>> CURRENTLY READING <<
After struggling so much with my last read (see DNF below), this was an immediate breath of fresh air. I'm not even 90 pages in and I think I've pretty much figured out most of the twists already, but the writing is engrossing and the story really interesting. Already know I'll want the sequel as soon as I finish!
>> DNF <<
DNF at Page 128. An intriguing fantasy world and premise, but I couldn't connect with the writing, bring myself to like the main character, or find it in me to care about the story. DNF review to come.
4 Stars. A fun and adventurous story of secrets and revolution with bandits, spies, and magic set in an alternate historical steampunk-esque world. In the fastest turnover ever for me, you can actually read my full review here!
Komomo Confiserie vol. 1 by Maki Minami (PBK)
A new series from VIZ that sounds cute. Willing to give it a try from the library.
Waistcoats & Weaponry by Gail Carriger (PBK)
Unless a surprise review book appears in the mail, I actually have my next few reads scheduled! Coming up is a re-read of Finishing School Book the Third, to finally finish my review and prep for the release of the final book in the series November 3rd!! *flails*
