This book....I don't know how I feel about it yet. Part of me liked it and part of me hated it. It took me longer than expected to read. It didn't kept me interested enough. It felt more like a chore to read it than anything. It had its good parts, and I enjoyed the character growth but i don't know what is it about it, it was simply meh for me

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won't approve for her childhood friend--the palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn't as weak as Levana believes her to be and she's been undermining her stepmother's wishes for years. Together with the cyborg, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that's been raging for far too long.

I'd have liked this more if it wasn't a retelling. At first I liked matching up names & events to P&P but, as usual for me with YA books, I got annoyed at the love lives of HS kids. If this had simply been about Zuri, her sisters, her love for her neighborhood, & her desire to go to college to come back & serve that neighborhood I'd have loved it. And I might not have found Zuri so irritating. As is, my #unpopularopinion is that it's overrated.

bookandbedandtea The narration by Elizabeth Acevedo was superb and probably made me like this more than I would have if I'd read it in print. 19h

I'm not usually into these books as I find the way woman were treated as sad. I would never have survived in this world. These books are so predictable as you know the couple would eventually find their true love. #NSR221 @Nessavamusic This is a Historical Romance

I was almost ready to call it quits after book 2, but the ending encouraged me - now I'm calling it quits pg.103 - I think I need a break from teen angst and the MC not knowing exactly what is going on etc.
My #BookSpinBingo is crazy this month! I spent too much time on books I wasn't really interested in. The 3 current reads (in red) are good.

I did reach my #MarvellousMay goals (yay) thx for hosting @Andrew65

Make a great day everyone - 🙂

Hi everyone!

So I just wanted to have a quick little discussion about this book. I‘m enjoying it so far but my only question is why is this book in the YA category? I'm an adult and I'm not a prude or anything but in my opinion, it's a little too explicit to be categorized as YA. (Then again I grew up reading Twilight & Harry Potter etc.) Any opinions would be great! Would love to discuss it. 🌹

kplovesbooks I literally have no idea why it's labeled as YA. I agree with you. And while the series itself gets way more interesting as it goes, the sex gets more graphic. 🤷 2d
Anya09 @kplovesbooks I‘ve been googling the question because I‘m kind short confused. Like I finished chapter 22 last night and in my head I was like what is happening. 2d
