It | Stephen King

This was a fucking “pardon my French if you‘re a religious man” masterpiece! The story was so much more than just some creepy clown or IT. I was quickly swept off my feet by Ben, Richie, Eddie, Bill, Mike, Beverly, and Stan. The Losers‘ Club is definite friendship goals! The love these kids had for each other had me shedding tears at moments that were quite unexpected. The ending, it killed me! A week later and I still haven‘t recovered.

BookBabe It is something, indeed. 🎈 2y
jolovestoread @BookBabe It really is! It was not what I was expecting, but so much better. 😄 2y

Shadow and Bone | Leigh Bardugo

Pickpick

Leigh Bardugo has created such an amazing world, I found myself engrossed with every detail of it. I loved Alina‘s character growth. And then there‘s the matter of The Darkling! This guy just made me change my view on villains. I mean, I knew you couldn‘t have a story without a good villain, but this guy just makes everything so much more interesting. I can‘t wait to see how the rest of the story unfolds!

Scorpio Races | Maggie Stiefvater

The writing was beautiful (as Maggie's writing always is) and the story was wonderfully magical. I love the whole feel of Thisby, the love Puck had for the island and everything in it - the comparison to the love Sean had for the water horses, especially Corr. 🐎
Maggie writes these wonderful characters and makes it so easy to feel what they are feeling. As always, I sobbed at the end, because I'm a softy and everything was just so beautiful! 😭

Super cute and fun quick read. :) Bianca resonated with me so much. I love how this book mentions so many things that most of us go through in high school, but never really think about or analyze for that matter. I could definitely identify with Bianca in so many ways... At the end of the day, we have all been the DUFF at some point in our lives. ;)

A Million Junes | Emily Henry
post image
Pickpick

A Million Junes is a wonderful story of love, family, pain, loss, regret, letting go, inheritance... It reminds us of how we carry our families burdens, how they are passed on from generation to generation and how the past will always be a part of us - our history. Only we can decide if we want to let our history and inheritance define us in a negative or a positive way. This is one of the most beautiful books I've ever read!

"You're not a book person, and now you're not an Internet person? What does that leave you?" Levi laughed. "Life. Work. Class. Other people."
"Other people", Cath repeated, shaking her head and taking a sip. "There are other people on internet. It's awesome. You get all the benefits of 'other people' without the body odor and the eye contact."

I seriously have no words to describe how amazing this book is! I didn't think I would become so attached to these characters, but by the end of the book I was so heartbroken! All I wanted to do was hug everyone, especially Melanie.
The writing is brilliant, the characters are so complex, the relationships are perfection, the interactions are filled with so much emotion, it's so much more than a thrilling zombie-apocalypse story. ✨

TheBookAddict Yeah, I felt the same way. But I also wanted to strangle the doctor...😅🤷🏽‍♀️ 2y
jolovestoread Yeah, I should've stated that she was the only one I didn't want to hug! 😂 @TheBookAddict 2y

I haven't been able to properly review or rate this book yet. My thoughts aren't clear. For now I will say that it wasn't all that I expected, maybe I just went in with super high hopes since I loved A Court of Mist and Fury so much. What it did do was leave me in love with Azriel. 😍

Definitely one of my favorite contemporaries. It reminded me of the importance of family and how, even if we drift away, family will always be there - waiting for us to come back.

“Right, stand back, Harry.” He tapped the wall three times with the point of his umbrella. The brick he had touched quivered — it wriggled — in the middle, a small hole appeared — it grew wider and wider — a second later they were facing an archway large enough even for Hagrid, an archway onto a cobbled street that twisted and turned out of sight. “Welcome,” said Hagrid, “to Diagon Alley.” He grinned at Harry‘s amazement.

The story behind our most "beloved" Queen Levana. I must admit that I sympathized with her at certain moments, but that only made me like her less. Great quick read and great introduction to Winter. :)

Mehso-so

Ummmm... So it started out okay and then I just wanted to bail in the middle. It dragged out so much and I just wanted everything tu hurry up! It was very frustrating and then it picked up near the end. All in all it was ok, I ended up yelling at the book a couple of times. 😂 I've heard the movie is pretty good though... 😉

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I enjoyed watching the movie but it's not something I would have chosen to read (if that makes sense) Can completely understand wanting/needing to yell at the characters. 3y
jolovestoread @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I went in not really knowing what I was getting into. I haven't seen the movie yet, just because I like to read the book before the movie. I get it, if I would've seen the movie before, I probably wouldn't have chosen to read the book. 3y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag My taste in books doesn't always match up with my taste in movies 😂 I'll probably never read P.S I Love You (same author) but loved the movie. Hope you've got to a point where the characters are behaving themselves... 3y

Such a great and quick read! I wasn't expecting the twist in the story, which was nice because it turned out not being as predictable as I thought it would be.

I truly do love the peculiar world that Riggs has created. He's so descriptive and the pictures give your imagination an extra boost. But, for some reason it took me FOREVER to get through this book. It felt slow, even though there was always something going on. I will however, finish the trilogy.
