Mehso-so

I enjoyed reading this book. It's a lovely, compelling fantasy. Honestly, the only reason I gave it a so-so rating is because I couldn't get into the romance that developes, which pulled me out of the story a little bit. #fantasy #highfantasy #magic

I haven‘t gotten any of my credits for the past #botm I skipped September and October but I still only have one credit, they haven‘t rolled over.

TheLibrarian I don‘t know if they charge you another month if you skip. 1mo
Booknerd222 I thought that your previous credit for the month rolls over to the next month 1mo
DGRachel If you officially skip the month, they don‘t charge you for a new credit and you just have the one credit that carries forward until you use it. I think they did change things so that if you don‘t officially skip, then they charge you and you accumulate credits. 1mo
Booknerd222 I haven‘t gotten any of the rollover credits even though I‘ve officially skipped a few months. That‘s okay though. 1mo

In a lot of ways, this is a beautiful book. Faizal introduces some wonderful imagery as she keeps things personal for her characters, who move through a non-pseudo-European world coping with the loss of magic.

Unfortunately, the story also runs on fairy tale logic and a strong commitment to Show Don‘t Tell. The latter I can get behind; the former rarely works for me. Here, it kept me distanced from the characters, despite their strong stakes.

I did some #audiobaking this afternoon: strawberry bread for my mum and my first-ever burfi for meeeeee! It‘s tasty, but this coconut-heavy recipe doesn‘t have that fudge crossed with shortbread vibe I so value in my burfi. Poop.

I‘m pleased to report I‘m really enjoying WE HUNT THE FLAME now I‘m able to concentrate on it. (I‘ll put an update on the body they found in the golf course under a spoiler tag, since it‘s a major TW situation).

xicanti So, Saturday morning they found a body at the abandoned golf course/park I visit pretty often, which as you can imagine was REALLY upsetting. Today they‘re reporting they suspect no foul play; a young woman went missing on Thursday after she checked herself out of the nearby hospital, and it looks like she completed suicide in the park. 2mo

#BookHaul from #BKBF (Brooklyn Book Fest) today — sans the tagged book which I already had. The author was at a really fun panel and was so kind. Also met N.K. Jemisin who is a total badass. No ARCs tho. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Once again, we've all read this book before BUT it's got a diverse cast and a setting that isn't a magical carbon copy of England. I can appreciate people of South Asian decent and from a Muslim background wanting to see themselves.

The writing strikes me as being very strong for a debut. It's a longer book but the author didn't cheap out on world building, relationships or character development so big props for that

This was an excellent desert fantasy written in an almost poetic manner. The plot was riveting and devastating and the characters were teasing in their slow reveal. It's a compelling story. I can't recommend it enough if you like YA fantasy.

5/5 🌟
This book was an amazing adventure filled with mysteries and actions. Theres a little romance but it's definitely not the main theme of the book. The characters were great and fierce. So much happened in this book and I enjoyed reading every single page.

I read this for my stores YA Bookclub and it did not disappoint! I read it in 2 days— actually I read it up until book club started 😅 I must say, I loved the banter between Altair and Nasir. I‘ll definitely be recommending this to customers looking for a new fantasy read. Also, this was the authors first book 😲 #wehunttheflame #hafsahfaizal #debutauthor #bnyabookclub #yabookclub #fantasy #magic #summerread

This is the best book I have read this year, hands down. It could not have been better. The first act is a bit slow, while the world is developed and the characters are put in place. But once you know everything you need to know, the plot doesn't stop.The magic system was great, the setting exotic, the enemies to lovers romance the best I have ever read.I loved the comraderie between the whole group going on the adventure.The twists were brilliant

rjsthumbelina Picture is of the amazing front cover map! Forgot to mention, I read this as part of the #bnyabookclub, which I am leading at my local store 5mo
Dragonfairykats Gorgeous map! The book sounds really good. 5mo
rjsthumbelina @Dragonfairykats it was sooo good! I cannot even put it into words 5mo
rjsthumbelina Also, this one beat out With the Fire on High for my favorite book of the year. Which was amazing, so that says a whole lot. Very different kinds of YA, but still - THIS BOOK WAS FANTASTIC 5mo

There is nothing worse than that feeling when you have 36 pages left in what is probably the best book you've read all year, and having to go in to work and leave those last few pages in your backpack!!

Alright: between the complex fantasy world, exotic setting, interesting magic, epic adventure, close-knit adventuring gang, slow burn enemies to lovers romance, and roughly 17 twists that I have NOT seen coming - EVERYONE NEEDS TO STOP WHAT THEYRE DOING AND READ THIS BOOK.

wanderinglynn That‘s quite a recommendation! Stacked! 5mo

I am enjoying this book so much now that the adventure part of the plot has started! I will admit, the author took her time setting up the background story and building the intricate world, but with a story like this one, I don't think it could have been done a different way! ⬇️

rjsthumbelina So much rich lore in the world-building, and such an exotic and magical world she has built. I'm super impressed with this debut YA fantasy so far. Reading for the #BNYAbookclub, which happens this Thursday at all Barnes and Nobles! 5mo

Fantasy novel set in a world once ruled by six magical Mothers. Following a tragedy and defeat of the Mothers, their kingdom is left broken. It's up to a new generation of heroes centered around the fierce Zafira also known as The Hunter to make things right. Lots of pro-feminism messages woven into Faizal's world.

I liked this book but did not like it as much as I thought I would. I really love the world that Faizal has built but the characters fell short for me. I did not think that the main character did not have enough traits to make her a believable and she was too one dimensonal. The world and the plot was very Aladdin like which kept me hooked until the end. I only wish I could give this book a higher rating

This book keeps losing my attention and then regaining it, only to lose it again for some reason. It‘s a shame because I was really anticipating his release, especially since it was inspired by Arabic culture and contained an enemies-to-lovers trope.
🌿 I‘m not sure if I just feel this way because I‘ve gone from a really fast paced book to a slow paced one. The beginning with enjoyable but the beginning is just so slooooow.

Silent Book Club time! I wasn‘t going to eat here, but then there was a Filipino food truck. 👀👀👀 In #BFC land, I‘m shifting books in the library, which means walking all over the place and carrying lots of books. I did a bit of yoga at work, but I‘ll do more when I get home, too. #BookFitnessChallenge
