This week's Musing Mondays: "Tell us what you're reading right now - what you think of it so far; why you chose it; what you are (or aren't) enjoying about it."
Oh my goodness, how embarrassing. I got overly excited with Blogtember at Story of My Life that I forgot to participate in the last few weeks of Musing Mondays. My apologies!
I'm only one chapter in so far, so it's a little too early to say more about "The Bandit King". However, I had a bit of fun reading "The Hedgewitch Queen", so I decided to carry on with the series. I did find the heroine, Vianne, irritating as I got further into the book. Lacking huge amounts of self-confidence and being prone to swooning are fairly predictable damsel-in-distress traits, then inexplicably growing a small bit of backbone with no clear turning-point is just confusing. However, the storyline is intriguing, majority of the characters likeable, and the concept as a whole is entertaining - once I managed to look past the jarring mixture of old English "twas"-es mixed with heavily mangled French endearments.
Would I recommend it? Hmm, that's a toughie. It's a toss up between a 2.5 or 3 out of 5 chocolates for me.
