WWW Wednesday: May 22, 2019

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and is alive and well at Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to view. I plan on spending a chunk of today blog hopping and discovering new books so I would love to see what everyone is reading!


What Did You Recently Finish Reading?

I had a wonderful time finally understanding how to successfully use my bullet journal thanks to Dot Journaling, A Practical Guide. If you have ever been interested in bullet journaling but you were either overwhelmed or confused, this book is a fantastic way to begin! You can read my full review here.

I also finished the pulse pounding thriller, The President is Missing. My full review is here. It wasn’t at all what I expected and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Finally, I read The Power by Naomi Alderman. Many people are referring to this as the Handmaid’s Tale for men and while it included some fascinating ideas, overall I had some major problems with the book. Foremost, I would like to believe that if women were the more physically powerful gender we wouldn’t quickly turn into the worst version of men. Still, it is one of those books that is perfect to discuss with other readers. I don’t regret reading it but I don’t think that I will be reviewing it here.


What am I Currently Reading

The only two books I am counting as “currently reading” this week are Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy and Hamlet. I would really like to get these both into my “finished” pile so I am going to focus on them.


What Will I Read Next

These are all stories that have landed in my Kindle this week due to some over-zealous requesting. I will probably start The Vanishing Stair today because it is an audiobook. Otherwise, if anyone has any tips on the other books I would love them!

WWW Wednesday: May 15, 2019

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and is alive and well at Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. It is my favorite way to stay on top of my reading!


What Did I Just Finish Reading?

This week I had the joy of reading One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus and The Bride Test by Helen Hoang. Both books were addictive reads. One of Us is Lying took my completely by surprise – I didn’t expect to enjoy it and found I could not put it down! You can read my full review of this YA thriller here.

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang is the second in her series following The Kiss Quotient. As a contemporary romance this was an enjoyable read. I am still mulling over my feelings about the main character, Esme, but I can say for certain that I thoroughly enjoying this book.


What am I Currently Reading?

Ummm…oops. Six books is too many but I can’t put any of these down. Well, to be honest, I still haven’t finished Hamlet because I put it somewhere very safe (meaning: I lost it in my house). Similarly, I had to return The Color of Magic to the library but I purchased a copy this weekend – nothing comes between me and my Terry Pratchett! So, I suppose the universe has temporarily shaved my active list to four. Four is much more manageable.

I am about 40% of the way into The President is Missing as an audiobook. Dennis Quaid is a little uneven in his delivery but I forgive him because picturing him as the President is quite fun. This book has me furiously cleaning while I listen. It is an intense action-packed story.

I am half-way through Dot Journaling: A Practical Guide and will probably finish it today. It is an easy read that has really helped me understand the mystery around bullet journaling. I always want to bullet journal but when I try is feels uselessly complicated! Re-writing my to-do list makes me feel like I am in grade school being punished for something. I Will Pay My Bills. I Will Pay My Bills. I Will Pay My Bills. This book has helped me simplify the idea while still allowing it to be creative. That’s the exact balance I am trying to achieve!

I picked up a copy of Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy on a whim this weekend and I’m more than 100 pages in. This is middle grade story has nine books and features a dead skeleton and a teenage girl who have teamed up to thwart evil. I always like to keep on top of middle grade books so I am ready with the recommendation for kids and this one is excellent so far.

I am also reading The Power by Naomi Alderman. I stayed up for hours reading it the other night. I am only 30% into the story but I can already tell you that it is intense. The idea that all girls have the power of electricity that comes from their own bodies has me really wishing for our own super powers. I have relegated this to day-time only reading because I can not calm down while reading it.


What Will I Read Next?

I’ve made the mistake of requesting too many books from my library so I have these three audiobooks waiting for me. I will probably choose only one because I really need to attack my massive TBR as well. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and is now hosted by Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to admire. Then, take some time (or, if you are me, all of your spare time on Wednesday) to check out everyone else’s list. Let’s begin!


What Did You Just Finish Reading?

Well, I’ve been home sick for the past three days and up a lot in the night so I have gotten a lot of reading done in the past week. This is why I have an unusually large “just finished” pile. This is also why I have so few reviews in the past week – reading is comforting but I am not sure about my editing abilities with this virus still pumping through my system.

I finally finished The Wonderling by Mira Bartok and it was such a sweet story. I just loved the whole world the author created with hybrids called groundings. The main character, a one eared fox called Arthur, and his best friend Trinket are orphans. Trinket is just so full of positivity and hope and watching her give the gift of hope to Arthur was absolute perfection. The slight tinge of magic that covered the whole world is just a bonus. I loved this book and I’m only sorry it languished on my bedside table for so long.  I can’t wait to feel better and review it.

I also finished listening to / reading Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan. I’m a huge fan of this series because Riordan does such a good job with diversity representation without sacrificing the action. A full series review is coming soon!

I finished A View to a Kilt by Wendy Holden and it was a nice light diversion. Holden’s books always have fantastic casts of characters and this group didn’t disappoint. I hated the romance but it was such a small part of the story that it was easy to overlook. However, I wonder if I would be so forgiving if I wasn’t already a dedicated fan of the author…

My library came through for me in full force this week and I picked up a bunch of graphic novels and books to keep me company. I checked out and finished What If Its Us by Becky Albertini and Adam Silvera very quickly. I was reluctant to read this because I love Becky Albertini but I was concerned that writing with a partner would make it, I don’t know, less Becky somehow. I was so wrong! It was excellent. I don’t know much about Adam Silvera but I am intrigued now. If anyone has any recommendations – let me know!

As for the graphic novels, Likely Stories by Neil Gaiman was too violent and dark for me but Sweet Tooth by Jeff Lamare was weird and intriguing. I have only read volume one but I can hardly wait to get my hands on the next books. I have to know what is going on in this story!!


What am I Currently Reading?

I am quickly working my way through Hamlet. I am in Act Four and I am trying to finish it before the weekend. I want to have plenty of time to tuck deeply into The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett. It is the first of his Discworld books. I thought that Pratchett might be too weird for me but after reading Good Omens I think he might be just the right kind of weird. I am only a few chapters in and I am really enjoying it.


What Will I Read Next?

I have finally received my pre-ordered copy of The Bride Test by Helen Hoang. I am sure this contemporary romance will help balance out my library picks – The President is Missing, The Power, and One of Us is Lying. It is interesting the books I pick out when I am sick versus the ones I buy when I feel healthy isn’t it? I’ll need to add back more nonfiction and an audiobook to my stack this week – again, if you have a recommendation please let me know!

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and is now hosted by Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to admire. Also, take some time to visit the other participants and see what others are reading. I love this meme – it never fails to keep me organized!


What Did I Recently Finish Reading?

 

Only two books went into the finished pile this week but they brought me so much joy! I finished the third book in the Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater, Blue Lily, Lily Blue, and it was everything I hoped it would be. Admittedly, it started slowly but I credit that to the time I let lapse between book two and three and not necessarily the story itself. I hope to read the fourth book and do a review of the full series soon!

I also had a wonderful time rediscovering Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. My Harry Potter full read through has been extra fun with these illustrated versions. They are gorgeous.


What am I Currently Reading?

 

Poor Wonderling. I really need to finish it already. Hamlet has been great fun especially since I am reading the no-fear version which includes side-by-side contemporary English meaning. Most of the time it is easy to understand the dialogue but being able to check for understanding has been key to me enjoying the experience of reading it for the first time. I am more than half way through the third Magnus Chase as an audiobook and it is perfect for keeping me company during my commute or while I clean. I am also nearly finished with A View to a Kilt and it is still light and fun!


What am I Reading Next?

Raven#4

I would really like to clear my currently reading shelf and finish off the Raven Cycle series this coming week. Other than that, I will be happy to return to full-time mood reading now that my OWL readathon challenge has ended.

WWW Wednesday: April 24, 2019

It is 9:30 p.m. here and I have gone through nearly the whole day believing it was Tuesday. This is what happens when you take a Monday off! Since it is Wednesday (for a few more hours) it is also time for WWW Wednesday. Make sure and head over to Sam’s site, Taking on a World of Words, where you can see what is on everyone else’s list for this week. Please feel free to leave any links below. My TBR won’t continue to be brimming without your help!


What Did I Recently Finish Reading?

It may not look like much but this week I experienced an enormous feeling of accomplishment when I finished not one but two books off of my huge physical TBR.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan is the second in this delightful Norse Mythology series. I am already 35% into the third book and I am loving it. Expect a review of the trilogy shortly!

I also read the first graphic novel / comic book I have enjoyed in quite some time. The Star Wars by JW Rinzler is based on the original screenplay itself. The art is fantastic and, for the epic storyline it is attempting to cover, it is a really well done book.

I also finished Last of the Summer Moet by Wendy Holden. Holden is a long-time favorite author of mine and I love her style. I had a little trouble getting into this story. This made sense when I went to log it on Goodreads and discovered I was reading #2 in the series. Ah-Hah! It was still great fun and I am already several chapters into the third book. I will probably circle back and read books 1 and 1.5 at some point because I love Holden just that much.

I also finished Eon by Alison Goodman. Eon has been on my physical TBR for so long and I am proud to have finally read it. It wasn’t a hard read or a complicated story but for some reason it just kept getting passed over for other books. I enjoyed the story of Eona who is disguised as a boy in order to wield Dragon magic but I am not sure I will continue with the series only because I have so many (honestly, so many) series on my shelf that I need to finish first.


What am I Currently Reading?

Jeesh. I know. This looks bad. But, I am re-reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Illustrated over breakfast. I listen to Magnus Chase, The Ship of the Dead as an audiobook and A View to a Kilt is on my Kindle for those night insomnia comes a-callin’. All three of them are sequels to books I just finished!

Meanwhile, the poor dear Wonderling is a buddy read I am doing and neither my buddy nor I are prioritizing this truly sweet story. I hope to finish it this week!

I am zipping through Hamlet which is good because it is for my OWL read-a-thon and, with only a week left, it is one of the few categories I am not sure I would be able to easily fill.

Finally, Blue Lily, Lily Blue is going strong. As the third book in The Raven Cycle I only regret waiting so long to finally crack into it. In fact, all I plan to do this evening is read more of this book!


What Will I Read Next?

RoseBlood

The only subject I know I haven’t covered for my OWLs is Defense Against the Dark Arts which requires me to read a book that starts with the letter “R.” I have had this particular book on my physical TBR for quite some time so I hope to finish it before the end of April.

WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: April 17, 2019

Last Wednesday got away from me but I’m back for this week and ready to stay on top of my reading (I need a push to get back on track with my posting though!). As always, a big thank you to Sam at Taking on A World of Words for hosting this meme which asks the big three questions:

What did you just finish reading?

What are you currently reading?

What will you read next?


What Did I Just Finish Reading?

This is two weeks worth of reading! I loved the enemies to friends romance of Meet Cute by Helena Hunting. I got it from my local library because the cover was just too cute and inhaled it in a day. It is a sweet story with enough depth to keep it out of fluff territory.

I also listened to the audiobook of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them while simultaneously following along in my gorgeous illustrated copy. At a short two hours the experience was as good as watching a movie. I put a full review up here. 

I also wrapped up this week with the wonderfully weird Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Guess what? Review coming soon!

I managed to clear all of my ARC books (well, sort of / kind of / not really). I finished Highland Crown by Mary McCormick which I loved. It is a romantic historical fiction set in Scotland. I am having trouble writing a review that doesn’t compare it to Outlander but it is nearly impossible to avoid since the parallels are so strong and only the time traveling component is missing. But it felt like a completely different book! I need to make that clear in my review but I am, obviously, having a bit of a reviewing-block.

I also finished Solving for M by Jennifer Swender which I expected to be a middle grade book about math but turned out to be a middle grade book about melanoma. It is very well written and I am glad it exists but it would require some serious thought before handing it to a 10-14 year old. When I can figure out how to explain that a review will be up.

Finally, I put Dreaming in Code in the DNF pile. It is not bad but it didn’t catch my interest after the first three chapters and I already missed reviewing it before it came out so I only DNFed it for the sake of time. Does that count as clearing my ARC list?!?


What am I Currently Reading?

I am almost finished with Eon by Alison Goodman. This is my selected book for my Charms OWL as part of  my OWL Readathon. I am going to need to focus if I have any hope of getting through all of my OWLs but this has been a great place to start because Eon is an exciting fantasy read about a sixteen-year old girl posing as a boy in order to become a Dragon Magic user. Additionally, both Eon and another character have disabilities and the author (so far) has handled this issue perfectly.

Hamlet I have barely begun but since it is for my History of Magic OWL I know I need to keep working on it. I am hoping that I can attack it the same was I did LOTR, a little bit everyday.

I am listening to and reading Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan. It is read by Kieran Culkan and he does a wonderful job. This book also has an excellent portrayal of a Deaf character in it and (hopefully) finishing it will help me with my non-OWL April reading list.

Finally, insomnia is baaaacccckkk! Thankfully, one of my favorite authors, Wendy Holden, has put out two new books. I started the first one, Last of the Summer Moet, a few nights ago and it is as delightful as all her other books. They are light romances with loads of intrigue and British (a perfect combination for me!). Reading on my Kindle is my favorite kind of insomnia reading. It is reminiscent of reading under the covers.


What Will I Read Next?

This is one book off my Non-OWL reading list and one from my OWL list. If I can clear my currently reading I will be thrilled to start both of these books this week!

WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: April 3, 2019

When I was in my reading funk Wednesdays made me so sad because I knew I should be posting but I didn’t have anything to write about or organize. Today I feel great and I am so happy to say – it’s Wednesday!!! Time for WWW Wednesday. Thanks, as always, goes to Sam at Taking on a World of Words for hosting and to all the participants who help me add to my endless TBR every week with their wonderful posts.


What Did I Just Finish Reading?

This week I finished One Day in December by Josie Silver. This is one of the books I bought when I was sad and, while I enjoyed it, I had a couple of problems with the ridiculousness of the love story. Girl sees boy and instantly falls in love. Later, her best friend brings him home and presents him as her own true love. Ten years of missed opportunities follow. There was an excellent friend component and some deep feelings there but the romance itself missed for me. While I enjoyed the book I didn’t love it enough to recommend it.

As a white Catholic American I am clueless about many of the issues around the world. I don’t mean to be but American news is very American-centric. I try to consume world news but sometimes I don’t have the backstory to help me understand. Enter Against Our Better Judgment by Alison Weir. I have a decent grasp on what is happening regarding the Gaza Strip from the Israeli point of view but I have never been able to access the Palestinian perspective. A friend gave me Against Our Better Judgment to read and it was interesting. It was incredibly short, written like a college paper, and certain sections felt very conspiracy theorist but its reference section was twice as long as the book and it made some credible (if not at all popular) points. I want to continue to look into this until I can figure out more precisely the nuances of what has happened and continues to happen over the land many consider to be holy.

I finished Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson in audiobook form and I loved it all the way to the end and then I was livid! Did everyone know this was a cliffhanger ending except me?!? I didn’t even realize it was a series until it just clicked off. It was still an excellent murder mystery and a review will be posted soon.

Finally, I finished The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Phillippe this morning. I have been obsessed with Canada for years now and I really enjoyed reading the fish out of water experience of Norris moving from Montreal to Texas. A review will be up shortly for this book as well!


What am I Currently Reading?

I need to clear the decks on my currently reading. The Wonderling was….misplaced in the house (this is clearly code for I forgot I was reading it) and I need to get back into and through this cute story. I am three fourths of the way through Good Omens and I will probably finish it this evening. Whatever good and awesome things you have heard about this book probably fall short. It is a must read.

The three remaining books are all ARCs from Netgalley that I requested when I was not reading and then just let sit on my shelf. This is not ok! I need to read them and review them like a good little blogger.


What Will I Read Next?

hamlet

I took stock of my reading with my first quarter update and realized that I wasn’t making equal progress with my goals – especially with getting through my massive physical TBR. So, I did something I’ve never done before and made an actual list to work off of. I am also participating in the O.W.L. Readathon and so I made a list for that as well that is completely from my own bookshelves. So, the only book I know for sure I will be cracking into after I clear my currently reading is Hamlet. I have never read it and it will fulfill my History of Magic O.W.L. as a book that was published more than 10 years ago.

WWW Wednesday: March 27, 2019

It has been FAR too long! After weeks of reading either (1) nothing or (2) books that I didn’t love, I have finally gotten my book reading mojo back! This is the first week in forever that I felt like I had enough momentum to need to organize my books and participate in WWW Wednesday. Thanks, as always, to Sam at Taking on a World of Words for hosting this meme.


What did you recently finish reading?

I had every intention of waiting for all three parts of Penny Reid’s new Laws of Physics to be published before I started Motion but I was traveling and became desperate and downloaded it in the middle of the night. I wish I had waited – this book is just the first third of the story and it is supposed to have a cliffhanger at the end but it just kind of stopped. It felt like reading a very long free preview from Amazon.

I also listened to two audiobooks: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson and A New Hope: The Princess, The Scoundrel and the Farm Boy by Alexandra Bracken. Manson’s book made a couple of good points but fell short of a book I would recommend widely but A New Hope was the spark that exploded me back into my reading. You can see my full review here.

I also read Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller which is the second in this series. Both of these books are fun and interesting and I am looking forward to the third book being published. I need to post my review but I have such a hard time reviewing incomplete series without

As you can see, it has been a ridiculously slow month of reading for me. During this time I picked up and DNFed so many books – I just couldn’t seem to finish anything! I put them all back on my TBR because I knew that it wasn’t the books, it was me. I tried everything – even ruining my buying ban – to snap out of it. Life has been chaos here and my brain just wouldn’t let me relax enough to read. Perhaps it is the precious few sunny days we are having here or the proximity of actual Spring, but I am feeling calmer and my reading has come back to life. THANK GOD.


What are you currently reading?


Now see? This big old load of books brings me joy. Two weeks ago I would have given them the side eye and felt overwhelmed but now I just feel surrounded by possible friends.

I am nearly finished with The Field Guide to the North American Teenager and about a third of the way through The Wonderling. I recently started Truly Devious as an audiobook, Good Omens on my Kindle and One Day in December as a physical copy. All of them together are balancing out to bring me joy!


What do you think you’ll read next?

youcandoit

I’ve had this book for quite some time on my shelf and just looking at it makes me feel happy and inspired. I’m going to crack into it this weekend and earn some badges.

WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: February 13, 2019

It is time for my favorite meme of the week: WWW Wednesday! Hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words this has become my go-to for staying organized and making sure my TBR on Goodreads is always growing. So, if you want, join! Just answer the following three questions.

What Did I Recently Finish Reading?

What Am I Currently Reading?

What Will I Read Next?

And, make sure to hop over to our host’s site and check out all of the other participants. I have found some of my best books (and favorite bloggers!) through this weekly check-in.


What Did I Recently Finish Reading?

I had a very up and down week. I had books I absolutely adored and others that infuriated me. I hate to speak poorly of books but In Praise of Wasting Time was just a short book about how you should walk around in nature more and get off your phone. Ash Princess (which I honestly thought was part of the Red Queen story arch) was an audiobook I finished that felt like a 13 hour inner monologue by someone with terrible Stockholm Syndrome.

BUT, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone saved my sanity this week. As part of the read-a-long this year that is hosted by the fabulous Noura at The Perks of Being Noura I have friends to help me with that 2019 total HP re-read through goal. I got a bit behind by not finishing the first book in January so I need to read two this month. I have the illustrated copy and I was flat out obnoxious about making people look at the illustrations. I cannot wait to read The Chamber of Secrets next!

My library also delivered on getting me a copy of The Wicked King. This is the second in The Folk of the Air series by Holly Black following The Cruel Prince. I really enjoyed the first book but I loved the second one! My full review is here.

Finally, I read Con Artist by Fred Van Lente. This is a fantastic murder mystery that takes place at San Diego’s Comic Con. I finished it last night around 1:00 in the morning so the full review will be posted tomorrow. I couldn’t sleep until I finished it and then I re-read the ending this morning.


What Am I Currently Reading?

Well. I think we can see by my list that I am keeping any seasonal sadness away with the help of middle grade books! I find them perfect for when I need a pick-me-up.

I am 90% of the way finished with Artemis Fowl, The Arctic Incident as an audiobook. The narrative does an absolute divine job with all the different accents! I am loving it.

I am a few chapters into my other three books. The Wonderling by Mira Bartock I picked up because of the gorgeous cover and I am really enjoying the story of the little orphan animals. Similarly, The Assassination of Brangwain Spurge I chose for the cover and was delighted to find that it is almost half told through drawings. Very Brian Selznick but with elves and gnomes and historians. Finally, I have decided to learn more about Sherlock and Arthur Conan Doyle for my 2019 Learn Something New Challenge. This Challenge is hosted by Kathleen at SMS Nonfiction Books and I am excited to get started on it.


What Will I Read Next?

Obviously I need more Harry Potter. I also received a physical copy of The Field Guide to the North American Teenager from my library and a notification that The Man Who Would be Sherlock is ready for me to enjoy as an audiobook. This week – only ONE audiobook at a time!

WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday: February 7, 2019

I had a long weekend absolutely stuffed full of ridiculousness and so arriving at this moment – beautiful Wednesday – feels even better than usual. Make sure and check out Sam’s website, Taking on a World of Words, as she graciously hosts this meme each week. There you will find so many other wonderful blogs all listing the three W’s for the week: What did I just finish reading? What am I reading now? and What do I think I will read next?


What did I just finish reading?

I had a weird week. I read two very short books, Drawn Together and …And Then You Die of Dysentery. I requested and received Drawn Together from the library but I didn’t realize it was a children’s book until I picked it up. It is short but has breathtakingly gorgeous illustrations. Just stunning. I could have flipped through the whole thing in 2 minutes but I spend more like 20 marveling at the details of the drawings.

…And Then You Die of Dysentery is an extremely short book about adulting as told through the lens of the Oregon Trail. This was an extremely popular game when I was a kid and has found a second surge of popularity lately (much to my joy). This book looks like a fun gift but has very little substance and is really only funny if you’re a huge fan of both the struggles of “adulting” and the Oregon Trail. As much as I love the Oregon Trail, this was just too short. Like, I brewed a cup of coffee in my Tassimo in the time it took me to read it cover to cover.

I had to put Before Tomorrowland into my DNF pile because a character in chapter two has a brain tumor. This is a no fly zone for me since I lost my sister to a brain tumor in 2015.

I also finish Un Lun Dun. This is an odd book. I’m still processing all of my thoughts but as I closed the final pages and placed the book into my finished pile I found myself saying aloud, “oooooooookay, then.”

Finally, I thoroughly enjoyed Mike Reiss’ Springfield Confidential which will be featured this coming week for NonFiction Friday! If you’ve seen The Simpsons, you’re interesting in television writing, or you just want to laugh, this is the book for you.


What am I Reading Now?

Last week I had three (three!) audiobooks that I thought I would be listening to but none of them struck my fancy. It happens sometimes with audiobooks doesn’t it? Or, maybe it is just me. Either way, I scrapped that plan and started listening to Artemis Fowl, The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer and Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian. I am loving them both! I am 24% of the way into The Arctic Incident and more than 50% through Ash Princess.

I am also reading the delightful In Praise of Wasting Time which is fairly self-explanatory and the library came through for me this week with The Wicked King. YES!


What Will I Read Next

I won’t let anything get between me and my trip back to Hogwarts this coming week!
