Thanks @I_Like_Big_Books for tagging me for #wondrouswednesday 1. I have a ton of books, ebooks, Kindle books etc but I can only read them if I‘m in the right “mood” 2. No, I have motion sickness issues 3. Television series especially GoT 4. Starbucks and popcorn 5. And if you‘re interested @stresseddesserts @Wolverine551 @Traceelizaxox

I‘ve been reading this book during my lunch breaks at work. A YA fantasy set in an alternate London. This is a very imaginative fantasy adventure. Two teenage girls stumble from London into UnLondon , meeting a very eclectic mix of characters. I‘m not the target audience so the beginning was slow for me, but the adventure really picked up in the middle. I‘m wavering between a pick and a so-so. Its cool glossary and great imagery convinced m👍👍

The Cloudlibrary app is great for audiobooks , just finished listening to this historical #romantsy. It‘s the second book I‘ve read in the series ( although it‘s really the first one ). I‘m torn between a pick and a so-so. I didn‘t like the happy couple as much. There wasn‘t as much action and humour. A princess runs away from an arranged marriage and is rescued be a retired sea captain turned Earl.

As a teenager I read most of the Mills & Boon / Harlequin romances in the local library, so I have a soft spot for instalove and millionaires. This book reminds of those books but with a lot more 🔥. This is not great literature or particularly imaginative but it met my expectations and was an enjoyable escape. This won‘t be to everyone ‘s taste #romantsy

Thanks to The Cloudlibrary app I finished the second book in the series. I didn‘t like this one as much as the first. I really like the Jamie Watson character, but Charlotte Holmes and family were too much. I‘ll still read the third one. I‘m going to have to go with a so-so.

Read this one because it was a staff pick at the local Coles bookstore. I liked it well enough, but there was a bit too much emotional drama. A solid historical #romantsy but not a favourite.

I‘m giving this fast paced YA sci-fi novel a pick with a few reservations. Emika is an 18 year old bounty hunter/ hacker on the verge of eviction from her humble New York apartment. She glitches into the opening match in a massive computer game tournament. She catches the eye of the billionaire hottie who runs the company. He hires her to help track a hacker called Zero. There‘s some romance that reminds me of a Harlequin ,hence some reservations.

This was a roller coaster ride, totally #blameitonLitsy , I‘m not even sure how to categorize this book. Probably horror. Trigger ⚠️ warnings- bad things happen to children.

I went into this novel thinking it was YA fantasy but it‘s definitely adult fantasy. Trigger warning for violence and war time atrocities. Rin , a war Orphan, has one way out of her small village and arranged marriage, pass the national exams and win entrance to the most elite military academy in the country. RF Kuang has envisioned a densely detailed landscape based on modern Chinese history. Immersive and fascinating two thumbs up 👍👍
