Hi, hello, welcome! If you’re a fellow Bout of Books participant, worried about the non-existent TBR pile, you’re not alone! I don’t have any, and am just about managing to read a chapter on the first day. On the upside, there are six more to go.
2018 is upon us and with the new year, I’m sure many of you made resolutions. For bibliophiles, this could mean reading a specific number of books, reading more diversely or exploring new genres. Beyond reading, some of you might want to pick up a new hobby or deepen your expertise in one. The Willoughby Book Club is a book subscription that can help you achieve those goals.
Premise-wise, Everless was one of the most original books I’ve read in a long time. It was very intriguing, to say the least. It presented a world where life and blood are currency. I loved this idea and really enjoyed how it was integrated into the story. It was ruthless. I think the details were very well thought-out, especially when it came to how the rich exploited the poor. I also liked the legends that were incorporated and how they pulsed through the lives of the characters.
