I can‘t believe this was Jemisin‘s debut! I can see the early threads of her Broken Earth series in this one — the writing style and the way she weaves different characters and pieces together in a way that gives you a hint of what‘s coming while still leaving space for surprises. Loved this world and the gods and Yeine. I‘m excited to see where she takes this in book 2!

5⭐️ finished just in time to add it to my #AuldLangSpine list @monalyisha

I enjoyed this YA #Slasher #Horror well enough. I can see why people are loving this, but personally, I didn‘t connect with any of the characters. Maybe I‘m too old to connect with the teens? Maybe I don‘t hate teens enough to connect with the baddies? IDK, but this was a so-so read for me. There was only one moment that had me cheering. Though bloody, the chill factor is low. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Maybe slashers just aren‘t the horror sub genre for me? #NSR22

I will be doing my final #NoShameReadathon22 drawing the first week of December, so tag your genre reads! I personally have 2 yet to read, Western and Inspirational, which I think I‘m going to combine with a KU book, as neither am I super excited about. #NoShameReadathon23 info coming soon! #NSR22

LiseWorks I only have the inspiration one to find and read, I'm almost done, and I enjoyed this very much 2w

#NSR22 #NoShameReadathon22
Set in a darkly magical world, full of monsterous terrors. People send their children to the hungry halls of the Scholomance only a fraction of them will return from. But some survivors are better than none. Naomi Novik kept me guessing at where this was all going from book to book and delivered a fantastic conclusion to this #Fantasy trilogy! I loved this engrossing juxtaposition of #Grimdark horror and grudging hope.

This is the first high fantasy in a long time that I‘ve been able to read all the way through. The plot, characters, and pacing all weave together in a way that had me racing through the chapters to figure out where it was all leading. Definitely a 5 ⭐️ read! I can‘t wait to read the next book in the series!

Last third of the year! How are you all doing on the #NoShameReadathon22? #Scarathlon2022 is happening soon so a great time to get your horror/thriller/mystery reads in. I‘ll have one more drawing for a final prize in December! One drawing for each time you post. I have plans for a new Readathon for 2023 that I will post in December! If you want to share any genres/tropes you‘d love to see next year let me know! #nsr22

LiseWorks I think I'm finally caught up in this but looking back I should have kept the horror section for October lol 2mo

#NSR22 #DarkRomance @Nessavamusic
Shockingly good. One of my favorite reads of the year even! This Serial Killer x FBI profiler romance is more than I ever expected! Especially since it‘s only novella length, ST Abby (fantastic pun btw) did an expert job layering information and character building into the details as this story moved along. While Dark romance isn‘t really my thing, I‘ll definitely have to read the rest of this particular series!

Nessavamusic Yay! I‘m glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. 2mo

Literally read this in a 24hr period. I loved all of it and will probably read it again before the end of the year. Since this is the 13th book in the series it‘s difficult to talk about in a non-spoiler way. But if you‘re looking for a gateway book into autumnal feels this year, this would be a great way to kick off the pumpkin spice season!

#NSR22 #SciFi #SpaceOpera
A “Why Choose” “Jane Austen in Space”, this is the first part of a longer story (1 of 3 - I think.) So we end on an HFN rather than an HEA. The female MC feels a bit more removed and distant than I prefer and the space portion of this space opera is a bit light, but I feel like both of those things might change as the books progress? Either way, I feel lukewarm about this one and might or might not read further. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Nessavamusic I had similar feelings about this one 3mo
