How has it been 2.5 years since I've posted here? Oy depression is a killer, but it hasn't taken me out yet. This pandemic has given me back my love of reading and for that I am thankful. The Vanished Queen is my plan for tomorrow, alternating between Kindle and Audible since I'll be cooking. Wishing you all the best, xoxo BrainyHeroine

Got. Damn. Do I love a stand alone debut fantasy. This was so captivating, original, demanding of my time and attention. So good!! And the narrators were perfect!

Cityofamber I didn‘t realize this was a stand alone, now I‘m more likely to try it sooner 😂 4y
BrainyHeroine @Cityofamber that's what pushed it over for me as well. I hate getting tuck on a series after 1 book lol! 4y

@theladygreer knocks it out if the park again!! Brilliantly researched, engaging, and narrated to perfection (I did the audiobook) Woman 99 is a historical hit!

theladygreer Oh how fab! Thanks for the great review. And I haven't listened to the audiobook yet, so I'm thrilled to hear good things! 4y
BrainyHeroine @theladygreer I also appreciated the representation of bipolar disorder in Phoebe's character. As a bipolar person, decent representation is hard to come by. 4y

Okay, I'm late AF to this series but it is wonderful and I have questions and how am I supposed to sleep because these are really good and ohmygawd do I want to google spoilers. This is one reason why I hate my kindle, it becomes to much hassle to read the last few pages first lol.

sammisho Freaking love this series! And lucky you, the series is complete! No waiting for a year in between! 4y
BrainyHeroine @sammisho not gonna lie, that's a HUGE part of why I waited so long. Lol 4y

Loved this book so much!!! Now where to shelve it? With my Frankenstein books or with my other books by the author? (This is a real question, I'm conflicted!!)

Karkar I vote with the other Frankenstein books. 🤓📚 4y
BookishGirl06 You couldn‘t combine the two with this one at end of the authors on side and Frankenstein on the other? 4y
BrainyHeroine @BookishGirl06 the other books by her are a trilogy, and are shelved with my series. So it would mean a lot of rearranging because I'm crazy lol 4y
BookishGirl06 @BrainyHeroine no problem. I would go with Frankenstein personally then. 4y

BrainyHeroine @tpixie that normally doesn't bug me. I rarely look things up when reading, though part of that may be because I read a lot of psycho murder thrillers and don't really wanna have the FBI knocking on my door lol 4y
