HELEN HOANG!!!!! 💖 omg! 🤗 Ok fangirling aside 🤣... I adored “the kiss quotient” so there was no way I was going to pass on this. The audiobook was amazing and the story kept me hooked. It was sweet & well written with a fresh storyline. I love the characters in this universe and I‘m definitely on board for the 3rd book!! ♥️🤗 4/5⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

There‘s a lot going on here lol: Dragons, Mages, sorcery etc. Just please be advised that it starts out quite SLOW. I went for this because I love Queendoms and dragons, but I almost feel that there wasn‘t enough about the dragons in the 800 pages. And most of the characters were a bit too “honorable” for me. But she built this world quite well especially the dragon riders and queens court! Great couples to ship also. ☺️
Overall ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 1/2

HOTPock3tt @Eggbeater my fave character was probably Onren the rule breaking dragon rider! But I also liked Sabran, Ead, Nayimathun & Kalyba ☺️ 2w

Ok 🤦🏽‍♀️ I fell for the hype for two reasons: 1) The obsession with Stevie Nicks from my teenage years that never actually went away. 2) I absolutely ADORED the Evelyn Hugo book and was hoping this would measure up: It did not. I didn‘t like any of the characters. The story felt lukewarm and I mostly finished it because I spent money on it. If it was a library book I would‘ve DNF. ⭐️ ⭐️/ 5
My comment below is what I REALLY didn‘t like. ⬇️

HOTPock3tt 1) Billy and Daisy‘s extreme SELFISHNESS 😡 I couldn‘t root for them. Especially not with a loyal wife and kids by his side. 2) Camilla stupidly staying with him even after she saw him with her own eyes having sex with another woman. And even after he fell in love with someone else. She was like a stupidly faithful lapdog. It was disgusting 🤮I was shocked a female author would write such horribly weak female characters 🤢 4w

Stardust | Neil Gaiman

Mehso-so

I think I may have tried a bit too hard to like this 😶 I adored his book on Norse Mythology, but I think I‘m just not the target audience for this 😪 I‘m not a huge fantasy reader and books set in faerie never really work for me. Nonetheless, the story and his descriptions were VERY creative and I see how others would love it. It just wasn‘t for me. I think I‘ll try out ‘Good Omens‘ next and see if I have more luck with that one. 😐

madamereadsalot1 I totally see how it isn't everyone's flavor. Especially if the fairy/high fantasy thing isn't a preferred genre. I hope you like Good Omens! That's one of my favorite Gaiman books! So funny. 1mo
Ingerella I think the same about Gaimen. I did love Ocean at the End of the Lane though. 1mo
Eggbeater Probably has my two favorite villains. If you listen to the audio, he narrates it himself and does a great job. 1mo

HOTPock3tt @Clare-Dragonfly @Michollio Thanks guys for letting me know ♥️☺️I do plan to check them out one of these days 🤗 1mo

HOTPock3tt @Clare-Dragonfly I also prefer to read in the order things were written (if the other book is written as a backstory for more information, then I‘ll get there as the author intended) thanks for pointing out the difference! ♥️🤗 (edited) 1mo

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty | Anne Rice, A. N. Roquelaure
post image
Mehso-so

Ok Anne Rice, I see you 😎lol. This started out really strong! Fairytale retelling with a HECK of a twist😉Very sexy, with 2 interesting/legendary main characters. Also, quite well done on audiobook. It was a “pick” until that.ENDING 😖I‘ve read erotica before and I‘m a long way from being a prude, but some of the ending was disturbing. So I rated it “so so”. But Rice is still a powerful storyteller and I will definitely be continuing the series.

HOTPock3tt I also got a bit tired of them talking about spanking all the time. I would have liked to see more aspects of BDSM explored!! ♥️ 1mo
sprainedbrain Hahahaha! I heard these are very ummmm.... intense. 😳 I will be reading these when I‘m done with the vampires. (edited) 1mo
BookNAround I found this whole series a bit boring and repetitive. 😜 1mo
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain lol! We gotta chat about these once we‘ve both finished them 😝 1mo

Lucy & Josh: Givin‘ love a bad name, Bon Jovi style lol! ♥️🤣 this was amazing on audiobook! I laughed out loud so many times, my husband actually started laughing at me!!! 😂 It does start out with lots of tropes/cliches and the story is a bit slow in the middle... but the beauty here is such fun, well developed characters, laugh out loud dialogue and meant for each other main characters. I was rooting for them the whole time 🤗

This book was very detailed with all the information I was missing. I‘ve been interested in Tudor history since I was in college, but I didn‘t know much about the Plantagenets.

Trigger warnings:
1) Misogyny
2) Racially biased descriptions (not as much as the misogyny but still there)

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I‘m not a big fan of the epilogue... and I was quite dismayed when JK Rowling said in an interview that she didn‘t think Ron and Hermione were right for each other 😨. I haven‘t reread it for so long - I really should! 3mo
HOTPock3tt @thegirlwiththelibrarybag It kind of seemed like she was trying to wrap it up in a way that made everyone happy: put the couples together, and show us how life is peaceful without Voldemort etc. I‘m kind of shocked she said that 😦 why put them together then lol there were other options of characters. I kind of was hoping Luna and Neville would get together 🤗 but that wasn‘t mentioned lol. 3mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @HOTPock3tt, I think she took the whole symmetry thing way too far with character arcs - and then Cursed Child is interesting- because a lot of the negative stuff repeats... idk - it‘s really been so long since I‘ve read it that I‘m now more familiar with the films. 3mo

2) Minerva Mcgonagall, Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood.
3) Definitely Umbridge, she was cringeworthy
4) Tie between the Goblet of Fire and the Sorcerers Stone.
5) Transfiguration, Charms and Defense Against the Dark Arts! Would also try to squeeze in Translating Ancient Runes (interesting!) and Divination by Trelawny (for laughs!)

Happy #BlackHistoryMonth Littens!! ♥️ I figured I‘d try out this author and she didn‘t disappoint!! The setting is futuristic, but features some of the age old problems of discrimination. Mostly it shows the main character coming of age, choosing her own path to college and taking control of her destiny. The author managed to convey so much in a short novella and it‘s quite an uplifting story. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

~Reluctant Royals!!!!~ ♥️🎉 Yes!! I really enjoyed this Novella. The entire series is mostly character driven and doesn‘t have a lot of steamy scenes, but it has a “modern fairy tale” vibe that is just irresistible. This one gives a bit of backstory on Likotsi‘s time in New York, and introduces one of my fave new characters Fabiola. It was sweet, romantic and you really get drawn into the characters‘ world. Can‘t wait for more in this series!! 🤗

HOTPock3tt Thanks so much @Liatrek for letting me know this was out and where to find it!!! ♥️It was so much fun! 4mo

Omg!! ♥️ I went thru every emotion on the journey of this book. It‘s so much deeper than it appears. I feel like its rare to read fiction that so accurately portrays the very true emotions in this book. Even discrimination. I related so closely with Evelyn and who she was as a person. It takes a few chapters to warm up, then I was completely captivated! Pretty sure I‘ll be crying over this for a while.

Lovesbooks87 Loved Evelyn as well! Still think about this book and I read it almost a year and a half ago! 💚💚💚 4mo
HOTPock3tt @Lovesbooks87 I can tell it‘s going to be one of those books for me as well. It was so memorable, so relatable and left such an impression on me that I KNOW I‘ll still be thinking about it for a very long time. 4mo

HOTPock3tt @Wife You did! 😥 it‘s still on my mind. I feel like I‘m on my way to a huge book hangover... I don‘t think another book has left such an impression on me since white oleander, the other one you suggested lol! But it was for different reasons.::: (edited) 4mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks One of my favorites!!! I love to see other people love this book! 💚💚💚 (edited) 4mo
HOTPock3tt @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks The first time I heard of this book was in one of your posts! You mentioned how amazing it was. Then @Wife managed to read it before me and told me it was wonderful, so I just HAD to check it out. I‘m really glad I did. It‘s literally one of my fave books as well. I will be purchasing a copy for re-reading! 🤗♥️ (edited) 4mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @HOTPock3tt I‘m so happy to know that!! ❤️❤️ I definitely want to read it again soon! I just love Evelyn 💚 If I come across a copy I will get it for you!! 😘 4mo

This was a pretty interesting audiobook... kept me listening straight thru till the end. Main character was a badass, I really liked her. Lots of positive messages against misogyny and against homophobia. At first I felt it was somewhat anticlimactic, but I liked the way the author wrapped things up.

I‘ve decided to do my first actual reading challenge this year 😅 (which I‘m a bit nervous about lol) so I signed up for the one on Goodreads. I really want to start keeping track of how many books I happen to read in a year... 🤔🤗

Bookladylinda Good luck! Don‘t be nervous, you can do this!!!! 5mo
HOTPock3tt @Bookladylinda THANKS!!! ♥️ I hope so! This is the first year I‘ve actually tried it lol. Thanks for the support!!! 🤗 5mo
LoverofLit I love using Goodreads to track my yearly reading goal. It's the easiest and most user friendly for sure! Best of luck with your goal this year! 5mo

HOTPock3tt @LoverofLit Thank you!!! ♥️ It does seem like a great way to keep track! Best of luck with yours as well 5mo
Schnoebs This is my first goodreads challenge too! I‘ve kept the names of books I‘ve read in a journal but I‘ve never really paid attention to the number I‘ve read in a year before! 5mo
HOTPock3tt @Schnoebs Oh it‘s pretty cool we‘re doing our first challenge in the same year! 🤗we can compare notes!!! I‘ve never actually tried to keep track of how many books I read, but since I know I read a lot last year (mostly due to suggestions from Litsy lol) I thought it would be cool to know the exact number!! 😎 5mo
Schnoebs Yes!! Encouragement will definitely keep us going! 5mo

This was going to be my #BOTM pick but I ended up skipping the month of January. I saw it on Scribd and decided to give it a try... it was just meh 😕 I mean, it kept me going till the end but nothing really exciting happens... and that ending knocked it down to a so-so. This might be an #UnpopularOpinion but overall this just wasn‘t memorable for me. ⭐️ ⭐️ 1/2

📚 X-men onslaught saga (comic books) which were actually very good!! My hubby and other hardcore fans were disappointed with them though...
👩🏽 I haven‘t read any 😐..
📺 X-men evolution (the fun cartoon version that was out some years ago! ☺️) X-men origins was ok too. 🍪 X-mas cookies/candies or any kind of cookies for that matter lol

Mehso-so

FINALLY complete. I have a very complicated relationship with this series 🤔 it‘s difficult to rate.
Pro‘s:
-The small amount of info there was about witchcraft was fun
-Wrapped up the series nicely
-Good message about equality
Con‘s:
-Too much about vampires, not enough about witches!
-Nasty/disturbing villain (I find a lot of villains still likeable, this one was just disgusting🤢)
-Too much history, reads like a research paper at times

Slajaunie I was kind of meh about the series. 5mo
HOTPock3tt @Slajaunie yeah, this series was definitely Meh 😕 5mo
