I love this trilogy but I wish there was more to this ending. I don‘t love the epilogue. I guess it wraps everything up, but I‘m not a huge fan of the time jump, I‘d love to know more about the year leading up to the epilogue. Or the years in between the books for that matter. I do love novellas. That said, this is still a pick.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Completely amazing, super relevant, funny, snarky, kinda heartbreaking. Hank really knows his shit. I can‘t wait for the sequel.
I read a physical copy, but I‘m gonna get the audiobook for a reread/listen-along.
Spoiler: i learned that when the perspective switches for the last chapter, Hank himself does that part of the audiobook narration and I‘m super excited to hear it!

Already finished this and about to start on Rich People Problems, this trilogy is really easy to get lost in! This books kept with the multiple perspectives/stories, which I love. I love Rachel, but I am literally so invested in Astrid‘s life. (Also, I really want more Oliver in these books because he is a TREASURE)
This book was much more ~dramatic~ than the previous one.
9/10 would recommend

Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan

Wanted to read this book before I watch the movie , because that‘s a thing I do, even though I know the movie is different.
I love this book! I finished this and immediately started the sequel, China Rich Girlfriend. I love when books have multiple perspectives, I feel so much more immersed, so much more invested, not just in Rachel‘s story, but others‘ as well. Definitely recommend this one.

When Life Gives You Lululemons | Lauren Weisberger
Pickpick

Definitely my favorite out of the series and my only "pick", and probably because it has nothing to do with Andy who I hated. I love Emily and I love Lina and Miriam isn't my favorite but she's still better than Andy. The perspective changing throughout is something I adore because it usually makes the story feel more immersive to me and I appreciate that.

I really think my main problem here is that I just don't like Andy. I like the story. I don't like Andy.

The Devil Wears Prada | Lauren Weisberger

Andy is just not very likable. She's an unreliable narrator. And I have no sympathy for her because she's always acting like an awful brat. In the movie adaptation, maybe it was just because she's played by Anne Hathaway, but she's much more sympathetic.
I love the movie. I don't love the book.

I've had this ebook on hold with the library for ages and I finally got to read it and it was so amazing! Michelle McNamara's writing just draws you in, the whole book is great, but the epilogue, Michelle's Letter to an Old Man is perfection.

This was a great character driven read. I love that it changed perspective and went back and forth in time to give you a full picture of events.

The Accident Season | Mora Fowley-Doyle
Pickpick

This book is eerie and mystical and wonderful. I would love to see a movie adaptation but I don't know that it could truly do this book justice! I'll have to get my hands on the audiobook because I think this is really the kind of story that gets even better when it's read to you. I definitely recommend this, especially if you're interested in magical realism.

I cried a bit through the last, like, third of this book. Possibly in part because it was nearing 4 am and I was v tired and definitely finishing the book before I went to sleep, but also because i just felt terribly invested.
10/10 would read a sequel

This book is everything! this amazing book is so relatable and so lovely and gave me so many feels, I'm so glad I finally got to read it, and I'm even more excited than I already was to watch the movie!
10/10 will definitely read again

I finally got around to reading this and I thoroughly enjoyed it, it kept my interest from beginning to end, and I read it faster than I thought I would. I didn't watch the movie until after I read the book, and as per usual, I like the book way more, though, honestly I'd still even recommend the movie because even though I didn't like it as much, it was still an enjoyable adaptation.

Chelleo Agree, it‘s one of the better adaptations and it help me to “see” the science. 2y
tiffanosaur @Chelleo same! it helped clear up some of the book because the book was just so detailed 2y
Chelleo @tiffanosaur Yes, thank goodness for audiobooks! 2y

tiffanosaur @Chelleo Omg, I didn't even think about the audiobook for this, there are so many funny bits that I bet rock on the narration 2y
Chelleo @tiffanosaur the audiobook was great... the humor comes out and the science is manageable (I may have stopped if I had to read through the science and math) 🤦🏾‍♀️ 2y
tiffanosaur @Chelleo I need to get it on audio! The super science-y/math-y parts were the only thing that dragged for me because it's just. so. detailed. 2y

Just finished this reread to finish out all things Lizzie Bennet and I think this story, Lydia's story, is the one that I want to continue with the most. I love Lizzie and Jane, but Lydia goes through the most change and development and I just want to continue on more adventures with her!

I just finished a reread and rewatch of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, and I still can't get over how good of an adaptation this is. I love how several mediums(multiple YouTube channels, twitter accounts, etc) were used together to bring a modern day Pride and Prejudice to life, and this book gives more info that didn't get shown in the videos that makes these characters even more interesting.

ReadingSusan I loved this series!!! 2y

I read the kindle "enhanced edition" of You Deserve A Drink, which has bonus videos and they are sooo good. Mamrie, as always, is funny and energetic, and I could practically hear her telling me these stories because her writing is so similar to her actual way of speaking. The only way I could imagine loving this more is if I'd listened to the audiobook so maybe that's how I'll experience her new book, I've Got This Round.

I keep reading Book 1s when the accompanying Book 2s aren't out yet and I'm driving myself crazy! This was amazing and immersive and I hated having to tear myself away from reading to do other tasks. I love this and I'm obviously beyond ready for the sequel!

I just want to keep reading, I need book 2! I love retellings. The only thing I didn't like was the end because I want the rest of the story.

This book broke my heart more than once and I love it. I started reading it free yesterday on @RivetedLit 's #25readsofdecember but I only got 5 chapters in before life pulled me away, and I was already ~invested~ in Tanner's story so I bought it and couldn't put it down once I was able to get back to it today. As a bonus, really happy to have bisexuality so well represented. definitely added to my ever growing list of books to reread ❤️💛💚💙💜🖤

"Love fails for a million reasons—distance, infidelity, pride, religion, money, illness. Why is this story any more worthy?
It felt like it was. It felt important. Living in this town is suffocating in so many ways.
But if a tree falls in the woods, maybe it makes no sound.
And if a boy falls for the bishop‘s closeted son, maybe it makes no story."

It isn‘t his first kiss—I know that—but it‘s his first real one."

Pretty much what you'd expect from a YA romcom. I can see how it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoyed this book a lot. The characters had depth and were contradictory and messy and funny and weird and was i invested in all of their stories so this is a pick for me.

I think this is John Green's best so far.
Aza is so real and everything about her just feels so ~accurate~ to actual life. It doesn't feel like a fiction.

I loved the format of this book, epistolaries are the best, so even if it's only in part, I'm a fan. Also love when there are drawings and such incorporated, so A+. I liked the premise from the start and it was a nice, kinda cutesy journey.

More murder mystery than I expected with a splash of Mean Girls, but it wasn't unwelcome :) I'm definitely interested enough to go on to the next book in the series.

I've seen a lot of people compare this book to The Girl on the Train, and I really didn't care for that book at all so I was very wary of this one, but I actually liked this much more. The protagonist, Lo, kind of grated on my nerves at times, but overall I did much prefer this book.
