A Conjuring of Light is the third book in the Darker Shade of Magic series, and oh my heart. The last one ended on a huuuuuuge cliffhanger, and this one made it all better. For about five seconds. Now everything’s going crazy again, and I’m worried for everyone.

I’m just a few chapters into I Was Anastasia, and it’s not quite what I expected. First it tells you that you’ll have to decide for yourself whether you thought she was truly Anastasia or not when you get to the end. Ugh. Then started with Anastasia as a very old woman and keeps moving back a few months or years at a time, and a few larger jumps back to her childhood before going back to her old age. It’s a bit confusing.

These Violent Delights was great. It very realistically depicted the very real problem we’re seeing in society of men in power sexually assaulting women. Here is my full review.

11th Hour is more Women’s Muder Club. This one had quite a gross murder. I feel like the end was a little rushed.

I loved The City of Brass. I got confused a few times about the difference between “daeva” and “djinn” and what religion what was what, but otherwise it was wonderful! I love Nahri, she’s very much not what you would expect of a woman in that time and place (15th century, I think it was, Cairo/middle east). And Dara!! 🙂 😦 #nospoilers Review coming Monday, I think.

Spindle Fire was also quite good. I love Isabelle was still so wild and willing to move outside her comfort zone, even though she’s blind. I wasn’t super into Aurora though. She really had no fight in her, until later in the book. I really like how I can’t guess what’s going to happen in the next book – and that I’m having a hard time deciding what I would even like to happen. There are a lot of ways it could go that I would be very happy with. Review coming next week, I think.

I’ve wanted to read some Anne Rice for a while, so hopefully Interview With the Vampire is a good place to start! I have to read The Four Agreements for my Yoga Teacher Training, but it seems like it will be a very informative and very fast one, and rather seasonally appropriate. Children of Daedala was the first book I found on NetGalley that I really wanted to read, and now I’ve read Children of Icarus so it’s finally time!
