When Apaay’s sister, Eska’s face is stolen by the legendary creature known as the Face Stealer, she travels to where no one dares to go, the Face Stealers lair, to take it back. But her journey does not go as planned, and she finds herself trapped in a labyrinth by a girl, Yuki. Yuki promises her freedom if only Apaay can find Eska’s face, and a face Yuki is searching for. But the labyrinth, and those inside, are not what they seem. Including the Face Stealer himself.

I know, it’s been a while since I’ve done a TBR and Favorites post. December (and early January for that matter) was insane, and I was mostly prioritizing end of year posts and reviews. I wanted to have this posted last week, but I was in Disney, and the WordPress app hates me so I couldn’t get it up on time. So, despite the month being almost over, I still want to share my January TBR.
Also, since I missed my November favorites wrap up, I thought I’d combine it with my December favorites here. Yeah, I got quite a bit to talk about today, so let’s get to it!
