I enjoyed this more than I expected. I haven‘t been reading much YA lately and this reminded me of my love for good YA. I‘ve already borrowed the next in the series.

Conflicted characters, fixing the crimes of the past and an interesting magic system? Yes please! It was so easy to sit down and read 100+ pages at a time. I‘m really looking forward to the next book

Finally pushed myself to finish this book today! This book took me a little to get into but it had really good action and pacing and gave off kinda Avatar(tla) vibes. It's about this prophecy where two queens with lotsa powers are either going to doom or save the world.The whole thing switches stories and timelines constantly between past and present but was handled really well and I at least was invested in both. All in all a promising beginning!

heikemarie I had a really hard time getting into it but in the end I‘ve thought about it a bunch of times which is in itself a recommendation I suppose - the next one is coming out really soon! 5mo
Confused_child_of_the_universe @heikemarie it was one of those books I would enjoy once I picked it up but also kept randomly putting down and starting new things. I am excited for the next one though:) 5mo

Okay so I haven‘t posted in a year because I honestly forgot my password (shameful I know) but I‘m finally back on and perfect timing! I just finished Furyborn and it is absolutely amazing. I loved how seamlessly Claire weaves Eliana and Rielle‘s story together while keeping them separate. So that they relate and make sense together but also apart. I can‘t wait for book 2!!!

1. 0-1 times a week depending on when my books due and whether or not I can get a ride there

2. 4 right now: Archenemies, Furyborn, Dance of Thieves, and Caraval.

3. All print hardcover.

4. My 4 print books will be soon

5. 1 hold- The Subtle Art to Not Giving a F***k

6. Haha I also have Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on hold but I was so impatient I went out and bought it so not sure if that counts😂

Dread,” he murmured, his breath caressing her cheek, “is only a feeling, easily squashed. But wolves, my dear, have teeth. Really liking this book. I like that both characters are reluctant to be the hero. They are okay with who they are despite what others think. #winterread #riotgram #furyborn

Each chapter is action packed and ends with a cliffhanger. This book is good for short attention spans, but don't go thinking it is PG. The action almost never takes long enough of a breath for the character's personalities to fully form. The book is little too much a part of a series, as there are way too many unanswered questions. It does not stand alone. However, I am very much invested in the story. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I‘m loving my new phones focus ability. The slightly blurred look in the background is a cool effect.

Snuggling up with Furyborn for the evening. I had a very stressful week at work and didn‘t get any reading done so I‘m behind on this monster book for book club so I need to get a move on.

These are the 3 Claire Legrand books I purchased this morning. Furyborn is already signed so I just have to get the other two signed tonight. I can‘t believe she and Holly Black are together in one place! Super exciting! I‘m really happy with the fabulous books I got today. I have to say that I never thought Fantasy would become such a huge part of my reading! So many great books out there!

I mentioned that dialogue is not a strength. Didnt love inclusion of trends/elements that other books have done recently/often better. Elements of science in a fantasy (Queen of the Tearling), elemental magic/contests to prove oneself (Red Queen), misunderstood female chars. No fewer than 3 weird love interests for MC. I thought there were some interesting bits - unsure if I‘ll continue to follow. Ended in big cliff hanger -YA pet peeve for me.

I am reading this book on my way back home from Massachusetts but I‘m not loving it right now. Has anyone read it? The dialogue seems stilted.

heikemarie @Carolyn11215 I had heard the same - which is why I am confused! I‘ll update when I‘m a bit farther in. I can be pretty judgmental at the start of a book ☺️ 8mo

I really liked the changing perspectives and both Eliana and Reille as people. Simon is a very interesting character but I feel like he changed a little too quickly.

I liked the action elements and there was a lot of suspense. However, there were several graphic scenes that didn't seem to vibe with a YA feel, way too many villains to keep track of, and I ended up not really caring what happened to any of the characters. The true reason this book didn't work for me is that I just couldn't keep the mythology straight. I wasn't sure who the bad guys were or how the characters fit. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Netgalley

This book does the past and present bery well and allows for a smooth story and the chracters are so flesged out. Though I do perfer Rielle over Eliana. Rielles story is much better and more humorous. The part when Rielle and Audric make out and Lu‘s father catches them was hilarious. The reveal that simon was from rielles time was so obvious. I believe the angel that is in Lu‘s body is helping Eliana as well

Finally started Furyborn for a short round-trip drive this weekend. I was so excited for a feminist fantasy but even a few hours in I find myself barely enthralled and wondering if or when it will grab my attention...

LaraCroft I'm currently reading it, and I can tell you that I was really struggling with the first few chapters to the point that I got into a READING SLUMP!!!! But since I can't leave a book unfinished, even if it sucks, I pushed myself beyond the limits and....things got a TAD bit better, but I'm still not really enjoying it (I mean, my expectations for this books were really high but..sh*t happens). But yeah, just keep reading, things may change ^-^ 10mo
SincerelyWinona @LaraCroft I definitely know what you mean. I‘m at part 10/14 in the audiobook and I‘m no longer having to ~force~ myself to listen. I‘m still not really enjoying it either. I‘m glad I picked up the audiobook because I‘d have a really hard time finishing it if I had the written book, but I‘d hate not finishing too. 10mo

I‘ve been in a reading slump over the last few weeks. Between the start of school for 3 of 4 members of my family, the new schedule which is hard on this night owl and some challenges at work, I haven‘t had a really great book to escape into. This #audiobook hold came through and since I was lucky enough to get an #ARC at #ALAAC18 I‘m going to dig in. 🤞🏾

Really enjoyed this book! The back and forth between time and perspective was different in a good way. The fact that at various times I both liked and disliked both protagonists made it even better. Made the characters more real to me. Sun or Blood both Queens held my interest and I'm looking forward to book two.
