Starting up Prince of Thorns next for the #24in48 !! The ending of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer left me wanting more, but I'm leaving the sequel for another day ! Prince of Thorns is a bit shorter, and I've been excited about it for some time !
Also, here's a pop art of my 24in48 progress, just because 🎉

Great view into the set and the details of the movie and how the magic came together, though I should have left it for the end of #24in48 when I'm half asleep :')

I will definitely be needing this quote, as I'm nose-deep in trying to survive med school 😂 Nevertheless, WHAT a book. At one point it took priority over dinner. I'm not quite done yet, though. But what a book, I'm caught like fish in a net.

TheLibraryMonster @BookaholicNatty Yeah it is !! I still can't quite believe I finally did it xD But it was so much fun ♥ !! Some of my reads were rereads, which was a crazy decision, but I still really enjoyed revisiting them ! How about you? do you reread ? What's the longest time you spent reading :D ? 1y

My entry for the Hour 36 challenge of #24in48 : a book I've been holding on to since my childhood, and I can't think of any other book than this ! This is my old, battered, well-worn, reread-way-too-much copy of The Order of The Phoenix, as I read it for the first time in french when I was 11 or so. I do not even remember how many times I reread it, for years and years, at home and in school. I love it so so so much ♥ #24in48 @24in48

My entry for the #24in48 Hour 12 Challenge: a book that changed my views about a concept. This book deeply affected me, it was about the horrifying conditions people lived in during the 1800s in East London. The rich and privileged feast and party while the poor reach out to catch the crumbs that fall. Even the working ones don't get paid even close to enough. The same things happen today, and it makes our day-to-day problems seem silly.

The Magicians: A Novel | Lev Grossman

Currently rereading The Magicians because the first time I read it, it just wasn't the time for it because I didn't like it too much. Now I really missed the world and the characters and loving it on the second time ! ♥ in fact, the very first time I read it I DNF'ed it, then I read it again and finished it, now I'm rereading it and my opinion somehow flipped 180° 😂

Had to interrupt #24in48 to share this quote, I'm almost hitting 9 hours of reading; half of what I was able to read last summer's round, but it's winter and it's the time of studies, so I'm not TOO ashamed. I still wish I read more, though xD

Mr. Either/or | Aaron Poochigian

Currently reading an eARC of this ! It's a thriller... in verse ! Sounds exciting, doesn't it 😊 ? I'm actually thinking it's not so bad ! But I'm reading this super slow ! HOPEFULLY I'll finish it before its release date ! It's fast-paced, funny at some parts, but jumbling the sentence's components to prioritize rhyme over clear meaning... not a big fan of that !

It was a SUCH a satisfying read ! Action-packed, humurous and diverse. It was character-driven and the author completely nailed the character-development ! I was thrown off by the plot twist, which doesn't happen very often, so 5 stars for this one !

The characters were fleshed out and memorable and the plot was suspenseful. The writing style from Watson‘s view was witty, at times relatable, and humourous. My only complaint about it would how long the chapters were. But as to the story itself, I quite enjoyed it, and intend on picking up the next book of the series.

Really enjoyed this book ! The best part was the worldbuilding. It was fascinating, and portrayed the setting almost like a character. Loved the eerie dark parts. Would recommend this if you'd like to read a mystery thriller-like whodunit in a fantasy setting, with a gasp-worthy plot-twist !

This book was AMAZING !! It's so light and easy to get through. The writing style reminds me of C.S Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, and Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events. The description of colors and the world building are fantastic ! I saved so many beautiful quotes that sounded more music than prose. I recommend this book if you like beautiful writing style and fairytales that have the logic of dreams.
