That ending....
I really love where this series is going.
The double POV was a delightful change. Adrian's voice is definitely what was missing in the previous books.

Can't wait to start the next book.

This is the second book by Virginia Woolf that I've tried. And I'm sorry to say I just don't like her writing energy. At points it felt frantic and chaotic and I had to put all my mind-power to work to stay with the story.
I just feel that I've worked way too hard for this little book.

Hamnet | Maggie O'Farrell

I really enjoyed this fictional account of the life of Shakespeare and the death of his son Hamnet. This book is told in a few timelines. The most interesting is of Shakespeare's wife, Agnes, who is presented as a healer or witch.
Warning: this story is quite tragic and the last 4 hrs or so may cause crying, grief and wanting to strangle a number of men in the book 😿

Persuasion | Jane Austen

I think this is the most disappointing Austen read I've had to date. I couldn't connect to Anne. Her longing for Frederick became a point of irration rather than something enduring. And in the end I was hoping for a vicious plot twist where they don't end up together 😱

I reckon this is an #UnpopularOpinion

Ruthiella That‘s how I felt the first time I read it too. But when I reread it a few years later, I was able to better accept both Anne and Frederick‘s behavior. I still need to reread Mansfield Park because I disliked it too in the first read. 11mo
Enchanted_Bibliophile @Ruthiella I'll give it a year or 2 and try again. Glad to know I'm not alone in my initial dislike. ☺️ 11mo

Didn't enjoy this one as much as the first one.
At first it dragged and then the ending felt rushed and a bit incomplete. I'd like it if I could have joined Nicolas in his final voyage. Not just get a one paragraph summary of it. In fact I feel it could have been a whole book on its own.

Spinning Silver | Naomi Novik

This was a February #roll100 title I finished in March and had been languishing on my TBR shelf for a few years now.

I enjoyed Uprooted: I freakin‘ LOVED Spinning Silver! I loved the strong female characters here who refused to allow their circumstances to dictate who they can be. Novik masterfully creates such unique voices that I instantly knew which POV I was reading and those threads are slowly spun together into something very special.

MeganAnn Also used this for #nsr23 : lesser known fairytale retelling @Nessavamusic 📚 and #pantone2023 #macchiato #grayedjade @Clwojick 1y
TheBookHippie I love this book. 1y

This is the first book in this series that I actually loved!
It reminded me of The Infernal Devices which I love, might have something to do with some of those characters making an appearance here.
But even without them; this book was awesome! Just the right blend of adventure, action and romance.

I might even consider reading the rest of Clare's work now.

Enchanted_Bibliophile @Meshell1313 Just saw your review of Last Hours. I love those covers, so I'll definitely be looking into them. 1y
Meshell1313 @Enchanted_Bibliophile it‘s perfect to read right after Infernal devices since it‘s a lot of the same characters just one generation later. You‘ll have Tessa and Will fresh in your mind! 1y
Andrew65 Brilliant 👏👏👏 1y

My first foray into the solarpunk genre was a success!I started this novella on audio earlier today and just couldn‘t stop listening. I see why this one gets so much love, and I‘m excited to read the second half of the duology. This has been on my radar for a while now, so I really appreciate @SueK putting it on my #AuldLangSpine list and encouraging me to give it a try. @monalyisha #Pantone2022 #Macchiato @Clwojick

Clwojick Way to go! 1y
monalyisha One that I wish I could read again for the first time! 1y
IndoorDame @monalyisha yes, it‘s so special when you read something truly surprising that really works perfect! 1y
SueK @IndoorDame So glad you enjoyed it! @monalyisha Absolutely wish I could read it for the first time again. But I think I liked the second one even more, so that‘s almost the same thing. 1y
