Finale (Caraval, #3) | Stephanie Garber

Finished this one today! So magical. Stephanie Garber‘s writing is so lyrical and imaginative... serious #goals

Legendary | Stephanie Garber
post image

Any Stephanie Garber fans out there? I hadn‘t read Legendary so I figured it was time now that Finale is almost here! I ended up liking it even more than Caraval, I think! Tella really annoyed me in book 1 but I loved her in book 2. Plus the whole new plot about the fates was really interesting! Are you guys looking forward to Finale next week?

BookHoarder32 I also still need to read Legendary 🤦‍♀️ 7mo
MidnightBookGirl Love this series! I was lucky enough to read the arc of Finale and loved it! 7mo

Any fans of reverse harem romance out there? My newest series is a Celtic Arthurian legend retelling where Gwenevere is a fierce Irish warrior princess and falls for not just Arthur and Lancelot, but Galahad and Percival too! This series was a blast to write...definitely check it out if you like historical or fantasy romance but want to try something a little different!

Chrissyreadit I‘ve never heard the term reverse harem before. 7mo
MeganAnn Sounds interesting! I fell into the reverse harem genre sort of by accident after reading C.L. Stone‘s academy series and have been hooked ever since! @Chrissyreadit Reverse harem is a book where one woman falls for more than one man and they are all in a relationship together (I.e. like a traditional harem where a man is in a relationship with several woman at once, but the reverse part is the harem is made up of men with one woman) 7mo
Chrissyreadit @MeganAnn thank you! 7mo

Claireluana @MeganAnn nice! I‘ll have to check out that series! 7mo
Claireluana @Chrissyreadit yes reverse harem is pretty different from a traditional romance but there are some fantastic books out there! 7mo
MeganAnn @Claireluana it starts off slow, but I was completely enamored with the characters and their story. I binge read the entire series finishing an ebook a day and am anxiously waiting for the next book. She also has a second series (The Academy: Scarab Beetle series) with slightly older characters that tie in with the first series which I also loved. Book one of the academy:ghost bird series is 7mo
Claireluana @meganann cool! Sounds really good! 7mo

I‘ve been in a bit of a reading slump the last few months. I‘ve been writing and editing so much that I don‘t have much interest in reading at the end of the day, which is super rare for me! But I‘ve heard such amazing things about this one, I thought it‘d be a good one to dive into and see if I can break out of my funk!

One of my 2018 goals is to make peace with my busy brain. We live with ourselves every day but have so little real understanding of why we think or feel or act the way we do (or how to change it). This book was an awesome start to this journey!

If you like mysteries this will be a fun read for you! It's a mystery within a mystery, as the main character editor reads a mostly full manuscript, then the author dies and the final chapters are missing, prompting her to investigate his death. Very clever, I enjoyed it!

This book was lovely in a lot of ways, and as a Seattle-ite I enjoyed the setting. I think magical realism just isn't my cup of tea though. It feels like too much telling versus showing. Thanks to @elkeo for sending me the book though!!!

elkeo_TheBookDragon Interesting - magical realism usually annoys me, yet I loved this! We may just need to chat it out when we bump into each other next week 😁 2y

This book lives up to all its hype. I've never read anything that helped me connect and empathize with the black experience in the US like this did. My understanding is deepened. The audiobook was fabulous as well! Should be required reading in this political climate.

This was a really valuable read. Not easy, pretty heartbreaking reading about the horrible pollution in Louisiana and frustrating how much Tea Party voters vote against their own interest, but valuable nonetheless.

All the Crooked Saints | Maggie Stiefvater

This book surprised me. It was not like Maggie's other books. It was an exponential curve of pacing and my enjoyment. The beginning felt overwritten, too self-aware, the magical realism almost forced and distracting. But I kept at it and began to fall in love with the characters, the complexity yet simplicity of the message the book conveys. By the end I was smitten. Huh.

This book defies my normal reading stereotypes but I loved it anyway. Dont normally read historical, don't normally like political books, it's kinda slow paced, but it's just so amazingly well told and the characters are exceptional. Just, impressive. Can't wait for the third!
