Rule of Wolves Book Review

It’s always sad to finish novel, and even more so when it’s the end of a series, which in itself is a good thing. If an author can create enough attachment to characters and stories that you’re left wanting more when all is said and done, then they have succeeded in producing a quality piece…… Continue reading Rule of Wolves Book Review

King of Scars Book Review

The more I read the Bardugo books, the more impressed I am with her story telling ability. This book told a tale on three fronts, intertwining two of them quite nicely, with the third set to merge in Rule of Wolves (hopefully). It was fantastic to read the perspectives of two favourites (Nikolai and Nina),…… Continue reading King of Scars Book Review

Crooked Kingdom

It takes a lot for a book to keep me sat in one place and sacrifice sleep in order to read hundreds of pages right through to the end, and that’s exactly what this book did. I sat down at page 200 and didn’t look up until over 300 pages later, when I finished the…… Continue reading Crooked Kingdom

Six of Crows Review

Did you know Six of Crows is not a story about six crows… crazy stuff! Anyway I’m going to start by saying this was an incredible read and by far the best of what I’ve read from Leigh Bardugo so far. She’s created six incredible characters, told perfectly through the eyes of five of them,…… Continue reading Six of Crows Review

Ruin and Rising Book Review

I’ll start by saying I thought Bardugo wrapped this trilogy up beautifully. There was a great improvement on pace of the book, coming out of Siege and Storm, which at times I felt to be quite slow. The start may have been slightly slow (and frankly redundant) but once Alina and her nearest and dearest…… Continue reading Ruin and Rising Book Review

Siege and Storm Review

I’ll start by saying the story in itself – across the trilogy – is good, despite my few issues with this book. I feel as though it plays the role as a ‘filler’ book for the trilogy thus far, which is disappointing given that Bardugo has created such a vast and fascinating world. It was…… Continue reading Siege and Storm Review

Shadow and Bone Book Review

It disappoints me that it took a Netflix series to draw my attention to this series, but nonetheless I’m so glad it did. This story puts a different spin on the Young Adult, Fantasy genres, combining the setting of Tsarist Russia, Russian folklore, and realism all in one fantastic world. We are introduced to a…… Continue reading Shadow and Bone Book Review

City of Ashes Book Review

Leading into the sequel, City of Bones left us with quite a bit to unpack, namely Jace and Clary’s now familial connection, the betrayal of Hodge, the return of Valentine and Simon and Clary’s force romance – though in an unpopular opinion I was rooting for this one at this point in the series. In…… Continue reading City of Ashes Book Review
