What I’ve Been Reading:

I was on a Charlie Holmberg kick last week. I read her:

Veins of GoldDesperate to save her siblings from poverty, a young woman discovers magic fueled by gold . . . and a love for the man who wields it.

The Fifth DollMatrona lives in an isolated village, but a visit to Slava, the local tradesman, threatens to upend her entire life. Entering his empty house, Matrona discovers a strange collection of painted nesting dolls—one for every villager. But Slava’s dolls are much more than they seem.

Forced to open one of her own dolls every three days, nothing can prepare her for the profound secret hiding inside the fifth doll.

and Followed by FrostSeventeen-year-old Smitha’s wealth, status, and beauty make her the envy of her town—until she rejects a strange man’s marriage proposal and disastrous consequences follow. Smitha becomes cursed, and frost begins to encompass everything she touches. Will regrets over the past and an unexpected desire for a man she cannot touch be enough to warm Smitha’s heart, or will Death forever still it?

Plus, Seanan McGuire’s Where the Drowned Girls Go, book 7 of the Wayward Children series.

There is another school for children who fall through doors and fall back out again. It isn’t as friendly as Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. And it isn’t as safe.
