What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I am reading Voyage of the Basilisk, which the is the third book in the Memoirs of Lady Trent series. I’m about halfway through and it is very much a similar vibe to the first two, but this one seems to have more dragons! Our liveshow where we discuss this book with be on Sunday, May 1st!
I read Her Name is Knight for the Assassins in April Readathon and it is a difficult book to talk about. There are content warnings at the start of the book, and I definitely recommend reading those. A lot of the plot centers around human trafficking and this happens on page. It’s hard to read. I did think it was well handled and I will be reading the sequel. I thought the way it was told was effective, with the “before” chapters written in first person and the “after” chapters written in second person.
I didn’t know that I needed a Goblin Market retelling, but I guess I did. I loved Not Good for Maidens! It’s so atmospheric and creepy. I will never hear Scarborough fair in the same way again! I also loved the focus on sisterhood.
Other Words For Home is one of the books for my 12 Challenge and I’m so glad that it was included. It is a middle grade written in verse and I read it in one sitting. It was heartbreaking and bittersweet, and it felt very authentic.
I meant to read The Night Shift last week, but then I remember that I had to read Voyage of the Basilisk! I’m in a thriller mood, so I definitely hope to get to this next.

I have The Night Shift checked out from my library right now!
Amazing!! You will have to let me know what you think!
I’m glad to hear you enjoyed Not Good for Maidens! I’m going to try and listen to that one in May!
I am so excited for you to read it!
Those dragon books look like old school text books. Are they an actual story? (forgive the dumb question!)
Not a dumb question at all! It is confusing!
They are fiction novels but written as though the main character is writing her memoirs. She is a dragon naturalist. So in this world, dragons are observed and studied like any other animal would be in our world. It is fascinating!
Oh!! Okay, that makes sense then! They sound very very cool, I’ll have to look more into them!
Those dragon books have always intrigued me but I have yet to pick them up, lol.
I had the first one on my tbr cart for ages. Glad I finally got to it!!
I love that cover with the dragon. I’ve heard The Night Shift is very good.
The covers are so unique!
Enjoy your reading!
