This book was definitely interesting. Not enjoyable per say, but a fascinating look at the psychology of war and battle.

Mehso-so

The beginning was strong but I didn't like the ending, it felt like I got to the end and nothing was resolved. What was the point of the story? It was a creative setting and some parts were really exciting, but overall my feeling is Meh.

Meh. Definitely didn't live up to all the hype. Trope-y YA fantasy that was fairly predictable and boring. Skimmed the last 3rd of the book, won't be reading the sequel.

Cityofamber Oh no! This is on my TBR! 😬😔 3y

Peace Like a River | Leif Enger

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the narrative voice is one of the best I've ever read. It felt unique with some elements of a western and gentle spirituality that doesn't feel heavy-handed like so much "inspirational fiction" is. I'll be recommending it to a lot of people I know.

I've heard so many great things about this book and almost 100 pages in it's definitely living up to the hype. Plus the cover art is beautiful.

I loved this book, maybe even a little more than I loved Six of Crows. Also kind of nice to have a story tied up in 2 books rather than 3 or 5 or a never-ending series.

This book was fascinating and portrayed historical figures as actual people rather than the one-dimensional characters in a history textbook. Recommended to anyone who wants to know about the Revolution.

I really enjoyed this latest addition to the series, though I think Queen of Shadows is still my favorite. This one was very good, but it got a little bogged down in the middle. The end sequence was amazing. Looking forward to the next one.

I'm abandoning this one. It's not bad necessarily, just not holding my attention. I have too many other books I want to read and I don't want to spend more time on one I'm not enjoying.

Made it halfway through and just couldn't continue. No character development or plot, just scene after scene of contrived, juvenile sensuality. Disappointing because I'm really enjoying The Throne of Glass series.

I'm sticking with it because the fantasy world is interesting by so far all I feel about Feyre, Tamlin and Lucien is that I want to punch them all in the face. 😡

GetFictional Lol - I'm feeling the same way. Feyre is so annoying! 3y
LittleMountainLibrary Yeah, I ended up bailing halfway through. 3y

I loved this book so much. I'm a horse person so that may bias my view but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Also liked that it was a YA not filled with excessively mature themes.

This book was so fun! I loved the "atmosphere" with the different types of media and the story told from several viewpoints. It's an easy, quick read and fairly light-hearted overall.

I really enjoyed this book. Felt different from A Homemade Life (less nostalgic) but I loved reading everything related to opening the restaurant from an honest and relatable narrator. Plus, recipes!

I enjoyed this book, though it felt a little disjointed at times. I liked books 1 and 2 of the series better but this one moved the story along and I'm looking forward to reading book 4.

LisaMakeWords Can't wait to see what you think of Book 4. Blue Lily was also my least fav of the series though I loved it. Just thought the others were more entertaining. 3y

I LOVED this book. It was exactly what I wanted for the end of a trilogy, the best of all 3 books and a great conclusion to the storyline. One of the best series I've read in a long time.

Itsmebiancaa Aren't they amazing?! Have you heard that Pierce is going to continue the series with a new trilogy taking place ten years later called, Iron Gold?!! 3y

A really great sequel to Red Rising with a much larger scope and more world-building. I liked how the political aspects were discussed and Darrow is a great example of a flawed protagonist. Fair warning, it's a very sad book with a ton of violence and a really high kill-count.
