Finished this reread 😍
I‘m still trying to sort through my thoughts on this book. On one hand it had some very good strong characters both male and female and a good message of seeing the world from a different perspective or whatever. And it was an enjoyable enough read. However, it somehow fell flat somewhere? I guess my biggest problem was the predictable plot and romance. It felt like the characters were pushed together and that is never a good sign.
1. Tagged book is current but right behind it I have Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Caraval
2. Moon Eyes- I'm going off the idea that titles invoke certain moods of the story
3. Jasmine because it smells so freaking good and to this day I'm still hunting for a Jasmine scented candle
I've been waiting for Friday since Monday! It's been a loooong week
1. Fever series. Never tire of it.
2. Nope. It's a long weekend though so I'm sure I'll find something
3. Discovered this with #newyearwhodis and LOVED it! Dying for the next book
4. Not a trick but I retain a LOT of useless facts. Mostly about celebrities. So much useless information 🤔
So my plan for the night was to enjoy a nice, long #bookandbath but apparently (I found out too late) we have NO HOT WATER. Wait and see if it was just a$$hole kids emptying the tank or if there is a problem I guess. In the meantime, I guess I'll wrap up on the couch with a #bookandblanket instead 😑
At least the book is a good one
I only got to 4 books on the list but they were great ones! I fully intend to continue all the series. There are also a few of the books I didn't get to that I am still looking forward to reading. Tagged book is next!
You always pick great matches @monalyisha Thanks for being your kick ass self! Look forward to next time 😊
@InBooksILive Thanks for the awesome list! I found some new favorite authors 👍
Omg this book! I am in love with this book! This was my first book by Mary but as I read Dance of Thieves, I very quickly became a huge fan! I love her writing process, I love how the stories come to her & the characters write the books. Her writing is beautiful & I was hooked the whole way! Every single one of the huge cast of characters has their own personalities, are relatable in some way & have their special roles to play to the story.
Started this yesterday, ready to get stuck in ❤️📚
This was a great start to a new series, set in one of my favorite literary worlds. I enjoyed sneak peeks into the lives of the characters of The Remnant Chronicles, but loved this cast of new characters. This is my favorite kind of fantasy. Adventure, bad ass heroines, intrigue and kissing.
My #septemberTBR is really just my library hold list.
It is bliss to return to the Remnant Chronicles world. Of course, I wished it was another installment of the original characters but they are in there (briefly) so you do get a very small amount of post-“The Beauty of Darkness” update. Lia and Rafe‘s outcome is not revealed until the book is almost over. This story is great too! I love the new characters and I can‘t wait for the next installment!
My 1st #uppercasebox 😊 such a cute box and this book! I have been wanting to read this book since I first heard about it and could not wait for it to come out! Kind of glad I didn't buy it right away because it wouldn't of been signed like this one is. The necklace they included that goes with the book is so cool, too! #booksubscriptionbox #bookmail #danceofthieves #august2018
@wanderinglynn here's the Uppercase box 😊
So this is my box for August from UppercaseBox. They are a subscription book service for YA books. Obviously, the box is not just about the book. You receive bookish items and a bookmark with page prompts for logging on to their website for additional interactive features.
I‘m very excited about the book. Fun to have a signed book as well. That‘s a first for me!
Trying another subscription service in September b4 deciding if I want to commit!
I‘m so excited to read both of these books. I have Catwoman on the way. Between this week and last week, I kind of went crazy on buying books. August has a ton of good looking releases.

One of my biggest pet peeves is not reading a series in order... this is described as the first in a series, but is set in the same world as a previous trilogy... and at first I debated setting it aside to read that first because I felt a little lost... and then I got completely caught up and enthralled!! I loved this one and definitely will be reading the first trilogy! I can‘t wait for the sequel to this one! Great characters- and relationships!
I‘m late to the mama‘s day party but #HappyMothersDay to all those of you act the role of mom or mama in any shape or form! 😽💓 I spent it all day with my one and only 10-year old Roman (altho I‘m a stepmom too), and we went to a #booksigning - perfect, right?! Authors were Maurene Goo, Taran Matharu, Tricia Levenseller, Mary Pearson, all here at #Seattle‘s awesome UW Bookstore 👍🏼 @aeeklund YOU DID FAB 😊 Then we watched ANOTHER Avengers flick
And here I thought my moderating duties were done for the season! After a YA panel at Emerald City Comicon and an evening with Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff earlier this month, I was asked to moderate the Fierce Reads Spring tour when it blows through Seattle in May. I‘ll be up to my elbows in Mary E. Pearson, Taran Matharu, Maurene Goo, and Tricia Levenseller books if anyone needs me! #booksellerlife
