I honestly can‘t help but love this series. 😅 This one really started to branch out the multiple POVs a lot more than the previous ones. I always enjoy that. I‘m so glad I saw through the bs at the beginning or I would have been awfully upset. I still adore Richard and Kahlan. Even though he is still a big doofus a lot of the time. Zedd was fun as always. The supporting cast continues to be fleshed out more and I love many of them as well.

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm This was one of my January #Roll100, counts as a “Mini Chunkster” for #ChunksterChallenge2024, and is one of my continued #SeriesLove2024 reads. ❤️ 1w

Just finished my first chunkster of the year and I really enjoyed it. As with most historical non-fiction, I realized just how much I never learned in school and my TBR got longer. I‘m definitely going to read the rest of the Romanov series by this author!

Completed my “Chunkster” read for #ChunksterChallenge2024. This biography of Red Sox great Ted Williams is well-written and very readable. A lot about baseball, yes —but also much about Ted‘s childhood, his troubled personal life —and all the gory details you can handle about his head being frozen for posterity. 😳 Definitely recommend, @GinaKButler !

GinaKButler It‘s on my list!!! Thank you! 2mo

Amiable @UwannaPublishme Right? It‘s weird and cringey—you almost can‘t believe it‘s true, but it is! Ted‘s head is in a deep-freeze container somewhere in Arizona. 😬 1mo
UwannaPublishme Very creepy! I had no idea! 😬 1mo

End of February check-in on my #chunksterchallenge2024 book. I‘m more than 2/3s in and should finish mid-March. Peter has met and married Catherine. He has finally defeated Sweden (there has been a lot of war in this past section) and the European stage has been changing. Peter is now turning his attention on who will be his heir, and the obvious choice is a dismal disappointment. So many interesting tidbits in this book! @Amiable

Amiable I‘m so glad you are find it a worthwhile read! 2mo

34 hours, 960 pages in print. This definitely qualifies as a chunkster for #chunksterchallenge2024. Book 7 in the Cormoran Strike series—my favorite to date. Disturbing book with Robyn going undercover in a cult ?? stressful! But absolutely loved the pacing. Great character development in this one too: Strike and his ½ siblings, Pat and her fam, Robyn and her fam. The tension btwn Robyn and Strike. Love it! Where‘s the next one! #serieslove2024

Librarybelle I have all of the books but need to get back to the series. It‘s been so long - I may have to start back at the beginning. Cormoran Strike is one of my favorite characters ever! 2mo
BarbaraBB Seems a great series. 2mo

julesG @Librarybelle Same here. I liked the series but stopped reading it because of the hullabaloo around JKR. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 2mo
TheSpineView This was my favorite book in the series also. The ending had my jaw on the floor. So excited for the next book. 2mo
Read4life This is on my TBR & I still need ‘published by Hachette‘ for #52BookClub2024 Thanks! 2mo
Bluebird @Librarybelle and I think each book gives enough backstory that you won‘t feel lost if you read the next one. 2mo
Librarybelle Good to know! I think I‘m just looking for an excuse to read the first one all over again. 😂 2mo
Bluebird @julesG an author‘s politics and personal opinions can destroy what was otherwise good reading. I try to ignore all but their written books, but I know that sometimes it‘s too hard to separate the artist from the art. 😞 2mo
julesG I agree. I might come back to Strike one day. 2mo
Crazeedi I might have to look for this series! 2mo
Bluebird @librarybelle😂😂😂 don‘t let my comment stop you—love this series from the start.. 2mo
Bluebird @Crazeedi it‘s a great one. Wonderful writing, excellent characters and always interesting mysteries to solve. 2mo

Free translation: Dark is the Night
This story is two time line: in the present 2020, Sandra, a famous singer in a band, wants to take sometime for herself after her divorce with Olivia. Her manger found her a place in the peninsule coast. She goes by incognito, to this hotel called Hotel Paris. There, Sandra feels strange sensations, eerie atmosphere and hears a song. She decides to follow the song, to see where it comes from⬇️

Gissy She will found that there is a mystery attached to the hotel, the song and the village. There is also some tension in the village due to the presence of these wolves. During this process to explore the hotel, where the song comes from and her visits to the village, she will meet two journalist and a friend came to visit her. Then this friend disappeared. Everything is connected. During those actions we go back and forth to the 1920s. ⬇️ 2mo

Gissy (Cont.) In those parts during the 1920‘s we will know Candela and her secret. What happened to her? Her relation with the hotel, the village, the song and why all their is connected with Sandra. This is a paranormal/mystery with a touch of thriller. It is a long novel (600 pages) so many things happen. Let‘s say that is not a great novel because there were part of this paranormal element that I found absurd, but kept my attention.⬇️ 2mo

Gissy I liked more those past parts than the present; and there were characters in the present time that I enjoyed more than the main character🤷🏽‍♀️If you see the cover, you will see a clue.

First time I read a novel by this author. 3.5/3.8⭐️
