I had a difficult time finding fantasy books that were not 500 pages 🤣 #LMPBC Have any of you read any of these? Any one of then stand out more than others? Excited for a new round with you all! @johanna414 @EclecticBookLover @Readergrrl

kellyann28 Oh I'm also throwing in this to the mix: 1mo
EclecticBookLover I have not heard of any of those, but I understand trying to find something that's a reasonable amount of pages 🤣🤣 I definitely have some research to do lol 1mo
kellyann28 @EclecticBookLover in my search I'd think "This would be fun!" Page count 520 ? 1mo
See All 9 Comments
EclecticBookLover Exactly! 🤣 So I looked everything over last night and the only one that didn't grab me was Savage Lands, but if everyone is for it I'm fine 🙂 1mo
Johanna414 I haven't read any of these! The top 2 are already on my TBR, so they'd be my top picks but I'd happily read any of them 1mo
kellyann28 I'm thinking Keeper of Enchanted Rooms if @Readergrrl is okay with it! @Johanna414 @EclecticBookLover 1mo
Johanna414 @kellyann28 awesome!! 1mo
Readergrrl I am very happy with that choice! 1mo
EclecticBookLover Sounds good to me! 1mo

Holy cow! Did I enjoy this book? YES! Alessandra was the perfect mix of independent, conniving, and vulnerable. The Shadow King is broody, withdrawn, and equally as vulnerable. I will definitely need to get Daughter Of The Pirate King and Daughter Of The Siren Queen by the same author.

thereadingpal This is a standalone right? I don't think I should start another series... 6mo
TheBookWitchON @thereadingpal Yes! There is a second stand alone with a 2024 release date about Alessandra's sister. 6mo
thereadingpal @TheBookWitchON Oh, nice! I'll make sure it to add it to my neverending list lol 6mo
TheBookWitchON @thereadingpal I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 6mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book is delicious (which I do not believe I have ever used that word to describe a book before, but once I thought of it, I couldn‘t think of anything else because it‘s so true).
The fashion, the drama, the tension, it all combines to create a really fun, fast escape into Levenseller‘s world. It was a treat to read.

GondorGirl I do believe she's got a sequel to this coming out later this year. 10mo

“They‘ve never found the body of the first and only boy to break my heart. And they never will.”
That‘s literally the first sentence of the book.
Strong female lead who was better than all the men at absolutely everything.
Easy read. Good book for people who are just getting into fantasy books.

This book was a cartoon version of a Slytherin romance — the discount version of The Cruel Prince, if we‘re being honest. The characters were just awful, & spent 90% of their time talking about colonizing other kingdoms & squashing the poor. BLECH. Making Slytherin characters unrepentant colonizers is SUCH an unimaginative choice. Thankfully, there are other books out there that do such characters much more justice. ★★☆☆☆.

Really wavering between a so-so and pick for this one. I think the author accomplished what she set out to do and created a romance between two pretty selfish characters. The tension was pretty good until about half way through when the characters seemed to shift pretty dramatically into lovey, swooning “safe” people. I will have to see when the next one comes out if I feel like giving it a try.

This was fun--different in that you have a conniving anti-hero to root for. Overall, I really was engrossed in the book, but I found some of the world building to be problematic. The guns didn't mesh with the swords.

I read quite a few negative reviews about this book, saying it wasn‘t interesting or fast paced enough. To that I say, but the slow burn was worth it! Ughh I love a good slow burn romance so much and this one didn‘t disappoint. The story was interesting enough that I truly didn‘t want to put it down even when I had to feed my 2 month old!

The first line pulled me in, but the rest captivated me. I cannot believe how much I loved this book. Literally the best book I've read this year. More people need to be talking about this. I didn't want it to end.

KimmyM I agree! I loved this one and I feel like more people need to read it. 2y

A predictable, but fun read. I do not think this is Levenseller's best novel, but it was an enjoyable story that I didn't have to think about. With teaching and grad. school now in full swing, it was nice to just enjoy.

I devoured this book in a day. How I loved the cunning, strong, determined villian as the lead. The MC's voice was unlike any I have read in YA. I got the love story for Slytherin's as the praise on the back stated. Also some Caraval style and an evil Cinderella vibe. So entertaining and fun!

j.rye Sounds so good! This one might jump to the top of my TBR pile 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“The Shadows Between Us” is best described as a wicked and Slytherin-style fantasy romance. In my opinion, Alessandra starts off as a highly unlikeable character, but gradually changes her arc and improves in tolerability. Despite having dark characters, the story contains a sweet and slow-burn romance. Overall, this was a quick and fast-paced read that has you hooked from the initial pages and ends with a surprising plot twist.

There is a blogging meme called Top Ten Tuesday this week which asked for the best opening lines of books. This book was mentioned several times. On the basis of the opening line I now want to read it.

The line is

They‘ve never found the body of the first and only boy who broke my heart.

This book was entertaining enough for me to keep reading but had so many problems throughout. I don‘t think I ever ended up liking the main character and everything in the books was just so easy. Problems arose with easy fixes and ~mysteries~ were actually super predictable. The story itself had a lot of potential it just needed more work to make it into something great.

Oh, I really, really liked Alessandra at first. She was so ruthless and cool. And then suddenly I'm in the middle of a modern, bloodier version of a Jane Austen novel. Because that's basically what this book is about.

If that's your cup of tea - go ahead! But I had to suffer quite a lot...

Still, there were some good scenes and an ok ending. But the start was so good...!

Buechersuechtling I don‘t know, if in my bookish world things like “Jane Austen” and “bloody” would go together well. That said, I feel your suffering. 3y
Jari-chan @Buechersuechtling 😁😁 Before reading this book, I wouldn't have matched those two words neither. But it somehow mixed up here 🤷‍♀️ 3y
Buechersuechtling @Jari-chan But, if I understand you right, not in a good way. I feel kind of sorry for that because I know the feeling of extremely looking forward to a book and then being rather disappointed because it doesn‘t work out as expected because it simply doesn‘t feel right or doesn‘t match with one‘s reading comfort zone. 3y

Jari-chan @Buechersuechtling Exactly. I don't like books where it's all about love talks and weddings and who's with whom. But that's what this book turned out to be. If one likes that - great! But I don't really care about how his fingers feel on her gloved hand 🙄 3y
Buechersuechtling @Jari-chan Uuuhm. Yes. Of course. 🙄 Me neither. So, thank you for reading this book. Because you did I now know that I don‘t need to. 😉 3y

It was ok. Romance was so-so. Allesandra was an interesting MC and definitely slytherin. But I just didn‘t really think this was amazing. If not for the shadow powers the king has, this wouldn‘t be fantasy at all.

This was so, so good, I loved Alessandra and how progressive she was, the writing was witty and hilarious and I actually enjoyed the romance. However if I had one gripe it's that the ending felt rushed, and I was left feeling like... That's it? This is a standalone but would be better made into a series.
