It's okay. Pacing is slow, with tedious teenage romantic angst, and the big surprise at the end was something I'd guessed pretty early. But not awful, and I'll read the next. Recommended by my nephew, who has a much higher tolerance than I for teenage romantic angst, bless him.

DuckOfDoom I felt the same way. Saw the twist coming since chapter 1 🙄 1mo
swynn @DuckOfDoom For me the big clues were Katherine's rapport with the coral snake, and the fact that two sisters were "talentless". I can't say that I knew as early as chapter 1, but it wasn't long before I wondered how long it would take the sisters to figure out there had been a Sorting Hat Error. 1mo

One of my favorite reads in 2019!
The three sisters must fight to the death to become queen. So many things go wrong in this book that you canNOT stop reading! Love it, the magic and matriarchy are different than other books that I've read. Truly enjoyable. 4/5⭐

This book was a very pleasurable read. I loved how it was told from so many perspectives. I love all the action, romance, and betrayals. I can‘t wait to see what will happen in the next book. After reading this book I‘m definitely Team Arsinoe. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I give Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake 4.5 stars. This was a great YA fantasy book. It had some dark parts but I thought they were very well done. My only complaint would be the predictability of the ending. At chapter 3 I was able to guess the large plot twist.

I saved this series to read this weekend knowing the last book comes out this Tuesday. I have heard so many great things about it so I had to check it out. Right now it is an okay series. I haven't been hooked yet but I am very interested to see what happens to the Queens. On to the next book!

OnlyYoo This has been on my TBR for awhile but I‘ve also heard such mixed reviews. I really hope I like it since the plot sounds so interesting! 3mo

WEEK 2

So I still havent found the motivation to exercise but I have been doing well with watching what I am eating. I Lost 2 lbs so far. I am also having a reading slump so I'm going to try rereading Three Dark Crowns to prepare for the 4th book coming out soon.

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 Nutrition is 90% of it. So great job! 4mo
Laughterhp Oh no. How come you haven‘t had any motivation? Maybe you should change up what you want to do for exercise! Great job on your nutrition! 4mo

Scochrane26 @Catlover23 I personally love yoga, especially restorative yoga, where you don‘t do a lot of movement but still relieves stress & helps your body. I found a teacher who emphasizes that more than flexibility. Maybe you could look around your area or try a video at home? 4mo
LapReader Yin yoga works for me too on my lazy days. 4mo
Sresendez12 Nutrition is always my hardest part, so awesome job there! I‘ve also done a re read of a favorite book when in a slump and it‘s helped get me out of the slump. Good luck! 4mo
Dragonfairykats I hear you on the ambition! I decided that even parking further away and walking around the store is physical activity that counts because I don't move. It's a small step, but helps me. But you go girl!! Look at you, watching your food and losing TWO POUNDS!!! How awesome is that?! 💥🎉🎺 4mo

It is hard to pick between so-so or a good pick for this one. Basically, I had to push myself to get through this and I‘m not sure if it is simply just because I am not used to teenager problems and young adult novels anymore or if it is just hard to push through in general. However, it is a really interesting concept of 3 triplet queens born that have to battle for the throne. I will also say the ending makes me want to read the sequel.

Scochrane26 Sounds interesting 6mo
Godpants I didn‘t love this book when I stared it, but the twist made me check out the next one, which I liked a lot more. I think the series is overall quite fun. 6mo

The concept of very stylized factions is growing a little old and flat for me, and because of that I have to say I‘m a little bored.

On the bright side I‘m able to invest a little in the charcters, whic is never a given in YA👌🏻

🤣🤣🤣 you guys! I finished crocheting the bear yesterday...I told my husband it looks more like a mouse-bear because the eyes are too close together. I think that, other than the eyes, it came out pretty good for my first try at amigurumi. My husband decided to keep it in his office, since I‘m not giving that one away. He has named him Gilbert. 🤦🏽‍♀️ 😂

I bounced back and forth between my print copy and an audiobook. It was ok, but I found the lack of conjunctions to be irritating and the characters sounded stilted on the audio. Interesting enough to finish, though I am unlikely to continue with the series.

Hello new series I‘m addicted to! Incredibly well written and immersive with a fascinating plot and strong female protagonists. Total win. I LOVE the characters! They are so very “alive” and 3-dimensional. I am not one to “fangirl”, but holy heck, these characters are bringing me the closest to “fangirling” and “shipping” I‘ve been since when I first read “Harry Potter”. I have VERY strong feelings for these characters 😂

LoverofLit I love these books and the three sisters! ❤👑 👑 👑 ❤ 8mo

I got to spend most of today at the Children‘s Literature Festival with a few of my students. We saw a handful of authors, but my two favorites of the day were Kendare Blake (I enjoyed Anna Dressed in Blood but haven‘t read this series yet) and Obert Skye (specifically requested by students and new to me).

JazzFeathers Wow! Book fairs are amazing. 9mo
Daisey @JazzFeathers It really was fun! This trip is organized through my school, but I‘m also trying a bit harder to look for author events on my own. 9mo

4/5🌟

I was pleasantly surprise by this book. The story was unique. I like all the characters and I even enjoyed hating some of them. I like how we have the chance to read each one of the Queens perspectives, it made the story more interesting. I don't think it had the strongest plot but I still really enjoyed reading it.
