I know this book has been getting a lot of love all around. But somehow it just wasn't for me. The world building and lush imageries, as much as I enjoyed them, I found a little overdone, slowing down the pace and leaving the characters much to yearn for, the two things that are important to me in a book.

Cilka's Journey | Heather Morris

Pickpick

Although the author didn‘t go into detail the sufferings of the prisoners and the brutality of the gulag, and that there was more telling than showing in her writing, Cilka‘s Journey was still an eye-opening read, and made me teary a few times. I won‘t say more as I don‘t want to give anything away.

The Water Dancer: A Novel | Ta-Nehisi Coates

A powerful debut novel. Beautiful writing and brilliant storytelling. Captured love, racism and slavery with heart and brutal honesty. If you enjoy historical fiction and magical realism, you might enjoy this too. Full review on hookedonbookz.com

Bloody Genius | John Sandford

New book from one of my favorite authors. I prefer the Lucas Davenport novels, but I‘ll take Virgil Flowers in a pinch.

Inland | Ta Obreht
post image
Pickpick

Obreht is back with her lush lyrical prose, this time set in the lawless, drought-ridden lands of the Arizona Territory in 1893. Meet Nora, an indomitable frontierswoman, and Lurie, an outlaw turned cameleer for the Camel Corp. Their stories told in different timelines - Nora's in one day, Lurie's over decades. The ending blew me away. Very slow paced but beautifully written. Obreht is truly a literary genius.

Gods of Jade and Shadow | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Pickpick

Definitely gonna be one of my top reads of the year! I loved everything about it! It had got very strong character portrayals (even the minor roles!), and plot and pacing were on point! Felt like it was for YA but not targeted/marketed as so. Still, it was a very good read! Strong pick!

***#earc thanks to #NetGalley for a fair review***

BUT ...
🛑 Most assuredly a companion to Deliverance Dane (not a standalone)!
🛑 Annoying characters all around - Picking up 10yrs later when we‘re all adults adulting in that boringly adult way! Work no matter how you spin the spell is never magical!
🛑 I‘m not sure how the interludes tied to the main story???

In short, if you devoured Dane, you‘ll enjoy this! Haven‘t read DD?? Start there!

This wasn‘t what I was expecting! I have not read the source material, so I found myself a little confused and missing all of the magic readers seem to connect with this world. Overall, I‘d vote:

✅ Lovely magical interludes of ancestral past (would‘ve loved more of this!)
✅ A race to the potion finish.
✅ Very well researched - ✋ To the point of feeling a very scholarly drag on the plot lines.
