🐺 Have you read the Gilded Wolves? . I would love to hear what you thought about it if you have! This was such a hard book for me to figure out how to rate and analyse and even tho it’s been a while since I read it, I still feel very “hmmMmM” about it🤔 . First of all - I don’t really agree with the whole “this is JUST like Six of Crows” that went around bookstagram when this was released. The ONLY thing these two have in common is that it’s a heist plot. The Gilded Wolves definitely has a bit more to it than just a heist. I feel like there was way more political and deep characterisation going on as opposed to Six of Crows (NOT A BAD OR A GOOD THING FOR EITHER. They’re just very different!) . The thing I really really loved about The Gilded Wolves was the characters. They were SO well done and I absolutely loved the group dynamic. Also really appreciated how good the rep was with the autistic character 😍 . I thought the world was pretty exciting and interesting but this is honestly also where the plot threw me off. It’s been a REALLY long time since I’ve been so confused by a plot as I have while reading The Gilded Wolves. At one point nearing the end I put the book down and went “but wait.. why are they even doing this??”🧐. It also didn’t really helped that the magic system ALSO confused the hell out of me. I’m still not sure what was really going on, and what the difference was between one thing or the other. It did sound very cool but I honestly wouldn’t be able to explain what it was/how it worked. I would have liked a chart or something 😅 . So really I LOVED the characters but was majorly confused by the plot, world and magic. HOW DO YOU RATE A BOOK LIKE THAT?!?? 😰 . . ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (3/5) ?? Maybe?
📖Pretty Revenge - Emily Liebert ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 (thank you @gallerybooks for this free book #partner) . . Kerrie/Olivia and Jordan/Jordana come from the same place but end up leading completely different lives. One fateful night changes the course for the both of them but Olivia has revenge on her mind. This is a fun and entertaining read that reminds me of those addictive lifetime movies and I do love me some of those. For all the build up, I did feel the ending fell a bit flat for me. Too much of a bow tie but still didn’t take away from the entertainment value... take this book with a grain of salt.. that’s on the lip of your margarita glass 😉 . . 👩🏻💻#wtrgreviews #wtrg2019reads#atbr2019 . . “Kerrie O’Malley, jobless and in an unfulfilling relationship, can isolate the singular moment in her life when things veered off course—the night she was irrevocably wronged by someone she looked up to. Eighteen years later, when Kerrie sees the very woman who destroyed her life on television, a fire ignites inside her. The stakes are high. The risks are perilous. But she’ll stop at nothing to achieve the retribution she deserves. Jordana Pierson is a gilded New Yorker who appears to have it all: wealth, glamour, a successful and handsome husband, and a thriving wedding concierge business. Her record is spotless. Her business is flourishing. No one knows the truth about her and the dark shadows of her past.” . . #prettyrevenge#emilyliebert#gallerybooks#bookslayer#bookreview#bookaddict#bookblogger#paperback#arc#allthebookreviews#readwithchandra#bookphoto#thriller#revengereads#readerforlife
L' UOMO DELLE CASTAGNE, Søren Sveistrup. . . . ' ᴘᴇʀᴄʜᴇ' ʟ' ᴜᴏᴍᴏ ᴅᴇʟʟᴇ ᴄᴀsᴛᴀɢɴᴇ...ʀɪᴄᴏʀᴅᴀ ᴏɢɴɪ ᴄᴏsᴀ. ɢʟɪ ᴀʟᴛʀɪ, ғɪɴᴛɪ ɪɴɴᴏᴄᴇɴᴛɪ, ʜᴀɴɴᴏ ᴅɪᴍᴇɴᴛɪᴄᴀᴛᴏ '. . . . 31 ottobre 1989, Danimarca. Marius Larsen è un poliziotto ormai alla soglia della pensione. Mentre attraversa il bosco in auto, immerso nelle sue riflessioni, raggiunge la fattoria del vecchio Ørum, deve redarguirlo perché i suoi animali sconfinano sempre oltre gli steccati della proprietà. Il luogo, però, è immerso nel silenzio e quando il poliziotto varca la soglia di casa quello che trova lo sconvolge. Sangue, cadaveri e centinaia di omini deformi fatti di castagne e fiammiferi... inizia così il primo romanzo di Søren Sveistrup, autore della serie tv The Killing. Un thriller corposo di oltre cinquecento pagine che vuoi leggere anche quando non è possibile, forte di capitoli brevi che ti fanno pensare ancora uno e poi basta. Ambientato nella bellissima Danimarca, con atmosfere cupe e la neve che fa da padrona, una storia concentrata sull' azione e sugli eventi descritti così come avvengono, crudi, brutali. Tutto ruota intorno al serial killer, per una volta i protagonisti tratteggiati appena, e per una volta non a discapito della storia. Una coppia quella di Thulin e Hess, che si ritrova, loro malgrado, a lavorare fianco a fianco per finalita' differenti, entrambi sulle tracce di un serial killer brutale, una coppia che deve fare chiarezza sulla morte di giovani donne e sulla scomparsa di Kristine Hartung, figlia del Ministro degli affari sociali...Un thriller intriso di suspense fino alla fine, fino a quando l'uomo delle castagne non prende ' corpo ' e la realtà dei fatti prende una piega impensabile. Leggo thriller da sempre, ma garantisco che una volta terminato il libro non guarderete più le castagne nello stesso modo... . . . ● CONSIGLIATEMI UN THRILLER MOZZAFIATO! ● . . .
Thanks to the tagged publishers for a couple of these delicious summer reads poking out of my bag! Current read and possibility pile for the rest of July. I can’t believe we’re headed towards the end of July! Where has summer gone?? Where was all the time I had before me to devour a huge stack of books?? June was kind of a bust for me in terms of reading so there’s just no way I can fit everything in. Between The Most Fun We Ever Had, Things You Save in a Fire, and Evvie Drake Starts Over what should I prioritize the rest of month? I also need to read the next Betsy book and I’m def in the mood to reread The Penderwicks. Soooo, I’m not without (too many) options. I hope you’re all having a great Saturday wherever you are in the world! We’re expecting storms today. I love summer storms. ⛈
‘That don’t impress me much’-Shania Twain—a book you didn’t like. Day 2 of #booksandmusic2019 I chose ‘Allegiant’ the third book in the Divergent series. I absolutely adored Divergent and Insurgent, but Allegiant felt like a badly quilted blanket, falling apart at the seams. The whole two person narrative (when the first two books only had a single perspective) really made the events of the book predictable. And the various plot lines that were so expertly set up in the first two books were rushed into endings that left MUCH to be desired. On a whole, the book just felt rushed, and needed some serious outlining. It was such a disservice to an incredible story.
next book recommendation #repost from @books.advice.nice Where the Crawdads Sing By Delia Owens Penguin Publishing Group Pub Date: 8/14/2018 Review 📚📚📚📚📚/5 “Marsh is not a swamp. Marsh is a space of light, where grass grows in water, and water flows into sky.” -Delia Owens Delia Owens’ novel, Where the Crawdads Sing, is her own space of light among so many well written novels. Kya’s story shines bright as told by Ms. Owens set against the background of North Carolina in a part of it we rarely see as beautiful. If I could carry one novel, one story with me forever, it has to be this one. I found this book almost a year after it was first published. I had no idea that this story would pull me in so completely. Kya, The Marsh Girl, as she is known by the children and adults alike in the small North Carolina town just outside the marsh that she calls home, is trash. Swamp trash, marsh trash, never thought about and forgotten trash, but not a little girl. Forgotten and overlooked by everyone including her family, Kya fends for herself. Her world is the marsh with all the creatures and tides to keep her company. In 1969 Kya finds herself mired in a murder investigation. The town’s favorite son is dead and there is no trace of evidence. Did the Marsh Girl commit murder? On trial and seen by many of the townspeople for the first time up close, the legend is brought face to face with those who have already tried her in their opinion. The marsh with all its wonders and mystery draws you in to this story asking you to let go and allow Owens to cradle you in the tide and winds of the marsh as you follow Kya on her journey through life. ✨Delia Owens May take a seat next to Pat Conroy as master of Southern Literature. If you have not read this book you simply must.✨ #authordeliaowens#putnambooks#wherethecrawdadssing #reesewitherspoon#bookstagram#booknerd
