I love this duology so much! 😭 So magical, so beautiful.
Rebecca Ross is now one of my auto-read/buy authors.
Still underwhelmed but I‘m giving this a pick.
I thought it was rushed especially that ending, with the fewer but longer chapters. It was still OK, though.
I‘m glad I read this series.
“I know metal."
"What does that have to do with anything?"
"I ... I don't understand half of what goes on around me. I don't get jokes or sunsets or poetry, but I know metal. Beauty was your armor. Fragile stuff, all show. But what's inside you? That's steel. It's brave and unbreakable. And it doesn't need fixing."
Same as the first one: a short, fast-paced read but still underwhelming — most likely my fault as I expected too much from this series.
On to the third book!
// I was on vacation this past week so I didn‘t finish it as quickly as I‘d hoped but I still read everyday. 100 days on my Kindle streak! Woohoo!
Finally started this series.
A short read, I like how fast-paced it is. A bit underwhelming, though.
Will read the rest.
Won‘t be reading book 2. I liked this but don‘t care enough to finish the story.
Edit: Just wanna add that I really don‘t like love triangles. I knew that there‘s a LT in this book before reading but I still read it because I thought maybe it would be executed in a way that I‘d be fine with it. It was OK but I still don‘t like it.
I also read a summary of book 2 and I‘m really fine with the decision of not reading it entirely.
Ah, crap. I had this book on hold for a while, and then I got lucky and skipped the line. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into it. I'm not a fan of SNL (I don't even watch it), so I think that's one of the reasons. But I still wanted to try it since I do read romance and have seen good reviews. This would have been my first Sittenfeld book, too, but now I'm not sure if I even want to try something else of hers. I feel bad. 😞
I knew nothing about ‘Heaven‘ when I decided to read it — I didn‘t read the blurb, I just really loved ‘Breasts and Eggs‘. This was a difficult and sad read. I give it 3⭐️ but it‘s still a pick for me. It hurt but I‘m glad I read it.
I have never read Pratchett and have only read a couple of Gaiman's books, but I've always wanted to read 'Good Omens.' Now, I have to because I've already watched the first season of the series on Prime, and I don't want to watch the second season without reading it first.
Don‘t know how to explain it, but it reads like a movie. Not much world-building but it was fine.
Not entirely satisfied with how it ended or how the conflicts were ‘resolved‘, though. It feels incomplete.
Regardless, I really enjoyed it. I love the LGBTQIA+ representation and how it tackles mental health [in fantasy/ a magical way].
- The Big Bang Theory prepared me for this! 😂
- I like Hazelwood.
- This is the first book of hers that made me LOL.
- An Aro-Ace character?! Hnnng, yes!!
- My favourite AH so far.
Wow. I didn‘t cry-cry but definitely shed tears.
The whole series, not just this last book, could‘ve been shorter, though. But at the same time, I want more.
Nevertheless, I thought the ending was perfect.
Oh, my goodness! Definitely better than Jade City, especially the last few chapters. 🤌
Wanna start Legacy right away but it‘s already midnight where I am and last I checked, I‘m still a corporate slave. 🙄
A soft pick, really.
It took me 8 days to finish it but not because I was not enjoying it. Well, I didn‘t at first.
I found the world-building to be well done, although it's a whole new world for me. It took me a few chapters before I finally understood the jargon.
I'm not overly excited to continue reading the rest, but I am still intrigued.
This is a soft pick for me. I really wasn't feeling it. Took me three days to finish it, when, normally, I would have finished a short book like this in one sitting. However, towards the end, I did feel it, and I'm nothing if not an emotional reader.
I read 16 books in July!
I‘ve read more in a month before but it‘s been years. I‘m happy. 😊
Tagged book is my favourite of the month.
I was scared to start this but four chapters in and I‘m already liking it. However, I will have to stop before I go in deeper because the last book isn‘t out yet… I don‘t know if I‘ll be able to take the wait.
Edit: I think even my cat agrees. He‘s saying, “Don‘t read this yet.”
Do not judge a book by its cover.
How to unread? But seriously this was me throughout the book: 🙂🙃😢🤬🥺😭🤬🤬😭🤬🤮🤬😨🤯😭🤬🙃🤨😠😈🤯😵🤬😧🙃😧😠😶🙁🙃🙃🤮 🤮
Check for content/ trigger warnings if you‘re gonna pick this up!
Edit: this was an awesome read! Haha. Don‘t be fooled by my emojis… Or do?
