I normally do not like romantic books. They seem cheesy and unrealistic to me. I picked this book up on a whim though because I loved the cover. I was pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed the story and finished it in a day.

Let me guess... fall into a deep, emotionally complex book hangover? That sounds about right.

And, in case u hadn't guessed... I LOVED THIS

This book offered a fun storyline and an interesting exploration of anxiety and PTSD (whether on purpose or by coincidence, I don't know). I had some trouble seeing the villain as a character. #lgbt #lgbtfantasy #lgbtq #lgbtliterature #ghost #magic #anxiety #trauma

One of her best works! The story didn‘t go all over the place. Would want to read again

I love this. I'm not exactly a romantic, but I love me some well-handled consent 😍

audraelizabeth Thats something I love about jamie in outlander he always asks before kissing and sex. 1d
ShyBookOwl @audraelizabeth interesting! I haven't read the books but I watched the first few tv episodes and was turned off by the LACK of consent to put it gently. Not between her and Jaime but other scenes. I have since blocked it so I can't recall if there were actual rape scenes or attempted rape scenes.. either way, I remember thinking it was excessive in that department and I wasn't into it. 23h
audraelizabeth There are although not female and male. They are pulled from the book and are part of the story. At one point the mackenzie men end up in a fight defending claire. 20h

So absorbed in this book that I didn't realize a snowstorm was happening! The last time I looked outside was this afternoon, and it still looked like autumn! Now it's all blowing wind and snow. Brr! Going to close the curtains and lose myself in this book again 😌

Sace Yikes! 😱 2d
SW-T That must be some book! Hope you don‘t have to go out anytime soon. Stay in and stay warm 😊 2d

I devoured this book on a flight to San Diego. 4/5 ⭐️. Would have given it a perfect rating but the ending felt a little disjointed to me. I found myself really relating to Annika, especially the desire to hide under the covers with a book when faced with social situations 😬.

Trouble sleeping... again. Found an interesting book though! I do love a story about creating stories 🤷🏽‍♀️

This was between a pick and a so-so for me. I think he had some good advice, but some of it didn‘t really apply to me. Like all the social media stuff. Do I like/use social media? Absolutely. But I don‘t check it as often as some people and I‘m not the type to be influenced by people. Overall it was a decent read and a nice reminder we‘re in control of how we feel
