Currently Reading: 12/28/19


     This week has been a pretty good reading week for me. My plan was to finish the year off strong, and I think that's going to happen, thank goodness.


       I started and finished "The Guinevere Deception" by Kiersten White and ended up super enjoying it. I plan on having a review for that up within the next week, so keep an eye out for that. Overall though, it was exactly the type of book I needed to get into the reading mood. YA fantasy/paranormal romance are the genres I know I can always rely on. It had the perfect blend of fantasy and romance in a setting I really enjoyed. I'm a sucker for Arthurian retellings. Even though the plot itself was prectiable (mainly because it's one so well known and integral to the OG story), it still kept me on my toes.


      After finishing "The Guinevere Deception" I was in the mood to read something else in the fantasy/paranormal genre so I decided to pick up "House of Salt and Sorrows" by Erin Craig. I don't know a whole bunch about this book other than it's like a cross of YA fantasy with murder mystery sewn into the plot. I'm only 45 pages into this book, which is about 10%, so not a whole bunch has happened, but I don't have a problem with it. I like the main character, Annaleigh. She's your typical stubborn-headed female YA character, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I'm interested to see how the murder mystery plot is incorporated because from the get-go it seems like it is a key thing for the story.

      Well that's what I have been reading and am currently reading. My goal is to finish "House of Salt and Sorrows" by the time the new year rolls around, which if I just sit my ass down and do that instead of typing this post, I can definitely accomplish. Have you guys read either of these books? If so, what are your thoughts on them? I'd love to hear them down in the comments.
