First Impression Friday: “The Conductors” by Nicole Glover

I recommended this to my library several months ago and they finally bought it, and I was first on the waiting list! From GoodReads: As a conductor on the Underground Railroad, Hetty Rhodes helped usher dozens of people north with her wits and magic. Now that the Civil War is over, Hetty and her husband … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Conductors” by Nicole Glover

First Impression Friday: “Broken (in the best possible way)” by Jenny Lawson

I had to wait an entire week after the release of this book before it finally arrived in my mail box, but it was well worth the wait. From GoodReads: As Jenny Lawson’s hundreds of thousands of fans know, she suffers from depression. In Broken, Jenny brings readers along on her mental and physical health … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Broken (in the best possible way)” by Jenny Lawson

First Impression Friday: “Hollow Kingdom” by Kira Jane Buxton

I've had my eyes on this for a while, and it finally came up as an Amazon Daily Kindle Deal, so I jumped at the opportunity, not knowing entirely what I'd find behind the cover. From GoodReads: S.T., a domesticated crow, is a bird of simple pleasures: hanging out with his owner Big Jim, trading … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Hollow Kingdom” by Kira Jane Buxton

First Impression Friday: “The Lost Apothecary” by Sarah Penner

It's literally been twenty days since I read any books (I blame cross stitching and candle making, two new hobbies that I've taken up in order to deal with the crushing loneliness I've been feeling in quarantine), and I ignored this book on my Overdrive Loans until literally two days before it was due to … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Lost Apothecary” by Sarah Penner

First Impression Friday: “Lore” by Alexandra Bracken

I've been on the library waiting list for this book for almost two months as of this writing (March 4, 2021), and I've heard so many good things, so let's see what this book has to say. From GoodReads: Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Lore” by Alexandra Bracken

First Impression Friday: “The Witch’s Heart” by Genevieve Gornichec

Good morning, and welcome back to First Impression Friday! This is where I reveal to you that I'm currently writing this FIF post in February (February 23, to be exact!), the day after I received my February Fantastic Strangling Book Club book in the mail, The Witch's Heart. I've seen a lot about this online … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Witch’s Heart” by Genevieve Gornichec

First Impression Friday: “After Alice Fell” by Kim Taylor Blakemore

I believe this was February's First Kindle Read, and I'll go ahead and let you know that I am actually reading it in February. I've just read so many books so far this year (37 as of this writing!) that it seems I've got a backlog of posts to write! From GoodReads: New Hampshire, 1865. … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “After Alice Fell” by Kim Taylor Blakemore

First Impression Friday: “West With Giraffes” by Lynda Rutledge

I'm currently on a kick to try and read through some of the Kindle books I've got stacking up in my library, and I'm pretty sure this was either one of December's Kindle First Reads or one of January's, but I can't remember for certain. From GoodReads: An emotional, rousing novel inspired by the incredible … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “West With Giraffes” by Lynda Rutledge

First Impression Friday: “Opium & Absinthe” by Lydia Kang

After seeing Opium and Absinthe on several Top Ten Tuesday: Mardi Gras Colors posts, I realized I'd chosen it as a Kindle First book at some point last year but had never bothered to read it, so I found it again on GoodReads and decided that a snowy day in February was the best time … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Opium & Absinthe” by Lydia Kang

First Impression Friday: “Gods of Jade & Shadow” by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

If you remember, I received Mexican Gothic as one of my Fantastic Stranglings book club books last year, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story was chilling without being overtly horrifying, and it was easy to read, even if I knew nothing of the area it took place in. A few days ago, I came … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Gods of Jade & Shadow” by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
