So I am sure that Legendary is as controversial as Caravel was, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. @stephanie_garber I loved how it was returning characters but switched sisters and love stories, that it was the same mysterious feel as Caravel but managing to be totally different and it's own story, rather than a repeat. Plus the characters are fun and the world is fascinating.
If you don't like a lot of romance-type stuff, it may not be the book for you. There's a lot of kissing, but that's as far as it goes. If you're all for romance, then I'd say you should definitely give the series a try.
It was a 4 star read for me. I had a very enjoyable time reading it, found the plot lovely and intricate/intriguing, and the characters made it a lot of fun. If you're looking for a magical world to get swept away in, like more poetical type proses, etc., then you should definitely try it out.
This is the first bookstagram photo I took with my new camera! What do you guys think? It's a really dark/gloomy day here so I am rather impressed with the quality for it being such a rotten lighting situation! That's one of the main reasons I chose this specific camera so I'm pretty happy with it. And building this tree was also a blast.
Speaking of trees, I'm also doubling this photo as mine for @bookishbronte and her friends' photo challenge #takeyourbookoutside. When I get the chance (and my health cooperates), I absolutely love reading under trees. It's my favorite place to be. Trees and I have a lot of history, so we're close pals. When I was a kid, we used to go "tree hopping" (which essentially means we climbed up younger trees and swayed them until we could jump to the next tree over. It was tons of fun). I'd probably spend 99% of my time outside reading under a tree if my health allowed nowadays.
The second photo in the lineup also is one I recently took which I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
