I really enjoyed reading Falling Kingdoms! It has a somewhat slow start, but I find this to be necessary to introduce fantasy worlds properly. I liked the different perspectives and tho I felt some characters still felt a bit vague, I was really intrigued by the whole premise of this fantasy novel & look forward to the sequel now.

The first half was a bit too much fluff for me, but as the second half was so emotional I even shed a few tears and read the whole second half in one night, I ended up really enjoying it and wanting to read a bit more about Bee & Levi.

Absolutely enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. Unique worldbuilding, great characters and great character developments and an amazing writing style. The only thing that slightly bothered me, was that it was very foreseeable. Still it touches upon very serious topics like prejudice in a very interesting way and with Lazlo we finally get a fictional guy to swoon over that is absolutely non-problematic :') thumbs up!

BookaholicNatty This looks like a fantastic book!!! You have great taste! I also stacked this one too! ❤️📚 2y

The main reason why this is a pick for me, is that from the beginning, it made me think a lot. What makes us human? This question, throughout the story kept on bothering me. The story itself had some flaws, but was overall interesting. Though I would have preferred this to be a standalone.

MyBookBath I'm always curious about this book since I see it all over IG. 3y

A lot of ppl seem to dislike this book. 😅 Apparently there are two reasons. 1. The book has a slow pace. And I agree. But as long as I find the characters to be interesting, I don't mind. 2. If you already know the background story the book is based on, it is rather boring. I can't judge, as I don't know anything about it. But I enjoyed the surprising & unusual character of Lada & Radu. And I can't wait to see what's in store in the sequel!

KimSlr I quite liked it. The first half was really slow and annoyed me but the latter half was great and I still rated it 4 stars! 3y

The very detailed, imaginative descriptions that in the beginning fascinated me, started to wear me out at some point, as I felt it was starting to take away the focus from the main story. On one hand I was fascinated by the contrast of breathtaking descriptions and downright creepy ones, but I guess it is not for everyone, as it makes the whole reading experience more halting to be able to process everything. I prefer more plot development tbh.

Madamereadsalot Also I might add, that it was yet again to some degree a 'YA typical "take heroine prisoner against her will and let her fall in love with you due to no one else being around, but of course it is bc we are freaking soulmates"' ok maybe not exactly to that extent. ? but it definetly plays a bit with this trope. 3y
KimSlr I didn't like the book mich either. It felt like nothing was happening and it was quite confusing.. 3y

Yabookgrl1981 This wasn't one of my favorites either. The writing was too flowery and not enough plot. And basically I was just confused through the entire thing. The cover was pretty though lol 3y
flyingbookbeak I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't love this book. I read about half through and then put it down in favor of other books. Maybe I'll pick it up again eventually. (I agree about the lack of plot though) 3y
Madamereadsalot @Kirsten91 I think I'll try picking up the sequel, just bc sometimes I find myself to be enjoying the 2. book more, bc the plot is already somewhat evolving and we have left the introduction to the world behind us. If I dislike it tho, I'll drop the series 👀 3y
Madamereadsalot @Yabookgrl1981 @flyingbookbeak that's basically my problem. I prefer a well thought through plot over long descriptions, as beautiful as they might be. It just keeps me from getting invested in the characters wellbeing and like I said, makes my reading falter, trying to process every flowery detail. Though I liked some of the descriptions, sometimes less is more imo 🙈 3y

Adorable, but way too short. This graphic novel is a joy for the eye! The illustrations are colourful, imaginative and extremely well executed! I fell in love with the illustration style and those little monsters reminded me of Studio Ghibli movies (and who doesn't love that?!) The story is about an introverted little artist, living in her own little imaginated world.

I hate to say this, but it took me an awful long time to muster the determination to finish this book. The first half just seemed to drag on forever and I could barely feel any emotional connection to any of the characters. The second half turned out to be better. But not so much that I felt compelled to immediately pick up the sequel. I'll definetly give the second book a chance, though I fear this series might not be my cup of tea.

bookishwonderland I have this book on my shelves since last year, but I still haven't read it 😅🙈 I've heard a mix of reviews, but I'm actually curious about it! Sorry you didn't enjoy it as much... 3y
Madamereadsalot @bookishwonderland a lot of ppl enjoyed it! I'm just very fond of characters I feel a connection to. Not in a 'I must be able to relate to them' way. But just.... getting the feeling of actually caring about the characters. I don't know what qualities they need to have for me to care. But when such a connection doesn't build, it's hard for me to enjoy the book. 😅 but that must not be the case for others ✌🏻 3y

Madamereadsalot @contagiousbooks yes, I was intrigued by the setting and theme. But I felt that the whole worldbuilding didn't quite connect and felt closed up. I always only imagined some huge castle (?) in the desert 😅 it's been awhile since I read it, so my memory of it might be a bit foggy. 3y

Salt to the Sea follows several perspectives in WW2 whose paths intertwine and tell a heartwrenching story, that was reality for so many people fleeing from Soviets. As I mentioned on other platforms before, I also have a personal connection, bc my grandma also was from East-Prussia & her story was a similar one. A very emotional read for me, bc the characters are fictional, but the story is not.

Heartless | Marissa Meyer
post image
Mehso-so

Maybe due to high expectations, I ended up being a bit disappointed with Heartless. My first Marissa Meyer book. And though it managed to break my heart just the tiniest bit, I also found myself not thoroughly enjoying this book. I do like stories that show how villains became evil. But the execution (no pun intended) of it, was lacking imo. The strongest character was Jest, but almost everyone else seemed quite 'faint'.

Matim I didn't read this one but other works by this author and it was like the second I put down the book I forgot about the story , it didn't keep me invested enough to care about it . 3y
alexandraflorence I've never read anything by this author, and this book has never really grabbed my attention enough for me to buy and read it. 3y

Madamereadsalot @miserybookchick yeah, well the feeling of this whimsical world of Alice in Wonderland is also hard to achieve for authors not Lewis Carroll, I guess 🙈 But yeah, was excited in the beginning, but more and more I lost interest... 3y

JoJoBeautifullyMe_reads I have actually liked it, I've been listing to the audio book while at work, but I totally can see where you are coming from. I haven't finished it yet (on chapter 47) because I can see the main character becoming someone she didn't want to be in the beginning and it's hurting me. I loved the Lunar Chronicles a lot. She was able to build her own world which, I think, makes those books better. You should give them a try. 3y

As you can probably tell by not one but two copies of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, I really loved this book! It is like a creepy childhood nightmare manifested on paper! I really love Gaiman's smooth transition between reality & the imaginative mind of a child, constantly switching between the two, not knowing what is 'real' & what not. It made me feel childlike again, remembering my own fears I had as a child and nostalgic at the same time.

Norse Mythology | Neil Gaiman
post image
Pickpick

This book is a great collection of norse myths, rewritten in Neil Gaiman's fantastic writing style! It was extremely interesting to see how many authors from Tolkien to Carroll were highly influenced by Norse Mythology and thus every author drawing inspiration from them was in a way as well making use of NM. You even find the story of Adam & Eve! And it was fun to top it all off! Thor and Loki are very interesting characters! Recommend!!

LuniReads I seriously need this book! I love norse mythology (I mean I am Norwegian after all!😂) and am interested to see Neil Gaimans take on it!😁😁 3y

Caraval | Stephanie Garber

Panpan

Me and this book? We weren't meant to be enjoying each others company. Caraval, while working with pretty descriptions, failed to impress me in every other way that counts (to me). I disliked the protagonist, the magic failed to abide to any logical rule and the case of domestic abuse was left unanswered. To top it off, the story seemed full of plottholes & don't get me started on the 'romance'. My one and only thought while reading was: 'meh.'

decorating.reader Bummer ☹️ I enjoyed it but have seen several people just didn't. 3y

Madamereadsalot @AReaderUnderTheSea @Fiebrelectora yep. Thanks to the hype I was expecting a book full of magic & wonder. Instead I got lots of plotholes, a cringeworthy romance and magic that fails to make sense. (I hate when ppl try to explain faults in magic away by saying... 'but it's magic, it doesn't need to go by any rules' 😅 3y
Madamereadsalot @Clarissareads hehe, then again... you enjoyed Wintersong & I did not 👀 sometimes the impressions we get vary a lot from person to person ☺️ maybe you'd enjoy it...

Omg. The only flaw I saw in this book, was that it was too short. So far, this counts among my favourite reads of 2017! It is cute, it is geeky, it is relatable!

Highly recommend you guys to check out this book! THUG deals with a lot of important topics: Black Lives Matter, police violence, prejudice, a fight against racism and a system that is full of fault. The book describes what is daily life for a lot of people. It manages to take everyone along and is very emotional from the beginning. But also very heartwarming. I think, this is a fantastic debut novel and I look forward to Mrs. Thomas's future work

Wintersong | S Jae-Jones

Yes, I know a lot of people enjoyed this book. Sadly, I did not. My problems were many, but there's only so much detail I can include, so here it goes: I'm getting really tired of the Stockholm Syndrome being used as a plot device. For me, being kept captive has zero to do with romance. Liesl's (nonexistent) selfesteem: Gosh, this sent such a bad message. Sex does not make you more 'worthy'. On top, most of the time it was dragging & boring. 🙁

novelheartbeat Glad it wasn't just me!! I DNFed this one 3y
wordrevel I've been seeing a lot of mixed reviews about this one. Glad I didn't pre-order it after seeing comments like yours about Stockholm syndrome. Added the ebook on my Overdrive wishlist, though, in case curiosity gets the better of me. 3y
Madamereadsalot @novelheartbeat nope, not just you! Besides dragging on (and not getting better in this regard) there were just so many things wrong with the 'romance' if you want to call it that... also... some of the german grammar was wrong and that was like 'why did none of the editors check with a native speaker! Ugh!!' 😂 3y
See All 16 Comments
Madamereadsalot @wordrevel if you want a cringeworthy 'romance', a pace slower than walking backwards, a female protagonist you just want to shake some sense into, then... ok, that's mean, I'll stop. 😂 but tbh. I mean every word 🙈 if you'd still want to read it, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it, though! A lot of ppl liked it for being so imaginative. 👀 So who knows, I just couldn't look past my issues with the book 😪 3y
novelheartbeat Oh no!!! That's embarrassing 😂 You'd think they would have a German editor for that! 3y
Clarissareads It's true, it sends a bad message, but i have to say i could also really relate, maybe for the first time, to a character in a book! 3y
Madamereadsalot @Clarissareads I think that annoyed me even more. Bc I could relate to her somewhat as well. But only to a certain point and then I felt it was negative rep for me 😅🤷🏼‍♀️ I do. get selfdoubt, feeling not pretty, unworthy & such. But to me her 'solution' to those insecurities felt not right at all 😪 But overall the pace was just killing me & at the end it felt like nothing really happened. No real character development or such 👀🙈 3y
Clarissareads I agree 100% on the pace, and i continued mostly because the goblin king really interested me, and the dark disguting setting as well... Lets just say that i'm waiting for the sequel to see what will (i don't want to say "if") happen! Wintersong really feel like an introduction to something ? 3y
Madamereadsalot @Clarissareads yeah, it definetly was some kind of intro! But I think I'll pass on the sequel 😶 I had too much trouble reading the first book and my tbr is too long to use my time for series I don't enjoy 🙈 but I hope you'll like it, if you enjoyed Wintersong! ♥️ 3y
Clarissareads I'll give it a chance yep, cause it bothers me when i leave things unfinished >__< For me not finish it, it means the book was BAAAAAD, like that bad! Btw i can only imagine you felt weird reading the wrong words/cases in german 😂 lord help me whenever it happens with italian! 3y

diariodeunaescritora I think it's so important to portrait healthy relationships on books and young adult books often feature toxic ones 😔 I hate it when it happens and it's seen as something to achieve aargh, those little girls who read are going to look for those toxic signals when finding love 😡😡 (edited) 3y
Madamereadsalot @diariodeunaescritora I kind of accepted that most YA relationships start out on a rather toxic basis in books. Sometimes I don't mind things like from enemies to lovers trope. But there are things that are just a no-go. Like this 👀🙈 I'm happy to see characters sometimes to move past that in books, but most often they don't and it is to be accepted as 'normal' which gives me the chills. It's supposed to be challenged and girls can do w/out such! 3y

Mehso-so

It is hard to rate this graphic novel at this point. For one, I think the story in itself needs more explaining which is hopefully going to happen in the following volumes, as of now, it is still a bit confusing. The art is gorgeous, full of detail and the story is full of fantastic ideas and themes. If you want to pick it up, be aware that it is quite violent for most parts and very graphic in it's depiction.

LuniReads I mainly want to pick this up because It's pretty!🙈🙊 It does sound interesting though!🤔 3y
Madamereadsalot @LuniReads I think it is! If you don't mind that it is quite a bit violent. But the comic style is gorgeous, that's for sure! 3y
RambleOn Oh! I read this last summer! I'm so happy to see someone else reading it too. And I agree quite violent and a little confusing at times but overall I was still super intrigued by the story. I'm looking forward to the next volume. (edited) 3y
