AlexandraGriffin @Magoo the A Court of Thorns and Roses series is a bit mature for teens, but I'd hesitate to call it "adult". I think a young adult category that's like 18-24 would be the perfect category for this series. 7y
the_book_wench @Magoo I agree completely with @GriffinAndHerBooks ! Definitely sits on the fence between the too! 7y
the_book_wench @Literati86 I LOVED IT! I devoured it in a day! 7y

The series gets a lot of flack but I think it's pretty great for what it is. Paolini was young when he wrote it, but hey, he was passionate about something and stuck with it! I am excited for book five to come out in the coming years.

BookFreakOut Is there seriously a book 5?!? I thought they were done! I made it through 3 and liked them, just took too much time to reread with so many years between books being published. 7y
the_book_wench @BookFreakOut he's mentioned it several times on his FB page. Hems working on it or has just finished the first draft. I don't know much about it, like if it's an immediate continuation or years later, etc. 7y

The Silkworm | Robert Galbraith
Pickpick

A fantastic follow-up to the first Cormoran Strike novel. The stakes are higher, mystery is deeper, and Cormoran and Robin are even better than before! Maybe I am biased (I definitely am) but I don't think I could ever disliked anything Rowling writes, even if she puts it under a pseudonym.

DesireeFromBK I've been meaning to check out these sequels. I loved Cuckoo's Calling. 7y

The Cuckoo's Calling | Robert Galbraith
Pickpick

I really enjoyed this book. I think J. K. (Ahem, Mr Galbraith) does a fantastic job of characterization and really making you understand the character in ways some authors can't. The mystery was great and hard to guess, and I love not being able to guess the mystery. Cormoran's a great character!

Imagineannie I loved this and the other two. Isn't it nice to know there's more? 7y

TheNextBook Strike is such an amazing characters. All of this books have been really good. I also love that Rowling decided to go with the psuedonym of Galbraith. It feels right. 7y

When my mother passed away, I read this passage at her funeral because it spoke to me and the relationship we shared. I will always love my mother and I will always love this book. The quote starts with "I come from a place..." and ends with "Yes, my mother was like me."

I'll admit I watched the show first for at least year and a half before I picked up the books. When I read the first one, I loved it!! Martin does such an amazing job of creating such a vast and nuanced world. I read the book almost a year and a half ago and I still think about it quite often!

Fangirl: A Novel | Rainbow Rowell
Mehso-so

Okay, so this will probably be an unpopular review, but I didn't care too much for this book. I liked the idea of it, but I could not relate to the main character at all - even though I really should. I spent most of my time rolling my eyes at her and wishing she's stop being so whiney and selfish.

the_book_wench I still want to read Rowell's other books though. 7y
EliseWhitmore @the_book_wench If you haven't yet read Eleanor & Park I would highly recommend it. But, I really liked Fangirl, so... 7y

annzah I didn't like it much either - but loved Eleanor and Park and enjoyed Attachments also. Fanfic isn't my thing, never was, and I really struggled with those parts of Fangirl. 7y
the_book_wench @annzah the thing is I love Fanfiction. I've read it and written it so you'd think I would love this book. But I know you can't turn Fanfiction in for a class assignment among other things. Pretty sure I yelled out "are you serious right now?!" in exasperation at least twenty times while reading. 7y
BookFreakOut My old roommate hates this book with a fiery passion for the same reasons. I've sworn it off based on that, because, you know, solidarity. 7y
PrezBookster I felt the exact same way! The reason I couldn't finish it!! 7y
ferienuk I really like Fangirl, but I liked it better the second time when I skipped all the Simon parts. I didn't like Eleanor and Park though, I didn't like Eleanor as a person 7y

The book was good because it put an interesting spin on the 1001 Nights. Like others have said on here, I was not swayed by the instantaneous transition from hate to love. It didn't feel authentic and plausible. The story, however, was enough to carry it along and I am still glad I read it.

anneofgreentables Sounds good, but I have to finish 1001 nights first🙂 7y
melrailey This story snuck up on me. I listened on audio and for the first hour or so I wasn't really paying attention. Then I noticed that I was just listening to the book and nothing else. I was all caught up in it. 7y

The author made all of the female characters the epitome of stereotypes and it was very hard to feel anything about the book except readiness to finish. I did sympathize with the main character toward the very end, thus the so-so rating. Great concept, but I didn't care for the execution.
