blurb
Kalebeth
Blood of Elves | Andrzej Sapkowski
post image

Since finishing City of Girls I haven‘t been able to get into another book enough to keep reading. I felt like I was in a readers block (that‘s a thing, right?), hence my 5 month hiatus. I took a break from reading altogether and than needed that escapism again. But this time I wanted to try something out of character for me. My boyfriend has been a loong time fan of The Witcher and suggested I give it a go. I am only five chapters in so far 👍

Kaddele
Das Labyrinth des Fauns | Cornelia Funke, Guillermo Del Toro

I only went into the bookshop to check if the book I‘ve ordered has arrived yet. I didn‘t mean to buy this. Just in and out. No looking around. Definitely not spending money as I have no book budget left for this month. It turns out, I have no self control either. 😇

Anna40 Oh no... temptation ... I would probably have done the same 😉 1w

The Monster of Elendhaven | Jennifer Giesbrecht
Pickpick

A monster. A murder. A plot for revenge. This is a twisted and horrific dark fantasy novella.

A quick but engrossing novella. Looking for more from this author.
3.5 🌟

First two books of the year. Both I would say are 3.5/5.

The Merciful Crow | Margaret Owen

Pickpick

The second of three I knocked out last weekend.
A YA Fantasy! One of the first ones I've actually not DNF'd in maybe a year or more? I think the caste system really sold me, and the world felt fairly tangible and real for a YA. The romance also took quite some time to set up, which I appreciated. It took a definite back seat for most the novel, a huge win.

Best Served Cold | Joe Abercrombie

I‘m surprised that Abercrombie didn‘t turn this area of the First Law world into a trilogy as well. Then again, trying to deconstruct a revenge fantasy over three books is a tall order for anyone...

The Bone Charmer | Breeana Shields

Pickpick

This was a unique book. Saskia comes from a long line of bone charmers, but doesn't want to be one. There's a bone reading ceremony that all teenagers go through that determines their career and potential spouse. Saskia breaks the bone and her reality spilts into two and she lives out two fates at once. The chapters alternate between Bone Charmer Saskia and Tutor Saskia. It was a really solid book. #YA #fortunetellers

Tomorrow, the Killing | Daniel Polansky

I actually liked this one better than the first of the series. Dark, gritty and graphically brutal at times, Low Town is an ugly place, and the Warden is an unpleasant character. Drug dealer, addict, murderer, former member of the secret police, he has few virtues but he's like a train wreck you can't look away from. 4 💥💥💥💥 1/2
