I'm officially on vacation!

I love anything related to mermaids, pirates, and sea life! Plus there's glitter on the cover so...

My last book for the #summerflingread in the category of Beach Read (we classified that loosely as a regular Beach read or one where stuff takes place in the sea or on the beach).

Feel free to join the Life & Lit Facebook book group. We're currently voting on the August book!

tysephine I really enjoyed The Seafarer's Kiss! 2y

Pickpick

Hmmm... 3.5/5 ⭐

It's a solid divergent+hunger games mash up but it's by no means original.

I wish there would've been more of a development of the government + plague cover ups. The content of it that did exist was good but kept getting overshadowed by the romance. The romance was underdeveloped and super insta-love (which I hate). I also wished for more time spent comparing the poor groups vs. the government + the protests.

398.2 It's a good series. I enjoyed it. I agree about the romance. 2y
Nu20 That was my rating also. I've heard that the series gets better so I guess I'll keep going. 2y

Switching to this for the Star-Crossed Lovers category of the #summerflingread challenge. It's been on my TBR for like a year. I really liked Lu's The Young Elite but everyone says this series is better so I'm very eager to start it.

Mommamanzi I want to read it too. We also have a cone of shame on one of our dogs haha. 2y
Ubookquitous I enjoyed this one 2y

SassenachTheBookWizard @Mommamanzi oh boy! Lol. He's actually already fixed but I'm trying to get him to stop licking his paws raw and let me apply antibiotics to fix it. He's quite sensitive/allergic to something, we think 2y
Daisey Interesting, I've read this book and The Young Elites. I liked that one much better than this one, although I haven't finished either series. I'll be curious to hear your opinions. 2y
PenguinInFlight Awww! Not the cone of shame, LOL. I hope his paws heal quickly. ❤️🐾 2y
Mommamanzi Our Bella is allergic to the grass! She is cream colored but turns brown/red where she licks constantly. It's never ending with my crazy 3 dogs haha. 2y
RanaElizabeth Oh, man. We went through a licking stage with our bulldog, drove me nuts...especially as cones don't work with their head/neck shape. We eventually had him on a daily allergy pill which was great, no hives or licking and his eyes weren't as goopy. 2y
AnansiGirl Awww I hope you find the source of your pup's sensitivity/allergy. 🐾💕 2y

I desperately want to reread this one so I am using it as my Star-Crossed Lives category for the #summerflingread. Sadly, a co-worker is currently borrowing my physical copy so I'm audiobooking this one! I'm curious how or if the novella Wandfasted will influence this one.

On to my next read for the #summerflingread

KirstieE This series is on my tbr, what do you think of it ? 2y
Noahczerny @KirstieE Well its only my favorite serie ever. But you need to be into books that are more about the characters and their intricate relationship than anything else. 2y

Finished number 4! Only 3 left to go!

✔️One True pairing: Alex & Eliza
✔️Decade Old: Good Omens
✔️Friendship Goals: The Raven Boys
✔️LGBTQ+ Romance: The Seafarer's Kiss

I've enjoyed all of them but The Raven Boys has been my least favourite

Up next is probably Online Romance: Life in Outer Space

Day off work? Beautiful weather? Nagging dogs?
Reading time in the yard

This cover alone is enough to give it a go but I'm also reading it for the #summerflingread challenge in the LGBTQ+ Romance category

Challenge is being run by the Life & Lit Facebook book club with @NovelDescent @howlinglibraries and @Conqueringpageswithtea

Mehso-so

I was quite underwhelmed by this book. It was hyped so much and it fell so flat. It picked up near the end and there's good potential for the sequel (which I will give a chance). I have a really hard time saying a book is good because the very end gets interesting. By the time things started picking up, I was just exhausted with the characters. Just wanted it to finish up. Even the magic was written quite boringly...

hermyknee That's good to know - I've heard A LOT of hype about these and the Sarah J Maas series. 2y
Marmie7 I felt the same way! Maybe I just expected too much. 2y

SassenachTheBookWizard @hermyknee I feel like Maas is over hyped but I did love the books. This one...it reminded me of how Three Dark Crown's was written minus all the insta-love 2y
ReadingRover I liked the second one in this series better than the first. 2y
mjdowens I could not finish this one. Just did nothing for me. None of the people were interesting to me and the story line was blah 2y
GypsyKat The whole series was very so-so for me. 2y
Booklydear I fell into the whole hype for the raven cycle I loved the storyline but it did drag a bit and the characters I didn't get to connect the way I would have wanted to for me it was a so - so which is disappointing loved the paranormal feel to it ! 2y
soozandherbooks I couldn't agree more - this was so hyped and ended up just being so average! Such a disappointment. 2y
PleasantPhantasm The Dreamtheives is my favorite of the four. Sadly the last two books were very underwhelming. 2y
flip58 I loved this series. 2y
