Love, love, love, I absolutely loved this Pakistani retelling of P&P!!! It had all the charm and relevance of the original without the cheesiness that other retellings oftentimes have.

Bookish_B I've had my eye on this... glad to see you liked it! 10mo
iread2much I bought this the day it came out, P&P retelling are my favorite candy books, but I haven‘t been able to get to it. I‘m so glad you like it, now I‘m more excited to read it 10mo

Did not enjoy this book like I thought I would. I would actually give it a thumbs down, but the writing itself is not bad. And for the most part, I didn‘t dislike the way Mary was characterized, to me she made a lot of sense. However, I DID NOT like the way the rest of the characters were presented and did not come off as truthful representations of the original P&P.

ThatBookishGal @TheLibrarian exactly! Normally she isn‘t smack dab on the book so I‘m able to function around her. But this time 🤷‍♀️ 13mo

Not really a fan of the couple or their show. Nothing personal, just not into that stuff. Wasn‘t really interested in this book since it‘s EVERYWHERE! But I decided to pick it up at the library and flip through it while on my lunch (because everyone needs some food porn every once in awhile).....and now I want this book for myself! Food looks fantastic and simple to make!!

Schlinkles I‘m the same way, but had to have it because everything looked so delicious. The recipes haven‘t disappointed thus far. 13mo

Super cute manga about a shy girl who loves to read finds herself literally sucked in to the world of fairy tales!

And done. *sighs* I feel like I need to be in this mood for a little bit, but need something warm and fluffy and familiar to go along with it. ACOFAS maybe?

Now I just feel like I‘m being led on!! There‘s going to be another book?!? Bah!!!

Frustration aside...there‘s so much going on in this series...I feel as though that my final feelings for the book can‘t be established until I read the conclusion. So many things to tie up!

LoverofLit Agreed! This book definitely felt like a bridge to the next for sure. 14mo

Reading this, considering buying for my sister who is currently struggling with her bipolar diagnosis and not fully giving in to the care that she needs. Also looking into the author‘s previous book for care tips.

Not feeling super well at the moment, so I decided to sit down with some tea as I snuggle up with this re-read. Couldn‘t wait to reread this after the sample pages for Kingdom of Ash were posted the other day!!!

It was the teens choice for the next book club book. I was a little skeptical, but I ended up really enjoying it! The book appears to be setting up for a fairy-tale retelling with a twist (I won‘t say what!). This was an enjoyable start to a new series!

This was a really great read!! I would love to see it adapted into a series. They could make it beautiful, but as dark and scary as The Handmaid‘s Tale. Looking forward to the next book!

Graphic novel about a haunted museum that was once an asylum. Lightly touches upon mental illness and depression. A quick, fun read when you need a change of pace!
