Reading Round Up: February Part 1

Ten Thousand Stitches by Olivia Atwater – 3.5 Stars This one is the follow up to Half A Soul which was one of my favorite books last year. This one wasn’t quite as good but it was still fun. I really enjoy the mix of faerie and historical context and also think that this doesn’t need to be read in any order. This one was like a Cinderella retelling, we follow a maid who falls in love with a rich man and engages the help of the fae in order to achieve this. As always when the fae try to help things do not go as planned and chaos ensues.

What Lies In The Woods by Kate Alice Marshall – 4 Stars This was an entertaining thriller and 3 girls who were attacked when they were young and now years later the truth is finally going to come out. Found this one to be fast paced and very enjoyable!

Emily Wilde’s Encyclopedia of Faeries by Heather Fawcett – 4.5 Stars I loved this book so much!! It was such a fun read and I am so sad I have to wait for the sequel! This book takes place in the early 1900’s and follows Emily who is a scholar and studies the Fae. With the unwelcome help of colleague the two try and find out what the can of the Tall Ones. Love a good grump and sunshine as well as an enemies to lovers story!

Do I Know You by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka – DNF I just want to start this off by saying that this one just wasn’t working for me. I really enjoyed this duos first book so I was excited for this one but I got about 25% in and decided to not finish it. This story follows a married couple who are celebrating their five year anniversary but something is missing in their relationship. When they accidentally get introduced to each other as strangers they both decide to go with it. This premise just wasn’t working for me but I think there is still an audience for this one. Thank you Berkley and Edelweiss for my gifted copy for review.
