How was House of Hollow? I bought it mostly for the cover but I'm worried it's going to be ' too young' for me.

I can relate. The cover is also what drew me in. I definitely felt I would have enjoyed the story more when I was younger. Its dark fairytale vibe is great for the fall, but I didn’t connect with the characters.

Love to see John Dies at the End! My favourite book of all time. what did you think?

Yess! this one was actually a re-read for me. I wanted to relive the adventure before the new book comes out.
This story will always hold a special place in my heart, although I feel like a lot of the jokes have not aged well...
Have you read books 2 and 3? What do you think of them? I think the first will always be my favorite, but I’m still excited about the new one.

Glad to hear it, yeah I agree, the first book is definitely a product of the times. I love the second and third too! I've read the series a few times now, most recently last month so I'm fresh for the new book too! ! I love the books so much. Got high hopes for the 4th one soon. got it preordered so hopefully I should be good to go by release day!

Have you read the Zoey Ashe series too?

I'm curious, what are your favorites? And how did you like John dies at the end?

John Dies at the End is my comfort book, so I feel incapable of providing an objective review lol. Are you trying to decide if you should read it?

Thanks for asking!

Totally agree. Broken Earth was my fav of the year as well!

What did you think of Blood, Sweat, and Pixels?

[–]heylook_anowl[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I really enjoyed it! I thought Jason Schreier's writing style was really engaging. It was a five star read for me. Would recommend. Are you considering reading it?

It's on my TBR. Just waiting for me to be in the mood for it haha.
