Happy November everyone!! I just can’t believe the end of the year is here and the holiday season is upon us!!
I read 16 books in October and 10 of those were 5 or 4.5 star reads for me, so that’s a pretty good reading month as far as I’m concerned!
I also participated in TropeAThon 2 this month. I finished 5 out of the 8 tropes. Not bad for 1 week!
Title: Sorcery of Thorns Series: N/A Author: Margaret Rogerson Release Date: June 4, 2019 Genres: YA Fantasy/Romance Blurb:All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power.
Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them.
As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she’s been taught—about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could never have imagined.
I LOVE keeping track of quotes that speak to me. Some turn me to mush. Some are profound and make me think. Some are just funny or entertaining. I often include a quote or two in my reviews, but I thought it would be fun to start a weekly post sharing my favorites from the previous week. So, without further ado, here’s my first Quips & Quotes post!
“Tell me that doesn’t sound like a heaping helping of crazy, with bizarre gravy, and a slice of mashed loco for Cocoa Puffs.”
“Think of how much better the world would be if people craved compliments about the beauty of their heart rather than the beauty of their face.”
