Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman
This is by the same author as Seraphina and Shadow Scale which I really enjoyed so I was excited to pick up this book even though I knew very little about it. Continue reading “(49) Tess of the Road // Bookish Blurb”
Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle by Betty MacDonald
After reading so much intense fantasy, I wanted to read something light and very different. And then for some reason I started thinking about this book.
This book is one of many that my mom used to read to my brother and me when we were little. I’m not sure when I last read it.
Basically this book is a collection of stories about ‘cures’ that Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle comes up with such as “Won’t-Pick-up toys cure” and Fighter-Quarreller cure”. Continue reading “(47) Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle // Bookish Blurb”

In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume
Somehow I have gone through life thus far having never read a Judy Blume book. It felt like high time to remedy that.
In this book we follow a host of characters centered around the town of Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1952 when a plane crashes and their lives rapidly evolve.
For the most part our main character is Miri, the daughter of a single mother, just at the cusp of becoming an ‘adult’. Continue reading “(43) In the Unlikely Event // Bookish Blurb”
All the Truth That’s In Me by Julie Berry
After reading the Passion of Dolssa I started looking at other books written by the same author which is how I came across this book which I never would have otherwise read.
This is a dark teen story in which we follow Judith who disappeared for two years and then reappeared one day with her tongue mutilated and unable to tell people what happened to her. Continue reading “(42) All the Truth That’s In Me // Bookish Blurb”
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
This book is my new obsession. We follow the story of Diana Bishop who is a witch. She doesn’t want to be a witch, she doesn’t want to use her magic, so she does her best to live a very normal ‘human’ life. Unfortunately she magic can’t be ignored and when she accidentally finds a magical book that everyone has been looking for, she is suddenly wanted by everyone in the magical community.
