Have the house to myself for a little while so immediately turned on my fireplace app (really wish it was a real one 😫) and settling in to continue my current read. 😊

This was between a pick and a so-so for me. So-so won out because I was confused a lot of the time. If you can remember at least two names for the same thing and who that person is from several pages ago with only their name as a clue, you‘ll love it. The story was good other than that.

#91 of my year. New goal is 100 by the end of December hehe this year I‘ve read so many great books. I can‘t wait to take an end of year pic of them all on one shelf!

tpixie I remember when this young adult author was on NBC right as this book was going to be published. I wanted to read it then. I better get on with it! 3mo
tpixie Good luck with your goal! 3mo
Caffeinated_Reader @tpixie thank you so much! And yeah I read Priory of The Orange Tree earlier this year so I had to pick up this series. She‘s an amazing writer. So far I‘m invested in this world. It‘s really great so far! 3mo
tpixie @Caffeinated_Reader I better get on it! 3mo
Caffeinated_Reader That was brilliant. It reminded me of The Darkest Minds but with several bad ass twists lol I loved it. Paige is a magnificent character. Warden better keep to the shadows & succeed because I need to see (read about) him in the next two books! 5/5 ⭐️ 3mo

BOOK BARN IN NIANTIC, CT.

Four stores with in a couple miles of eachother. Each one houses different genres. One is outdoors (they have goats!), another has a kitty couch room. One is filled with kids books. Its amazing. Stupid cheap prices, the trade paperbacks were a buck. The others were 4-5 dollars, the YA books were brand new.

This haul was from last year. I can wait to go again this year.

Crazeedi Sounds delightfully wonderful! 6mo

I read this almost 2 years ago when it came in a #Litsygoespostalog rotation and fell in love with it. I wanted to read the whole series and have finally found time to do that.

I decided to re-read this first book and my husband joined in so it was our own little #buddyread 🥰 It was nice having someone to read along with, and he liked it as much as I did. 📚 🤓 💕

Read this a while back but going to start the second one soon. I really like it, although I didn't have much of a clue what was happening for the majority. I think that's the intention really. You really need to be okay with being confused for this one. Overall 8/10

Ok, Sammy --can I call you Sammy? Great---what is this nonsense I hear about you writing a standalone book called 'Priory of the Orange Tree' BEFORE GIVING US A FOURTH BOOK ABOUT PAIGE AND WARDEN!!!!???????? I want--nay, need--the next book in the Bone Season series because the third book was too damn short and left us on pins and needles. I understand the urge to write about dragons (hey, we've all been there) but let's FINISH WHAT WE STARTED!!!!

sammisho Sammy needs to get her priorities straight! 2y
AreeshaBilal I know how you feel 😭 but with all the titbits she's been giving about Priory, I can't help but be intrigued. 2y

Overall I didn't like this book and won't be reading the rest of the series. I don't like when authors make up too many new words for old things. The story itself was readable which made me keep going until the end and then the end was wholly unbelievable. I won't go into it but she had me right until the last five pages and then it didn't ring true. Which made me go back to earlier parts of the story to doubt them.

Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect of this book but it blew me away! I was so caught up and intrigued in this book that I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Only real issues I had was how there was very little explaining in the beginning. It just seemed like you were thrown into the story with no real building up of it first. But after the realization and understanding came there was no stopping! Loved it! ❤ 4.5 out of 5 stars!

Thank you so much @Oryx !!! I don't think I've heard of any of these books, so I'm really excited they could be new favorites. You did some excellent stalking to send me Kvothe, a Harry Potter notebook, and a nonfiction science book. The candy is already mostly devoured, but the notebook is too pretty to write in!
Thanks again @BookishMarginalia for organizing! #halloweengoespostal

This was the July BOTM for the facebook group I co-admin with @noveldescent, and while I didn't actually expect very much from it, I ended up really liking it!

This book has a lot of action and a really fun (albeit trope-y) romance. I will definitely be continuing this series!

sdrosereads I liked, didn't love this one but each book after gets better and better! She's a slow writer though so we'll be waiting awhile to get the next one. 2y

The world of this book is very interesting, complex and unique. The first couple chapters were a bit confusing but after that it was really good! I liked Paige, she was strong, brave and always tried to do the right thing. I was suspicious but liked Warden. I do not like Jaxon at all. I like Nick & Julian as well. The character development was really good too.

Have you read this book? If so what did you think?!
Full review on duskangelreads.com

Yeah_I_Read I really like this series. I feel like for me it was hard to get into at first bc when I read it I was still a bit of a fantasy newbie. I can't wait until the 4th one comes out. Hopefully early next year 2y
DuskAngelReads I had a bit of trouble because of all the terms that were bought up without full explanation. I only found out when i was about halfway in that there was a glossary in the back of the book. Because I was reading on eBook I didn't even know it was there h til someone told me. 2y

The Life & Lit Facebook book group is doing a discussion on this book tomorrow!

I read this a couple weeks ago and loved it so I want to refresh myself (and want an excuse to reread it and pick up the sequel quickly after). I'm going to read as much as I can (if not the whole thing) before the discussion.

brilliantglow One of my favourite series. I'm contemplating reading the third one or waiting for the rest of the series to be published because I just can't handle the cliff hangers. I'll probably end up just reading the third book and then rereading previous books as the next ones are publish hmm... 2y
BookFairyPrincess I need to start this book lol 2y
TheDigressiveApproach I started this because I was intrigued by the blurb. But about 20% through I stopped reading. The pacing was slow for me and the characters quite dry. But I know a LOT of people enjoyed it. 2y

I don't hate this book, but I don't love it. I felt that this book was very slow and hard to connect to characters. However, I think the plot is unique and the world building was done great. I really do want to read the sequel The Mime Order since I want to know what happens next. The last 50-100 pages of this book was great. #review #litsy #adultfantasy #read #bookreview #bookstagram #shelfie #bibliophile #bookworm #booknerd
