I finished A Great And Terrible Beauty last night. A good read replete with feminist overtones. Gemma's work through grief over her mothers death is well documented. I do have to say that I am getting tired of the supernatural theme and doubt I will read the sequels

Rachel (rachel7moon) | 3 comments I read this book in December and liked it...I will say though, out of the trilogy, the second book is my favorite...

Celine | 7 comments I quite enjoyed this one, but I think the supernatural bit and the Realms could have been better thought out.

Kimberly I've read this about 2 or 3 times and I found it to be a bit of a break from the usual YA fiction but maybe thats just me. I like the victorian aspect a lot. I own the whole series but haven't been able to get past page 120 in The Sweet Far Thing.

Yeah, it is different. I wouldn't have bought them but for the victorian aspect. I just love corsets.

Shelli I just got this book today at the library sale...is it worth the read?


message 8: by Celine (new)

Celine | 7 comments If you like YA books, you should read it. The world Libba Bray created is interesting and different, but the main characters are a bit immature.

Shelli Thanks Celine.
