Ending the #MrBook1inaMillion readathon at just over 21 hours! Pretty proud of this number, since I don‘t usually participate in readathons and this weekend ended up being busier than I had anticipated! I finished six books and started a seventh (the tagged book). Happy Reading to all 🤗

This was great. The story was great (actually very tragic, but I was so invested). The characters were great. Bahni Turpin is my new favourite audiobook narrator.

Bkwrm7 Bahni Turpin is amazing. I have loved everything I've listened to that she has narrated. 3d

Happy #MrBook1inaMillion readathon friends! First real snow of the season! I thought I had successfully cleared the weekend to dedicated to only reading, but alas, classes and homework and studying are a thing 😂 which is why I‘m definitely NOT listening to my audiobook before and between classes....

Okay, wow, I don‘t even know where to begin with this book. This is perfect for fans of Miss Peregrine‘s Home for Peculiar Children and Ready Player One (I know, weird combo, but trust me), and the best way to read it is without knowing anything going in. I really enjoyed this, but Goodreads helped me see some issues I hadn‘t thought of before. Definitely on the older side of YA, and it needs some content warnings. Read with care.

jmtrivera Would you say it's scary? I can't do horror at ALL, but our book club will be reading it. I'm worried I won't be able to handle it. 1w
cleoh @jmtrivera I found it more unsettling than downright scary and I don‘t know what else I can say without spoilers. I think the world building relies on setting an uncomfortable/unsettling tone, but once the story picks up and is less focused on the world, I didn‘t find it scary at all. Does that make sense? I don‘t want to give anything away 😂 1w
jmtrivera @cleoh That does make sense. How long does it take for it to pick up and be less scary? 1w

cleoh @jmtrivera I listened to the audiobook so I couldn‘t tell you for certain, but 100 pages? Maybe less? It‘s about 450 pages total 1w
batsy I was interested in this and I'm glad to see a positive review :) The ratings aren't so hot on Litsy. 1w
cleoh @batsy I noticed that too! Same with Goodreads. I think it‘s either a book you love or a book you hate! 7d

Okay, I LOVED this. I adore Edgar Allan Poe and his twisted tales, so I was hesitant to start this. The hype is real though, friends, the hype is real 😍 my favourite stories were the ones based on Ligeia and The Cast of Amontillado.
