Anyone is welcome to join, just leave a link to your post in the comments and be sure to give the appropriate credit to Sam!


Currently Reading

  • Our American Friend  by Anna Pitoniak – ebook, ARC
  • The Age of Witches  by Louisa Morgan – audiobook
  • House of Sky and Breath (Crescent City, #2)  by Sarah J. Maas – physical book

I’m very close to finishing up Our American Friend and boy, has it been an interesting ride. My feelings with this one have been all over the place, so I’m really interested in seeing how it ends. I should have the review posted up either later this week or next. But if you’re at all interested in historical fiction set during the Cold War, I recommend picking this one up. It just released yesterday!

I have barely started House of Sky and Breath and Age of Witches, so not much to report on them yet. However, the prologue for Sky and Breath was crazy. I can already tell this one is going to be amazing!

What did you recently finish reading?

  • The Merciful Crow (Merciful Crow, #1) by Margaret Owen – ebook
  • House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1) by Sarah J. Maas – audiobook, reread

Earth and Blood was a reread for me and I’m sure y’all are more than aware of my feelings on it by now. But if not, just know that I 100% believe it to be Maas’ best work so far… YES, EVEN BETTER THAN ACOTAR!

And what can I say about The Merciful Crow? Well, I definitely loved it. Yes, it did get a little repetitive in the middle for a bit but it was still a fun ride. Owen is quickly joining another Margaret on my auto-buy author list! (Margaret Rogerson is the other one, because obviously. She’s flawless!)

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Jade Legacy (Green Bone Saga, #3) by Fonda Lee – physical book
  • Daughters of a Dead Empire  by Carolyn Tara O’Neil – ebook, ARC
  • Firekeeper’s Daughter  by Angeline Boulley – audiobook, buddy read

What are you currently reading? What books did you finish this week? What are you planning on reading next? Have you read any of the books on my list? If so, what did you think of them? Leave a link to your WWW Wednesday post in the comments below!

  1. Fire Keeper’s Daughter is on my TBR, too! I really hope to read it this year. I look forward to reading your thoughts on it once you do!

  2. I will definitely check out “Our American Friend” – thank you! I’ve been on a historical fiction kick and recently finished reading “Matilda Empress” by Lise Arin. This is about a true warrior queen who I’ve been researching and reading about ever since I finished the book. I think the author did an amazing job at bringing her to life and making this book as historically accurate as possible (but obviously doesn’t read like a history book). Matilda is the daughter of England’s Henry I and was destined to rule the empire. Her cousin, Stephen, Count of Boulogn, usurps the crown and this results in 20 years of a bloody civil war. Matilda and her cousin also have a relationship as lovers that is always teetering on the edge of hatred and obsession. They have a child together and he is now the rightful heir to the throne. I was truly swept away by this book, and I was sad when it was over. I hope the author writes another book about another badass woman of historical significance soon!
