Listen… Leigh Bardugo is an amazing writer. She‘s got so much talent! But I just couldn‘t get into this book! Written beautifully. But not my cup of tea what‘s so ever. There were moments that sparked my interest. But overall, I found it hard to get into and sometimes it just confused me.

Bailedbailed

I feel terrible bailing on this seeing as not one but TWO people gifted it to me in swaps last year. 😬 I just couldn‘t take it anymore. Maybe I wasn‘t in the right state of mind for it… It was what I attempted to read most of the time I was sick. Might give it a second chance later, but leaning towards likely not. I found the characters, especially Alex, to be extremely unlikeable and rather boring. The writing style grated on my nerves too.

DGRachel Leigh Bardugo is one of those popular authors that I real want to love, but I‘ve bailed on everything I‘ve attempted. 😭 I just have to admit she‘s not for me and let it go. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @DGRachel This was the only book of hers I had read, so I don‘t know if I‘d end up being the same way. I know I tend to have differing opinions about some of the more popular authors. 😅 2mo

I read the author enewsletter that I‘d forgotten I‘d signed up for… and the vibe is it‘s going to be awhile.

She has started it tho but other *secret* projects were mentioned so high chance it‘s not her top priority.

So sorry to have disappeared in the middle of #screamathon. I haven‘t been feeling great lately and while I do have a partial answer (hormone levels), my doctor is running some more tests to make sure all bases are covered. I‘ve been sleeping A LOT. 😩 And not reading much at all. I‘ll be updating the Google form soon.

This was a fantastic read! Don‘t you just love how the snake pops on the cover?

4thhouseontheleft @LeahBergen Thank you! It‘s been building for months and I just kept attributing symptoms to other things, until it snowballed to the point where it interferes with daily life. One cause is early menopause 😬 and hormone levels basically nonexistent, so I will be going on HRT, but I am having my thyroid and a few other things checked as well. 3mo

4thhouseontheleft @Crazeedi yes, it does! Except I‘m in the way too young for menopause category, so it actually gets it‘s own diagnosis: Premature Ovarian Disorder 🙄 and puts me at higher risk of other health conditions later if I don‘t do something about it. It was likely triggered by my hysterectomy, even though I kept my ovaries 3mo

This book is a slow burn in a really interesting setting. The mystery was complex and I will definitely pick up the next one to see where it goes. The only thing I struggled with was that this book was very dark and none of the characters were overly likeable. Bardugo is likely going for the idea that there's no such thing as a perfect hero but at times it I found it hard to read. A very original mystery.

I‘ll probably try to read this again later on. Bc I rly disliked it. And I tried! Got close to 75% and decided it wasn‘t worth it. To be fair, I didn‘t quite enjoy Six of Crows when I first read it, but I LOVE it today… oh well

Johanna414 I've found that I really have to be in the right mood for her books 4mo
Nalbuque @Johanna414 exactly. Did you like this one? Maybe I just had high expectations from (re)reading the whole grishaverse books earlier this year 4mo

Leigh Bardugo was one of those authors I hadn‘t stopped hearing about since I joined Litsy, but I never had a chance to read.

That all changed when I heard about her campus/magic novel based on the secret societies of Yale. This book was much better than I expected, with some parallels to Harry Potter. Highly recommended!

GondorGirl I liked this so much more than her Grisha books. I hope we get a sequel sometime soon. 5mo

Absolutely loved this book! With imaginative worldbuilding and multiple mysteries, it's a brilliant blend of paranormal fantasy/horror and murder mystery. It's an intense, dark story full of magic, ghosts, demons, and a secret society on a college campus; and themes of race, class, gender. (Trigger warnings: abuse, drugs, self-harm, rape.) The flashback/flashforward structure suited the narrative well in my opinion. And the gritty protagonist Alex

GondorGirl While I enjoyed her YA books, this is the real standout for me. I can't wait for the sequel! 5mo

The tagged 📖 isn‘t even on my list this month 🤭🙃, but this is a #blameLitsy situation of a LIBBY hold that came through. I agree with @TrishB that although well written, it could have been more condensed, but I am interested in the continuation due to the ⚠️ cliffhanger. Also, this particular fantasy school society story was harder to put down. #recentlyread for #bookspin BINGO (free spot). @TheAromaofBooks

My only complaint is that it could have been 100 pages shorter, dragged a bit at the beginning, but would definitely read the 2nd now.
This was a #buddyread with my daughter, she‘s on page 200 and still enjoying it! Although Bardugo says this was an adult book not YA, it didn‘t read that differently to me.

vivastory It's been interesting to see some reviewers who have trashed her earlier books because they dismiss anything that's YA praise this one simply because it was marketed as adult. I've only read 2 Bardugo books. This one & Six of Crows. I loved both & I agree. They really didn't feel too different to me. 7mo
ErinSueMreads I couldn't agree more about it needing to be shorter! 7mo
julesG @vivastory Six of Crows, and the other three books of the Grisha-verse after this feel a lot more mature than the original Grisha trilogy starting w/Shadow and Bone. I should put 9th 🏠 on my summer reading list, because it's been on my TBR since release day. 🙈 7mo

Great start to what promises to be a thrilling series. Galaxy Stern (Alex) feels out of place at Yale, but her supernatural abilities have made her valuable to Ninth House Lethe, the shepherds/police force for Yale‘s other magical houses. Grisly murder + college kids with much to hide = fascinating! https://cannonballread.com/2021/06/ninth-house-elcicco/

Getting in my last few reviews of May so I can move ahead to June (Holy shit! When did June happen? 😱)

I finally made it back to Bardugo's adult fantasy and I have to say....I think I like it more than S&B. It's dark and raw and emotional with a hint of WTF that I love. I'm so ready for the sequel now Ms Bardugo. Stop playing with the actors and get this out in the world!

UM WOW! Obsessed! I haven‘t read a piece of fiction this good in ages. I originally was astounded by what I thought was a TON of creativity... but which turned out to be a fair amount of fact, instead!! She just took these facts and crafted them into incredibly entertaining and enchanting fiction. Leigh Bardugo still deserves an A+ for this — makes me wish I went to Yale 😂🐍

Also, what??? She was in Wolf‘s Head and not Aurelian?? 😱

1/5 Stars. TW: rape

I posted before about the beginning being difficult to follow with so many changing time lines and points of view. I chose to power through because the premise was interesting.

Unfortunately I made it about a 1/4 of the way through the book only to find a description of a ghost raping a 12 year old. That's an immediate DNF for me. There were other options to show that ghosts can hurt people. Rape is not a good plot device.

How I feel about Ninth House thus far:

I can see why people give up due to the jumping timeliness and POV right off the bat. That's a lot to track in the first few pages of a book. That said, I find the premise sufficiently intriguing to attempt to push past that.

Will keep you updated.

I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Supposedly it is quite different from her YA fantasy series. Definitely check out this book if you are into magic and a adultish slightly Harry Potter-esque book. Slight.
