Hey, remember my review of the first book in this series? When I said it had some interesting worldbuilding, but was ultimately a pretty dull story with no compelling characters or stakes to carry it? Remember when I basically called it a boring read and wasn’t super thrilled about reading the rest of the series? Well take all that nonsense and chuck it right out the nearest window! Because this series just shattered all my expectations.
A cross-country adventure with all the highs and lows of a continental getaway, European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman continues the story of the Athena Club and brings us deeper into the war between the monsters and the monstrous.
Well, guess who was the idiot who forgot to post on time? At least I managed to double my reading list for the month! Finished last month's planned reads and add two more to the bunch. Hopefully I can keep this up and see this continue through the next month as well. Here's hoping anyway!
With grand magic, an epic quest, and the fate of a kingdom in the balance, Daughters of the Storm sets up all the right pieces for an epic tale, but fails to make us care.
Unravel the Dusk is a magical conclusion to Elizabeth Lim’s Blood of the Stars duology, even with a bit of uneven stitching at the seams.
Unrepentantly brutal and yet undoubtedly compelling, King of Thorns pulls readers down the dark path of a prince desperate for power and vengeance.
An intense, brutal epic that unfolds at a breakneck pace. R.F. Kuang’s The Poppy War is one of the most powerful and memorable books I’ve ever read.
Another month gone by and more books read. I probably should have planned things a bit better and read some more horror for a change, but that's an idea for next years post. So far I've kept to my review schedule, and hopefully I'll be able to keep that up. Wish me luck with that anyway!
