There’s a good chance you’ve heard of Children of Blood and Bone -- it has taken the publishing world by storm. With hype surrounding this book literally from the moment it sold, I think it makes sense to be cautious -- most of us have been burned by hype before. However, I’m here to tell you that this book is worth every ounce of hype it has earned and more. It has taken me almost two months to write this review because 1) I just couldn’t quite translate my feelings on this book into real words and 2) I wanted this to be a well-rounded review instead of a gushing one.
I was so desperate to get my hands on a copy of A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. When I finally spotted it in a UK bookstore, I snatched it off the shelf right away, and I’m so glad I did. While there was a ton of hype surrounding the publication of this book, I felt like it was well-deserved.
There was so much hype surrounding When Dimple Met Rishi. It is the kind of book that YA readers have been crying out for for ages, and Menon absolutely hit the nail on the head.
