A solid 3.75 read. I‘m a bit behind on reviews for my blog, so when I finally catch up, it‘ll be at https://www.rainyreader.com/single-post/ninth-house.

For all the messaging this book had about writing as a mechanism for telling a deeper, personal truth, I expected it to dig far deeper into its own characters. I was invested in them all, and I loved the setting, but some of the pain points felt only touched on, not fully processed. This was good, but it could have been better. #yalit #yahistoricalfiction #darkacademia #almost

And with that, I‘m done with #pop22! This one fit the use a prompt for previous years. I chose #darkacademia to fit #booked2022.

I‘m not exactly sure how this is dark academia, but I loved this book. I loved the journey that the story took you on and all the fairytales and stories sprinkled in between.

I loved everything about this book and it‘s currently my favorite read of December.

I really enjoyed this book. It is set at the Cloisters which is part of MOMA, a place I'd love to visit. Ann gets a summer job there where she spends her time researching tarot cards, dating the hot gardener and trying to piece together who murdered her boss.

3rd in the Malbry series finds classics teacher Roy Straitley meeting his greatest nemesis, female head La Buckfast, who not only has introduced girls to St oswalds grammar school but also has a story to tell Roy that has him caught like a fish with a hook. This is such a great series that captures the claustrophobia of an English grammar school so well. I love a #darkacademia story

This is a wicked, ingenious, and deliciously shocking ride of a story. Great characterizations and and absolutely awful/wonderful/crazy plot. #DarkAcademia at its best. So, so good!

GondorGirl I have this sitting on my shelf. Now I seriously need to hurry up and read it! 2mo

I just finished this magnificent book and I‘m left with awe. I will give The Poppy War another try after this. As a linguist student, I really enjoyed all the discussions on translation, and as a reader I fell in love with Robin, Ramy and Victoire, and I followed their story until the emotional end. It‘s really, really good.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

The Atlas Paradox | Olivie Blake

The Atlas Paradox is a slow but still engaging sequel. I actually hoped for more character development, and that the characters finally formed actual relationships with each other :/ . Well, I guess there is still Book 3?!

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️,5/5

Catherine House: A Novel | Elisabeth Thomas

Pickpick

Is she high? Are they all high? Am I high? These questions all crossed my mind while reading this book. I have spent all day thinking about it and finally decided it was a pick for me. CH is an exclusive school with free tuition and room and board. Students must commit to staying for three years (including summers), never leaving the grounds, and then will leave to be successful. I‘m unclear if CH is a college. I know the students are adults. ⬇️

Bookzombie There isn‘t much of a plot, but I still found it compelling to pick up. This is basically Ines‘ story of being at Catherine House. #Booked2022 #darkacademia 3mo
Reggie Lol I totally understand your first sentences when it comes to some books. I haven‘t read this one but you and a couple of others have left entertaining reviews on this one that make me want to pick it up. 3mo
Bookzombie @Reggie If you pick it up, I hope you like it too. Some people really disliked it though. Lol. I saw there is a discussion with the author on YouTube that I may watch. I‘m curious about what she says about it. 3mo

Hooked_on_books I wasn‘t a fan, but maybe it would have worked better for me if I was high? 😂 3mo

Bookzombie @Smrloomis Thank you! 🙂 3mo
Bookzombie @Hooked_on_books @mcipher LOL. Just to clarify I wasn‘t high. 🙂 Although that would have been interesting. 3mo
