Just finished Daughter of the Moon Goddess. It was ok but only a 2 1/2 star read for me. I felt there was too much going on in one book. #daughterofthemoongoddess #suelynntan

Bookaholicforlife @melmes I thought it was just ok. I didn‘t really care for it. It was slow and just dragged for me. 6mo

So I started and finished Sandcastle today. I saw the movie first a few weeks ago and I actually really liked it so I was excited to give the graphic novel a try. I was disappointed with it and I think the movie conveyed the concept a lot better. A 1 star read for me.

DivineDiana That‘s too bad. 🙁 10mo
Bookaholicforlife @DivineDiana it is especially because the movie was pretty good i thought the book would be better. Oh well at least I can still enjoy the movie 10mo

I finished Guilded and gave it 3 1/2 stars. It was ok but I really licked The Lunar Chronicles better. But I was interested enough to pick up the second book when it comes out.

I read this book for my book club and unfortunately it was a 1.5 star read for me. I thought it was a beautiful story and I loved Vasya but overall I found myself board reading it. I think for me it was just really slow and o didn‘t really care for the writing style.

bnp Interesting. I liked the first one in this series, but couldn't get into the 2nd & 3rd. 11mo

A 2.5 star read for me. I liked the first book better and I couldn‘t get into this one as much as I did the first one. A shame since Hades is one of my favorite villains and Jasmine is one of my least favorite princesses. Rating it so so because the plot wasn‘t horrible and had me mildly interested.

A pretty good book. A solid 3 1/2 stars for me. I can‘t wait to see what happens next, especially because it ended on a cliffhanger. I will say that I wish that there was more backstory to some of the crew members as I felt like I knew nothing about some of them and for me it was hard to get into at first.

Merry December everyone!
I decided to try and read two books for this month. One being exclusively a before bed/morning book. I‘m going to reread the Illuminae files since I last read it when book one first came out and forgot to read books 2 and 3 even though I bought them. I‘m glad I can binge read them though. I‘m also reading along with the audiobook so I can hear the full cast. #nighttimereading #illuminaefiles #booksinbed

So it‘s that time again for Dewey‘s 24 hour readathon! I‘m getting a late start because I was having a bad day and wasn‘t feeling up to it at first but now I kind of regret the late start. I‘ll read till 10 pm tomorrow to make up for it. I‘m gonna start by reading Fairest of all. No photos this time around because my camera on my phone is broken :( #dewaug #reversereadathon

Book haul! I had to pick up Christine‘s new book at Barnes and Noble and walked out with step sister and Much Ado About Mean Girls. (Oops 🤷‍♀️) I also went to target and picked up Mirror, Mirror.

Shadow of the Fox | Julie Kagawa

Started reading Shadow of the Fox. I‘m about 62 pages in and if I‘m honest I‘m not really enjoying it so far I may wind up DNFing this book though I‘m trying to give it at least 100-150 pages before I make that final decision.

Caffeinated_Reader It‘s so good!!! I loved this one. Maybe try it again in a week or a month? It‘s really great! 4y
Bookaholicforlife @Caffeinated_Reader I‘m going to keep reading for a bit to see if I can get into it. It may just be the beginning I‘m not into. If not, I‘ll take your advice and try picking it up again I. A week or month or so. Thank you. I‘m glad you enjoyed it. 4y
Caffeinated_Reader @Bookaholicforlife no prob! It helps me when I can‘t get into a book, good luck! 4y

Bookaholicforlife @Kshakal you definitely won‘t be disappointed! The book gives more details on the characters that are great to know. The ending is a little different in the book but personally, I like the book ending better. I most definitely recommend reading it. 4y

Hour 20 (part 2)- decided to make my next read a graphic novel and one considerably more lighthearted. The second volume of the lady killed series is something that I‘ve been wanting to read for a while but never got around to.

Hour 20- I just finished my reread of the fault in our stars and it was amazing as always. This book honestly has me in tears every time I read it but I don‘t love it any less. I think for the rest of the readathon though I‘m going to stick with much more lighthearted books. #deweys24hourreadathon #readathon

My current read. I started the first 36 pages last week whilst on a cruise with my family thinking that this was the perfect book to read on a cruise ship. Unfortunately I wasn‘t able to get that far in it. This is also the first adult book I‘m reading instead of a YA or middle grade novel. I‘m sick in bed today so a perfect time for hot tea and a book.

And now a tumblr post that had me dying of laughter. Honestly, this is just one of the truest things I‘ve ever read. Other than the singing they are incredibly similar to the point that in my minds eye Thorne looked like Flynn and Cress looked like Rapunzel. In fact after Thorne cut her hair I kept forgetting that Cress‘ hair was still blonde and not brown. Who else agrees? #thelunarchronicles #flynnrider #carswellthorne #tangled #disney

I just finished Stars above and overall I give the book a 3.5/ 5 stars. Not counting the last story in the book because that one alone is a 5/5 stars and worth its own rating. The other stories were cute and entertaining but I didn‘t fall as hard for them as I did the last story or the Lunar Chronicles.

Taking a break from the Lunar chronicles( I‘m on Scarlet) to read what if it‘s us. And this quote resonates with me on a personal level when I walk into Starbucks. Not that I think any writer is really pretentious. I‘m just riddled with anxiety and feel like any writer there would hate what I‘m writing if they saw it. Does that make sense?

LazyDays Judgemental people have more insecurities then they like to show. If you show your work to a person, and they only have non constructive criticism then their opinion isn't worth your time.💗 4y
LazyDays Any one who has only negative criticism has a personal problems with themselves. Confidant people help lift you up and show you different ways, they don't put others down. 4y
