Some of this read is very predictable, and some just asinine. It was a quick read and I like most of the characters, just not all of them. I enjoyed this series, and it ends on a cliffhanger, but I am not sure I care enough to read the second book. I have it, but it‘s not a priority.

#MyYearInBooks #GoodReads I thought my star rating would have been higher this year?!??? As I was very generous with my 5 star ratings 🤩😜and please, it‘s only December 15.... why the rush to call stats, GoodReads?!??

Scochrane26 They always start early & want you to post stats. I don‘t know why. 1mo
TrishB Obviously the one star and the five stars balanced each other out! 1mo
KarenUK My average was 4.2! Not really a surprise for this #starslut ! Although in my defense, I‘m not the fastest of readers, and I try and be super selective with what I read.... Or let‘s be honest... maybe I‘m just a #starslut ! 😂😂😂 1mo

Reggie This happened last year, but as long as you update the dates of the books you keep reading it keeps changing to include the books you read until the end of the year. 1mo
4thhouseontheleft I‘m at 3.8 this year. It‘s usually higher, but I‘ve read some real duds which would usually not count as I tend to DNF the books I can‘t stand, but they all seemed to be challenge prompt books this year. 1mo
Cinfhen You‘re right @Reggie my year in books has updated since I added 2 books today 😜I only read one REAL dud due to a challenge this year....it was my #CliFi 🙈 @4thhouseontheleft 1mo
Crazeedi I just saw my year in books but I'm not done yet! 3 to go to reach my goal!! 1mo

I enjoyed this. Running out of water is a really scary concept, but definitely something we should be thinking more about. Although this is set in southern California, it's just as applicable here in Australia.

I liked the characters and the story, although it definitely is targeted more towards YA.

This is my #clifi pick for #booked2019

Only one more book to go!

BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job!! ♥️📚👊🏻 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 That‘s the one I wanted to use as my clifi, but I‘m terrible at challenges. I always end up getting sidetracked. It looks good! 1mo
JennyM And particularly with the temps that are coming next week🥵 Scary stuff!!! 1mo
Cinfhen Great review!!! I really didn‘t enjoy my #CliFi so im glad your pick was a good one 😃almost there🙌🏻 1mo

Emilymdxn What a gorgeous cover! 2mo
Tamra Want to read! 2mo
Reviewsbylola Sounds like this would have been a good pick for the #booked2019 prompt #clifi. I really disliked the book I read for it. 2mo
reluctantangeleno Oh my gosh, this cover! 😍 2mo

This had its flaws and I would not consider it YA, but it was an original Page-Turner too. #ownvoices #clifi #Booked2019 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

Cinfhen I‘ve seen lots of positive reviews about this book. Another prompt ✅ 2mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I read this for #clifi also. Not perfect, but definitely an interesting book. I may give the next in the series a go also! 2mo

This is fundamentally a good read, in its genre. A little too YA for me, but reminds me of the best parts of early Anita Blake books. Roanhorse could improve her skill at writing dialogue. But her vision of a post-climate catastrophe world is unique and interesting, especially the supernatural elements. Might borrow not buy book 2.

Cinfhen Since most disliked their #ClFi pick yay for you and this works for #IndigenousAuthor too ❤️ 4mo
Addison_Reads Great review! I read this and enjoyed it, but I agree with your points on her dialogue. 4mo
Susanita I agree the dialogue was awkward, and Maggie is a little two-dimensional, but I do want to see where the story goes. 4mo

Susanita @Cinfhen I had picked American War originally, and I just couldn‘t get into it at all. 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen Right! I already did my indigenous author book. The #clifi prompt has been a sword hanging over my head. Gone now! 👊🏻🤪 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Addison_Reads @Susanita Glad the dialogue discomfort wasn‘t just me being picky. 👊🏻 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Susanita @Cinfhen I definitely think #clifi is our collective #leastfavorite2020prompt. I had intended to read Oryx and Crake for this. Still want to give it a try. 4mo
