I have been skipping some reviews lately, especially on books I don’t have a ton of thoughts on. I don’t like leaving books unreviewed, so here are some quick reviews for books I’ve read since the beginning of the year!
Realm of Ash (The Books of Ambha #2) by Tasha Suri
I LOVED this book! The main reason why I didn’t review it was because I read it in about a day, so my memory of it is hazy. This series has some of the loveliest romances in fantasy because the way Tasha Suri writes slow burn relationships is just so good. I highly recommend both books in this series!
The Song Rising (The Bone Season #3) by Samantha Shannon
I keep absolutely devouring these books. While they are so filled with interesting conflicts of emotion that I love, the worldbuilding still confuses me a bit, which is why I haven’t given any of them five stars. The slow evolution of the main relationship in this series absolutely kills me and I am so excited that I caught up just in time for the next book to come out! I am very excited to see where this series goes as we enter the second half.
Black Sun (Between Earth and Sky #1) by Rebecca Roanhorse
I thought the beginning of this book was really slow, but the second half really picked up! Combined with the abrupt ending and mixed feelings on the POVs, I felt like this was a solid start to a series, but not necessarily the best book by itself. There were certainly characters that I liked though! The world also was super cool and a breath of fresh air.
A Sky Beyond the Storm (An Ember in the Ashes #4) by Sabaa Tahir
I have a lot of feelings about this one. I overall enjoyed it and thought it was a good conclusion to the series, and even though things happened that I wanted to happen, I still felt a little disappointed. It’s a hard feeling to explain, but it felt a little predictable and I wanted to be a little surprised. It was still a great series though!
A Thief Among the Trees (An Ember in the Ashes #0.5) by Sabaa Tahir
Apparently, there are going to be three of these prequel graphic novels. I’m not quite sure they are necessary, but I did really enjoy seeing little Elias and Helene.
Can you see why I didn’t write full reviews on these? I just had a couple of sentences to say about each! Sometimes I just don’t have much to say about a book, even if I really enjoyed it.
