3 ⭐️ review on #goodreads. I'm just underwhelmed by where this story went especially with all the hype surrounding the series. I think YA Fantasy is just not "going there" and is starting to be too predictable for me.

All prepped to ship tomorrow! I'm not too crafty, but this was fun! Can't wait for my match to open these 🎃👻 #halloweengoespostal #fallbookexchange

Readingnomad1 @SilversReviews Thanks! 😊 Wrapping paper is not a friend of mine. I thought tissue paper would be a little easier on me & I'm pretty proud of it! 2y

I'm so excited it came! The box is a little beat up 🤕 but I had my grandmother take a peak inside to make sure nothing was hurt & she says all looks okay & yummy 🤔 Super excited to see what's inside! #halloweengoespostal #fallbookexchange

On a side note: mine should be going out tomorrow, I had an issue with a book; but my match lives shockingly close to me, so it shouldn't take long to deliver 😊

JanJan Glad you got it! Hopefully, everything will be fine... it‘s mostly all wrapped too (so that should help). 2y
Readingnomad1 @JanJan Thank you! I've been fighting the urge to peak since it came! I can't wait! 😊 2y

In reference to gambling! On a personal note, since moving to northern Illinois I have seen how much gambling addiction is a problem out here. We have slot machines in all the bars & even some gas stations. Many ppl waste their lives & family income in these places-so this is exactly how I feel explained so beautifully by Leigh Bardugo.

5 ⭐️ review on Goodreads! So far this is my favorite book of the series. I'm just such a fan of her writing and the character development. I'm almost halfway through The Raven King, but so far this is still my fave!

CruelSister Yeah. I was really underwhelmed by the book. I had such high hopes, too! :( 2y
RaimeyGallant I think this is why I haven't picked it up yet. 2y
Readingnomad1 @RaimeyGallant I'd say pick it up. It was a quick read and there were aspects I enjoyed. I could have finished it in a day, but I had school and a 3 year old slowing me down. It can seem slow going for plot development, but I think that's what it needed to show the progression of how Quincy thinks and feels about things. 2y

CruelSister I'll be curious to your thoughts on this once you've finished the book. I haven't had anyone to talk to about it since I finished it about a month ago! :( 2y
Readingnomad1 @CruelSister I finished this last night! I'm still not fully sure how I feel. I liked the story in a whole, but I'm not sure about the ending. 🤔 2y
CruelSister Overall, I was pretty underwhelmed by the book. With a lot of suspense thrillers I don't hold it against the author when I have to really suspend my disbelief, sometimes that's part of the fun, but this book had me rolling my eyes a little too much to enjoy it as much as I wanted to. :( 2y
Readingnomad1 @CruelSister that's one of the reasons I've taken a break from thrillers. They just seem underwhelming. I like the horror movies with the Final Girl theme, so maybe I had higher hopes. Plus all the hype for this had me excited. 2y

Bedtime story of the night was The Forgetful Knight. This is a crazy story with the narrator often not remembering how the story goes. Junior was full of laughs with this one. 4 ⭐️ review on Goodreads.
