I did a buddy read of this books and really enjoyed it! Looking forward to the sequel in a few weeks 😊 The book has a decent pace, lots of intrigue, with lots of tension filled relationships. The one thing I wasn‘t entirely ok with was the aggressive male sexual harassment and assault in a few scenes. I don‘t think it was necessary and seemed misplaced. :/

I just finished this book last night and loved it! Such a great sequel to the Star Touched Queen. It was a quick read, and if you like magic, story telling and a little bit of romance then this is a book you'll enjoy! 4/5 ⭐️

This book has been on my to be read list FOREVER. I'm super guilty of having every intention of reading a book, but then getting distracting by other books! 🙊🤷🏻‍♀️🙊

Mehso-so

This book was ok. Really intriguing premise, but for the 150 pages everything was really slow and it was hard to get through. After that things picked up and I found I was a little hooked on the storyline, but overall the story did tend to drag a little. I will probably still read the 2nd book though, if that's helps you decide if you should read it! (It's a duology)

I just finished The Name of the Wind and could NOT put it down 😍 I enjoyed the old school epic feel to the writing, and the perspective of hearing the story after it's already happened, and hearing from the main character point of view was fascinating. The world building was well done and I'm looking forward to reading the next book! 5/5 ⭐️ Not a quick read, unless you have time and for fans of LOTRs, Rain Wilds Chronicles, The Pellinor Series

I'm in love with this candle from @novelheartbeat - it's called Court of Dreams ❤️

"The Court of Dreams. The people who knew that there was a price, and one worth paying, for that dream. The bastard- born warriors, the Illyrian half breed, the monster trapped in a beautiful body, the dreamer born into a court of nightmares...And the huntress with an artist's soul."

"Moria stood at his back, dagger raised. Gavril pushed the door. It did not budge. He eyed it and seemed ready to bash his shoulder into it when she whispered, “You cannot fight with a dislocated sword arm, Kitsune. Kick it.”

He hesitated.

“If you fall on your arse, I‘ll not laugh.” She paused. “Or not loudly." "

Thinking of reading all of these before Tower of Dawn is released! Anyone else thinking of doing a re-read?

TheLibraryMonster Me, actually ! I've been intending to reread these since some time ago ! 5y
BookFreakGeek @TheLibraryMonster Glad it's not just me!! I feel like I read it so long ago that I need a refresher 😊 5y
TheLibraryMonster @BookFreakGeek I'm actually afraid I might not like them as much rereading them and would DNF the reread 😂 *whisper: it happened once with book 1* 5y

BookFreakGeek @TheLibraryMonster I've had that thought too! I haven't read it in 5 years, what if I feel differently?! Especially since I'm still on a bit of a SJM high from ACOWAR 😂😭 5y
TheLibraryMonster @BookFreakGeek I'm currently close to finishing ACOWAR 😂 I feel you so bad 😭😭😭 5y
BookFreakGeek @TheLibraryMonster omg I finished it when it came out in May and I'm still not over it or that series 😭😭😭 5y

BookFreakGeek @TheLibraryMonster Ahhhhhhh so many feels!!!! I hope you enjoy the rest of it!! 😊 5y
TheLibraryMonster @BookFreakGeek I am !! I wish it went a bit faster though ! I hope the finale doesn't destroy me too much 😂😂 5y
BookFreakGeek @TheLibraryMonster I survived if that's any indication 😂 but I did have a serious book hangover haha 5y

This was the first book I read by any of the Bronte sisters! I loved it 😊 What's your favourite book by the Bronte sisters?

TheLibraryMonster I've only read Jane Eyre, loved it at first, then it stopped grabbing me and I didn't finish it 😢 I'm listening to it as an audiobook little by little, until I finish it. 5y
BookFreakGeek @TheLibraryMonster Same thing for me with Jane Eyre! But I did surpringly really enjoy The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. There's a bit of mystery to it that kept me engaged! 5y
TheLibraryMonster @BookFreakGeek Mystery ? I looove mystery 💙 I'll check it out :D 5y
BookFreakGeek @TheLibraryMonster Yes a little bit (but not like a true mystery or crime book)! One of the characters past doesn't add up until right before the end and I spent the whole time trying to guess what was up haha 5y
TheLibraryMonster @BookFreakGeek I like the sound of that :) 5y

A Moveable Feast | Ernest Hemingway

A few years ago I went through this phase where I was obsessed with all things Ernest Hemingway. I think it was around the time I watched Midnight in Paris for the first time, and I'd been doing a reread of Gatsby. Anyone else go through reading "phases"?

TheLibraryMonster Mine depend on movies 😂 If I watched The Hobbit or LotR or Narnia or HP some book-to-movie adaptation, I'm super likely to get into a phase reading those 😂 5y

These books were on my TBR list at the start of June! I've only read Soundless so far, but it was great! I think the Glittering Court will be next, after I finish The Raven Cycle.

Really loved this series! It pulled me out of my ACOWAR slump and got me reading again! Do you have any books that have pulled you out of a slump/book hangover??

Sophoclessweetheart Book slumps and hangovers are the worst. Laini Taylor has managed to get me out of mine and sometimes HP helps. 6y
BookFreakGeek @SeelieWarrior I've yet to read any Laini Taylor, but it's close to the top of my TBR pile! My classic go to is the hobbit 😊 6y

Hunted is a fairytale retelling of Beauty and the Beast with a twist. If you love a good retelling, you'll definitely enjoy this book! It's a quick read and not part of a series so there's no need to worry about cliffhangers. 😊🥀📖 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#bookaddict #booklove #bookreview

Caraval | Stephanie Garber

I really enjoyed Caraval! I was expecting it to be too similar to other stories out there but I was wrong. Lots of adventure packed into every chapter, and despite being a series you could read it without stressing too much about what will happen next 4/5 ⭐️ Full review on my blog via Instagram 😊

DuskAngelReads I've just recently read Caraval and absolutely loved it! It was so mysterious, fun and full of action. Now only gotta wait for the next book in the series! 😫 6y
BookFreakGeek @DuskAngelReads Totally agree!! I did not realize at first that it was a series and I just can't wait for the next one! It's going to be so good 😊 6y
LaylaFray I was really surprised by Caraval! I didn't think I'd love it as much as I did 😍 Can't wait for the sequel! 6y
