Finale (Caraval, #3) | Stephanie Garber

And that, as they say, is that. I couldn‘t have loved this series more.

Mshookquilts So sad for you that it is finished. 5mo
TiaQueso @Mshookquilts it‘s ok. She wrapped everything up perfectly. I felt very at peace when I finished it. 5mo

“Only those who persevere can find their true ending.”
I‘ve had this book in my possession, a birthday gift, for over a month. I can barely stand to begin reading it, knowing as soon as I do, this beautiful series will begin to end for me.

I firmly believe J. K. Rowling has another story to tell. This was not it. So dry, and yet seemingly unending. I muscled through the book because I wanted to love it, but I will not be picking up the sequel.

Mshookquilts I‘m sorry it was disappointing. 6mo

Such a cute, quick read. The pictures really make this book. We had a lot of fun with it.

Husband asked me to read this series with him. The first book ended on such a cliffhanger I‘m kicking myself for not putting the second on hold at the same time.

Mshookquilts The whole part of this that I love...is that your husband asked you to read this with him...meaning he is reading the series. We‘ve made a reader out of him! 1y
TiaQueso @Mshookquilts haha, he and I have read together since the beginning. This series though, he found and wanted to read. 1y

Wow! My daughter had to stay home sick today and I felt so trapped at home. Picked up this book and didn‘t put it down till it was finished. It sucked me in an pulled me away from reality for hours, which is the best I could ask from any book. Absolutely enthralling and tinted with glitter. A must read for anyone who needs a little escape.

A Wrinkle in Time | Madeleine L'Engle
post image
Pickpick

In her introduction, Madame Le‘Engle states that a child has much more capacity for understanding than an adult. This proved to be very true with my two children who sat enraptured as we listened to this story. Even my three yo could explain the complex story line when I was confused. If for no other reason, this story is a pick because I was able to see the world through my children‘s eyes for just a little while.

Freaking cat started eating my hair halfway through. Anyway. Great book! And such a quick read, I loved the hint of mystery and touch of romance embedded in this fun little pirate adventure. Doesn‘t hurt that the protagonist was a strong, intelligent female!

This series was absolutely amazing. I love the premise of a post WWIII retelling of fairy tales with magic and an interplanetary society, cyborgs, the whole deal. I fell in love with the characters, especially Scarlet. But this last book took me 6 weeks to read... I just could not get into it. It was necessary to finish the story, but I felt like the authoress spent so much time building up anticipation that the climax failed to deliver.

The story was interesting, about one of our local rehabilitation facilities, but not very attention holding for my two year old who picked it out because of the pictures. The illustrations lived up to our expectations, however, with lovely pastel watercolors and a beautiful imagining of manatees.

We always try to go to the library Fridays after school. They close early that day, but then we are well supplied for the weekend. Jiraiya was giggling all the way home so I‘m pretty sure he‘d say this one is a “pick.”

Freaking book made me cry. Super depressing book, and it took me a while to get into, but it was riveting once I did.
Now I‘m going to go read something less maudlin.

Milk and Honey | Rupi Kaur
post image
Pickpick

This book is a not easy to read. It was intense and raw, real and at times truth to the point of vulgarity. It was unashamedly sexual and passionate. Rupi Kaur ripped my heart out, stomped on it, and then wrapped it up in warmth and empowerment and light. I wanted to post every other page as a quote, but I guess I‘ll stick with the one that made me find the book in the first place. “I want to apologize to all the women I have called pretty.”

RaimeyGallant Nice review. 2y

Sicko Daddy skipped story time and had to read this one after. Dee Dee‘s favorite part was that the dragon didn‘t die, it left on its own.

Finally got my reading groove back with this book, it‘s definitely an easy read, but it was fun, clean and imaginative, if a little predictable. Be ware, it ends on a freaking cliff hanger!! I had to go get the next one at the library as soon as I finished.

I loved this book. First book I‘ve read in a week since my second was born. The ending was a complete surprise for me and I‘m usually pretty good about predictions. But the best part of the book for my sappy side was that Bronwyn and Nate get back together in the epilogue 😂
