STORY 🌟🌟🌟🌟
To be honest, I was expecting this story would just stay as science fiction. The transition into fantasy seemes a teeny bit forced to me. But hey, I still like it! And the diversity in this story ❤❤❤ seemed natural.

WRITING 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5
YOU ARE AMAZING MARY BERNSEN! I love her writing style. She used 3rd person perspective but I can still relate well with the characters.

AGAIN, THE SECOND BOOK STOLE MY BREATH AWAY!!!
.
The second book gripped me from the beginning. How can it not? There were so thrilling to read. All those meticulous schemes that Kaz had made was turned against him. Then Kaz retorted back with a more gruel and daring scheme.
.
The story ended wonderfully. Although I regret this story had to end. I wish to see more of this fantasy world.

THIS STORY IS AMAZING!!!!!
.
The heroes and heroines are not ordinary, here they are a group of villains and tricksters. A professional crew set on an impossible heist. But it turned out that they were involved in a bigger scheme than they intended.
The story was written in fast-paced and with good humor now and then. The slow burn romance was just the right amount. Full review on my blog http://runeofstories.wordpress.com

The writing is beautiful and it flows from words to words. But to me, the flow was too slow. The author gave too much description on every aspects, which actually makes the story alive in my imagination. But as it was too slow and everything was explained too detail, there were times I felt bored - I just wanted to know the progress of the story and not how every sun rays shine the character's cheeks.

I love it! It's easy to understand, the words just flow and I didn't have a hard time reading it! And I love (maybe I'm a bit biased cuz I'm female) that the female main character really takes the whole stage of the story. She is the hero in this one. And wonderful character development.

I am a big sucker for fantasy stories set in myths and lores. Titanlord's story is about the oldest legend in the Kingdom which turns out not to be a mere fantasy. The legend lives and sought to terorize humans. But the Gods may have other plans for humans.
I love the plot twist and that the character that I thought would be the focus of the story, turns out not to. That was the biggest shock to me. But it proves that the story was not clichè.

I love the world building and all the unique characters. Aku SUKA banget dengan world buildingnya Ther Melian. Detail-detail dunianya, bangsa-bangsa yang ada dan mapnya membuatku kagum! World buildingnya tidak kalah dengan novel-novel luar -dan kalian tahu aku sering baca novel fantasi luar. Ditambah dengan gaya bahasa yang ringan dan enak dibaca.

Writing ????/5
The words were substantial and I was drawn to the meanings behind each chapters. But I couldn't help to feel that some parts were elaborated too detail that I came to boredom.
?.
Story ????/5
Of course, i adore the story! It is heartwarming, and makes me reflect my own humanity. I finished this book with a new mindset. Also, it is not an expected story. "It is a fable," as Miss Williams had said.

In this book, I was able to connect deeply with the main character. And as the story goes, I see the wonderful character development and it made me proud. The world building sounds brilliant and detailed & just purely magic. This book taught me not to judge people based on status alone. And finally, this book really mess with my feelings that now I need the second book.

thevictoriousone That book was so good. The audiobook is also fantastic. I just love Lazlo Strange. 💜 2y

It was a whole new magical world with wondrous details, that the world seems almost real. The story is fast-paced and I can imagine the scenes playing in my head easily. The plot twists were amazing, and the characters have depths. Each characters has intricate emotions and experiences, including the villains. Which leaves me thinking more that this world is a blur of right and wrong.

1. Such wonderful writing!!! I always love when writers use metaphorical and poetical -but not too much of hyperbole.
2. It is fast paced.
3. CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. I feel so proud for Julie. From quite, rigid, and timid in the beginning to fierce, brave, and kick-ass warrior.
4. Plot twists. This book packs some good plot twists.
5. Hot guy! Damn the author's description makes it sound like a really really hot. A solid ⭐⭐⭐⭐ for me.

???.7/5
It was written neatly, storyline was not confusing -really easy to follow to be exact. But along the middle, I kinda get bored a little. For me, the story needs a little bit more of bam bam bam. You know, stuffs that make readers "oh god, what is she going to do next?" Stuffs that make readers unconscious of the time they spend on reading it.

For several times, I see myself in Dorian Gray. Vanity, greed, jealousy, selfishness, self-pity, and pride. I also know how it feels like to want to be invisible, unseen. So that the world doesn't know me and I can be free on thinking and doing what I want without having to care what others would think.
I see my self in Dorian. This book really teaches me about my own being and how I perceive things. #bookstagram #literature #bookish

As I read this book, I started to think that this world is made by millions of Catch-22. How many times people get rejected by companies because they are inexperience? But they can't get experience if companies keep rejecting them. How many times a patient who crucially need donors have to be listed? It seems unfair because it is. But it's not unfair, because that is how the system works. This society is a mega Catch-22.

I am starting to doubt that Edward Catchpool is the criminal... but he still has an unknown past so i'd be wary 'bout him. But Poirot trusts him so, and who am i to Poirot's judgement? 😙😙😙

Approach them from any vantage point and you'll see that they stretch endlessly back into the past and spread inexorably forward into the future. One is never quite able to say 'That's that, then,' and draw a line."

I find this book compelling. It depicts the life of Alma Whitaker in the search of meaning of life. As an erudite, naturally, she approaches the world from biological-science stand point. This book also discusses some philosophical ideas, and offers many attractive datas about botany (Alma is a botanist) and historical events. Alsoo this book made me cry 🙈🙈🙈 hahah.. I like how the author didn't neglect the emotional play of a story 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

itsfleurbooks This sounds so interesting! Is it non fiction / inspired by a real story? 3y
runeofstories @itsfleurbooks it's fiction but the author put some real historical events in the book -- like the big eruption in Dutch East Indies (now: Indonesia) in early 19th century, the publication of Darwin's On the Origin of Species, and so on. So it really gives the sense that the story had really happened 😍 3y

Honestly, I'm not really a fan of harem hahaha 🤣 I got bored with the romance. And when I got to the part that the girl, Amerika, is in love with 2 boys and couldn't decide which one, so she kept the two companies -- I bailed the book (sorry 🙈🙈).

The Buried Giant: A novel | Kazuo Ishiguro

At first I got really confused with the storylines. Then I realized that the confusion is part of the storyline! And that's so cool!

And I really love the fact that Ishiguro writes for a deeper meaning. The characters are rich and the elements all fit to the background - old England. And the giant, my favorite part, is not just a literary giant. You'll find out if you read till the end!

"Loyal Hanneke," Alma said fondly, "let us be honest with ourselves. Who will ever put a ring on these fishwife's hands of mine? Who will ever kiss this encyclopedia of a head?"

"I will kiss it," said Hanneke...

For a scholar, I guess Alma forget that marriage is not everything. Happiness does not only come from couple relationships. But perhaps the 19th century doctrine made her like that.

I really love that the main character (Alma) is a smart, independent woman - a genius in botany in a time and place where men still have the upper hand. Yet she prevailed amazingly.
I've only gotten to chapter 9. I'm still waiting for Alma to meet the 2nd main character that is said to have different perspective than logical scholars like Alma.

I enjoy reading this piece. The plot twist is on point! Though I dislike the romance part, I think it's a little bit too dramatic. But Agatha Christie is all about the mystery and in this one the mystery is thrilling.
