Ok Littens I need a bit of advise because I'm not sure what I'm doing about this. One of the books I ordered for a gift came in today and the tip in is upside down 🤔 It happens but my question is: Would it bother you if you got a book like this? I figure it would cost me more to send it back than it's worth so do I keep it and order a new one or send it along anyway and hope the person receiving doesn't mind? Anyone deal with this before?

wanderinglynn Oh that is weird. I have never seen a misprint like that—especially a signed one. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Maybe contact the store you got it from & ask about it? 2d
Laughterhp That‘s so weird! Maybe it‘ll be worth more money one day.. I‘ve never seen that before but I wouldn‘t be mad about it. 2d

5feet.of.fury It‘s definitely weird. But also probably rare. It‘s a toss up. 2d
Nessavamusic Very strange, I‘ve never seen that but with how publishing is going right now…Great book btw! 2d
BrittanyReads I think it's unique! Pass it on! I got a book of the month book printed upside down. It irked me at first but now it's a favorite. 2d
Kimberlone I wouldn‘t mind at all. It‘s the thought that counts! Plus it‘s signed! 2d
BookwormM I would love it for its weirdness 1d

This took me quite a while to read. I took a break as I wasn't really enjoying it, only wanting to get through it. That actually helped me as I felt a bit more into it. But on the whole this series isn't for me and more than likely won't read the next one.

Spending Halloween and the last day of #Scarathlon2021 and all the other October ‘thons #audioknitting to the new Jay Kristoff book. I‘ve been switching between book & audio as it‘s over 26hrs & I read much quicker. Trying to decide which colour is next in Jaxon‘s blanket, I‘m not happy with the green next to the mustard(Hubbys choice🙄)and I‘m leaning towards the navy blue or silver🤔 1pt #TeamSlaughter

I wish I had the option to rate this book higher. This blew my mind, I'm a massive fan of Kristoff but this has to be his best work to date.
I'm not a big fan of vampire fiction but this is just on a different level, written in a different way with amazing characters, a fantastic plot in a vivid world. I can't wait for the next book.

This was fantastic. I do not want to spoil anything but I would best describe it as Castlevania meets Witcher.
Extremely entertaining grim dark fantasy. I would have finished sooner if I didn‘t love sleeping. 5⭐️ 2 #bookspinbingos and my #bookspin pick done!

October 24 and I‘m finally in to my October reviews.

This was my first audiobook of the month, and it was awesome. Definitely leans more fantasy (EPIC fantasy) than horror, but obviously, with vampires, and they are the scary/murdery variety, so there is gore. It‘s very dark, but also smart and witty—really put me in mind of Witcher at times. I was completely obsessed and devoured it quickly, and I cannot wait for the next one.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

sprainedbrain Also, I am so happy to report that Jay Kristoff is one of those super talented guys who write fantasy books that aren‘t masochistic or misogynistic, so I wasn‘t the least bit annoyed with how quickly I fell in lust with Gabriel. 😂 And the audiobook narration is excellent. Also, my #NewIn2021 book for #Booked2021. (edited) 1mo

Nasty, nightmare fuel Vamps with evocative, poignant, vivid writing. This book will take you to dark places & have you questioning if HEAs can truly exist let alone in a world devoid of sunlight populated by blood sucking, atrocious creatures. The narrator, Damian Lynch, turned this LARGE tome into an instant favorite. I HIGHLY reccomend this one, especially as an audiobook & even more so if you liked The Name of the Wind. I LOVED it

I‘ve been trudging through this book not really invested in the story. I don‘t understand why the author choose to have Gabriel tell his life story to the captors. All I keep thinking is, “How does he recall so many conversations?”

There have been a couple of big scenes before this one, but the upcoming battle has been the only one that has made me want to read about what happens.

emmaturi I am reading it just now, but will take a break. It's just not really gripping me, but nevertheless will eventually finish it 1mo

Empire of the Vampire is easily the best book I‘ve read in 2021. As usual Jay Kristoff knows what I need more than I do. The world is dark and gritty. The vampires are actually scary. And the main character is the most developed character I think I‘ve ever come across. I love his gruff personality, but his motivation is clear and consistent. I‘m obsessed.

I don't even know what to say about this book. It was amazing, I completely get the hype now, I was emmersed in the bloody worldbuilding, and anxiety ridden in the battles. I can't remember the last time I was so lost in a story that I completely lost track of time. The pacing was perfect, and writing this story Interview with a Vampire style was genius. This will be my favorite read of 2021 and one of my favorites of all time. #mustread

I am not a fan of vamps & was apprehensive about picking up EOTV. That still didn't stop the FOMO and I jumped on the bandwagon with everyone else and I am so glad I did!

I found the begging to be a little slow and the writting style a little hard to settle in to. I even put it down for a week or two while I finished a different book, but once I hit a certain point in the story there was no stopping amd it has left me aching for the next book!

Fabulous! I ripped through this book in just three days despite it being 739 pages. I was drawn in very quickly to the story. Lots of action, great plot and a main character that was perfect for the story. Just one little thing... I wish the story had been told chronologically. Other that that it was perfection. 4.5⭐ #Scarathon2021 @Clwojick #TeamSlaughter #Necronomathon @Patchshank #Wickedathon @StayCurious #LittenListen @aperfectmjk

This is a fantasy book with vampires rather than a horror book with vampires. But it‘s brilliant, loved every page and even though it‘s huge the reading went really quickly.
I know this is a really popular author but it was my first read of him, so I may have a bit of catching up.
