November is here! Only two months left of 2022. Eeek!
We consume so many books in a month, that we don’t always get the chance to talk about all of our favorites. So, we’ve decide to set aside a monthly post specifically for talking about our favorite reads that would have otherwise flown under the radar.
I’m not going to lie, after reading 15 books last month, October was always going to be a bit of a slump/recovery period. I am also a Halloween girlie, so this was unfortunately not the month for me to get any serious reading done. I don’t know why I thought I would TBH… OH AND A CERTAIN POPSTAR RELEASED A RECORD-SHATTERING ALBUM this month too, so I guess you could say my mind has been elsewhere. (I literally couldn’t listen to anything else for 5 days. My audiobooks suffered!!) All that withstanding, I still managed to read at least one stellar book this month! The Witch King by H.E. Edgmon follows Wyatt a trans witch ex-citizen of a fae kingdom, hiding out from his “destiny” engaged/bonded to the fae prince of that very kingdom. The best way I can describe this book is: “Very Gay Cruel Prince, but also has a legitimate magic system?!?!?! And very important…stabby politics!!” I also really enjoyed the multitude of LGBTQIA+ reps that were present in this story (trans, asexual, demisexual, bisexual, & polyamory)! Some very gay witches for sure!! In addition, I read the sequel book, The Fae Keeper, this month too. It was good, but not as good as book one.
Folks if you missed my Owned October Wrap Up post from a few days ago you can see my thoughts on a lot of what I read this month! Anyways. I’m currently sick so I’m like what even is a book? I read a lot of good books this month and they were all sort of equal in enjoyment, none of them are massively standing out (perhaps bc I am writing this while ill???), so I am going to talk about the most surprising book, which was Love Times Infinity by Lane Clarke. I’m so impressed with this debut and how it tackles serious topics and yet the book rarely feels bogged down or sad. I don’t have much more to say about it than emotional YA fans, y’all need to check this out out because less than 300 people have read this (on goodreads) which is a shame because I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read more from this author. I also did reread The Flatshare which is always a good time. The movie is coming out in December (I think?) and I am so excited.
What’s your favorite Midnights track?
xoxo, Bree (Bejeweled) & Tree (Mastermind)
