Peculiar Enjoyment

Always Never Chaste

Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars I know what it's like to watch the people you care about replace you and never look back. I've gone through it eight times now.

Who Cares about Game of Thrones?

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes My rating: 5 of 5 stars Magic will find those with pure hearts, even when all seems lost.

This Is Not About Animals

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden My rating: 4 of 5 stars All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark. —Helena Bonham Carter The Bear and the Nightingale was delightful to read.
