I liked how there was one meta-narrative story that linked different stories together and it was easy to switch from a story to another one.

The first one wasn't my thing, it was just strange and didn't make me feel something. But luckily stories went better and the second one was enjoyable. And the last one was awesome and definitely my favorite.

Characters could have been more fleshed out - now this felt like there was more telling and less showing.

I loved the family with several magicians and all those secret doors & hidden places. But the writing made this still feel a bit dry and boring.

I think the story itself was okay and it was interesting to see how the mystery would get solved. But I think this was way too long for this amount of action.

I was surprised how much I liked this! I have seen the show and loved it. Characters were fleshed out; they had their secrets and past mistakes. They felt realistic and it was easy to relate to them.

I loved the adventure this book gave me, the whole idea is amazing and intriguing. I loved how their creepy society and I just kept having the feeling how this wasn't all and there is so much more on it's way.

I loved the characters and atmosphere so much! This was really cozy and comforting book.

Setting was amazing: lovely little bookshop, this was like an ode to books and I loved it.

The ending wasn't my favorite but okay. It felt a bit rushed but I still liked it.

I loved how realistic characters felt, this tasted like life. I laughed aloud several times and had tons of fun with this book.

I read a Finnish historical fiction that was setting during the time when city of Vaasa burned to the ground in 1852. I was so excited because I visit quite often Ruins of Old Vaasa.

I was a bit disappointed because the writing style made this to be more like telling and less showing. So this didn't delivered what I expected. But this was still interesting because this topic is intriguing.

I loved how realistic characters felt: it was so awful to see Jay doing some mistakes when you could do nothing else than follow.

This was sweet and light to read. I liked how this wasn't too cute - that made this feel like life.

I wanted to see how things were going to be solved. One Jay's decision was really hard to understand in his situation but I was intrigued to see what was going to happen next.

I liked this so much! I was surprised because the first one wasn't really brilliant.

It was nice to see the couple of the next book and characters overall were pretty good. I liked how Diana had her opinions about society and women's rights.

This was really fun, light and entertaining to read. This wasn't too long and hadn't too stupid twists. I loved to follow how Diana's and Jeremy's story would end.

Callie was awesome main character: she wanted to do things that society didn't allow her to do. Rebellious characters are delightful! Ralston had a heart in the right place and I liked how he treated Callie.

This was really solid story but when you guess every twist beforehand it doesn't feel that intriguing.

For me this wasn't that special but there were so many positive things that I can't say this was bad.
