So. Much. Action. I knew this was going to be fast paced based on the first book, but to tear through a 600 page book in 2 days is ridiculous. And yet I don‘t regret it. The ending is infuriating, but it had to go that way for there to be 3 more books in the making. My favorite character is Andarna. I love her and everything she is, was, and will be. Book #12 in 2024

BeeCurious I'm enjoying your reviews with illustrations. Good job! 👍 2w

When Franny Stands Up | Eden Robins

Here are my #ReadYourKindle books for February:

12 Selling Hope
14 Mrs. Narwhal‘s Diary
17 The Secret Keeper
18 When Franny Stands Up

I previously said I was going to read #12 first, but I‘ve decided to switch to #18 (the tagged book) instead, in an effort to kill two birds with one stone. 😄 #NetgalleyBacklog

CBee Remember, you don‘t have to read all 4! Low key, no pressure here 😊😊 3w
Sapphire Ok! Dream of Scipio followed by either Trust by Herman Diaz or Train Dreams for me! I don‘t think I will get to goon squad. Thanks @CBee 3w
CBee @Sapphire sounds great 😊 3w
Leniverse Yay, numbers! Pageboy, Chain-Gang All-Stars, Camp Zero, House of Doors. I would LOVE to get through all of those, but we'll see. I have other book commitments too 😅 I think I'll start with Chain-Gang because I'm already reading a non-fiction. 3w
vivastory @Leniverse Chain-Gang is so good 3w
Leniverse @vivastory It's just ridiculous that I haven't already read it! 3w
TheAromaofBooks Ooooo I forgot this was happening today!!! For now, I'm going with one number because I have way too many challenge/buddy reads happening 😂 Looks like I've owned this one since September 2016. I think it's time haha It's - 3w
vivastory @Leniverse No shame at all. I'm currently reading Yellowface. 3w
CBee @Leniverse I haven‘t read Chain Gang yet either, hoping to get to it soon! 3w
CBee @TheAromaofBooks sounds good to me 😊 3w
CBee @vivastory what do you think of it so far? (edited) 3w
Allylu #12 I'd Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel; #14 Welcome to Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong; #17 Among the Nameless Stars by Diana Peterfreund; and #18 Hotel Sacher by Rodica Doehnery. I also plan to read Be My Valencrime by Amy M. Reade for #SeasonalCozies !! 3w
vivastory @CBee I started it last night around 10 & before I knew it I had read 120 pages. There are def some moments where I cringe when June's prejudices peek through, but she has a strong narrative voice for someone who seems to often lack her own identity. Also, some of the observations on the arbitrary nature of which books becomes bestsellers, while not new, is great to see (in a bestseller lol) 3w
monkeygirlsmama 12.) The Help - K Stockett, 14.) Double Happiness - T Brasunas, 17.) Stop Littering. Place in a Bin. - P Good, and 18.) Nether - J Beymer... I think I'll start with The Help and go from there. Will make sure I get at least two of them read, but am gonna shoot for all four if I can. 🙂 3w
CBee @Allylu great plan 👏🏻👏🏻 3w
CBee @vivastory oh yes, quite a few cringy moments but fascinating to see a bit behind the scenes of publishing. It‘s sort of like a car wreck you can‘t look away from 😳😂 3w
CBee @monkeygirlsmama the Help is great! Make sure to watch the movie too! 3w
jackilynn #12 Curious Tide-Pascale Lacelle. #14 Empire of Sand-Tasha Suri. #17 The Haunting of Maddy Clare- Simone St. James. #18 Into the Drowning Deep- Mira Grant. Hmmm, I can totally get behind these picks lol 3w
rubyslippersreads I‘m going to start with #12, because it‘s been on my TBR for ages: 3w
AnnR Even though all my numbered picks were just general themes, I'm going with the #12 Kindle. There is a short children's classic titled The Windy Hill that I've been trying to read for a few months now. I'd like to cross that one off my list. 3w
RebelReader I‘m going with #18. 3w

I'm actually better off than I thought. These are all the unread books on my Kindle!
I think I'm going to like this challenge because my physical TBR is massive and intimidating. This will help me focus in.

Also, how many iterations of the word "wife" can we have? I feel like I have a stack of just "wife" titled books. ?

First book in the trilogy of Ian Hamilton Mysteries. Set in 1881. I really enjoyed this historical mystery, a murder occurred and the body is found with an object, the murderer signature? It seems it is because other bodies are found with similar clue. This peculiar inspector, Ian Hamilton, will investigate these cases. Peculiar because his conversations/expressions are full of Shakespearean quotes. Love those parts.⬇️

Gissy (Cont.)...There are some funny parts, some murders are dark and there is a touch of family drama. I definitely will continue with this trilogy. 3.8⭐️
I received this book from @TK421 I haven‘t see a a Litsy post from him or his wife @Cobwebmoth in a long time. The swap was #StaycationInTime swap August 14, 2019,

I‘m trying to follow my reading goals and one of them is read books received from swaps and subscriptions. This is one of them. It‘s a YA fantasy but I like those stories, specially about fae.
Keltania will be the bodyguard of the heir to the throne of Winter Court which she didn‘t expect it was the heir she had to protect. During those first encounters between these two characters, things will happen and they are not what they seem⬇️

Gissy (Cont.) It seems that everyone in this story has a secret which means we will see many betrayals, also we will magic and shape shifters. It has a good end, leaves you with the sensation to continue the story. However, the world as seen in many YAs books, is not complicated. I will say that has similar plot/topic with other YA fae stories. But I‘m a sucker of beautiful editions and this one is so pretty, even the end pages. ⬇️ 3w
Gissy Second book is coming out this year. I hope is not another unnecessary trilogy 🤞 3w
DieAReader 🥳Great 3w
