Finally getting around to Chain of Gold, it?s a slow start but damn. Cassie?s writing has a way of pulling in the reader even if it?s just no plot for a hundred pages

I'm reading Chain of Iron right now and breezing through it. I'll say it a million times, her books are crack. I know they are bad but I just can't stop. lol nothing has even happened, 400 pages in and I still can't put the darn book down!
Yes this. I haven?t been able to get Chain of Iron yet but I?m so hype. This series in particular is basically a soap opera

Now I?m reading the Ghosts of the Shadow Market collection because it provides like half the context for The Last Hours. And while I?m kind of annoyed that all this content is wrapped up in a tangentially related collection, I?m really enjoying it. It?s a lot better so far than I remember most of the other novella collections being. Maybe it?s just more to my taste, but I?m really appreciating the way Clare writes ~queer issues~ and other topics compared to how she did in the past. In some of the other books it felt either preachy or disingenuous or both but idk I?m really feeling this one.

This happened to me when the forum was down. Also, finished Chain of Iron (mentioned earlier in this thread), and the latest Impostors book! Currently reading Paper Moon/Addie Pray (published under two names), which is really good, also go watch the 70's movie Paper Moon if you haven't seen it, because it's legit one of my favorite films ever. I also started Six of Crows, which I'm liking so far but eeeoh boy some YA fantasy tropes do indeed bug me.

Goodness I had no idea you had never read the series! Always exciting when you get to start a new book, I always love the beginnings.

What took you so long to start it though?

Haha, yeah. Apparently I hid my oblivion well all those years. I'm not sure what took me so long. When I first came to the forum I was a major Uglies fan, had read Peeps, and Midnighters as well. I guess I just never came across the book at the right time and then moved into different authors and stories and kinda forgot that I hadn't ever read them. I just recently got back into reading a little at a time after a few years with very little patience/ time and picked up a copy.

Hey GB. :D
It's weird but has been literally years which seems crazy haha, but aside from Covid things have been great with most things except my reading habits. Recently started reading seriously again and I suddenly remembered these forums.

I feel like I've become such a slow reader now that I actually have to get things done in real life. I've gone against all of my readerly rules and am reading at painfully slow paces 3 different books. Still working through Leviathan, reading Serpent and Dove, and The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding.
