Windwitch by Susan Dennard is the sequel to Truthwitch (my review). This is a fantasy series, I read the first book a year ago and really enjoyed it. This review will probably contain spoilers for the first book in the series so make sure you’ve read it first.
I’m finally up to the review for Winter by Marissa Meyer. This post won’t contain spoilers for Winter but it WILL contain spoilers for the previous books in the series. I also have reviews up for Cinder, Scarlet and Cress so go check those out as it will probably greatly help you understand my thoughts on the series.
The Other Slipper by Kenechi Odogu is a novel based off the tale of Cinderella but taking it in a different direction. This book is set in a fantasy world that is reminiscent of the worlds fairy tales are usually set in. I read this book as an ebook which went really well.
I was given a copy of this novel by the author for review, this does not in any way impact my opinion of the novel.
My review for the third book in the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer whoo let’s go. I loved this book, as I am writing this I have finished the whole series, and this review may contain spoilers for Cinder or Scarlet, you’ve been warned. I have reviews for Cinder and Scarlet already up so reading those may be helpful for you so you understand my opinion. Now let’s dive in.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer is an amazing series that I have currently finished but I have too many thoughts to lump the books into a series review. Beware this review will be from the perspective of someone who knows where the series ends up so I might overlook some details etc. You can read my review for Cinder to see my thoughts. I refer heavily to themes or topics in that review in this post so reading it will be incredibly helpful.
**also there WILL be spoilers for Cinder in this review**
Heir of Thunder by Karissa Laurel is the first novel in the Stormbourne Chronicles. This is a fantasy novel with a touch of steampunk. This book is probably not one that I would have picked up on my own but I am glad that I did because a lot of the elements are ones I personally quite enjoy in novels and therefor have included in the novel I am working on. It was really interesting to see how Karissa did these things and I think reading this book has helped me to improve my writing.
I LOVED Cinder ok, I’ll say it now and that position is not going to change. Note that any issues with pacing didn’t apply to me because I read this all in one setting in a car trip so… yeh. It’s really good and has got me super inspired to write a series just as awesome. Also take into account that at the time I am writing this review I have read the next two books in the series so this review might overlook some flaws because they make sense/are fixed later on. Read on to hear the rest of my thoughts.
Lodestar is the fifth book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series by Shannon Messenger. This series is aimed at middle graders however the later book show more ya themes. I have been a fan of these book for year now, since just before the second one came out. You can read my review for the first book in the series, Keeper of the Lost Cities. Note this review will have spoilers for the previous books in the series. Read on at your own risk.
Morning Star is the conclusion to the Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown. You can read my reviews for the previous books in the series, Red Rising and Golden Son. Plus there is a second trilogy about the same world/characters a bit in the future (I think) that has the first book coming out later this year and I am so excited.
