"It was so easy to find yourself doing the things in life you weren’t passionate about, to stick with them even when you didn’t want them and they hurt. But now the time for dreaming and wishing was over, and she was going. She was traveling to the other side of the world. It wasn’t just the ship that had been unmoored. It was her entire sense of herself.” ~ Rachel Joyce
This week’s topic was a bit of a freebie: Reasons Why We Love [Blank]. We went with secondary world fantasy—fiction focusing on a non-Earth setting—because it is one of our most beloved genres.
This one was tricky for us! In the last few years our views on sticking with books have changed often. Sometimes we’ve felt like it’s always best to stick it out and see if a book gets better by the end. Other times we’ve felt the opposite.
With our state essentially being in shut down-mode, we managed to get a lot of reading done. Let’s hope the same will hold true for May!
I think it’s safe to say that everyone’s March was a bit hectic. Ours was filled with trips, wedding planning, and a decent amount of reading!
This week’s feature made us take a gander down memory lane. Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for the prompt!
Though it always seems like we’re adding to our stack of books on our list to read, this month it seems like we’ve been adding more than usual. Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for the TTT prompt!
