I really enjoyed this novel for the most part, though there were a few bits and pieces I thought needed a touch more 'oomph.' For one, I'm not all that thrilled about the Lynburn revelation. It just didn't feel cool enough/ big enough/ original enough/ organic enough to me. The characters, on the other hand, were the epitome of cool/big/original/organic; I laughed out loud so many times.
From the query letter (the book summary) and first ten pages I would have requested a full, asked for revisions, and hoped the author was keen as her characters are some of my favorites ever!
How much do you think I adore this cover? No! You're not thinking big enough with your adoration-thoughts!
The color, the Gothic shadow-boxing, the lack of models, the font, the artiness, the elements, the BACK COVER ADDITION! *falls down from glee* This is my definition of the perfect cover.
The Witch of Duva
by Leigh Bardugo
My, oh my, reading this reminded me of when I read Shadow & Bone's prologue. Bardugo is at her best when she is writing in third person and her best is quite brilliant, indeed!
The Girl Who Ruled Fairyland- For a Little While
by Catherynne M. Valente
Too quirky for its own good.
I'll still be reading the actual book, though!
A great addition to the series, which has wonderful covers as a whole!
by Jennifer Bosworth
This short put me off reading the book. I don't really want to wade through the twisted religion plot lines in Struck.
by Marissa Meyer
Acting as Prophet's antithesis, Glitches made me pull Cinder off my shelf and crack the spine! More on that next time!
