Continuing on with The Bargainer Series by Laura Thalassa is A Strange Hymn. I immediately started this book after finishing Rhapsodic because I needed to know more. Is the Thief of Souls really gone? We know Karnon was the one behind it to some extent but the women didn’t wake up. Also, Callie now has wings, scales, and claws I’m very curious to see what’s going to become of those. Does their appearance unlock more power, or something else? I have so many questions… which is exactly why I dropped straight into A Strange Hymn to find out what happened next.
The Bargainer Series by Laura Thalassa, I didn’t look or read the synopsis before reading the first book: Rhapsodic. The only thing I heard about it was it was good, spicy to some degree, and fantasy from BookTok (TikTok). And I was in the mood for all of those things. So, I plucked this one of my TBR and decided to give it a go.
I wanted a lighter read after A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas, since I ended up reading the entire series multiple times after finishing that. And I couldn’t bring myself to jump back into the book I had been reading before I switched to that one. So, I ended up picking up A Deal With the Elf King by Elisa Kova. Which is a novel part of series called Married to Magic. These tales are not connected in a sense of characters, but they do exist in the same world. A Deal With the Elf King is the first (and currently only) book released in this series.
I have been playing A LOT of Stardew Valley recently. Not only playing it but watching other people stream the game. And at this point in my games, I’m just working on turning profits. The community center is complete in both of my game saves. I have a farm over on Ginger Island (still working through unlocking everything there) and in one of my saves I have Skull Cavern 100 Level challenge complete. So… profit! Profit means crops, but there are a lot of crop options in the game both at Pierre’s and the Desert Oasis. Not only that but they change by the season. These are your best options when it comes to crops to make the most money.
Did I stay up all night to read A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas the second that I received the book? Yes. Was I in the middle or reading another book before this? Yes. Do I care? No. Am I going to do a normal review? Also no… mostly as my mind is swarming too much to form a formal write up of my thoughts. So, instead I’m just going to share thoughts I had after I finished reading the book.
I saw this tag on Ellie’s blog, Read to Ramble, and she was tagged by Sabrina over at Sabrina’s Booktails, who found this tag on Prutha’s blog, The Confessions of A Music and Book Addict, and after searching through loads of other posts… I can’t find the original author of this tag nor could Ellie. If you know it, please share in the comments. But I wanted to do this tag since it looked interesting and I need something to blog about during the stretches between books. Since I don’t have time to read long books in one sitting at the moment.
