Last week I made a list of the books I planned to read. I read almost all of them, plus two I wasn't expecting. Here's what I read this week:
This book has been on my TBR list for a while and I'm glad I finally had a chance to read it. It is the story of a village that has been held hostage by a witch that claims one baby each year, a witch that finds new families for those babies, a man who decides there must be another way, a broken mother, a lovable swamp monster, a tiny dragon, and a girl who drank the moon. I loved the way the lives of these multiple characters entwine together. It is a beautiful story filled with magic and love.
You know you are reading a great fantasy series when your dreams start taking place in the series setting. This imagined world has fantastic characters, redeemable villains (at least some of them), magic, betrayal, adventure, and a spunky female main character to follow through the pages. I enjoyed the way different points of view were weaved in and out of the narrative.
At high school orientation five strangers are grouped together and write letters to be opened the last day of school. For the next four years we follow their lives through twists and turns until they finally meet again at graduation. A really enjoyable read that brought me back to high school.
