She used to say that the heartbeat was the first music that a person heard, and that every child was born knowing the rhythm of her mother‘s song.

Elodie was a nostalgic person, but she hated the charge. The word was terribly maligned. People used it as a stand-in for sentimentality, when it wasn‘t that at all. It described a yearning of the most profound kind: an awareness that time‘s passage could not be stopped and there was no going back to reclaim a moment or a person or to do things differently. - Kate Morton

I have spent a few days avoiding this book, so I think it‘s time to call it quits. I LOVE the indigenous people aspect of this story, unfortunately that was the only interesting part to me. The author got distracted immersing us in “Story” (a part of the indigenous culture), that she forgot about the...story. 🤷🏻‍♀️😅

I enjoyed this story, Xiaolu is able to convey the internal struggles of a young person, Fenfang, in Beijing. Despite life‘s obstacles, she manages to keep her strength at every step. I would have liked to have read the original version, as the author rewrote it once it was translated to English. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But I enjoyed reading about the blunt, sometimes somber, sometimes hopeful edges of Fenfang‘s life.
Favorite part: Heavenly Bastard in the Sky.

I really loved the murder mystery, and how the author told the story. I felt like I was just as lost as Aiden at every step (I felt like it was the authors intent, so I didn‘t have a problem with that). I did have a problem with when the identity of Anna and Aiden is revealed - without any real detail of memory from Aiden about his sister, etc, it didn‘t have very much impact. It should have been a more pivotal moment... 👇🏻

Robothugs It also didn‘t come together at the end in a way that left me feeling satisfied. It fell into the same “rushed ending” feeling a lot of other books do. In the end, the quality of the writing didn‘t redeem this enough for it to be a pick for me. (edited) 4mo
BookDragonNotWorm I agree. This one had good bones but left me completely underwhelmed. 4mo

Caraval 3. Finale | Stephanie Garber
post image
Panpan

I was mostly able to look past the faults of the first two novels (overly flowery language, romance quibbles) because I loved certain things about each of them. But it seemed like no matter what I did, I wasn‘t able to look past those things for this one. It was as if all the bad qualities from the first two were put together into one for a grand, well... finale. Perhaps without the element of Caraval, it lost the necessary magic. 👇🏻👇🏻

Robothugs On a fun note: Scarlett... I did not know toe sweating was a thing in those situations (certainly not the first to sweat or be noticed). Can anyone verify? 🤣🤣 5mo
Robothugs I was pretty disappointed with the relationship dynamic between Tella and Legend (and in a different way, Jacks and Tella) which is problematic at best and reminiscent of Twilight-era novels. We have to evolve past that in our literature. 🤷🏻‍♀️ This is a subject I could go on about, but I think out of everything it left me most disappointed. 5mo

This book is full of beautiful, some powerful, quotes and it was rude of me to pick just one for the photo. Sometimes the story and character building walked the fine line of leaving me a little bored and for my mind to wander, which resulted in figuring more of the story out. The writing more than redeems this. My spoiler comment was frustrating for me. 🤯

Robothugs I can‘t help but feel the entire thing plot could have been avoided if they had included certain people in on the fact that they were siblings. Jacinta at the very least, for heaven sake! ? It was touching how far they went to protect Juliàn from the truth. But. It. Could. Have. Been. Avoided. 6mo

With Rus‘ on the brink of war, Vasya is faced with coming to its aide more than once, forcing her to decide who she will become. I was very impressed with the character development, each having fully come into their own. Arden did well tying up most loose ends to the story, and ultimately I was happy with the ending to this trilogy. Sad to see Vasya go, but I will revisit her.

Review is for the new story included. The new short story covers some of the time Binti first spends at the university and her feelings as she just begins to try to cope with the events of the first novella. If I hadn‘t read this before, it‘s great insight to have. Having read it before, it feels an unnecessary addition. But I do love Binti, so I was happy to have that new bit to read!

I was final able to read and finish a book. I adored this movie and had the book on my TBR for way too long. I liked being able to see the growth of Charlie over the course of the year through his letter writing. It does deal with some triggering material, but it‘s what makes for such a poignant coming-of-age story. Absolutely loved this.

I have so much love for this book! The inclusivity with sexuality was heavily emphasized, but it needed to be for how naive Nettie was. A bit anticlimactic at the end for me - I was expecting more from it. I‘m interested in where Nettie‘s story takes her and so I‘ll be picking up the next book.

I was a bit disappointed with this. It was slow/dragged in places for me. Part 3 was great but getting there at times was a chore. The writing was beautiful and perhaps the one redemptive quality for me. Between The Essex Serpent and this one, the former was the better of the two.
