Didn’t blog a single Spine Study this month but here’s a few Mini-Reviews on some of my “late” February through March reads.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ // Seriously though. What an intense, beautiful read.
Persuasion by Jane Austen – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ // Everybody talks on and on about Pride and Prejudice but Persuasion is (so far) my favorite Austen novel. (Wentworth’s letter…swoon!)
A Dangerous Collaboration by Deanna Raybourn – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ // Favorite book of the month, mainly because I eat, sleep, and breathe the two main characters. Can not recommend this series enough, y’all. ❤️
In Another Time by Jillian Cantor – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ // An unexpected surprise. I had mixed feelings overall but couldn’t tear my eyes away from the pages.
The Ranger by Ace Atkins – ⭐️⭐️⭐️ // Sounds harsh but nothing particularly special to make Quinn stand out from the crowd. 🤷🏻♀️
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman – ⭐️⭐️⭐️ // Strange yet lush. Seems that’s how I describe everything I read by Gaiman.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ // Romantic, atmospheric read. I’m not 100% sure I didn’t fall in love with Dawsey within the first letter he penned.
Fierce Fairytales by Nikita Gill – ⭐️⭐️ // Disappointment of the month. I could go on for days about why I didn’t like this one but I’ll leave at this: very regurgitative. Same ideas over and over with no real…depth to any of the poems.
A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer- ⭐️⭐️⭐️ // Another March read I was hoping would present more. Overall, fun retelling and stayed up late to finish after a lazy Sunday spent with it.
