Yep, that's right. I found my Ilvermorny house in Pottermore. 😊 #harrypotter #ilvermorny #thunderbirdhouse #ravenclaw

The big bad Wolf, ladies and gentlemen. I think I'm going to like this guy.

I'm probably in the minority here, but Cinder was just okay to me. It was a bit too predictable even for a Cinderella retelling. I wish the history and world was a bit more fleshed out, the characters a little deeper. But it promises enough that I'm going to continue on to Scarlet.

ReadingOver50 I read this one too. I thought it was ok but not great. I have no desire to read the next books in the series. 4y

I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. But hot damn, look at that cover! Also, Baymax and Belgian waffle. 😁

Gah! I can't believe it's over! For those who like everything tied up with a nice little ribbon might be a little disappointed. There are some loose ends left, which I don't mind at all. I'm going to miss everyone... 😢

I get mostly ebooks cause I live in an apartment and I don't have a lot of room for paper books and I'm emotionally incapable of parting with books even ones I didn't really enjoy. But the faves get the triple treatment. #savegansey #theravencycle #theravenking

Elora.mitchell What did you think of that ending?? I loved it! 4y
bookish.hummingbird I'm not done yet! I'm about halfway through and reading slow cause I don't want it to end! 😭 4y
Elora.mitchell Oh my goodness--I understand that! I went the other route and read it the day it came out because I didn't want to accidentally read a spoiler. But I want to have a nice long reread of the series. :) 4y

What a crazy book! We have giant guardians, ancient witches, dark monsters, resurrected animals and a lake that doesn't ripple. It has sweet parts, sad parts, and parts that frankly creeped me out a little. And mixed in with all of that, Maggie still managed a little humor here and there. 5⭐️

I'm only in book 3 of The Raven Cycle and I'm already dreading the end of the series. Thanks Maggie Stiefvater for the signed hardcovers (seen here behind the White Rabbit) and book hugger (seen here behind Star Lord who is stalking the White Rabbit)!

ReadingOver50 Currently reading The Raven Boys but want to read the series. 4y
Puredragonstar I'm collecting funkos too!!!! I love the white rabbit, I haven't got him yet hopefully soon! 4y

On this fine, mostly cloudy Sunday of the SF Bay Area, I'm about to start the 3rd book of The Raven Cycle. Oooh, that line creeps me out in a good way. 😎 #savegansey #theravencycle #bluelilylilyblue #maggiestiefvater

Argh, my heart! What this book did to my heart! Who would think I would cheer for a murderer and mourn for a self-destructive sociopath? Damn you @maggie_stiefvater! 5 emotional ⭐️. #savegansey #thedreamthieves #theravencycle

I finally finished A Gathering of Darkness (by VE Schawb)! Not because it was tedious, but because things are crazy at work. 😑 It was a slower start than A Darker Shade of Magic, but it didn't disappoint in the end. I must say, Lila is equal parts infuriating and awesome. 😆 4.5 ⭐️

The Golem and the Jinni | Helene Wecker

A wonderful magical realism book set in 1899 New York City. It provides a unique perspective of America during the Gilded Age through the eyes of the two title characters. The two magical beings found themselves alone, trapped and trying to adjust to the massive, foreign city.

5-stars. It's short, but in no way a sweet story. And despite its appearance, this is not a book for very young kids. 😅 If you're a fan of Rothfuss' work, try this out. The ending will surprise you.

Archivist Wasp has to be one of my favorite books of all time. It and its author are not very well-known, but I don't care. I love it. What somewhat unknown books/authors do you guys love?

I can't believe I waited this long to read this. Awesome characters. Great world building. No freaking instalove and annoying love-triangle. And I want Kell's coat. 😝 And best of all, Book 2 is out so I can continue on with this adventure!

charlene I want Kell's coat too! Currently reading the next book 😊 4y
todd @charlene - how is the next book treating you? I left the first curious but not dying to jump back in. Thanks! 4y
charlene @Todd To be honest, I'm not as hooked. There's an event that happens and it took about half of the book to do groundwork. To be fair, I'm still at that half where the event is about to happen. I'll update you when it gets better. 😊 4y
charlene @Todd Update: I just finished reading it. THE SECOND HALF WAS AMAZING! :)) I need the next book! 4y
todd @charlene Yay! Adding it to my list. 4y

bookish.hummingbird Mistborn is a little lighter than Stormlight imo. But of all of Sanderson's characters, I think Wax and Wayne are my fav! They're just hilarious. 😆 4y
