I‘m disappointed with this, I loved the first 2 but this one was just ok. The narration (especially the beginning) was all over the place with several narrators and jumping around the timeline. It also lake the surprise factor found in the first 2 and had a lot of info dump. But by they end I was still interested in what was going on so that‘s something.

Lovesbooks87 Felt the same way! 1d
Cityofamber @Lovesbooks87 it made me so sad because I loved the first 2, and I was on sure a great streak of 5 ⭐️ books 😬😭 1d
Lovesbooks87 @Cityofamber agree. When I finished it I was like seriously! 1d

This book was fun, but it was so cheesy (especially the romance) that it was funny- which probably wasn‘t the author‘s intention. 😂🤷‍♀️

I found this book to be repetitive and it felt way too much like Dark Matter (which I loved). Because of that I was bored and it lacked the element of surprise.

This was a filler book. It wasn‘t very interesting and not much happened. I‘m hoping I like book 3 more.

Four Dead Queens | Astrid Scholte

I liked this book but wish it focused on the fantasy aspects more (ie world building and political intrigue) and less on the murder mystery plot. Also the romance felt very insta lovey and I wasn‘t a fan of that. I guess you could say I wasn‘t a fan of the plots focused on Keralie which is a shame since she is the main character.

Final #BFC update:
Goals- 4 workouts a week- the only week I “failed” on this was last week due to a long bad migraine episode.
12 books total- I read 18 total. I‘m always unsure of number of books goals because I read a wide range of long books and short books so so I‘m thinking next time I‘ll set goals about getting through subscription books are specific books? 🤷‍♀️

wanderinglynn There‘s no failing in #BFC, especially if you were ill. (Migraines suck!) There‘s only progress—just that sometimes the progress is one step at a time. 😉 Way to go! 🙌🏻 A great 6 weeks. 2mo
AprilMae No failing, only learning and self care! Great job with the progress!!! 2mo

I liked this book, however there were some things that brought down my enjoyment of it. The things I liked include are the friendships and how real they felt with the ups and downs, the grief was well done as was showing how life can go far from plans. What I didn‘t like was the timeline, she jumped ahead months/years but important things happened in between so she had to go back and tell us those things, it didn‘t flow well. #BOTM #BOTMBacklist

8little_paws Would you recommend it specifically on audio? I can get it via audio at my library and it's fairly high on my list. Or should I grab a paper copy instead? 3mo
Cityofamber @8little_paws I liked the audiobook, just make sure you pay attention to the dates so you know when the jumped a few years/months ahead :) 3mo
8little_paws Thank you! I was thinking of starting a new audiobook to listen to while I knit/crochet. Perhaps this'll be it. I find I can focus really well on audiobooks while crafting. 3mo
