Marissa Meyer has quickly become one of my favorite authors!💗💗💗 Alice in Wonderland has always been my favorite book and I love retellings of classics/fairytales. This book just NAILS both! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 I cannot recommend this enough!!!

tnorris @Jess_Read_This ❤️❤️❤️ do it!! You won't regret it. She is such a clever writer and stays true to Wonderland and all it's riddles and wacky characters. 3y

I just watched the book trailer for this. I'm curious how you guys feel about book trailers. I'm torn on them. On one hand it's a cool way to learn what the book is about, but on the other hand, I enjoy picking up the book to read the back or inside cover, or hoping onto GoodReads. I don't know... very torn and more often than not, I don't watch them.

I normally wouldn't choose this type of book (give me sci-fi/fantasy/psychological thrillers) but I'm trying to read beyond my norm. This books was actually very good. Beautiful. The characters are engaging and well developed. There was enough in the story to keep me interested and invested in the characters. It is definitely a slower pace than I'm use to, but I enjoyed it! 😊⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

First Comes Love | Emily Giffin

Sometimes I get into a really dark genre mood and need something semi chick-lit/light/sister-ish to bring me out of it. At least until I inevitably jump right back in because I LOVE IT! This one was great and delivered. It's about two sisters and their lives 15 yrs after the loss of their brother and how it's affected their lives. Sometimes I did want to reach in to shake them, but as someone who's lost a sister, I also get it. Overall ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Glad I'm listening to this again because I've forgotten so many details! I loved the first one, but this second book is a struggle for me....so many excessive storylines/details I'm not seeing why it's necessary. And I'm not sure if it's the narrator or the writing, but it's coming across very "I'm an amazing writer, don't you agree ??" I've listen to this narrator many times and usually I love him. Hoping it gets better!

Maike Had the same trouble with this one! I just hope City of Mirrors is as good as the Passage 😬 3y
Anton I really struggled with The Twelve, and my wife gave up on the audio halfway through. 3y
TheNextBook I feel like this series has to be read back to back. I re-read the first two books before getting to The City of Mirrors. They all feel so different. Passage more horror, The Twelve more sci-fi and The City of Mirrors a mix of both. Definitely a good series but The City of Mirrors was very different in writing and style. It was good but at times almost felt like a different author. 3y
tnorris @TheNextBook I completely understand! I feel like the writing between the first and second are so different. Maybe because he took so many years to write each book? His style developed and changed a lot. I'm hanging in though! 💪🏼😆 3y
ScrappyMags I wasn't crazy about the second one either 3y
