Loved this dystopian world! It seems perfect- no death, no disease, no war, no hunger, no misery but the question becomes what to do about the ever growing population. Aside from the interesting setting, the characters are all so intriguing and you can‘t help but root for good to prevail. Lots of questions about loyalty and right vs wrong. There were lots of plot twists I did not see coming and I can‘t wait to dive into book 2! #seriesread2022

I read a lot of Fantasy, but I absolutely loved this present day novel. The story was heartwarming and sad. I fell in love with the Anishinaabe culture and everything I learned through this story. I felt like the setting itself became a character as well- it was so important to the story. Definitely recommend!

Phew- finally finished this series. This last one was a rollercoaster of emotions and I wasn‘t sure how they were going to end it and if everything would be resolved. I feel very satisfied with the ending and I will miss these characters. Still, in these dystopian worlds you are always left wondering what is next. #seriesread2022

The 2nd book in the series starts out a year after book 1. We learn more about Fletcher‘s lineage and background and together with his friends must try and save Hominum while battling both enemies within as well as the orcish army. I never do this, but I don‘t think I‘ll be reading the 3rd book. Just can‘t get into it and don‘t seem to love any of the characters. It‘s just so-so. #seriesread2022

I‘m loving this series! Mafi uses a unique visual to show Juliette‘s internal monologue which helps illustrate her changes. She‘s getting stronger internally and externally and it really helps to see and understand her internal struggles. It‘s really a book about self discovery more than anything but set in this dystopian world where war is always looming. On to the next in the series. #seriesread2022

This third book picks up right after Shadow of Light and is told from both Harley‘s and Draven‘s POVs. Harley is supposed to be a weapon but is tired of being controlled and really finds herself and her true family in this conclusion. There‘s a search for ancient scrolls, life lessons about fate vs free will, more supernatural creatures and of course always the power of love and friendship. I‘m left satisfied with the ending. #Seriesread2022

Interesting start to a series with elves, orcs and demons. Set mostly in a school where the gifted are taught the arts of summoning and using the demons they are bonded with in battles. There‘s this war looming that the children are being prepared to fight in. I‘m going to read the rest in the series but it‘s not my favorite yet. #SeriesRead2022

Wow. Not often a book can make you both laugh and cry. What a unique way to write a memoir. Each chapter begins with a different mix tape from a time in the author‘s life. The themes in the songs match the themes of the narrative. If you love music as much as I do, this book is a must. It‘s about love and loss and the beauty of life and music and feeling alive. Music really makes us feel our emotions, even one‘s we didn‘t know we might be feeling.

Book of Night | Holly Black

I see what the so-so raters mean; the plot was so different and unique it took awhile to get vested in the story. But I hung in there and was rewarded at the end. A plot twist I totally did not see coming! The second half of the book was much better but it did take me some time before I was interested. I love Holly Black‘s books and if you‘re a fan also, then this is a must read. If you are new to this author, I would start with the other series.
