Howdy YAL!

I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies.

The Winner's Curse (Winner's Trilogy, #1) - Marie Rutkoski

Probably between four and dare I say five stars right now.  Yeah.  It's weird, after an extremely poor book January, February seems to be doing pretty alright so far.  To be honest, the plot for this one really isn't that complex.  I've seen some of these tropes used before, just not in YA.  And I like how Rutoski is setting this up.  The characters work, the setting works.  Hopefully, the rest of the book will keep this same quality.
