“It's a very difficult era in which to be a person, just a real, actual person, instead of a collection of personality traits selected from an endless Automat of characters. And if all of us are play-acting, there can be no such thing as a soul mate, because we don't have genuine souls.”

#LilithJuly Day 17: This book features #Criminal families and Curse Workers. Iphigene‘s review: “Holly Black was able to make this book less about the love triangle and more about the struggle of his protagonist. I wouldn‘t have enjoyed this book if Black‘s writing didn‘t have depth, but it does. She introduces enough internal and external tension to make it believable.” Her full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-4pe
It‘s all fun and games at Hannah‘s sweet 16, until she and her friends break the rules. What results is a true test of morality and friendship.
A friend told me to read this so I did. I didn‘t love it, I didn‘t hate it. It‘s definitely one of those quick summer reads that holds your attention by the pool. #foolishgames #lilithjuly
I believe that games of spite, lying, hating, and hunger are games that can't really be won, and are all #FoolishGames to play. I have read three of these game-titled books and one (The Lying Game) is in my #TBR stack.
