WHAT IS THIS?
This is where I write mini-reviews for books I’ve read each month, that AREN’T review books. I find mini-reviews are a more relaxing way to do things and who doesn’t love the number 3?
A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC
So this whole time, I have been in LOVE with V.E SCHWAB as an author and general human being, but I had never read one of her books. Unfortunately, I kind of hyped her up to be a goddess in my mind, which she is, but it meant I had thought this would be an easy 5 stars.
Personally, I LOVED the character development and world-building but this just lacked that essence that drags a book from being really really good, to amazing, y’know? BUT in saying that, obviously it was really really good and I can’t wait to continue the series!
FENCE vol 1
I had read the first two issues of this earlier in the year, but after a quick refresher on them, I moved onto the other two issues included in the first volume bind up (1-4) And honestly? I love it. It has the aggression and speed of ALL FOR THE GAME, the subtle hints at the rivalry that might turn to love, and a dynamic plot that stresses you out in the best way because you want the best for the main character Nicholas. Definitely one of the best Comics I’ve read.
THE HAZEL WOOD
This was very disappointing. It just felt like a story that I had heard a thousand times before. The writing wasn’t great, the plot had huge holes and overall this was just plain boring. I don’t even really have anything else to say bc I know I won’t remember this book in the future.
