And today's topic:
What was the best book you read in May?
Well, I have three, actually!
I don't know why it took me so long to read this series, but I have to admit - I'm so glad that it did, because I got to read all three books in the series back-to-back-to-back!!!
I adored this book - and I loved Katsa and Po, even more!
For more details, see my review here.
If it's at all possible, I finally found a sequel that I loved even more than the first book! Don't get me wrong, as I mentioned above, I loved GRACELING - and I definitely can say it has been a long time since I've read a book that I didn't want to put down, or kept going back to re-read pages! But...I have to say the relationship between Fire and Brigan in this title, really won me over! Maybe it was the horses. Maybe it was the whole knight in shining armour thing...I dunno. But I love me some Brigan.
Stay tuned for my review!
Third book in the series, this one picks up right after GRACELING - but ties all three books in so nicely, with a great big bow!
While there wasn't nearly enough romance in this book - and I totally get that wasn't the point - I still found that I missed the relationships so evident in both GRACELING and FIRE. This title was the darkest of the three, filling in almost all of the blanks behind Bitterblue's treacherous father, King Leck. And it ended, leaving the reader to wonder, will there be a fourth book?
Well, I sure hope so!
Stay tuned for my review on this one, as well!
Net / net: May was a good month of reads for me! I love when I come across a book - or better yet, an entire series - where I just can't put them down!
Sadly though, I'm now suffering to find something good to read - and have started 5-6 other books (UNRAVELING, PANDEMONIUM, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, and DITCHED to name a few!), but can't seem to get past the first few chapters!
So with that, I leave you to answer (enter my selfish way of finding great new books to read!):
