So we were chatting the other day, and Judith was trying to get me to read The Selection, which I really, really don't want to read. Then we decided to make a deal: I'd read one of Judith's recommendations each month, and she'd read one of mine. This seemed perfectly fair to me, especially since Judith will also have to watch a bunch of shows as well. Mwahahaha. Anyway, out of this conversation came an epic plan: EPIC RECS!
Epic Recs is an impromptu book club that consists of just myself and Judith. It's all very exclusive, y'all should be jealous. Like I mentioned, each month Judith and I will recommend a book to each other, and we'll have to read it. Some months we'll have themes and such. For example, this first month has a theme of light versus dark. I'm sure you're all curious about what we'll be reading this first month, so - drum roll, please.
I've allocated Judith the lovely task of reading Arclight by Josin L. McQuein, mostly because I want to see if she ships the ship that everyone else ships. Do you get what I'm saying? Tatum, Christina, and Debby have already discovered the fabulous coupling in this book, so it's only fair that I force Judith to join us, right?
As for me, I'll be reading Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo! I'm not even going to complain or be sarcastic here, because this is an AMAZING first rec. I hope. I've been wanting to get to it ever since I finished Shadow and Bone, because Judith's tweets about an infamous sexy pirate and an OT4 made me soooo curious, but I haven't been able to fit it in anywhere. Thankfully, Judith gave me a reason to pick it up!
So, what do you think? Will you be following us on our adventures? Have you read either of these books already, and wish to cheer us on? Go crazy in the comments below!
