I really enjoyed Grady‘s unique take on vampires, which wasn‘t an easy feat. Also being from the south himself, Grady nails the idiosyncrasies of southern culture. This is a quick, fun read. 4/5⭐️

This #lmpbc pick will be coming your way soon @TsundokuAleax and @bookandcat

kyraleseberg Oh my gosh instant stack! Love Grady Hendrix, he never disappoints!! 9h
TsundokuAleax Very excited for this one! 3m

I finished today and don‘t even have words! Aaaaahhhhhhhhh so good!

TsundokuAleax Omg, I am dying to read anything by Erin since we had to wait so long for another book. 6d
Schlinkles @TsundokuAleax It was totally worth the wait. The writing is so beautiful and familiar. It‘s like hanging out with an old friend. 6d
TsundokuAleax @Schlinkles I kinda want to reread Night Circus before I read this. For no other reason than it has been way too long since I read it. 6d
Schlinkles @TsundokuAleax I reread Night Circus right before reading this too. I highly recommend it! 6d

I‘ve had this ARC since January but haven‘t been able to bring myself to read it yet. I just finished rereading The Night Circus and fell in love with it all over again. The Starless Sea is the book I‘ve been anticipating since I finished The Night Circus the first time. I haven‘t even begun and I already don‘t want it to be over.

I enjoyed this for the most part. I thought the pieces where she took well known tales and told them from every character‘s perspective were the ones that made the biggest impression. @TsundokuAleax @bookandcat

TsundokuAleax I love her poems about the villains. They were fascinating and wonderful. I am finding the memes about understanding Disney villains more as I get older to be very accurate. 3w

I‘m loving the show and I love the premise of this, but I think the comic execution, at least in this first volume, isn‘t the best. My husband assures me it improves so I‘ll keep reading eventually.

Mark Russell is unbelievable. Just like his take on the Flintstones, this is a brilliant political satire. This is a look at what it means to be an American set against a cold war McCarthy backdrop. In the words of S.P., “There‘s no such thing as a free country without it‘s subversives, radicals and undesirables.”

3.5 I‘m torn on what to say about this one. The writing was beautiful, one of the more literary YA novels I‘ve read. That said, the pacing and plot of this was just not great. The “twist” at the end wasn‘t really so much of a twist as I guessed it the moment the character appeared.

Really interesting premise and novel take on an alien invasion. I‘m curious to see where the story goes in the next two books and if he explains what happened to America further. I like the jumping back and forth in time for the narrative, but not sure I really care for Kaaro as a protagonist.

DrexEdit Looks like a terrific read! Stacked! 2mo
