This a review for the WEBTOON only!! The book is good, but check out the free WEBTOON!! The series is amazing and pulls from the book with some twist. I recommend it. The series is complete so you can binge it on the WEBTOON app. This is a two book series, but just one WEBTOON. There is action, romance, plot twist, and female lead. Rating 8/10 #webtoon #graphicnovel #booktowebtoon #poc #storytelling #curse #woc #book #freeread

This was a fun read. A retelling of 1001 Nights. I loved the world building and the characters. An amazing love story really. I‘m looking forward to book 2. #bookspin #readingchallenge2022 @TheAromaofBooks

I LOVED this book. It kept me interested throughout. The romance was fantastic and oh the heroine's outfits were so beautiful. It was perfectly paced and unpredictable. And the cliffhanger? Let's just say it's because of books like these that I don't start a series until the whole series is published. Looking forward to reading the sequel!🍁🍻

This story is about Khalid, the Caliph of Khorasan, who takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. When Shazi's friend becomes the Caliph's victim, she volunteers herself with a plan to outwit the evil ruler and exact revenge. Shazi delays her execution by weaving enchanting stories for Khalid & promising only to reveal what happens next if he'd let her live another day.
I'm hoping the book's as interesting as it sounds.🍻

Enchanted_Bibliophile I read it a few years ago and still remember that I enjoyed it so much I finished it in one sitting 1y

I love how fierce a heroine Shahrzad is throughout this story. She speaks her truth & holds her ground, but despite her stubbornness she's also open-minded enough to learn. Because of that, the romance doesn't feel forced. The tension builds nicely & doesn't feel like a classic love triangle, which was also nice. Once I put it down, I was ready for the next!

5🌟 Fantasy Reads!

I scrolled through my goodreads and these are all the fantasy books I‘ve given 5 stars. Not shown are a few magical realism books that I gave 5 stars, because to me they‘re different 🤪

Also, doing this has made me realize how bad I am at finishing series. Or even picking up the second book. Which I already knew 🙃

I‘d love to see your 5 star fantasy books @jinxmoon @Ash.on.the.line @starlight97

#5starfantasyreads

Chrissyreadit 8 of those are on my irl TBR - I should just create a shelf with them for my book spins. I‘m going to look up the ones I don‘t know about now! Thanks for sharing 🧡 2y
Chrissyreadit What is the title of the first book? 2y
Laughterhp @Chrissyreadit you might really like that one. It‘s if Jane Austen wrote a fantasy novel 2y

#20Series20Days - A wonderful retelling of the 1001 Nights tale. This is a duology with 3 short stories as well.

I didn‘t know what to expect when picking up the first book. It had been on my shelf for a couple years but I absolutely devoured it and immediately needed the next book.

The author is a YA author but this series did not feel like a typical YA book.

Day 1 - Series 1

After a bit of a slow start, this book really took off and I was completely hooked. Lovely writing, wonderful characters that develop nicely and never once made me roll my eyes, and an action-packed plot with a nice romance running through it. It‘s YA, but didn‘t really feel like it, if that makes sense.

Great pick for #LMPBC, Chrissy! I have the second book checked out from the library already.😃

Will mail this week to my #LMPBC group. @ElizaMarie I‘m procrastinating my schoolwork to read- but I bet this would be a good audiobook. Hope your ride is going well! #isolationinteraction

Tagging my #LMPBC book ❤️
excited today is Day 1 BFC28- mantel health version

FYI friends- I‘ve noticed I‘ve been tagged and see it in feed, not notifications- so tagging may be glitchy🤣

Post and share your mental health resources.
My BFC goal: listen to 10percent Happier Daily post and meditation.
Pick one house goal and complete it each day.
Will make a separate post about reading goals.

tracey38 I still have to work every day because I work in a cancer center. And it's been so stressful during this time. I try to come home and just get out of my own head: read, journal, watch something fun on tv, my sister texts pics or videos of my nieces playing at their house, I started the free 60 day trial of Daily Burn to do a short workout or yoga. I sleep with onger/nap on weekends because I'm so tired. 🙂 Whatever I can. 3y

This is the first time I cannot find one of my books, namely this one.😅 I‘m going to vienna tomorrow to finish moving out of my flat and I really hope it is still there🙈

Anyway: I finished this book yesterday on Audible and I did not grasp that it was not a standalone😭 I already used up my current credit but by the end of the month this will be my next audible pick. There should be a BIG warning lable to prevent such surprises.

I had never heard of this book prior to seeing an ad for a WebToon adaptation - I read the first installment (which only goes through the prologue) & figured the story sounded good - holy crap I borrowed it on OverDrive and I am HOOKED. This one will definitely be finished quickly. (Also peep my grouchy reading buddy - he‘s been a butt to the other three cats all week🤦🏻‍♀️) #catsoflitsy #readingbuddy #snugglebug

I‘d contradict a saying that a good book is one you couldn‘t put down. There are lots of great books I enjoyed and still took me days or weeks to finish.

But this isn‘t one of them.

Finished in one sitting. Exactly my kind of pleasure reading. It has a vibe very much like Uprooted. You get the idea.

Thanks @TheLondonBookworm a bunch for introducing me to this! 😘🙌🏼

Heart talk is heart warming. I don‘t want to be crazy is about anxiety. Hopefully I can get through them in these lovely awesome books during these glorious 2 weeks that I don‘t have doctor‘s appointments, lol. Here‘s #Ozzie checking out the books, lol 😻

I understand that this was cheesy. But God, did I love it! The hate to love romance was so perfect, even though I thought I would hate that aspect of the story at the beginning. Sharzard's stories gave the setting such a feeling of fantasy. I loved the magic carpet element. And Despina, Jalal, and Khalid were all fantastic characters.

Slight trigger warning for animal deaths.

I can't wait to get my hands on the second one after that ending!

My ambitious #weeklyforecast for the week. The 2 on the left are ebook library loans, 2 in the middle are physical reads, and the 2 on the right are current audiobooks. At the very least, I'm hoping to finish Hunter and The Wrath and the Dawn this week 😊 Almost done with Hunter, and it has been amazing so far! The Wrath and the Dawn is so good so far, too! Very different teen fantasies
