This book was a #struggle for me to get through.

It‘s one of those books where I‘m enjoying it while reading it, not quite captivated but interested enough, but when I put it down I don‘t really want to pick it back up again and I can‘t figure out why 🤷‍♀️

I have 63 pages left and we‘re getting through this right now come hell or high water!

marleed Oh dang, I really liked it. It‘s always interesting to read opposing opinions! 2y
BooksMcD I just finished it and overall I enjoyed it. The last 63 pages, including the author‘s note about how much was true, helped a lot. Endings are big for me. I liked the neat end of the fictional story but also I‘m glad so many bits were true. I occasionally thought I‘d enjoy a non-fiction account of women WWI spies or a limited tv series of this story more. I liked this book and still recommend people read it, but it‘s not my personal fave. 2y

Enjoyed this YA novel, particularly the theme that even when one excels within a system of oppression, their success is precarious and they don‘t actually benefit like they want to think they do. Occasionally it‘s hard to see her willfully ignoring the signs of trouble, but that‘s a realistic response to evidence that challenges an established world view.

Guys...I couldn‘t. This was just bad. The dialogue was awful, the characters were just annoying. It was like being around a bunch of high schoolers that have NOTHING interesting to say. Skip this. #struggle

Dealing in Dreams | Lilliam Rivera
Mehso-so

I really enjoy seeing a Latinx dystopian YA story, and the way the book flips gender roles is interesting. I also particularly liked how gender fluidity is presented. I think this works well as the first of a series but there aren‘t current plans for a sequel and as a standalone the ending was a bit too rushed and open-ended for my taste.
