4.75⭐ The storyline is phenomenal and the twist is otherworldly lol. I had so much fun reading this thrilling and mysterious story and I highly recommend it. It lost a .25 ⭐ because I kinda predicted half of the twist? Not all of it but I did know a part of it sooo yeah.

SeaToSkyes Loved this one as well! 4mo

5⭐THAT WAS FREAKING AMAZING!I didn't know that it was a retelling of beauty and the beast & I found out that many people were disappointed because of this fact,but I didn't know till the end & I truly loved each and every second of this novel.I get the disappointment people feel,but I don't really care if it is a retelling or not.I loved the Novel as it is & that's what matters to me.I'd highly recommend reading it because the end is WORTH IT

KCBee32 I LOVE this series so much!! Have you read the second book yet?! It‘s even better than the first. Which is hard but I promise. You won‘t even know how to feel through the first half of it 6mo

LitStephanie I liked the fairy tale aspect, and it is still a unique story. I wouldn't even really call it a retelling; more like it is using some very old theme and plot ideas. Totally agree every bit of this book was great! 6mo

I was thinking that I'll not be able to achieve my goal for this year since july maybe ? But I did it and I can't believe that I managed to do this! This was such a hectic year for me and I didn't really read that much (or so I thought) it is a weird feeling to be able to achieve my goal with all the problems and things that kept me unmotivated to do anything at all this year. I'm ecstatic that I was able to do it!!!

My professor today asked who likes reading and I was one of the few who raised their hands. She gave me this novel and I can't believe myself 😂♥️ This is my favourite professor and I have loved her since the first lecture she ever gave me. Now, I have a book of hers that she gave to me and she will not take it back 😂♥️♥️♥️♥️ I can't believe it 😭♥️

rwmg So, does he do the fandango? 8mo
EvieBee Lol @rwmg A Queen fan? 8mo
Vansa I LOVE this book. It has one of the best opening lines ever, and is an excellent work about the constantly changing politics of the French Revolution. I love Rafael Sabatini's pirate books ,this one's quite different but just as good. 8mo
Vansa What a delightful professor! 8mo
Seeking_Serenity @Vansa I can't wait to read it honestly! And she is the best professor I've ever encountered! She genuinely cares for us and listens to what we want to say. She even goes out with us when she feels that we're not feeling well! She is more like a mother than a professor if I'm being honest. 8mo

Thanks in advance! ♥️

TravelsWithBooks I have an iPhone. Depending on the audiobook format, I use the Music app or the Books app to listen to the files. 9mo

Hamlet | William Shakespeare

4⭐ I thought that hamlet would be my all time favourite shakesperean play, but it isn't. I don't know if it's because I had really high hopes for it or what, but I didn't like it as much as his other plays. It was good and kept me interested, but it have any effect one by the end. I liked some quotes and some parts, but it wasn't how I expected it you know?

4⭐ Good but could have been better. Why call the series "Red Queen" when there is no red queens anywhere?
But I still would recommend reading this series

persephone1408 Mare is the Red Queen. She was called that at the end of the first one. 9mo
Seeking_Serenity @persephone1408 yes I know, but the name gives the sense that she will become queen at the end and this doesn't happen so I felt like it was kind of irrelevant you know? 9mo
persephone1408 @MehoLovesReading I can understand that. I feel like she is a queen without a title. If that makes sense. 9mo
Seeking_Serenity @persephone1408 you actually have a point. I can see that now. 9mo

Seeking_Serenity @GingerAntics I'll see if I can find it. But I'll have to finish reading it first because I'm reading it for university. 10mo
GingerAntics @MehoLovesReading that makes sense. So you‘ve made it to the most famous speech/soliloquy in the English language. That really takes on so much meaning when you dig into its many layers. Has your prof talked about feigned vs real insanity for Hamlet yet? That always an interesting conversation, and of course there are scholars that land hard on both sides of that argument. 10mo
Seeking_Serenity @GingerAntics no we didn't discuss this scene yet. I think next class we will discuss this speech. I'm trying to stay on top of my reading so I'm reading faster than what she is discussing with us so far. 10mo

4⭐ but it almost got 3.5 stars only. The extra 0.5 star is for the letters. They made me cry and feel so heartbroken because I felt he was my own father writing me letters that allowed me to have a final piece of him. It was so good and I'm glad I read it after putting it off for so long.

"More than this: the second he touched her, he knew that he had misunderstood everything. When his palms hit her shoulders, when the water closed over her head, Lydia had felt relief so great she had sighed in a deep choking lungful. She had staggered so readily, fell so eagerly, that she and Nath both knew: that she felt it, too, this pull she now exerted, and didn‘t want it. That the weight of everything tilting toward her was too much."

3.5⭐ It was not the best book, but it was okay... I loved the characters and the story itself was decent but it was built around a misunderstanding and it was a stupid one too so it got on my nerves a little.

Kris10H I prefer to think that it was built on an initial manipulation by Dane, rather than just a simple misunderstanding. 9mo
themonaisa @Kris10H I agree! It‘s frustrating to think it was a misunderstanding or failure to communicate, but I think they tried to be clear with each other. It seemed to me that Dane was putting her down to manipulate what people saw; I hate how easy it was to believe him, but that‘s how much influence people like Dane can have, playing it off like “he‘s just immature like that.” Plus, Ethan and Ami were loyal to who Dane was to them and couldn‘t see it. 6mo

I'm feeling kinda down at the moment, so I'd really appreciate it if you left book recommendations that might help me feel better.

I like every kind of book, especially the ones that will make me lose myself in the story so whatever kind of book you recommend can work. It just has to make me get lost in the storyline. I just want to stop thinking before it gets worse in my brain. #BadBrainDay
