“Knowledge is dangerous.”
I went it to this one knowing absolutely nothing about it!

It was unexpectedly different.
The story, the characters and the way it is told!
It made me laugh and it made me cry...
In the end I was so mad I wanted to kill a few characters myself.

Jeralyn Such a great book!!! 16h

I've decided to re-read the first three books ofThe Mortal Instruments, after reading and LOVING The Infernal Devices.
In all honesty I can't remember this book at all.
I'm starting to wonder if I only read until I knew about Jace and Clary and then just stoped...
Becuase this was good!
It had that gripping "Clare" quality to it that I came to know and love in The Infernal Devices.
Review continue ?

Enchanted_Bibliophile The character development was awesome in this book - it's like everyone grew-up.
I'm really psyched to continue this series now.
So glad I decided to re-read these books

This was horifically discusting!!!

I don't get why poeple think HORROR is linked to creepy, revolting, repellent, repulsive and sickening Sex.
I've read brillinat Horrors without any sex in them.
So this to me was a total wast of good reading time!

Books like this make me want to give up my NO DNF Policy!

Enchanted_Bibliophile @StayCurious I really, really enjoy them! The art is magnificent and the story takes you places you'll never guess. But this is only my second comic series, so I'm not an expert. 3w

“When you possess great treasures within you and try to tell others of them, seldom are you believed.“

Have I read this book three years earlier it would have made a bigger inpact on me. But today it doesn't quite hit the right heart strings.
Today I know I am one of those people whom have found that great treasure - even if people seldom believe me when I tell them.

rretzler Glad to know I am not alone in my ambivalence for this book. 4w

Pieces of Her | Karin Slaughter
post image
Pickpick

Every time Slaughter doesn't write about Will Trent I'm afraid to read the book... Every time I end up reading and loving it.
Pieces of Her is way different than what I have come to expect of Karin Slaughter; but it still have her gripping page-turning style and nail-biting suspense.
This one is a bit less blood and gore than the usual, but it still kept me reading the whole day and way into the night.

Moss has no roots.

I'm not the Romance / Contemporary kind of person. But this was a really heart warming read. I love that it is shaped around this romantic flower language; but still touch the soul with love, forgiveness and family.
Truly something different.

I've decided to re-read the first three books of The Mortal Instruments. After reading and LOVING The Infernal Devices I decided to give these books one more chance.

After this re-reading, I've come to realize that this book is not as bad as I remember.
-That is if I ignore the Jace / Clary saga -
It is fast paced and full of action; and when you know what it all amounts to it is a pretty good addition to the series.

Absolutely Magical!
After reading Strange the Dreamer last year, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Muse of Nightmares; but as life goes...
Only reading it now just made me remember why I wanted the next book so badly.
Laini Taylor just have a way to enchant!
With writing as captivate, delightful, and dazzling as hers it's hard to put the book down.

Review cont... 👌

Enchanted_Bibliophile The direction of this book caught me by surprise; I did not see this coming!
I was expecting more or less that Lazol and Sarai's story would continue to some kind of “happy ever after“ or even a not so happy ever after“; but what Taylor did to it was an absolute masterpiece.
It is astonishing how in both books she surprised me in such different ways!

The Daughter of Smoke & Bone Series is already in my next cart...

Strange the Dreamer | Laini Taylor
post image
Pickpick

This is one of the most romantic books I've read in a long time, not romantic in the sense of "love story romance"; but romantic in lushes writing and awe-inspiring story telling.
This is my first introduction to Laini Taylor and though I've heard a lot about her Daughter of Smoke & Bone Series, I've never acquire them. That will obviously changed!

Continue in comments:?

Enchanted_Bibliophile Laini just speaks to your soul, she opens your eyes to a world so vivid, so incredibly real you walk into it as you walk into a well beloved dream. Her imagination sets a light the second heart you never knew you possessed. Orphaned Librarians and half-human children of murdered gods becomes your dearest friends, you live and dream in their worlds.
I'm still amazed at how this story played out and how incredibly involved I was in all of it.

Refreshingly different!

I love it when authors go off the usual plot trends and shock me into new dimensions!
This is exactly what Lisa Jewell did; she made this book so divergent and controversial that I couldn't help but LOVE it.

Looking forward to reading more of here books

I'm not even sure where to start.

This entry book was just too much. The writing was amateurish and the plot was just a bit to convenient. And the characters where just plain stupid.

If it wasn't for my resoluteness to finish each book before giving my opinion I would not have finished it at all.

This is the first book in more than a month that I actually finished. Hopefully this awful reading slump is letting me go now.

In all honesty I don't known what I'm thinking or feeling on this one.

Other parts drove me insane, totally insane.

Maybe a re-read is required before I make my final decision.

This was different.
I can't say I'm an expert on historical fiction as it's a genre I very rarely read.
But I can tell you I never wanted a band to exist this badly before; I want to hear the music that made people do all this crazy beautiful things. I need to feel the music that threatened to tore apart and mend so many.
I think listing to the audio book with the full cast made it so much more.

JenlovesJT47 I finished it a couple of days ago and I keep finding myself thinking about their songs and wishing I could download them on Spotify! Can‘t wait for the series to come out! ❤️ 3mo
Enchanted_Bibliophile @JenlovesJT47 I know, I'm also excited for the series. I hope they add some of the songs in. 3mo

I really enjoyed this one.

I saw in some of the other reviews that this isn't even one of Dekker's best.
So I will most definitely be on the lock-out for more of his books.

This was a bit of a struggle to me, the pacing was a bit off, and the overall experience of this book kind of took away the awe at the revelation part.
I felt totally drained; and by the part that should have mattered I just didn't care anymore and just wanted everything to end already.

Hundred pages in I discovered that I was reading the 8th book of a series. But by then it was already to late.
I was caught in Montanari's Web and just couldn't put the book down.

I will most definitely go find and read all his other published work. I discovered a new favorite.

Prime Suspect | Lynda La Plante

Mehso-so


This being my first La Plante read, and only ever hearing that Prime Suspect is an excellent TV series, I thought why not, and got the three books at a great price.

While entertaining enough, the adaptation from TV series is very prominent; is more like the description of a picture than painting a picture with words.
A bit of a let-down, but I will read the other books at a later stage.

I've decided to re-read The Mortal Instruments. After reading and LOVING The Infernal Devices I decided to give these books one more chance. I must say, reading it the second time knowing a lot more about the world and what was and what will be, this was not so bad. Clary was still annoying & Jace is still a spoiled brat.
This time I'm really gonna try reading all the books and not stop after book three - I hear they get better.

Even though there is profound ideas and processes for living these ideas in this book, I found the writing tedious and had to push myself to finish it.
