Review: THE BEST BOOK OF ALL TIME, ALSO KNOWN AS CHECKMATE (LYMOND CHRONICLES #6)

This is the best book ever written.
It’s the best book I have ever, and will ever, read. I know that in my heart.
It makes me want to turn to all of my five star reads and give them four or even three stars, for this is just unparalleled and incomparable.
It made me cry. It broke my heart and mended it again ten times in every chapter.

If you want a mystery, I recommend you to read this.
If you want an adventure, I recommend you to read this.
If you want a romance, I recommend you to read this.
If you want a book, I recommend you to read this.

Review: THE FINAL EMPIRE (MISTBORN #1)

YES! I loved it! Don’t look at me like that, I was so friggin afraid that I wouldn’t enjoy it. In a way, reading the book itself made me feel high stakes since I was so, so, so afraid that it would disappoint me as much as The Way of Kings did – and that didn’t happen!

Review: FEEDING FRENZY (THE SUMMONER SISTERS #1)

A.W.E.S.O.M.E. „Feeding Frenzy“ is a perfectly-paced mixture of urban fantasy and comedy, filled with hilarious banter between its two main protagonists. Summer and Ophelia are monster hunters, but their work is more complicated than Geralt of Rivia’s in The Witcher.

Review: THE GILDED WOLVES

A nicely written try to recreate Six of Crows with more diverse characters and riddles almost exactly copied from The Da Vinci Code. Thanks to that, it lacks originality and it can never do the things these books did as good as they did: it stays a pale copy of their brilliance, but is an entertaining read, right up to the botched, badly written ending.

Review: A SKY BEYOND THE STORM (AN EMBER IN THE ASHES #4)

First things first: I’m very disappointed because this book included a lot of tropes and things I hate within books – HOWEVER, if you’re okay with these things, you’ll love this one. But I didn’t. I’ve had a lot of negative thoughts about its two last prequels (I still love Ember, but I felt that I got weaker and weaker afterwards) and all of the things I hated, especially in A Reaper at the Gates, are here once again. And there’s even more.

Review: CIRCE

An impressively written retelling about the life of one of the most fascinating women in Greek mythology that introduces an interesting ending to the story. Madeleine Miller’s writing is beautiful and the way she builds up her characters is absolutely impressive: these are Gods and Titans, not mere stupid mortals like us, and they act like it.

Review: LAST ARGUMENT OF KINGS (THE FIRST LAW #3)

A dark, bloody, impressively written wrap-up to a stellar trilogy that leaves room for other books to pick up the action again. I had a hard time getting into this trilogy but in the end all I can say is: it’s one of the best trilogies I’ve ever read. Definitely the second-best trilogy I read this year after the Gentleman Bastard trology (crying intensifies will I ever get The Thorn of Emberlain?).
