Well that was fun. Definitely falling in love with some of the characters.

Heir of Fire | Sarah J Maas

Her books start off a little slow but by the end I couldn‘t put it down. Like the ACOTAR series, I love the side characters so much.

Slajaunie Love this series as well! 13mo

This book picked op the pace and now that it‘s over I need to know more. I need to know what‘s going to happen. Sarah J Maas is skilled at giving you just enough info and then turning it sideways so you never really know what‘s going on until the end.

Throne of Glass | Sarah J. Maas

This wasn‘t a great book but it wasn‘t a terrible book. Parts were interesting and some parts not so interesting. I‘ll keep reading the series because I‘m a completionist at heart.

I really enjoyed this book. I felt transported back in time. It was funny, spooky, atmospheric and definitely had me on the edge of my seat. It still does.

Shiver | Maggie Stiefvater

It took two tries to get going but by the end I found myself enjoying it. Yeah it got weird at the end but overall it was a sweet book. Now I gotta read the second book to see what happens.

Dividing Eden | Joelle Charbonneau

This is one of those books that is "just fine." Carys is an interesting character and by the end of the book I got really curious as to where the 2nd books is gonna go. Her brother was not as solid a character.

I flew through this in two days. I fell in love with Michael and Stella almost immediately! Such a wonderfully sweet and romantic book.

Once I got everyone sorted out I really it. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Scourged | KEVIN. HEARNE

Such a bittersweet ending to one of my all time favorite series and I am okay with that. In a lot of ways it was a perfect ending. I'm gonna miss Atticus and Oberon.

Well that was anti-climactic. This never really got its feet under it. I didn't feel like I knew the characters at all. The ending was abrupt. Frankly my favorite character is the main's best friend. She had much more of a personality.

There were parts I enjoyed but in the end I feel like there was so subtlety. While I appreciated the message I felt like I had been hit over the head with it.

While it was good, i didn't adore it like so many people do. For whatever reason I'm not super connected to the characters. We'll see what book 3 brings.

What a wonderful book. It was great to revisit characters from Furthermore but even better to be introduced to the enigmatic Laylee Layla Fenjoon.

I've read so many rare reviews that I was surprised to not enjoy this book. I just didn't connect with the stories or characters.

I wanted to read this before the movie comes out next year. Not only did I read it, I read it in about two days on my phone. It was so good, so sweet, so earnest, just so wonderful.

When Dimple Met Rishi | Sandhya Menon
Pickpick

This is a sweet book, pure and simple. Yes there are some cliches and it's often easy to figure out what's gonna happen but that is overshadowed by the heart of the story: Dimple and Rishi. It was the perfect book to finish the year with.

A Plague of Giants | Kevin Hearne

It took a while to get settled in this book since all I've ever read of Kevin Hearne is the Iron Druid series. Once you get going though it's very immersive. The story is told in a very creative way with intriguing characters.

"The mourning of a loved one never ends at the funeral. It comes back every so often like a stage performer eager for a curtain call and expects you to be loud about it."

"'Do you wish to talk or simply be warm and welcome? I will give what comfort I can.'"

There's just something so wonderful reading a mystery from an Irish Wolfhound's point of view involving one of my favorite characters:Atticus. Another joyful book.

A Plague of Giants | Kevin Hearne

So I'm about 1/4 of the way through and I'll be honest, it was a slow start. The style takes some getting used to. At the point I feel like I have a good sense of the characters and the story is starting to pick up. I'm super curious where it's gonna take me.

This small collection of Grisha fairy tales is both beautiful and haunting, familiar and utterly unlike anything you've ever read. And then there are the illustrations: gorgeous additions to each story.

I get so nervous for the characters that I have to put the book down. Then of course I pick it back up again because I am so invested in the story. I would be heartbroken if something happens to one of the core characters.

The end of the book took me on a roller coaster ride that I was not prepared for. It was so good. I actually put off reading the last couple chapters because I was scared for some characters and because I didn't want it to end.

Hey Haven't read that series yet, but is it better than Throne of Glass? 2y
KimSG I haven't read Throne of Glass yet. It's next. 2y
Hey ITS LIKE PRETTY GOOD, but sometimes the plot can get kinda over used, still totally worth it though. 2y
KimSG You should definitely try A Court of Thorns and Roses. 2y

A Court of Mist and Fury | Sarah J. Maas

So at the school I work the students have 20 minutes of silent sustained reading in between 2nd and 3rd periods. I often read during that time too. Today I read the infamous chapter 55...

Alfoster Love that! We used to do SSR (silent sustained reading) at the school where I taught as well...until the numbers reached 40+ in a class and it was impossible to monitor😢😢😢! 2y
KimSG @Alfoster the school is a tiny private school for 3rd -8th graders with learning disabilities. We have 53 middle schoolers and only 10-12 kids per class. Getting them to read is a chore. 2y
Alfoster I get it! But once they are used to the routine--how great! Class size awesome (but not without your challenges I'm sure)! 2y

Well that was a weird book and definitely not what I expected. It doesn't help that Vonnegut's writing is herky-jerky. I know a lot of people love it but I will not be recommending it.

Where do I even begin? This book is funny, emotional, sad, poignant and beautiful. You fall in love with Ari and Dante almost immediately and you get so invested in their journeys. The payoff is totally worth it!

About 1/3 of the way through and I'm pretty sure this book just broke me. I don't want to keep reading but I do because I already love these boys so much. This book is going to break me, isn't it?

Mariposa_Bookworm Yes, but you'll love it. 2y
