New book feels ✨🍓

Georgina‘s life isn‘t going as she planned. From being fired from her shitty job and being cheated on, it‘s looking grim. Until an old flame from high school enters the picture. Will they reconnect , and will she finally get her Prince Charming ?

I‘m loving it so far!

I read the book last year and found it okay, but I started the show and I‘m absolutely hooked !! 😱

Is anyone else watching this? What‘s your thoughts? #BookToScreen #Binge #WeekendPlans

Lovesbooks87 Love this show. Scares the crap out of me most of the time but I can't get enough of it! 1w
Curiouser_and_curiouser The book gave lots of ideas but left lots open to imagination. This series has brought all that to life and more. I'm loving it too, I've almost completed the first season. I watched the first 7 eps in one evening! I'm also reading Brave New World again, as I am on this genre's trail atm. Good luck!! 1w
KirstieE @Lovesbooks87 me too!! @Curiouser_and_curiouser I‘m legit watching like 5-6 episodes a day at this point, I can‘t stop 😫😫 I think they‘re doing a good job exploring the story line ! 1w
GrilledCheeseSamurai Love the show! Haven't watched any of the new season yet - I'm letting it go for a bit so I can binge. 👍 4d

BooknerdsLife I love this one 😍 This one and her Six of Crows duology are my favourite 💖 2w
zezeki I have this book, but I haven't read anything from Grishaverse. Do I first need to read other books in order to understand this one, or I can just start with it? 2w

Shley9225 The Witch of Duva, in addition to the two you mentioned, were my favourites in the collection :D 2w
Shley9225 @zezeki I would say that you could read this before reading anything else in the Grishaverse. I found them to stand on their own very well. However, at the same time, the Grishaverse is the best series ever, so really, you should just read the rest of them anyways 2w
zezeki @Shley9225 It's on my TBR, I plan to get to it, eventyually.😅 Thanks for the info 😀 2w
KirstieE @BooknerdsLife same !!! @zezeki @Shley9225 I agree, you can read this at anytime. Although some terms and places may make more sense if you read shadow series first ☺️ 2w
Shley9225 @KirstieE or Six of Crows. I‘ve heard the heist is another very accessible entry point if it‘s more to your tastes 2w
