There's a reason TikTok is drooling. Serpent (I'm going to call it serpent, it has an incredibly annoying name but I promise it's a great book) has all the tropes you love in romantasy; it gives spice, vampires, enemies to lovers to enemies, one bed, resentful training montage, who did this to you, and more.
A reread of Gideon the Ninth for a book club that will hopefully lead to me finally reading the rest of the series, plus a few literary fiction pieces I'm really excited about!
Not many changes since I got SO off-track in January. I'm already enjoying Empire of Pain and really looking forward to The Cloisters.
Book Review | Godkiller
A perfect fantasy book, in the archetypal sense: perfectly plotted, familiar yet creative. It reminded me why I fell in love with reading in the first place. Here's why.
So excited to read this Claire North I got as a present. And the Cloisters was a Barnes & Noble discount purchase that looks like so much fun.
Book Review | Bloodmarked
I CANNOT BELIEVE THE CLIFFHANGER THIS BOOK ENDED ON...
Look at all these awesome YA adventures I have to read! I have the physical editions of Bloodmarked, Iron Widow, and The Jasmine Throne, so I have no excuse.
Book Review | The Atlas Paradox
Somehow, the sequel lived up to the unimaginable standard of its dark academia predecessor.
I am so excited for Kingdom of the Feared and will probably be finished tomorrow. And I really need to get to Transcendant Kingdom because I know I would love it!! Let me know what books you KNOW you'll like but have been sitting on your shelf for... forever.
Book Review | Babel
Babel is the boldest indictment of the evils of English academia I've read to date. That's what I was waiting for, though, through The Secret History, If We Were Villains, The Atlas Six, and even Legendborn: violence.
