Books I've enjoyed...


At the moment I'm reading Ladies of the Secret Circus. It's by Constance Sayers and I'm reading it because I like the first one of hers, A Witch in Time . The current one is not as good as the first, imo, but it is keeping my interest. A Witch in Time is unique in ways that I can't disclose. You will have to read it to understand. If you like unusual and quirky stories, that have magic in them, you will probably like it.


I you haven't tried Beth Cato's books, I highly recommend them. Start with The Clockwork Dagger and move on to The Clockwork Crown. They are in the genre of steampunk and science fiction, but I recognized them as fantasy as well, in the best possible sense of the word. Story is intricate and different, settings are steampunkish and interesting. And there is a 3rd book in the series that I just discovered! I will be reading that one soon.


V.E. Schwab is another author I love. The latest series I've read is called Shades of Magic--it is unputdownable! Great writing, incredible imagination and a story that keeps you guessing until the last minute--Magic and parallel Londons is all I will say. She is the author of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue--another wonderfully conceived book and how I discovered this other series of hers...


The Once and Future Witches by Alix Harrow is a great book (if you like witches and all they represent--)super writing! And the first one I read of hers, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, is even better! Sorry not to give more details, but these books are meant to be savored and discovered, not dissected.


There are many more I've read in the past year that should be on this list. If you go to my Bookbub Page you can read more in depth reviews for many of them. Thanks for reading!
