More #bookmail, but not as big a surprise as yesterday‘s, since I ordered this myself 😉 I haven‘t bought books for myself since January, but with my new job and all I thought 1) TREAT YO SELF 2) I loved Caraval, and flew through it in a day, and I need that feeling again 3) sooooo prettyyyyy 😍

I was vacillating between 3.5 & 4 stars for this one. There was a lot I liked but quite a bit I didn‘t like. My main criticisms are that it‘s all show & tell rather than character involvement which brings a story to life & to say its about a game, it barely features.

In the end I decided it was a ‘pick‘ so it gets 4🌟

#54 of my year & I‘m excited to dive back into this world. What the actual hell is about to happen? My anxiety is lurking over my shoulder today 😅

Caffeinated_Reader Omg I think my head will explode with everything that just happened. I can‘t believe all the sacrifices and love and pure insanity that ended this part. I so badly want to read Finale right now but I want to process this ending first. I thought I was jealous of Scarlet and Julian‘s love but my oh my it‘s nothing compared to Dante & Dotnatellas. Swoon. Unfinished business indeed 🎩 1w

Any Stephanie Garber fans out there? I hadn‘t read Legendary so I figured it was time now that Finale is almost here! I ended up liking it even more than Caraval, I think! Tella really annoyed me in book 1 but I loved her in book 2. Plus the whole new plot about the fates was really interesting! Are you guys looking forward to Finale next week?

“As fantastical as Caraval might feel, the next five nights are very real. Elantine has invited us here to save the empire from her greatest fear. For centuries the Fates were locked away, but now they wish to come out and play. If they regain their magic the world will never be the same, but you can help stop them by winning the game. To do this you must be clever and follow the clues to find the dark object that can destroy them forever....”

This is an entertaining YA fantasy series. I enjoyed this one more than the first. It falls into the typical YA tropes and can be a little predictable, but it‘s a fun palate cleanser after some of my more recent reads.

Sat and ponder on this one for a bit and I came to the conclusion that I did not enjoy it as much as Caraval. I found this book a little boring and I didn't feel like the characters where as develop as the first book. I couldn't connect with any of them so I didn't really enjoy them. Overall I gave it 3 ☆☆☆

Prettytears I have the books but I'm on the fence on whether I should start the series now or just save it for later🤔 3mo
mandi1082 @Prettytears I really enjoyed the first one. I loved the story line and the adventure behind it. I just felt like the second book was the same thing happening over again but with different main characters and for a different reason. 3mo

Mehso-so

Can‘t really call it a letdown b/c didn‘t have high hopes going in, but it def fell short of the 1st book for me, & I didn‘t love that one. Story here felt so convoluted, & there was so little of the actual Caraval game, just Tella wandering around & finding clues easily. She was pretty dim & inconsistent too. And OMG pls tell Garber to chill w/the ridic metaphors! Did like the Fates & Jacks & will read the 3rd to find out what Legend does. 2/5 ⭐️

I don‘t even know where to start with this book. Like the last, I think it picked up at the end. There were some parts I thought should have been explored more, while other aspects should have not been included at all. I wish the book was simplified a little. Sometimes less is more. I will be picking the next book. What did you think?

Intoxicating. That‘s pretty much how I can sum up “Legendary”. I thought “Caraval” was perfection, but then “Legendary” came along and was like “hold my beer” 😂 The Deck Of Destiny, the “Divine Comedy” allusions, the immersion, the philosophy sprinkled in there....AAAAHHH. Someone please send me an ARC of “Finale”. I can‘t. Done. Dead.

“If she were Scarlett, someone would have come to rescue her by now. Julian would have probably flown in on a hot-air balloon, and then sprouted wings to soar down and carry her away.”

I really want to like Tella but I don't. I really want to love Dante, Legend and Jax but I'm starting to get bored. I really want dive into an surreal fantastical world but I'm not sure it's fleshed out enough to enjoy. Struggling hard with this one.

GondorGirl I'm not entirely sure we're supposed to like Tella in this book. At least I didn't... I enjoyed the first two books, but I agree with you that I wanted more from the the magical bits, and the world needed to be fleshed out more. 4mo

I realised at the end of the book that Donatella was only 15. Yikes! Explains why she keeps thinking of men as “boys” anyway. I find her age disturbing and have decided to keep thinking of her as 18. Her sister 20. That‘s still young enough to make the silly mistakes and bad decisions. So now that I‘ve fixed that in my mind:
Fabulous page turner sequel to Caraval. Is there a third book?

megansaurusrex It's coming out soon! 4mo
LibrarianRyan Finale is due out this summer. I haven‘t picked this up yet (I own it). I liked Carval but thought it was slow and am interested to Read Donatello‘s story. 4mo

Spoilers. Amazing book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. 10 stars! I love Donatella‘s story. Searching for her mom she not only kisses the Prince of hearts but is his true love. She also sacrifices herself to save her mother but before that she falls in love with Dante, aka, Legend!! Then Legend becomes Emperor! Can it get any more exciting? LOVE! It is a rare book that makes me giddy and feel like a young reader again. This one did it!💖

Edit: Changing it from so-so to pick. I guess I liked it enough.
As a person who didn't like book one, I can say this one was an improvement. I will even read the final book, but it was still lacking something magical I feel this world deserved.

Tella is a much more interesting lead as opposed to Scarlet.

You can find my full thoughts at Goodreads if you'd like to read them.
