This is the third book in the series. Although I hadn’t read the previous two, it was easy to get into. It’s definitely a romance and has all the feels. It’s well-paced and well-written. By the end of the story, I was totally invested in the characters.
Loved this book. The writing was gorgeous, the stories were short and sweet, and I couldn’t get through this book fast enough. I loved the storytelling and the writing. A great collection of fantasy fairytales.
This is a sci-fi/fantasy in which there are multiple storylines following different characters in different universes, realities and timelines. Each is very different and draws on various ancient mythologies which I really enjoyed. Although confusing to follow, I appreciated having to engage more with the story. I also liked the world-building, which was extremely complex, although it was at times more descriptive and wordy than immersive. The ending was definitely action-packed, and the weaving of the story becomes clear in the way the end is tied up but leaves you wanting more.
I don’t really read a lot of self-help books but this is one I’d definitely recommend. I’ve always been a skinny girl but have in the past few years become much more concerned with how I look. This book really helped me think about the way I think about my body and how that connects with other parts of my life. I loved the addition of the journalling prompts spread out throughout the book and the 365 daily prompts at the end, and the writing style is exactly like chatting with the author over coffee – girl next door and all. Highly recommended.
This was a bizarre book, with a pretty crazy plotline in which Tanuja Ramachandran becomes an instrument of retribution against the criminal underworld after her husband and children were murdered. Having lost everything, she’s out for revenge. It is fast-paced and action-packed but didn’t have much substance in terms of theme or message, so I found myself skimming a lot. It’s chaotic and violent and like a comic book, or more specifically, manga. The plot was confusing, but the writing itself wasn’t terrible.
I really enjoyed this book. I found the beginning difficult to get into and a bit messy to understand, although this might also be because I didn’t realise this was the second in a trilogy and I hadn’t read the first book. Nevertheless, by the halfway point J was hooked and eager to find out what was coming next. It was an interesting look at a slice of life as a graduate student in a science research lab and all that that life entails, along with its take on immigrant America and the ups and downs of personal relationships. I haven’t read a book like this in a while and I really enjoyed it.
Alice Will is a well-written, well-paced book. It was an easy read since it’s probably aimed below my age. Nevertheless, I appreciated the world-building and I loved the main character Trotter, who is funny and adventurous and unique. Full of action, magic and fantasy, I haven’t read fantasy for a while and loved dipping back into the genre. I loved the characters and the setting, and there was enough suspense to keep me going. An enjoyable read.
I really enjoyed this book. An adventure through time, some historical romance, and a bit of book nerd, this reminded me of ‘Outlander’. This is definitely a page-turner, and I loved the plot and characters. Although the beginning was a little narrative-heavy, the story picks up and I really enjoyed the dialogue and the writing style hooked me in. This is a well-written book with lots of heart and warmth. I can’t wait for the next book.
This is a lovely read for the holiday season, with two heartwarming tales to get you in the mood (plus there’s snow!). Although a quick story with little plot, the way the backstories of the main characters were revealed and the way this played out into the character development was delightful. This was a warm book and super quick and easy to read. I would have loved them to be a bit longer. Nevertheless, the characters were relatable and well-written, and the stories were interesting. A sweet holiday novella.
