With Memorial Day 2 Weeks away time to check-in on my #SpringStack. I've 4 Books left on my original list. Added 2:
Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake comes out tomorrow. I've Kindle/Audible Preordered and declared tomorrow a Book Holiday. ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig Recently fell down the The Dark Artifices Rabbit Hole by listening to Lady Midnight and Today I will finish Lord of Shadows. Then I'm going to want to reread Queen of Air and Darkness. Can't stop on Book 2 of a Trilogy! But will probably put that on Summer Reading List. ⬇️
2y
Crinoline_Laphroaig After that next up:
That Churchill Woman on Audio
The Girl from the Channel Islands in Print.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue keeps getting moved to bottom of the stack. I doubt I'll have time to finish unless I decide to get audio version. ⬇️
2y
Crinoline_Laphroaig I keep putting off Crudrat because it's the last thing of Gail Carriger's to read. I'm moving it to Summer Reading as part of my Birthday Celebrations. 🎧 📖 🤓 2y
catsuit_mango I think cudrat is the only book from Miss Gail that I ve not read... I'm curious to know if you like it 2y

5/5 for the second in this series! Holy moly! I need to read the next book right this very minute. This book was so good. It was so full of action and drama and still had some romance! I loved it. I love the Shadowhunter world so much.

I forgot it was #24in48 this weekend so I'm doing it in the week instead. Good luck to everyone doing it!
I finished the tagged book on Friday, about to start Queen of Air and Darkness now.

LazyOwl I'm reading Infernal Devices at the moment and want to read these next I think 🤔 2y
EllanaRose @LazyOwl I read them in 2019, excellent books! This series is a lot darker, follows a different family, but still as excellent 2y

A really easy read/listen, lots of action - I‘m preferring this series to the infernal devices. Excellent ending - left feeling like I need to start the next book straight away.
James Marsters reads the book very well - it‘s a long audiobook at nearly 24 hours. He does superb voices - I loved hearing him speak as Kieran.

Heroes aren‘t always the ones who win. They‘re the ones who lose, sometimes. But they keep fighting, they keep coming back. They don‘t give up. That‘s what makes them heroes.

I have read The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices and must say The Dark Artifices is my favorite of the Shadowhunter series. Everyone seems to show up in the story at one point or another and the characters are more endearing, equally sassy, funny and interesting. Even her new characters are more three dimensional.

I enjoyed hearing the audio version of this while reading along with my own physical book. It made it easier to get through the fight scenes since I have such a hard time picturing those and loved the narrator and his different voices for all. I did find some of this book dull but still love Cassandra Clare and can't wait to pick up the last book in this series and see how it ends!

Bella looks a little unsure, but I‘m ready to dive in to this one. I had a full day PD today, along with grades and evaluation evidence due, so I only had time to sneak in 50 pages at lunch. Finally sitting down to read - and looking forward to April break next week to finish the series!!

Just like with Clockwork Princess, I don‘t really want to read this 😂 but simultaneously once I start I know I won‘t be able to read it fast enough. And again, I know the eventual ending for the main characters...but I don‘t want to deal with all of the emotions and stress in between 😬

bewareofwords I read the first book ages ago, but I have yet to read the next two books... It might be time for me to catch up. 🧐 I‘m such a huge fan of Clare, but waiting for the inevitable happy ending is so painful in all of her series! 4y

TheBookAddict Hi. I haven‘t read this book nor any books by this author. I don‘t know if you‘ve read anything by Leigh Bardugo, but her Six Of Crows series was good. You may want to start with her Grisha trilogy though. It‘s more of a YA fantasy series. The Hell Divers series is also good, but it‘s a post apocalyptic series. 4y

TheBookAddict Nice, let me know what you think when you get to them. I read Six of Crows first and then realized that I should‘ve probably started with the Grisha trilogy. You can still follow the story if you start with Six of Crows though. I don‘t think I‘ve read any other YA fantasy recently, but if I think of something I‘ll make sure to let you know. 🙂 4y

I am glad that this generation has writers who use their talent to show right from wrong. Cassandra Clare you hit it out of the park. Proud to be a fan. No one should be forced to a registration just because they are different than white, middle income Protestant even if you are rogue fairies. And I loved how Kit thought it sounded too much like history. Predators should still be registered. #learnempathythroughhistory

Daaaaamn that ending tho!! Ok so I‘m definitely going to have to pick up Queen of Air and Darkness very soon. Definitely agree with the majority that this series is the author‘s strongest work, and I really like the direction she‘s taking everything thus far. There was a little too much time spent on characters I‘m not as invested in, but overall this was super fun and wild, and like I said, THAT ENDING. Great way to finish my reading year! 4/5 ⭐️

Whoo. I spent almost 8 hours today finishing up this audiobook! Even with listening to it at 2.75 speed, it took me a while to get through! Rereading it, I still enjoyed it just as much as the first time, maybe more as I was trying to figure out foreshadowing for both the ending and the 3rd book(which I'm hoping to make my 1st read of 2019!). I'm not sure I'll get any more reading done tonight because of the emotional toll!
