wintersong

#8 Bang Bang Rating: 3.0-The Goblin King was underwhelming and the plot was convoluted.

carve-the-mark

a-ship-beyond-time

valiant

traitor's kiss

  1. Oh No! I have Caraval waiting on my Kindle for me to read.😱😕 I definitely agree Wintersong was a disappointment. I didn’t buy Carve the Mark because I heard it had some issues with racism. Since I had just finished The Dark Continent by Kiera Drake which had the same problem, there was no way I was going down that road again!😒

    • Yeah, Carve the Mark had some insensitivity but that was the least of its issues in my opinion. Some people loved Caraval but I just didn’t see it.
