Well, this is going to be a short blog post!
In my 2019 reading goals and resolutions I mentioned that "if I don't read a single ya book in 2019, I'd be perfectly okay." And it still stands. However. I recently became a patron of the library again, so I wouldn't have to spend money on those books and there are few I had my eyes on for a while. Kind of.
The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy #1)by
So, I started this book in 2018. Like, ummm, October of. And got stuck at 16%. It may partially be because I was reading an e-book of it, and it just wasn't cutting it. Or maybe because the book is so boring, and quite generic. I don't know.
I want to check out a physical copy, to see if I will finish this, or if I will finally DNF it.
Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer #2) by Laini Taylor
I wasn't the biggest fan of Strange the Dreamer.
But, I am kind of curious where Laini Taylor is going to take this story. Plus, it's only a duo-logy, so it's not like I am investing in large series or anything.
Hopefully it will be over quickly and painlessly. Maybe I will even enjoy it.
King of Scars (Nikolai Duology #1)by Leigh Bardugo
I don't have high hopes for this anymore.
It's way too hyped. Also, the book is over 500 pages long - what for? When I read Grisha Trilogy I LOVED Nikolai. But, it was 3 years ago, and I also loved Grisha Trilogy, and now when I think about how generic and annoying it actually is, I cringe. Hard.
But, I made my library order this, so hopefully it's worth it at least a bit.
The Bear and the Nightingale(Winternight Trilogy #1)by Katherine Arden
Now, my library has this shelved as adult fantasy, but Goodreads has it as young adult. So I'm not sure?
But it's better to have low expectations and shelve it as ya, so when I'm disappointed I have something to blame it on.
And that's it, folks.
