Tedious listen

I enjoyed the first two books but not this one. The same angsty internal argument over and over and over again and the feast that they endlessly prepare for in excruciating detail that never seems to arrive. The only way I could finish this book was speeding it up to 2X. The conclusion was good so if you get bored just skip to the very end.

Baking and the Beast

This book, more than anything, made me want all of the fresh baked bread they kept talking about. A solid listen, and my criticisms may be just my personal preferences.

I enjoyed this series for the most part as a fresh take on a familiar, beloved story. The third book doesn't feel quite as strong as the first two, although it's still good. It felt unnecessary that it's the longest of the three, with a fair amount of re-hashing of ground covered in the first two books. While the sense of the world is strong, we spend a lot of time focusing on preparations for the party without it always seeming to contribute to the plot or character development. While Benella's reluctance based on her trauma felt extremely valid, it felt to me as though that gets overshadowed by the far less believable, less mature, and less compelling notion of whether he likes her....or "likes her likes her". Still, the writing is strong, even when it veers a little angst-y, and kept me engaged wondering how things were going to develop.

Another strong performance from Sierra Kline, particularly with the introduction of essentially an entirely new cast of characters for this final installment. I loved the voicing of Egrit. She provided a much needed fun, light-hearted break from some of the heavier sections.
