Filling in the gaps in my Bridgerton reading after watching season two! I love a good Cinderella retelling and this doesn‘t disappoint. Just good regency romance escapism. Now bring on season three…

Mrs_B P.s. if anyone hasn‘t heard the news Rege-Jean Page will be back for season three! Yesssssss 1mo

I had not realised quite how local to me this author is and hence the setting in this book. It‘s a sweet tale of unlikely friendships and the role of a library in the community.

TheLudicReader The plot of this sounds exactly like 1mo

I unexpectedly loved Nesta‘s story. Her friendships with Gwyn and Emerie were heartwarming and I look forward to hearing more about their stories. As for Cassian, well, that was steamy! But the best part was certainly the House.

So a lot of people online think that this is not as good as the first book, I actually disagree. I think this is better, Bryce‘s personality flourishes.

Mrs_B OMG THAT ENDING! 1mo
Laughterhp I just finished this one yesterday. Yeah, that ending! I‘m embarrassed how long it took me to figure out where she was. 1mo
Mrs_B @Laughterhp it definitely helped I had just finished a court of wings and ruin before I read this. I‘m still in shock though! Can‘t wait for the next one! My hold came through today for a court of silver flames so that‘s the rest of my weekend… 1mo

So one of the reasons I have been a bit absent from Litsy is because I ended up in a Sarah J Maas rabbit hole. Blame this one. Totally started an obsession. Sooo glad I decided to take the time to read this series before carrying on with book 2 of the Crescent City…

Raynor and Moth are just incredible. This is a continuation of their story after The Salt Path (must be read first!) and hearing Raynor really developing her connection to nature was such a deep read. She makes me want to pull on my hiking boots and take on the world!

TJ Klune does it again. So very different from Cerulean Sea but no less fantastic. It is so clever but heart breaking but wonderful. I stayed up way too late to finish it and cried at the end but absolutely loved it.

jenniferw88 #3 or #4 for me. @jhod just an idea if we go for Sugar and Their Eyes Were Watching God would you have a book with a BIPOC author/character to complete the theme? No probs if you don't want to go down this route. 3mo
Mrs_B @jenniferw88 interestingly, in the foreword, McFadden actually credits Hurston as inspiring her to write. So could be a good pairing! 3mo

Mrs_B @Vansa @CarolynM oh no. Im not even halfway through and the book feels like it‘s heading towards an ending? I‘d bail if I hadn‘t promised my students I‘d read it. 3mo
ChaoticMissAdventures This is such a love it or hate it book. I loved it, but most of the books I read and love are slower and more character driven - I just enjoy the language and slow unraveling. 3mo

They‘re growing on me! Much more satisfying ending to this one but with enough mystery left that I put the next on hold straight away. Lydia is stronger and much more sensible. I‘m enjoying reading paranormal mysteries rather than my usual romances or YA.

I‘ve always enjoy Garth Nix and this doesn‘t disappoint. The action is so fast paced something exciting is happening on every page. There is some minor peril but mixed with humour. You know it‘s good when you‘re still sat in the car in the driveway at home listening because you don‘t want it to stop!

Tianarose Just starting this! It counts towards a “book about a bookshop” prompt in a reading challenge right?! 🤣 barely. Lol 4mo
Mrs_B @Tianarose I would argue there are two bookshops in it of vital importance to the story. 😉 4mo

It‘s rare I read a book like this so quickly, I often start them meaning well then give up halfway through. This book though was riveting. It is so well researched, it challenged a lot of what I thought I knew about depression and anxiety. I can highly recommend it.

The story of Anne de Bourgh, this was an engrossing imagining of her upbringing and life. For some reason this didn‘t quite hit the mark for me, I think too much of the book was given to Anne‘s younger experiences and I wanted to hear more about when she was finally discovering herself. It was still an enjoyable read.

My mum says it isn‘t a Christmas movie. My husband and I strongly disagree!!!
