So I was soooo excited about the 7th book in the Invisible Library series that I didn‘t even share that I was reading it. 😅 Finally my suspicions were confirmed but a whole other level of WTF hits you at the end. 😬 Can‘t wait for #8!!!

emz711 You're reminding me about this series! Held at the library! Thanks 2y

4.5/5 💚‘s

I think I am officially out of my reading funk! Yay!

The story follows the start of the second Formic war in the Enderverse. But the formics are less important than the character you come to o ow in the first formic war trilogy. If I could sum it up, I‘d tell you this is a book about love. Love for those close to us and love for the human race.

I can‘t wait to share some of my favorite quotes from this book. Stay tuned! 😉

My idea of a WILD night is cataloguing all my books in the CLZ books app! I haven‘t even gotten to 2 bookshelves or my boxes of books in storage yet and already have 191 logged! 🤯

Pictured is my bedside table of books I‘ve already read. Who wants to play a fun game and guess how many books are in there? 50pts to your house if you get it right!

Hints: it‘s 3 rows deep and a mix of hard and soft covers.

As if my sex therapy certification program isn‘t expensive enough, they have to have really AMAZING people for their conferences who have written books. After a conference with Peggy I IMMEDIATELY had to get her new book. I can‘t wait to read it! 😍

Taking a break from client notes to work on my final project, a book repot no less, for my certification in consensual non-monogamy! So far I am loving the book and it‘s little pearls of wisdom can be applied to monogamous relationships as well. Though it‘s giving me some very #Stoic #MarcusAurelius feels. 🤔😳

1: If we can count Plato‘s dialogues as “literary” I‘d love to be named after Socrates‘ wife (maybe mistress or second wife) Xanthippe. I can‘t think of any others but literary names are awesome.

2: Technically both my kids have literary names. Zooey was named after Zooey Deschanel who was named for a character in Franny & Zooey I believe. And my son, Ender, is named after Ender Wiggin from the Ender‘s Game series.

Instead of stars I use 💚. Sometimes I‘ll use a half rating but typically stick to whole numbers. So here‘s my breakdown.

1/5 💚s: Do not read/waste your time (idk that I‘ve ever used a 1 before).
2/5 💚s: This is not a book for me, I didn‘t like it
3/5 💚s: it was enjoyable
4/5 💚s: loved it! Consider reading too
5/5 💚s: OMG! Obsessed! Adds to favorites. Everyone go read it NOW!!! 😍

I‘m a picky reader so most of my books end up being a 4.

Clwojick It‘s good that you‘re picky though. You know what you want, and that makes the 5 💚 gems that much better! 3y

4/5💚s

The war with the Formics continues and the characters I loved from book‘s 1 & 2 are there to fight it! There is heroism, loss, and a reordering of Earth‘s defense. And of course it ends on a (predictable) cliffhanger. I guess it‘s time to start reading about the second Formic war trilogy and see how Mazer Rackham becomes famous and the Ender universe is started!

Follow the leads of Earth Unaware (and meet some new friends) as the Formics begin to invade Earth. See how they struggle to survive and attempt to save the world. I think my favorite part is seeing the small parts of this story that set the scene for children in war, how they are trained, and the beginnings of what ultimately makes Ender Wiggin the success he is.

Here is how it all began! Told from 3 different perspectives we learn how the human race became aware of the Formics and what those who first discovered they were coming to earth did to try to stop them. From the get go it was gripping and heartbreaking. I cannot wait to follow these characters more in book 2 of the first Formic war trilogy.

What an emotional rollercoaster! Bean‘s epic conclusion after he leaves earth with 3 of his children who share his genius and risk of a short life. You also find out something mind blowing about the Enderverse and the history of the Formics. I‘m glad that Bean got some happiness after needing to leave nearly everyone be loved behind on Earth.

Another book bites the dust during quarantine & all I‘m thinking is “why did I wait so long to continue this series?!?!” More than any other book in the Ender‘s Shadows this one hits you in the feels. My heart breaks for Petra and Bean. 😢 However, you got to get to know more of Ender‘s jeesh and the leaders of earth after the Formica wars, which I really liked. Can‘t wait to find out what happens to Bean in the next book!

Finished it in 3 days. Loved the final book and finally my shipping was satisfied. 😜 Action packed as all the rest, heartwarming, and surprising! I soooooo wish the series didn‘t end. What will I read now?!?!? 😭 While I want more, the ending was satisfying, so it‘s not like I‘ve been left hanging on a cliff.

Read this one so fast (& started the 5th) that I didn‘t even have a chance to say I was reading it! I am LOVING this series. But I think in this one my favorite parts (aside from the Greek myth aspect) is when it comes to romantic feelings, whether the characters know or are admitting it or not. Ah teenagers. 😜🤷🏻‍♀️😂 sometimes I wish the characters were older...it wouldn‘t feel so weird shipping them then.

Whoops! Forgot to review when I finished it. 😬

Loved the book. It was written focusing on Cleopatra‘s younger sister and brother (the oldest) and each chapter switched between them. Now I love Cleopatra and Caesar but this was a VERY different viewpoint of the two and it was not at all flattering to either. But I really appreciated the unique perspective it took and am hoping there will be a 3rd book in this series.

Definitely got a different look at Socrates than anything I‘ve ever read about him. He‘s a lover, a strong solider, and of course a brilliant philosopher responsible for some of my favorite philosophies of life. I really appreciate the research and explanation of where ideas about Socrates as a young man came from. My favorite part was the afterword where a semi-fictional/really good guess what his entire life was like.

My reward for taking care of my health and getting 18 vials of blood drawn today!

Okay so maybe I pre-ordered it and it arrived the same day I had blood drawn...I‘m gonna call it a reward anyways. Lol.

Super excited for this one! Socrates as a young man! I wonder if I will cry like I did when I read that other biography of Socrates. 🤔 Which was silly cause I knew how it would end...but feelings are silly sometimes anyways. 😜😂🤷🏻‍♀️
