Netgalley did not forget about me!! I have been denied so many these past few weeks. This was one of the ones I wanted the most. So stinking happy 🤗
One of my first “out of state” book stops. Myopic Books in Chicago
This game is played so much in this book I swear I could almost play it by now. Let‘s get to war! 🐉
I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out why this book seems so familiar to me. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. The weird back and forth time line thing and contacting yourself from the past and future. Definitely not the same story, but the time thing keeps messing with me just like in Dark Matter. Just 130 pages left and still enjoying it👍
Wow. So this book completely took me by surprise. I have never tabbed a book for quotes, but this one is tabbed everywhere. I loved it. So sad and sweet at the same time. My only issue is that I felt some things that were said were pretty out of character for most teenagers. However, the story line is so good you can overlook some
How do you train the perfect assassin? From childhood of course. I love love love the undertones of this story. Cyrus is the devil thinking he can make Jack the perfect conduit to train to take over when he ascends and becomes something “more”. However, Jack knows what she is becoming and refuses to let her entire humanity go. She is brutal and honest, but also loves and refuses to let the world be taken over by evil. Jack is the best.
I have not been so obsessed and absorbed in a book in such a long time! I cannot quite pinpoint what it is about this story that is so intriguing to me, but I don‘t want to put it down. This is a library copy, but I will be getting my own copy soon. This one will be reread more than once.
This book. You will not only learn about octopus, but also the contemplation of life, the soul and complete acceptance of other living forms of life. I laughed and cried like a baby. I devoured this book today and was sad when it ended. This will definitely be a reread.
Only on page 70, but I don‘t want to put this book down. What would you think if you found out that the laws of physics continually differed from place to place and did not actually apply as a constant as was always thought? Holy shit, my mind just hit the brakes.
The ending just left me a blubbering mess. This is my 2nd Marie Lu book and both of them are outstanding. I will be getting every book she currently has out. I hope there is a sequel coming soon to The Young Elites. I need more of this story.
Well Amazon, job well done...NOT! The box you shipped both of my books in was barely what can be considered a box. Two pieces of cardboard wrapped around each other and the contents still can be seen is NOT acceptable. Both books were damaged. Cover ripped and folded on one of them along with the spine being crushed and ripped. Other book cover had at one point been completely bent in half ruining the cover. 😡😡😡
Good thing I already ordered book two for this one. Great suspense and historical facts all over the place. This is a very hard read for me as a lot of my fathers family died in concentration camps. But I feel it is very important to remember these events and of those who helped others escape.
Holy crap-a-moley! That was a reading wild ride. This book....there are no words to even begin to describe or review it. A death, art theft, a spy network, multiple dimensions, umbrella art, a talking dog. How it all fits together you ask? Literally the authors note at the end of the book tells you how this all fits together. Overall, I really liked it. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Finished this audiobook today. Took me three tries to get through it. I think the problem is me. Fairy tale retelling, I already know going in what the outcome is. Retellings are just a different way to get there is all. Collecting the book series as they are just too pretty. On to Scarlet....
What a great story. My family is Hungarian so the language and geography is like visiting again. This story perfectly fits the Hungarian spirit. Throw in some magic and a little romance and you get a great read.
*This was an ARC from NetGalley to give my free and honest opinion only*
Damn you Netgalley! For months you reject all of my selections. Now that I have a bunch of new reads to dig into you give me two new ARCS in one day?!?
I started listening to this at work yesterday and I love it! More than just about space travel and aliens. There is a mystery involved and the MC is learning a lot about herself. Don‘t want to spoil it, but IT IS SO GOOD!
Just finished book 1, so I am counting each book as a separate one. I love the fact that the adventures so far are disputing religious “mysteries” by solving the mysteries to be explainable events. You have to put yourself into the 15th century mindset and remember that most everything was explained as God willed or due to sin.
Damn you Philippa Gregory! I have had this book for months and just now getting to it. Only 119 pages in of 1021, and already so drawn into this story. Gregory is an auto-buy author for me and I have never been disappointed. Nuns in a convent, a Pope‘s inquisitor, mysterious rantings, possible stigmata.....sort of a 13th century mystery novel. I see some late nights ahead.
The minute I heard this book was about John Milton, I had to read it. I had no idea that a lot of the events in this book are actually true accounts. True works of Galileo and other famous naturalists who risked trying balance science and religion in their society.
Why did no one tell this was another cliff-hanger?!?!? I have to wait until Saturday for book 2 to come from Amazon. Not an action packed adventure, but a slow burning, gut wrenching trek. Love, deception, betrayal and a little magic. Oh man, Lia the MC is so going to put her foot in some asses in the next book!
Probably should have waited to read this one when it was warm out. The whole book pretty much takes place climbing a mountain and the ice, snow, frostbite and cold just made me shiver the whole way through. Lots of adventure, magic and close calls. Great surprising ending that is a “cliffhanger” and great set up for the next book.
Victoria Speedwell you are my new hero! Being an outspoken Victorian Lady is one thing, but holy hell the things you say😮. Read this. Find out the entirely inappropriate question she asks in such a lovely English and proper way😂😂
I am my Mother‘s third and youngest. We all have very good Catholic names. For some reason she never picked out a name until after I was born. Therefore, I was “baby Jane” until she did. Monica Jane is what I ended up with, after St. Monica. I just added the initial of my maiden last name (D) and Owens for my married name. My love of reading is the greatest gift my Mother could ever give me💕
Started and finished in one sitting today. Not a bad story, but I was a bit bored. I guess because it is about Blackbeard, I was expected more “piratey” stuff to go on. However, it is the story of how Blackbeard came about. More romance than I normally like, but overall not bad. Will read the next book.
Faeries, fighting, a little romance, pain, acceptance and a lot of ass kicking. I loved that there is always something happening in this story, no downtime ever. I would love to have a honey loving little faery who mends my clothes. I am going to assume (HOPE) there is going to be another book based on how the story ended on a cliffhanger which made me say more than a few curse words😂😂
WOW! This book has me a bit scared. The premise of never having to die and there is nothing new to learn freaks me out. Society has had to create groups of people who must fill a quota to randomly kill people for population control is even scarier. I am not sure which scares me more though, being told I was to be killed or to have to be the killer😳😳😳.
Pretty good adventure. I spent more time being mad at the MC father for being an opium addicted, grief stricken ass though. That part got better be the end, but the storyline got a little hokey-weird for me. Ultimately, time traveling sea farers was pretty good though. I will read the sequel just to see where they go from here
I am really liking the MC in this story. She is smart, snarky and generally not afraid to do what she must. My only issue is that I cannot get over what a douche-canoe her father is and why she keeps catering to him and his opium addiction.
I started this one Sunday and finished Tuesday morning. Thank goodness Amazon prime has all three books you can read for free. I get to work an hour early so I can sit in my car and read this series. What will happen to my life when I have read them all??😣. I love these people, I need them around forever. Book two is breaking my heart. Please send help, I am a YA junkie now😂😂
Another reason why I️ love my new job. The pampering we get for being Monday and the weather is crappy. Mimosas and donuts in the AM. Spoiled rotten I️ am🤗
I️ know who I️ am going to blame for this late night. Any book that can leave you speechless (book two) is a MUST read for me. I️ just started book one this afternoon and I️ am wondering if sleep or work are now just overrated activities😂😂 @SassenachTheBookWizard
Might as well start my first chunkster of the new year now. I️ have quite a few of them on the pile. Attempted to remove that stupid sticker but it is just tearing. Pisses me off to have a book ruined like that😡
First book down for 2018. That means $2 into the jar. I️ was really enjoying the science of this one. The MC has an eidetic memory and I️ really liked how he describes recalling stuff. The last third of the book however went totally “Men in Black” and kind of ruined the story for me. Overall, not a bad book though. I️ only give it 3 ✨
One last book down for 2017! I️ loved this story. All the 80‘s references and adventure. Hit every geek button I️ have and am proud to have. Great lessons on friendship, trust and doing the right thing in the face of adversity. Will be a definite reread
Maybe because I️ was a kid of the 80‘s and can relate to all things 80‘s referenced. Whatever it is, I️ have been hooked since page 1. Wish I️ had another day off so I️ could finish it.
It must be “ticked off Tuesday” or something. These are the type of days I️ wish I️ stayed home in bed rolling around in all my books. Please be kind to your customer service people, we don‘t control every situation and cussing us out will not make it happen any faster. Okay, my small rant is over. Hope you are all having a great day 🤗
This is Murphy....or his nickname, “The Attention Whore”. He must be able to touch me with his paw when going to sleep at night. He is my baby💕
WOW WOW WOW!! This is so overwhelming. Tea, books, a cookbook, beautiful handmade bookmarks, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, soap, pineapple chapstick, sticky notes and tabs, magnet and some yummy Hawaiian mixes. The card was so nice. Yes, everything arrived safe and sound. So very thoughtful of you to do all of this, thank you. Off to make some yummy tea and look at recipes💕
