There are so many good books coming in February! I think Priory of the Orange Tree is on everyone’s must read list… that’s the one I’m most looking forward to. Though I’ve heard mixed reviews so it may not end up being my favourite
Yeah, I’ve heard some mixed things too, but I’m hoping for the best! Although the size is a little intimidating
