This one was a quick read…not anything earth-shatteringly impressive, but entertaining! Now back to The Southern Book Club‘s Guide to Slaying Vampires…

I put The southern Book Club‘s Guide to Slaying Vampires on hold because it was too bulky to bring into the BWCA, so I started this one on the kindle. Not a bad backdrop.

Started this a few days ago! I‘ve heard good things, and so far, I am enjoying it.

I finished this like a week ago, and honestly, it was not very good at all. The storyline was a bit absurd in my opinion, and I found none of the characters likable.

Another super hyped up book that just felt average to me. The first 100+ pages were VERY slow moving…at least the view from my hammock was good!

Well, I‘ve started this one, and I‘m afraid it‘ll be another popular book that doesn‘t live up to the hype for me. Fingers crossed!

I have read the first 2 books in this series as they become available at the library. It‘s a very shallow series, but they are quick reads, and I‘m still enjoying them. I don‘t find Belly (or Conrad) to be particularly likable characters, but I‘m interested to see where this goes.

This book was ok. It was a bit slow-moving at times. I could see this being an overall decent series, but I‘m not sure I‘ll continue. I‘ve got too many other books I‘d rather read!

Well, I finally finished it. It took about halfway through the book to get interesting, and I felt the ending a bit cheesy? Maybe? The writing was far too frilly for my taste, however, the story itself (once it picked up, of course) had me gripped. I‘d say it‘s between pick and so-so.

I got this in the mail and decided to give it a quick read. I‘m not a graphic novel fan, but I LOVED the Netflix show so much, that I decided to give it a shot. It is such a heartwarming story, but I‘m definitely still not a graphic novel fan🤷🏻‍♀️

thereadingpal Loved it too. I need to pick up the second volume 4mo

This book was was a borderline pick…it was a very quick and straightforward storyline, with very frustrating truths about how “inconvenient” women were just thrown into asylums.

Only 45 pages in, and this is already 1,000 times better than my last read. Let‘s gooooooo!! Also, ignore the target sticker…it was very resistant to being removed. I need to get after it with the blow dryer.

This was a very slow moving book, and nothing really happened until the end. Overall, this book bored me. I just wanted it to end.

I ran out of shelf space (again), so I stained some cheap crates and glued them together. Done.

This was probably my favorite book in the series so far. The writing is still not excellent, but I prefer her writing from cassias and Nesta‘s point of view.

This book started out promising and then nothing happened. It just plateaued. I have no interest in continuing the story, unfortunately.

This didn‘t get exciting until about the last 70 pages or so…I was a bit bored. I liked the idea of it, and the attitude of the main character, but this one just a “meh” for me.

I finished this library loan today…another story that kept me interested, but the ending doesn‘t have me in a rush to get the next one. Don‘t get me wrong…I‘ll still continue, but I may be able to squeeze a few books in between before feeling the need to read the next one. Still not great writing in my opinion, but the story itself is gripping.

LitStephanie Same. Even though I have become attached to the characters so was happy everyone survived (two of them actually brought back to life), it is kind of ridiculous that they all did. I thought the writing of the first two was better. I just finished and posted my review so now going back to see what other fans of the series think. 7mo

I just finished this audiobook (not typically an audiobook fan). I wouldn‘t call this an “enjoyable” book by any means , given its content, but it was most certainly worth the listen. I‘m glad to know these women‘s stories…even though listening to how they were treated was totally enraging.

I don‘t think the writing is particularly good, and I‘m not into a lot of romance, but damnit this storyline is addictive. Book #2 is complete.

I finished this like 2 days after starting it and forgot to give my review! It was a bit more romancey than I expected, and some of the writing felt a bit juvenile. I can‘t say I didn‘t enjoy the story, though! I‘m interested in continuing the story.

Do I finally give into the (long ago) hype? Not sure I want to start another series, but this has been on my shelf for a loooooooong time.

I had high hopes for this book. I really enjoyed the Red Queen series by this author. However, I found this book hard to follow…I didn‘t get into it until the last 100 pages. Places and things weren‘t clearly introduced…they were just mentioned, and we are just supposed to know what they are…? Meh.
