A cute YA book. Arthur will meet Ben during the summer in some strange circumstances, maybe the universe wanted to connect them? You need to read the story to understand this phrase. Many things will happen that summer between these two characters from different backgrounds. I think they resolved their life situations very well taking in consideration their age, communication is the clue. Funny YA scenes and I liked the end, was different.

Martha, at age 79, wants some changes in her life and decides to commit a white collar crime with her friends at the retirement house who will help her. The scenes were unrealistic, absurds, but funny. However, I think it was too long with unnecessary scenes. Sometimes i just felt bored. 3 ⭐️

3rd book in this trilogy. For me, this last book was disappointed. There were parts that were not necessary or poorly integrated to the whole story. The end was not necessarily the one I was expecting. Many parts that we saw in the two previous books were not resolved in this one. But I still love Baz and I enjoyed Penny and Shepard interaction. 2.5/3⭐️I will keep my trilogy because there were romantic parts I loved. 😍☺️

Megabooks Yes, so many things felt unresolved! 2mo

This is a King Arthur retelling. I enjoying it very much. It is a YA maybe with silly parts but they were funny and it is full of action. There is representation to LGBTIQ+ The problem, well, there is a sequel. As a YA fantasy novel 3.8⭐️

Book number 2 in this trilogy. I can‘t say much without spoil the story. It was ok. I liked more the first book. However, at the time I read this book, I needed something light because the first books read this month where intense. So this book was silly, made me laugh and it was simple and light. I still love Baz but that Penny is so eccentric, and unique😂 3⭐️

Voya received her calling, meaning first bleeding. The ritual is that one of the ancestors will appear to assign her a task that must be completed in order to become a witch. YA fantasy with a “pinch” of sci-if which I didn‘t expect, mystery. I liked the story it was ok, entertaining but unnecessarily too long. It appeals to the importance to take decisions. I think is overrated in GR. the bleeding ritual parts were disgusting, nasty🤢3.3⭐️

Gissy Love that cover😍

TheAromaofBooks Sometimes it feels like authors just want to be kind of “edgy“ to seem more creative. 😕 4mo
Gissy @TheAromaofBooks Maybe 😳but the story was entertaining. I need to read different genres and for different audiences because I need variation in my monotone life🤣and I really love that cover with those colors, silly because that‘s maybe irrelevant to the story but I can‘t help it🤷🏽‍♀️ 4mo

This is a retelling of The Phantom of the Opera which I need to re read sometime because I love that book and love to watch different opera interpretations. This retelling is ok, a very YA, simple but what I really enjoyed is the concept to use masks to represent feelings and emotions. Love it! It was full of myths and so psychoanalytical. The end was so-so. 3.75⭐️ It seems that there will be a sequen since this book appears in GR as book #1

This books is so hyped that I had high expectations. I enjoyed it but I found that the story and characters have so many similar elements with Harry Potter, so I don‘t know what to say about the uniqueness of the story. One difference is that characters here are young adults, 17 and 18 years old but they share a lot of similarities with HP. There is a YA m-m romance which I found it so cute. Nevertheless, I will continue with the series. 3.5⭐️

Gissy I love Baz character❤️
