Thank you @MommyOfTwo for the great book and the awesome Harry Potter bag as part of my #SFMBC package. The bag is excellent! It‘s actually just what I need. I love it 🥰 Perfect size! Also a friend of mine just read the book so I‘m excited for that too! Sorry for all the postal confusion. It‘s hectic here as always.

I read this book as a possible supplemental text for my students while we read Frankenstein together. I didn‘t hate it, but was left feeling kinda meh. I liked the premise very much but wished that Elizabeth‘s character was less 2-dimensional and more complex. The novel was plot driven and I wasn‘t surprised by very much. Typically, I love YALit but this felt contrived. Feeling badly to give it such a hohum review, but I just wanted more! 3/5⭐️

Readergrrl The acknowledgments section was my favorite part of the whole novel. In particular, "To Lord Byron and Percy Shelley, thanks for being insufferable and thinking there was no way Mary could write something better than you two could. Joke's on you." 20h
SexyCajun I really enjoyed this book 20h
Readergrrl @SexyCajun I am so sorry! I hate it when some disparages a book that I loved!! I think I had an idea in my head already of what I wanted Elizabeth to be like and nothing except that would have made my feverish little brain happy! I‘m still offering it to my students and I‘m sure they will set me right! 😊 20h

SexyCajun @Readergrrl no need to be sorry..I read the original Frankenstein and it was awesome especially for it's time period.. Having said that, I'm also a big fan of Y A books and going in, I knew this would be (and supposed to be) different.. I welcomed the different spin on it 🥰 19h
LibrarianRyan I 100% agree. I didn‘t get the big deal and why everyone was so wow over this book. They talk about how “strong” Elizabeth was, but I didn‘t think she was strong at all. 19h
StaceyKondla This one fell flat for me, too. I love Kiersten White and especially her And I Darken trilogy. This one didn‘t live up. Was just sort of okay 🤷‍♀️ I do love the dig at Percy though big time 😉 18h

This was a really good read. Tells us the back story of Mr Rochester and then his thoughts on the events featured in Jane Eyre. I loved seeing it through his eyes.

I did not like this one all that much. Some of the new characters irritated me and the actions of some of the old were out of character. Suddenly Paige started to get pop culture heavy and it didn‘t fit with the first book. The “twists” got annoying, every chapter did not need one. Maybe it was because I read them back to back that this one bothered me, but it didn‘t have the same feeling as the first. I would pan if it wasn‘t book 2/3.

Just because Spike matches. Also, it shows just how tiny he is when next to the book ♥️ #catsoflitsy
