Six of Crows Review

I know I’m a little late to the party but I super enjoyed this book and I wanted to share my thoughts. Plus with all the hype about this book I’m sure people would be interested to see what I thought.

I made sure to read Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy first, I have reviews of Shadow and BoneSiege and Storm and Ruin and Rising if you’re interested in reading those.

Hidden Gems in Fantasy

This week’s top ten tuesday topic is Hidden Gems in …. I found this topic really difficult, I couldn’t find ten hidden gems in any topic. I considered doing something other than fantasy, but in the end I ended up back with fantasy.

Ruin and Rising Review

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.

There will be spoilers in this review for the previous books in the series, Shadow and Bone, and Siege and Storm, both of which I have reviews up of so go check them out.

Siege and Storm Review

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

Blue Lily, Lily Blue Review

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.

If you are interested in my further thoughts on the series feel free to check out my reviews of The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves.

Overhyped Books

There are so many series out there with a massive amount of hype. Some of these series are deserving of it, others are not. However this is largely dependent on personal preferences.

There are many series that I find undeserving of the hype, so today I thought I would share a few of those. I want to take a moment to thank Ellyn from allonsythornraxx for giving me this idea with her overhyped books post.

Obviously this is just my opinion, so if you think otherwise that’s okay. I would be interested to hear your thoughts on these books in the comments so please do let me know whether you agree that they are over hyped or not.

Shadow and Bone Review

Today I’m going to be reviewing Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I had never read any books by Leigh Bardugo before this but I had some expectations as one of my friends holds the Six of Crows duology in very high regard. My expectations weren’t necessarily very high as that friend kept telling me that even if I didn’t like the Grisha trilogy I would love Six of Crows which set me up to believe I wouldn’t like this trilogy which didn’t turn out to be the case. Wow that was a mess of a sentence. Let’s get into the review.
