Review: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

Hello there!

 

In this post, I will be reviewing Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao. This is a spoiler free review so you can continue reading with no fear. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns is the debut novel for Dao published by Philomel Books an imprint of Penguin Random House. This book was released on October 10th 2017. The second book Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix is set to release on October 23rd, 2018. I believe this is a duology.

Also, Luke is able to put up with Becky who is a handful because she is so ridiculous but that is why he loves her and all the readers as well. It is never boring when Becky is around. One more thing Luke is husband goals. Continue reading “My Favorite Relationships in Books”

Coming Up in February and March!

Hello there!

In today’s post I will be telling you what I have planned to read in February and March. I have decided to start doing my TBR’s every three months instead of monthly. That way it allows me to have a longer amount of time to read the books that I set out to read. Since I thought about this after I had already done my January TBR this month it will just be February and March. My next TBR will be in April for April, May and June. The next July for July, August and September. Lastly, October for October, November and December. I really hope that this schedule works out better. Now on to the books.

1. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
