Thank you mom for tricking me into becoming a pure blooded reader. Every book I buy, borrow, steal from you or my sister, is all because of you.

I have down right horrible taste in men. How did I manage to fall for the villain so hard that his betrayal broke my very soul? I am appalled by my choices.

In other news: this book is amazing and I loved it.

Did I just choose my next read because the book itself smelled better than its opposition? Yes I did. No regrets or effs given!

KristiAhlers I totally sniff a book to see if it‘s amazing before I buy. Only other book people understand that 😄 4d

I spent an unnecessary amount of time crying my way through this book. What the actual hell. Is there a second book? There had better be since this ended in a highly unsatisfying manner.

wordslinger42 I'm planning on reading this soon! And I did hear that it's supposed to be a series! 4d

As this is my first tabbing attempt, I‘m not sure if it enhanced the experience or kept me fuzzily detached so I didn‘t sob at all the cute…. Hmm. Oh well, easily a 4 star read.

What the actual (insert appropriate curse word here.) The audacity. The duplicity. The downright childish behavior of supposed adults.

I‘d like to take this opportunity to introduce my next read. Isn‘t she absolutely gorgeous?! I will not lie, I haven‘t a clue what this book is about. I saw the inside cover on Booktok and immediately went to Barnes and Noble for this exclusive edition. I have zero regrets on the matter. It‘s just too damned pretty to have any buyers remorse.

My only wish is that we had a little more at the end. Just a tad bit more of the ever after. A dash more detail. A smidgen more story.

What in the actual audacity did I just read. What in the ever loving universe was that ending? Why? How dare. I regret only because the next book is not immediately available to me.

I wish I could rate this book more than 5⭐️. Something about the writing style and the story kept me not just hooked, but in tears from the very first page. Why did I cry the whole way through? Honestly I haven‘t a clue. It‘s not a sad book. It‘s not an overwhelmingly happy book where you cry tears of joy, or a book that angers you until you sob. It defies categorization, and that makes it beautiful.

Ah this is the way to pass time waiting for your car at the car doctor! Onward to book 2. If I finish book 2 I will have reached my 2022 reading goal!

It took me a minute to read this due to a reading slump. But I think this book single handedly cured me. 100/10 recommendations.

“I hired a Forging artist with mind affinity to make a people repellent. Sadly, it doesn‘t last longer than a minute, but it makes for a delightfully useful walking stick.”
Enrique looked envious. “Well, my walking stick emits a bright light.”
Zofia felt a flare of pride. She had designed that stick.
Hypnos lifted his chin. “Mine can…”
Zofia ignored them. She had no interest in listening to two boys compare their sticks.

😂Need ppl repellent asap

So the last five books of this years reading goal are hiding from me, I‘ll read like 3 pages and be like “Nope!” And move on. However, here‘s one of the best dedications in a book ever.

Is it possible to give this book 75 stars due to how warm and cozy I feel after finishing it? I got surly every time my job interrupted my reading this fuzzy blanket of a book. Actual surly pouts occurred.

Considering the revenge plot, this was charmingly cute. Not quite a snuggly blanket of a book, but maybe a toasted marshmallow over a campfire kind of book. With a shot of vodka for solidarity.

I was not expecting to feel the things I felt during this holy rollercoaster ride of a book. I don‘t normally like books written primarily in letter format, but damn. I laughed, I cried and I very nearly threw my iPad in outrage. This book is worth every word I read, and is easily in the top like 10 of the books I‘ve read thus far this year. Well done.

Glorious reread before I FINALLY read its sequel. Only took me like six years to get around to it. Thankfully the written word doesn‘t really go anywhere. The first time I read it, I was on the couch at Easter and when I finished, my step brother was staring at me like I had two heads. Apparently he had noticed when I started and was stunned when i finished it in front of him like 2 hours later. I love doing that to people. 🤭

The alternative title for this book is Pride, Prejudice and Dragons. That being said, any Jane Austen purists probably shouldn‘t read this. It was a cute, if draconian, retelling of an amazing novel and I look forward to reading the next. I just hope it‘s the same main characters and not gonna hop to another sister. That would be rather irritating.

Well this was mildly traumatizing…. I can‘t even count the sheer number of times I had to go back and reread something because my brain was like: Nopity nope nope. Not absorbing that on the first or second read. Excellent book. But traumatic enough to require a happy book chaser.

Fitting that book 150 of 2022 is this glorious reread. My only question is if this is a duology or if I‘m waiting for another year or so for book 3. Oh well. Onward to the highly anticipated book two… at least I haven‘t lost that one….. yet. 🙄🙄🙄🙄

Me: Wandering around Barnes and Noble on the last day of their BOGO 50%. Sees newly released sequel to the above. Impulse buy.

Also me: Has paperback copy of the above, wants to reread it before reading the sequel.

Wicked As You Wish: In hiding, watching from an unknown location, presumably drinking a margarita or something with an umbrella, as I search my apartment like a burglar.

Me: Fine. Downloads the library book on Libby.

That moment when the book is creepy because of humans playing mind games and not a freaky supernatural boogeyman duo, even though they existed and by all rights were very creepy. Humans suck man.

The upside is this little connecting sentence between this book series and it‘s sister series:

“P.S. Meg said I need to work on how humans say sorry. I said giving you books is better.”

I agree. Books are better.

Did I just add the other 15 books to my shopping cart for a whopping total of $150? Yes. Yes I did. Did I then remove 5 or 6 books because I cannot financially justify that big of a purchase… also yes.😢 I will return for you my beloved book babies.
