I quite enjoyed it, but not as much as the first book in the #outlander series. While there were moments of Claire & Jamie goodness, there wasn‘t nearly as much. Overall a great edition to the series 4 ⭐️ #letterd #d #litsyatoz2019 #litsy2019 #2019 #bookstagram #outlanderseries #bookreview

baes I felt the same way. The Outlander series has been a rollercoaster ride for me when it comes to how much I love them. Some books I love more than others, but I‘m so glad I stuck with it. 6mo
melissajayne @baes I‘ve heard that from other people as well. 6mo

The plot for this story had potential; a girl is convicted of killing her mom and released from prison 10 years later when evidence was compromised. Girl, now a woman, goes in search of the real killer. I didn‘t like the MC; she is a privileged, selfish, rich snot. The “Paris Hilton” resemblance was annoying. This book really could have been so much better. #MountTBR #LitsyAtoZ #LetterD #ReadingUSA2019 #SouthDakota

squirrelbrain That‘s a shame as I needed one for South Dakota.... 6mo
Librarybelle I wouldn‘t be a fan of a character resembling Paris Hilton either... 6mo

I liked reading this. The story wasn‘t QUITE original (got a Tangled throwback) and it was oddly heavy on the Christianity. In the first half it made sense for the time period, but at the end I felt like I was back in youth group with my pastor trying to tie everything back to God and the Bible.
Still an enjoyable read!

I‘m excited to read one of the books I received in the #happilyeverafterswap from @biblioprincess for the #letterD of the #LitsyAtoZ challenge. Decided to break my sci-fi streak and move onto the fairytales to get me into a magical mood for upcoming mermaid season 🧜🏼‍♀️

I didn't love this as much as the first one, but I still loved it. It wasn't actually as dark as I was expecting considering the world it's based in. Great addition to the series. Now I just have to get my library to get a copy of the third one, so I can read it.

monalyisha Oh boo! 👻 This is my fave so far! Glad you still enjoyed it, though. 10mo
Naj This is my favorite in the series, too. Interested to hear your thoughts about the third one, it was the weakest one for me. 10mo

The Demonologist has an intriguing premise – David Ullman, a professor of demonic literature specializing in Milton‘s Paradise Lost, is sent on a whirlwind adventure to save his own daughter from demons. However, the novel is riddled with highly improbable and unbelievable plot points, as well as emotionally flat characters and a rushed ending, leaving me unimpressed. This is my third Andrew Pyper novel, and it may be my last. #LitsyAtoZ #LetterD

Despite the title, there's nothing supernatural in this story. What starts as a simple burglary involving stolen diamonds blooms into a far reaching murderous conspiracy involving a supposed curse, drugs, revenge, double crosses and a cult. The plot gets a bit twisted at times, but it all made sense in the end. 4 💥💥💥💥
1/2 out of 5.

It took me a bit to get through this. There is a lot of heavy subject matter- cancer, infertility, science of genetics. But Orenstein‘s writing is interesting, and the last part was more about raising a daughter in the current society, and I flew through.

If you enjoy nonfiction essays this might be your jam.
