Well, I gave up! If I hadn't watched the show 5 times...I probably could've finished it. So, I need to know where to start reading. I've watched 5 seasons so I guess book 6???

My great uncle used to book entertainment for the troops during the war, one of those acts was Bob Hope. I had a letter that he wrote my uncle and pictures of them together but someone stole them years ago. 😢

Eggs Oh no! Mr Hope brought tons of smiles and levity to many soldiers 2w

I loved this series so much that I named my dog Aurora Jie-Lin! Lol I ended up listening to the audiobook because I (flex) didn't wanna read my autographed copy. Unfortunately, I don't always enjoy the audio as much as the book. (Because I have a hard time paying attention) I give 4/5👽

I wouldn't say I got lost in the faerie tale like usual...maybe it was the drug use or the mother who was sleeping with her daughter's boyfriend. I didn't get into it until the very end. It was an acceptable story. Is that bad?? Lol

Its a hard bail for me...I hated how it was like short stories put together... When we got to the princess whom lost her kingdom because a man raped her, I bailed! I should've started with the blood of elves. Since I have the first 3 witcher books, I will try book one.

ChaoticMissAdventures I don't blame you, I am beyond ready for the end of rape as a plot device. 1mo

Well, it was better than the last one. I have a lot of obvious questions that don't make sense in this series... Like if she always has black hair, how do her past people know its her with her bleached hair?? I don't really need answers lol just need to be entertained...and this book did that. 😊
