I read this a few years ago, but having just read the remaining 3 books in the series, I decided to read this one.

I wasn't sure what I'd think of this one after reading The Angel's Game and The Prisoner of Heaven, both of which I didn't love as much as The Shadow of the Wind. But I'm so glad I finished the series by reading this book! It was just as good as The Shadow of the Wind. All of the storylines from the entire series were brought back together and everything was explained. I love the way Zafon weaves a story!

I really wanted to like this one, and was very interested in Mina's story. The parts with Margot's story, though, almost seemed like they were written by someone else- the writing and dialogue, as well as Margot's thoughts and actions just didn't always seem to make sense.

I didn't like this one nearly as much as the other books in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books series. I thought it got very wordy in places, and could have been a much shorter book.

Andrew65 Well done on finishing 👏👏👏 2w
Soubhiville What a gorgeous photo! Is this a table? I love it. I find Zafron‘s writing a bit dense, and a bit more challenging to get through than I‘m often in the mood for. But so very quotable too. 2w

Despite Mrs. Bennet's best efforts, Lizzie doesn't want to get married- she wants to become a barrister at her dad's law office. Despite Mr. Bennet's best efforts to discourage her, Lizzie takes it upon herself to try to figure out who murdered Mr. Bingley's brother-in-law. The top suspect? Mr. Bingley.

Another book finished during the #NovelNovember Readathon! This was a fun retelling of Pride and Prejudice as a murder mystery!

Next up for #NovelNovember Readathon.

Yes, I know I'm reading The Cemetary of Forgotten Books out of order of when they were written, but there are some that suggest this should be read after The Prisoner of Heaven, as it is referenced at the end of that book.

I may start reading it and realize I should have read it before The Prisoner of Heaven, but we'll see. 😂

@Andrew65

Andrew65 Be interesting to hear how it goes reading this one third. 3w
CoffeeNBooks @Andrew65 I might have made a terrible mistake, lol! 🤣 We'll see... 3w

While I initially didn't love this one as much as I loved The Shadow of the Wind, I was intrigued by the backstories of the characters. The ending left me not wanting to wait a minute to start The Angel's Game to see what happens next!!

@Soubhiville

Graywacke It‘s a prequel? 3w
CoffeeNBooks @Graywacke It's a sequel, but it has lengthy flashbacks that give the backstories of some of the characters (so according to some, it could also be considered a prequel). 3w
Graywacke @CoffeeNBooks I think I might have skipped this and gone straight to Angel‘s Game ☺️… was a while ago. 3w
CoffeeNBooks @Graywacke This is actually the 3rd book, but some have suggested it should be read 2nd. I'm getting ready to start The Angel's Game right now- we'll see if I should have read that one before this one. 😂 3w

I read two completely unrelated books today that both referenced The Count of Monte Cristo- such a cool coincidence! I love book references within books, and I'm glad I've read Monte Cristo and fully understood the allusions.

megnews I love book references in books too. I also like when I read unrelated things and they both mention the same thing. I take it as a sign I‘m supposed to learn more about it! 😊 3w

@sblbooks

CoffeeNBooks Halfway through the book, my thoughts were that while certainly not a happy story, it's compelling nonetheless. By the end I realized that it was a bittersweet story about second chances, for everyone in the story, in some way. 3w

🍺 This was such a fun cozy mystery! Sloan finds a dead body floating in the fermenting tub of the local brewery where she works, and her recently- estranged husband, Mac, becomes the prime suspect. Despite her anger at him, she's sure he's not capable of murder, so she tries to figure out who the real murderer is.
