4.5⭐. What a journey!♥ I would give it 5⭐if it weren't for the end. I felt that the end was rushed a little bit. It was good don't get me wrong but i needed some more details about everything that happened.

It Starts with Us | Colleen Hoover

The biggest 5⭐ I've ever given goes to this book. It's so funny and full of love, but also it doesn't not have any sadness. However, the good moments are more than the heartbreaking ones, so I absolutely wholeheartedly love it ♥

This book is something else I'm telling you 😂♥ it started with a funny quote and ended with one too I laughed so hard both times that I want to read it again right now😂
Ps: the 1st quote in the picture is in the wedding vows at the end😂 and a 15 year old said it as a joke but Considerate Atlas put it in his wedding vows even though it was not supposed to be 😂😂

1. No I don't have a real book shelf but I designated a shelf in my wardrobe for my books 😂. I don't have any space for bookshelves so I had to improvise and I don't have a lot of books anyway so it had to do.
2. By Author and then of course by series and then by the order I bought them in because I'm crazy like that 😂😂

3⭐ I feel like it was just a filler book in the story. Not much happened untill the end and the end is the reason why this book gets even 3⭐ with out that ending I would have given it barely 1.5⭐. I can only hope that Juliette really changes in the next book. I'm going to be skipping fracture me for now but I'll go back to it in a while because I love warner too much to read from Adam's pov and see his hatred for warner.

5⭐ I got to know and love warner. It was very good and it made me want to read the whole series this time with all it's parts because the first time I read the main parts of the story which was still only 3 parts (Shatter Me, Unravel Me and Ignite Me) this time I'll read everything to get the full picture.

5? this was the first book I read after the "reading block" I loved it so much that I wanted to test if it was just a fluke and I'm still not able to read (because it tokk me a while to finish) or am I really going to enjoy reading again and that is how I started The Fine Print. It's a really good story and I didn't know the killer till the very end which made me love the book that much more. I hate it when I know ➡

Seeking_Serenity the truth earlier than intended by the author and this author managed to keep me in the dark till they decided to reveal the murderer. 12mo

The Fine Print | Lauren Asher
post image
Pickpick

4⭐ It was a good book and it actually was the one to really get me back to reading because of how much I enjoyed it. I had to take away a star because I just hate the miscommunication trope. It frustrates me so much how the characters are always not saying anything. WE ALL KNOW IT WILL SOLVE EVERY PROBLEM YOU HAVE SO WHY THE FUCK ARE WE NOT SHARING IT!!! but overall this was pretty enjoyable even with the miscommunication.

5⭐ I loved learning about mythology during my college years and before starting my final exams for my last year of college I started reading this book and I was so excited becausefor me it was excellent. Then right after my last exam more than a year ago my head said "nope! We're not reading anymore" But fortunately that passed and as soon as I managed to hold a book for more than 5 seconds I went back to this one and I finished it today. ➡

Seeking_Serenity I'm so happy that I managed to finish it and I might be biased a little but I LOVEDDD this book so much that I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes reading about greek mythology! It's so well written and engaging. 12mo
julieclair I had the same reaction after college graduation. I went out and purchased a trendy best seller without any literary value whatsoever. Reading that one book “cured” me and I went back to reading good books. 😆 12mo
Seeking_Serenity @julieclair oh I wish there was anything that cured me I just kept on trying to read every so often till my brain accepted reading again. I think I was not able to read because I was so stressed in college and I read a lot for my projects and exams along with reading 100 books that has nothing to do with college for my reading challenge on goodreads that my head overloaded on books and stopped liking it 😂💔 12mo

julieclair 100 books on top of your college reading? Yikes!!! No wonder your head got overloaded! 🤯 12mo
Seeking_Serenity @julieclair yeah when I'm stressed or sad or feeling anything I can't handle on my own I like to read a lot and that year was too hard for me so I didn't think rationally. 12mo

Well after a whole year of struggling to read even a page of a book I think I'm back to reading again! I've read like 5 books in the last 3 weeks and With every book I finish I feel the need to start a new one because I feel very excited about finishing a book 😂
Last year, I struggled a lot with my anxiety. I even was depressed for a while. But then everything got better thank God!. I started my first job as a graduate ➡

Seeking_Serenity An it helped me to get through my depression. I was so happy doing my job and enjoying teaching little kids that I forgot everything about my problems. And for that, I'm eternally thankful! What I want to say now is that even if you feel that you're drowning in misery and depression everything will hopefully get better one day, so don't stop fighting. It's easier to give up, but you'll be more proud if you fought and won! ♥ 12mo

I have a question for you all. I'm having a kind of reading block. I feel like I've lost my passion and I am not able to get out of it , so I wanted you to tell me what you do when you go through this because I'm so frustrated and I really want to read. When I start a book I barely read 5 pages before losing interest again.

Cazxxx It‘s never happened to me but I was thinking maybe audiobooks? I don‘t know if that‘s helpful or not but certain books on audio engage me more 2y
Lauram Audiobooks, reading a book from a favorite author, and setting a timer and focusing for 30 minutes have helped me. Good luck! 2y
TheKidUpstairs When this happens to me, I either turn to a favourite lighter genre (for me it is either rom com or cozy-ish mystery) OR (because sometimes even that doesn't work) I just give in to it, binge watch something, and know that eventually it will pass. 2y

Jas16 I tend to reread an old favorite. 2y
Ruthiella Rereading a favorite works for me. 2y
BarbaraBB I always read a thriller or a book from #Persephone publishers, they mostly are so soothing and uplifting! Good luck 🍀 2y
thebacklistbook I take a different approach and accept that reading isn't for me during that time. Instead I will enjoy a movie or crochet/something that keeps my hands and mind occupied. Or you could shake it up and listen to audio for a while/ pick either fiction or non fiction depending on what you are struggling with. 2y
Megabooks Count me on team reading an old favorite! 2y
Megabooks I‘m sorry you‘re having this problem. 2y
LKK526 I just went thru something like this. No matter what I chose to read I was unsatisfied. It lead to me reading a lot of crappy books. I don‘t really have any other hobbies to occupy my time. I just powered thru until I came across Unmask Alice which I reviewed on Litsy and that seemed to be my good luck charm. Sometimes you just have to eventually outrun the feeling. Good luck 2y
LKK526 All these observations are great advice😊 2y
Seeking_Serenity Thank you all for your advice I really appreciate it. I will try some of your suggestions and hopefully something will work for me. I'm sorry for not replying till now but I was really busy with work and my cousin's wedding .And I'm so desperate to read because I don't have any other hobby and living without reading is so hard for me because I get stuck in my head a lot and it drains me mentally and I struggle with my anxiety because of it. 2y

LitStephanie I liked the fairy tale aspect, and it is still a unique story. I wouldn't even really call it a retelling; more like it is using some very old theme and plot ideas. Totally agree every bit of this book was great! 2y

I was thinking that I'll not be able to achieve my goal for this year since july maybe ? But I did it and I can't believe that I managed to do this! This was such a hectic year for me and I didn't really read that much (or so I thought) it is a weird feeling to be able to achieve my goal with all the problems and things that kept me unmotivated to do anything at all this year. I'm ecstatic that I was able to do it!!!

Vansa What a delightful professor! 3y
Seeking_Serenity @Vansa I can't wait to read it honestly! And she is the best professor I've ever encountered! She genuinely cares for us and listens to what we want to say. She even goes out with us when she feels that we're not feeling well! She is more like a mother than a professor if I'm being honest. 3y

4⭐ I thought that hamlet would be my all time favourite shakesperean play, but it isn't. I don't know if it's because I had really high hopes for it or what, but I didn't like it as much as his other plays. It was good and kept me interested, but it have any effect one by the end. I liked some quotes and some parts, but it wasn't how I expected it you know?
