Such a pretty book! The inside is creepy, though... On page 125 and it's giving me eerie vibes!

A magical Victorian esque world full of sorcerers and monsters? Loved it! The MC is kind of bland but I do feel for her. Love the plot, love the world, it was enough for me to have a blast reading this!

Shaunesay I do love that cover! 6y

Perfect description of the anxiety I feel in crowds. I don't want anyone to die of the plague though. No need to be dramatic, Henry 😋

Amazing book! I didn't know much about it when I started it but I was swept away. The magical realism, the romance, the flaws and humor that created really balanced, likable characters. Emotionally complex and adorably funny. Really great read!

This is newest to my collection of favorite literary quotes. So empowering! I have it written in my daughter's bathroom, I think it sends an important message that I hope they absorb. #24in48 #readathon #sarahjmaas

I have feelings! But there's too many to sort through. On one hand, Jonas is an awesome character. On the other hand, the ending...it's one of those thinkers that's gonna stay with me awhile. #24in48

Amazing! I love the flawed characters and the badass moments, especially because there's so many tender moments as well. This is page-turning and heart stopping! Wish I had volume 6 handy... #24in48

This is an interesting story. Yes, it's romance. There's the cheesey insta-intense-fate love thing. There's the overly dramatic villain. There's the girl that needs saving. I hate all those things, but I still liked this book. The main characters are likable.The over arching story beyond just the romance is compelling. I liked the quotes and the art. It added more depth to what could have been a very flat story. #24in48

#24in48 I'm ready with breakfast. Snacks are important for reading, keeps the energy up. But mostly I'm here for the coffee. At all times coffee. ☕️

saguarosally Yes, my favorite snack this weekend is hunting coffee! 6y

This is an amazing fairytale! I hesitate to even call it a retelling because it's obviously inspired by Sleeping Beauty and Snow White but is so different that it's definitely a new story all on its own. The art is gorgeous and creepy where it needs to be. I enjoyed it very much, as I knew I would! That's why I chose it to begin the Readathon this weekend. First hour of #24in48 complete and perfect!

elkeOriginal Such a good choice to start the #readathon! 6y
