I absolutely adored this beast of a book. I loved the multi point of views. Kaladin is my favorite character and my heart broke for him multiple times. The world building and the characters were great. This is a masterpiece and now one of my favorite fantasy series ever.
#bookstagram #bibliophile #litsy #littens

Angitron I started dipping my toes into this, but my library loan ran out before I barely began. I‘m a bit hesitant to continue because A) I‘m not a huge high fantasy fan, and B) It‘s one big honking book, but it gets such great reviews, I may go back to it. Your review is pushing me towards continuing! 7mo
The_Heeler_Booklife @Angitron that‘s a bummer that it ran out. Yeah, these books are really chunky. I definitely recommend it. It‘s not super duper fantasy in this book. You do have like a spirit that talks to Kaladin and he can do things. Then, the soulcasting is another thing. Then, the visions. That‘s really all. I‘m a huge fan of fantasy though. Definitely give it a try and let me know what you think. 😊 7mo

This book was a fresh breath of air. It was just so good and cute and everything I wanted. I loved the ballet and how proactive Mia is. The romance was adorable. I loved them looking for the painting to see if she really did have an ancestor that did ballet in Paris. I loved the friendships that were made. I highly recommend this book.

When I saw this was a #botm book a few months ago I thought eh, I don‘t want it. I was looking through Libby and decided to pick it up as an audiobook and I fell in love with this book. It was so beautiful. I didn‘t want the story to end. It was heartbreaking with self-discovery and just great. I totally recommend this book.

Lena‘s twin sister Cambry dies by jumping off Hairpin Bridge, also known as suicide bridge. Her death is ruled as a suicide. Lena doesn‘t believe her sister‘s death was a suicide and that she was actually murdered. Lena drives to Montana and confronts the cop who found Crambry.
This book takes over the span of a few hours. Not much really happens. The action was mediocre. I loved No Exit, but found this to not be as great. #botm

This was a good book. I‘ve been really enjoying the Bridgerton series and thankfully I can binge the last three books after this since they finally came in from the library. I liked the children, Phillip, and Eloise. I did get a bit annoyed that Phillip only wanted Eloise to be a mother.

This book has a lot of science and math in it and it is really interesting, but at times it does feel like overkill. I do like all the experiments Ryland does. I really, really loved Rocky and just loved the interactions between Rocky and Ryland. The flashbacks were interesting and the twist that we get is just crazy. I really recommend picking this book up, it lives up to the hype. #botm

I found this to be a bit dry and it bounced around a lot in the beginning and I was very confused. I really liked the commentary on BLM, LGBTQ, and taking meds for mental illness. I totally related to taking meds for mental illnesses and therapy. This was not a terrible memoir, but thought provoking and I liked that towards the end of the book. I can say I usually don‘t like memoirs and try to stay away from them. #botm

I really enjoyed this book. I picked it up because I signed up to do a book tour for Misfit in Love, but I didn‘t know it was a sequel to this, so I looked up on Libby if the library had an audiobook and they did. I loved the day to day life of Janna. I was confused about the titles of chapters of Saint, Misfit, and Monster.

This book has a lot of mixed reviews and I was kind of nervous to read it. Plus, a lot of thrillers fall flat for me because I end up guessing things. Well, that didn‘t happen to me with this book. I never guessed who did it and the twists. The book was well done, but it is a little on the slow side. I did enjoy it and it kept me very entertained with making me want to know what happens.

This is the sequel to The Devouring Gray. In Fourth Paths it must be saved. The beast has been subdued, however a new danger lurks.
I was so confused about who the characters were and how far in time this takes place from The Devouring Gray. I really should have reread The Devouring Gray before reading this, but it is okay. It was a good read still and I still enjoyed the characters and the stuff they faced. #bookstagram #litsy

It is Kansas 2065 and Adri has been selected to be a colonist on Mars. However, weeks before the launch she finds a journal of a girl who lived in her house in the 1930‘s. This girl lived through the Dust Bowl and Adri needs to know what happened to her.
So, this book is told in three point of views. I wish we got more about the Electric. I found myself not connecting with the characters. It was definitely a short, fast read.

First of all, I think this would have been way better to read physically instead of listening to it. Sometimes I found myself lost when I listened to the audiobook. The only reason I chose the audiobook because my library says the book is lost and I didn‘t want to buy it. I did like the action in it. I will be reading the rest of the series and hopefully physically.
