Read this about a year ago. Enjoyed it.
I read books from a mix of genres. My favorites are dark fantasy, paranormal anything, Sci fi, horror, and fantasy. I have a thing for reading encyclopedias, I know it's sort of weird. When I find something interesting (meaning really gross, funny, unbelievable) I lost about it. I have an amazing family.
NATHANIEL RUSSELL was born and raised in Indiana. After college, Russell spent several years in the San Francisco Bay Area making posters, record covers, and woodcuts. He returned to his home city of Indianapolis and now spends his time creating drawings, fake fliers, bad sculptures, wood shapes, and music.

This is the perfect end to this trilogy. I absolutely loved the adventure. This author is lengthy in her descriptions, but manages make you want absorb each and every word. Loved the characters, especially watching Feyre grow into an amazing woman. In the beginning of this series she was a great young lady, but life had really broke her. I hated when Tamlin was a bad guy, but he redeemed himself a bit by the end of this.
Now to figure out what to read next.

I like coloring books for big people, but I usually go for the geometric designs, or ones that are a coloring adventure based on my favorite books. My girls like this. The minute it came in the house they were bickering over who got to claim it. It is a very nicely made book: bright white paper, elastic band to keep it closed, thicker cover, and uniquely sized. My main complaint is I feel there isn't enough content on each page. My girls solved this by adding their own backrounds and patterns. Definitely made them become more creative. My Thoughts are that I feel teen girls will enjoy this more than adults.

I loved Tamlin in the first book, but I also loved Rhys. This series really makes me rethink my need for sleep. I have to be at work by 6 a.m. tomorrow, I don't need to sleep for a 14 hour shift, nope, not at all. On to book 3. Then I will switch to the audio book and run the sound through my blutooth headset so no one knows I am listening to anything, just waiting on a phone call. It'll work!
I can't believe I thought this series was for young adults.
Wow, just wow... I loved, love this book. I can't believe it took me so long to read, but I am glad it did. I truly needed a distraction that only this could have provided.
This is not very young adult as I had originally thought. I was shocked that there was sex. Some of it pretty descriptive, not smutty or very erotic, but no closed doors here. Would I let my teen read it? Probably, even if I thought no, it wouldn't matter. She already has... Lol
This is easily within my top five favorite books I have ever read. I see countless rereadings in the future and so look forward to buying a complete physical boxed set when this series is finished.
This is a nostalgic, visual account of the best time and place to be a graffiti writer. In the 1980s, brothers Kenny, a.k.a. KEY, and Paul, a.k.a. CAVS, immersed themselves in the graffiti scene in the Boogie Down Bronx, dutifully photographing hundreds of pieces on now-discontinued MTA subway cars and capturing their proud comrades before, during, and after the act. “Bombing” “White Elephants” with their pilot markers and documenting them with their cameras, which they always carried, they were on the ride of their lives—until 1989, when the last painted train was removed from service. Tags by names like QUIK, IZTHEWIZ, and many others appear here in color exposures, and dozens of artists share stories and drop knowledge with no filter. A foreword by graffiti historian Henry Chalfant, coproducer of Style Wars—the seminal documentary on New York graffiti and hip-hop culture—kicks things off.
I have always loved graffiti. I live near two cities that both sport a lot of graffiti. I never tire from seeing it.
I really enjoyed this coffee table book. It is amazing what someone can create with some spray paint. I can only imagine the amount of time and dedication it took for the brothers to photograph all these subway car masterpieces. The text boxes tell the story of their jouney.

Much better than anticipated so far. Young adult, but not the sappy, eye roll kind, the good kind. I am kicking myself though because I picked this up not expecting to get sucked in, I don't typically like starting a series until all books are published. Daughter has all three books and I have a feeling I am going to be impatiently waiting for more.
Paint-by-number meets the traditional coloring book in this brand new format that showcases pixelated images of cool and quirky nostalgia objects. Doodlers, artists, and puzzlers alike will enjoy this new take on coloring. With a focus on old favorites, pictures of things like cassette tapes, a rotary phone, and roller skates have been pixelated and rendered as numbered grids. To fill them in, users have options to vary the colors, just vary the shading, or even use different shapes or lines. Color Squared can relieve stress or challenge the mind, depending on the approach the reader chooses--but either way, it will keep the head and hands busy, and make for a fun trip down memory lane.
Wow, this is really time consuming, but it does completely take your mind off of everything else. Think paint by numbers, but not wit h paint and offers the user a chance to be more creative. It is like numbered grid paper and you choose what to fill each with whatever you want. This kind of made me a bit crazy because I have a terrible time with choices and will not decide until I have thoroughly thought about every possible option. I sat there with an unused page in front of me for like four hours... Lmao.

I can't believe this is the end to this. I want more. I need to know what happens to the rest of the characters. I would like to see a young adult series features the juveniles in the series. Gonna miss Edge. Gonna miss these crazy ass characters.
So I kinda felt this ended at a point in the series where I will always wonder how things turned out. Yes, we got the happily ever after, but I felt it was the condensed version. Need a novelette or something so I can figure out how Lark is. I really liked her character.
I really like this series. This one was a bit different than the previous two because there wasn't as much family fun as in the other two where we had a main character frequently in the story.
I did enjoy that the couple was very compatible and had similar interests. I liked having the kids in this one. Book 4 now.
I love this. The Mar family reminds me so much of my husband's family from West Virginia, ha! I really like how tough Cerise is and William is great too.
I have had this series on my tbr for some time. I kept putting it off. For some reason I had it in my head that I didn't care for the Andrews' writing. I was mistaken. Funny, suspenseful, and set in an interesting, magic filled world. Not a lot of sexy times, which a year or so ago I would have considered a drawback, but now I prefer.
I really enjoyed this paranormal romance. It had just the right amount of romance, adventure, action and a great array of characters. I loved reading about the different worlds and how they were sort of magic and non magic copies of each other with a kooky ass strip called The Edge between them. Really liked the lady lead, bat shit crazy and smart.
