Weeping Factor: 0 out of 5 Tears

*Donita Factor: 1 out of 5 Teapots

*Donita Factor: This factor will tell you if there are any steamy bits in the book. The scale will be measured by Teapots of Steam. 1 being just a little steam and 5 being… well…. you get the picture.

The long await sequel to the AMAZING Children of Blood and BoneDefinitely read it before picking up this one. But you should probably read them both. ASAP. 😀

If you read this one, AND YOU SHOULD, make sure you check out the author’s note at the end.
Sequel to Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, The Testaments takes place 15 years following the beginning of this powerful tale. Gilead is showing signs of rotting from the inside out.

The Golden Son by Pierce Brown

Yet another sequel! Make sure you read book one, or you will be pretty lost in this series.

Shout out to my cousin, Anna, for turning me onto this series – even though it’s taking me a while to continue it.

The Witch’s Kind by Louisa Morgan 

51TnCPHf5OL

I bought this book based entirely on this line of the book blurb: In the aftermath of World War II, two women with unusual gifts must protect a mysterious baby in a poignant tale of family, sacrifice and magic.
Granted, I should have read the rest of the description, as it was very different than I thought I would be. However, it was still an excellent story and very well told.
