Ninth House | Leigh Bardugo

Pickpick

Another book that took me about halfway through to get into it. Not as good as Six of Crows, but ended up as a pick and will read the next in the series.

Gideon the Ninth | Tamsyn Muir
post image
Pickpick

This ended up being a good story but it did take me halfway through the book before I started to get into it. I loved the MC but the world building was confusing and unnecessarily so, but by the end I was invested in Gideon. Twisty ending that I didn't see coming. Will definitely read the next one.

The Reckless Oath We Made | Bryn Greenwood
post image
Pickpick

Bryn Greenwood is a definite go to author for me now. This book hooked me from the start. I fell in love with Gentry. And even though the MC made bad decisions that annoyed me I was still rooting for it to all work out. This isn't quite as good as her other book All the Ugly and Wonderful Things, but still a definite pick.

Enjoying this read. I'm only a quarter of the way through so I'm not sure if it compares to All the Ugly and Wonderful Things yet, but Bryn Greenwood is fast becoming a go to author.

Just as good as Dark Matter. I couldn't put this book down. Of course a bunch of it went over my head like Dark Matter but I managed to get enough sense of it to love it.

Cathythoughts Is a stand alone ? Or would you need to read Dark Matter first ? 🤔 3mo
Lisaw13 @Cathythoughts it's definitely a stand alone - his style is just the same in the two books 3mo

Got my two books read for this week and managed to walk every day except one (due to birthday shenanigans and exhaustion) - but still counting it as a win especially since I had a guest this week.

Accomplished!

Walked every day for 30 mins except one day that was raining so I did yoga that day instead. These are the two books I read this week. Thanks for inspiring me @wanderinglynn!

wanderinglynn Fantastic week! 🙌 And great job adapting on the rainy day. That's awesome that you didn't let the rain slow you down. Plus, excellent book choice—I love the Mercy Thompson series. (I haven't yet read the other one.) 4mo

This isn't normally something I would pick up but my book club suggested it, and I'm glad they did. Beautiful writing that made me feel like I knew the marsh that Kya grew up in. I loved the main character and ached for her. The book also speaks to society and how we treat each other. There's also a touch of murder mystery. A lovely book that I would definitely recommend.

SarahHarts_books I have been wanting to read this for so long!! I have it on hold at my library. So I'm trying to wait patiently. But I REALLY want to read it already!! Everyone who has read it seems to love it. I can't wait until it's my turn!! 😊 5mo
