Epic Recs is a challenge/book club/recommendation program hosted by Amber from Books of Amber and Judith from Paper Riot, wherein you join up with a partner and recommend a book (or more!) every month. My partner is Lili from Lili’s Reflections and so far our Epic Recs adventure has been quite successful.

My pick: I picked The Storyspinner for Lili for a couple reasons. First, I know she’s a huge fantasy fan and I was excited when I found a fantasy that I had read before she did. Also, I just think she’ll love it. This book is full of romance and suspense and adventure and it just feels like a classic fantasy to me. I loved it.

Lili’s pick: Lili recommended to me Open Road Summer a few months ago and that did not end well at all. But I saw potential in Emery Lord’s writing and by all accounts, her sophomore novel is even more loved than her debut. So I’m going in optimistically and with an open mind.

  1. Hi, new blog reader here!

    I DNF-ed Open Road Summer, but I loved The Start of Me & You. I hope you have the same experience!

    The Storyspinner was a great pick. I read it a couple weeks ago and thought it was a great fantasy.

    • So relieved to hear I wasn’t the only one who didn’t like ORS. I started The Start of Me & You, and it’s definitely better in a lot of ways already.

      • Yes, same! I really thought I might be the only one. It was insanely hyped, but it was not my cup of tea. I’m glad The Star of Me & You is going better. 🙂
