So it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted one of these wrap-ups. While, I plan on doing this on a weekly basis from here on out, I will not be catching up with the weeks that I’ve missed. Sorry if that bothers you.
Binti: Home by Nnedi Okorafor 4 stars I listened to this on audio, as this is a re-read. I also have a full review on my sister blog. This is a review book. I enjoyed it. This was a great continuation from the first book, but it ends on a cliffhanger so I recommend having the third book ready to go. I like Binti, as a character. I can understand and relate to her struggle, as I am sure that others can. I like watching her grow into herself.
Malice by John GwynneMalice by John Gwynne 5 stars This was a print book that I picked up from my own bookshelf. I participated in the The Faithful and the Fallen read along, hosted by booktuber Frankie Reads. Oh my goodness, guys! This book was amazing. It’s long as hell, but so worth reading. The way that Gwynne that pushes and pulls the characters into position, the way that he reveals the plot and engages the reader is pure magic. The fact that this is his first published novel makes this even more amazing. There are so many moving parts, I am not sure how he kept everything straight.
The Headless Ghost by R. L. Stine 5 stars This is a print book that I picked up from my bookshelf. This was my son’s bedtime story, and he was excited that it was a Goosebumps book. I had a lot of fun reading this as well, and I definitely looking forward to reading more of these to him.
River of Teeth by Sarah Gailey 3.5 stars
I listened to this one on audio. I picked this one up because I have the second one for review. While I did enjoy it, it was not as good as I was expecting. It was not exactly what I was expecting. I was expecting a tale of a pregnant woman riding a hippo through the whole novella. And while that did happen, it wasn’t really what the story was about.
Shade of Wicked by Jeanine Frost 5 stars
This is a print book that I picked up off my bookshelf. It was a review book sent to me by Harper Voyager. I have a full review on my sister blog. I really enjoyed this book, it was my first book by Frost but it will definitely not be my last. If you are already a fan of Frost, you will want to pick this one up. But if you are not, if you’ve been waiting for an entry point, this will be a great place to start.
In case you have not heard, I am no longer on Goodreads. (I am but my activity there is limited.) But if you want to follow my reading and such, you can find me on Riffle Books here.
