Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood – Goodreads
I enjoyed this one quite a bit, my review is here. I love retellings and I love Shakespeare so I’d say this was a good introduction to Atwood’s writing style, and gives me a good idea towards what her writing style is and how she explores characters. Someone has pointed me in the direction of the Blind Assassin book so I’m adding that one to my library list.
A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab – Goodreads
I somehow always forget that this isn’t a YA series but an actual epic fantasy, so it took me a little bit to get back into it and switch gears but once I did I was fangirling pretty much until the end. Lila, Rhy, and Kell, and now Alucard are just perfect…I need so much more of them. Also hell yes for bisexual characters! I’m really looking forward to the next book because I need more of this magic in my life.
The Unbound by Victoria Schwab – Goodreads
I’m trying to clear out some of my series that I’m behind on, so when I requested A Gathering of Shadows and Ruin & Rising I also requested The Unbound. I think there have been too many years passed since I read The Archived because this one sort of fell flat for me. The writing is still gorgeous I just didn’t enjoy the characters as much.
Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – Goodreads
I wasn’t going to start this since I have a few others I need to finish, but after the less than stellar The Unbound I need a pick me up to keep me from going into a book slump. So far I’m enjoying it but I’m only about 30 pages in, so it’s hard to say BUT Marie Lu provided the illustrations and they are perfect.
