A Touch of Gold was a book I really enjoyed when I read it. A King Midas retelling and that’s something I’ve never read before. Annie Sullivan is back with the second book in this duology. A Curse of Gold is out now and I was able to get an e-ARC on Netgalley to read and review.
I always like trying new things every once in awhile for bookish items. Today I decided to participate during #FaeFriday. This weekly tag was created by Kristy from Caffeinated Fae. Definitely check out her blog, because she’s the sweetest! She decided to create a tag that’s a bit magical and the header was created by her as well. Each Friday has a different prompt, so let’s take look at this week’s topic!
This week on #FaeFriday: We all know those classic fairytales, but sometimes a retelling can blow the classic out of the water. This curious wannabe fae wants to know what are some fairytale retellings that you have enjoyed! I love retellings, so I decided to take a look at what kind of retellings I would like to read. Let’s jump in. Continue reading “Bookish Item | #FaeFriday #2”
We’re both a big fan of The Lady Janies trilogy and have already read and reviewed My Lady Jane and My Plain Jane. After a long wait, we both finally bought My Calamity Jane! This was an anticipated release for both of us, so we read it almost right away. Today we want to tell you what we thought of the third and final book in this trilogy.
Girl, Serpent, Thorn was a book I got awhile ago and have been looking forward to reading it. If I remember correctly, the release date got moved back again, but this week was finally time to see this book in the world! The last month or so I’ve been seeing a lot of positive reviews about this book, so when I started my buddy read. Did Girl, Serpent, Thorn live up to my expectations? Keep on reading to find out!
A big thanks to Hodder & Stoughton for providing me with an ARC on Netgalley to read and review.
When I read that Spin the Dawn was being pitched as Mulan meets Project Runway, I have to say that got my attention. This book came out almost a year ago, but I just haven’t had the chance to read it yet. Last month I picked it up at the bookstore to read for a group read this month. I’m so happy I finally picked this up, because Spin the Dawn was so good. Keep on reading for my full review!
We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after doing Can’t Wait Wednesday a few times we decided that would be a fun one to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
I hadn’t read any of Sandhya Menon’s books yet and even though they’re quite popular I wasn’t really planning on picking them up. But when her new book was announced I got quite excited! A contemporary Beauty and the Beast retelling set at a boarding school. Some of my favorite things right there. So let’s see if this one lived up to my expectations.

Retellings are a lot of fun and have been very popular, especially when it comes to Beauty and the Beast. Hunted is one of those retellings and released in 2017. I’ve had it on my shelf since then and I finally picked it up to join a group read a friend set up. Today I want to tell you what I thought of this book!
House of Salt and Sorrows is a book I’ve heard a lot about in the last couple of months. After it released, a lot of people were really excited. I heard it was creepy, so I wanted to read it around Halloween. That didn’t happen, but I finally did a buddy read of it this month! Did it meet all my expectations? Keep on reading to find out!
