Jesstifies I agree about so-so vibes. I really enjoyed the first half, and then struggled with how the plot resolved. Felt like an odd mix of atmospheric old world problems jammed together with a super pro-Google nerd fest :P 2mo
MiqueMarie @Jesstifies exactly. Lol 2mo
megzlynn I‘m doing the Modern Mrs. Darcy Challenge as well. I have one prompt left. I can‘t wait to finish. It‘s the first challenge I‘ve ever participated in! 2mo

Well, I've always felt torn between Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff, but when I originally took the #Pottermore sorting hat quiz, I was sorted into #Ravenclaw. I always said I was a Ravenclaw with a minor in Hufflepuff. Anyways, I had to redo my account for the new platform. I took the quiz again, and it sorted me into #Hufflepuff?

#ARC #fairytales
This stunning conclusion to the Autumn Fairy trilogy is both emotional and action-packed! Katy and Peter face their biggest challenges yet, both from within and without. The drama is organic. I laughed and cried, but I didn't feel like the author was contriving to make me cry. The world-building is fantastic! The denouement is very satisfying. I'd love for Christopher to have his own trilogy!

I received a free ARC of this book, and I am voluntarily posting my review.

I was excited to read about "mean girl" Gillian, but what I didn't realize until I started reading is that Gillian's story is based on King Thrushbeard. Retelling King Thrushbeard is risky, but Stengl excells at this sweet reimagining of a rather cringeworthy tale. She handles it with plenty of class, magic, humor, character growth, and romance. #fairytales #arc

cjbooklover Lol, I read the Martian for a book outside my comfort zone as well and I loved it! 7mo
MiqueMarie I just started. I'm hoping it's good! I'm a little thrown right now because there is a lot of explaining done in terms of math and science, but I'm gonna keep going with it, and see how it goes. 7mo

This is hands down one of the best books on the spiritual life I've ever read. I cannot recommend it highly enough! It's really helped me to grow spiritually, and given me a deeper understanding of The Little Way and Divine Mercy. It's broken down into small sections, which include a reflection and a short prayer for each day. The 3rd week was the most interesting and helpful to me. This is a book that I know I will revisit again and again.

"But it was from that day on that a legend began to grow up about the cream brumby, cunning as a fox. Stockmen talked of him round their summer campfires, or sung songs about him as they rode around a restless mob of cattle at night, and the cattle told the brumbies, so that they too knew, all over the mountains, the tales of the wild cream brumby."

"As I looked about me I felt that the grass was the country, as the water is the sea. The red of the grass made all the great prairie the colour of winestains, or of certain seaweeds when they are first washed up. And there was so much motion in it; the whole country seemed, somehow, to be running."

"It was foolish indeed—thus to run farther and farther from all who could help her, as if she had been seeking a fit spot for the goblin creature to eat her in his leisure; but that is the way fear serves us: it always sides with the thing we are afraid of."

"...— and in spite of her willfulness, in spite of her melancholy, earthbound heart, some of that love had stayed inside her, had worked on her like sun on the earth, had driven forth a crop that neither the fiercest fire of passion nor its stormiest anger could completely destroy"
