1. I want to go to Prague SO BADLY and it‘s all this book‘s fault!
2. Cloudy and rainy, my favorite
3. We went out to eat before a movie and he left his wallet on top of his car. He was double pissed over the fact that I brought money AND for the audacity of paying for tickets. 🙄😒
4. I have one cat I chose (Hansel Apple Shadeslayer) and one that chose me (Lee) and two that are kinda just there (Gretel, Carlos). Sarge is our dog.

This book is enthralling. I absolutely love a fantastical story and this one brings your imagination to life. It awakens a childlike wonder and stirs a comradery in you like no other. Go Zel go! I cant wait to see how it ends. And I really hope they do it justice in the movie.

No witches lurked at crossroads disguised as crones, waiting to reward travelers who shared their bread. genies didn‘t burst from lamps, and talking fish didn‘t bargain for their lives. In all the world, there was only one place humans could get wishes. Brimstone‘s shop. And there was only one currency he accepted. it wasn‘t gold or riddles, or kindness, or any other fairytale nonsense, and no, it wasn‘t souls either.

It was teeth 🦷

Today‘s #colormepretty is #analogus!

DOSAB has remained one of my favorite series over the years.

American Gods was AMAZING and I can‘t wait to read the sequel.

These Broken Stars was interesting and then it got weird, which is fine, but it‘s not my favorite.

The Selection is a very good series that tapers off at the end, but is a good light read.

Of course I love HP, but with the author going wild, it‘s no longer one of my favorite series.

i-am-papercrane Heir of Fire was another book I enjoyed. The Fallen was....not the best book, and I never went past the first book in that series. I read The Maze Runner while reading the Lord of the Flies and the similarities were too much. I never finished that series either. Insurgent was a huge letdown after Divergent and I quit 30% through Allegiant. Reawakened and Colleen Houck should be avoided at all costs. 5mo

I heard a lot of good reviews on this book so I decided to check it out. However, it just wasn't for me. The book starts off pretty interesting but once she meets Akiva, that's when I started to lose interest.

Written very unconventionally... I loved it! The almost skewed storytelling of the book created mystery that led to an awesome plot-twist ending. I picked up this book a long time ago, just putting it off because I though I'd hate it (don't know why), but against all odds this book became a pick for me. I would definitely recommend Smoke and Bone, it pulled on my heartstrings more than once and I think it tells a very special and unique story.

Geeklet Sounds very interesting! I‘ll keep an eye out for it. 7mo

After finishing the Strange the Dreamer books, I noticed people kept connecting them to this book. Out of curiosity, and lack of want to leave the world of Strange the dreamer, I decided to read this.
I'm glad I read this book after, because its destroying my ideal of the Seraphim. I feel like this book continued from strange the dreamer and started with " Meanwhile on another plane.."

⭐⭐⭐ I found this story to be told in a disjointed manner. It's okay, but it didn't make me want to continue with the series. The book makes you feel like you already know everything that is going to happen. Parts of it were really good. I liked the descriptions of the chimera, but parts were too melodramatic for me.

Stacy_31 I'm on the fence about this one, too. I have no burning desire to continue to the series. Although I did also like the description of the chimeaera. 9mo

I mostly like this for the fact that it is my favourite angel trope, and the world building is fun. If this hadn't been angels, I think I would have hated this.

Well, this was a convoluted mess. I might have felt differently if I was part of the target audience, but I'm not, and I have neither time nor inclination for the 17-year-old Chosen One reincarnated angel heroine and her nascent efforts to develop a personality.

esurient I recognize my #unpopularopinion here. This series seems to be universally praised. I can barely see the appeal if I squint and turn a bit. 11mo

Last read 2018: Strange the Dreamer. Over a month of bored, skimming text just to finish
First read 2019: Broke my "no paper books in bed" rule and stayed up way too late on a work night because I HAD to finish.
Same author, two very different reads. I think this year is looking up already!
Thanks @erickaa for the awsome #sss book!
