At the beginning of June, I went on a reading binge of Tessa Dare's Spindle Cove series. I read 3 full length novels and 1 novella over a three day period. Simply put, this series was everything I needed it to be when I picked it up.
It had characters that were flawed and breathtaking and who learned from their mistakes. They became better, stronger, more wonderful people as the stories progressed. The village they live in was as alive as the characters. The shenanigans the various personalities that inhabit Spindle Cove got into were fun and they entertained me.
That was EXACTLY what I was looking for.
(And now I'm going to pause here and tell you this this isn't a PSA for you to go out and buy the series and read it IMMEDIATELY - although if you did do that, I wouldn't be upset.)
I'm kind of wondering if other people will have the same reaction to it that I had. Honestly, I don't know. Book 1 hit my reading sweet spot. Whether it was because of my mood or that I just needed a little while to escape from reality with a bunch of strong, intelligent women and men, IT WORKED FOR ME.
I would love to hear what books (series or otherwise) made you do some fangirl (or boy!) flailing when you picked it up. Was it just good timing or something elusive (and possibly magical) that made all the pieces come together and drag you into their world?
Talk to me! I want to hear what you have to say!
