Fantasy Romance

As Old As Time – Liz Braswell

Since I absolutely love fairytale retellings, this was a pretty exciting read for me. Liz Braswell told the story of Beauty and the Beast in a twisted, dark, and different way than the original fairytale that I really enjoyed. Definitely an interesting twist on an otherwise beautiful fairytale. Beauty and the Beast but darker, more haunting, and with cobwebs surrounding the castle! What if Belle’s mother was the enchantress that cursed the Beast?

Lore – Alexandra Bracken

Now, where do I even begin? This book was…unbelievable, to say the least. It’s probably my new favorite book. Lore is a unique story that includes Greek mythology, and, as someone who’s never been into Greek mythology, this really surprised me. Luckily for me, I had already read the first six chapters of this book through Netgalley, as an excerpt. This little sneak peak on the book made me so ready to dive right in, and let me tell you, I was hooked.

Rise of Knight and Sword – Miriam Wade

Once again, I want to thank Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review. Rise of Knight and Sword was definitely an interesting take on the Arthurian legends surrounding The Knights of the Round Table. To be completely honest, this book wasn’t really my cup of tea, but the storyline was intriguing and the characters were also pretty good. It didn’t have my full attention, in fact, I kind of just wanted to finish it to move onto something better, but I suppose it was nice to get back into a (sort-of) Arthurian type story.
