Megabooks @Cinfhen I did very much! I read it for the BOTM challenge. I have not read the sequel. I usually wait for all the books in a series to come out before I read it, so I‘m going to wait and then finish it. And I usually don‘t like fantasy, but this was awesome!! 2w
Megabooks @ShelfRighteous I hope you enjoy it. It‘s really good!! 2w
ShelfRighteous @Megabooks I'll read it when the next book comes out in 2020. Hate to be left hanging for months, better to read the complete series😬 2w
Cinfhen I loaned my copy to my brother who never returned it 🙄I‘ll wait for the sequel before I start bugging him ( although I‘m pretty sure it‘s nearing on 18 months that he‘s had the book) 2w
Megabooks @ShelfRighteous @Cinfhen I‘m not sure if it‘s going to be a trilogy or quartet. I haven‘t looked into it yet. The tagged sequel has already been published. And Cindy, 18 months, smh, it‘s not that long!! (edited) 2w
ShelfRighteous @Megabooks Its called The Daevabad Trilogy. So the last book will come out in 2020 it says on Google. I'll wait till then😬 2w
Megabooks @ShelfRighteous Awesome, thanks for looking that up!! 2w
ulrichyumiodd I loved the sequel as much as the first book, so hopefully it will be worth waiting for, for you as well! Also, I agree, the covers are so pretty! I need to buy a hardcopy of the second one. 2w
ruskigurl16 Is this the first book in the trilogy? And it really is an absolutely gorgeous cover! 😍 2w
Megabooks @ulrichyumiodd fantastic! And the audiobook was great, too! 2w
Megabooks @ruskigurl16 Yes, this is the first book! 2w
NeedsMoreBooks How is this? I have it on my Kindle but am yet to read it. 2w
Megabooks @NeedsMoreBooks Ooo! Sorry I missed your reply! I really enjoyed it! I read it when it came out about 2 years ago and plan on rereading it as part of the trilogy when they‘re all out. 2w

Love, love, love. It‘s taking everything in me not to run to Barnes & Noble to buy the next book (I want to support my local bookstore, which is closed.) Patience is a virtue. While I was slightly confused with all of the different names to start, I just couldn‘t put it down! Please note, there‘s a glossary in the back. I loved the magic, the characters& the intense, multiple story lines . #booked2019 #muslimauthor #newyearwhodis

Brandon_Lee_Hayes Check your local library to see if they have it! I love buying books and supporting authors but there's nothing wrong with checking out the library! 1mo
Sresendez12 @Brandon_Lee_Hayes yes I love the library! They actually have an e-book available but their server is down and you can‘t download anything. Hopefully this evening! 1mo

I finished the last 200 pages in less than 24 hrs - 2x my usual reading quota for the day and a ringing endorsement to boot.

If you enjoy the settings of The 1,001 Nights or Aladdin, but with lots of political intrigue, history, and modern sensibilities, give this one a shot. Bonus: if you have some basic knowledge of Arabic, you'll get some fun jokes, too.

I struggled a bit with this book, as it is fantasy rooted in Muslim history/lore (a fairly unfamiliar topic). At the same time, I loved this book for the exact same reasons. The beginning was pretty slow for me. It could have been me struggling to keep up with so many unfamiliar words/names/language, but I feel the plot was also lacking early on. Half way through, I was more invested. I did audio, which helped with pronunciations. 🌟🌟🌟

Wow! Reading along, I was all “this is a solid 4 star read” I get to the last couple hundred pages and here I am 2 hours past when I usually fall asleep, having just finished a great 5 star book. I have a ridiculous stack of books from the library and I‘m sorely tempted to jump straight into kingdom of copper right now. Alas, sleep and responsibilities.

I wanted to get a good start on this before I officially committed to reading it. Nearly 100 pages in and I‘m ready to say I am definitely planning on finishing this, barring some bizarre turn-around that ruins the story. Very interesting word building so far, especially since I‘m unfamiliar with the folklore/mythology/culture that is the inspiration behind this story.

Had to stop at Barnes and Noble (which is at the halfway point on a 3 1/2 hour drive home from visiting family) and treat myself. I am so looking forward to reading this. My TBR is seriously out of control though. I could not buy another book for like three or four years and not run out of reading material. Lol. Oh well, they all spark joy!

Thank you @BethM for such a wonderful swap!!! The books are great- City of Brass and Court of Thorns were on my radar- and the other two look so good. And flavored coffee (my favorite), a paperback book case which I‘ve never seen before! And the other goodies.....just a fabulous swap. Thank you again. 😘

Started this on top of many other open books. Figured I needed a change and this audiobook provides it by both genre and voice. And it is perfect from the first "page"! Thanks Litsy for bringing this book my way. (Also what even possessed me to think I was cured of reading more than one at the same time?)

Blew March's budget for books a little early on the Audible sale. But totally worth it.

Also, whoever came up with the first in a series sale is a genius. Not good for my budget, but probably really good for Audible.

Muslim-inspired high fantasy with a lot of worldbuilding and a focus on the complex political squabbles between the various djinn tribes.

Nahri is an orphan who has used her wits and her gift for healing to survive on her own in 18th century Cairo. She is a skilled con woman who gleefully steals from noblemen who cross her path. When she accidentally summons a powerful djinn, her life will never be the same.

Bailedbailed

Bailing on this book was SO hard. I kept being in denial over needing to bail, but after 170 pages, (and a week & a half of setting it aside to ‘revisit‘), I need to bail and move on. I don‘t know WHY, the writing is great and the world is fascinating. It seems like it‘s exactly up my alley. However, I keep SLUDGING through it. Like, 8 pages in 20 minutes, which is WEIRD. Maybe it‘s the pacing? I don‘t know. I‘m so confused 😢😢😢

mandi1082 I tried to read this too but couldn't get through it, so I finished it by listening to the audiobook which was a little better. Still did not like it all that much. 7mo
Jess_Franzino @mandi1082 Glad I‘m not the only one. I‘m SO surprised that I found myself struggling so much with it. It‘s exactly the type of book I like. Perhaps I‘ll try audio. 7mo
ulrichyumiodd Aww, I‘m so sorry about that! I‘m still reading the second one, but I‘m loving it. 7mo
Jess_Franzino @ulrichyumiodd No worries ♥️ I‘m likely going to try it again in a few months, or perhaps on Audible. The only issue I seem to have with it is the pacing, so listening to it might fix that. 7mo
