#ChloeGongReadAlong
blurb
DebinHawaii
March | Geraldine Brooks
post image

I‘m pretty happy with my March reading. I finished 20 books& accomplished most of what I hoped to do. I finished all 3 #Roll100 books, my buddy reads for #ChloeGongReadAlong #JaneAdjacent #NancyDrewBR #ChildrensClassicRead2024 #SheSaid #Naturalitsy #SeasonalCozies #TravelingStars & my virtual foodie book club & worked in an AuldLangSpine title (trying to do one per month). Finished out 2 series & started a new one #SeriesLove2024 & took part in ⬇️

TheBookHippie WOWIE!!!! ♥️ 2w
DebinHawaii …the #MarveloysMarch #readathon. I did not read my selected #FoodandLit title & did a #DNF after 135 pages of The Golden Notebook for #SundayBuddyRead so not perfect but pretty darn good overall! I liked everything I read (except my DNF) but my favorites included Foul Heart Huntsman, My Monticello, both books in The Naturals series, What Feasts at Night Lone Women & Make Trouble. (edited) 2w
DebinHawaii @TheBookHippie I still feel a little bad for DNFing The Golden Notebook but it did enable me to focus on a few more books I wanted to read! 😆 2w

Pickpick

#ReadAway2024 #MarvelousMarch #readathon #SeriesLove2024

Finished this morning for #ChloeGongReadAlong & it‘s an enthusiastic pick! The author wrapped the duology of this spinoff of her These Violent Delights series satisfyingly. I‘m sad to leave the world/characters but holding out hope she does another spinoff as there‘s still characters with stories to tell.🤞🏼Mahalo @TheBookHippie for the always excellent research, hosting & intro to Gong!

DieAReader 🥳Great! (edited) 2w

I thank you for reading with me!!!

@5feet.of.fury

vlwelser Are we caught up or does she have others out? If there's just the new one I'm voting for January. It's a longer month and we like to hibernate in winter. 2w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser we are caught up ! September is part II Antony & Cleopatra . January I prefer too! 2w
Meshell1313 Thank you for hosting!!! ❤️ 2w
DebinHawaii January is good! Thank you for hosting & getting us on the whole #ChloeGingReadAlong journey! 🤗 2w
Catsandbooks January is great! Thank you for leading these readalongs! ❤️ 2w

I had this in my B&N edition it‘s the wedding of Rosalind !!!!

Fun!!! It was a good ending to these four years of reading this story ♥️

Did you? If not head to Barnes and Noble and read it!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Meshell1313 Yes I absolutely loved this extra nugget. Left everything tied up in a nice little bow. 2w
DebinHawaii I‘m going to have to go read it the next time I‘m at B&N! 2w
Catsandbooks I loved this extra story!! Perfect ending! 2w

“A utopian moment of forgiveness, reconciliation, and hope.”

AS YOU LIKE IT

If you‘ve not read the end notes from Chloe I highly recommend it.

We get our happy ending. However war is looming… but the calm and happy is the time to soak up and soak in. I liked her words on it.

#CHLOEGONGREADALONG

DebinHawaii The end notes were great! 👍🏼 2w
Catsandbooks The end notes were really nice. And this leaves opportunity for future stories in this universe 2w

Alisa

Honestly this is a new OH I LOVE HER…

I like how her character developed & her strong stance of protecting others. Love.

vlwelser You love all of the girls. You don't have to pick favorites. I thought it was weird when I realized Alisa and Phoebe are the same age. Like everyone treats Phoebe like a child. But Alisa is treated as a peer. 2w
Meshell1313 @vlwelser I thought of that also. I feel like in the earlier books Alisa was really a child- it‘s like we watched her grow up. I think for me the difference in how they are treated was because of how they were raised- Alisa was def more sheltered. ??? 2w

TheBookHippie @vlwelser 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Funny I don‘t like MOST women 🤣 and 99 percent of men, okay fine I don‘t like people. 2w
vlwelser I think the fact that we like Chloe translates into liking her fierce girl power characters. 2w
DebinHawaii I kept forgetting they were the same age. I really loved watching Alisa grow from the first book to this one. She is high on my favorites list! @vlwelser @TheBookHippie Hah! Even if we “don‘t have to” I definitely have favorites! 😂🤣😂 2w
Catsandbooks I want a whole Alisa story! 2w
vlwelser @DebinHawaii who's your fav? I don't think I could even choose just 1. 2w
DebinHawaii It‘s plural! 😆 Rosalind, Juliette & Alisa are my top 3. 2w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser Rosalind is my favorite. 🙃 2w
vlwelser It's hard not to pick Rosalind after these last 2 books. 2w

Oliver & Celia
Together still
They‘re like the no nonsense couple

I do like Celia quite a bit 😊♥️

🤷🏻‍♀️🙃🤣

vlwelser Celia is a beast. I love her. 2w
DebinHawaii I like Celia too. Oliver is lower on my list (but higher than Silas!) 😉😆 2w
Catsandbooks I like Celia and Oliver and their ending! 2w

Silas
I still don‘t like him
As for him and Phoebe ..eh

Priest Phoebe
Love
Also Oliver was her handler?!
Sneaky 🙃😳

5feet.of.fury I didn‘t remember if they had mentioned that before! Orion & Rosalind were all “why did she sound like an operative” meanwhile Oliver & Celia are in on it 2w
5feet.of.fury Silas came through in the end, and his whole proclamation that he was obsessed with Priest because he loves Phoebe… think we are getting a book with them down the line since they are the only couple with double lives between them? 2w

TheBookHippie @5feet.of.fury oh I hope so!!!! 2w
TheBookHippie @5feet.of.fury right???? It‘s all so twisty!!! 2w
vlwelser I knew the Oliver thing. I definitely still do not like Silas. 2w
Meshell1313 @5feet.of.fury yes! That makes total sense! 2w
DebinHawaii Still not a Silas fan either & don‘t feel the chemistry with them at all. But, would I read their book? Absolutely! (Although give me an Alisa or Alisa & Phoebe book!) 2w
Catsandbooks I don't hate Silas but I feel like their relationship was a little underdeveloped. A story of their own would be welcome 2w

Roma & Juliette #CHLOEGONGREADALONG

I like how they are the “elders” and the safe place for all. It is fun to see them settled and now a baby !

Also -Juliette still a bad ass ♥️

♥️Baby‘s name:
Katherina
Katyusha

vlwelser Oh. Because the other triplet. Maybe? Maybe this will be a new generation of badasses in future books. Hopefully. 2w
Meshell1313 Thank goodness for this ending between them. 2w
DebinHawaii Yes! Happy to hear their news & I do love the two of them! 2w
Catsandbooks When they sent the announcement that they were expecting I teared up! 2w

vlwelser I got pulled into their love story as well. They might also be my favorite couple. Orion is perfect for the swoon worthy love interest. And Rosalind is so fierce. I love them both. 2w
DebinHawaii I am with you! They are my favorites as well! So happy at how things ended up for them! 💕💕💕 2w
Catsandbooks My favorite too! I think cause we get to see them from the beginning and see how their relationship has grown ❤️ 2w
