Bookish and Sweet Reads

I love to read. It's always been my solace, and though the themes and covers may have changed, the excitement of immersing myself in the pages of a book has never diminished! So here's the chance to get into my thoughts and rambles; my loves and misses; and meet the books that make me soar :)

Summer's Crossing - Julie Kagawa Another great addition to the Iron Fey Series! I was so anxious after finishing the Iron Queen but extremely glad that Kagawa decided to continue the story with another book. The only problem was that the release date for the Iron Knight was too far away for my impatience... so in comes Summer's Crossing. Summer's Crossing, much like Winter's Passage is an in between novels novella which continues Meghan, Ash and Puck's story, without dettering from the main plot. As always, I thought Kagawa did an excellent job with this short story. As a rule, I don't like novellas or short stories because I rarely ever feel that the characters or the plot line are developed as fully as they are in an actual full-length novel. Even though one could argue that Kagawa has the build up of three previous novels, it still doesn't take away from her brilliant story telling. No matter how many times I read her books, the characters and the settings just have a way of coming alive and taking me away for a ride. Though I'm a Team Ash girl, I loved having this story from Puck's point of view. Though Ash is the guy I wan't to date, Puck is certainly the one I want for a best friend. Even as the narrator, Puck's character never failed to suprise me with his wittiness and good sense of humor. Though there is some minor conflict on Puck's part with relationship towards his feelings towards Meghan, I loved how the author handled the situation. It was beliavable and still managed to suprise me with how Puck and Ash's plan unfolded. Though I was at first slightly worried that the plot of the next book would have Ash and Puck in a more central light (I just love Meghan's character), this novella showed me that not only can they both hold their own as characters, but they jump out of the page for me and just keep me going with my reading, desperate to know what this pair will be up to next. All in all, it was nice to visit again with two of my favorite characters. Thanks Julie Kagawa!!
