Hi friends! Today’s topic is one that I’m really excited for, because I have the attention span of Dory and I need good book recommendations, so I can’t wait to see everyone’s picks! Don’t forget this is hosted by the amazing Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm!
MINI-CLIFFHANGERS AT THE END OF EACH CHAPTERS. I have no willpower for such things, and yet Spectacle had so many. Parts of this book were slow but I just inhaled all the words like I was that starved wolf in Red Riding Hood*.
*speaking of that story, why would the wolf want to eat Red and her grandma when he could eat all those freshly baked pastries????? THAT, my friends, is the true crime of that story
Okay look. The first book in this series has a lot of issues. Like a lot. But honestly, I physically couldn’t put this down. I dragged it everywhere with me which is saying a lot because of the original cover*. By the time I reached that one chapter in the hotel I just gave up on food, sleep, and normal human stuff in favor of vampires, werewolves, and glitter.
*you know which one I’m talking about. The cover you don’t want to be seen in public with for REASONS
I’ve spoken before on how I’m not the biggest fan of this series but when I first discovered Booktube and saw this everywhere, I had to try it. And so I read the first book ridiculously fast, and then the next three are really just a blur of pages and shipping and laughter. Regardless of my current thoughts on these books, I still remember the pure addictiveness of them.
I JUST REREAD THIS FOR THE FIRST TIME GUYS. It was just as good as the first time and powerful and emotional and AGH. LOVE. This is all about grief, and loss, so be aware this isn’t a light read. But it is short and it draws you in so fully. Patrick Ness is a wizard with words. The new Harry Potter*.
*just kidding I’M JUST KIDDING GUYS
I KNOW I KNOW LET ME EXPLAIN.
I know Twilight is technically trash, at least in many people’s opinions. But listen, 13 year old me recognized it as trash but also read and read and read it. I woke up early to read it*. And raced through the second
and was too disturbed by spoilers from the rest of the series to finish but anyways Twilight was unputdownable.
*which i never do because i don’t do mornings
So that’s it! Hopefully at least one of these choices surprised you haha. Drop some unputdownable book recs in the comments below!
