This is pretty good, but it's a sloooooooow read.

This is a very raw and angry book. Clementine pulls no punches and doesn't hesitate to call out angry man trolls. A+ read.

Fight Like A Girl

Jess is 66% done with A New Hope - The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy (Star Wars: Episode IV)
Luke and Han's POVs are so boring. They are just such cliche characters. Wish the whole book was from Leia's POV.

I don't like Kartik, and I sincerely hope he's not a future love interest. Sneaking into Gemma's room at night is just plain creepy, and even more so in the context of their era, where Gemma could be ruined if found in such a position.

Oh boy. I don't remember anything from the first book. This is already super confusing...

The Shattered City (Creature Court, #2)

Jess
Jess is on page 150 of 336 of The Memory of Light
This feels so personal to me. I relate to Vicky on so many levels. What hurts the most--and what feels most real--is her father's insistence that Vicky is just going through a sad phase and all she needs is to get back into the routine that caused her to be suicidal. My parents are very much like that. They don't understand my illness, and that hurts.

The Memory of Light

Jess
Jess is on page 1034 of 1232 of Les Misérables
Is the romance in this meant to be taken seriously? It's so shallow that it's on par with Twilight. Marius might not watch Cossette sleep, but he still stalked her until he found out where she lived and watched her just doing stuff.

Oh no. This scene is literally a rip off of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. "I Am Lord Voldemort" and this... Hmmm....

Les Misérables

Jess is on page 60 of 279 of The Merciless
I was enjoying this well enough, up until Sofia gets a piercing. The author clearly has no idea how piercings work. Piercings don't bruise, nor do they cause uncontrollable bleeding unless--somehow--a vein is hit. Trust me, I've been pierced a LOT.

Oh my god this is so boring. I keep reading a few pages, only to put it down and do something better with my time. Considering DNFing this.

Wow this is so painfully boring to read. Snow is such a Mary Sue, she's the chosen one, she masters her powers immediately, and has every guy swooning over her. Bleh.

Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow, #1)

Jess
Jess is on page 40 of 375 of Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow, #1)
This uses the tired--and frankly dangerous--trope where therapists and medication are bad, and the main character isn't actually mentally ill, she's just really special, so it's okay for her to stop taking her pills and such. Grrr this makes me mad.

I'm coming into this book not remembering anything. In fact, I remember so little, that I'd forgotten that I rated the first book 2 stars and why. Never mind.

The first quarter was so charming, but now that they're adults, the book feels like it's fumbling along. Hopefully it ends on a charming note...

I got a fairly big thing spoiled and now I'm so sad. Someone on my instagram just posted a pic of the page with a certain line underlined in red, and I couldn't not unsee it until it was too late. :'(

WHY is the word night replaced with 'nox' every single time? Noxgown, Good nox, It was a warm nox, etc. Getting very annoying.

Crying like a baby. I have too many feels for this.

Despite the first book being called Fantine, we are only JUST introduced to her. Oh, Victor Hugo, you do fluff on about everything.

This feels like the origin story for Bioshock, but set in space.

At first, I was having trouble getting into this book, but now I'm really enjoying it. Kady is kickass.

Jess
Jess is 32% done with Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, #1)
I've realised what my problem with this book is (apart from Malcolm Fade/Magnus Bane. I mean, there is a huge lack of originality there): this was so poorly edited. Clare repeats herself constantly, oftentimes word for word, and there are awkward sentence structures and just a whole mess of things.
