House of Leaves | Mark Z Danielewski

Pickpick

Probably the weirdest book I‘ve ever read. I‘m not even sure how to rate it (between pick and so so). For a horror book I‘m definitely not scared, but the book was incredibly unique and I would consider more of an art piece than just a book

suvata Very unique indeed 2y

2. Honestly not much in my neighborhood haha
3. I‘m really scared of the Zizzer Zazzer Zuss character in the Dr Seuss ABC book. Funny cuz horror books and movies don‘t phase me at all

OMG this was so good! I never cry reading books but I was in tears several times at the end. The magic, friendship, and brooding love interest. My poor heart couldn‘t take it!

While I don‘t think anyone will replace Rhysand as my fiction boyfriend (other than Jaimie Fraser) I loved Hunt. Bryce definitely gives Feyre a run for her money though 😆

American Dirt | Jeanine Cummins

I don‘t DNF books but boy did this one temp me. The entire novel was just so boring. The author also chose to write in this omnipotent third person sort of style where I was randomly dumped into people‘s heads. It was incredibly disorienting. The ending was just hot trash. I‘m not even sure what happened and why. The weird sexual relationship with Javier is still not explained to me.

OnlyYoo If you‘re looking for a really good book about immigration crossing look into The Land Of Open Graves. This book definitely gave me a ton to think about 3y

Unfortunately this book will not be getting a rose from me. The book read like a really long buzzfeed article. It had facts interspersed with trying to be relatable (talking about cute dogs and swearing and yaaaasss girl). While I wasn‘t surprised by anything that was “revealed” in the book, it was still enjoyable.

This is just what I needed, a mind candy romance. I was worried I was going to hate it because I think werewolf (really any paranormal) romance is pretty cringe. But I loved this. I loved the main character‘s relationship and their communication skills (I hate miscommunication in romance novels). I‘ll definitely be picking up the next one soon! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It‘s been awhile Litsy! I‘ve just finished the Arc of a Scythe series and I really enjoyed it! Was it the greatest sci-fi? No. But it was still very enjoyable. The last one was def my favorite. It got very intense towards the end and I have very strong feelings. Lmk if you‘ve read this so we can talk in the comments!!

fleeting "Was it a great sci-fi? No." ? 3y
fleeting *the greatest. I'm going to read the trilogy so I'm hoping for the best! I've heard good reviews! 3y
OnlyYoo I really enjoyed the storyline. I wish some things were fleshed out more but that could also be me being nit picky. Definitely 3.5-4/5 series for me 3y

So this book was really weird. Honestly couldn‘t summarize it even if I wanted to. All of the characters were nuts and the ending just wasn‘t satisfying. I don‘t think that everyone is super happy clappy, let‘s sing kumbayah and save the planet. But geez the antagonist‘s reaction was wayyyy over dramatic. Honey, eat a snickers. You‘re not you when you‘re angry

Trying to be aesthetic for once and happened to have some crystals handy 😁 overall this book was ehhh. I didn‘t love it and I didn‘t hate it. It follows the women throughout the generations who inherited the craft. Although all the women had different stories, they all seemed incredibly similar. No one story stood out from the other. They all also lack the proper respect for their mamas. Tsk tsk respect yo mama!
