Hello fellow boozie readers!
I think this is going to be a new thing I do every week. I want to talk about what I’ve read, what I’m reading, give you some thoughts. If this format doesn’t work, I’ll figure something else out… we’ll see.
What I finished this week:
- Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard: Wow. This book was fabulous. I’m going to be doing a full review but it was so good. I also might have finished this while I was in Cuba for vacation. What an AMAZING vacation.
What I’m reading now:
- The Bird King by G. Willow Wilson: This is a fantasy story set in the Iberian Peninsula during Ferdinand and Isabella’s reign as they unify into one Spain. The issue is that Grenada, the last Muslim province, rejects this premise and is at war. Our main character is Fatima, a courtesan in the sultan’s harem. Her bff is Hassan, the court map maker and everything that he draws becomes real. This book is fabulous so far. I am about 30% through and love it.
- The Black Powder War by Naomi Novik: This is the third book in the Temeraire series. Napoleonic wars with dragons. I’m listening to this on audio and am still enjoying the hell out of it.
- Everless by Sara Holland: This book where years of your life are currency. YA Political Intrigue fantasy. I’m also audioing this one. I couldn’t finish it by the time it went back to the library so currently waiting for my hold to come through.
What do you think about this format everyone? Is there something else you want to see?
Until next time, we remain forever drunkenly yours,
