It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Dark and Light

The last couple of weeks have been filled with two very different books:

Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers

Continuing my reading of second novels, this is the sequel to Grave Mercy.  These two books (soon to be joined by a third) are fairly dark historical fantasy, but this installment was quite a bit darker than the first. In all honesty, it was a bit too dark for me at times. The book deals with some serious abuse and emotional trauma, and I had to skim some sections. I preferred Grave Mercy, and I’m looking forward to the third book, Mortal Heart, coming in November.

Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen

Sarah Addison Allen excels at writing ensemble narratives, bringing a diverse group of characters to one geographical and emotional landscape where their stories collide and entwine in moving ways.  There is plenty of Southern charm, humor, redemption, and love for all cast members.

That’s what I’ve been reading! What are you reading?

(“It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It’s a great way to keep track of what you’re reading and see what others are reading each week.)
