  1. Oh wow I had no idea there is a book to this movie. I just recently watched the movie and enjoyed it. This seems like it would be such a cute read. I’m going to check this out. It’s nice knowing that it’s different from the book. Great review!

  2. Aw man I am sorry to hear you didn’t like this one. I have seen this book pop up a lot lately. I am not 100% if it’s for me but I did just read a review the other day and they were raving about the book. Now after seeing your review I’m on the skeptical side. I don’t do well with annoying characters. I feel they always ruin the story for me. I’m definitely going to look more into it to see if it’s something I actually want to read.

  3. That looks amazing!! I would love a Pride and Prejudice one to add to my collection haha. Have you looked on Etsy to see what other people are selling and to see if they have any luck?

  4. I mean, A Court of Thorns and Roses does, if you consider it YA, because Rhysand’s treatment of Feyre in book one is hprrifying

  5. Omg I’m so glad someone else loved it as much as I did!! It was phenomenal!!! Just so amazing I could not believe how great it was. I really loved the crew and the found family. But Fable trying to survive and make something of her life was just so relatable. She just found her way deep into my heart and the writing was so freaking good. I want the sequel. I want more books with water settings. I want more. I had read The Girl the Sea Gave Back and enjoyed it prior to this but most people raved more about Sky in the Deep than The Girl the Sea Gave Back so I will be reading that one soon. But I think Fable will probably be a huge hit and everyone’s favorite.

  6. I’m also not the biggest fan of self-publishing. I know that there are brilliant self-published books, but it’s really hard to find them! Also, I used to work in traditional publishing, so I’ve seen books go through the editing process. The self-published books I’ve read feel like unfinished products to me.

  7. Nice book review, i almost felt that i was a part of the story, i would love to read this book and recommend everyone reading this review to read it. I liked it very much. I hope u come up with more book reviews as amazing as this.

  8. Already on the TBR list πŸ™‚ I think the plot is a bit coincidence heavy, but I also like the idea of a zombie attack in a world where people actually know what zombies are instead of referring to them as “walkers” or some other claptrap. πŸ™‚

  9. At first, I was a bit offended by the “fictitious faith” comment, but then when I thought about it, I realized that this woman’s faith is, in fact, fictitious. I’m an LG(BT) Christian, and I’ve lived this shit my entire life. It was only after leaving the Catholic Church and joining the United Church (of Canada) that I saw that no, this isn’t what the Bible says. I can’t imagine how miserable this terrible person is, if this is how she sees the world. None of what she says is Christian. I echo Lili’s thoughts in that this book…it ain’t it, chief. People like this don’t make more Christians, or strengthen anyone’s beliefs. All they do is make any rational people reading it angry and push people away from it. Thank you for an excellent dissection of a trash book. πŸ™‚

  10. I had the EXACT same experience with this book. The movie is one of my all time favourites, so when I read the book I was so extremely disappointed as it was not what I expected at all.

  11. I am so apprehensive of this book.
    We definitely do not need another book about a cis white male who “could have been different if x hadn’t happened” I’m sick of that happening in real life where people will look at how “good” the male was instead of the horrible, disgusting things he did.

  12. Good to know! I also thought the movie was utterly adorable, and now I know that I never have to read the book.

    (Sidenote: I would give similar advice to anyone who loved Crazy Rich Asians, but more because the movie is a rom-com and the book is…not. It’s not bad, just a completely different genre. And it’s not good enough to overcome the disconnect.)
