Today I’m going to be doing mini reviews some books that are being released around this time of year. Firstly I will be reviewing Black and White by Nick Wilford which I was sent by the author for review, and secondly I will be reviewing The Shadow Cipher by Laura Ruby (identifiable as YORK which is the series name).
As a lot of you know, I don’t read a lot of contemporary novels. Often I find the real world boring or quite cliche so I prefer reading fantasy or sci-fi. However there are good contemporaries out there and I’m going to reviews. Some of these I read a while ago but hush let’s pretend I didn’t.
Ruin and Rising is the third book in Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy. I really wanted to read this series before I read her Six of Crows duology (which I know isn’t necessary) and once I started this series I flew through it.
We Own The Sky is an urban fantasy novel by Sara Crawford. I was sent this book by the author in exchange for an honest review and I really enjoyed it. This book sucked me in and I can’t even figure out why.
Siege and Storm is the second book in Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy. Check out my review of Shadow and Bone, the first book in the trilogy. I read both books in quick succession and now I am waiting for the third book in the trilogy to be returned to my library so I can read it.
NOTE: there will be spoilers for Shadow and Bone in this post
I am writing this very soon after finishing Blue Lily, Lily Blue which is the third book in the Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater.
It’s a bit of an understatement to say that I am fangirling over this book. I want to try to get all my thoughts out now so that I can dive RIGHT into the last book in the series.
This review WILL have spoilers for the previous two books in the series but not for this book.
This is my second mini review post in the past few weeks and there will probably be one more as I try to catch back up to having reviewed all the books I’ve read.
This post will cover the second two books in the Starbound trilogy by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner along with the conclusion to the Endgame trilogy by James Frey.
Beware that there will be spoilers in these segments for the previous books in the series.
