My wrap-up for #SciFiJune

It seems I read quite good books! And I read so much in English, but well. Maybe I should read more in my native language 🤔

truebookaddict Great job, Johanna. Thanks for joining us for another readathon. Sorry for the delay in stopping by...I've been on vacation. I'll be drawing the giveaway winner shortly.
Hope to see you for next month's High Summer Readathon.

Sour Candy: A Novella | Kealan Patrick Burke

This had quite nice atmosphere: there were some moments when I loved how I didn't know what was true and what wasn't.

Plot was really solid, no complains about it. But there were big holes in logic. The ending gave us a solution that didn't make sense if you ponder it a bit.

This was interesting and entertaining but didn't get me to bite my nails.

Thanks for for recommendation @WJCintron

WJCintron I‘m glad you took the time to read it. I‘m sorry it wasn‘t a pick for you. Thanks for keeping me posted. 🙏😃 1mo
PageShifter @WJCintron I liked this and had good time with it! And did you notice how there was mentioned a novella by Ray Bradbury?? You can find it from this tagges book, you might like this book! 1mo
WJCintron @PageShifter Yay! I‘m glad you did. Thanks for reminding me. I just stacked it! 😃🙏 1mo

This was an installment that showed what has happened before the first book in the series. Erik and Hese were there and they were actually the only familiar characters.

This book made me want to have some similar kind of party on my garden, that looked so amazing!

I thought I would love this but this wasn't really great addition to the series. Yes this was a cute story but didn't give much new information or so...

I felt for characters, they had touching backstories and it was nice to see how they had went through those difficulties.

Beautiful book and there were some awesome landscapes to look at. This was somehow really peacuful and cute.

Clwojick These books are so sweet! I‘ve only read the one, but I want to own them all. 😍❤️ 2mo

This really was worth reading but also a bit demanding book to read.

The world and atmosphere were so much more appealing in this book than in the first installment.

Story was interesting and there were some thrilling moments as well. Pacing was a bit slow, especially during the first 50 % of the book.

I loved Hades! And I also loved how Persephone wasn't some damsel in distress. There were also nice secondary characters and fun banter. I loved main characters' relationship, it was sweet.

The world was interesting: there were politics and Hades, Zeus etc. were titles - I didn't get enough of it.

This was really entertaining book and I thought I wouldn't like this.

Clwojick I‘ve been humming and hawing over this one. I keep thinking I‘ll pick it up through my library, but for whatever reason I always end up picking something else. I wasn‘t sure I‘d like it, but glad to see you had similar thoughts prior to reading it… ☺️ 2mo
PageShifter @Clwojick I really had!! This was a bit insta for my taste but I still ended up liking this. This was like retelling of a Beauty and the Beast and that was the part I loved! Their relationship was much sweeter than I thought it would be. 2mo
TheSpineView Awesome! 2mo
PageShifter Thank you @TheSpineView 😄 2mo

I planned TBR for June, here are fantasy/scifi books. My list to choose from :) #SciFiJune

Clwojick I love the Etiquette and Espionage series from Gail Carringer. Hoping to read Soulless for the #NoShameReadathon 2mo
PageShifter @Clwojick That series I haven't read!! But this series by her I have finished and even wanted to read this short-story. I hope you'll enjoy this series as much as I 💞💞 That readathon seems to be unfamiliar to me 🧐 2mo
Clwojick I just heard about it a few days ago, but it‘s been running since the beginning of the year. I decided I had to join in though, since the prompts are all sub genres. 💛 2mo

PageShifter @Clwojick sounds fun :) 2mo

PageShifter @truebookaddict Thank you, I am so excited. Even though I have already edited my TBR sooo many times. But. I hope I'll get some of these read as well, haha 2mo

I was only supposed to return books, and let my kid pick something out if he wanted. I'm trying to reduce my library stack. I returned two. And checked out... three... 🙈
But seriously, how could I not? Especially with #SciFiJune approaching! Uh... is the tagged book Sci-Fi, or did I get that on false premises? 😂

saresmoore River Song ♥️♥️♥️ 4y
Leniverse @saresmoore Best character ever! 🖤 4y
Moray_Reads Radiance is phenomenal. @Leniverse @saresmoore Otherwise I have to respectfully disagree with you ladies, River Song was one of the reasons I stopped watching Doctor Who 😳 4y

Moray_Reads @Leniverse I know. I just found her unbearable. It was the recurring characters that finally made me switch off 4y
saresmoore @Moray_Reads Too funny! I found Clara to be a bit tedious, but River is one of my favorites. I mean, Alex Kingston is stunning. I also thought she made an excellent Moll Flanders. 4y
Leniverse @Moray_Reads Are you going to give it another chance with the new doctor in September? 4y
Moray_Reads @Leniverse I probably will. I usually give every new doctor a chance to draw me back in and I have to see what it will be like with a female doctor after all this time! 4y
