This is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles. I highly enjoyed this book with a Little Red Riding Hood focus. I am hooked.
I have to read the rest of the series to know what's going to happen to Cinder and Queen Levana.

I saw a short video about the Dyatlov Pass Incident on YouTube and I was intrigued, so I highly looked forward to reading this book.

Nine hikers set out to trek the Ural Mountains and never return. When their campsite and bodies were found in a mysterious manner, people began to speculate many theories.

This author tried to answer the mystery by doing the same hike. I give it 3.5 stars.

tyoung2058 Fantastic but sad tale of the 9 hikers. Read a couple of different theories on this. 3w

Finished this #LMPBC book from @BookishBelle

I liked the whole idea of this book. You don't often get to read high fantasy books set in the Middle East. There were some great parts and it ended with a cliffhanger, but the majority of the book dragged for me. 2⭐️

Going out to the next person soon.

I absolutely loved this book!!! This book followed Jin as she tried to find her freedom while describing the history of Korean picture brides, the Golden Age in Honolulu, racism, plantations, prostitution, and the creation of Hawaiian shirts. I cried so much towards the end. 5⭐️

Note: Ebony would not get out of the picture. She hates taking pictures so I was surprised that she kept posing. I think she wants a snack. 😅
