I was actually quite surprised by how many books I was able to get through in the month of April. Reading a long fantasy series seems to be a really good way to read more.
A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir
Wow … wow. I read An Ember in the Ashes in March after waiting so long to read it after it came out. I had bought and shelved it because I knew that I was going to love it a lot but I wanted to wait for the hype to die down a bit. Once I read it, I was in love. I wanted to wait to read A Torch Against the Night until closer to the release date of the third book in the series – A Reaper at the Gates. But alas, I couldn’t wait that long. A few weeks later after being in a terrible reading slump I decided to pick it up. My only regret is that I have to wait for the next one.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
I was skeptical as to whether I would like this world or not and I was happily surprised when I completely fell in love with it. It is fantastical and dark – two of my favourite things. I found myself caught in the mysterious storyline and unpredictable characters. I’m very excited for the sequel.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Okay. Okay. I had heard so much, soo much about this series. I knew that I had to read it eventually. Little did I know that I would become this obsessed with it. Now I understand where all the talk was coming from. This one was a bit slow and did read like a debut novel, but I was in love with the world and all the possibilities of the storyline.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
This book felt like Sarah J. Maas took every bit of advice form her readers and applied it to her sequel. As a writer, this was very eye opening to me, seeing the evolution of a writer. I flew through this one, it was amazing.
Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
The first half of this novel was a bit slow, but I still loved every moment of it. I felt that all those scenes were essential for things that happen later in the book and series. The second half of the book was insane.
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
This. Book. Though. I have no words.
