My last two reads have been so great that I can’t help but share them with you. Fireborne The author wrote a little note that I feel really sums up the vibe and atmosphere of the book. I’d encourage you to read it! In short: […]
I just spent WEEKS re-reading the entire Seven Realms series, then re-reading the first three books of the Shattered Realms series—all so I could read Deathcaster with the other books super fresh in my mind. Imagine my disappointment when after all that, Deathcaster ended up being my least favourite book out of all eight.
I’m weird about time travel books. I thought I didn’t like them, but now I’m thinking I do. The time travel book I read before Stolen Time was Invictus, which I adored! Now I read Stolen Time and loved this too!
This fantasy book didn’t feel like a fantasy. I looked at that cover, read that synopsis, and had expectations. I envisioned an epic fantasy romance with Norse mythology. What I got… was pretty much a contemporary book.
Furyborn is a REALLY cool story with two different timelines that relate and intersect. The prologue shows you the outcome of Queen Rielle’s timeline, then chapter one takes you two years back to explain how events led up to that outcome. Then chapter two gives you Eliana’s point of view, which is a crazy 1,020 years later!
I didn’t love The Smoke Thieves. For me it was just okay. Most of the book wasn’t super thrilling. Sure, there were a few mysteries to keep you going, but the whole thing just wasn’t super exciting.
Ash Princess was AMAZING!! It met all my expectations and then some. This is going to turn into an epic revenge series and I can’t wait for more!
I loved Renegades! I’m thrilled because Heartless wasn’t my favourite. But Renegades??? Yes! Awesome!
Children of Blood and Bone deals with some really heavy, intense issues. There are huge topics like privilege, family vs “what’s right”, oppression, and more. It’s not a lighthearted book, and that’s what I loved about it.
I’m really disappointed that I didn’t love The City of Brass like I wanted to. It was such a cool setting and the main character was pretty great, but sadly I think information overload weighed me down and massively affected my enjoyment of the book.
