I enjoyed Wildwood Dancing so much that I went out looking for other books by the author and came across this one.

In this adult historical fantasy novel we follow Caitrin as she flees from an abusive situation and ends up as a scribe at Whistling Tor in Ireland where nothing is quite as it should be. There is a curse on the land and voices in the trees and mirrors that show you things that surely can’t be. And the chieftain himself is a strange man with secrets of his own. Oh and guess what the Normans are coming to take over. Continue reading “(8) Heart’s Blood // Bookish Blurb”

I really enjoyed this book.

In this book we follow three characters who are all lost in some way and are drawn together by a random accident. We then follow them throughout the course of one day as they each start to become less lost. I know that’s not a very good description of this book but it really was very good.

In this book we follow the journey of the last unicorn as she leaves her woods in search of the rest of her kind. Along the way she has many interactions with humans who no longer recognizer her for who she is, and befriends a magician with no powers and a woman who does know her for what she is.

Books I Read in 2018 (By Genre ish)

I read a total of 87 books in 2018. Here is a list of all of them kind of sorted by genre. The number before them correlates to the order in which I read them. To learn more about any particular book click on the name and it will take you to my post about it.

So I just spent lots of time making pretty graphs to show you this information in a prettier way and WordPress won’t let me add them. GRRR!!! This is why I don’t love wordpress. So much for anything interesting. Here’s the list without visuals. Continue reading “Books I Read in 2018 (By Genre ish)”
