[quote]Epic Recs is hosted by the lovely Judith (Paper Riot) and Amber (Books of Amber). It is a feature where each month, you and your partner force a book onto each other, or to put it nicely, recommend one to read. My partner in crime will be the one-and-only Charlotte of The Simple Tales. Let the fun (*ahem* pain) begin![/quote]
Oh boy, well, guys. I have to make an announcement, and that is…I failed March’s Epic Reads. *hides and cries* I never read Stormdancer. I had every intention to read it, but it just didn’t happen. The main reason: I became enamored with my OUTLAW BABES project, so I was spending a lot of my time developing and writing about my characters.
(Cee: 2, Charlotte: 3. I guess Charlotte wins this round. As if there’s something to be won here. Ha.)
For this month’s Epic Recs, I’m recommending Charlotte White Cat by Holly Black. This is totally a Cee book that people need to be read. It has con artists/grifters, magical powers, male POV, and BROTHERS. ALL MY FAVORITE THINGS. Initially, I hadn’t thought much about the book when I first read it, but when I was talking about it with a friend, I realized that it had so many of my favorite tropes, and the relationship of the brothers, guys, wow. Such an emotional ride. I cannot wait until Charlotte reads it!
Charlotte recommended me The Year of Shadows by Claire Legrand. I adore Claire Legrand’s work. I’ve only read The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls, and when I think back on that book, I just remember it so fondly. What I’m most excited about The Year of Shadows is the Gothic-ness of it! I’m just a fan of that genre because I love that dark and creepy. And apparently, there’s family goodness? Yeeeessss. You can read her Epic Recs post about why she recommended me this book.
