I remember when this book first came out it was surrounded by controversy and people were taking sides as to whether the book was truly bigoted, so I wanted to give it time to cool off before I read it barring any judgment.

As always, Taylor blew me away with this one. It wasn't at all what I was expecting, but still fantastic either way.

2019 Resolutions

I didn't make my goal of 85 last year, but that's okay! I'm giving myself a break seeing as how I lost a job, bought a house, and got a new job in such a short amount of time that I haven't had time to breathe let alone read.

Even though I didn't read as many books as I would have liked, I read most of the books from my resolution!

The books I hope to read in 2019 are:

(carrying over from 2018 resolutions)
- Legendary, Stephanie Garber
- Rebel of the Sands, Alwyn Hamilton

- Muse of Nightmares, Laini Taylor
- Six of Crows, Leigh Bardugo
- Winter, Marissa Meyer
- War Storm, Victoria Aveyard
- The Way of Kings, Brandon Sanderson
- The Shadowglass, Rin Chupeco

I've been so busy lately with a new house and a new job that I haven't had much time to read, but I made time for this one.
