The Atlas Paradox by Olivie Blake

The Atlas Six | Olivie Blake

Pickpick

If you like dark academia vibes, you will like this book.
Six people with different magical abilities are chosen to protect the Alexandrian Library as a part of a test to be initiated. Only 5 will pass, and they have to unanimously decide which one will be eliminated.
You get to read each person's perspective so you get to know each candidate.
There was quite a plot twist at the end. I can't wait to reach the other two books.

I wasn't really excited for this book as you don't get to read about Gregory that much in the other books.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I loved Gregory and Lucy!
I love that Gregory was dead set on marrying for love like his siblings did.
I really enjoyed this series, and I loved how each sibling had such a different storyline!

Hyacinth is one of my favourite Bridgertons. I love that she reads cheesy romance novels to Lady Danbury.
I liked Gareth as well, except his plan to trap her into marriage.
I really like that this one included a mystery aspect as well! That was a nice addition.

Francesca drove me a little nuts throughout this book.
She was back and forth way too much with what she wanted.
Her fertility issues really touched home for me, I can relate to how she felt.
I love that each book is a little different. Each of the Bridgerton's have a different experience!

I didn't like this one as much. I liked Eloise but did not care for Phillip.
This one did not have as much build up as the others.
I did like that the male protagonist already had children. It was a nice change from the others.

This is my favorite of the Bridgerton series so far!
From the previous 3, I liked Colin the best, so I couldn't wait to get to his story.
I really liked Penelope! I love how Lady Danbury brought out her confidence!

This one is a Cinderella re-telling.
I really liked Sophie. She was very confident and knew what she wanted even when her life was in a bad place.
I like and hate Benedict. He could be charming and sweet, but he also wouldn't take no for an answer.
I loved how Posy's story ended up!

I didn't really enjoy this one.
It is like the show Wednesday with spicy scenes.
I felt there was a lot of build-up for the mystery surrounding the school and the murders, but it was wrapped up really fast. I probably wouldn't recommend this.

emz711 Oh no! I loved it! 1mo

I didn't like this one as much as the first.
I found it a little slower. I did really like Kate, Anthony, not so much. I didn't find him very likable.
I can't wait to read the other books, though. They are entertaining for sure.

I've never seen the show, so I don't know how they compare, but this is a great book!
I found it hard to put down. It's very entertaining. Some parts were surprising.
I'm going to have to read the rest to find out who Lady Whistledown is.

This is a really cute, easy to read romcon book.
It has a lot of tropes, fake-dating, grumpy/sunshine, shared room, etc.
I would rec this to anyone looking for a fast but entertaining read

This duology is a must-read.

It was interesting the whole time, and it had a satisfying ending.

This book is amazing! It's definitely worth all the hype.
I loved all the characters and the plot.
Iris writes letters to her brother, who is fighting in a war, but when she slips them in her wardrobe and they disappear, they are actually going to her work rival, Roman Kitt.
Enemies to lovers, a war between two Gods, what's not to love.
I will be starting the second book immediately.

I loved this book! I read it in a day, and I couldn't put it down.
A wedding planner who doesn't believe in marriage gets involved with one of her vendors, a florist. I love how the present-day storyline is in her point of view, and the past is in his point of view.
It is a cute rom-con type story with a bit of spice.

I really enjoyed this duology. I especially liked this book over the first one.
Oraya's character growth while she struggled with her feelings towards her father, and Raihn was so well written.
I love that we get chapters from Raihn's point of view in this one plus his back story.
It was fast-paced and hard to put down.

I liked the characters Raihn and Oraya. This isn't a book I would boast about, but I would recommend it to someone looking for an easy romantsy to read.

Auren grew so much in this book. She learned to set her boundaries and to say no to people.
The side romance *no spoilers* was a big surprise, and I loved it! I can't wait to read more about them in the next book.
Getting more of Slade's backstory was also a nice surprise. I love that we got so much of his POV in this one.

I enjoyed book two more than book one. It still feels a little slow, but like the first one, I believe it's just building plot!
So many secrets were revealed in this one! I really love all the characters in this book. I feel so bad for Auren. She's such a nice person, and none of the other 'saddles' care to give her a chance due to their jealousy.
I can't wait to see where this series goes.

This was a very quick read. The plot is a cool concept, King Midas makes his favorite girl gold and keeps her locked in a cage.
Be warned there is abuse against women and is very degrading. The kind calls them his saddles.
This book does not have too much going on, but you can tell it is just starting the storyline for the next books in the series.
I can't wait to read more about Commander Rip and the Kimg of Rot.

I did love this one, but not as much as the first two. As a whole, it was still so good. I was hoping for a little more from certain parts, I won't say as the book hasn't been out for too long and I don't want to spoil.
I loved Lidia's back story. It's so sad.
Ithan, Tharion, Ariadne, and Sigrid's stories seemed a little out of place, and I didn't really enjoy them. I am hoping their stories will continue in the 4th book for the 4th house.

A Court of Mist and Fury | Sarah J. Maas

I liked this book better than the first one. It's crazy how Tamlin just ignores Feyre's PTSD.
I was so happy when Rhys showed up. He's by far the most interesting character in the series. *purrs*
The banter between him and Feyre is perfect. I love how they help each other.

This was a re-read.
I had a hard time getting into this series the first time. I read Throne of Glass first, and this one just doesn't compare, in my opinion.
However, I do still love this series. Feyre is such a strong character. I love that she did whatever it took to take care of her family, even though they were all the worst. They did not appreciate her at all. None of the characters really jumped out at me, except Rhys, obvs.

This was a re-read to refresh myself for the new release.
I love this series just as much as the other two. It's so cool that this one takes place in a more modern setting.
I also love that there are more species in this series!
The plot is huge in this series. Bryce is such a strong character. I loved her character growth from party girl, to a recluse, to opening herself up to Hunt. I loved all the characters in this one, especially Lehabah.

This book started off slow, but it really picks up a quarter of the way through.
The way the time period jumps were written is very unique and well-done!
The mystery behind June's life makes this book hard to put down. I loved all the characters in this story. It wraps up perfectly!

Bunny: A Novel | Mona Awad

Mehso-so

I read this book in one evening, I had to know where it was going.
I ended up Googling what other readers interpreted from the ending as it was a little confusing.
I felt sorry for Samantha for most of the book. She seemed so lonely and lost. The Bunnies were all very intriguing.
This is the type of book you only need to read once, but I would maybe recommend it to someone if they wanted to read an out of the box book.

A Curse For True Love | Stephanie Garber
post image
Pickpick

I didn't like this one as much as the second book.
The story seemed to end so abruptly, I wanted more of Jacks and Evangeline's ending than we got.
LaLa and Chaos' stories were built up in book two but did not seem to go anywhere in this book.
Other than that, I really did enjoy this book. It was so sad and heart-breaking. Apollo's development was quite surprising!
I can't wait for more of Stephanie Garber's stories in the future.

emz711 For real. It should have been a duology. There was too much recap 4mo
bookish6 Agreed! A duology would have been perfect. 4mo

I enjoyed this book more than the first one.
Evangeline‘s character grew so much, and you get to learn so much more about Jacks and some of the other fates.
I want to live in The Hollow! Little mini dragons everywhere and different food and drinks just appear at certain times of the day, yes, please!
This one had such a twist at the end. It really makes you need to start the third book asap.

Interesting storyline. The main character is known as the Last Astronomer, a title that has been carried throughout generations, and she is destined to find The Architect.
She is the only one who understands the knowledge of the stars that can possibly find a cure to the disease spreading throughout their world, and the Architect is the only one who can get her where she needs to go.
