Review: House of Salt and Sorrows

Ghosts. Gods. And plot out the wazoo.

39679076._UY844_SS844_Annaleigh has just buried another one of her sisters. It seems as if her family had been in mourning for as long as she could remember. The islands they made their home believed there was a curse on their family. And when Annaleigh begins seeing the ghosts of her dead sisters, she wonders if they may be right. But that’s not the only strange thing going on.

I want more of this book! House of Salt and Sorrows is one-in-a-million. While being incredibly interesting, it also holds quite a bit of a spook factor. There were times where I didn’t want to read it alone because it gave me the heebie-jeebies in the best way possible. Mixed with fantasy and romance, the characters are incredibly easy to fall in love with. And there was just plot twist after plot twist! It was constantly throwing me off track on what I thought would happen. I seriously can not wait for this to come out in hardback because I will be snatching it up!

**I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for an honest review.**

#FictionFriday: The Night Circus

Hey book lovers!!! It’s Friday which means another #FictionFriday. It’s been a while since I’ve read this one but boy, has it stuck with me.

“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them, and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”

51gfkfjupcl-_sx322_bo1204203200_Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus is all about two young magicians, Celia and Marco, trained since childhood to duel. Suddenly, a circus appears as if from nowhere. Only open at night, it becomes the battleground for Celia and Marco. But neither of them could expect the relationship that would blossom between them. Now they must face their mentors and the fact that only one of them will come out of this alive.

Morgenstern poetically creates a world in which the reader will not want to leave. Magic occurs with every turn of the page. It is almost impossible not to imagine this fantastical world that Morgenstern has written into existence. I have a hard time picking a favorite book (because I have so many) but The Night Circus is definitely at the top of my list. This one will leave you spellbound!
