Time to see what all the hype is about.

erinreads I love all things ACOTAR and devoured this in two days! I know there are some mixed reviews mainly because Nesta is sometimes the absolute worst, but this one made me actually really like her. Hope you enjoy it! 1y
Aldente @erinreads Thanks! I'll update you as I go! Currently only a few chapters in but enjoying it so far 😊 1y
Aldente @erinreads Finished this book last night. I absolutly adored this book. Nesta's growth throughout the book was amazing and Nesta and Cassian's relationship was to be adored! 14mo
erinreads @Aldente Glad you liked it as well! Absolutely love her and Cassian together. 💕 14mo
Aldente @erinreads Definitely ship them! 🥰 13mo

Unearthly | Cynthia Hand
Pickpick

4/5 stars. This book just reminded me so much of a twilight retelling. Great book though with a bit more plot and more in-depth then twilight.

I've been listening to the keys to the kingdom series on my way to work.

I can't believe this is the last one, I loved these books as a young teenager. The creative mind of Garth Nix amazes me.

So far my favourite story has been The Hound.

(Don't know why it will never let me upload the whole picture, I always have to crop)

Michael_Gee Do you have an iPhone? When I take a picture I scroll over to select “Square” mode. Then I don‘t have to crop when I post to Litsy. 1y
Aldente @Michael_Gee I have an oppo but I'm pretty sure it has that feature too, thanks, I'll give it a shot 1y

This has been on my TBR for a while now. Hoping it's good, the reviews are mixed.

Been wanting to ready more classics, Huckleberry Finn is a good place to start.

Loving all the different little backstories about her character, a nice, different perspective.

Six of Crows | Leigh Bardugo
post image

When you go and get Six of Crows to read then find out it's highly reccomended to read shadow and bone first 🥺

I got so hyped to read it now I have to get a copy of shadow and bone first...

TheBookAddict I‘ve read Six of Crows, but have not read Shadow & Bone. It is on my TBR though. 2y
Aldente @TheBookAddict I know you CAN read it without knowing the shadow and bone side but I'm a stickler and wanna read the Giesha novels first :) 2y
TheBookAddict @Aldente 🙂👍🏽 I honestly didn‘t know about the Griesha trilogy until after I read Six of Crows. 😅🤦🏻‍♀️ 2y

hannah-leeloo Welcome to litsy sweet. Thanks for the add and happy reading 📖❤📚 2y
aa_guer2021 This is on my TBR! 👋🏻 I followed you! 2y
Aldente @TheBookAddict Hmm so it's literally not going to interfere or confuse the story for me if I just start with six of crows? 2y
Aldente @ruskigurl16 Followed back! 😁🙏 2y
Aldente @hannah-leeloo No prob, thanks! 2y
TheBookAddict @Aldente It really didn‘t interfere. When they introduce two character there‘s some tension between them and there‘s a very brief/glazed over reference to it (if I remember correctly). That back story is in the Greisha trilogy. 2y
Aldente @TheBookAddict Maybe, but I really do like back story, thanks though :) 2y
TheBookAddict 🙂👍🏽 2y

"Don't you hate it sometimes? Being a grown-up. Get a job, get a better one, pay taxes, pay more taxes, same old, same old. We are only alive at weekends, the rest of the time, were hamsters in a wheel. And we can never quit spinning, cause there's always another bill, another mortgage, another... What the hell, another brat, to keep the wheel turning."
