the rest try to save themselves from ending up the same way. All while still trying to bring down the Archivist Magister and the rot in the library.

Malice by John Gwynne
The Faithful and The Fallen #1 (Goodreads)
**Another fantasy series that I came across on a list somewhere. It's a good vs evil kind of classic fantasy with reviews that state it's on the dark side of fantasy.

This Week's Reads

by Peyop (DeviantArt)

The Lost Plot by Genevieve Cogman
The Invisible Library #4 (Goodreads)
**More Irene and Kai. More Dragons and politics. More of everything that makes this series fun.

Alpha Divided by Aileen Erin
Alpha Girl #3 (Goodreads)
**Still enjoying this series. Like the fact that this book focuses more on Tessa's magic side and hopefully finding a balance.

Iron and Magic by Ilona Andrews
The Iron Covenant #1 (Goodreads)
**This takes place in the same world of their Kate Daniels series but a different area. I'm not sure about a series focused on Hugh. I'm not sure I want to like him in any way. Still I really like the writing of this couple so will try and go in with an open mind.

This Week's Reads

by Develv (DeviantArt)

Haunted by Kelley Armstrong
Otherworld #5 (Goodreads)
**Trying to get back into these books. Even though this is the next book I needed to read may not have been the best choice. Not sure why but I just don't seem to like Eve at the moment (at least in this story).

Being Alpha by Aileen Erin
Alpha Girl #7 (Goodreads)
**I received this book from the publisher (Ink Monster) but had not read any of the previous books when I got it. Since this weekend, I've already read Becoming Alpha and Avoiding Alpha. I find it easy to read and fall into the world the author has created. I'm hoping to trend of Tessa not thinking before doing or not listening to people who have so much more experience lessens. It could make the character unreadable very quick.

Deadly Sweet by Lola Dodge
The Spellwork Syndicate #1 (Goodreads)
**This showed up as a recommendation on my Hoopla app, it was already on my radar so I went ahead and downloaded it. The mix of witchcraft, baking, and some witchy mayhem really sound like a fun summer read.
