I think the author nailed the complexities of being a 29 year old caregiver. However the book plot was lacking. 😬😞

Memoirs are a hit or miss with me, but I want to get into to understand others perspectives. This was very well written and I liked it.

I‘m DNFing this. One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to book plots is when every problem could be solved by communicating, and that‘s what this book is. 🤷‍♀️

Megabooks Oh yes, one of the worst BOTM picks last year! 👎🏻👎🏻 2y
Cityofamber @Megabooks I looked up the ending and so glad I decided to stop instead of pushing through. 🤦‍♀️🙄 2y
Megabooks @Cityofamber oh yeah, it was really stupid. 🙄🙄🙄 2y

I really enjoyed this book. It was filled with all kinds of YA Fantasy tropes, but they were well done. And the world was great.

I do this weird thing about Colleen Hoover books where I am hesitant to read it and I don‘t know because I almost always love the book and the characters and they make me feel all the things. That was the case with this book.

I have no strong opinions on this one, it won‘t stop me from reading the others but I‘ll probably won‘t read them all and just read the ones from stories I really like. 🤷‍♀️

TheNerdyProfessor Is this YA or adult fiction? 2y
Cityofamber @TheNerdyProfessor both? It‘s dual POV a mom and her teen. It does have some mature content but nothing too descriptive. 2y

This trilogy could of easily been a duology because nothing happened in this book. It took me almost 2 weeks to read this short book because I had no motivation to pick it up.

I‘m disappointed with this, I loved the first 2 but this one was just ok. The narration (especially the beginning) was all over the place with several narrators and jumping around the timeline. It also lake the surprise factor found in the first 2 and had a lot of info dump. But by they end I was still interested in what was going on so that‘s something.

Lovesbooks87 Felt the same way! 2y
Cityofamber @Lovesbooks87 it made me so sad because I loved the first 2, and I was on sure a great streak of 5 ⭐️ books 😬😭 2y

This book was fun, but it was so cheesy (especially the romance) that it was funny- which probably wasn‘t the author‘s intention. 😂🤷‍♀️

I found this book to be repetitive and it felt way too much like Dark Matter (which I loved). Because of that I was bored and it lacked the element of surprise.

Four Dead Queens | Astrid Scholte

I liked this book but wish it focused on the fantasy aspects more (ie world building and political intrigue) and less on the murder mystery plot. Also the romance felt very insta lovey and I wasn‘t a fan of that. I guess you could say I wasn‘t a fan of the plots focused on Keralie which is a shame since she is the main character.

Final #BFC update:
Goals- 4 workouts a week- the only week I “failed” on this was last week due to a long bad migraine episode.
12 books total- I read 18 total. I‘m always unsure of number of books goals because I read a wide range of long books and short books so so I‘m thinking next time I‘ll set goals about getting through subscription books are specific books? 🤷‍♀️

wanderinglynn There‘s no failing in #BFC, especially if you were ill. (Migraines suck!) There‘s only progress—just that sometimes the progress is one step at a time. 😉 Way to go! 🙌🏻 A great 6 weeks. 2y
AprilMae No failing, only learning and self care! Great job with the progress!!! 2y
