Well, here I am finally posting two reviews for books I read for the Once Upon a Time II Challenge. I barely got these in before the deadline and still wasn’t able to complete my challenge. Oh well, there’s always next year!
The books I read for this challenge for the most part were good ones. I especially liked A Gift Upon the Shore by M.K. Wren. I highly recommend it. It is set in the near future after a nuclear war has ravaged the earth. There are a few survivors and two of them in particular are determined to see that some spark of culture survives. They are amassing a vault of books. This gives me hope even if the book has some nightmare inducing stuff. Anyway, here is more of my review.
The other book I read was a bit more light and breezy even if it was about witches and demons. Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison was a good start to the popular Rachel Morgan series. The only thing that bugged me about this book, and really nothing to do with the book itself, is that I kept thinking I had read some of it before. A good part of the beginning seemed very familiar to me so maybe I had picked it up at one point. Anyway, I’m sure I’ll check out the second one in the series because I really want to know what secrets one of the characters was hiding! Here is more of my review.
A big thank you goes to Carl V. for once again organizing such a fun challenge. It’s a challenge that gets me out of my reading comfort zone and I like that.
