Wrap-Up: August 2016

August2016roundup

This month certainly wasn’t the most productive, and I haven’t put a dent in tackling my bookshelf. But I’ve read some captivating books!

The Oddity by Kat Hawthorne

How much can I gush about this small little treat? Kat’s work made me think. A lot. And not many others do. Sure, you get some books that may make you question a few things, but this one made me think. The story is simply stunning and enchanting, and I hope to have this book on my shelf soon!

One thing I can say is that I love me some beautifully designed books. My Ryerson program has taught me how to appreciate the simplicity and the love of book design. Here’s my review.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong 

I’ve read this book about three times, and every time I do, I fall in love with the world building, the characters, and the storyline. What I love about this series is that it still contains similar themes as her other work, but this one has such a dynamic world I haven’t seen before, and I truly appreciate the mythology behind this story! It truly captured me.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong

Moria truly shines in this sequel. While I didn’t like how the twins were separated, I love how they grew as indidivuals. And the mythology in this book is superb! My God, I love it. I cannot wait to read Forest of Ruin.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’ll be posting my reviews for both books soon! And you’ll soon see a big change on my site, so don’t worry. A different name but the same content! One reason why I haven’t been around lately.

  1. I love Kelley Armstrong! Sadly I wasn’t a huge fan of the Age of Legends trilogy overall, but I absolutely LOVED Empire of Night. You’re so right: the twins grow so much in that book, especially Ashyn. I’m excited to hear your thoughts in greater detail! 🙂

    • Yess, another KA reader! I don’t usually find one. So, hi! 😆

      I haven’t read the last book, but I’m hoping it’s good. Empire of Night was excellent!! I was irritated that some of the characters brushed Ashyn off. She may be quiet, but she has such a deep strength not many see.

      I’m writing the Sea of Shadows review now! And I hope to get the second one done shortly. 😋
