Mehso-so

Characters felt somehow a bit flat, and I couldn't feel all their emotions. They were likable, but nothing more.

This felt so much like many other fantasy YA stories, this wasn't really unique. Plot was also pretty common and predictable. The first 100 pages dragged, and it took that long before starting to be interesting.

This didn't have that special feeling that the first book had, but this was still entertaining story.

This is an important book for understanding Japanese culture and aestheticism. The writing feels dated but I really enjoyed the translator‘s foreword and afterward. 🍵 🇯🇵

Most of the time I drink hot tea (no caffeine) or black coffee (decaf) with cinnamon. But at least once a year I like hot cocoa or coffee with Baileys and whipped cream!!

I think the last book of this year...
A good story. May be the best after the first volume.
Merry Christmas!! 🌲

Although not as good as the first book, this was still a pick for me. I thought the ending was a bit anti climactic after all that build up. I still loved the magic elements and love stories, but this is more about the love between siblings and families. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

My #TBRtarot pick for this month was great! A story about magic that is built around tea! I loved the world building and characters who all had different motivations guiding them. It ended on quite the cliffhanger so I can‘t wait to read the next one! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

CBee Sounds interesting! 😊 3mo

I liked characters but I think they could have been more fleshed out. They are pretty easy to forget.

I adored the atmosphere and the setting. I loved combination tea & magic. Even though magic system could have been explained better.

This was really easy and intriguing to read, even though it wasn't flawless. But I always appreaciate fun adventures!
