This book was action-packed. I typically don't read audiobooks if they're longer than 9 hours, so the 14 hours & 45 minutes of this book felt incredibly daunting. I hesitantly pressed play but I have to say, this book flew by. I was utterly engrossed.
It's been a few days since I finished this book, and I still don't know quite how I feel about it. I picked this up as part of Libro.FM's influencer program, and I was immediately drawn to the cover. Seriously, look at how pretty the cover is. I also enjoy post-apocalyptic reads. I figured I would give this book a chance. I think it's important to state that this book was not character-driven. You never even know the character's name. You only know them as The Girl, The Man, and The Bear. I am such a character-driven reader that this honestly threw me off.
Back in April, it seemed that this book was everywhere. A lot of the bloggers I followed posted review after review of this book, so it wore me down, and I had to buy it. Unfortunately, with how busy my review schedule was, this book sat on my kindle for months. On a whim, I checked the audible escape package and was so excited to find Fluffy on it! I downloaded it right away and eagerly started the audiobook.
As many of you know, I LOVED Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller, so I was incredibly honored that Sourcebooks Fire sent me a physical copy of Belle Révolte! This book looked like everything I could want. I love fantasy & the blurb sounded terrific! Unfortunately, this book didn't live up to the hype I built in my head. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed it, but it wasn't nearly as amazing as I hoped it would be.
I've had this book borrowed from Kindle Unlimited for a few months, but I never found the time to read it. As you all by now should know, I love Faeries. I've fallen in love with many mythical creatures, but faeries have always had a special place in my heart. Since I started #FaeFriday, I figured it was time to brush up on my faery facts, which is surprisingly nonexistent.
I've owned the play transcription of Into The Woods for about five years now, but I never seemed to find the time to read it. This was one of the three picks I pulled out of my TBR jar for the Clearing The Hoard Bookwyrm Challenge I created. I couldn't pick what book, but this book was mentioned in David Levithan's newest book, 19 Love Songs, so my choice was easy to make.
Love Her or Lose Her is the second book in the Hot and Hammered series by Tessa Bailey. I read the first one earlier in the year, and I genuinely enjoyed it. Georgie and Travis were so much fun, so I couldn't wait to read about Dominic and Rosie.
