The Belles

I find the world interesting, but it's mostly the characters which fails to impress me. Even though the beginning was promising, but the ending revealed itself to be rather classic good vs evil. Sophia was a cackling princess, who was too evil and should not be allowed to rule no matter the cost. Without actually… Continue reading The Belles

The Memory Eaters

A quest about a man seeking his past. I did expect it to have been more epic an adventure, more interesting a situation. And much more fascinating a moment. It was none of that. I have to admit, it was a journey meant to be undertaken. But I didn't feel that it was a journey.… Continue reading The Memory Eaters

The Flame Never Dies

This was one book which I really didn't expect a lot of things. And well, it was written in such a way that I fully enjoyed the series. For what it was, and how it was written. To me, this isn't like most books. The premise is original, and the sequel definitely surprised me in… Continue reading The Flame Never Dies

Renegades

On some level, I appreciate how these superheroes here don't really on some really over the top superpower. Both of them have powers which are pretty neat, but neither of them are particularly ridiculous in terms of power. But I wasn't all too sucked in by the book at all, in how the main characters… Continue reading Renegades

The Stars Never Rise

This was a quick read. Very very quick read. I read it in one day, and derived a lot of entertainment from this. The most surprising part is what the story is all about. That the well of souls dried up, and eventually making that for each soul born, another soul must be lost. But… Continue reading The Stars Never Rise

The Stone Sky

Now this was a very satisfying conclusion. I was in love with the first book and the same for the second happened. Here, is where it truly ends. But it isn't just about the moon returning, but also about Essun's tale of motherhood and need for her children. She starts by searching for her daughter,… Continue reading The Stone Sky

The New Dark

Something about this just didn't work with me. I really tried and really made an effort to really read this book, but really I couldn't find anything that interested me. What sounded interesting was only the premise, and that this book was didn't grab me at all. Since I have gotten a free copy of… Continue reading The New Dark

A Poison Dark And Drowning

I gave this a full day to see how it will go, and I have zero interest in reading it further than the first half or so. And even then, it was one of the most boring things I have ever read. Perhaps my taste has just changed too much. Henrietta is a magician, and… Continue reading A Poison Dark And Drowning

The After War

Something about this just worked for me. The world indeed did feel rather like a post apocalyptic world, with plenty of moments which did attract me. I did have some fondness for the main character, who is rather relatable and the writing was easy for me to get into and read. As well as figure… Continue reading The After War

This Savage Song 

Victoria Schwab is definitely becoming a favourite author of mine. Her books are always the right kind of work for me, dark yet light, with characters that I do actually care about from Kell, Lila and now Kate and August.  The situation both of them are in are simply interesting to me, Kate aspires to… Continue reading This Savage Song

The Obelisk Gate 

This was simply perfection. The second book had been much easier for me to ease into and really enjoy the story well enough.  Essun, here she mostly remains the same. All the while she looks for her daughter, and ends up discovering a whole new lot of things. Her turn at the end, was really… Continue reading The Obelisk Gate
