I finished The Chase and gave it 3 stars. This is the start of a spin-off series to Off-Campus, which is one of my all-time favourite series. I've been really looking forward to Fitz's story because he's a gamer, but I didn't like it as much as I had hoped. Still, a quick read and Elle Kennedy is always enjoyable. The next book is already pre-ordered.

I finished Station Zero and gave it 3,5 stars. It's the finale of a middle-grade scifi series about sentient trains traveling through the galaxy, a thief and a robot, and a heist that sets lots of trouble into motion. It's a very exciting and fun adventure, but you should really read the books right after another to best feel the rush of the series.

Definitely a series I would recommend to others, and here is my review

I finished The Kiss Quotient last night. The first half is a 4/5 for me, the second half a 2/5, so I combined the two and went for 3/5 in total. Come discuss the book with us on our buddy read thread. :)

And I just finished writing my own review about The Kiss Quotient, which I gave 3,5 stars, which you can read here.
And like Inge said, come join us in the buddy-read thread for fun talk and discussions. Do you think this book deserved to win the Goodreads Romance award?

I finished The Winter's Tale, the Shakespeare play I saved especially for this month. It turned out to be much more hilarious ánd tragic than I thought: especially the part where Leontes shames his wife put the #MeToo-trials in my head.
Sadly, I didn't think the text so good to rate the play higher than 3,5 stars, but I will definitely recommend it to others!

For more details, here is my review

I've just finished Sleeping Giants. In a bit of a reading slump, but the interview format made it really easy to read, plus it was so interesting! 90% of the time I had no idea what was going on, and I liked that. Gave it 4 stars.

Yes, I'm so happy you liked it Inge! The second book is maybe my favorite of the series because the situation gets really wild in that one, but Sleeping Giants is a great start :D

I just bought Waking Gods, I've decided to just continue reading while everything is still fresh ^_^

Eleanor (ontheothersideofreality) | 183 comments Here are the reviews for just a few of the books I read this month: Phantoms as Euphemisms for Disaster by N.L. Shompole (a beautiful poetry book about heartbreak, gender inequality, and the author's African heritage), Pride by Ibi Zoboi (a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice), and The Rose and the Balloon by Kirsten Fichter (a short steampunk Beauty & the Beast retelling). Overall, I loved Phantoms, liked Pride, and would probably pass on Rose + Balloon if I were to go back in time.

I just got Pride for Christmas, so I'm happy to hear you liked it Eleanor! P&P isn't actually my favorite Austen - that's Persuasion - but to see it replay in the Bronx, that I want to check out.
