Vespertine by: Margaret Rogerson

Another great book by Margaret Rogerson. I absolutely fell in love with her writing when I read Sorcery if Thorns and this book was just as amazing. She has amazing world building skills and her character development is always great! I loved Artemisia and her story. The revenant was very well written and the story moved at a wonderful pace. There was a wonderful set of side characters as well that kept the story moving. The banter in this book was excellent as well and there was humor laced throughout. This is a world k very much want to read more about and I believe this is going to be a duology, which is awesome! And the cover! Charlie Bowater always does amazing cover art. Love it.

This book was provided to me by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

The Forgotten Garden By: Kate Morton

The Forgotten Garden is a truly beautiful book. The cover and the title drew me in right away. This is rather a dark story, but one that draws you in and makes you really want to unravel the secrets hidden in the story. The story moves back and forth between timelines and characters, but the author did it in an exceptional way. It isn’t annoying to be swept back and forth between the characters, because you want to know what happens to all of them equally. This is another one of those cozy books that require the drinking of tea. It is an amazingly written story and I would strongly recommend it.
