Started this audio today and am already enjoying it! (Normally I‘m not super into history type story lines or time travel but… it‘s working for me!) #ShadowOfNight

Started to watch this series. It follows the book very well. And it's just visually stunning. But.. I was busy doing things when I was watching (like it was in the background) so I might restart it soon (got to episode 3?)

I forgot to post my review when I finished this!

I first read ADOW not long after it was first published, and I hated it. At the time, I think it came on the heels of Twilight and way too much vampire-centric fiction. This time around, I enjoyed it much more, and am already almost finished with the second book.

This is why I rarely give 👎 reviews. My reaction to a book is sometimes more about my mood than the book itself.

JamieArc I have the same thoughts about panning books. My reviews are so subjective to my mood at the time that it‘s best to take them with a grain of salt, whether they are not so stellar reviews or over-the-top good reviews 😂 1mo
Lizpixie I was exactly the same with this one too, I bought it when it was released the DNFed it fit over two years before picking it back up. It‘s now one of my favourite magical realism series👍 1mo
MoonWitch94 I‘m so glad you liked it this time! 1mo

🌙I‘m continuing our #AllSouls group read-along with Book 2: #ShadowofNight 🖤

The real-time read for this one has too many gaps, so I created a schedule that breaks down the book over the course of 8 weeks, at a leisurely pace (accounting for the upcoming holiday season). This is a no-pressure group reading. Tagging the folks who participated in the #DOWRTR in case you‘d like to join!

⭐️Wanna join? Comment below! Feel free to share as well!

Thank you @MoonWitch94 for hosting the #DOWRTR
It made me finally cross this amazing book off my TBR! I loved the slow pace of the schedule. (I only read ahead the last couple chapters because it was just so good) I loved the characters and the magical world of creatures. Such an interesting take on the normal witches and vampires. And of course I enjoyed the forbidden romance of Diana & Matthew. I'll definitely be reading the rest of the series.

#Chapter43 #November1st #DOWRTR

This chapter is bittersweet & the first time I read it, I was teary-eyed when I saw the note Matthew leaves for Sarah & Em. Such a sweet gesture.

📜What did you think of the novel? Did you enjoy it? Did it meet or exceed your expectations?

📖Would you like to move on to Shadow of Night as a group? The real-time read is more chaotic, but we could go at a simpler pace? Let me know below!

Librarybelle It was a bittersweet end! But, I‘m so glad I read this book, so thank you for leading the real time reading on Litsy! I did start Shadow of Night and had planned to do the chaotic real time read but would be interested in reading as a group in a not so very chaotic group read. 1mo
katy4peas I would read another one with the group. I have about 5% of the book left, but I know I will want to jump into the next book! I hope the rest of the series is as good as this first one! 1mo
BookNAround I went out and bought 2 and 3 immediately. I didn‘t expect to enjoy it nearly as much as I did so I‘m so glad for the push to read it. And yes, I‘d read along again. 1mo

Lynnsoprano Thanks for putting this together! It‘s the slowest read of this book I‘ve done, and I admit to finishing early anyway ☺️ Since Shadow of Night is my favorite of the trilogy (I know, I‘m weird, but part is set in my beloved Prague) I‘m definitely in on a read together, real time or otherwise. 1mo
Catsandbooks Yes definitely will be reading the rest of the series! And would love to have a group to discuss with! 1mo
peanutnine I enjoyed this readalong immensely! I am planning on reading the next book and would love to read with the group for discussion ☺️ 1mo
AFrostCauseReads I enjoyed this book so much more than I was expecting to! I was about to read the next one too, might as well do it as a group! 1mo
Laughterhp Yes! I already have the second book ready to go! 1mo
catebutler This has been one of my favourite read-alongs, so thank you so much for hosting this!! I would love to continue with the series, so just let us know when you want to start. 1mo
ElizaMarie I loved it! I think the next book will end up being audible because I didn't have it purchased yet.. But I am super excited about it! Thank you again for hosting!!! 4w

Loved this as much as I did the first time I read it. It was interesting reading it in real time. I did finish a day early to include it with my October reading. The end revolves around Halloween so I gave it 25 points for #Scarathlon2021. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I am so glad I finally took the time to read this book! Many thanks to @MoonWitch94 for hosting #DOWRTR . I was captivated by the mixture of history and alchemy and witches and vampires and daemons. The story unfolded nicely, and I plan to continue to the next book, using the real time reading guidance by Harkness.

Diana and Matthew‘s stories are very intriguing, and I cannot wait to learn a bit more.
