3 books I don’t have much to say about, but I would like to say something haha. These books have nothing in common and I felt very different about all of them!
Call down the hawk by Maggie Stiefvater
Rating: 4 stars!
I really enjoyed this book! I absolutely loved Ronan’s story, Jordan was also very interesting! I was a bit confused about Carmen’s part, but I’m pretty sure her part will be more important in the sequel! Also Matthew is the best! I love him!
There wasn’t as much Ronan and Adam scene’s as I would have loved. But I saw Lala @booksandlala in YouTube say, and I agree, that if Adam was more present, there probably would have to be drama between them for there to be a ‘good’ story, and we don’t want that. So I feel like the scene’s we got were satisfactory!
So my main reason for taking a star is Carmen’s part. But I’m very excited for the sequel!
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Rating: DNF @232 pages.
I wanted to love this book SO bad! Before reading this book I considered Leigh Bardugo as one of my favourite authors, but now I don’t think I will anymore. This is the only book that she has written that is not in the grishaverse, and I didn’t enjoy it. So I guess I will just consider the grishaverse as a favourite!
I’m not sure if I can explain why I didn’t enjoy this one, I loved the idea of this book. All those cults at Yale, and them doing weird stuff, and Alex having to make sure they don’t do anything illegal.
But I struggled so much with reading the first half of the book, I just didn’t want to pick it back up. I wasn’t really sure what was happening at all, I didn’t care about this girl that was murdered and how it was related to these houses. I think my main problem was that there was lots of information about different houses and rituals, and also I just didn’t care enough..
The only thing I was really interested in was Darlington, but he wasn’t really there, and I didn’t think he was enough reason for me to continue on.
I’m very sad about not liking this, but I want to read books I enjoy, but I might try this one again later!
The tyrant’s tomb by Rick Riordan
Rating: 4.5 stars!
I just love Rick Riordan’s books! His writing is the best, and I just can’t put down the book!
I listened to this one on audio and often found myself playing games on my phone, just so that I could listen a bit longer. This book is so fast-paced, I love the humour and the different relations developing between the characters! I love how Apollo’s character is developing throughout this series, and Meg is just the best!
If you’re into audiobooks, I definitely recommend listening to this series, or any of the other books by Rick Riordan!
I really don’t have much to say about this one, just pick up this series if you haven’t already! I can’t wait for the last book to release next year!
