The holidays mean both more travel, as pictured, and less time to read, unfortunately.

However, I did start reading Lore by Alexandra Bracken and it seems interesting thus far. I'm just hoping I'll have a bit more time to read it this week.

A total romp. Finally, a female pirate who straddles the line between tough and feminine. The characters felt full and complete, and the story was engaging and fast paced.

Loved the atmosphere and the almost gothic quality to the book. The sisters‘ relationship was sweet. The romance was lackluster and the mystery, not very mysterious.

This was a super fun audiobook, and I have no regrets about squeezing it in between my planned books this month.

Why I loved it:

-That cover!

-MC Lore is a badass and not annoying about it.

-Greek mythology successfully made modern urban fantasy.

-Action-packed, violent, twisty, and sexy.

-YA that didn‘t make my eyes roll.

-A great, diverse cast of characters.

-Excellent narration.

-Again, that cover!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I try to give all my Owlcrate books a fair chance and completely read them, but I struggled with this one. The premise sounded promising, but the writing dragged, both in page count and in scenes.

I usually like supernatural elements in books, but this one was just all over the place and left me frustrated.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

I read the play in high school, but my true love of R&J comes from the Leonardo DiCaprio and Clair Danes movie from the 90‘s. Despite the tragic ending (and how they could have figured this out without dying 🙄) I watched that movie lover and over. Loved what Gong did with the story and can‘t wait to read the sequel.

“Wow that sounds like a great book but maybe I should wait until it comes out in paperback to save some money.” - me, two weeks before I caved and bought it anyway. Of course I picked another Greek myth book! I enjoyed the storyline, the discussion of gender inequality in myth, and a more diverse cast of characters than I expected. I feel like the idea behind the novel could have led to a series, but I also think it‘s best this is a standalone.

Didn‘t love this one as much as I thought I would. Didn‘t like the two main characters and the atmosphere fell flat for me. A bit gory in places but not suspenseful. It did get a bit better near the end but not enough for me to be interested in the second book

BoleyBooks Wise choice. I forced myself through both books…it was disappointing. The story had so much potential and just didn‘t deliver. 1w
Cazxxx @BoleyBooks I totally agree, was looking forward to this one but it was disappointing 7d
