I feel like I‘ve won the lottery: my hold came in the day after it released. Hooray for requesting ahead of time on Overdrive! 🙌🏻

Now to squeeze it in with all of my other library books and challenge reads. 😬

Crazeedi Isnt it great to be the first one to get a just released book on overdrive? That's happened to me a couple times, its neat cause you know everyone wants to read it!! 1w
sprainedbrain @Crazeedi it does feel nice! I‘ve waited months and months on hold for plenty so being first every once in a while makes me feel like I need to prepare an acceptance speech and thank my mom. 😂 (edited) 1w

WorldsOkayestStepMom That's such a pretty book cover! I'm a collector of skeleton keys. 💜💚💜 1w
Kimberlone It‘s not even available to check out digitally from my library (in ebook or audiobook) :( I caved and used an audible credit to get this because I cannot justify paying more than $20 on a hardback new release 1w
lele1432 That's exciting! 1w
sprainedbrain @Kimberlone I was going to spend an audible credit on it, too! I was just waiting to see if the library would get it. I got lucky. 1w
sprainedbrain @WorldsOkayestStepMom it‘s very pretty😍 1w
Flaneurette Me too! I put it on hold waaaay back in June. It‘s like winning the lottery 1w
Kimberlone @sprainedbrain lucky for you! I am waiting until next week when I am on vacation to start listening, but I hope you enjoy! 1w
Kalalalatja I‘m so jealous 😍😍 1w
Reggie What she said👍🏽 I am also jealous! 1w
HOTPock3tt Super jealous!!! 😃 7d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain Let‘s buddy read this one together, Jenni! ♥️ I‘ve decided I need a fun challenge lol. I haven‘t actually done a buddy read before but it should be fun. I was hovering around amazon kindle at midnight on the release date and waiting for this one to come out! I ended up just downloading a sample, but will probably actually buy it. Tell me when you start it and I‘ll start with you! 🤗 5d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt oh yes, that sounds funny! I‘ve done buddy reads but I‘m terrible at them because I read ahead or fall behind. Mine is a library copy though, so I must have it finished by 4:27 pm on 11/27. 😂 5d
HOTPock3tt Yay! Ok sounds good! I‘m going to download it then and start tonight! When you do a buddy read how much is expected for the first week? I don‘t exactly know the rules 😅we‘re batting 1000 already since you‘re terrible at them and I don‘t even know the rules lmao!! 🤣🤣🤣 @sprainedbrain we just have to make sure we go thru it quickly enough to be done before you need to return it 🤔 (edited) 5d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt I think we can make our own rules since it‘s just us. Haha. Looks like it‘s divided into 6 books, and I have 18 days before it‘s due back. So if we read one book every 2-3 days, we should be fine. Is that too fast? Total estimation, but that‘s about 73 pages every 2-3 days. 5d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt which is making me worried already because if I really like it, I‘m going to finish it way faster than that. 😂😂😂 5d
HOTPock3tt Ok that‘s fine! 🤗♥️ #Excited @sprainedbrain 5d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain even if you go faster that‘s ok... as long as were reading the same book AROUND the same time so we can chat about it 😎 5d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt I‘m excited, too! I guess we can just post about what we‘ve read and discuss as we go? ❤️❤️❤️ 5d
HOTPock3tt Ok we‘ll do that! ❤️❤️❤️ @sprainedbrain 5d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt perfect! I‘m so glad you suggested this! 5d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain me too!! And it‘s QUITE interesting so far! 😃I started last night... I guess we can do the first discussion after we both finish book one? I‘m listening to the audiobook so hopefully they will tell me when I get to book 2 😅 4d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt haha you don‘t have to stop on my account! I‘m doing the audio too, starting tonight when I finish my current book. I‘m sure I will go fast. 😬 4d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain I‘m finished with book 1 (and into book 2 lol) whenever you want to chat about it 😎 3d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt won‘t be long! I‘m so hooked on this book already! 3d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain Me too! I‘m listening in my every waking moment 😂lol (edited) 3d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt I seem to have passed right in to book 2!! (edited) 3d
HOTPock3tt I will say this: I adore the espionage in this story surrounding books! 😃Books/fairy tale realms somehow being dangerous material people are trying to protect ‘by any means necessary‘ 😂 also the place he is trying to explore after his lost opportunity ie. finding himself WITHIN the story but things REALLY started to move for me with the masquerade ball and the new players he met! ✨♥️You‘ve passed that already right? OMG! 😍 @sprainedbrain (edited) 2d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt YES! I want to go to a party like that. 😍 2d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain Me too! Someone dressed as Edgar Allen Poe, women with dresses made of pages, literary themed DRINKS!! 🍷 and famous authors in attendance! Omg what if Atwood was there?! 😍🎉 I also loved Dorian naming himself after picture of Dorian Gray (I loved that book!) and the sinister fur coat lady who threatened to kill his mom if he so much as TWEETS the existence of the fairy tale realm! 😱🙌🏽♥️ (edited) 2d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain I think I mostly just want to dress up as a literary character and have people try to guess my costume and drink literary themed drinks lol 🍷🤣 I would go as Fayre from ACOMAF. How about you? Which character would you go as? I wanted to dress as her this Halloween but I ended up having to work on Halloween.... (edited) 2d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain what if Deb Harkness was there?! 😃🙌🏽 I would LOVE to pick her brain about the characters of A discovery of witches and Elizabethan England!! ♥️♥️♥️ ok I‘ll stop now lmao! 🤣 2d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt omg when he saw the ‘famous author‘ I was all like IT‘S STEPHEN KING. HAS TO BE. 😂 2d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt I would want to go as Clare Fraser from Outlander. That would give me many different styles of dress to choose from. 2d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain That would be AMAZING! 😍You could either do her Scottish home spun or her French high fashion or 1960‘s career woman! not to stray from topic but you‘ve read all the Outlander books too right?😃As soon as I finished the last one, written in my own hearts blood I was sad. I STILL feel like the characters from outlander are the ones I‘ve felt the closest too that I‘ve EVER read. They feel the most life-like if that makes any sense 😂 2d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt Yes, I‘ve read them all and then listened to them again! You continue proving to be my #booksister. I feel so strongly about those characters, and while I don‘t think any of those books were even 5-star reads for me, when people ask for my favorite books/series, authors, or characters they are always on the list. ❤️ 2d
HOTPock3tt I know right! #BookSister I‘m STILL shocked by how similar our tastes are! I also feel quite strongly about those characters and I feel like I‘m the most invested in them than any others from any other books. In other books I‘ve read the characters are just ‘the characters‘ but Jaime/Claire +Briana and Jenny etc are THEMSELVES!! have a feeling of being AT HOME when I read the Outlander books that I don‘t have with any other series @sprainedbrain (edited) 2d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain and they weren‘t 5 star books for me either!! 😂 I remember telling someone that outlander was one of my fave series and I was thinking “she‘s going to read my litsy profile and realize I rated most of them “so-so” 🤣 but they are always on my fave lists across the boards (characters/books/series etc) its the attachment to the characters + being so invested in them+ the feeling of home when you read the books... (edited) 2d
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt EXACTLY. I have legitimate feelings for so many characters in those books. They are like family. 2d
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain they really are!! ♥️that‘s the BEST description I‘ve ever heard for it. They are like FAMILY. 2d

Just started this book. I initially fell in love with the cover, it is beautiful.
I'm 75 pages in, and the premise of the story is so intriguing and unique. I cannot wait to see where this book takes me.

SW-T It wasn‘t what I was expecting, but it was well told. 3mo
Yoricke_SouthAfrica @SW-T I'm a few more pages in (mid-week reading), and I'm really intrigued. 3mo
