Sorcery of Thorns | Margaret Rogerson

Done with Sorcery of Thorns, it was a very slow book for me. I liked the idea of the story, romance was a little too much of a slow burner, and I think 200 pages less would have gotten the plot where it ended up just as well. Enjoyed overall, but won‘t reread.

I loved the musical, the book was very much eh. It had a solid idea behind it but just dragged and dragged. Won‘t continue the series.

Eh, it didn‘t do it for me. The writing is superb, but the character was so unlikable , annoying even.

The Remains of the Day | Kazuo Ishiguro

Halfway through and it doesn‘t do anything for me. Pity because I only hear praise for it. 😕I think I will continue to finish this book , but I might just admit that Kazuo Ishiguro may not be my author after all. Considering how depressed I was after “ Never Let me Go” and bored to distraction by his short stories....

BookwormM I didn‘t enjoy this one 7mo

It‘s snowing and I‘m done with this book! I really enjoyed the suspense, loved the atmospheric description and relationships between characters were very interestingly built.

melissajayne One of my favourite reads. 9mo

I am not having a very good luck with fairy tale retellings lately. This one started so well, progressively slowed down and got dull enough for me to drop it 187 pages in. I will be taking a break from the genre, it might not be my thing after all.

Johanna414 I had to force myself to finish this one. Everyone else seems to love it, but it bored me - and fairy tale retelling are usually my catnip 9mo
Booksbymybed @Johanna414 omg I am so glad I‘m not the only one! 🙏🏻 everyone does love it, but I just couldn‘t deal with all those POVs and bland storytelling 9mo

Dropping it. It didn‘t get good within 50 pages and I don‘t have time to suffer through more and see if it does. Shame, I was looking forward to this one.

Echo North | Joanna Ruth Meyer

Three chapters in. Another retelling of my favorite fairy tale “East of the Moon and West of the Sun”. Already spotted elements borrowed from Slavic tales and lifestyle, okay, we‘ll see how it‘ll work ( though felt boots and elaborately embroidered sarafan, my word, that‘s a silly look, there were other shoe options. Just saying.)

First read of 2019, really enjoyed it. Japanese culture really fascinates me and the traditions introduced here, though not all new to me were a lovely reminder how to make my life simpler, yet more beautiful.

Somehow I have never thought about how much did Margaret really offer Mr.Thornton beyond “a lot”. Turns out it was more like “holy sh#t that‘s A LOT” -nearly Qa,000,000 or $2,400,000 in today‘s money. That is love alright. This fun fact was brought to you by my insomnia?)

Hm, didn‘t like this one that much, I felt it was 250 pages longer than necessary, romance is lukewarm and Mare is nor likable enough for me to really care. Just read the premise for the third one, and I feel I should just drop the series.
