top ten thursday: 2019 releases

It’s this time of the year again – the beginning of … well, a new year in which normal people talk about their New Year’s resolutions while all the readers talk about the books being released in the next 365 days. To be fair – there are quite a lot of books coming out every year and keeping an eye on all of them isn’t the easiest thing. I won’t exclude myself from this group because while thinking about this blog post, I made several lists to keep track of all the releases I didn’t want to miss.

review: the oddling prince by nancy springer

What is a friend? Troth without end.
A light in the eyes, a touch of the hand –

Thinking about facing one’s fate head on is perfectly fine when it’s theoretical, distant, a glimmer of an idea, not even the idea itself.
