⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I really enjoyed this gothic tale. The mystery aspect hooked me right out of the gate, and I enjoyed how the writing created a somewhat disorienting effect at times.

A fun, easy read. It was a fitting end to the Ember series. I think the themes of light and darkness were prevalent. This was not only in the physical sense but also in the contrast of characters. This was the ultimate reemergence of man coming back into the light of knowledge after the darkness of the great Disaster. This is my May #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks

Another light pick for me. Naturally, not all of these stories worked for me and some were more memorable than others, but several were clever and funny and I enjoyed the time I spent reading them.

@Megabooks I mailed this yesterday. It should get to you by Tuesday. 😊👍🏽

I enjoyed the weirdness and unique ideas in this collection, but it lost some steam for me in the second half. A light pick.

I‘m planning on mailing this tomorrow, @Megabooks . I‘ll send you the tracking number when I have it. 😊

shadowspeak17 @Megabooks Okay, it‘s on the way. I just emailed you the tracking number. 😊 10mo
Megabooks It arrived! I saw your note about using post its and that‘s cool, but I did notice a few underlined sentences. Is that okay? To underline when warranted? 10mo
shadowspeak17 @Megabooks Oh, good! I was hoping it wouldn‘t actually take until Monday to get to you. 😄 I actually underlined using clear sticky notes. I sent some along with the book if you want to try them out, but if you‘d rather do it on the book that‘s okay. :) 10mo
Megabooks Ah! I‘ve never used those before. Excited to try them out! 10mo

This one was a dud with my book club. Opinions ranged from okay to bad. I didn‘t like it, but I do understand why people would enjoy it. I think there was a moving story in here, but it was marred in the telling. The writing style was often hard to follow and felt like it was trying too hard to be profound. The constant hinting at things to come and the tendency to dance around things rather than just say whatever it was explicitly drove me nuts.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag This is one of the few books that library patrons have gone out of their way to tell me they didn‘t like or were disappointed with. I haven‘t read it - but have wondered if it‘s got anything to do with how beloved The Book Thief is… 11mo
RaeLovesToRead Awww Ember!! 🥰 I am one of the few people who didn't like The Book Thief, so I doubt this one is for me. (The whole thing felt like writing. I don't think there was a single minute that I wasn't aware I was READING A BOOK.) 11mo

There were a few parts of this book that I really liked, like the behind the scenes look at a couple nature documentaries, but the rest I didn‘t love. While the information was interesting, I don‘t think the way it was presented was very good for someone unfamiliar with the subject matter.

Cinfhen Awww, sorry it wasn‘t a pick. I like learning new things from books but it needs to be well organized and explained, otherwise it comes across as dry. 11mo

Reading this felt like reading a dream, and I loved it. I‘m sure I didn‘t understand everything, but I enjoyed trying to figure it all out.
