whatsjennareading @GypsyKat I think there are like 12 of them!! 😬 2y
swishandflick There are 8 in the series currently, but they're all super lengthy so they'll keep you busy for quite a while! They've also done a great job adapting then for the TV show so you should check that out after you've read it 😄 (edited) 2y
whatsjennareading @swishandflick good to know. Thank you!! 2y
new2kindle Just finished season 1 of the show which I loved so am tempted by the books but they look very lengthy so would be interested to know if they are page turned or a bit of a slog. Hope you enjoy though ☺ 2y

You guys. This book is absolutely terrible. It had so much promise but the execution was awful. The sex scenes alluded to being kinky without ever actually describing them. Just a lot of, "are you angry with me daddy?" GAG. The concept of a super smart house was so neat but it was like the most insignificant detail of the story. The author puts like 15 smoking guns on the table and then WALKS AWAY FROM THE TABLE. Don't waste your time with this.

TrishB I've always avoided this one - will keep avoiding! 2y
missarixreads Bummer 😕 just got this on a kindle deal 2y

Oh my heart. This book. THE FEELS. I went in expecting a run of the mill YA love story and was so surprised with what I got. This book is unique and wonderful and thought provoking and beautiful. The audio version is 👍🏻👍🏻. I grabbed this from Overdrive on a whim and I'm so very glad I did.

Reading this book is like curling up in your most comfortable reading spot, wearing soft snuggly clothes, while drinking hot chocolate by a fire on a cold drizzly day. It is perfection. I've enjoyed everything I've read by Maggie Stiefvater, but this is hands down my favorite.

rubyslippersreads I need to move this up my TBR list. 2y
whatsjennareading @rubyslippersreads if you like audio books, I highly recommend that format for this one! 2y

I am sad to be finished with this final installment of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series. I fell in love with these characters and the worlds they live in. Can't wait to check out the rest of Laini Taylor's work! If you enjoy audiobooks, I recommend the narrator for this one.

Yeah_I_Read I loved listening to these on audio! 3y

I loved this book so much that I listened to it twice. The narrator is wonderful, the characters are witty and relatable and I really enjoyed the family dynamic that Simon had with his parents and sisters. I'll ship Blue and Jacque forever. 😍

Boy Meets Boy | David Levithan

Ok. I started this one on audio and so far I HATE it. As an LGBT YA romance, this is totally in my wheelhouse. I can't tell if I'm just not feeling the narrators or what. Did anyone else feel this way? Does it get better or should I bail?

BookMusings Haven't read this one, but his Two Boys Kissing is really good 3y
whatsjennareading @BookMusings thank you! I'll check it out. 3y
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I loved the print book but haven't tried the audio! A bad narrator can totally ruin it. 3y
whatsjennareading @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I'll have to try it in print. The narrator was so campy it almost felt mocking if that makes sense. 3y
