Weekly reading review: 9/16-9/22

I’m attempting something new here–a weekly round up of my reading. If you have any feedback about the format, etc, leave me a comment!

What I finished:
Blood Oath by Amanda McCrina–The second in a duology? series? I wasn’t quite sure based on the ending. Amanda is a friend, but I also genuinely like her books a lot. If a historical fantasy with echoes of Megan Whalen Turner and Rosemary Sutcliff, strong characterization and taut dialogue sounds like your thing, I’d recommend Blood Road & Blood Oath.

What I’m currently reading:
Hullmetal Girls by Emily Skrutskie–I’ve literally JUST started this one, so I don’t have much of a sense of it yet
The Likeness by Tana French [ebook]–trippy setup and a bit reminiscent of Brat Farrar; I’m liking French’s prose a lot
Point of Dreams by Melissa Scott and Lisa Barnett–I liked the first one in the series and expect to enjoy this one too; they’re quieter reads so it’s a good book to dip in and out of

What I’m planning to read next:
Sadie by Courtney Summers
Finding Yvonne by Brandy Colbert
Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse
