5 Things About Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

August 2, 2016 Review 18 ★★★★★

I wasn’t prepared I’ve known for a long time which characters die (Tumblr has spoilers everywhere when your a billion years behind everyone else). I thought I would be braced for the emotional turmoil. HAHAHAHAHAHA WHO WAS I KIDDING! In some ways I think knowing who died but not when or how made it worse. There were so many feels […]

So much pain and emotion This book was challenging to read for the first half. All the characters have things they have to work through, they’re not in great places. Which isn’t unsurprising after what happened Under the Mountain. The emotional turmoil caused me a lot of pain. So many feels. I pitied Tamlin for a number of reasons, but […]

June 28, 2016 Review 34 ★★★★½

Western feel with interesting mythology This world is brilliant. The writing itself is reminiscent of westerns, which I’ve come to love after books like VENGEANCE ROAD and WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER. And then the mythology is Persian I think (I’m not too sure if this is the right culture. I could be way off), with Djinn and some super […]

“That is not the way of it. Your future is not set in stone, my dearest star. A coin turns on itself a number of times before it lands.” THE WRATH AND THE DAWN was a favorite read of mine last year, largely in part due to the couple I shipped (they are pretty epic). But what of the sequel? […]

June 16, 2016 Review 30 ★★★★

My first LGBTQ+ book I don’t know how I’ve managed to continue in modern YA without coming across a LGBTQ+ book, well at least one featuring LGBTQ main characters romance. It’s probably because I mainly stick to fantasy and don’t venture into contemporary romance for a while. Anyway moving on. The romance was good! A little strange at first because […]

Sassy McSassface These characters have always been entertaining but now they’re reaching new levels, especially Harry omg. As he gets older he’s developing an attitude and talking back. And some of the lines he comes up with are absolutely hilarious. Teenage Angst This was the least enjoyable part of the novel honestly. Like yeah teenagers have their horrible phase but […]
