In Which I Continue To Suck At Goodreads: A Disclaimer
It is the first Wednesday in the decade but somethings don’t change… and so disclaimer, again. Look, I dare YOU to have an ARC of One of Us is Next drop in YOUR lap and not switch up everything to read and review it. Yeah. Ok. TWO. Infinity Son is LIKE JUST THIS CLOSE TO DONE so it is going in the “just finished reading” column. Third. This time of year just sucks for me. But it is pretty much 24 hours from done. No offense to those who are saddened by this but I’m glad. Until that time in February. And then I’m pretty much in safe territory and YAY. Or go tell the boy to fix me. It is one thing to lose a boy. It is another to lose a boy who is also your best friend. Anyhow… my disclaimer for this week’s WWW.

Loved Scavenge the Stars sooo much! Glad you did too, I’m intrigued to hear your thoughts on Beyond the Shadowed Earth & hopefully you will enjoy Spellhacker. Phew that’s a lot of books ????
YAY! I’m so glad you did. After I published my reviews and went and read up on goodreads, I wasn’t shocked at all the mixed reviews. The summary is misleading. There is barely any romance. It alludes to the possibility of romance and if all the characters hooked up with all the possibilities there are for sex not even romance? It would be a Maas novel FFS lol but nothing really comes of it. And it isn’t your typical action. So I get what people are saying but if you put that aside and go with it for what it is? Its a barn burner!
As for the amount of books, when you are avoiding all things of the season, and everything is in rerun mode, it isn’t hard to get through a lot of books lol. Other than unpacking, which I haven’t done nearly enough of and my few shifts at B and N? It is pretty much all I’ve been doing lol.
Haha yea. I’ve never read the original book so unsure if the story is similar? But I thoroughly enjoyed it… and so glad a certain book box is including in in January ????.
I get that… I’m hoping to get a bit of reading done this week cause I’m not in work till Monday ????
Oh I dont mean count of monte cristo… I’ve never read that. Lol… I’m captain america on that, yet again. I mean the summary for sts itself is very misleading… it’s like nocturna take 2… maybe not SO extreme but not far off. I talked about it quite a bit in my review. I had a gut feeling because I was thrown but happy thrown… so when I went back to goodreads I wasnt surprised
Yea I was a bit wary from the mixed reviews but I just loved the story so much it made up for it ????
Agreed. Divisive art (any kind) I think is something artists should be proud of. Do you want to create something that is just middle ground to please the masses or grabs those who love it by the throat and repulses those who hate it… that, I would think, is the point of art. Even if I hate something… I think I have more respect for something that causes extreme reaction than somethin that just aims for formulaic mass appeal.
Definitely! I always think passion in any way love or hate is something to be proud of… it’s the fact you’ve elicited that reaction out of someone
Exactly my point!! ????
I’m starting off with the first book in the Mistborn series.
Sanderson, right? It is on my TBR. I’ve been told to read it by many and warned by one that it is too much hand holding. I can’t wait to see what you think.
I’ve heard a lot of positive things about it, but not the hand holding part. I’m definitely curious. I’ll let you know what I think when I’m done!
I just finished Wardens of Eternity! I liked it. I don’t know that I loved it but I did like it. It definitely had some strong elements. Look forward to seeing your review ❤️
Ohhh very interesting ???? and yes we will definitely have to compare notes!!
Oh, I’m soo excited for One of Us is Next! Completelyjealous of you right now! I Preordered it and can’t wait for it to get here.
You won’t be disappointed! I can’t wait to see what you think of it!
I feel like you have a lot going on? Or did I totally misinterpret that one?
No you read correctly. I have lost the boy i thought I’d spend my life with who was also my best friend, moved to Colorado and this after my two year fight for SSDI, which I finally won. So I am no longer on the brink of eviction. Just heart broken and getting back on my feet. I have a PT job that is legally allowed at a bookstore that my managers are all absolutely lovely and understanding about. Emotionally it is just an upheaval in goodways because I am safe and heartbreaking because of what I lost.
I appreciate you asking. Thank you.
You have me so intrigued with Scavenge the Stars ????
First (audio)book for 2020 was The Witches Are Coming by Lindy West which was fantastic! Picking up The Infinity Son asap as well, you super keen to see what your thoughts were.
How was The Witches are Coming? I’m all about witches ever since seeing the Coven season of American Horror Story LOL
