🌟🌟🌟🌟

Play format so I flew through this within a day. Was nice to read about familiar and beloved characters from my childhood. Only major complaint was that Ron after developing so much became one dimensional in this. He deserves better.

#January #wrapup since I probably won't finish any of my chunky current reads by Monday. @TheAromaofBooks I will use my same list for February, but replace #14 with House of Sky and Breath. Post will be up in an hour or so.

📚Read
#14 - Lady killers by Tori Teller - 03 Jan (3 stars)
FREE #21 - Furyborn by Claire Legrand - 11 Jan (4 stars)

Full reviews on my #goodreads

CloakNQuill I do wish Furyborn was talked about much more. Its dark has elemental magic and saints. I picked it up on a whim and have absolutely no regrets whatsoever. (edited) 4mo

3.75 🌟

“Will you step back and cover your eyes? Or will you have the strength to walk to the precipice and look out?”

Dark. Intense. Gripping. I could go on. Although there were times it felt extremely drawn out. I highly recommend. Beautifully done multimedia with a mysterious mind bending investigation for the truth behind a famous film directors daughter.

4 stars 🌟

One of those graphic novels where I wish there was so much more! Sorcery, murder, seduction, betrayal. Apparently based on a story in Celtic mythology. Artwork was pretty good: not overly vivid but also goes above being super simplistic.

3 🌟

“The single most important thing you will do is to remember that it is your power, your control that opens and closes this curtain to the beyond”.

A perfect October read for paranormal fans! Page turning dual timeline read that plummets the reader into a bone chilling asylum's atmosphere. I wish it was more on the gore side personally. Katie grew on me slightly but no wow factor.

“…the hardest truths never rest on the surface…”

Very quick read! I‘ve read multiple dual timelines before and this one is a bit more memorable compared to the rest. I think I stuck around for the facts on herbalism until my gravitation towards Eliza grew. Caroline & James story felt a bit blander. Still a good read.

“Pain equals clarity. Clarity equals survival.”

A bit of predictability on seeing certain reoccurring themes but fantastic read nonetheless. May even go a step further in saying I enjoyed this more than Home Before Dark. Jules wasn‘t the most fascinating but her history definitely adds more unresolved mystery. Gave me Rosemary‘s Baby vibes.

Another Riley Sager book added to the read pile 📚

Noise Downstairs | Linwood Barclay

3.5 ⭐️

Pauls normal life breaks down after facing a murderer. Missing memories, an old typewriter and messages from the dead send him into a spiraling voyage.

The humor was too dry for my liking but the suspense kept me around. Most of the twist and turns I saw coming especially when it came to a certain female character. I still enjoyed the journey and would love to read more of Barclay‘s work.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Space 6 (library/audio)
#bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks

Now usually a book involving Fae characters isn‘t my thing, but this was worth the hype. Feyre‘s internal characteristics are very relatable. I can‘t resist an enemies to lovers but the book was such a tease 60%! The last 1/3 has to be my favorite. So much suspense and build up! Heading out to pick up the second atm.

Happy sun drenched Tuesday!🌞Since this is a huge interest of mine, I like the way Douglas explains each variable of how certain identities/characteristics are shown in a criminal profile. I pause in between to see if I can come up with a profile then read on to compare to Douglas & the actual UNSUB. At the same time, Douglas doesn‘t stray from acknowledging the victims & emotions that come with the job.

Space 1 - GOT - Bran (160)

I got so wrapped up in the story I forgot to post! Loving this journey so far. Feel that the series is going to hurt me in so many ways. I‘ll leave some spoilers in the comments.

CloakNQuill Will say I love these almost romanticism style excerpts that GRRM pops in. The first 80 pages were tough to get through and its been an incredible ride since. 11mo
CloakNQuill 💀 SPOILER 💀
Like why?!?! I didn't want either wolf to die. If more are killed idk if I can handle that. 1) It wasn't even Lady who did it. 2) It was for protection! KFGShdsglds. The frustration is real. Bran being shoved I knew about from the tv series. I stopped watching after the red wedding so much I dont remember. Sansa better get her brain in check and see Joffrey for who he really is.

Absolutely loved this! A coming of age/horror story about a boy named Jamie who can see & talk to dead people shortly after they have passed. Mysterious, entertaining, ups & downs galore in a nice size. I was so wrapped up in other elements that the last shocker slapped me across the face. Highly recommend!
