I'm not going to finish off another book today so here's my #NovemberWrapUp

I wasn't in much of a reading mood this month. Pretty sure I'm saving up for #WinterGames 😂 But I still managed to read some pretty great books and a couple ok ones

Letora I see Laurel K Hamilton in there! I used to love her writing. 2w
FantasyChick @Letora I started her books soooo many years ago but never got very far and recently decided to pick them up again. I'm already further along than the first time 😂 The plan is 1-2 books per month and see how far I can get until I tire of the series 2w
Clwojick I can relate to your post. I read less than 10% of my October reading total this past month. I have HIGH goals for December, so I gave myself a bit of a break. Lol 2w
FantasyChick @Clwojick I think October overloaded us with books 😂 Plus I know I have vacation coming up so I need to save my reading mind for that! I plan to do nothing but lay on the couch and read, read, read 😊 2w

Fast-paced, magical romp through an alternate Paris in 1889 with a band of thieves. Easily distinguishable characters - important where there is a cast of 8 or 9, and a good story. Enjoyable

Here's my #WeeklyForecast

I want to finish my #LMPBC reads b/c I'm super behind.
I have to read The Gilded Wolves since I have an arc for the next book.
My #audiobook is in process already. I'll probably switch formats for another book as backup
The Electric Heir is my #NetGalley book for the week.

I stuck pretty well to this last week so hoping for another success!!

@Cinfhen

erzascarletbookgasm Wow, these covers are great! 💫 1mo
Cinfhen Agreed @erzascarletbookgasm and I‘m starting to get #ReadersFoMo / I want to read 1mo
erzascarletbookgasm @Cinfhen I want to read that too! 1mo

I finished this about a month ago and read quite a few books in between (had a run of 3 books in 2 days while getting over a bug) and for the life of me I can‘t remember what it was about.... I do remember being bummed that I have to wait for the sequel and bumping her juvenile series Aru Shah up on my list, but had to google to refresh my memory. So, good reread, but obviously not remarkable.

I enjoyed the world building, I didn‘t mind the slow pace of the plot. I liked the way the characters were slowly drawn and made the reader care. I cared until the author pulled a Joss Whedon right at the end. That is passé and lazy writing in my book. This is taking the easy way to make the hero, why is it always the hero, feel something. That left a bitter taste in my mouth. I probably will not read the next book.

25% to go in this one. It took an unexpected turn. I'm intrigued to see how it will play out. So, i have a kind of categories of my teams... like my spouse team is 🐧, my legacy team is Montreal because I grew up with it. My fling teams are 🍁 and Hawks and there's the team you live to hate.. Capitals. So three of my teams are playing tonight. 😁

writerlibrarian News flash Sidney Crosby is still pretty good at hockey . 1 all in the 2nd. My love to hate team is up 4-2 on the 🍁JakenBake 🚨 so milkshake half price tomorrow in Pittsburgh. 2-1 🐧 it's now tied at 2 with a 🚨 from Nathan. OT in a few minutes. SH 🚨 by Tanev 🐧 win. (edited) 2mo

writerlibrarian Johnny T 🚨 and ties the game at one to open the second period. Marner 🚨 and gets an 🍏 on the third. All this as Kappy is dropped to the third line. Maybe there's a little magic back. The damn broke. 34 🚨 with an🍏 for 16. 4-1 🍁. 4-2 victory for the 🍁 who play in DC tomorrow. (edited) 2mo

Saturday... hockey night in Canada. Opening night. 🐧 are playing at home against the Blue Jackets. 🍁 are at home vs the Habs.
#readingandwatchinghockey

Getting into this one finally.

writerlibrarian Habs drew first blood. Domi 🚨Matthews ties it. That number 4 in 3 games for 34. 3rd line makes it 2-1. 🐧 get on the board at the opening of the second period. 1-0. 🐧 add another one 2-0. Jackets replied 2-1. 🍁 make it 3-1. 🐧 3-1. Sid drops the gloves gets into the 📦 for 5. 🐧 🚨 4-1. Bang bang Letang 🚨 on PP. 5-1. 72 makes it 6-1 with an 🍏 for 87. 🍁 and Habs trade 🚨4-2. Teddy makes it 7-1. 7-2. 🐧 win. (edited) 2mo
CarolynM Penguins are looking better in this game😃 2mo
writerlibrarian @CarolynM Well, it's Columbus and Tortarella. If that didn't fire them up nothing would, Philly doesn't count 😁 2mo
writerlibrarian Gally takes Habs within 1. 4-3. And Price's eyelashes are just... wow. Extreme close up from HNC. Wow, Shea Weber got crosschecked. Someone has a death wish. On PP, Habs get a penalty shot and they 🚨everything tie at 4. All because a young Leaf got chippy with Weber. Habs 🚨 5-4 Habs with less than 5m to go. 34 🚨 and ties it. 5-5 1m30 to go. We are in OT. Price robbed Tavares twice. We're in SO. Price won (edited) 2mo

It's October and 🏒 is finally back. Captain drama in TO. Opening night for the Leafs at home. Oh, how I missed my boys of hockey. #readingandwatchinghockey

writerlibrarian Will 91 come out with the C? Johnny T is the captain. Puck drop now. Ottawa scores and 🍁 are silenced. Freddie the goat ties it. 4th line comes through. 🍁🚨 and pull ahead 2-1. Ottawa ties and then has a 🚨 disallowed. 2-2. 2 on 1 Matthews and Nylander, 34 🚨 3-2. 34 🚨 again on PP. 4-2. First goal for 🍁 young Russian D. 5-2. Leafs win 5-3 (edited) 2mo

I haven't decided what I'll read. Matthews did a really stupid thing. Really stupid. 🙁He's young but Crosby was also young and didn't do something so stupid or he didn't get caught.

writerlibrarian Schultzy shoots, Tanev deflects 🚨 1-0 🐧 Wings tie at the end of 87's penalty. Schultzy helps again on Rusty's 🚨 2-1 🐧 Sid is back in the 📦 well no it's Tanev. Wings tie again on PP. 2-2. 🙁. Another early period 🚨 Simon from Zar 3-2 🐧. 4-2 🐧 87 🚨!!!! Pens win. 😎 (edited) 3mo

1. The Gilded Wolves - just started
2. We were supposed to head to FL for a week's vacation with my parents, but Hurricane Dorian may derail those plans. Will still start tomorrow, but may end up somewhere different.
3. Mint chocolate chip. Or mango sorbet. Or pralines and cream. Mmmmm ice cream!
4. I have a BA in music. Violin is my main instrument, passable at piano and working at ukulele for story time!
5. Will do!

This YA heist falls into that land of “I liked it, but I didn‘t love it.” While it‘s an ensemble cast, the main character is clearly Séverin. That‘s unfortunate for me, because I found him completely unlikable. I also never really found him a believable character. Most of the rest of the cast is a lot of fun, and I‘d gladly follow their stories, but I‘m not interested in suffering through Séverin‘s story for it.

I was excited about this one, but ended up not really feeling it. I never got invested in the characters and all their (way too many) quirks. Most likely will not continue with this trilogy unless desperate for reading material.

Story wise this book had me semi interested, but the characters are what kept me reading. I found each one fascinating and I fell in love with Severin and Tristan (oh Tristan you poor baby boy you) it wasn‘t the best thing I have ever read but I enjoyed the witty dialog. Now to take a much needed break from YA books as they haven‘t been all that great lately for me.
