An amazing read! Loosely based upon beauty and the beast this is the first book in a fantastic series. A Court of Thorns and Roses introduces you to a fantastic world of magic and fae created by one of my favourite authors and I found it just as enjoyable reading it the second time.
⭐⭐⭐⭐

I think it's safe to say that Adelina Amouteru is one of the #badgirls.

I loved this book. Adelina Amouteru isn't a heroic character she makes mistakes and feeds on the darkness and bitterness around her and within her. Yet, in spite of Adelina's dark soul, I found myself sympathetic towards her. A well-written book with a great plot line and brilliant characters.
⭐⭐⭐⭐

I'm really behind on #augustgrrrl so here's #independentwomen
Anyone who's read these books knows that their main characters are very #independent. Aelin Galathynius strikes fear in the hearts of her enemies and Anita Blake kills vampires even though she's 5'3".

Although this book was short I found it to be a brilliant read. It tells the story of a young girl, Marianne, who, in the wake of her mother's death, travels alone to Denmark to try and find the father who doesn't even know she exists. But what will she find when she reaches Skagen, the place her father is supposed to be?
A great book which shows how Marianne grows as a person and discovers friendship.

It's a little late but this is what came to mind when I saw the #wildestdreams prompt for #augustgrrrl. Ronan can bring things from his dreams back to reality but is he the only one with this ability and are there consequences?
@Cinfhen

Cinfhen Excellent choice! And you're never late to my party 🎉 😊 2y

I loved this. Brilliantly written with an interesting storyline which is oddly topical considering it was written in 1985.

I'm ridiculously far behind on #riotgrams so I have a lot of posting to do in the next few days. Here's my #childhoodread

As you can tell from the tagged book and the amount of them in the picture Famous Five books were a big part of my childhood. I also loved hearing the poems in If You See A Fairy Ring. But when I was young my favourite story was Little Lion and the Thunderstorm.

I had to choose Night World for #welllovedreads, I read it so much in primary school it split in two.

I forgot to post this yesterday so...
Here's my day 6 of #riotgrams
These are some of the #numbertitles I have on my bookshelves.
When I read the prompt I knew I wouldn't be able to resist using one of the Famous Five books but the others are great too.

Day 3 of #riotgrams
So this is my #howyouread
I love to read in bed and I read on just about anything hardbacks, paperbacks, my Kindle - though perhaps I read on that a bit too much looking at the battery - as long as it's a good book I'm game.

I've been looking for a copy of this for ages and I finally found one when shopping with @Embellembell in a used book store today. I can't wait to read it.

Loved this! It's even better than the first book! I don't know how Sarah J. Maas manages to tie up all the loose ends and then still end on a #cliffhanger. Strongly recommend.

What just happened? Seriously, what just happened? And why did I read this before the next one came out? I need to know what happens next. Such a good book but I'm going to die waiting for the next one. How could the author end it there?

Sinner | Maggie Stiefvater

Pickpick

Before I started reading I was a bit worried that Sinner would let down the Shiver trilogy but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a wonderful continuation of the Shiver series that focussed on two of my favourite characters, Cole and Isabel. Rather than being caught up in the werewolf side Maggie Stiefvater focussed on the characters. I strongly recommend it

MrBook Cool cover! And nice review! And welcome to @Litsy ! We hope you enjoy your stay. 😊👍🏻 3y
