In 1643 England Rebecca West I hoping for a little bit more than the dreary boredom of life in a small town deplete from War. But then the so-called witch finder General comes to town and she winds up in the middle of a nightmare.
Later is about a boy who can see dead people and who is going to tell you straight up it’s not like The Sixth Sense and I think as far as King novels go… it’s pretty darned average.
It’s not bad. It’s just there.
A hidden apothecary in 18th century London specializing in helping women get rid of “troublesome” men?
Sounds like a good Spring read to me!
I decided to try some poetry starting with an audio book of Lana del Rey’s Violet Bent Backward Over the Grass and I actually really enjoyed it which is strange because I wouldn’t say I’ve ever been big on her music.

And I’m actually not just talking about Ben Barnes!
So I put off writing anything about this book because of the ending but now with the sequel (Rules of Wolves) coming out Tuesday I think I can talk about that ending and the fact that while I loved the whole book…

I grant you most people wouldn’t think this book- a deep dive (well beginner level) into the body would be but I tend to avoid anything remotely medical in nature. Thank you anxiety. I also have tend to be a little bit of a hypochondriac. It’s a vicious circle.
So I picked this up with a little trepidation.
I think one of the first things that annoyed me was the early mentions of Nesta’s extreme weight loss but don’t worry kids it was equally made perfectly clear that her tits and ass are still great! (Insert my rolling eyes.)
Okay I was not ready for the Shadow and Bone trailer to drop today!
