Once the reading challenge starts, you can come over here and share the first book you're reading! Maybe you'll find someone else reading the exact same one?

Have you finished a book? Tell us as well! Maybe even add some of your thoughts about the book. Did you enjoy it? Or didn't you?

What's going to be your next read?

Every small progress you make, you can share here! Even if you just want to talk about a huge event that just occurred and you need to shout about it for a bit.

Myrage | 7 comments I finished the audiobook of Cry Wolf yesterday. It was good but not particularly great. I'm also slowly making my way through A Court of Wings and Ruin. I'm not flying through it like I did with the second book, but I still find it enjoyable for now!

The same thing happened to me with ACOWAR. It was disappointing compared to what the first 2 were for me.

Susy (susysstories) | 91 comments Lol, ACOWAR was actually my favorite, couldn’t put it away!

Edit: Done with A Curse So Dark and Lonely AND Sorcery of Thorns

message 12: by Myrage (new)

Myrage | 7 comments After finishing ACOWAR, I was debating reading Crown of Midnight or The Cruel Prince but it might be a good idea to take a break from Sarah J Maas and Fae books for a few days. So I started Seven Deadly Shadows and I have really high expectations for it, so I hope I won't be disappointed..

message 22: by callie (new)

callie (artsy_bibliophile) | 5 comments So far, I have read 3 books and all of them have been 5 star reads! Definitely worth reading less books if the ones you do read are gold!

SEAL Team Six Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper by Howard E. Wasdin ~ This was an amazing book! I loved getting a "behind the scenes" look at what life was like in SEAL Team Six and what the training was like, as I would never be anywhere near capable (mentally or physically) to lead that life myself. I would HIGHLY recommend this book!

Thunderhead (Arc of a Scythe, #2) by Neal Shusterman + The Toll (Arc of a Scythe, #3) by Neal Shusterman ~ The Arc of the Scythe has become one of my all time favorite series! It is such an amazing concept, the writing it beautiful, the characters are very well portrayed in my opinion, and it is just an overall captivating story that really pulls you in. If you haven't already read this series, I definitely recommend you go pick it up!


message 23: by Fefe (new)

Fefe | 18 comments The Overstory - I had so many mixed feelings about this book. The writing style is beautiful but it can be jarring with the scientific connotation, so many characters end up not having a good contribution to the plot and a non-consistent pace. 2/5

- Drive Your Plow over the Bones of the Dead - interesting concept with passages that make you reflect about our world. Sometimes it felt like some chapters were slower than others. The reveal was a little obvious and a little disappointing. 3/5

- Our Chemical Hearts - very fast-paced but oh lord, this book irritated me so much!!! all the characters had the same quirky "I'm-a-cool-millennial" personality (even the parents!) that was not realistic. the author tried so hard to subvert the "manic pixie dream girl" trope but it never subverts it. it was very hard to believe that the romance (and the entire book) took place over 2-3 months, Also, everything good solved super quick and rushed, with some of the final resolutions/revelations coming out of nowhere. Maybe this is a sign that YA contemporary/romance is outdated and not the right genre for me. The only character I cared about was Lola. 1.5/5
