Hands down ended up the favorite of this series, so far. But I was so angry (confused?) at first. I didn‘t expect the dark twist (perhaps I should have?) and was so angry at Tamlin! But the city was a shock, and her growth was inspiring. And I must say Rhysand is a surprise. Of course blissful peace and growth eternal would be so boring 🤣 so there‘s the impending doom, war & conspiracy, too. #recentlyread #nospoilers #fantasy

Anger. Surrender. Bliss. Devastation. Triumph. All those emotions and more are encountered in this initial book of the series. I cried. I cheered. I groaned and winced. By the end I was rooting for Feyre with all my heart, and couldn‘t wait to dive into book 2. #recentlyread #nospoilers #fantasy

P.S. Thank you to a friend of mine for prompting me to move these up the TBR and crack open the box!

One day I will get better at posting timely reviews, but for now I can at least catch up a little bit. 🙃 This book unraveled like the threads of a tapestry. Slowly and intriguingly pulling the reader in until the final climactic end. I won‘t spoil anything, but I must say it was slightly…disappointing, in some ways. I don‘t know if I could choose another ending, but I do wish for better. Others may judge differently. #nospoilers #historicfiction

2. Sci-fi, fantasy and mystery - suspense & imagination

There haven‘t been too many books this year that have sucked me in and taken me for a ride, and I miss that feeling of not being able to turn the pages fast enough. 🥹🙃 Borrowed this from the library Friday, and before our trip to visit the family in NJ on Saturday (and during) finished it, cover to cover. Paranormal & Fae is just my ☕️. Onto number 2, ASAP! #recentlyread #paranormal #nospoilers #fastpaced

annahenke I‘ve always wondered about these books! 5mo
aa_guer2021 @annahenke think someone exactly not the typical crime fighter suddenly seeks revenge and finds out there is more to her life than she has ever known, and also more to the world (in the paranormal sense) than she ever thought possible. If you like that kind of thing, it really sucks you in. 5mo

The story continues from Wake. Same cast of characters, with a few more teachers mixed in. The school drama continues, but there is definitely ⚠️ for predatory behavior (vague to not give the plot away). I am thankful I had a couple of hours, because I literally read it that fast. Sucks you in, and you just hold on! #recentlyread #nospoilers #dreams #onesittingread #imagination #school #drama 😳

This is YA, but with a bit of an intense subject matter. (School drama, drugs, ⚠️ for abuse) It requires some suspension of belief, because dreams and the like. But it‘s a slow burn of a book, by the end I was flipping pages as fast I could, waiting to get to the end. Also, I am very glad I also had book 2! #recentlyread #nospoilers #scifi #dreams #fastpaced #imagination 😳🙂😃🤔

LibrarianRyan I agree. I love this series. 7mo
aa_guer2021 @LibrarianRyan such a find. Both were $3! 7mo
LibrarianRyan now about the only way to find them is in a big compilations book Don't close your eyes. I like that these books are relatively small, but when all 3 are bound together it becomes a behemoth that turns away some people. 7mo

#JANUARY2022 recap has me firmly planted in a re-read of Outlander, having recently binged the Netflix Series. And this time so far this reads differently. And has actually given me an interesting evaluation of myself, as I have changed and adapted through the years… I even understand more the 🔺fate of Claire‘s life. And the pressure. #outlander continues. #historialfiction #romance #timetravel 📚❤️

BooksNBowls I‘ve been trying to make it through Drums for 2 months now lol you make me feel bad 😅 10mo
aa_guer2021 @BooksNBowls don‘t feel bad at all. The only way I have been able to do this is because I focused exclusively on this series, and read only that one book at a time. And I am fast reader, when motivated to be, and since I just saw the show, a lot of things are fresh in my mind. If I was distracted, or had less time, it would take me a lot longer. I committed to getting through them, as I feel ready. 🥲 10mo
BooksNBowls @aa_guer2021 yeah I‘ve taken a month hiatus from it but I think I‘ll pick it back up next month and try to finish. I‘m about 45% through it. I just needed a little break. I can‘t wait to get to the books they haven‘t came out with yet on tv (edited) 10mo

📚 No, I normally like chunksters. I am happily re-reading (and reading) the full Outlander series now, and each book is longer than the one above, some significantly. 🤯🥲 I am thankful I have the concentration, time and chance to read more again! 🥰 I do have one that I still haven‘t conquered, which I will try to get to! 🤔😬

To recover a love that happens once-in-a-lifetime. And at an interesting moment for her, too. And then of course, thrown into the thick of things. Fergus! Laoghaire! 🤔😝😠😨 This time I understand more.

🥲🇫🇷🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 This book. Set in both times it balances the historical with the personal and the powerful. Character growth, progression, and depth.

Stoned sloths, rabid hyenas, scavenging vultures and cuddly pandas all get debunked in this wild, funny and educational romp of a book.

Happy to report progress on the #bookspin BINGO in combining regular 📖 and 🎧📖 to get to the end. An honest and unflinching (yet personal and sweeping) narrative of the challenges and triumphs of the early LDS church this shows the resilience despite prosecution, the unity despite opposition and the strength to see a 💒 built and the foundation of Zion. It gave me perspective, and a deeper understanding. #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks ❤️🙏🏻
