Last week we talked about the book The Hazel Wood. I have finished it and thought it was a pretty good book that should get a sequel. It felt unfinished, and while I understand the issues that people had with it, I think some weren't as warranted as others. The whole scene about privilege that failed to have a point or educate any further was probably the worst for me. The story itself could have used less introduction and a meatier journey toward the outcome but I still enjoyed it very much.
This week I'm reading a book called The Bear and the Nightingale. So far it's a little harder to get into than The Hazel Wood but its writing is very rich and lovely. I think the hardest part for me is remembering who is who! I'm only a couple of chapters in so there's plenty of time for you to jump in and read it to discuss it here in the chat.
Have you already read Katherine Arden's book? What did you think of it?
