Spindle
Spindle - E.K. Johnston Spindle - E.K. Johnston 4.5 stars.

My kind do not spend their days at craft or art. Our deepest desire is not for the making of a thing, nor for the thing itself. Rather, we thrive on the skills of those who make. We steal that time and that power, and we turn it to our own souls, and that is how we grow.

The Garden of Three Hundred Flowers
The Garden of Three Hundred Flowers - E.... The Garden of Three Hundred Flowers - E.K. Johnston Johnston certainly has a way with words; this free short story is poetic and suave, despite being just a few pages long, and I truly enjoyed it.
A must-read for any fan of A Thousand Nights.

⇝My Thoughts⇜ 

 

 

 

I found Hermione's attitude to be enlightening.  With an excellent cast of secondary characters and of course, Pauly, her amazing best friend.  I never felt forced to listen to this, I wanted to.  Narration is very well done by Jorjeanna Marie, I think she nailed Hermione. 

 Being a Cheer Mom, I was drawn to the Cheerleader aspect too.  I personally don't know of any high school co-ed teams, but my daughter assures me that they do exist.  Besides, the setting is Canada; maybe they only have co-ed teams???   Can't say I know much about Canada, other than it's mostly right above me, geographically…oh…and it's freakin' cold.

 

 

⇝Sex Factor⇜ There is a rape, but it's not graphic.

Star Wars Ahsoka - E.K. Johnston

I love Johnston’s books and I love Star Wars, so this seemed like a natural fit! The take on the universe, the aftermathy kind of story, was really interesting to me, and I liked the look at everyday life and resistance. This is about what happens when you lose the war; it seems unfortunately apt at the moment. Also, Ahsoka’s relationship with Kaeden and the way that played out seemed like a story I haven’t seen a lot of, in a way that seems realistic and true to the characters.

November TBR
Theft of Swords (Riyria Revelations) - Michael J. Sullivan
The Fate of the Tearling - Erika Johansen
Star Wars Ahsoka - E.K. Johnston
A Deadly Affection (Dr. Genevieve Summerford Mystery) - Cuyler Overholt
Cloudbound (Bone Universe) - Fran Wilde
After Atlas (Planetfall Novel, A) - Emma Newman

So here are books on my November TBR. Very fantasy/sci-fi heavy - but it's been that way for a while.

 

I have Theft of Swords waiting for me at the library and I'm a lil excited to be starting this new series. 

 

Fate of the Tearling is the conclusion to The Queen of the Tearling series and though the last book left me with mixed emotions, I have to see it through.

 

Ahsoka  - as a Clone Wars fan and especially after the EPIC ending of the last season of Rebels, how could I not read this? It's on my nightstand as I type.

 

A Deadly Affection is a Netgalley book - I need to get caught up and this one intrigues me.

 

Cloudbound  is part of the Updraft universe- a book I loved last year. 

 

After Atlas - takes place in the same universe as Planetfall - one of the best sci-fi novels I read last year. It's out November 8th.

 

Happy reading!
