Week In Review: June 28th – July 5th

This week I spent all my time at my parents’ house, this means that I didn’t really read a lot, so I’ve only read one full length novel. I have however read some poetry and tried to get my Netgalley ratio up, so you lose some you win some.

Title: Set Fire To The Gods

Author: Sara Raasch & Kristen Simmons

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Page Count: 432 pages

Rating: 5 out of 5.

When I first started this book i almost put it down again. This is because when I came into this book i expected it to be fast paced and intense, but it wasn’t. Once I came to this realisation and accepted it, the book became very enjoyable to read. It’s great if you’re looking for a fantasy book about gladiators that has a lot of world-building and an intricate magic system that relies on gods.

Title: Crown Noble

Author: Bianca Phipps

Genre: Poetry

Page Count: 46 pages

Rating: 4 out of 5.

When I first started this collection I wasn’t that invested in the writing. But there were some poems in this that were just so beautiful and greatly written that i’d recommend this collection just for them. When The Boy Says He Loves My Body and Almosts were two absolutely beautiful poems and some I can imagine myself coming back to in the future.

Title: Twelve

Author: Andrea Blythes

Genre: Poetry

Page Count: 64 pages

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I loved this collection much more than i expected to. It was a beautiful reimagining of this story everyone knows form their childhoods, and the poems were all so widely different while still being cohesive and all retaining the feeling of fairy tales. I would highly recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys fairy tales, or even just have a love for the The Twelve Dancing Princesses from their childhood.

Title: Fangs

Author: Sarah Andersen

Genre: Graphic Novel, Paranormal

Page Count: 77 pages

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This Graphic novel was great, the art style was amazing and the story itself was witty and hard to put down. The way of showcasing the relationship through these small anecdotes made the story feel intimate. I would highly recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a fun graphic novel to read, especially is you love vampires and werewolves.
