Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing weekend! It snowed Saturday evening… and then promptly started raining about an hour after, so snow didn’t stay 😦 I’m waiting for snow to lay so my son can play in it since he has never seen snow :-O

Anyway, this weeks pick for me was a book that I ordered during Black Friday and I am extremely excited for it to show up!


Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

October 10th 2017 by Philomel Books

Amazon:Β Forest of a Thousand Lanterns (Rise of the Empress, Band 1)

An East Asian fantasy reimagining of The Evil Queen legend about one peasant girl’s quest to become Empress–and the darkness she must unleash to achieve her destiny.

Eighteen-year-old Xifeng is beautiful. The stars say she is destined for greatness, that she is meant to be Empress of Feng Lu. But only if she embraces the darkness within her. Growing up as a peasant in a forgotten village on the edge of the map, Xifeng longs to fulfill the destiny promised to her by her cruel aunt, the witch Guma, who has read the cards and seen glimmers of Xifeng’s majestic future. But is the price of the throne too high?

Because in order to achieve greatness, she must spurn the young man who loves her and exploit the callous magic that runs through her veins–sorcery fueled by eating the hearts of the recently killed. For the god who has sent her on this journey will not be satisfied until his power is absolute.

    I got this book in a book subscription box but have yet to read it.
    I had my eye on it even before it was released but.. you know the deal.. Always too many books to read, haha. Looking forward to your review on it though! [Although I hope I maybe have read it myself before then but.. probably not. :’)]
