So you know I’m working my way up to being the master of this read-a-thon, and I’m almost HALFWAY THERE! That’s right, folks, I have 4 WHOLE BADGES to my name. I’m so glad that Aentee (Read at Midnight) made this challenge. It’s just so GREAT! Here’s where I’m at so far.
My little Gastly has grown up so fast! As for the books I’ve read…
For this one I read The Raven King and let me tell you I am still having so many FEELINGS about this series. I listened to the whole thing on audio (which is a mistake because this book WILL make you cry), and now I want to own them all and read them all over again.
I’m going to be foisting this series on so many people and I’m not even ashamed about it.
I reviewed it here, and I still need a Pynch support group because Jesus God I’m obsessed.
I finally got around to reading A Court of Mist and Fury for this one and OH DEAR GOD. I mean, I assumed that there would be an epic romance in this one, because the first one just didn’t scream “epic” with the romance but I WAS NOT PREPARED. Feyre and Rhysand are just FLAWLESS.
Even if the romance between them wasn’t epic (which I thought it was) some of their scenes together are just EPICALLY hot. Like I think Sarah J. Maas would be perfect at writing cheesy romance novels because her sex scenes are MUCH better than what I’ve seen in any of those books. Hot damn.
Check out my review on Goodreads here.
Really, any of the books I read for this challenge could fit this category, but I picked this one because I was reading it when I started and it didn’t really fit anywhere else.
This book, though, is w o n d e r f u l because it’s just a beautiful merging of the 20s (which I’m entirely obsessed with) and magic (which, also, I’m entirely obsessed with). Check out my review here to see exactly what I mean.
I needed to reread A Court of Thorns and Roses before diving into ACOMAF, and I think I’m glad that I did, if only to remind me of Sarah J. Maas’s magical ability to take a lackluster first book and turn it into something amazing.
This one was just “meh” for me. I just…I think I remembered liking it the first time through, but really it all happens too fast. Everything does. It’s far too rushed and while it’s still good, I’ve got lots of problems with it.
Some of those problems I’ve talked about here on Goodreads. Probably I’ll add a review for the blog where I talk a lot more about it.
That’s where I’m at now. Currently, I’m fighting with Winter. I’m glad it’s reading quickly for me (it doesn’t hurt that I’d already started it but had to return it to the library because someone else wanted it), because damn is this book big. It doesn’t look like it’s 800 pages, and I still think that there’s some magic trickery involved because I don’t know that many things are going to happen.
I’m entirely expecting this book to be different from what I had thought would happen. I mean, there’s no way that it couldn’t be with that much story involved.
