Wonderful fantasy #romantsy! The heroine, Leena, is just lovely! An unjustly evoked charmer with a spine of steel and a magic book full of magical beasts. While Leena is the best, her hero, Noc is just amazing he is an undead assassin who has been tasked with Leena‘s assassination. he‘s cursed to have everyone he loves die, and balances caring for a guild of undead assassins while not caring too much. An alpha without the toxic masculinity.💕

This cover is 😍. This amazing fantasy sequel is the story of a romance between two broken, scarred and sad people who just so happen to be legends known as the hero Shadow Fox and the villain Poison Flame. It‘s the first superhero story set in a fantasy world that I‘ve ever read.

Between a pick and a so-so... I loved how the hero Max was able to see the heroine, Juliet, more clearly than anyone else, but found that clear communication could have helped reslolve the story, and I don‘t usually like when this is a main plot issue. #romantsy

I listens to this as a palate cleanser after my last book and it was a great discussion of women who are unruly in a specific way, and how they take charge of their own destiny and can be inspirations to other women. #audiobook

I struggled with this book. It was an important story about Sally Horner, the real person whose life was probably the inspiration for Nabokov‘s “Lolita”. The author makes a really valid point about the need for Sally‘s story to be told, and for how she was used and abused by her kidnapped and by pop culture through Lolita. Trigger warnings abound and I was frankly shocked by the quotes from Nabokov‘s work and how slimy his characters seem.

ljuliel This is one true crime I probably won‘t read. I don‘t think I‘d want to read the details on this one. Yuk. 2w
CoffeeK8 @ljuliel I almost stopped a couple times but at the end I felt like I owed it to Sally‘s memory to read her story not the icky Lolita version of her story. 2w
ljuliel Yea, I know what you mean. There was a new book out a couple years ago that I checked out at the library. It was really good and written well, but the subject matter was pretty rough . How an older man made “ friends” with her family, how he targeted this girl and built up trust with her mom to allow him to spend a LOT of alone time with her. It was disgusting, but I wanted to keep reading to see what happened to the girl in the end. 2w
CoffeeK8 @ljuliel exactly! 1w
