❤💚❤💚 I love the vintage art and stories. It was strange that they chose to follow A Christmas Carol with a story closely based on it, but that's just a formatting issue. I will definitely read this again in the future.

These six stories were all set at Christmas or winter, but none stood out. The stories weren't very interesting and seemed a bit...disjointed? It took me just over an hour to read, so I'm not mad at the time spent, but I can't suggest these unless you're a smurfing fan of the Smurfs.

+241 for 6 themed stories and 1 hour for 9 RATs

Finale (Caraval, #3) | Stephanie Garber

Mehso-so

I'm glad to be finished with the series. This very well could be an unpopular opinion, but overall the series dragged and the descriptive language meant to evoke whimsy & wonder grated my nerves. Finale has less of the weird similes, but a few still made it in. This is another book where the Dragna sisters are in a game, or aren't they? Don't believe anything, except this one time, numerous times. It felt like there were too many characters ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick this time around, which made it lose a bit of the charm of the first book. This book had both sister's POV chapters, which definitely helped. It's not awful, but I could probably gripe a lot more than compliment. A mild spoiler below. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick How many times can these girls be that stupid and how many times can the reader expect to enjoy them getting hurt and duped?! Maybe I'm more sensitive to this being older, but it just felt like they needed legit wins, not all with the help of guys. 2y

Traci1 How terrible is it that I don't remember if I've read the first one of these? I I did, but I am not sure. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Traci1 It wasn't all that memorable. I was active with the BookCon app for a few years and many of them were huge YA fans. They raved about these and I'm totally underwhelmed by each one. (Probably why I own them all). I'm glad I found Litsy. 2y
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! This series has been on my TBR forever but I never seem to get around to it. Maybe I never will 😂 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @TheAromaofBooks This very well could be a case of me being a grump. If you're interested, I can send them to you. 2y
TheAromaofBooks haha I never turn down books from my list, so you are welcome to send them my way - although I still don't know when I read them!! 😂 2y
TheSpineView I read the first book in the series. It was Ok but I never felt the urge to the the next one. 2y
Andrew65 Brilliant progress 👏👏👏 Shame this one wasn‘t better. 2y
