January always comes in with a flurry of books, meaning, I always start off my year with very good intentions and the belief that I will 100% read all the books on my TBR despite knowing that this is an impossible task since for every book I read, I add 3 more. But still... goals.
This January I read 13 books and for the most part they were pretty solid! I've started letting the picker wheel determine by TBR pile choices and it's worked out remarkably well.
So without further ado... my January Wrap Up.
Arden is also coming to terms with who she is and what kind of relationship she wants with people… family, friends, and romance. In this book we see things like broken homes, abusive relationships, people exploring different unidentified, and shifting friendships. None of it is easy, because life isn’t easy. I’m so thankful that Stoeve chooses to let it all sit in the light.
It did not dissapoint. The story is exactly as I remember it. Full of adventure and heartbreak, mystery and magic, only know it's accompanied by beautiful illustrations. Kristin Cashore and Gareth Hinds knocked this out of the park.
revisiting my favorite? It was great. I loved hearing the story and catching moments that I maybe didn't read the same way, and even hearing my favorite parts, like, "The sky, and the sand, and the sea, and Corr" and "It's too late for that Puck" hit different on the audio book.
