I took a chance on Moira Fowley-Doyle's Spellbook of the Lost and Found after falling in love with its gorgeous cover on Twitter. I haven't read The Accident Season, her debut novel, so I didn't really know what to expect in terms of style.
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.
I read The Wrath and the Dawn for the first time in anticipation of Flame in the Mist's release, but I really wish I hadn't -- I couldn't help but compare the two. I did enjoy this book -- it has a well-constructed world filled with interesting men and women and a hint of magic. But where The Wrath and the Dawn drew me in instantly, Flame in the Mist was a little more slow to start.
I have stated countless times on this blog that I just don’t like contemporary YA. As a nearly 29 year old, it just doesn’t click with me. However, The State of Grace resonated so strongly with me. This book is something special, and I was absolutely charmed.
Hi guys! I only just realised that I've just passed the 100 follower mark.
This review contains loads of spoilers, so don't read on if you intend to read the book. Also, for fans of the book, please don't hate me! I'd love to open up a discussion about it because I know so many people love it. Tell me your thoughts!
I've been thinking that some of the most innovative fantasy over the past few years has been coming from the YA genre and the Six of Crows duology is certainly evidence of that. These two books are absolutely amazing. Seriously, they're some of the best fantasy I've read in ages.
