Do you tend to prefer your books serious or more

Do you tend to prefer your books serious or more lighthearted. I think we all prefer a mix, and every serious book needs something to lighten it and visa versa— but overall I tend to lean towards a book that will crush my heart or lead me to in-depth conversations on life. Haha. . That being said, I sometimes just need FUN and these books are that. I was just gifted a copy of “No Country for Old Gnomes” from @penguinrandomhouse , the sequel to “Kill the Farm Boy”, and am delighted and eager to start it. Full of puns and riffs from popular tropes, the most common comparison to these books I’ve seen is “Monty Python meets Terry Practchett. . The delight I got from “Kill the Farm Boy” was the same kind of laugh I used to get from reading politically correct fairy tales. It’s absurd, quirky, over the top, and so much fun. . A little taste of what to expect: “Enter three witches. What they entered was not a race. It was, in fact, a cave of ominous portent, which was different from a regular cave in that it possessed spooky lighting concept. This was achieved by kindling a fire in the cave and then covering it with the black iron bottom of a cauldron, in which something eldritch may or may not be stewed. But let’s be real. No one ever bought a cauldron and installed it in a cave to make a mundane soup. It was always, always going to be an eldritch stew. Especially since they’d brought the requisite bucket full of entrails, pouches of herbs, and assorted dried eyeballs.” . Honestly, when you’re in the mood for something like this, they really hit the spot for a good laugh and a fun way to poke a little fun at stories we all really love! . #nocountryforoldgnomes #killthefarmboy #delilahsdawson #kevinhearne #bookworms #bookstagramfeatures #bookstagrammer #bookcommunity #bookphotography #booknerdigans #booknerd #amreading #instaread #booksbooksbooks #bookobsessed #vscobooks #flatlay #bookflatlay #fantasyfiction #bookaesthetic #bookrecommendation #hollyblack #spiderwickchronicles #fieldguide #tonyditerlizzi
