    1. It looks like you got less books than normally! Is the ban working? 🙂


    1. Looks like you’re doing well on your ARC ban! I’m super intrigued to see what you think of The Collected Schizophrenias and Lore!

      1. Thank you! I’m so excited to pick up both of those. It feels like The Collected Schizophrenias has been on my radar forever, and if I like Lore, I might have to buy it because it’s soooo gorgeous!

    1. Yes to ACOMAF ?✨ I haven’t listened to the audio but I think I should! Maybe even pair it up while reading. Great post ? Jen

      1. The audio narrator is really perfect for Feyre! I think listening to these has put them in a whole new light for me and has just totally taken me back to how much I loved them the first time I read them. ??? Thank you Jen!

    1. ACOMAF!!! Fun fact, ACOTAR series is one of my favorite series of all time and I have never listened to the audiobook ? Do you think that the audio is up there with like illuminae? Or is it just nice audiobook? Lmaooooo
