Teri Terry!! I still have one book by her that is on my physical tbr, and more that I’ve not gotten my mitts on yet!
She’s a fantastic YA fantasy author and I’ve adored everything by her I’ve read so far. I can’t wait to delve more into her different books and hopefully I’ll love those just as much too!
We’re about to start out first full week of 2022, I hope that you’re doing well, that you have amazing books, and that we can make 2022 much better than 2020 and 2021 were!

The Gift is the first book in the Books of Pellinor (kind of…) and it’s the book I’ve re-read the most in my life. I must have read this book upwards of 50 times and yet I still adore each and every page!
I say kind of the first for two reasons. One is that in the US it’s titled The Naming, because it clashed with a book that was already known there. But in Australia (where the author is from) and the UK the book is named The Gift.
The second reason is because a prequel to the series was released! The Bone Queen, which is now considered the first book in the Books of Pellinor. To me it will always be a 0.5 but I still love it, it’s a great prequel!
I last re-read this series in 2020 and I’m tempted to add in another re-read in 2022! What do you think?

I… have a bit of an afinity for mugs to the point where my partner dispairs every time I find a new cute one! So of course I wanted to try matching my books to one of my mugs!
I’ve loved owls for most of my life so this felt like the perfect mug to start with and I also really don’t have many brown books so this was a fun challenge! There’s only one book on this stack that I’ve not read (Dune) and the rest I’ve read and I absolutely loved them all!! They are all 5 star reads for me. Maybe I should pick up more brown books? 😂🤎

The books from bottom to top are: The Crow by Alison Croggon, Miss Marple Stories by Agatha Christie, Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, and Dune by Frank Herbert
