This was a lot of fun! I have not read much Manga, and had heard great things about this series. I definitely enjoyed it. Looking forward to continuing the series. 4.5⭐️ #manga

Finished my first #ChunksterChallenge2022 read! 902 pages! I listened to it on audiobook, which I highly recommend for this series. This is book 9 and it is definitely not a standalone. Though a flaw of this book is summarizing too much of past books. Trimming some of that would have improved the book. I still enjoyed all the amazing characters. 4⭐️

This was a gripping suspense thriller about a mysterious community with something very dark occurring. I am glad I didn‘t know much going in and I highly recommend you do the same! 4.5⭐️

Trademark KA characters and dialog, which I enjoyed. However, the book just needed a bit more editing. The suspense part of the story is weak, I enjoyed the ending but the path there was meh. 3⭐️

Besides finishing what I‘m reading:

I‘m sad to say I‘m bailing on this one. It is just so unpleasant and difficult content to read. I‘m simply not in a place to read it. I made in 50% because it is a well constructed world with really interesting Sci-fi elements. However the cruelty, though accurate to the history this is inspired by, is just too difficult to read.
Sadly this was my #bookspin book

Love this! The books/series I recommend the most:

The House in the Cerulean Sea-TJ Klune
Hidden Legacy series-Ilona Andrews
The Others series-Anne Bishop
Wall of Winnipeg and Me-Mariana Zapata
The Wallflowers-Lisa Kleypas
The Secret-Julie Garwood
In Death series-JD Robb
Brown sisters series-Talia Hibbert

ravenlee I love The Others, and the Brown sisters, and Ilona Andrews. I haven‘t read the second trilogy books yet because I‘m waiting for the third one so I can binge them all. Which will require revisiting the entire series, naturally. So that will be a good month! 2w

I do adore this series, and while this is a pick, it‘s probably my least favorite. Just because the conflict, though it makes sense, is due to lack of communication. That is a trope that drives me bonkers-just talk!! Though there are reasons and the resolution was good, the journey was frustrating at times. This is book 13 of the Immortals After Dark series, they don‘t really work as standalones. 3.5⭐️

This is a mess, and not good and thankfully it was a KU read so I didn‘t “pay” for it. A Snow White retelling with Paranormal elements, which in theory sounds great, but there is just too much going on. This needs a lot of edits, but hey, the cover is pretty…1.5⭐️

My #November pick for #12Booksof2021

For as much as I love romance, this year was not great for romance imo. This was an exception. Absolutely charming characters, found family and an excellent romance. This author was a new find for me this year and I look forward to reading more from her!

My #NewYearSpecial #20in4 wrap-up:

Well over 20 hours of reading, I didn‘t run a timer the last couple days though.

Finished everything above except Mexican Gothic, which I just started yesterday.
2 new favorites: The Way of Kings & Razorblade Tears
Enjoyed everything but All the Feels & The Holiday Swap were just ok.
Sadly both were mildly disappointing, which is a trend this past year for contemporary romances.

I am so on the fence with this one, I live the representation of plus size character and ADHD. But I just did not like the characters that much. I think the banter is a little mean spirited, and just not something I enjoy reading. 3⭐️
