I enjoyed this a lot - introspective heroine, more politics than than battles, making tough calls. I'm still confused by the setting though... It's very medieval, but it's supposed to be set in the future??? Transportation is all horses and carts, but there's a JK Rowling shout out? I don't understand that choice..it doesn't seem to add anything. Maybe it will come later? Does anyone have any insights?
I really enjoyed this book the concept was just awesome and all,but it totally lacked in something.So first of all I just adore Kelsea as a main character she loves to read and hates the idea of burning books,which I also hate as well.But everyone ships Pen with Kelsea but I hardly know nothing about him at all,I need to learn more about his personality in the second book,Overall really enjoyed! My Rating-⭐️⭐️⭐️
I tried to read this a few years ago and couldn‘t get into it. This time, however, I enjoyed it much more! The story follows Kelsea on her journey to take her rightful place as the Queen of the Tearling. But people, including her own uncle, have a vested interest in not letting her rule and will stop at nothing to make sure she never makes it to the throne. I definitely enjoyed it enough to want to read the sequel
#Day 8 in the #BookFitnessChallenge @wanderinglynn
I made my target steps by a hair. The distance walked was 3.99 miles. I would like to do at least 4 miles everyday despite my goal being 8K steps. I think I'll start working on picking up the pace some.
For my audiobook part of the challenge I am continuing with The Queen of the Tearling (tagged).
#BookFitnessChallenge @wanderinglynn #Day6
Today's total walking time and I finished book 4 in the MurderBot Diaries Exit Strategy. I was able to just start the Tagged book before I had to quit and fix dinner.
Happy Sunday Littens! Over the weekend I finished Good Omens (loved it) then started and finished The Rules of Magic in one day (really loved it). Reviews forthcoming for those! Now I‘m diving into The Queen of the Tearling. I tried reading this a few years ago and got about 100 pages in, but it just didn‘t grab me. This was my pick for Transfiguration in the #OwlsReadathon2019 so here‘s to hoping I like it this time around 😂
I FINALLY FINISHED A BOOK!!!! This one took me forever to finish but not because it was bad. I just couldn‘t get myself to read for some reason. I enjoyed the beginning of this world and the action of the story. I have already downloaded the next book but have another to read first. 4🌟
So I actually liked Kelsea way more than I did in my past reads of this. It just dawned on me that this book is actually quite big and yet I still feel like it's quite a fast read. My favourite part is her relationship with the guards and her absolute stubbornness. She knows what's wrong and right and that she's gotta be ready to anger the status quo. Also, her having struggles with her weight is so damn relatable to me rn
⭐️⭐️. The story was good but there were several things that bothered me.
1. Do we really need to be that vulgar? You can get your point across without vulgarity. This ruined the whole book for me.
2. This author has an agenda. It was very blatant what they thought of church and state. This was a fantasy but I could pinpoint all of this author‘s political views.
3. Is in the comments.
I loved this! I thought the first part of the book was a bit long but it didn't matter because the rest of the story was so strong. Many of the characters had to make tough choises between the right and wrong. This story has many interesting characters. These kind of stories always make me think if worse comes to worst could real people make the right choises? Could they really be as courageous as charcters in books or movies? 🤔
Engaging, I really enjoyed the plot, I immediately reserved the next two at my library. The only thing i struggle with is wrapping my head around the time period. Neo-feudal setting, that's also post-modern European. There is mention of the Harry Potter series, as well as Shakespeare and LOTR. It's a bit strange, but I'm looking forward to the rest of the story.
Finally reading this.
Reading good books and writing have been gobbling up my free time. Don't have time for reviewing.
For those of you who listen to audiobooks, do you listen at regular speed or faster?
1. Yes! Gotta get the right edition for the best cover!
2. Yes. This time of year, I keep insect repellent spray by the door. 😋
3. I like to finish the chapter, but life gets in the way sometimes.
4. I use bookmarks. I used to dog-ear when I was a kid, but at some point it started to bug me.
5. Thanks for fun questions, @SilversReviews
Day 3 of #readingresolutions by @Jess7 is #bookandbeachtowel
I stole the pic off google, I‘m not one for beaches.
Having said that, the tagged book was one I read last year on a beach in Turkey. It was glorious 😊📚☀️🏝
Thanks for doing this #mymistake giveaway @Karkar !! It was hard choosing a fav book but I decided on this one 😁 There's two more books in this series that I also loved
I would like The Ghost Bride if I won 😊 It's on my tbr

Morning reading and morning Pat's with Mx.Mouse.
The best way to start the day is coffee and a good book. The first hour of work we are allowed to listen with headphones, and it's helped me plow through some books lately. Book six in two weeks.
I listened to this on audiobook and LOVED it! It took me a bit to get into the narrator, but she definitely grew on me. 4/5 🌟Starting the second book on audio now. 🤗
Notes: First fantasy novel I have read in at least 5 years. Themes from this book showed up in my dreams several nights in a row, very rare for me.
The author is genius; sure to have a loyal following when the heroine queen is a plain, pudgy girl that loves to read (and therefore intelligent, with a mind of her own). She has probably described a large portion of her readers. I was swept along on this tale, a fun read with plenty of suspense.
HOME STRETCH!! 🎉🎉🎉Pretty sure I will finish this today whilst cleaning the house. I‘ve been chipping away at this since sometime last year, listening whenever I had a chance. It took me much longer than anticipated, but I‘m loving this book. I have the sequel on audio, as well, and that will be up next.
