Mehso-so

3 ⭐ There is a good story in here but it is confused by too many voices trying to tell the story and a bit of repetition. The characters felt too distant. I think I was spoiled by The Bear & The Nightingale triology that may have impacted on my enjoyment of this book.

JaneyWaneyB Picture was taken yesterday on the train. Very different morning here in Essex today 🌧 6d
TheAromaofBooks I had similar feelings when I read this one. It seems like if there needs to be more than three first-person voices to tell a story, maybe the story should be told in third person?? I was also distracted by how an uneducated/abused girl, an educated/loved girl, & a young noblewoman all sounded basically alike in language & tone. I didn't dislike the story, I just never connected with the characters. 6d
Mishu94 I‘m currently reading this and I have been at it for a week, I can‘t seem to read much in one sitting 😕 6d

JaneyWaneyB @TheAromaofBooks I completely agree a third person telling would have been better. I didn't warm to any character. 6d
JaneyWaneyB @Mishu94 my rule is if I'm not hooked by around page 100, I bail. Life's too short to be stuck reading a book I couldn't get into especially with my TBR pile and list 😄 6d
Mishu94 Well I forced myself up till page 257! It‘s too late to give up now I reckon 😂😂😂😂 (edited) 6d
JaneyWaneyB Keep going @Mishu94 🏃‍♀️📚 5d
CarolynM I use the 100 page rule too🙂 5d

#ThursdaySurvey from @laurenslibrary

1. Yep good old winter here in Blighty
2. Rarely it tends to prefer to rain🌧 and blow a gale🌬
3. Fleecy PJ's, blankets, tea so you can be snuggly whilst reading
4. Cup of tea
5. Tagged. Loved this triology set in a very cold & snowy Russia

After a slightly slow start I'm now intrigued to find out where this story will take me with Miryem stuck in fairy land with a cruel Staryk King & Irina married to a beautiful Tsar with a dark magic & fire demon seeking to drink her life. The parallel story is becoming more intertwined keeping me hooked as I keep warm under a cosy blanket with a cup of tea

ShyBookOwl One of my favourite fantasy novels! Enjoy 😊 2w
JaneyWaneyB @ShyBookOwl I've just hit the 'here we go' plot mover in the middle. I'm liking Miryem more & more 😉 2w

JaneyWaneyB @TheAromaofBooks I know right 😍 that cover grabbed my attention in the bookshop & I had to have it. Fascinated with snowy Russia at the mo thanks to Katherine Arden's triology 2w
TheAromaofBooks @JaneyWaneyB - I didn't enjoy Spinning Silver as much as Uprooted, but it still had a lot of fantastic atmosphere. I haven't gotten around to reading The Bear and The Nightingale trilogy yet, but it has been on my list forever!!! 2w
JaneyWaneyB @TheAromaofBooks you've just added Uprooted to my TBR pile I like the sound of that book 2w
TheAromaofBooks It's a very different type of book from Spinning Silver, but I really loved it. 2w

A fantastic finale for a magical triology. This tale is full of battles, political manoeuvring & personal struggles. Vasya becomes a woman & a witch in her own right with power to command, treaty & fight. The story moves at such a pace you don't have time to pause, grieve or wonder before being thrown into the next battle. The characters are well-written & come to life on the page.

JaneyWaneyB I have fallen in love with the Winter-King, Morozko & his vast power mixed with a cool, distant love for Vasya & all men. I had to buy the rabbit in the picture who is named for Morozko because his midnight fur & star ears reminded me of him. The mix of magic, pagan & Christian beliefs with Russian folklore & historical fact brings this tale to life in a way I haven't read in a long time. 3w
JaneyWaneyB This is a firm favourite series & one I will remember. 5⭐ + 1⭐ extra for bringing tears to my eyes on a few chapters 3w

"I will think of the future. To remind me that the present is not forever....What is the present without the future?"

Great quote to remind us that we can change the situation we find ourselves in, we may feel stuck but we can find purpose & win a victory however small
