adventurous
i won't rate it cause i unfortunately and mistakenly used the audiobook as a pillow read which means i fell asleep many times as i read it and it kept going. the narrator was lovely to fall asleep to though.

we can all agree this is a self insert story for delia owens right? this is the consensus? 
the book itself was so cringe, it really took itself too seriously. i love the idea that society made kya who she was by rejecting her cause it's true but other than that....really not a strong book tbh, wondering how it came to be recommended by reese. curious how they represented it on the big screen though.

finally gave in to societal pressure and read acotar after it was recommended to me by two close friends. it is both better and worse than i expected somehow. i had super low expectations and came in with an open mind as i'm not much of a fantasy girly. i will say it was an easy read, as easy as can be with world building and such, but i'm left wondering how it can be that hyped for an average book at best. there was nothing extraordinary about it, tbh i'd rather read the hunger games again.

a very good book when you feel like crying and experiencing someone else's grief for once. the relationship didn't feel forced which i loved and you feel attached to the characters and their troubles.

the more i read, the worst it got. nathalie's character felt painfully relatable for me as a 24yo adult and that should say something but she just went on and on about her insecurities, to the point where it got unbearable. is it what it really feels like to be a teenager? i still finished it cause i was listening to the audiobook but probably would've dnf'd it if i was reading it.

une story de deuil, trahison et de vengeance qu'est trop bien écrite pour ma little pea brain. honnêtement, j'ai moins aimé ça que je pensais. j'ai été confuse du début à la fin pis autre que leur souffrance, j'ai eu ben de la misère à m'accrocher aux personnages. talk about morally grey characters!!!

i understand i'm not the target audience but i loved this book. i feel like reading "juvenile litterature" is the best way to introduce oneself to a new subject. i wanna learn about historical events that my school didn't teach me, this was a great start. reading nisha's story through her journal entries was such a good concept. i'll give it 3,75 cause i feel like there could've been more to it, it felt like it was missing something but overall good fictionalized story. kudos to the author!
