I’m happy to say that read four books this month! While it’s one book short from January, I’m reading more than I did a year earlier, and I’m very happy about that!
One of the books was categorized as adult, the rest were YA. One of these novels was a NetGalley ARC.
I gave this story 5 stars. I absolutely loved this book! It’s an underwater tale centering around a mermaid on a quest to save her brother poisoned from an oil spill. She meets a merman while on her adventure , with a hidden agenda of his own. I enjoyed Sonia Faruqi’s description of her underwater world, and the merpeople community’s way of life. I can wait to see what Faruqi writes next!
I gave Ever Alice 3 1/2 stars. This book is an ARC I received from NetGalley. The format for this novel was a bit frustrating to read, but I managed to complete reading it in a couple days. I loved that it was a re-telling of Alice in Wonderland, set in the 19th century. There were a couple of gory scenes in this story that made this book quite interesting. I also loved reading about Alice’s return to Wonderland.
I gave this novel 4 stars. I heard many mixed reviews about this story, but I really liked this final installment of the Grisha trilogy. It follows Alina on her quest for third amplifier while Ravka is on the brink of sheer chaos. It was fulfilling to follow Alina and her crew through foreign lands, all while avoiding the Darkling and his minions.
I gave this book 5 stars. This story was a modern day retelling of Alice in Wonderland. I truly loved how Alice is a fighter in this version, battling Nightmares while journeying through a Wonderland dangerous at night. The ending brings on quite a surprise. I’m very much looking forward to the second book of this world, which comes out in September!
I wanted Six of Crows to be my fifth novel, but I’m at the halfway point in the story. It’s just getting interesting!
