This book indulges me in not one but TWO of my favorite guilty pleasure genres: historical romance and western romance. It includes one of my favorite writing devices: following 2 storylines that are connected but independent.
Also, can we just drool over that cover for moment? I mean, both versions are just scrumptious.
“There’s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn’t mean love at first sight. It’s closer to love at second sight. It’s the feeling when you meet someone that you’re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don’t love them right away, but it’s inevitable that you will.”
I cannot believe I consumed over 100 books in 2016. That's a personal record for me. It helped that I rediscovered my local library after living abroad for a while and that THE LIBRARY NOW HAS DIGITAL DOWNLOADS AND AUDIOBOOKS. *reverted to my six-year-old-self below in the library*
GIVE ME MORE OF THIS BOOK RIGHT FLIPPING NOW. What in the world did I just read? I loved it. It made my heart ache. I couldn't put it down. I want to know what happens next. Please Katherine Arden, tell me what happens next.
(Warning for sexual assault) I've been wanting to read Pivot Point ever since I got the book when it was on sale at Amazon (LOL), but I never really got around to actually sitting down and going through it until now. And I wish I had done it sooner!
The Lazarus Curse was an incredible story that carries the feel of a Kathy Reichs Bones novel with a nod towards Sherlock Holmes. With its accurate historical forensic anthropology and anatomy descriptions and obviously well-referenced historical events, the author blurred reality and fiction and the result was incredible.
