Super fun, but it‘s so modern that sometimes it gets to you. Overall, still super fun and references the myths in a way that a fan will appreciate!

This was an interesting enough collection! I wish I had the paperback so that I could experience the formatting better! It also reminded me a lot of the Angel of history.

Abyss | Pilar Quintana
post image
Pickpick

Abyss is the first book I‘ve read in a long time that captures the inwardness and loneliness of an only child with messy parents. The novel also depicts the phenomenon of hyper-fixation. As an only child, this experience resonates with me, and I find it fascinating to see it portrayed in literature.

I‘m something
unreliable
and this
is a day for
poetry.
I‘m trying to understand why I liked this book so much and I don‘t know. Given that I don‘t have an answer, I don‘t entirely know how to recommend this book and how to write a review for it! I‘ll sum it up by saying that there are just some really wonderful moments that pull you in and honestly Eileen Myles is so much fun to read out loud!

Rituals of Parsing will live in my head rent-free but some of the poems have really cheesy and average bits that bring the collection down! Otherwise i like this debut!

This slightly darker take on the miscommunication trope was solid if you get through the cringe at the start!

Decent read with all the right elements. I just feel like there were too many plot holes and the main didn‘t have enough of a personality.

I DNFed this one! I just couldn‘t stand how the main character spoke! It just felt so out of place! And of course oblivious father and hunky love interest. If there was smut in here I would say this is perfect for people who have a adopted sibling but isn‘t sibling kink.
I am being harsh. I may start the book up again. Who knows.

This was a fun read! The chemistry was great even if one of the characters seemed a bit tstl at the start (she grows on you)! I feel like the second book will be better, but I‘m worried I‘ll forget the magic system by then!

This was a good read! I also read up a bit about HI/LO books while writing my review and it‘s a bit annoying that Amazon decided to put this one in for 7-9 years olds instead of sticking to YA. This was fun though!

While there isn't anything really wrong with the book, it just got slightly boring. We never really got into his time in London. Didn't really learn much about anyone. The main thing used to get things going in the book were the cats.

For an enemies to lovers in a supernatural academy, not much academy and not much in terms of enemies. Do people know what enemies are??!! Also the MC is 17 and we got hit with the you're not like other girls line and some growling I was like hmmmm this probably did good on booktok. But as a read this did go down quickly so I get why people will like this.

I wanted to get through a regency romance book because I was like this will be a fun light read. But no, it was so boring. Also, armpit licking is a weird kink and no one can tell me otherwise.

Chrissyreadit I totally agree about armpit …. 5mo
CoveredInRust Armpits are right up there with feet for me. 🤮 5mo
Rehesina @Chrissyreadit IKR! I was like how do you write this and publish it with a straight face! 5mo

I‘m not a sci-fi person but for this series I‘ll become one! Fantastic debut. Loved the interesting themes, but also how well written it was. The kind of thing that makes you want to slow down and read slowly!

Why am I so in love with the YA thriller genre?! How did this happen?! Do I love it more than regency romance now?

This was a good read for #spooktober! Also was a tour book that I blanked out on so now I‘m embarrassed to request another book! This one was good though so it‘s even worse because the author probably thinks I disappeared because I don‘t like it! :/

Blythe Baird's collection is beautifully mature. Some of the poems make you sad, but there's a sense of a person who has grown up in these pieces which helps a lot; which gives you hope. That our personalities are more than what broke us.

Thank you NetGalley and OldCastle books!
1922 is a short but interesting read that really sums up what the year 1922 would have felt like to someone living through it!
I don't think a reader will find everything included in this book interesting, that being said I would give it to anyone who likes history because Nick Rennison is a good writer.
Of course, I did feel like the book focused on some countries more than others.

Thank you NetGalley and The Passionate Pen for the chance to read and review the arc for 100 Nights with the Duke.

I can easily see why Jess Michaels has been able to publish 100 romance novels, and I'll probably check out more if I haven't already! This was a fun, light, read, with a lot of smut. I loved the twist, I didn't see that coming from Granny!

Love it when I get a good poetry book from #netgalley

“Come inside, then, & kiss me like you mean it.

Or, if you won‘t, at least leave me like you mean it.
Leave the windows open when you do.”
