“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #1) by Laini Taylor

I have a problem. I both like and dislike this book. I pick it up and feel engrossed in the story even though I don’t particularly like the story so far. Does that make sense? Taylor’s writing style is to blame, I think. The way she crafts the story just sucks you in even though I’m not feeling the plot quite yet. It’s still early, though. We’ll see what happens.

“But death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years.” 

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas

If any of you read my review for Throne of Glass you’d know that I was completely unimpressed. However, a few of you lovely folks convinced me to read Crown of Midnight and do you know what? I’m glad you did. It was a hundred times better than book one. The assassin actually does assassiny things! There is still a weird and awkward love story woven into it but that is okay. I have accepted that I will never like Chaol and moved on. My review will be up for this book on the 14th.

“To say that I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband’s dead body is not entirely accurate. Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floor.” 

Silent in the Grave (Lady Julia Grey #1) by Deanna Raybourn

I have a love affair with Raybourn’s books. I just can’t seem to help myself. After reading her two currently published Veronica Speedwell novels I needed more from her so I picked Silent in the Grave up at the library. I’m trying not to read it at the same time as Daughter of Smoke and Bone but I’m tempted. Can’t wait to get started on it. Murder and a strong female lead all mixed up in a historical mystery? I’m in.
