REVIEW: UNRAVEL ME BY TAHEREH MAFI

I basically had the same complaints with this book as the first one: too much romance and not enough plot. I'm also having a really hard time connecting to the characters, and I'm not finding myself invested in them and what happens to them.

REVIEW: SHATTER ME BY TAHEREH MAFI

Totally underwhelming; it felt like things were dragged out and that this book served as an intro to the real story. We didn’t really get much in the way of plot, and what advancement we did get was spaced out way too much.

REVIEW: THE MAGICIAN KING BY LEV GROSSMAN

Everything that happened in the plot was just bizarre enough to make sense while constantly throwing things at you from left field. You never knew if a moment was just something said or done in passing, or if it would really matter later on in the story.

REVIEW: THE MAGICIANS BY LEV GROSSMAN

  I was on the fence about this series due to the mixed reviews, so when I found myself addicted and binge watching the SciFi Channel version, I decided that I’d finish out the show and then read the books. I really enjoyed watching the show, and I had just as much fun reading the first book.

REVIEW: REBEL OF THE SANDS BY ALWYN HAMILTON

The author created a world that had a western/gunslinger feel, while at the same time incorporating Middle Eastern influences, and I really enjoyed what the resulting world ended up as. People carrying scimitars and wearing khalats while saying things like “I reckon” makes for a really interesting setting. It definitely stands apart from a lot of the books in this genre in a few ways.

REVIEW: EVERY HEART A DOORWAY BY SEANAN MCGUIRE

When children in storybooks find a secret door/hole in a tree/etc and find themselves in a magical world for a time, we never get to see what happens after. After they return, when they are reunited with their parents and have to face the real world again. In Every Heart a Doorway, we get to see how they cope with this change.
