I was super excited about this and spent the past week rereading the first three. This was more a novella, especially since nothing really happens. It was really nice seeing all the characters again but it was so clearly a Christmas story that it sort of threw me off reading it in May (is it only me that feels that way?) Anyway - can't wait till the series continues, a ton of new story lines to explore.

Caroline2 That‘s such a good point!!! This would have made a fantastic Christmas story! Now you‘ve said that it makes perfect sense! 😯 It felt like the first few opening chapters of a book to me! I enjoyed it but it was so much shorter than I was expecting! 😔 1y
TheBookKeepers Ha yes, totally felt Christmasy! 🎄 1y

I'm loving the story but having a little bit of trouble staying engaged. I will of course keep reading because I've heard nothing but super amazing things about it. Anyone else have this issue? It may be because I'm frustrated I still don't know what's going on...

Bklover Did you enjoy The Fifth Season? 1y
PandaPanda @Bklover I definitely did. I struggled with some of the same issues though. 1y
Bklover I have this one but haven‘t started it yet. I hope I haven‘t waited too long- I tend to forget the first book if I wait too long to read the sequel! 1y
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego There is definitely a lot of info to process. I found the 3rd book harder to follow. But I still loved the series. Something I will reread in future though. 😊 1y

This was so much fun! An adult choose your own adventure Victorian romance novel. There's so many different romance adventures to choose from - Scottish guy, fancy Darcy situation, Vampire /werewolf gothic drama, Egyptian lesbian fun ,etc.

Super tounge in cheek don't expect this to be a serious romance but I had a lot of fun playing through all of the scenarios.

I really wanted to love it but I wasn't as sucked in as I was with the first one. I knew going in that the romance piece was settled and there really would be none of that here but for a lot of it I was waiting for the action to happen and then when it did happen I'm not certain I understood what was going on. Beautiful prose, and I really love how she dived deep into mental illness (read the authors note in the beginning)

Obsidio was a little slower than the first two. The characters are finally all in one physical location (for the most part) and have to deal with a lot of the fallout from what happened in the first two books. It still had a lot of that heart stopping action and as usual the format was so so cool. Really love this series and sad to see it ending - even though it had such a satisfying conclusion.

TNbookworm I just finished this myself. I agree with you, great series, hate to see it end. Loved how the book was formatted too. 1y

At first I found this super slow and was having trouble with it. But by mid way I was so hooked I brought it with me to the gym to finish it (super rare for me to read while working out).

A really sad, moving, and beautiful fictionalized account of the final execution in Iceland. You end up learning so much about what life was like for people in this era in Iceland while being sucked into the story of Agnes's life.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Good selection. 👍 1y

So I started this one on a whim when I was on the plane, I don't remember even buying it on my Kindle. At first it was a little hard to get into and I'm still not entirely sure I understand how the magic works in this world BUT I ended up really liking it! It ends on such a cliffhanger that I am definitely going to pick up the next one!

Seekingtardis Agreeeeed! I did it on audio so I think that was easier but by the time I was 30% into it I was in love with the characters and intrigued by the world! 1y
PandaPanda @Seekingtardis yes! The next one should be really good now that everything is in place 1y
intothehallofbooks I‘m glad you mentioned the cliffhanger! Oh man. I want to read this but now I definitely need the next book on hand! 1y
PandaPanda @intothehallofbooks I would wait. I think if I had known the next book wasn't out yet I would have waited. I think it comes out pretty soon! 1y

I read a ton of books on vacation so I won't be posting about all of them but this one was one of the better ones. It was set more in oldey times than I thought it would be but ended up really liking that aspect. I enjoy the Jane Austen like read while thinking about some very sci fi time travel issues and also a little bit of modern day romance.

This book was a really quick read but so raw and real that I often had to look away or stop reading for a minute. That is very unlike me. It feels wierd to say I liked it because it was so intense but I would say everyone should read this. I've heard some people say they found it boring and there is some repetition but I would definitely say it's worth it. #booked2018 @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Cinfhen I agree, this is a book I feel EVERYONE NEEDS to read...the message is so powerful and who hasn‘t judge another person unfairly based on a quick glance 😞 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I felt the same way about this book. She really lets the reader inside her soul, which can be tough. It its worth every moment. 1y

I decided to reread this because I'm seeing the movie next weekend. It was one of my favorites growing up but I haven't read it since I was 10 or so. I have to say - some of the dialogue and Meg's character didn't really hold up over time the way I would have hoped. But, I am still so excited to see the movie and for old times sake I'm giving it a pick:)

whatsthEStorey I want to reread this before the movie as well and have been wondering how it will stand up against my memory. Great cover! 1y
kgriffith Agreed re: Meg‘s character. I listened to the audio last week also in preparation for the film and I don‘t know if it was the narration or how she was written, but Meg was not the sympathetic protagonist I remembered. 1y
PandaPanda @kgriffith yes! A little whiny and honestly that situation with Cal does not really hold up to modern ideas of healthy teenage relationships 1y
See All 6 Comments
PandaPanda @whatsthEStorey honestly even though I was a bit disappointed I am so so excited for the movie! 1y
kgriffith @PandaPanda Yeah, the children are all more two-dimensional than I remembered, and Calvin was almost comically dated by so many of his lines! 1y
PandaPanda @kgriffith yes! Definitely going to need to be a lot of updating in the movie. 1y

Starting a new train book (I commute 2 hours on the train every day and like to read short stories) featuring my new manatee bookmark! 🚆 🚂🚃📚

So excited about this one after everything I have heard.

Christine11 I ❤️ that bookmark! 😊 1y

I loved this! It was such a quick read and the heroine was perfect. Such a fiesty pirate lady who doesn't take anything from anyone, lots of easy to follow action, and some romance!

This was so good!! Thank you so much @Tiffy_Reads for sharing this for our #lmpbc group!

This was like a 15 years later for the Scooby Doo gang mixed with some horror. Hijinks and hilarious I really loved it. Casper did too... His favorite character (and mine) was of course Tim the Weimaraner. #dogsoflitsy

PandaPanda @BookaholicNatty your on the right track! Tons of Scooby Doo references 1y
