*Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book. This in no way affects my opinion.

Based on Irish mythology, The Wren Hunt follows Wren Silke as she’s chased through the woods every year as part of a warped game. If the people chasing her found out that she is an augur – someone who can read things in patterns – then the chase would become a lot more deadly. But Wren isn’t just being chased – she ends up on a hunt of her own as she sets out to find the answer to an ancient secret in or to save her family.

the confessions of frannie langton by Sara Collins

Goodreads | Book Depository

*I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for a review. This in no way affects my opinion.

But there’s a few standout moments amongst the tedium of what felt like a weirdly long month for one that has less days…so here we are!
