Finished! Loved it! This is definitely a series that will benefit from a reread -- I look forward to doing that in the run-up to Alecto

Reluctant Immortals | Gwendolyn Kiste

Mehso-so

It started out promising and I enjoyed the climax but honestly a bit boring, both plot and character wise. I dunno, might be a me problem-- it *felt* generic even dressed up with unique elements. Really cool idea that I didn't love as much as I wanted. Still a decent and pretty fast read though!

The Fairy Godmother | Mercedes Lackey

Continuing my indulgence rereads. I read this book EVERY YEAR. Easily my favorite magic system and I know the beats of this book forward and backwards. Still not tired of it. Reading this book is akin to a long, hot bath and slipping on a well worn tee after. Relaxing and comfortable

The Hawthorne Legacy | Jennifer Lynn Barnes
post image
Pickpick

Look. These aren't great. The love triangle is AWFUL. But if you've ever read a petty drama Facebook post and all 300 comments for the juice without ever getting involved-- that's this in a book. At an intellectual level, these are meh. The speed I read them at... well. I NEED the juice. I'll likely get the third immediately just to answer questions and be thoroughly annoyed at the romance triangle end.

I like to indulge in some bookish nostalgia around my birthday. One of those books I borrowed over and over as a kid and it's still fun to read at nearly 36 😁

1. Nope. It looks like YA Fantasy.
2. No, I'm not a fan of this style. Bit overused the last few years.

Honestly this was kinda trash but I devoured it so middle ground 😂. The triangle between the MC and two indistinguishable brothers was terrrrrible but the general drama and mystery aspect was fun. Read this when you need the book equivalent of a fast food lunch

I've been in a rut, it's Christmas, and I've been rewatching Doctor Who since July (starting with An Unearthly Child.) I've read a couple of these new Who Target novelizations and they're usually fun with just enough extra detail to make it worth itvwhqh you've seen the episode a few times. Hopefully this is no exception

Chrissyreadit How do you feel about the current Dr? 13mo
