I read the second of the Sentinels of New Orleans this week and loved it so much more than the first! There was still a lot of similarities to other UF series, but the writing was much snappier and the mystery was one I couldn’t figure out until the twist :D. I definitely recommend continuing with this series if you had the same hang-ups as I did about the first book ;-).
I also found the time to read the short story The Hatching by Liesel K. Hill. This was a great short story since it left me wanting to read the first book so bad! So whenever there is a review copy available Liesel, you know where to find me ;-).
I finally got White Forest in the mail this past week (I was getting worried it had gotten lost D:), and got to start it! It’s been described as a “moody gothic tale” and I think that that fits quite well so far. It has a “classic” tone, as in the slower, proper tone that I expect from classics ;-). Jane gets these weird sensory flashes when objects are around her though, and hopefully it will help her solve her friend’s disappearance!
I also got to start The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic on my Kindle! I got this one from NetGalley a couple weeks ago, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to make the publication date. I’ll just get as close as I can ;-). But! I got an email about a possible giveaway for this one, something you all would be interested in??
