Progress on my #NEWTs has stalled a bit.....but I am enjoying this one and when I do sit down to read it goes pretty quick.

At 120 pages in the only issue I have right now is that we switch between formal and informal names at an alarming rate (feels like it‘s about every other paragraph or more). Anyone else notice that?

This is another fun book in the series. The focus definitely seems to be in setting up the next book. The motivation for and the conclusion of the big adventure wasn‘t completely satisfying. But I enjoyed the focus on the characters and their relationships.

Just thought I'd share my spreadsheet I created to track books in series. I buy so many "firsts" and then I see something shiny and whoops I'm reading that. Plus, I can never remember the title of the second book when I'm shopping! Hope this helps. ??

Another great book in this series! Squidapus really loves how the characterization Senlin got in the first book is quintupled as the point of view changes to all the members of his crew. The tower is still a fascinating setting and we meet some great new characters like the Sphinx as well as get some pretty big developments and revelations. Watching these characters change and grow in they're adventure is what really makes these novels. So good!

I was previously trying to get some #audiocleaning done, but I'm having very little luck in the audiobook department lately. So, now I'm sitting down for a bit to enjoy some reading before I have to cook supper. #TheCustardProtocol #Book2

Adorable. I love Carriger‘s writing every time I read her stuff and this was no exception. Warm and funny while still being exciting, I loved every minute.

Squidapus is so excited we lucked out and found the sequel to Senlin Ascends at the used bookstore. He loved the first book and really wants to read the second because the perspective shifts to his favorite character! Should be great!

gallowbraids I am too anxious for the fourth book. I felt so sad when I finished the third because I knew the fourth isn't due out until 2020. 4d
GrilledCheeseSamurai It's a wickedly fun series! I love all 3 that have been released so far but I think this one is my favorite. I can't wait for the 4th one. 😁 3d
Squidapus @gallowbraids Well, good thing for Squidapus he has one more book to read so it's not such a long wait in between! 3d
Squidapus @GrilledCheeseSamurai Awesome! It's a great first book so a series of books that are all as good would be great! 3d

It usually takes me a bit to get into these books, but I loved this one from the start. The epilogue made it seem like it might be the last in the series? I hope not. The writing, and especially the dialogue, is amazing. These books hit all my buttons.
