The Assassin's Blade | Sarah J. Maas

So apparently, I have an unpopular opinion, but I really enjoyed this book. Possibly because unlike others, I read this one first. Also, this is my doublespin, so both are already done for February. @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 8h

So Ensnared by A.G.Howard is my bookspin, which I have already finished. It was the last book in the splintered series. My doublespin is the assassin's blade by Sarah J Maas. I hope it makes sense, I have read none of those books lol @TheAromaofBooks

I'm 118 pages in and I just don't like it. Ill get it ready to send off soon. @mrsmarch @ozma.of.oz @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Not every one is a winner 😕 3w
mrsmarch @persephone1408 there were at least two points where I wrote that I couldn‘t figure out why I was still reading but couldn‘t give up. I even said it to my friend too. I was really on the fence about it. 3w
persephone1408 @mrsmarch every time I tried to sit down and read it, I couldn't. I just didn't wanna waste my time when I could be reading something else. 3w

I am so loving this series. I'm learning about some of the Gods that I don't know a lot about. Sadly, I only have a couple more to go. (The library doesn't have all of them)

shortsarahrose Does your library offer interlibrary loan? If they do, you might be able to borrow the other books from other libraries through your library! 3mo
persephone1408 @shortsarahrose Idk I'll have to ask 3mo
shortsarahrose It‘s a great service that a lot of public libraries offer but that a lot of patrons don‘t know about. Some libraries might charge a small shipping fee (mine never charges more than $5). You could also suggest they purchase the other books. Librarians are often pretty open to purchase requests (if reasonable) and since they have others in the series, that‘s a good sign. 3mo

*in best nazaly voice* OH MY GOD its Chandler Bing!
I quite enjoyed this memoir. Folks are apparently freaking out about his comment about Keanu but I could care less. It really felt like Matthew was talking about me. (Except for the alcohol...and the acting) This book is mainly about the big terrible thing and if you don't know already, that's addiction. I just celebrated my 5 year sobriety birthday, & I also quit smoking 3 years ago. ⬇⬇⬇

persephone1408 Continued So yea...I'm fat now lol I recommend this book. To anyone still suffering with this big terrible thing, we can get better, you just have to put in the work. 4🌟 3mo
KristiAhlers congratulations on your sobriety! I know how much work that takes, sadly I lost my sister to her addictions. And it wasn‘t pretty. This one is on my list to read but haven‘t picked it up yet. 3mo
persephone1408 @KristiAhlers thank you and I'm so sorry about your sister. My brother is still in active addiction and there's no way to make someone get better, sadly. They have to want it bad enough. 3mo
See All 7 Comments
KristiAhlers @persephone1408 exactly. She totally gave up when the doctors told her she had to be clean and sober for a year before they could do a liver transplant. They were going to be able to give her meds to get her through it and she said no. She died before she was 45. The book that got me past the “I am soo pissed at you I can‘t think straight or mourn you” phase was Nikki Sixx‘s Heroine Diaries. He helped me to understand possibly where she was 3mo
KristiAhlers Mentally and it allowed me to let go of a great deal of the frustration and anger I was toting around. 3mo
persephone1408 @KristiAhlers they also have al anon which is for families and friends of addicts. 3mo
peaknit I‘m so happy to celebrate your sobriety, it‘s not an easy road, you should be so proud. It works if you work it 😉 I‘m listening to the book and the jury is out for me yet on rating, but I understand the power of addiction and celebrate that for him. 3mo

ShyBookOwl @persephone1408 Seeing yourself in a memoir is such a surreal and affirming experience. I'm not an addict but I was raised by one. I think I'd like to hear his story. I may use tomorrow's audible credit on it 😊 3mo
