Aquicorn Cove by Katie O’Neill
I am pretty sure (read 100% sure) that Goodreads recommended Aquicorn Cove to me because I have just finished reading The Tea Dragon Society. I have also previously read Katie O’Neill’s book Princess Princess Ever After for this very Book Bingo.
The story of Aquicorn Cove is very nice in a bittersweet way. The book touches on the feelings of loss from a young girl for her mother as well as the disconnect between her Aunt and looking after the environment around her.
Once again O’Neill has made a quietly poignant graphic novel that is not only beautiful to look at, but one that tells a subtle but important story. Whereas The Tea Dragon Society touches on tradition and change, Aquicorn Cove is all about sustainability and looking after the environment. The message that we should only take what we need is one that comes across quite clearly in the book.
I do believe that for this tile and challenge, Goodreads recommended a suitable and entertaining pick.
Re-Read a Previous Challenge
Only chosen b/c of a pretty cover.
Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean.
The previous challenge is referring to my Book Bingo Challenge that I completed in 2015. For my selection this year I picked Wicked and the Wallflower because honestly, look at that cover. The colours just pop and I quite literally only read the book because I was pulled in by the cover.
While this wasn’t my first Sarah Maclean novel, I read Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake a few years ago, very quickly I remembered that I enjoyed her writing. It’s been my experience that the characters within her books have always been a bit unusual for their time and they are just the best to read. I really enjoyed the romantic pair in Wicked and the Wallflower and am looking forward to the second book in the series, Brazen and the Beast.
