Gods of Jade and Shadow | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I‘ve never read a book that had to do with the Mayan mythology and Mayan gods, so that was interesting to me. But all in all, It just didn‘t do it for me. It was lacking a lot of depth. I was worried it was gonna be a trilogy but glad it didn‘t, it just ended. I give it a 3 1/2 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ #BOTM

I'm thinking of signing up for the Book of the Month club. Anyone try #botm? Do you recommend it?

Do the books end up piling up? A book subscription is also a little at odds with my trying to clean out my house but I also end up returning a lot of books to the library that I didn't get a chance to read in the allotted time.

allthingskayla I recommend it and it has really helped me discover new genres and authors I wouldn‘t even know about. I do have a back log of books because there are a few months I have had book slumps. 1d
bernadette @allthingskayla thank you. I was thinking it would be a nice way to read new authors and books I might not typically read. Do you find that you skip a lot of months? 3h

Snippet reviews from the bed!

Tagged: loved this #BOTM selection, esp after reading the “about the book.” I think it captured well the triumphs & tragedies of ppl not expecting war. 5⭐️
NtSH: loved! While I hated the characters, this book was a surprisingly charming look at broken hearts meets noblesse oblige. 4.5⭐️
HoW: Ugh! 3 partial books in search of a plot. 2.5⭐️
Henry: been by my side all/every day since I found out about the surgery!! 5⭐️

Cinfhen Yay for Henry🐶🐾❤️and I agree HoW was really bad. A few members of my bookclub “liked” it but I thought it was awful 👎🏼 2d
Cinfhen Thinking of you 💋💋💋 2d
Megabooks @Cinfhen Thank you, dear!! Henry has been the kindest creature!! ❤️🐩 I‘m up late all cramped up in pain waiting till I can take meds. Fortunately, my doctor and his staff have been amazing. My parents have been supportive as well, as they have been for the past 22 years of this sh!t! I am so blessed to have great friends on Litsy and irl as well. Other than my semi-defective health, I wouldn‘t change a thing! 🥰😘 2d

ValerieAndBooks I will be thinking about you on your surgery day...and that you‘re able to take it easy until then. So wonderful that you have Henry at your side 💖! 3h
Megabooks @ValerieAndBooks Thank you Valerie! Henry story. He‘s an old man - almost 17 - and got overexcited about a cat in yard this morning and had an accident in the house. Very unlike him. He put himself in timeout for most of the morning. 😢 I adopted him as an adult, and I think his first owner put him in the bathroom when he was bad as a puppy because that‘s where he goes now. My old man 💜🐩💜 2h

Weird and heartwarming and delightful. A little silly at times but I really enjoyed it.

I was so intrigued by the intensity of the story. A rollercoaster of emotions every time I turned the page.
I couldn‘t imagine dealing with as much death as Annaleigh and her family endured; on top of being toyed with by a trickster.
I recommend this book to anyone wanting to read a great fictional story! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was so excited to read this book. Multiple families, drama, suburban school setting, I‘m in. But you don‘t really end up liking any of the characters. They‘re all evil and weird in their own ways. But it held my interest enough for me to finish it hence the so-so rating. Thanks #botm for another mediocre pick.

kamoorephoto I finally frigging got my #BOTM book today...and one of the inside cover pages is ripped. Should I contact them? Anyone? @swishandflick @felinesandfiction what do you think? 3d
hes7 @kamoorephoto I would say something, if it‘s going to be something that bothers you. It never hurts to ask, right? I think I‘ve seen other Littens get good responses when they had a complaint about the physical quality of a book. 3d
kamoorephoto @hes7 It just looks crappy 😔 3d
