The Queen’s Rising was super interesting, I loved the whole passion system and it was a little reminiscent of The Name of the Wind for me. I really enjoyed it and it ended in a way that it could have been a standalone but it does have a sequel which I think will be awesome cause I just want to know more about this world. I gave this 4/5. Bring Me Their Hearts was a buddy read I did with some of my twitter friends and I really enjoyed how witty the main character is, she has a comeback for everything. The dialogue is amazing in this book and the story is pretty interesting too. I also gave this a 4/5.

Read this Week:
I was quite intrigued by My Friend Dahmer – a graphic novel memoir about a man who went to high school with Dahmer, the serial killer. Quite an interesting story. Sorcery of Thorns may be my new favorite book of all times – magic, books, great characters – I loved every minute of it and am so glad I got Owl Crate this month and was able to get the pretty purple cover. A Snicker of Magic was a fun MG about wanting to put down roots and solving a family curse. Kill the Farm Boy was fun and weird – a fairy tale that is a little more realistic than most (sort of lol). Character-wise it was rather amusing with everyone’s faults so outwardly portrayed. The Hundred Foot Journey was really good, a culinary adult novel about restaurants and Indian family dynamics.
This week at The Book Monsters, we…
Not much at all.. sorry!
That is all for us this week. So until next week, stay scary Monsters.
