The Queen's Assassin | Melissa de la Cruz

Ugh...I hate giving bad reviews, but this one is probably closer to a Pan for me. I almost bailed but felt I should continue as it was a #BookishFirst win and felt I owed a review. Too long, hardly any action, choppy chapters told in alternating voices from the two mains. TBH, the writing seemed too juvenile for teens/YA (more middle school level except for one brief intimate scene). A twist at the end felt a bit bizarre, and there‘s a bit of a ⬇️

robinb cliffhanger as this is the first of a duo. This one was just a bit of a struggle for me unfortunately. 2/5⭐️. UPDATE: After further reflection I‘ve decided to alter my rating to a Pan...I‘ll leave the 2/5⭐️, but it‘s probably more of a 1/5⭐️. (edited) 5d
kellyann28 I read the preview from Bookish Firsts and decided not to enter the raffle. It did not appeal to me at all, and I do love fantasy! 5d
robinb @kellyann28 I wish I had had that same response. I decided to give it a try...oh well. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I was actually surprised that it didn‘t get any better the further I read...stunned really. 5d

Waking up to an email saying I'm getting a free book is always the best! This is the second book I've won via raffle and I've already collected enough points to get a free book of my choice. Hm, I totally missed my chance for the Queen's Assassin so got to wait for the next interesting one xD

This is the first time I've read anything by this author but I've heard a lot about her so I had high expectations going into this. I really liked how it started and the lore (ASSASSINS SCREAMS) but as I continued the #excerpt, it just followed your typical #ya book. I'll still see where it goes...when it comes out

I randomly picked this one up and I'm not sure how to feel. I only got to read the excerpt and it reads slowly but it has a lot of aspects I'm wanting to read, like the ww2 #historicalfiction and possibly gay vibes?! I haven't seen anyone tag it LGBT but Miss Hetty calling Lucy beautiful? HMMM #animals #bookishfirst #arc
