The Golem and The Jinni

Time for another book inspired post!  I may have perviously mentioned that I’m a huge fan of audible.com – I spend at least two hours a day in the car driving to and from work, so being able to “read” in the car makes me feel more productive.  Right now, I am listening to an amazing book called The Golem and The Jinni.  It’s kind of a historical fantasy novel, and I am really loving it. I’ll admit, it’s a little long and it took me a while to get into/get invested in the secondary characters, but it was totally worth it.  I’m about two thirds of the way through, and I actually just purchased the physical book so I can read it when I’m not in the car.

My ring finger is OPI Taupe-less Beach topped with Nails Inc Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat.  My middle finger is a water marble using Essie Fear or Desire, Sinful Colors Chick Chick, and Essie Snap Happy.  The rest of my fingers are OPI Ski Teal We Drop sponged with OPI Unfor-Greta-bly Blue and OPI Frog in My Throat.  I tried to represent the beautiful book cover, the Golem, who is made of clay, and the Jinni, who is made of fire.  I didn’t realize until I was writing this post that the watercolor fire looks kind of like a face, which is just so perfect!  I couldn’t do it again if I tried.

I would 100% recommend this book.  It is a very interesting story and extremely well written.  If you’ve read it, let me know what you think in the comments below – no spoilers please!  If you’re on Goodreads, add me as a friend here!  And please feel free to share your book recommendations below.
