This post has a lot going on, but let me explain (plus big news at the end!): next weekend is Life, the Universe, and Everything (aka LTUE), a conference held here in Utah for speculative fiction writers and editors.
πŸ“–
This anthology was edited by Lisa Mangum, my editing mentor and all-around awesome human being. She is a huge staple in the Utah editing community, and I'm proud to know her.
πŸ“–
The random purple toys are because I asked my kids to help me find purple things to put in the photo, and these were their offerings. It was so cute, I couldn't refuse. πŸ˜†
πŸ“–
The other news is that, a few years ago, this anthology inspired me to write my own short story. That story, "Death by Unicorn," was accepted to be published in an anthology later this year. Hooray!

This is the fourth installment of The Invisible Library series. Isn't it pretty?
πŸ“–
Unfortunately, in my opinion, each book has been slightly worse than the last, but the fact that I've kept reading speaks to how amazing the first book was. Parallel worlds, an interdimensional library, stealing one-of-a-kind books, dragons, fae, steampunk dirigibles. It's awesome. If you haven't picked up this series, you definitely should!

It's been a long time since I've reread a book, let alone a trilogy. But after several dark and heavy new books, I need some dark and heavy familiar books. Logical.
πŸ“–
This will be my, I think, fourth time reading this series, and I love it just as much as the first time, if not more so. Some books just get better with age. πŸ˜‰

I'm so glad they reprinted this, especially in a small hardcover format. I'm planning to reread it soon.

I post my His Dark Materials omnibus all the time, but now I have these two companion books to go with it. I also have my smaller, red copy of Lyra's Oxford, but this is my first copy of Once Upon a Time in the North. These editions are very pretty!
πŸ“–
Question: What is your daemon? Mine is a red panda named Darius. I'm always curious what other people think their daemons would be.

I'm currently in the middle of this beautiful book, and I'm having trouble putting it down long enough to do essential things, like eat and sleep. One of my favorite parts of being a reader is finding a book that makes you forget how to live without it.

Between this trilogy and Strange the Dreamer, Laini Taylor has very quickly worked her way into my top ten favorite authors.

I'm reading the Red Rising trilogy, which is quite reminiscent of The Hunger Games, so I've been thinking about these books a lot.
πŸ“–
I love this metallic set so much. I bought the Mockingjay necklace at Comic Con a few years ago.

I'm not sure if I've ever posted the cover of the anthology I'm in. I was so excited to be published and work with the wonderful group of people I did. I've found the best home in the League of Utah Writers. It filled a gaping hole in my life I didn't even know was there.
πŸ“–
As for future publishing credits...keep an eye out. I may have news on that front soon. Cross your fingers!🀞

I've heard nothing but good things about this book, and it caught my eye when I saw it at the bookstore yesterday.

My birthday is on Tuesday, and I just ordered three more books that should get here that day. Happy birhday to me! πŸ“šπŸŽ‚

Who else is freaking out about Obsidio coming out in March?
πŸ“–
I love these books so much. The format is interesting and unique. The banter is hilarious and heartwarming. There is so much blood and so many life-threatening situations and you actually wonder if the characters will make it out alive. I can't wait to see what happens next!

I've been in the mood for some Regency romance lately. I've been reading heavy SFF books, and I'm sick of YA at the moment. Regency is my next go-to genre.
πŸ“–
I've read almost all of Julie Klassen's books. I read a *lot* of Regency, and she's one of my favorites. This one is about a widow trying to keep her husband's inn running after his death.

I was hoping to move on to a calmer, lighter book after Oathbringer and Red Rising. Instead I picked this up. 😊
πŸ“–
I love it so far. I knew I would, so I'm kicking myself for not reading it six months ago when I got it. Better late than never, though.

What's a book that you put off even though you knew you would enjoy it?

Another new acquisition. I've had this on my list for a while and decided to use my gift card for it. Just a quick skim showed me that it's right up my alley.

I have a feeling this post isn't going to make me very popular. I'm fully aware of how well and widely loved these books are, as well as Sarah J. Maas's other books, but I don't have anything nice to say about this book or Maas, in general.
πŸ“–
At first, I wasn't going to read it because of how much I disliked Throne of Glass. But I thought I would give it a chance. Now I'm regretting it. I have no patience for abusive/possessive relationships being glorified and normalized. No one needed Twilight with Fae.
πŸ“–
I won't be continuing the series. I won't be reading any more Sarah J. Maas books. I only get to read a finite number of books in my life, and I won't be wasting any more of them on this author.

I have a loooong wish list of books on Amazon, and my sweet husband went through it and ordered one, just to surprise me. It took all of my willpower not to check which book it was. I love surprises, but I hate waiting! πŸ˜†

I've had my eye on this book for a while, but I'm still not sure what to expect. The map made me giggle though, so that's always a good sign.

This was a sort of impulse buy. I've never heard of it, but the synopsis and the feel of the book, plus the reviews on the back, pulled me in.

I finally bought the rest of this trilogy! I really enjoyed the first one, not to mention the gorgeous covers. And because I had some leftover money from a gift card, I got them both for $4. Win!

I finished Oathbringer! It's a miracle! I know it's 1200 pages, but I can't remember the last time I was actively reading a book for over a month. Phew. I feel like I ran a marathon. πŸ˜₯
πŸ“–
I currently have Otherworld out from the library. I've only read the first few chapters, but it feels like a Ready Player One ripoff. I think I'll hold on for a bit, but I have no problem DNFing books, especially from the library.
