  1. A Constellation of Roses was wonderful! I loved it! Asebedo always writes such fantastic groups of females, who support each other. The family element was so winning in this book.

  2. The first of these choices is really hard! Winterwood made it into my top five so I guess that? Although after seeing the first few lines of the other choice I really want to get on with it. So I’m kind of torn now with that one :L I’ve added Last To Die to my TBR after seeing this post but I think I’m more desperate to read A Constellation Of Roses – the synopsis kind of reminds me of an Anna Marie-McLemore book (which I still need to read too, but they both sound beautiful in the same way). And for the last choice, although both are on my TBR, I’d say Song Of The Crimson Flower as I’ve been desperate to read the first of those for ages now.

    1. This is a really tough month for matchups, apparently November is THE month for great releases. Oooh, but it seems I’ve introduced something new to your TBR, that’s good! (or bad, depending on how you see it, haha). Last To Die definitely caught my interest. And I’m with you on Song of the Crimson Flower. It looks so so good!!

      1. It’s good, don’t worry. Even though it’s massive already I love adding to my TBR 😅 fingers crossed that we both get a chance to read it then (:
