M. K. Theodoratus - The Ghostcrow: A Tale of Andor

Reread. The Ghostcrow: A Tale of Andor by M. K. Theodoratus (2014)
The Tales From the World of Andor Series Book 4
Length: 57 pages 
Genre: Short Story
Originally Read: 17 May 2015
Reread Finished: 4 May 2017
Where did it come from? Originally I received a copy of this book from Dorothy from Pump up Your Book in March of 2015. I acquired this book again as a birthday gift to myself in June of 2016.

So back in March of 2015 - March 25th, to be exact - I received a copy of this book from Dorothy from Pump up Your Book. I had initially signed up to be part of a virtual publicity blog tour for this book in May of 2015. It only took me one day in May of 2015 to read this book - from May 16th, to May 17th, 2015! While I did already have two of Ms. Theodoratus' short stories on my TBR pile, this was the first book that I have actually read by this author.

Although I deleted the first copy of the book right after I read it, I had always wanted to be able to reread the story again at some point. When I received an Amazon gift card for my birthday in June of 2016, I decided to purchase several ebooks for myself that I had enjoyed. I purchased five ebooks to read on June 22nd, 2016 and finally reread this particular book over two days in May of 2017 - from May 2nd, to May 4th, 2017! After I had read this book, I immediately went to Amazon and downloaded another three books by Ms. Theodoratus to read for free. 

May you read well and often

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Emeraldfire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog.

Anyway, I started out April with about two hundred unread books lying around the house and ended the month with...umm...uncountable amounts of books unread. All of the books that I acquired this month came from Paperback Swap and an author.
