November is typically the month in which I start looking back on the books I read throughout the year, and those I didn’t get to. For the past couple of years this has also meant looking at the books on my own bookshelves that still sit unread – and this year is no exception. So this month’s From My Bookshelf post features three books that fit this criteria, and one more thing they have in common: they were all written by Lauren Willig.
The Hood of Aalayfa (The Aalayfan Series, Book #1)
The Hood of Aalayfa was published in 2016. I received an ebook copy from NetGalley, but as always, all thoughts are my own.
A Spell of Murder (A Lost Maidens Loch Mystery, Book #1)
A Spell of Murder was published on October 3rd, 2019. I received an ARC from NetGalley, but as always, all thoughts are my own.
My review contains spoilers regarding love interests and characters.
This week’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday (created by The Broke and the Bookish and carried on by That Artsy Reader Girl) is Ten Books On My Fall 2019 TBR. I enjoyed creating a TBR list for fall last year, so to carry on this tradition and get my current reading situation under control (it feels chaotic because I’ve started/am currently reading about six books), I’ve selected some books from my own bookshelves to read from September 23rd – December 21st. Ten of them are physical copies, and because I couldn’t help myself, I’m throwing in one bonus book that is sitting in my ebook library.
Melmoth was published in October of 2018.
I decided to stop reading this book halfway through for reasons I’ve discussed in my review. If you enjoyed this book, great, I’m so glad it worked for you! I will not be persuaded to finish it, however; my mind has been made up.
