Sunday Lineup (01.09.2021)

Hey yall. Not feeling super talkative today. I know, I know, that’s a bit counterproductive when you have a blog. Nothing is wrong. Just one of those days. We’re all here for the books anyways so go ahead and scroll on to those…


We Lie with Death // by Devin Madson


There is no calm after the storm. 

In Kisia’s conquered north, former empress Miko Ts’ai is more determined than ever to save her empire. Yet, as her hunt for allies grows increasingly desperate, she may learn too late that power lies not in names but in people. Dishiva e’Jaroven is fiercely loyal to the new Levanti emperor. Only he can lead them, but his next choice will challenge everything she wants to believe about her people’s future.  Abandoned by his Second Swords, Rah e’Torin must learn to survive without a herd. But honor dictates he bring his warriors home-a path that could be his salvation or lead to his destruction. And sold to the Witchdoctor, Cassandra Marius’ desperate search for a cure ties her fate inextricably to Empress Hana and her true nature could condemn them both. 

Why did I choose this:

It’s book 2 of a series with an awesome book 1 (you’ll get my review for that on Tuesday!) so of course I had to go ahead and read this one.

Current Thoughts:

I’m loving it so far! The long chapters are rough on my sleepy brain but it helps with getting immersed into each POV. I also like having a new POV that teaches us more about Levanti culture but to be honest, I wish I could just read about Cassandra for a few hours and learn everything there is to her story right now.

All Creatures Great and Small // by James Herriot // narrated by Nicholas Ralph


Since I finished The Book of Two Ways, I had a little more time to spend with this one. Adorable and heart-warming as ever.

No, of course that’s not me buying more books again….. 😉
