I really enjoyed this story and felt the same magical coming of age story as The Secret Garden. Sarah Crewe is such a wonderful symbol of strength and kindness. Even as she is thinks she has lost everything and is made into a maid, she perseveres over the abusive power and never loses her childhood imagination and hope. For her to continue to give to others, even has she has so little herself, is such a beautiful show of genuine humanity.

Catherine_Willoughby My favourite story. First Lady bird book given for maths achievement in school. Still have it 30 years later ! 10mo

Did I Mention I Love You? | Estelle Maskame

⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was just okay for me. I liked the storyline of the forbidden romance with the mystery of Tyler‘s past. Tyler is who kept me engaged in the story to find out his story. Unfortunately the story was slow, which makes me wonder about the next 2 books in the series. I also didn‘t like Eden‘s views on her body image. It just felt unnecessary. I felt like every teenage issue was tried to be pushed into the story and was a bit overkill.

Swoon! I loved this story just as much as the Netflix show but in its own right. The scandal, stolen glances, and the devotions of love. Every minute was amazing! Now I need to watch the show again 😉 #doublespin #bookspinbingo

Squeezed this one in last night.

4 ⭐️ I really enjoyed the fresh twist on Romeo and Juliette! Rekindling of forbidden first love, ruthless gangs, monsters and madness. The only thing stopping me from giving 5 stars is that the story started out slow and felt a bit drawn out, but ended amazingly. Now looking back I can understand why the beginning was slow with how in-depth the world was created and the different POVs. #doublespin #bookspinbingo

Absolutely amazing! I love a story that has me so emotionally invested. I enjoyed following both Selina and Alice‘s stories. Both timelines were engaging and beautifully written. All of the characters were perfect. The world was so well captured that I felt apart of the story.

I enjoyed this one. I really liked how the story came together and how everyone connected. I didn‘t like how the beginning seemed to be completely different stories from the different times until they started to connect. I‘m glad I didn‘t give up on the book because of the disconnect in the beginning.

This conclusion was everything I had hoped it would be. It was action filled with steamy moments. I loved how just when I thought I had the ending figured out, a twist appeared and blew me away with an OMG ending. I can‘t wait to read more in this world that the author created.

Chelsey_5 @Mrs_B this is the last is the Hades trials trilogy. However the author has others within the Olympus world with other Gods as the main the characters. Also all the covers are swoon worthy ☺️ 13mo

Just Amazing!! This was so raw, powerful, and thought provoking. Dita‘s story was told in such an authentic and heartbreaking way that was full of emotions, harsh truths, and incredibly captivating. In addition to the holocaust setting, there was an air of innocence that reflects on the things I feel we take for granted everyday. Overall a beautifully written story. November 1/20 #bookspinbingo

Finished #teamharkness buddy read last night.

This deserves so many more stars than just five. This story was set up so well and the character development was awesome. If the other books in the series are as good as this first one, then this will definitely be added to my favorite series list with Matthew Clairmont on my ever growing book boyfriend list. This fed my twilight craving as an adult.

4.5 stars. I‘m loving reading through Jane Austen‘s novels. Northanger Abby was a very enjoyable. I absolutely love Catherine and her view of the world and life. I only didn‘t give it a 5 because I was waiting for more, especially with Henry at the end. I feel their reunion was rushed and can we please get an Austen wedding.

Holy Moley!! That was steamy! And that ending!! Adair had me drawn in from the beginning. The story was new and fresh with lots of steamy moments. Jax and Natalie are drawn to each other in a way that you can‘t help but root for them. Overall very thought provoking and engaging for the reader.

The author, Sofia Adair, provided me with a free copy for an honest review.

I feel exhausted after finishing this first one in the series. The beginning was intriguing, the middle began to lose me, and the ending pulled me back in. I enjoyed following the characters on each of their journeys but at times it got really wordy. Not sure if I‘m going to read on yet. On one hand I want to know what happens but on the other, I‘m not sure I want to tackle another massive book. October 5/20

I was very intrigued with this book made entirely of lists and the synopsis seemed interesting. However, the story did not meet my expectations. 90% of Dan‘s lists were pointless. The lists got really old quick and just turned irritating. Dan as a character was a spineless idiot, who I just hate. ⬇️

Chelsey_5 Cont.- Bill was the only good thing. I want a Bill. I actually almost DNF‘d this one but stuck with it in hopes something would happen that would intrigue me. But again it fell flat. October 3/20 #bookspinbingo #teamharkness #scarathon (edited) 14mo

I love historical fictions, but unfortunately this one fell flat for me. I actually almost DNF‘d it but decided to stick with it since it‘s my #bookspin . I was expecting spies, espionage, and romance. Though there was some romance, it was uneventful and frankly irritating. Rosalind was suppose to be this big scientist, but her skills were never utilized. This story had so much potential, I‘m saddened by the let down. Sept 16/20 #bookspinbingo
