“They celebrate love as though it’s power, even though it has killed far more humans than I ever have.” 

To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo. I picked this book up almost immediately after I got it in the mail yesterday. The early reviews were screaming about it so I was anxious to get a start on it. So far, not all that impressed but I’m not all that far in. We’ll see how the rest of the book goes.

“You wanted to feel alive, right? It doesn’t matter if you’re monster or human. Living hurts.” 

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity #1) by Victoria Schwab . I’m giving this one a shot as audio through the Libby app. I loved Schwab’s ADSOM series so I had high hopes picking up this book. So far, it is a little more on the “young” spectrum of YA for me but the narrator is great so I’ll keep going.

“A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.”

Legendary (Caraval #2) by Stephanie Garber. After I finished the first book in this series, Caraval, I had absolutely no intention of picking up the second book. You know what? I’m so very glad I did. The full review is coming on March 9th, check it out!

What do you think you’ll read next?

I think that after I finish To Kill a Kingdom I’m going to take a little reading break. I’m starting to get the burnt out feeling and I don’t want it to develop into a full blown slump. Better to take a few days and get yourself together, right? At least that is what I am telling myself.

What are you reading? Anything good I should check out?

  1. Yeah sadly I gave up on To Kill a Kindgom halfway through; it started out really good for me, but then the plot stalled and I just didn’t think the romance was needed. But I’m stoked for your review about Legendary (possibly funny snarky words?) 🙂

      1. Right? Even though it seems to be a retelling of The Little Mermaid, I think the story didn’t need a romance like what was developing. If you do a review, I can’t wait to read it 🙂

  2. I am SO jealous that you were able to read Legendary early! While Caraval kind of faded in my mind by the end of 2017 I am still quite curious to see what the sequel is going to be like and I’m still waiting to hear back from either NetGalley or the UK publisher but so far no luck!

    Hopefully you’ll end up enjoying To Kill A Kingdom more as the story goes on it would suck if it ended up not being what you hoped it would be!

  3. Hmm I wasn’t sure about To Kill A Kingdom for some reason so didn’t request. I suspect it may have been comparisons to other books that put me off though rather than reviews. I will be interested to read your review particularly if you end up being the one dissenting voice.

    Very happy to hear you enjoyed Legendary. Despite my best efforts it seems I’m going to have to buy it 😉

    1. I can easily see myself becoming that one dissenting voice in the case of To Kill a Kingdom. I hate books that are overly predictable and this one certainly is. I am determined to get through it though. I paid for the darn thing so I’m going to read it…but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.

      There is still time for an ARC request for Legendary to come through and I really hope you get it. I’m still completely shocked about how much I enjoyed it.

    1. The sequel is, I kid you not, about a million times better. I detested Caraval. If it hadn’t had such a pretty cover I would have sold my copy after I finished reading it. Legendary made up for that. A large part of that is because it is told from Tella’s POV instead of Scarlett’s, I think. I kept wanting to box Scarlett’s ears for being so naively stupid but Tella has some pizzazz to her!

  4. Strangely enough, I got the same burnt out feeling creeping in on me while I read To Kill A Kingdom. Which is really odd 🤔 I hope it’s not the book causing it, cause I really enjoyed the book and I’m glad you are enjoying it too 😊
