This story might have the most brutal twist of any I’ve ever read. It was fucking fantastic, and I can’t wait to continue the series.

I did not know this was written in (sort of) rhyming verse, but I’m not upset. It gives it a nice flow.
Title: Kushiel’s Dart
Series Title: Phèdre’s Trilogy
Author: Jacqueline Carey
Date Added: February 21, 2012
Date Started: August 23, 2019
This novel is like ASOIAF but less graphic and also told from one point of view. A character literally talks verbatim about the “game of thrones” in reference to court politics. There’s a reason for the dramatis personae in the beginning as well as the map; both of which I constantly refer to in order to keep up with who’s who and where’s where.
Title: The Hero With a Thousand Faces
Author: Joseph Campbell
Date Added: April 24, 2014
Date Started: December 3, 2018
“Society lapses into mistake and disaster. The Little Ego has usurped the judgment seat of the Self.” Campbell was a prognosticator.
I’m been drinking cider mimosas (apple cider and champagne). It’s the perfect autumn contemporary to pumpkin spice as well as an alternative to regular OJ mimosas. I’m kind of disappointed because I can’t find my favorite Halloween candy, mellowcreme pumpkins, in stores. So I bought some from Amazon, and I don’t like them. They’re Jelly Belly brand, and you’d think a company famous for its jellybeans would know how to make other candy (or…not?). They kind of taste like orange slices (the candy) but with the consistency of the pumpkins, and I am not a fan. The funny thing is Amazon had Brach’s brand available, but fancy TSN had to go with the more prestigious brand. Live and learn I suppose.
What is your favorite Halloween candy?
