This was a completely charming memoir. I loved all the movie and party stories. He has lead a very interesting life with a mindset that I aspire to. Loved it.

Court of Mist and Fury | Sarah J Maas

Struggling with this one. Less than 100 pages in. I don't like how weak and ignorant Feyre is regarding her life and Tamlin. I know that's probably what the author is going for but I wish she was a more independent person and would think for herself.

Hestapleton Stick with it! This is my favorite in the series. 5d
TheBookKeepers I second what @Hestapleton says! 5d
catsuit_mango I just read it and had the same opinion of the first 100 pages. But it is worth it, keep at it a little more :) 5d

I absolutely adored this book! Such an amazing world and the ending was intense. I can't wait for the next one! I loved the characters and the way she portrays magic of the divine vs blood magic. It had a dark gothic feel which I find isn't common in YA. This comment on the book is a perfect description. #highlyrecommend

I don't think I've ever read a book where I've learned so much or that made me think about all the possibilities of the future. I could read this book multiple times and learn something new everytime. There is so much interesting information and ideas told in a easily readable way. I found this completely fascinating and will likely read it again in the future. #highlyrecommend #mustread

manifestsanity Loved this book. Rereading Sapiens right now. Harari is brilliant and hilarious. 4w

The Test | Sylvain Neuvel

I would love to study this novella in a psychology/sociology/global relations class. There are so many current society issues that the author manages to draw attention to in 100 pages. I think he creates a lot of questions especially regarding immigration practices and the effects that it has on people and also how "ideal" people are expected to react and behave in society.

I loved the story of the Haenyeo and the setting of this novel. Lisa See brought my attention to events that I had never heard of throughout Korean history. While this one I did find to be a little slow in parts it is a beautiful story about forgiveness, family and friendships. Plus the cover is so pretty it doesn't even need a filter!

This book had me hooked from the opening chapter. All of the character struggles were so well handled surrounded by a perfectly written court room mystery. I think this book would work for people of fans of many different genres. Theres nothing I can write that can truly show how perfect this book was. #highlyrecommend #mustread

This had a great girl empowering message. I loved the story and the characters were perfect. A really enjoyable quick read. The author did a great job of showing what can happen when a girl wants more than what is expected of her.

This book was very unique. I've heard it compared to 1984 but I think it stands alone. Very thought provoking about the effects of truth and lies on society. This book may have been a little over my head and I didn't grasp everything the author was trying to say but I still loved it! #highlyrecommend

This was nothing like the Disney movie. When reading it I had to put it into perspective regarding when it was written. Overall enjoyable story. I found Pinocchio a little annoying and the drawings were slightly creepy but still a classic. #catsoflitsy

I LOVED this book. It was so unique and I found myself laughing out loud at some of their plans. It is about an awkward office worker and an opinionated AI working together to stop the bad guys. They are a comedy of errors and are both so socially awkward in their own ways that i was greatly entertained. Clever writing, if I was to read this again there would be more of the authors ideas that I missed the first time. Plus love the cover!

So this is a book where I don't understand the popularity. The chapters written in a second person narrative were odd and overall i found the story boring and couldn't really figure out their world. Not for me.

sammisho Same! 3mo
cherinium I don't get the hype, either. I didn't hate it, so I did finish the series, but the best I could say is that it was just ok. Definitely not hype worthy, IMO. 3mo

This was a great thriller. I haven't enjoyed one this much since The Woman in the Window. Original storyline, a certain level of creepy and it definitely had enough to keep me guessing where it was going. I hope this author writes more. #highlyrecommend
