The second in this urban fantasy series picks up only a few months after the last one ended, and it was so easy to get lost in this world again. Bryce and Hunt and Ruhn are great, as are the many side characters. Still a little TOO reliant on the Danika trauma (at this point what was she not lying about??) but loved the additional world building. Also a crazy ending that had me yelling IRL. Can‘t wait to see what‘s next!

May #WrapUp

📚 Again 8 Books total for the month.
Seems to be my new monthly average, I can live with that.

I really liked House of Sky and Breath and Something is Killing the Children

I really do enjoy myself Sarah J Maas novel. I cannot believe the way she ended this story and there is WAAAAAAYYYYY to much time before the next book with so much left unanswered.

Enchanted_Bibliophile I finished this one in the first week of May and ever since I'm making up little stories in my head of what I would like to happen 🤩 1mo
KristiAhlers Right?!? I can‘t wait to see where this goes! 1mo

I didn't enjoy this as much as the first in the series. For an 800 page book I felt there were so many sub-plots that felt thrown together and it resulted in the story feeling disjointed. Will I read the next book in the series when it's published? Yes. But I'm not waiting with bated breath.

Hmmmm. I think… that I don‘t like SJM in adult as much as I do in YA? The plot of this was excellent. But I found myself skipping past stuff that was just a bit… too much. For me. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I did appreciate that they‘d edited out some of the excessive f bombs which, IMO, were every second sentence at the end of the first book 😆 tiring. that ending though. 😵💀 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was fantastic. Sarah Maas does not disappoint and the ending had me nearly crying of joy. I dont want to spoil the ending but if you're contemplating reading this or getting into the Crescent City Series...this is your sign. Do it! You did it again Sarah and I am one happy girl with how everything "came together" at the end!

I read 19 books this month! Thanks to audiobooks and just having a lot of alone time.

11 were audiobooks! Now that it‘s nicer out and I can walk and run outside, I‘m doing little else.

Some of my favorite reads were:
Tagged book
Murder at the Brightwell
It Begins in Betrayal
Danger on the Atlantic

Clearly I‘ve been in a historical mystery mood.

Ok… does it take a while? Yes. Did I take breaks? Yes. Was I lost at times? Yes… UNTIL THE LAST 4 HOURS IF YOURE DOING AUDIOBOOK! Holy crap guys! I can‘t handle it. I was completely floored by it all and had my crazy, shocked (of course screaming) tears by the end. DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. Read it, persevere, and fall absolutely in love with SJM again and again. Hold this book to your chest and scream like me.

I‘m still plugging away at HOUSE OF SKY AND BREATH, and Casey‘s still sad it‘s so damned big. My hands are SORE, y‘all.

At first, I liked it heaps more than the first book. (It‘s got way fewer infodumps and redundant bits! Whee!) I‘m halfway through now, though, and I‘m starting to slip out of the narrative. It‘s slowed down, thanks in part to more repetition. That, together with the hand pain, makes it tough for me to want to pick it up. 😔

xicanti @Laughterhp I really wish I could‘ve gotten the ebook, but my phone‘s my only device that can run the library apps anymore and it‘s not something I‘d buy at full price. Sadness. Hopefully I‘ll have new ereading options by the next book‘s release! 2mo

I started HOUSE OF SKY AND BREATH this morning, and Casey‘s bummed about how tough it is to hold. Casey‘s not the only one. I can only hope it‘s a relatively quick read so I won‘t have to endure the hand strain for too long.

Mrs_B @Laughterhp it definitely helped I had just finished a court of wings and ruin before I read this. I‘m still in shock though! Can‘t wait for the next one! My hold came through today for a court of silver flames so that‘s the rest of my weekend… 3mo

Took me a bit, but finally finished this chunkster.

This one had a lot more adventures and risk in it. I felt like the first one dragged, but this one didn‘t. Also, it took me a minute to understand the ending. It wasn‘t until I saw something on tiktok that I made the connection. (No spoilers)

Also, I heard on a podcast that depending on where you buy the book, you may have an extra scene or ending. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Can‘t wait for the next one!

So so many unexpected happenings in this book!! It all led up to some extremely shocking events and knowledge near the end of the book which makes the the anticipation of the third book all the more intense! A must read for Maas fans!

LitStephanie So better than the first one? 3mo
451Degrees @LitStephanie I think so! It takes a bit again to get into the story. Maybe a third of the book. I was wary of the first one too but this one is really solidifying how much I like where it‘s going! 3mo
LitStephanie @451Degrees ok I will try it. There were things I really didn't like about the first one. 3mo
451Degrees @LitStephanie I totally understand your reservations. For me it was totally worth getting to the end of this book but I agree about the first book completely 3mo

But he‘s on the mend today and seems to be feeling better! So we are getting some cone snugs, while I dive into this book.

Utterly fantastic.

Builds on the world and characters introduced in book 1 and impossibly raises the stakes and tensions even higher.

Funny and sexy at times but heartbreaking at others and always full of action.

The ending broke my heart, made my furious and delighted me all at once. Cannot wait for the next instalment.

Just finished this #chunkster on #audiobook. Wow, this was a ride. Book 2 of the Crescent City series. I liked book 1, but it was very heavy on world building so it was a bit of a slog. This was non-stop character development and action and I want book 3 now. 5⭐️

Honestly, I'm probably just going to be picking up HOSAB because it's widely talked about and I've already picked up on a few spoilers that are going ruin this whole thing for me so I need to know how this plays out. If I manage to finish I'll know I have at least 20 hrs in...I'm only on chapter 20 so I have a LONG way to go!

I really like this world Maas has created. And that ending! Whew! Hopefully we don't have to wait too long to find out what happens next.

KristiAhlers Yeah I‘m a total fan of carrying a book wherever I go. To include taking a bath with it. On top of that I‘ve got small hands. Like I get my winter gloves in the kids section 😂 so it was a challenge. I propped it up on a pillow! And proceeded to inhale it over three days! 4mo
