Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Hey guys!
Another day, another book review. As I am going through my pile of books I received with subscription boxes, I found this one to stand out. The cover art is stunning, and my edition has sprayed edges that sparkle. If that hadn’t been enough to get me excited, the story being set in a library surely did the trick!

The Plot:

Elisabeth’s believes are challenged when somebody breaks into the library – her home – and releases a dangerous grimoire. A book filled with magic that has gone rogue is a strong opponent to face, but Elisabeth is willing to make a stand…

The Rating:

I’ll keep it short: I loved it. Well, I’m not 100% sure about the end but otherwise, it is a wonderful book.

There’s humor, there’s tragedy, there are plot twists, libraries, talking books, and magic. What else could you want?
Margaret Rogerson’s world is enchanting and different than what I’ve encountered to far. I wish I could jump right in!

Top 5 Tuesday: Fall Reading Recommendations

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
This week I’ll talk about some fall reading recommendations.
Most of the books I mention in this post are from book subscription boxes. That means I had no idea I would end up having them. I already finished reading some of them, others are still waiting on my shelf. In any case, I am super excited about them!

The Beholder by Anna Bright

I recently finished this one. It’s the perfect book to curl up with when it’s raining outside. Add a cup of tea and get a splendid day.
Anna Bright drew her inspiration for this book from quite a few sources and you can clearly spot them while reading. She did a great job and – although I am usually not a fan of romance novels – I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Sorcery of Thornes by Margaret Rogerson

After I had finished The Beholder I picked up Sorcery of Thornes. I only got started a couple of days ago but I’m already hooked. The novel is about bad ass librarians, magic and dangerous, talking books. How could I not love this?

Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 covers of 2019

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
This week I’ll talk about my favorite covers of 2019!

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

I finally boarded the Leigh Bardugo fan ship. After binge-reading all of the Grishaverse books I can’t wait for more material from her. Although all the covers were beautifully designed, my favorite is King of Scars. It’s golden, it shimmers, it’s smooth, it’s almost hypnotizing.

I have a little confession to make: I have a new obsession. I am currently super into book subscription boxes. As, by now, I’ve accumulated quite a few of them, I also have some stunning new books to read. The boxes I ordered mostly contained special editions of the novels included (sometimes with sprayed edges), so that’s where I got all the following picks!

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I am currently reading this book and can’t help but to marvel at it every single time I pick it up. The cover is shimmering and I love the color combination. My copy came with sprayed edges in the same petrol color the background of the cover is and the edges glitter. Yes, you read correctly there is glitter.
