Mini-Reviews is something I’ll start doing on this blog because I read these books but never got the chance to review them. Reasons may vary from pressed time to incoherent thoughts (at the time). It will include buy links and a brief paragraph on why I like or dislike these books.
Warcross by Marie Lu
Published in September 12, 2017
I like this book because I’m a fan of Marie Lu’s work. It’s a very technological story and although I’m not exactly the most tech savvy person out there I had no trouble keeping up with the nature of the story and its language. The main characters were diverse (although somewhat forgettable as I only remembered some of them when I reread a detailed summary). I once posted on Goodreads about how Marie Lu was getting predictable only to retract my statement after the ending of the story. I would recommend it especially since its sequel Wildcard will be out soon.
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
Published September 5, 2017
I didn’t really like this book and never understood the hype. To be fair, I’m not an avid reader of Adam Silvera’s books. The premise of the story is unique–like a modern-day doomsday prophecy. However, I didn’t connect with the characters or the various points of view that were in between some chapters. I’d say this is a hit or miss book and it was one big miss for me.
Sweet Black Waves by Kristina Perez
Published June 5, 2018
I liked the first half of the book better than the latter half. My biggest issue with this book was that I couldn’t take the characters seriously. What kind of name is Tantris? I know it’s a fake name and that’s the worst part. It’s already fake and it still sucked. Essy acted like a child despite being a groomed princess, and Branwen just lacked character. I skimmed most of the second half of the book and only read the last chapter because I knew about the twist and ending. I probably won’t read its sequel
