Forgiven by Rachel Morgan
Forgiven (A Trouble Novella) (English Edition) - Rachel Morgan

I like Julie.
I also like Josh. The boy she left behind.
The more you read the story, the more you realize they are meant to be.
She totally has her reasons for skipping town, which you find out in the story. I think I would have done the same, to be honest.
I really love the sweet ending too. Everything I wanted and more happened!
Very short, but uber cute!!
I definitely look forward to the next in the series!

MY THOUGHTS

 
The writing is exceptional and the plot has a lot going for it...Two kids who are directionless but likable (they are all mostly directionless, anyway).  A sweet love story with a dubious break-up but maybe they can get it back, or maybe they can find a way to at least be friends...especially when a tragedy hits them.   The tragedy even has a bit of a mystery to it.  With all that it feels like it should be a winner.  But sadly, it was missing something.  For me, that something was an actual ending.  By leaving it the way she (the author) did...with considerably more than an open-ended ending...I feel bereft without some kind of closure.

MY THOUGHTS

 
My love for this series keeps growing...and I don't usually like Fae Stories.  This second book in The Folk of the Air Series, I liked even more than the first book, despite not understanding why Jude wants to live in the fairy world, to begin with.  I mean these fairies are evil, just because they can't lie doesn't mean they have to tell the truth.  They could just not say anything...after all... 

Fair warning, this is said to be YA, but I think it's more like risque-YA (I love it when shit rhymes).  Holly Black's fairies are not only mean they are quite naughty, debaucherous, even..  I think this naughtiness is a part of its appeal, at least for me...possibly a few others.

Seriously, though, that ending was hella crazy...I thought I had it figured out, but no.  Such an interesting turn of events...I can't wait to see where she is taking this story next...



I'm starting Queen of Nothing posthaste.

The Girl Who Could See
The Girl Who Could See - Kara Swanson

I actually enjoyed the story, its premise was good. But I think this book needed to be longer. I wanted to see more of the Fern/Tristan relationship (not just the way it went in the end). I wanted to see the guys Fern needs to convince getting convinced, but not in a snap of fingers. More development about the world that was, and how it bears on Tristan (I mean, the guy has seen that happen for years, there should be more impact on him?), would've been welcome, too; same about the lab and who/why did they do this.

24 Festive Tasks: Door 18 - Hanukkah: Task 3
High Rising - Angela Thirkell

Nighttime flashlight reading with complimentary cat.

 

 

Though if the eyes fail, there's always this ... (and to the cat, it doesn't make one iota of a difference!). 

 

(Task: Read a book by candle light (or flashlight).)
