Out of all the books that I've read that start with A, my favorite has been The Aurora Cycle. I even named one of my dogs Aurora lol.
What is your favorite book that starts with A??

Tough one right off the bat. Several good letter A's, including the entire Aurora Cycle trilogy. All three Aurora books could be in this spot.

This was funny. I loved the audio, performance was fantastic. As usual I wanted more of a build up between Kal and aurora. UT that YA. I do like how there was loss.

A fun YA sci fi book. It has quite a few YA tropes but I felt that they were handled well and added to the story rather than detracted from it

Looking forward to the rest of the series

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I really enjoyed these. So much snarky banter; I was totally here for it 😂 4mo

This book exceeded all of my expectations and more. It was a fun and surprising emotional romp through and well developed and original futuristic space world full of the brightest and most lovable characters. The found family aspect was by far my favorite part.
And the ending!!!!

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 1/2

Painted a simple little suncatcher while listening to Aurora Rising. I was on the fence about how I felt about this book at first, but the loveable characters have won me over. I think the narrators' excellent voices have made me enjoy this story more. I started out reading it and it was okay, but the audio is a delight!

I finished this book yesterday. It‘s definitely full of aliens, space travel, powers and conflicts! Start of another great series by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. My local library has the 2nd book on the shelf so I am going to check it out just to see what it looks like. #21 #BookSpin #21 #AlmostAChunkster (473 pages) #BFC22 #SERIES2022 #Buzzwordathon #MarvellousMarch #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Dahlia #Galaxyathon

I went to the library to pick up a couple books I had on hold for book club and decided to look around while I was there. I might have gotten carried away. 😂📚

LiteraryinLawrence A similar thing happened to me this week! I came up to the circulation desk with 2 books to them also check out the 5 books on reserve for me. The librarian said something like “Oh good, you found more!” and I don‘t even think she was being sarcastic. 😋 7mo
Nelnjali @LiteraryinLawrence Love it! I don't think I ever grew out of the kid who'd come home with piles of books from the library by maxing out the number I could get. The books I read nowadays are just a lot bigger and more time consuming. ;) 7mo

Not my usual genre, I found this a fun, unpredictable read. It‘s full of sass, character development and space. Lots of space.

Kaufman and Kristoff are quite clever in how they address some aspects that are plot holes and ignored in other stories I‘ve read - like how everyone seems to speak English.

At points each of the characters annoyed me, and then I realised it was a clever ploy for development.

Highly recommend!

GondorGirl This was a really fun series. Nothing earth shattering, but really fun! 8mo

I finished my first #NewYearWhoDis book from @TheAromaofBooks list. This was a pretty decent book. I enjoyed the plot but I wished the characters were more developed. The audio production was excellent. It had a full cast. I rate it 3.5 ⭐

So much fun! These authors can do no wrong.
#pantone2022 #pop22 #popsugar - a book with a protagonist who uses a mobility aid.

tokorowilliamwallace It's so weird and disorienting looking back on some of these now very popular and trendy authors' (which I hadn't read) backlogs. I guess that's part of the fun of it, just like with genre and era music and the slow shift of musical expression and taste. How do you even find books with such specific themes? I don't imagine synopsis blurbs really cover these kinds of things. That it's mostly what you discover while reading? 9mo
BookBelle84 @tokorowilliamwallace sometimes books I read end up falling into a prompt which is convenient. For more difficult prompts goodreads has a group that people can post their suggestions and that's how I got this one. 9mo

The authors of this YA book have definitely seen the original Star Trek series. There‘s Star Fleet Academy- I mean Aurora Legion- a military school whose graduates fly spaceships - they‘re good looking, super skilled and annoyingly hormonal.But the adventure is interesting so I have already started book 2 ( thanks to Kindle) I wish there was an OK rating in between Pick and So-so

Snuck one last book in for September last night. I was surprised at how quickly I was sucked into this story but I totally loved it!! The characters are fun and snarky but not perfect, the plot was intriguing, and the world-building explanations felt organic to the story. I'm excited for book 2 and super annoyed that book 3 doesn't come out until November!!!!

Currently reading the 1st book in the AURORA CYCLE! 🪐☄️🛸🚀👽 I had been hesitant to read this because I was spoiled a character death before going into it 💀not to mention I just received Aurora Burning on hardcover and, well, let‘s just say the back cover has no consideration over people who don‘t wanna be spoiled. So IF YOU OWN AURORA BURNING ON HARDCOVER…DO NOT LOOK AT THE BACK!
Anyway I‘m loving AR so far… 37% through!

jeannasser @persephone1408 Oh no!! 😭 now I know not to look at the back cover for those books 😊 Yes I‘m enjoying this way more than I thought I would!! A lot of people on goodreads keep saying the characters are flat but I love them all 😭😭especially Finian, Kal, and Auri! The story gets more insane the more I read and that‘s what I love about a good page-turner. Fast paced sci-fi action is always my go-to genre! 13mo
jeannasser @WJCintron if it‘s not the flap…it‘s the mini blurb they put on hardcovers 🤦🏻‍♂️ 13mo
persephone1408 I LOVE the characters so much (I named my newest dog Aurora Jie-Lin) I've never read anything like it before & I got into it VERY QUICKLY. My favorite characters are Kal & Finian. 13mo
