A Winter's Promise | Christelle Dabos

In this book we meet Ophelia, who can read the past of objects and travel through mirrors. One day she is told that she‘s engaged to a man from an other ark. Shortly afterwards, he comes to take har back to his ark. A world completely different to the ark Ophelia is born. Once there, hardly anything is at it seems.

I can‘t remember the last time I was this involved in the life of a character.

AnneCecilie When I wasn‘t reading this book, I wondered what would happen to Ophelia. I now need to get my hands on the second book in this quartet. I‘ve already checked, and the third book is out this fall. I‘m so glad you had this on your #WomenReadWomen2019 list so I finally read this @GatheringBooks 2w
AnneCecilie I‘m going to count this as my first chunkster with just under 500 p for #YearOfTheChunksters @TheReadingMermaid 2w

BarbaraBB You‘re having a year of the chunkster? How brave! 2w
AnneCecilie @BarbaraBB I will definitely read other books too, but I thought I should focus more on reading the bigger books on my tbr. 2w
Librarybelle Great review! 2w
Crazeedi Love the cover, nice synopsis💞 2w
BookwormM Sounds amazing 2w
GatheringBooks Very happy to see your review. I also liked how Ophelia is not your traditional heroine, and how she is frequently described as mousy, nondescript, and unattractive. I have the second book in the series but still waiting for the third book to be translated before i begin binge-reading them. :) 2w
BiblioLitten The cover is gorgeous! 2w
AnneCecilie @GatheringBooks I don‘t think I can do that. I hope to get my hands on the 2nd book as soon as possible and read it in February. If that is just as good as the 1st, I just have to start the countdown. 2w

#HollyJollyReading Day 28: Fats‘ review: “It‘s basically an introvert‘s Bible, in comics form. Any introvert would relate to Debbie‘s social experiences. It‘s a #nice addition to the growing list of books about introverts. (Someday, we will rule the world.)” Full review of her feature of three graphic memoirs by female artists for #WomenReadWomen2019: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kSD

#HollyJollyReading Day 23: I have a feeling this is going to be my #HolidayMovie - but more like a TV series binge. Brought the first two books with me as well here in the US for my January reading which marks the end of our #WomenReadWomen2019 theme and the start of our #ReadIntl2020 theme where we feature international/translated titles from all over the world.

OriginalCyn620 I want to watch this too! 4w
Areader2 I have read the first two in the series then read one of the two short stories just bought the second, I don‘t have Netflix 😩but I think I will have to get just for this series, casting for Geralt 😍 4w
Kalalalatja My bf and I binged the first four episodes yesterday, and it is great! 4w

This amazing whirling dervish seemed like the perfect backdrop for Akata Witch. He swirled and whirled for 15 minutes. Finally found the time to do the touristy thing here in Dubai with the camel ride during the sunset, the quad bike, falcon show, and belly dancing and barbecue dinner. What a full and wondrous day. #WomenReadWomen2019

Velvetfur That all sounds fantastic! 😁 xx 2mo

#GratefulReads Day 29: This #BlackInTheTitle nonfiction is perfect for #WomenReadWomen2019. While there were familiar names included in this compilation of mini-biographies such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Wilma Rudolph, Rosa Parks – among others; there were also a few unknown-to-me formidable females. My full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kb9

TheKidUpstairs We just received the board book certain of this for my daughter's bookshelf, at a shower thrown by my library colleagues. It's a beautiful book! 2mo

#GratefulReads Day 24: There is a build-up of power in this narrative written by a Mormon woman. While I thought, initially that we had very little in common – her persistence in inviting me over to drink her words has loosened me up, and made me extend my hand in solidarity, in shared womanity, in friendship. This is a #memoir that will stay with me for a long time to come. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-l4F #WomenReadWomen2019

#GratefulReads Day 16: This was a case of #ThoughtYouWouldntLikeButDid. This is the perfect poolside read: plot-driven, lots of funny dialogue, story-within-a-story format, death, mystery, and erotic stories. I am glad that this is my first Singapore read for #WomenReadWomen2019. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kpZ
