Larissa Ione's books are a guilty pleasure for me. They are problematic but I tend to not think too seriously about adult romances. Nalini Singh's books are also good and I liked some books in her series more than others. I am a few books behind because I haven't been in a paranormal romance mood. Victoria Scwab's books have been a hit or miss. I would recommend the Song series since it's a duology and has all of her trademarks.
I didn't care for her first book so I didn't bother picking this one one. Glad to know I didn't miss anything.
Definitely a great book for the summer! The unexpected romance is an added bonus. I will have to check this book out.
Yep, not for me. I hope you find a better thriller.
I'm going to take a pass on this one especially with the faltering and stale pace. Glad you mostly liked it.
With switching between children's, YA, and adult I try to cast a wide net of readers but also to prevent me from getting burn out. However I do feel pressured to read more adult titles for the blog since I work mostly with teens for work so it's always natural for me to drift to YA.
I feel like black sheep with this book. I didn't like it as much as you did and partly it is because there's so much hype surrounding this author and her books. I was expecting to be moved and emotionally drained after this one but all I felt was "meh".
Bummer about the poor organization but you still have me curious about the book. I don't read nonfiction much but I would like to browse the book at the library.
I agree with the slow pacing but I think it was necessary in order to build her characters and the world. I can definitely see this as a YA/Adult crossover book. I really enjoyed the second book which had a lot more action, tension, and political alliances. Glad you stuck with this one, Heidi. Rummanah P.s. I would suggest reading the Percy Jackson series first with your kiddos.
