I‘m loving this book!
This was so good. So Laini Taylor, whimsical and vast, fantastical and satisfying.
I'm going to pluck book 2 off the shelf as soon as I can shift #GhostCat.

Friday about 5 hours - tagged book, Six of Crows (German edition), Fall, Or Dodge In Hell
Saturday 2 hours so far - tagged book on audio
Wanted to knit. Started a pair of leg warmers. Went back to reading and listening to the tagged book.
Started packing a parcel for a friend, made coffee and did some more reading.
Now I'm thinking of either reading some more or winding more yarn cakes, because I am suffering from a serious case of Starteritis (the urge to start a new project, or twenty).
Sometimes all the possibilities are overwhelming. 😜
Well, look who is slightly annoyed at my reading a physical book and parking it in her cozy spot. She's perched on my knees and I'm sure the claws will come out momentarily.
I've fallen into this story. Have been sitting out here on the balcony and only now noticed that it's 7.30pm and getting dark already.
The Dream chooses the Dreamer... 😀
I'm adding: the book chooses the reader.
I'm glad I've waited to read this book for so long. Right now I could, and actually can, dive into it. I've used the Audible test month to get the #audiobook, too. So, it's immersion reading for me.
The world and character building in this book are insane. Idk why it's taken me so long to read Laini Taylor, but I have finished two of her books in as many weeks and I'm REALLY liking them! 4🌟
Also, book #2 completed for the #DisneyReadathon.
I'm loving these covers a lot!! Seeing how much Litsy love these books received I hope they won't stay on my neverending TBR pile for long! 🙈🙈📓📚📒🌞🌊
That was fun—miss this world!❤️
My first chunk of #24in48! Done while running this morning.
I find audiobooks really helpful on long runs, to distract me from any discomfort & to give my brain something to focus on. This wasn‘t a super long long run, but it is extremely humid & got quite hot as my run when on.
Starting this one today since I saw #MuseOfNightmare (the 2nd book of the series) on sale yesterday, & l couldn‘t resist that beautiful sprayed edge! 😍❤️ I usually take off the jacket when reading a hardcover, that‘s why I made that changeable bookcover last night, so I won‘t ruin the spine 😅
Do you read with or without the book jacket?

I own two copies of this—the audiobook (free from Libro.fm for the 2018 Independent Bookstore Day) and the hardcover (I can‘t remember from where or when or how I got this copy but I know was after I got the audio). I‘m loving the audiobook—great narrator! great writing!—but it‘s a lot. It‘s long, and complex, and I feel like I‘m missing small things. I think I‘ll need to reread the (physical) book before I want to start Muse of Nightmares!
I love to multitask so my new thing is knitting while reading. I can‘t just do one thing at a time; I always knit when I watch TV or listen to podcasts while I do anything else, including letter writing. Do all the things!
“He had loved the library, and had felt, as a boy, as though it had a kind of sentience, and perhaps loved him back. But even if it was just walls and a roof with papers inside, it had bewitched him, and drawn him in, and given him everything he needed to become himself.”
This book is about stories, gods, and a lost city. Prepare to have you heart broken! Laini Taylor always does that to you but you won‘t care because she writes so beautifully.
My in-laws watched my 3 year old last night and let him stay up past midnight 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
After the 2 hour fight to get my poor overtired toddler to sleep tonight, I‘m too fried to focus on a book or even tv. Sleep timer set, and the beautiful words of Laini Taylor, and voice of Steve West, are going to lull me to sleep... this is becoming my go-to relaxation method at bedtime.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. The author‘s world building and character creation are excellent. At no time was i confused about what was happening or why. My only issues with the book are 1) that there is a lot of romance as the book goes on and 2) it ends on a cliffhanger, so it is not complete unto itself. But i look forward to continuing the journey.
I have the hardest time to read this book. I don't like it so far. I know it's an unpopular opinion but 🤷♀️
Does it get better?
Did anyone else struggle at the beginning of this book?
One of my favorite books the reread. . . Laini Taylor‘s book worlds are the places I most wish I could live.
I‘m on Chapter 16 of this book! And I can‘t connect with the story or characters! Has anyone read this book does it get better? What are your thoughts?
This book is brilliant. Laini Taylor is a master storyteller. The characters are well written with a mix of the heroic, damaged and villainous. I didn't want to put this book down as the story swept me away. With a sucker punch ending I'm so glad I have the second book on my TBR pile

So Sunday plans are tea and reading, I haven't stopped sneezing since I woke up...just hoping it's hayfever and not the lurgie🤧.
I'm really getting into this story, it has some great characters and a promising mystery adventure with monsters & gods a plenty.
