Favorite: Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb. This book concluded the Farseer Trilogy perfectly. I loved the detail Hobb put into the story and the secrets of her world that she is only starting to reveal. Fans of fantasy should definitely check this out.
Least Favorite: If I had to pick, I’d say A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines. But honestly, it isn’t a bad book. In fact, it is quite a good book. The subject matter is just so tragic so I can’t really say that I “enjoyed” reading it. I am glad I read it but it wasn’t an easy read for sure.
I had a pretty good winter of reading overall. There wasn’t one book that I regret reading or that I just flat out didn’t like. Another favorite is definitely Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. I was able to read some new books and some books I’d had on my shelves for too long. I also read quite a variety of genres and am quite happy with this list! Let me know what you’ve been reading!
