Week in Review: July 8

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

 

Work is very busy! I am reading Song of the Current and it’s delightful. Last weekend Nicole and I went to Taiyaki NYC for fish ice cream. It was very tasty and floppy.

We also saw Wonder Woman which was great in the moment but I have more issues with it as I get some distance. So it goes.

Here’s my latest from Instagram:

I have been promised cuteness and werebears and vampires in this novella by Cassandra Khaw (from Book Smugglers Publishing). Based on the cover I am not disappointed! Excited to have this as my next read. 💗 Zelda had made peace (mostly) with transforming into a werebear once a month. Luckily she has her amazing vampire roommate and her dream job at a fashion magazine to balance that out. 💗 Things get complicated when Zelda is juggling a date with with her high school crush Jake (alpha werewolf of Kensington) and the charms of Benedict the fae nobleman (and nephew of her boss) that she's been assigned to bodyguard for two whole weeks. Then there's Janine, Zelda's longtime crush at work and maybe the one who could take Zelda's almost perfect life to completely excellent. 💗 #bookstagram #goodreads #instabook #instareads #bibliophile #books #reading #currentlyreading #amreading #bookworm #bookish #bookgram #booktography #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookphotography #books #bookstagramit #bspnovella #novella #werebear #fantasy #cassandrakhaw

(If you are a US blogger and this novella sounds good, I have it up for adoption right now!)

"Everything has a spirit. … And those spirits want to kill you." 🌲 My not so new obsession right now is @sarahbethdurst's Queens of Renthia series. These high fantasy novels are set in a world where every aspect nature has a bloodthirsty spirit and those spirits hate all humans and want to kill them. The only thing standing in their way? The queens who use their magic to rule over the land and protect their people. 🌲 Daleina spent years preparing to protect her people as a Candidate and Heir in The Queen of Blood. Now, in The Reluctant Queen, Daleina is dying which demands immediate preparations to find a suitable heir. 🌲 Naelin is strong enough to be the next Heir. But she has no desire to remove herself from her quiet life as a woodswoman with her husband and two young children. 🌲 Champion Ven found Daleina and believed in her abilities when no one else did. He always knew she would be a great queen. He knows the same is true for Naelin if only he can get her to see herself the way he does. As time runs out, both Daleina and Naelin will have to accept that saving everyone they love will require both women to risk everything. 🌲 The Reluctant Queen is out tomorrow and both books in this series should be added to your to read list immediately. Have you read The Queen of Blood yet? Are you ready to meet The Reluctant Queen? 🌲 #bookstagram #goodreads #instabook #instareads #bibliophile #books #reading #currentlyreading #amreading #bookworm #bookish #bookgram #booktography #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookphotography #books #bookstagramit #yalit #sarahbethdurst #signed #thereluctantqueen #thequeensofrenthia #thequeenofblood #shelfie #mondayvibe #junofilter
