Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.


This week’s choice comes from a blog tour that made the rounds through my feed just over a month now, although lord knows it feels like a lifetime after everything! However, I’m giving credit to Haley at the Caffeinated Reader because she was the first place I saw it. You can see her review of one book in the trilogy, Winter of the Witch, linked above. The link below is the Goodread link to the entire trilogy:
