I loved reading this book. It was so dark and mysterious. I loved the character of Kallia, she was so vibrant and unique. I can‘t wait to see what happens in the second book of the duology. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Whoa, this book was amazing! Solid storyline and lots of intrigue. I particularly loved the way the author portrayed being a performer. Though I wasn't watching a show, I felt like I could feel the energy of the stage

I wanted to love this book but I found it a little boring. I think this could have been amazing but it was lacking in several areas. I don't think the world building was great, Kallia was the same person throughout, she didn't have an arc and nothing was really explained until the end in the cliffhanger which I'm not sure it was enough for me to read the next one. Also some background into her life may have helped. But such a beautiful cover!

4.2⭐️ I have to say, I liked this book more than I thought I would. It was really enchanting with some fun and snarky come back‘s. Beautifully told, beautifully written and almost poetic. I look forward to picking up the next one.

The cover blurb hooked me. It says "Perfect for fans of Moulin Rouge and The Phantom of the Opera"... that's me. ??‍♀️

GondorGirl I listened to the audio of the first book and enjoyed it enough to preorder the second book. 14mo

Another one I never reviewed! This book is about a female magician escaping from her job/home and going to be part of a magic performance competition. It was pretty slow moving, but I really liked something about the way it was written. Intriguing enough that I will read the second book in the duology, if for nothing else than to resolve that cliffhanger!

So I am not sure what to think of this book. I liked it...until the end. I feel like not a single question I had was answered and I am just left extremely confused. Idk if its because I haven't been able to sit down and read for awhile...or if it was just a confusing story. Can anyone explain the ending to me?

This is pitched as Moulin Rouge + Phantom of the Opera. I‘ve seen Phantom on stage twice (thanks, high school French class field trips!) but somehow never saw Moulin Rouge...but it still sounds like a pretty interesting concept! #NowReading

🎧 📚 meh ... I didn‘t think it would ever end. I gave this OwlCrate book away before I finished it today. Excessive descriptive pointless prose. I‘m still asking myself why?! Don‘t listen to me. Maybe you‘ll like it? Summary sounded great. A magician contest where magicians are slowly disappearing?! Sign me up! What a disappointment! I found myself avoiding reading. I felt misled. Read it, let me know what you think! Not for me. ⭐️

Twainy I think one of the worst things you can feel about a book is indifference. I wanted to like this book & that‘s why I stuck it out to the end. It picked up in the last 25% but it was too late to pull me in. Honestly, you may like this book, it just wasn‘t for me. 2y

New rule for myself: I don't have any reason to only do themed readathons within the time constraints. So, I probably will continue to read within themes/prompts for #readathons for the entire month. Like this month's #buzzwordathon #dream and #winterween

This pic sums up how I feel about this book perfectly. I kept sitting on it. I‘d read a couple chapters, get bored and not pick it up again for a couple days. I finally made it to the end and it was an ok book. Nothing to write home about.

What feels like a million years ago but was actually just this past January, I was in Baltimore hanging out at a publishing party and talking to Janella Angeles. I was already enchanted with the cover, and talking to her about the book, bonding over The Night Circus, I decided then and there that I would choose this for our Adult YA book club... so I did.

5th book read for the #OutstandingOctober #Readathon

This book was a slow burn, at times a little too slow for what I was in the mood for, but the magical ambience grew on me and I liked the story. In the end, I gave it 4 stars for atmosphere, though I felt it could have been condensed. I do want to find out what happens next.

Not a lot of reading for yesterday! Our pup isn't feeling right (we think the new food we bought has caused an allergy) so between sleepless nights and a long day at work yesterday, I was lucky to get any reading done at all!

Set in the backdrop of a world where magic can be anything from commonplace to deliriously entertaining, this novel pits magicians against each other in battles of wit, illusion, physical feats, and matters of the heart. The danger in taking the stage is overshadowed by the fill to bewilder, and I cannot wait to see what happens in the finale act of this duology.

Disappointed. The writing was inconsistent there were beautiful spots interspersed with moments of wordy, unnecessary narrative. It was too long & the pace was too slow. I could not connect with it. I loved the magic & the circus bits, but the romance was weak & wishy-washy, the misogyny was just plain annoying, & there was too much time interspersed between the action. I'm sure there is an audience out there for it, but it doesn't contain me.

1) Hm.. I read a book by Sarah Moss that was great, but I'm gunna say the tagged author/book.

2) 'I Was Told It Would Getting Easier' & 'Passing Strange'

3) Probably the same as almost everyone else: escapism. But also, to help me feel things 🤷‍♀️

The premise was fascinating, but the magic contest & its suspicious nature fade to the background fairly quickly. More important are the mystery of what is sabotaging contestants & the way everyone blames Kallia for being a talented female magician & not ashamed to stand out for it. Oddly the mystery, despite being such an important part of the plot, remains largely ignored, which I found disappointing, as it slows down the pace of the book.

"??? ??? ???? ???????? ???."⁣

An atmospheric & well written debut novel by Filipina-American author Janella Angeles. This story combines fantasy, magic, competition, suspense, romance & touches of mystery, horror & feminism. I was completely engrossed by the world, main character Kallia, & fun sidekick Aaros. Jack makes for a great creepy nemesis (or is he?). The book has a stunning, cliffhanger of an ending..Gimme book two!
