What a fantastic follow up to the first book! I loved the first one and was not disappointed by its sequel.

This book picks up where the first one left off and is full of nonstop action and adventure. It is just as faced paced as the previous book.

5feet.of.fury It‘s true! And I always defend to other people about it: “it‘s still reading! We read to children so they can start practicing literacy!” But when it‘s me then I‘ll be like, “I read x # of books, well, some of them were audio books” I dunno whyyyy when I know it‘s the same. Im still learning or being entertained as I would if I was looking at it on a piece of paper! 3w
JoeMo I used to think this way until my life got so busy that now probably 90% of what I read is by audiobook. My brain is still processing info and I‘m engaged in really interesting stories and learning new and different things. I‘d love to have more free time and energy to sit down and read, and to do so without falling asleep, but audiobooks have been absolutely saved me! 3w
Susanita That drives me crazy! Of course it‘s still reading. You‘re using the same area of the brain to process the information. I‘m glad to have listened to (most of) the books I‘ve read this way. 3w

RowReads1 I agree it‘s not a lesser experience at all. There is a difference in how you process and retain it. I don‘t think there‘s anything wrong w point that out. 3w
AudiobookingWithLeah It still counts because you're still consuming the book. Whether you read it or listen to it. I tend to say the word listening or reading in my reviews because I want people to know that I did my “consuming“ via audiobook. 3w
KathyWheeler Yes! 3w

Hermes: Heavenly Days | Alice Charbin, Rachael Canepari

What a luxurious book! But that is no surprise considering this is a book from the iconic brand, Hermès. I should expect nothing less from the fashion house.

The book is beautifully made. It has a gorgeous linen cover in the brand‘s iconic orange. The pages inside are so thick. I don‘t think I‘ve ever seen a book with pages this thick.

This book took me by surprise (in a good way)!

I loved how fast paced the book was. There was never a dull moment. Sometimes fantasy books can take a while to get into the story, but this book dove right in. I was flipping through the pages just wanting to know what would happen next.
