🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 What a beautifully written book. This book is fantastic in helping children to understand that the ever changing future can be scary, but it is also something to look forward to.

🌟🌟🌟🌟 This book is an honest account of the horrors of Auschwitz. Everyone should read this book in order to never forget the horrors of the past. The reason i gave it 4stars is because it is beautifully written. However, i found it difficult to follow all the characters introduced as they would appear,&then not be heard of for another couple of chapters. By which time you have been introduced to several other characters. #LitsyAtoZ2020

I am really enjoying this series. Even though i have watched the films, i think the books are even better. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

JenlovesJT47 The books are so good! I saw the first movie without knowing anything about it and thought it was okay. Then I started reading the books before the second movie came out and I was obsessed!! So good!! 1mo

I really enjoyed this book.

The old romantic in me was not happy about the ending, in fact i was gutted about the outcome.it was one of those situations where you wished you could unread what you have read to stop it from happening. However, i can see why it had to end like that.

Its a really easy read, and i would highly recommend it. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I struggled with this book. I found part 3 was the best part of the novel, but i feel the story had dragged on a little bit. This cpuld be because i was listening to it as an audio, and i may revist the trilogy again at a later date. 🌟🌟🌟

I really enjoyed this book, but probably not as much as the others. Hester as a character has really started to annoy me and i think that has kind of spoilt it for me. Still a good read though. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book is fantastic, it is beautiful written with two narrators. This book highlights a massive divide among the americans because of the colour of their skin. Everyone is guilty of stereotyping and are not even aware that they are doing it and this is clear in this book.

I read this book as part of the big library read and i am really glad i did! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Wow! I have never read any of Michael Morpurgo's books, and i am so glad i started with this one. This book is so powerful! It is well written and tells the honest truth of the men who fought in the wars. It highlights the strength of brotherly love as brothers and conrades. Even though it is a story about ww1 it is still unique.

If tou do read this book, make sure tou have tissues ready. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Wow! I can not recommend this book enough! It takes a little while to get use to the 4 different narrators, but it is so worth it. The 4 different narrators draw you in, and you find yourself living through what the charactersare experiencing. The 4 narrators allows the reader to see there were innocent people living in Hitlers Germany and guilty ones as well. With the innocent ones out weighing the guilty. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I really like Katie Fforde, but i must admit this wasnt one of my favourites. I just couldn't connect with the main female character. In fact sometimes she just irritated me. The plot itself was good although somewhat predictable but that might be because i have read so many chicklits. 🌟🌟🌟

I tried, and even though i promised myself i would not give up on any books this year. I have had to bail on this one. It feels like it has been written on the back of the success of the mortal instruments, but is a pretty pointless book. 👎👎👎

Absolutely loved this book. I loved the characters and how easily the plot flowed. I did start to get a little bit annoyed when there was no explanation on what had happened to society to result in this way of life. However, with one sentence half way through the book i was given the answer. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Wow! This book was amazing! I listened to it on audio and i am glad i did as i may have found it a bit of a struggle to follow, and would have possibly given up. What these women went through is horrendous and i felt for them with every word i heard. I got goosebumps whenever kindness or support was shown to them - so much so i just wanted to cry for them. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

How can I have finished the series........no more Clary, Jace, Alec, Isabelle, Simon or Magnus. I have read all the books back to back that I am going to feel somewhat empty without them! This series has been fantastic and I could not put any of the books down. Although the ending has left a few unanswered questions, but i have a feeling they will be found in Cassandra's other books. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 (for this book) 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 (for the series)

readingjedi I really enjoyed this series too 🙂 8mo
Nicole961 You can read Dark Artifices trilogy it is about the Blackthorns and Emma set in LA Institute and it answers most of the unanswered questions in Mortal instruments...It is basically a sequel series and you even get to see the MI gang throughout the series. 8mo

It took a little while to get into this book (hence the 4 stars instead of 5) but i am glad i stuck with it.

Characters are a little but difficult to connect with to start with. However, with time it all falls into place.

Book 1 has definitely set up book 2 for a strong plot.

The only good thing about this book is it didn't end up on my DNF list. I can honestly say I will not be recommending this book to anyone.

I could not connect with any of the characters - particularly Laura. Who has sex with a werewolf withing seconds of meeting him, then two days later move in with him!!

There was no real plot and what small plot there was, was predictable. 👎👎👎👎👎

Another great novel! Although there were some parts which were a little bit predictable, i could not put it down. I loved the constant reference to the 80s.

I can not wait to see what Ernest Cline publishes next.

Armada / Armed | Ernest Cline

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

rretzler Ah, the Bene Gesserit litany from Dune! Love that book, and Armada was great too! 9mo

I really enjoyed this book, I couldn't put it down. I liked the fact there were strong female characters especially when gamers are mostly seen to be men. This book really made me think about the way society is heading with its reliance on technology and its lack of interest on the impact we have had to our planet. Highly recommended this book.
