1. Frost, The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
I cannot tell you how much I’m enjoying this book. It’s one of my favorite genres, myths and legends combination and retelling, and oh, reading it is just a pleasure. The writing is lyrical and magical and intoxicating and today I’m not dropping it from my hand before I finish it.
