Last Year I Was Reading…

I seen this book meme over on Kristin @ Kristina Kraves Books and I just had to give it a go… It was originally created by Reading Marie!

It is so easy to join in and here are the rules:

Take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to…

Blood Heir by Amelie Wen Zhao

The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

Funnily enough these are both two books focused around Russian lore. One is a loose retelling of the myth surrounding Anastasia Romanov and the other is based upon Russian folklore and stories. Both are YA fantasy books that are a part of a series and I gave both of them 4 stars. I liked both books equally and highly recommend them if you are a fan of a whimsical and atmospheric tales!

Russian Inspired Reads

Over the last couple of years I’ve tried tried to broaden my reading horizons and pick up books with different settings and cultures from my own and I’ve come across one particular setting that I have really enjoyed which is Russian inspired reads. Most of these are fantasy books and there is just something about the atmosphere and tone of these stories that immediately had me engaged!
