An intriguing plot, the characters had a lot of interesting development. One minus is that the love story should‘ve been more developed, other than that I enjoyed it throughly.

Not groundbreaking, but a good twist and story about finding yourself in the era of fashion in 1700s (ish) Pari. Our main characters Frances And Sebastian had great plot line and character arc. Defiantly pick it up.

⭐️ 5.0
This… was an heartbreaking, thrilling and heartwarming debut. I couldn‘t let go of the words and the wisdom that were shown in every page. As well as, the characters actions and build-up to the ending was truly a sight to read. How Dauni‘s story and journey showed even of a time of grief you can come out stronger and fight for the rights you deserve.

⭐️3.0
A reasonable entry to the series, it was satisfactory. The plot was set on a cruise ship 🚢 which gave it an more claustrophobic feeling for the liars. How can they then escape A:s wrath? The four liars had an decent character development, like accepting their fate and staying together as a group. Which I think was the aspect that let me at the end give it 3 stars instead of 2 stars.

Continuing my Harry Potter reading challenge that I started for myself. First time reading the series, only have watched some of the movies. So far this book is similar to the movie 🎥 and I like it. Love the narrator of the audiobook.

Book of Night | Holly Black
Pickpick

⭐4.0
An internally different world from Black's previous book series (The Folk of Air). If you had expected something similar it isn't at all, which is what makes it unique. The first half of the book was slow, and a part of me got tired of the book fast, but in the later acts of the book, especially the characters were the saving grace for me.

⭐️3.7
An intriguing continuation of the story Anne with an E. I enjoyed the character development she had in 3 years and understood her real feelings on certain people, accepted the fact that she had all these spiral thought and understood at last whom she was meant to be. The plot was in many times quite confusing, to many characters to follow and understand. Although, the friendships were as good as in the tv-show.

An amazing romance, plot, morally Forrest characters. As well as how beautiful not only the cover but the world building gave me an insight on how it would look like if I was a character in this story. Mina‘s journey was ups-and downs and the ending gave her an interesting conclusion to her character arc,which I enjoyed.

Definitely one of TJR best books in my opinion, I enjoyed the distinct characters & their journey to self realisation. A book that is ser in the 80s is what I needed, such an interesting way to see a book that is not just set today. I loved June and Mics chapters, as well as the siblings journey in life.

Was expecting a lot more of this story since I‘ve heard good things about it. Although the characters in dept emotions were described in a real way and the historical background of this made me feel intrigued of the story. I wish the bromance or particularly “romance” would have been more built up. The narrator of the book were truly amazing and made the book more enjoyable during my commutes.

Sadly this mystery book wasn‘t what I expected, the characters were bland & I could predict most of the plot twists. The positives were the third act of the book other than that it was not groundbreaking in my opinion.

“I wanted to reach into my chest and hand her my heart, so she could finally understand what made me tic.”
Such a sweet comedic romance story on a real practice in some Asian countries hiring boyfriend. The main character had an interesting way of describing her inner most feelings. I wish I could‘ve seen more downs in their relationship.

So far, I‘m enjoying this current plot. It has some cringy and confusing plots between the characters but otherwise it‘s keeping up with the mystery of who A is

It kept me engaged, although there were some plot holes that weren‘t truly resolved? I liked the character ark and “future” telling? What would black widow choose?
All together I would say it‘s and okay read for me as my first comic-book series.

Sadly this book wasn‘t exactly what I expected, one great thing about it. It gave an interesting character development for some of the liars, but the book didn‘t feel more like a filler in the bigger ark of the series. In my opinion, still going to read the 10th book.
