Killing Time is a book I need to review for tomorrow and only remembered last night when I was looking at my calendar. It is a quick read and I’m flying through despite only picking it up twice so far. It’s not the best YA mystery but it has enough elements I love that it is keeping me engaged.
I can’t wait to get back to A Forgery of Roses since I have no idea where the mystery is going and I’m actually enjoying watching the romance unfold.
I had a rough couple of days with A Little Life and I even contemplated DNF’ing it because this book is brutal. It is so graphic and has so many trigger warnings that it is not something I would ever recommend to anyone. I keep having to remind myself that Jude isn’t a real person but the reality is that there are too many people who have stories similar to his which is so awful there aren’t even enough words for it. However, there are times when the book is beautiful and it almost makes the hard times worth it.
What have you recently finished?
The Jade Setter of Janaloon was a fantastic glimpse back into the world of Jade City. I’m looking forward to rereading Jade City next month and then continuing on with the series. This book release April 1.
The Man Who Lived Underground was such a unique story and had a complete unexpected ending. What I loved more though was the essay added at the end of the story where Wright talks about his inspiration for the story and why he added in different elements of the story.
