Since I began to read it after I heard sooo many good things I was not so impressed as I maybe would have been if I read it without hearing anything (cause I was expecting a little bit more) but overall it's a good YA read...3.5/5

pppooraikul A Czech translation? :) 6y
bibli0_brain I had the same experience with the book. It wasn't bad, but I wasn't blown away like everyone said I would be 6y
Odd-Job-Librarian I had a similar experience with this book. So many people were raving about it but I was pretty much 'meh. It's alright'. 6y
andireja Same here. Kind of found the writing-style a little dull... 6y

I like this book, read it a few times and bought myself a new copy...as always book is sooo much more detailed then the movie, so who ever watch the movie and never read a book is missing out a lot...4/5

PenguinInFlight One of my all time favorites...I rarely re-read books, but this I've read at least 5 times since it was released. ☺️ 6y
Victoria_C I loved that book as well. 6y
EchoLogical Definitely one of my favorite movies, I'll have to get my hands on the book one day! 6y

"Second star to the right and straight on till morning" - I'm so in love with this book that I tattooed this quote a few years back...this is my favorite book of this kind since I was around 7 years old...unfortunately my first copy got lost so I bought myself a new one :)

RanaElizabeth Love Peter Pan and Barrie. 6y

Mehso-so

Not so impressed with this book...it's ok I guess - it's readable just not so worth the hype that is given...nor the movie even though I love Julia Roberts...

BookBoggart I personally loved it! Granted it came into my life at a time where I found it helpful. I could read it now and be, meh. This book I find is rather situational to ones place in life at that moment. 6y
Vexingcircumstance So it took me minute to figure out that that was Eat Pray Love in another language. All I say was "Jedi" and I was trying to figure out why Julia Roberts picture was on a Star Wars book. I'm sleepy. And I'm a geek. So...lol 6y

Ericmanciniwriter @Vexingcircumstance fanfic opportunity? 6y
Robothugs Sorry about the book, but love the photo if it's any consolation! 😅 6y
GoldenGirl I didnt like it either. I just felt like she was bitching about everything. I didn't even make it past the 3rd chapter. 6y
Tanner @Mary-JaneGrant @WanderingBookaneer Me too - it really spoke to me, but I was going through some turmoil in my life. I haven't wanted to reread it because I'd hate to feel "meh" over it (and I likely would). 6y
Abby-J I never figured out the appeal of this book. To me the story read as "Rich, white lady is sad, so she uses her money to go on adventures and appropriate bits of culture along the way." A book about a Jedi finding herself would have been way cooler. 6y
Vexingcircumstance @Eamann lol I haven't written fanfic in about twenty years but that is tempting. 6y

Night Film: A Novel | Marisha Pessl

A lot of people call me crazy but I really enjoy autumn and winter and fluffy blankets and cold wind blowing outside...there's nothing more satisfying than being all wrapped up in a warm bed with some good books and movies/TV shows...and now - that time of a year is finally here 📚💻

Frecks-Booklover4life I love your pillow cases. You make me want to google and order! 6y

Vikz Not crazy at all. I love autumnal days in front of the fire with a cup of tea and a book. 6y
MyNamesParadise Night Film is the most atmospheric book you will ever read! I loved it so much! I don't think they could adapt it into a film even if they tried! 6y
Alfoster Oh yes, loved this book! 6y
Hobbinol I feel the same way! 6y
katedensen Fantastic book!!! 6y
Posemn I love autumn and winter as well. I can be in bed as soon as it's dark ( which is pretty early in MN) and read all evening. 6y
tpixie Love cozying up under a blanket with a good book and boy does this sound like a good book 6y

A "so-so" YA read...3/5
Not so impressed even though I was drawn by that "groundhog day" theme

sweetbooksofanj My favorite among lauren oliver books is Vanishing Girls, and I'm looking forward to her new book Replica- that interesting flip book I badly need. 6y

This book series never got translated in my country and I personally think it's a huge miss...I discovered them by accident and I'm so glad I did...it's so twisted and it's definitely not for everyone but I love it, I don't know why but I really love it...

thegirlwiththelibrarybag They're messed up but I read them all too 😂 6y
SheilaChew I read them all too - guilty pleasure reading. 6y
SecretLivesOfFictionLovers My mum introduced me to the series when I was a teen - I think I was 15 - and I absolutely adored the series! I've reread them many times since. 6y

BookHermit I must reread these as an adult. I was totally obsessed within them at twelve. 6y
PenguinInFlight I haven't retread these as an adult, and I keep meaning to. I read pretty much everything she had in print when I was 12/13. 6y
Mimi28 These books were such an escape from my already crazy childhood. I was fascinated with them. 6y

Tidewater: A Novel of Pocahontas and the Jamestown Colony

I love Pocahontas. As a child I was obsessed with this romantic Disney's version but as I grew older I started exploring more historically accurate stories and this book is definitely the best one I read so far based on her life ... 4/5
P.S. However tonight I'm enjoying "Colors of the wind" all over again ;)

Alfoster Love the pillows! 6y
Librarygal08 Have to check this out love Pocahontas ❤ 6y

4.5/5 ... Can't help myself when it comes to these kind of books, animal as a main character/narrator is always a "pick" for me

4/5 ... I still choose "pick" even though it's not that memorable to me as everyone described her to be, looking forward to see a movie adaptation though

GirlMeetsBook I feel like the movie will be hard to watch after reading the book because I know whodunit! lol thoughts? 6y
