It‘s usually takes me about 4 days to read a 400 page book but I couldn‘t put this book down and finished it in one day!!!

It was so good! I love this new world Leigh Bardugo has created. I can‘t wait for book two!

Wow! So disappointing. Burning a Latina authors book because you don‘t think white privilege isn‘t real is not cool.

The Testaments: A Novel | Margaret Atwood
post image
Mehso-so

This story starts 15 years after the The Handmaids Tale. I had no plans on buying or reading it but a friend of mine wanted to buddy read it so I said, “why not?” Even though I was fine with the ending of the first book.

The first half had me flying through the story I couldn‘t put it down but even before half way through I knew how this story was going to end and honestly it kind of irritated me. Aunt Lydia annoyed me the most

Contd 👇🏽

That-Bookish-Hiker And for those who have read this you may agree with me. I felt like this story wasn‘t necessary and didn‘t answer any questions. You know commanders are corrupt just based on what Offred went through so none of this was surprising. It was pretty great to learn more about the Aunts though. Besides that it was written well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (edited) 1w
therealdealbeall I agree it wasn't necessary. I liked learning more about the day to day life in Gilead and it's formation, but I generally like that kind of thing in books where the world building plays a large part. 1w

Hunger Games | Suzanne Collins

A prequel to the triology was announced andirons not sure how I feel about this since it‘s been years from when the last book was written and when the last movie was released.

Maybe I am feeling this way cause I‘m reading The Testaments now and if you‘ve read The Testaments maybe you know what I‘m talking about.

What do you feel about this?

pilardib I'm curious to say the least. I really enjoyed the first and second books of the trilogy. And I also love prequels so... let's see :P 2w
cherinium I know what you mean about The Testaments. I felt like it ruined the scary, mysterious vibe of Offred's story by answering too many questions. I think I'm more ok with this since it's a prequel, though. (Also, it's been many years since this world was visited on screen.) There's something different about that than a sequel that wasn't needed clearly written just to profit off the success of a tv show. 2w
That-Bookish-Hiker @cherinium you make some good points and have changed my mind. This is what I love about litsy! I was on the fence because I was thinking “it‘s been so long!” But you make such an excellent point when you say it has been years since the movie so this doesn‘t feel like a new release just for profits. 2w
That-Bookish-Hiker @pilardib let‘s hope it‘s good! 🤞🏼 2w
cherinium @That-Bookish-Hiker Well, changing your mind was not my intention, but I agree that Litsy is a great platform for us to express our differing opinions. And if it does result in changed minds, there's nothing wrong with that! Having a mind open to change is so rare these days. I suppose we'll just have to wait and see if this new glimpse into Panem is worthwhile! 💕 1w

17 yr old Marisol Morales and her 12 yr old sister Gabi have been caught crossing the border looking for Asylum in the U.S. and the only way to get asylum is if Marisol participated in a study helping people deal with their PTSD.

There is SO much I want to say about this book but don‘t have enough space. Such an impactful story, written with great characters and the author did an amazing job shooting the contrast between Marisol‘s life and Rey‘s.

Esther Solar‘s family has been cursed by death. Once a Solar realizes their fear they will die by it. But is the family really cursed or are they suffering from mental illnesses?

I found this story to be very interesting. There were moments of magical realism that had you questioning if the Solar family really was cursed. Written well and the characters were great.

Helen is not your normal 14 yr old. Her father is Zeus, her half sister is Aphrodite and her nephew is Eros. Being a half god and living with gods and trying to be normal is hard work!

I love stories that include the Greek Gods and this book didn‘t disappoint. It‘s so cute and funny. Helen drive me crazy but she‘s 14 so that‘s bound to happen lol. I loved the interactions she had with the Gods. I just wish we got more w/her friends.

Nina and her twin sister are not your average teenage girls. Their parents are Watchers and they grew up at the Watchers Academy.

I truly enjoyed this book. I am a huge Buffy fan and had recently just binged watched the series. This book picks up 2 months from where the Buffy tv series ended.

If your a Buffy fan then this book is for you. I LOVED it. Even despite some parts of the book were redundant and made me want to scream.
