Alexa Bonetto (alexarabbit) | 6 comments Yeaaaaah!!!!


Alex (The Scribe Owl) | 234 comments @Althea Thank you! I was wondering how we were going to read the book before it was released (If we weren't big enough to be able to get a ARC) xD

yeah I realized that too XD my bad!


Fernanda Ceballos (moodytbr) | 5 comments My copy just arrived!! I'm over the moon excited!


Laura ☾ | 1002 comments Yay! me too - I'll be starting this today!


Laura ☾ | 1002 comments Ok I'm up Chapter 5 - surprise surprise I love Schwab's writing style (as always)


Laura ☾ | 1002 comments Finished Part 2 - I reckon I'll be reading this fairly quickly it's addictive! So far I'm really enjoying it - the premise is intriguing!

May (theladymidnight) | 431 comments My copy just arrived! I'll probably start reading after I'm done with my current read.


Laura ☾ | 1002 comments Ok so I absolutely couldn't put this down! I finished it and loved it! Will be here to discuss whenever you guys catch up


Katie (love---katie) | 290 comments So funny story: I got approved for an arc on netgalley like 6 months ago, but I wanted to wait to read it until it was closer to publication, but THEN I moved and lost my kindle charger and just bought a new one. So it's been a roller coaster of me remembering that I had this book and desperately wanting to read it because I've heard nothing but amazing things. I've been kind of middle of the road with V.E. Schwab's other books, but I'm pretty sure this is going to be a winner.


Alex (The Scribe Owl) | 234 comments Just starting this; so excited!


Alex (The Scribe Owl) | 234 comments Finished! I had a blast. Can't wait to talk to you about it!

I just started it, I'm on the first 2014 chapter and I'm already loving it 😂

I'm done with part one, still loving it and I finally figured out why it feels familiar; it reminds me The Starless Sea.


Laura ☾ | 1002 comments Does it? I think as you get further in it has quite a different feel - it's not quite as surreal I feel


message 23: by mina, Group/Buddy Reads Procrastinator (new) - rated it 5 stars

mina | 2415 comments Mod
I have the same feeling while reading it, that's why it reminds me of the Starless sea.


Laura ☾ | 1002 comments Fair enough! I enjoyed both but didn’t connect them personally 😊


Fernanda Ceballos (moodytbr) | 5 comments I said the said thing. It didnt feel like Schwabs voice it read completly like an Erin's book, I compared it to the Night Circus but is basically the same feeling.

That's interesting! I feel like it felt like a much more grown-up version of her narrative in the Near Witch personally!


Fernanda Ceballos (moodytbr) | 5 comments I havent read the Near Witch but the voice from Vicious and the London's trilogy (im sorry forgot the name haha) although different settings and themes seems familiar, and its a really adult prose and its all well developed.

Im not complaining, or at least I dont think so, but thats why I say it doesnt read like a Schawb its just way different. More lyrical perhaps?

Oh, how much I loved this. It was perfect.

I was so shocked by that reveal.


Katie (love---katie) | 290 comments I'm only a little over halfway but I was also very shocked! I kind of put the pieces together a page or two before it was actually said but in retrospect it makes so much sense.


Michelle (shelbrenn) | 266 comments Loved this book! Sad it is over!
