This Week’s Reads: That Weekend by Kara Thomas – Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas – Sing a Song of Seasons by Fiona Waters #Reading #Books #AmReading #Reads

Hi all! Hope everyone’s enjoying their week so far. Here’s what I’m reading this week and also what I just finished. My reading has slowed, and I won’t be posting as much over the next few weeks. Part of the reason for that is because I’ve been reading NetGalley books which don’t publish until later on. The other reason is that it’s time for planting. With frosts almost every night, it’s finally warming up this weekend, and it’s time to get those plants in the ground!

So, I just finished up Live Your Life: My Story of Loving and Losing Nick Cordero by Amanda and Ana Kloots. I’ll post that review soon. It was a five-star read for me.

Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman

Blurb:

“I bought the milk,” said my father. “I walked out of the corner shop, and heard a noise like this: t h u m m t h u m m. I looked up and saw a huge silver disc hovering in the air above Marshall Road.”

Find out just how odd things get in this hilarious New York Times bestselling story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young.

Book Review: Among the Beasts & Briars by Ashley Poston #BookReview #Fantasy #Fiction

Among the Beasts & Briars by Ashley Poston

Blurb:

Cerys is safe in the kingdom of Aloriya.

But as Aloriya prospered, the woods grew dark, cursed, and forbidden. Cerys knows this all too well: when she was young, she barely escaped as the woods killed her friends and her mother. Now Cerys carries a small bit of the curse—the magic—in her blood, a reminder of the day she lost everything. The most danger she faces now, as a gardener’s daughter, is the annoying fox who stalks the royal gardens and won’t leave her alone.
