I adored every single one of the stories in here. There wasn‘t a single one that I would rate less than 4 stars, so please go pick this up!
This book was perfection….. until the last 2 pages. Now I‘m just dying slowly until the third one.
I started this book while I was pregnant December of 2019. Then because of how sick my pregnancy made me I put it down until I was almost due and COVID was in full swing. The similarities between the disease in the book and COVID freaked my pregnant ass out so much I had to put it back down until now (almost a full year later) and even then I could only read a chapter at a time lol. Just like all her other books I loved it but it was super freaky!
While the beginning and the end were my favorite the middle definitely was not. I thought the idea of this crazy search and find was great but I kind of feel like the execution was done poorly. There wasn't enough suspense to hold my attention and because of that it took me far longer to read this than it should have. I should have been more invested in our main character while she's having this crisis and she just didn't have much going for her.
One of the most beautifully written books I‘ve read in a long time. My best friend recommended I read it for my bookopoly game and I‘m so glad she did!
Very excited for my match to get her package! It‘s going out on Monday!! Hopefully she loves everything ♥️ #cupidbookswap
This band of adventurers had me laughing like a fool while I read. Even though the story is getting a little bit darker it still felt lighthearted enough to keep me happy.
I definitely enjoyed getting more information about my favorite sith, however I really wish the story would have focused more on what happened after the events of ‘The Phantom Menace‘. I would love to read about how he survived on his hatred and anger for all those years and what happens after. Absolutely worth the read for Star Wars fans.
So early this morning I finished ‘My Dark Vanessa‘ by Kate Elizabeth Russell and I still don‘t really have my thoughts in order. Its writing was tragically beautiful and for this to be a debut book has me reeling. When I can form coherent thoughts and put together an actual review I‘ll post the link. For right now I urge you to give this book a try!
I read quite a few negative reviews about this book, saying it wasn‘t interesting or fast paced enough. To that I say, but the slow burn was worth it! Ughh I love a good slow burn romance so much and this one didn‘t disappoint. The story was interesting enough that I truly didn‘t want to put it down even when I had to feed my 2 month old!
I‘m not usually one for a ‘coming of age‘ story but hot damn did I love this book. I absolutely loved the mystery aspect and I truly loved the characters. Maybe I‘m just not very educated but I feel like I don‘t really see many queer mystery books and this was definitely one that should be one everyone‘s radar!
After reading this for a second time I‘m still holding true to my 3.5 star rating. It wasn‘t as gripping for me as the Lunar Chronicles or Heartless which really makes me sad. I‘m still going to read the second and third book in the trilogy since I love her as a writer. I just hope Book two picks up for me.
I thought the entire thing was dark and unnerving and delightfully wicked which was exactly what I needed. Christina Henry weaves a completely believable story about boys that desperately hope to never grow up, pirates that aren't really the evil doers everyone believes, and a 'hero' that isn't what he seems.
While this book was a good look at the potential for how people would react when faced with disaster, it was not for me. I appreciated the writing and would consider giving her other book a try but I do not see myself re-reading this in the future. Truth be told if it wasn‘t picked for my bookclub I honestly don‘t think I would have picked it up myself.
At first I wasn‘t sure whether I would finish this one. Usually fantasy isn‘t what I normally read so when I first started I gave myself the first 5 chapters to decide. I wound up reading the whole thing in 2 days and I already started the second one!
Very infrequently does a sequel beat the first book in my opinion and yet that‘s exactly what Legendary did. It comes at you with the same mystery and mystical story that the first one had and throws in that beautiful dash of slow burn sexual tension. I can honestly say I think I also fell in love with Legend.
Dragons, weddings, and incest...oh my! Honestly the first quarter and the last quarter were fantastic but the middle half drug by so slowly I thought I would never finish. After demolishing the first three of these in 2 months I think it‘s time for something mindless and fun!
Having only read a couple Star Wars books that took place during Darth Vader‘s era I found this one very interesting from a future perspective. I like reading about our heroes grown and with children of their own as they continue to try and protect the galaxy. I am extremely interested in reading more about Jacen in future books!
